HAPPY 2013! and Epic gamesHi DA friends,
I know it's been awhile and it's shameful that I have not updated or posted in several months. A couple of personal and professional things happened that has occupied my time.
The personal is personal and I keep for myself. I can say on a professional tip is that I've been working as a senior concept artist for Epic games since August 2012. I'm very fortunate to be there as I'm in the company of some of the most talented and brilliant game developers and artist in the world. Everyday I learn something new or see something amazing.
This is no excuse for not doing my own art as I will still do that and try to post when I can. I've missed the community here and seeing all the rising talented artist here.
Happy New year all and lets keep doing more kick ass art in 2013!
New Game of Thrones "Lord Snow" printHi DA,
I usually don't like to plug available prints as they are listed in the images pages. Since I've gotten a few request for this one and a few others, thought I would let you all know
that I have made my Game of Thrones painting available as a print on Deviant. The painting was an original commission for a board game and was done with traditional oil paints.
Thats a rare in istelf as I work digitally 90% of the time.
here's the direct link

The Art of J.P. Targete
personal blog: http://www.targeteart.com/default.htm
from the book:
"From the depths of my imagination and from all the media I was absorbing I was able to to create anything I wanted with graphite and paper. I hadn't even hit puberty yet but I was creating worlds a child should never create. Screaming beasts, barbarians, savage amazons and alien worlds .
There was no "Mouse" there was no "Bunny" there was only my world, and it was some times scary as hell. "

NEW ART and NEWSHey DA,
I just wanted to check in and update everyone on whats been going on. First I have completed some interior art for a children's novel titled "The Sword of Darrow" written by father and son duo Hal and Alex Malchow and is published by Benbella Books. You can pre-order at Amazon here:
I've posted a few images in my gallery of some of the art for that book.
Also I'm working with a well known Film Director on a potentially fantastic project. I can't reveal any details yet and it maybe avwhile but I'm really excited about it. I'm also in the process of working on a project with Bad ass Zakk Wylde, famed guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society. I'll keep everyone up to date when I can confirm details.
I also wanted to take the time to thank everyone for posting and supporting my work and the other fantastic artists on DA. We are all connected through art no matter

Happy belated New Year DAHey DA,
2011 is upon us and it looks to be a very intersting year. Looking forward to seeing more great work from everyone and doing more art this year for myself.
I've posted some new work in progress pieces on my blog, so if your interested in seeing them head over to my blog:
I'll set up a work in progress folder in my DA gallery but in the meantime you can subscribe to the blog for updates.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Has it been 5 months no it can't beDamn has it been that long since I've posted on my journal? Frazetta passed away in May, holy crap it has been that long.
My apologies all, I've been so busy that I've lost track of space and time, the world is a blur to me I just see pixels, ha!
Just updated the gallery. I have alot more but cant show it right now.
Comic book update: Well I completed the first issue of Radical Comics: "The Rising" you can get info here on it
Got some mixed reviews of the art but mostly positive, I'm glad since it was my debut into sequentials, I have so much to learn though.
Unfortunately I won't be doing the rest of the issues it's become difficult to juggle other higher paying jobs and "The rising" so I've had to bite the bullet on that and move on, I wish those guys the best.
Hopefully though with time I can start doing my own personal projects which includes a graphic novel and start posting it for you all to see, fun stuff.
I hope everyone

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S
JP Targete illustration dvds availableIn his first of three DVDs, J.P. takes you on an exciting creative and technical journey showing you how he begins a fantasy illustration, Dark Riders, purely from imagination. He covers the early stages of his process, from the initial idea to thumbnails, concept design and the final color sketch. J.P. also discusses how character personality, costumes, weapons and action poses affect the narrative of the final illustration. You will learn the creative process of composing your thumbnails, and how to use segments of your designs for future reference as you get closer to the final dynamic illustration. Over the course of the lecture, J.P. covers the uses of traditional media like markers, acrylic and oil paints, discussing the advantages of each.
Over 2 hours of lecture.

Twenty-three years before the crippling of Crown Prince James III
He was fourteen and she was probably aged about the same, give or take a few years. It had been an hour since he'd met her.
He hated her already.
She scowled behind him and likely shared the sentiment as they scampered up the hillside in a desperate attempt to escape the roaring mob that seemed to be growing perpetually larger and coming ever-closer. Gabriel would have liked to say that it was all her fault he was in this situation, though it was his careless nicking ofwhat was it? A chicken that started the first old woman running, but how was he supposed to know that she'd stumble and fall and everyone else would think he'd assaulted her?
He hadn't. He'd taken the chicken, snapped its neck and run, because he hadn't eaten meat in weeks and he was starting to feel the affects on his already weak limbs.
This is what happens, he thought. This is what happens when you live like th
