We Now Return You to Your Regular Broadcast

Hey everyone I am back. Computer is back and operational and as you can see the blog got a bit of a make-over. I have lots of artwork to post so make sure you stay tuned. I also have some exciting new gigs coming up, once I can give you the specifics I will. I hope you're as excited as me.

We Apologize for the Technical Difficulties

Well recently I have been having trouble with the disc drive on my laptop. It now appears that my comp needs to be shipped to a far away land to be fixed. So long as they can fix it otherwise I will be apparently given a brand new computer. Got to love that Geek Squad coverage. What this means is that I will be offline for the next two weeks or so. However when I get back I will have my full Beowulf illustrations to upload. Sorry that has taken so long but they are finished and all I need to do is actually post them.

That is all for now, I shall see everyone in two weeks.

Practice Makes Perfect

As of late I have been hitting the books hard. I decided to do a bit of figure studying as well as some exploration into new digital techniques. So Picked up some interesting digital books. One by Don Seegmiller, The DIGITAL PAINTING BIBLE, and one compilation of workshops released by ImagineFX. I have only begun to scratch the surface, but so far they have been quite helpful.

I also got some figure books. Good old Bridgeman and one by Robert Barrett.

As you can see I also got a fun new toy. I got an Intuos 4 tablet. This tablet is a thing of beauty. A lot better then my old Graphire 3. I've been experimenting with some new brushes and techniques in Painter, which has been quite fun.

Since I am spending time trying to learn new things, some of the stuff I have done I don't believe is worthy yet to show everyone out there in the webbernet. But as soon as I get comfortable with some of these new techniques expect bigger and better things.

Also in the last image you can see my baby and my tablet. The image I have for my wallpaper is a piece by Stanley Lau, the wallpaper itself is thanks to ImagineFX.

That's it for now but have faith in a bright future.

Back Up in Your *** with the Resurrection

This post will be short and sweet. I am back. After the long absence of my computer I have it back and thus the posting shall resume in great amount. First up my silly movie review.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Two days ago I had quite an unpleasant day. It was a very windy day and I was waiting for a bus. I was carrying a bag and a drawing pad with some loose drawings in it. So I knew I had to be careful considering the strength of the wind. Unfortunately I was not careful enough. As I lifted the drawing pad the wind decided to open it. I dropped my bag and chased after my papers unfortunately I had lost all the work I did the previous day.

Sadly this was not the bad part. As I said I had dropped my bag...... it contained my computer. When I checked on it I realized my screen was damaged. I took it to Best Buy and now it is shipped off to get fixed. Luckily I have the three year total coverage. This does mean however that I will probably be without my computer for a month.

This means the new digital work I had wanted to do will be on hold. Including my Gothic Vampire. I had finished it and sent it to the client, however, I wanted to make some changes and try something new. So it will be awhile before I will be able to.

I will have some limited Internet access in the upcoming week so I will try and post as much as I can in that time. Including my movie review, a new self port, a figure painting, an interview I am doing, and my recent trip to New York.

So here is the update on some of my projects.

Goth Vampire: Postponed
Squid vs Shark: On the Back Burner
Mythology Character Designs: On the Back Burner



I should have some new posts soon if I do not I'll make sure I get back to you as soon as my baby gets out of the hospital, until then.
