The Journey Begins, aka Steemit Red


Steemit Red

I've pounded down a few coffees, read a lot of Steemit posts and my drying eyes have turned a new shade of red. I'm going to call it Steemit Red. Maybe I'll make some clothing from it. Steemit Red cat socks, or Steemit Red boxerbriefs. But This is gonna be a great journey and I thank you in advance for jumping on it with me!




I'm an illustrator and writer (ok, trying to do the latter but by now I'm not so shit at the former :)) and have been working in video games for a long time. I stopped working officially a while back and unofficially have been freelancing for a year here and there, during which time I've also been travelling! Namely:




Almost bought a ticket to the moon then realized 'holy F shit that's expensive.'



I'm here to share some art with everyone and a bit of writing, see what people like to see better! Also, with art, I'd like to give advice to anyone who'd like some tips. I no longer paint traditionally because everything I own is in a 13kg bag, and nice tubes of acrylic paints get heavy. I'm more about the digital space, Photoshop and iPad, but fundamentals are the same. :) I'll try and post some videos of process when possible, but definitely some stories of how something came about.

I can't give much advice about writing as I'm still on my hands and knees on that one. Maybe you can give me some!



I have no idea! :) Right now I feel like this ^guy trying to drive a space ship. Support welcome. Votes welcome. Resteems welcome! Crits welcome! Welcomes welcome! Questions welcome!

Now isn't it funny that How is an anagram (drunk version) of Who? And NOW I WON can just about be read backwards?

Take care all and Keep it Steeming.



I love your art and illustrations!! That rough sketch was amazing. I'm following you right away. I'm an artist too and i really look forward to more of your post.
Check out my sketch and follow for more.

Hahaaaaa.. Nice sketch. Is that just pen? That's really nicely done. Hmmm... If you squint, those two guys kinda look the same don't they? :D

Thanks!! It's just pen; black pen.
Lol...they kinda do. One being the younger version of the other.

As they say in Thailand, same same but different

I just came from Thailand and everybody was saying that all the time! There was even a hotel or restaurant (not sure which) in Ko Lanta named "Same same but different" and in the markets people were selling clothes with that text printed on them.. Don't understand their obsession about that slogan :D

hahaha yes they do look like brothers from another mother!

Welcome to the community @oneminja! Hope you will bring some awesome content to the platform. Are those pics your design? They look so dope - great work! Let's stay connected!

@travellit Hi! Thank you! Yes, they're all my work. I have a looooot of work some of which very few people have seen, others no one has seen, and some have been around here and there. I'll be sure to share some more.

Welcome to STEEMIT... STEEMIT red "nice one"...

Soooo, this is awkward @kingoris. Because "kingori" used to be my nickname that my older brothers had for me when I was a kid. Hehe. Ask @hitwill, he's my brother. True story. It was "Kingori, King of the Black Antelopes." I have no idea why :D:D Does it have a meaning for you?

Thanks for the welcome :)

Woaw. Oris is just the short form of my name though. Nice to have same nickname when you was littler ,just that you're missing an "s" 😀..

It's a small world indeed.

welcome to the crypto-currency universe

Thank you for the welcome @lopezdacruz :)

Welcome to steemit @oneminja ! Looking forward to your art and your stories!

Hey @hitwill I hope all is well! Thanks Again for resteeming. I have done the same! It is so GREAT to have @oneminja on the GREAT STEEMIT PLATFORM! It just keeps getting better and better! Your Devoted Friend @extraterrestrial :-)

Thanks, guys! @hitwill good to hear from you, bro :) Yeah, this guy's killing it with his posts :) Thanks for the welcome @extraterrestrial! Oh man, your video. hehe love the song! When did you land on earth?

@hitwill is the MAN! Thank you VERY much! Thank you so VERY much for following me and the compliment! It means the world to me! I arrived on earth several light years ago and I even witnessed the dinosaurs LOL! :-)

Funny guys, those dinos, eh? :)

@hitwill it seems you have a passion for art, so i would be checking out your blog as soon as i drop this comment.

P.s i also have passion for arts especially photography and grahics. It's a great job @oneminaj is doing

@morgangreat, many thanks for the nice words. It's how I chose to invest in myself. Art also gave me red eyes ;) Sometimes in college I would paint 15 hours in a day. Wooooo...

Wow 15 hours a day? Now that's bloody 😂

Dude, I tried 3 different brands of caffeine pills, and I've fallen asleep walking once, and once while tutoring English.

Builds character :D

wow, you are a strong man indeed. Heads up

Nice work :) Welcome @oneminaj

thank you very much you are a very good person @hitwill

Thank You for promote valuable content , You are great person ☺

Greeting steemian all
My new leader just joined three days ago
Thanks you so much @hitwill
You are the beast

A HUGE WELCOME TO THE GREAT STEEMIT COMMUNITY! It is a HUGE blessing to have you here! Out of this world art and writing! EXTREMELY talented! You have been to amazing places! I absolutely love the space ship! The moon is one amazing place LOL! I'm already a HUGE fan of yours! Thank you @hitwill for resteeming! I can't wait for more of your posts! I'm proudly resteeming, commenting, upvoting and following! All the VERY best! Positive Energy! Great Karma! Your Friend @extraterrestrial :-)

Oh man, thank you kindly! Much much appreciated! I hope I'll keep you excited and entertained with my doodles going forward :) Thank you for resteeming, commenting, upvoting and following :)

I'm excited to meet you on this platform. Welcome to Steemit. Explore and have fun.

Thank you, greatness! And what a name you have!

welcome to steemit!

Thank you @aaronnn47. Glad to be here!

Wonderful introduction, and Welcome to the community @oneminja! I've just recently taken up art, and drawing in particular. Let me say that it takes mounds of skill to do what you do, so much love! What kind of video games have you gotten the chance to work on?

Hey sperm! You are one in a million! (hahaha!) Appreciate the nice words. Art's great, keep at it, it's worth it.

I've worked on mostly sports games (those which have been released) like Tiger Woods PGA tour, Need for Speed (kinda sports), Bike Unchained and The Fourth Phase on mobile. But also a VR game called Awaken. Also worked on some other sci-fi/fantasy titles that, because it's games, they never got released. That happens more times than you can imagine. Maybe every 1 game released has about 6 that aren't released.

One in a million indeed ;) looks like you have a good sense of humor as well Hahaha! I've always wondered how much time it takes for the artists of video games, talk about detail! Glad to have you in the community, I'll be checking your stuff out so make sure to keep it up man!!!

Sperm tells me to make sure to keep it up, it sounds like a threat hahaha.

Challenge accepted :)

welcome dear! love your content—will surely follow you—its fun to read. keep it coming!

Thank you @michellpiala :) Look forward to keeping you entertained!

looking forward for that too. :)

Excellent introduce. I like the art and travels. I follow you

Great intro, you are highly welcome,
Greetings from @voicefrochrist channel, we welcome you on board, we urge you to try @least once in a while to write an article in order to promote, preach and spread the word of our Lord Jesus here on steemit.

For more insight about @voiceforchrist
@voiceforchriat is a Christian channel here on steemit that preach, spread and promote the word of GoD.

Why on steemit?
You will agree with me, many steemains are so obsessed, that there spent almost all their time on steemit, withiut having time to read their bible again, thats why we came up with this channel to able steemains access to feed on the word of god.

Do well to follow this channel for daily devotional, prayer point,etc.

Once again you are most welcome.

Hi @voiceforchrist. Thanks for the welcome and the kind words :)

I however can't write an article or any promotion on your beliefs as they are not mine at all, though I do respect them. Good luck!

I'm looking forward to see more post from you. Steemit needs more people like you. Please share your experiences about the places you travel as well. Followed, upvoted by @motherearthist

And I love the quote about making friends with strange cats. hehe. That's me.

Let's be friend then. I'm glad you like my ancient quote. That's how I feel most of the time; being a strange cat it's not a easy job :)

Thanks so so much for the very kind words, @motheearthist :) I appreciate both them and you!

hello Stimiano very good job also I invite you to go through my blog

I love your art! A strong grungy, futuristic vibe. I would love to collaborate with you on a project!

Hey dude! Thanks for the kind words :) Glad you like. If we find a project we like, I'm down.

Totally! I'll continue to follow your post, and if something creative we could collaborate on comes to mind, I'll get in touch with you. Keep creating!

really cool drawings!

A really warm welcome @oneminja! Amazing things you create! I am an artist too! (From Amsterdam) and also a newbie around here :P How are you doing? Great first post and the illustrations are really nice! keep up the good work! xxx Laura

Hey @artbylaurajansen :) Thank you very much. I'm doing great, hope you are as well and not too frozen up there!

I’m fine too thank you! So far so good ;)

I LOVE your work here! NICE!! And WELCOME :)

Many thanks, @mimulusamsterdam! Glad to be here, wonder what I'll post next :)

your post is very good and I like it, I'm very glad when you stop in my post, if you do not want anything too because I'm quite happy if we become a better friend thanks

Thank you man :) I'll be sure to stop by!

These are amazing dude! Welcome. I just started using this today. :)
How did you get your text to be Bold?

Hey @andyhtu. Thanks! And Welcome. Yeah, not as straightforward, eh? I'm new too! Just spent the first couple of days watching videos and reading about it.

Well the most efficient answer I think is to join Steemconnect if you haven't already (sort of a hub which you can use to connect to any service/product on the Steem blockchain), and use that to join if you haven't already. Busy is the same as this, exactly the same blockchain, and any post you put there is also here, and vice versa. It's just a different interface/skin in a way. When you use that to write your posts, you can easily see how to quote, italicize, bold, etc your words. It looks like any editor.

Otherwise, on the Steemit Welcome page there's a post about Markdown which is what Steemit uses to format text (or I suppose you could search for posts about Markdown) and you'll get instructions on how to use Markdown to format your text.

Hope that helps!

thanks appreciate the response !

You can also join discord groups for more help

Mind sharing that discord link?

Welcome @oneminja you're going to fit in quite nicely, I can tell :-)
