Toonme challenge!

First up we have a nice and creative post for the #toonme challenge. @valkangel did a pretty amazing job turning one of his photos into a cartoon style character. Bravo, I really dig the photo!

What is up guys! @valkangel here with another post!

So there's this trending hashtag in instagram right now called #toonme. So basically what you do is draw some part of a photo of you in your specific style. I was amazed by the entries of other artists and so I decided to join the bandwagon, but at the same time do something a little different. So here is my entry to the #toonme challenge! -@valkangel

This author is a graphic designer that loves anime, which basically means you can find tons of amazing artwork to enjoy on their profile, feel free to check it out, you won't regret it!

The Story of a Mariachi Group

For our third post today, we have an interesting life story about the Mariachi way of life. @proto26 tells us everything about how he got into the world of Mariachi bands and what happened to them. With many photos and a video included, this post is really an interesting piece of writing! Great work @proto26!

Greetings, everyone! How did I get into Mariachi music? Well, growing up in a Mexican household, Mariachi was a mainstay. Songs like En Mi Viejo San Juan and Amor Eterno are my dad's favorite and some of mine, too. This and a desire to play the trumpet led me down the path of the Mariachi.
After I finally learned how to play the trumpet during my first year of highschool, I wanted to keep practicing during the summer. One Sunday at church, I asked to join their group,where a few friends from grammar school played as well. They were called Mariachi Lupita, named after the Virgen de Gudalupe, the church's patron saint. -@proto26

This author is a gardener and a collector and the posts on his Steemit profile are really diverse. You can find a bit of everything on there so go ahead and check some of them out!

Next up we have a really creative video that probably took a lot of work and dedication. @pacific-yt took some time to shoot live scenes and implement himself as a game NPC. There isn't much more I can do to describe the post, so I urge you all to check it out for yourself, It's really fun!

Hey everyone. This is a super special video to me. I shot a bunch of live action scenes, and put myself inside of the game as an NPC.

This video is my best one. Hands down. This one is all about being a Necromancer in Oblivion. I show you the build, and give you some tips on how to play it. The best part, is you talk to me as a character. Thank you everyone for suggesting this, I had so much fun! -@pacific-yt

This author has made over 1k videos on youtube before deciding to join us on Steemit! He loves to talk about games so if that's what you're into as well, check out some of his other videos!

Reading in the light [ Art process included ! ]

Images property of @lunaticmoon

Finally, we have this incredible artwork called "Reading in the light"! The painting looks terrific, it reminds me of the indie games style. What's even more amazing about it is that is completely made of different colored squares and nothing else. Amazing work @lunaticmoon, amazing!

I had so much fun doing this, Oil paints yesterday were so so fun but when it comes down to truly personal fun, flat colors and shapes just takes the cake for me. I feel like i can describe form far more easier than any other method by just straight holding shift and clicking! -@lunaticmoon

This author is a digital painter and a pixel artist and his profile is filled with many, many, many spectacular works for us to enjoy, please, check them out, they deserve the attention!
