Hey DA I just want to say thank thank you to everyone who in the last few days have made comments on my work. I also wanted to thank Adonihs for spreading the word about my gallery on DA thats extremely flattering. I just started uploading more stuff this month. Yo Adonihs you rock man much appreciated!

Also I'm not tryin to be all modest but the lack of page views doesn't really bother me because I don't participate as much or post as much as some of the other artist who I feel deserve those page views.

I have a few prints for sale and the original files are very high resolution so anyone get a print let me know how it looks, I may just order a few to see how the work looks printed from Deviant.

I also want to aplogize if I cannot respond back to everyones comments or notes, I'm tryin to make a living off this thing we call "illustration" so my time is spent doing it and with my family. Please understand however that I appreciate each and every comment or fav I receive.

If you do like what you see here and are interested in my techniques rather then post questions here that I may or may not get back to, my gnomon DVDS will basically give you all the info you will need to start using some of my techniques. Sorry for the cheap plug but I wish I had the time to really answer all the questions unfortuantely I dont often so the gnomon dvds and Imaginefx issue 19 are both excellent resouces to learn my techniques. Gnomon is presently trying to get them to blockbuster so you may be able to rent them out soon for a cheap price and will benefit those who cant afford the pricey dvds.

I'm also working on a graphic novel hopefully fully painted, lots of action and crazy beasts aliens and buff heroes and heroines, villians you love to hate and environments just as crazy as the characters. I'm a little tired of all the typical "comicbook" brightly cg colored books that are out so I'm hoping to do my own take for good or worse and bring back a more traditional look and feel. Sorry to ramble about it but I'm hyped at the thought of doing art for myself he he and not clients.
I'll definately post some stuff as soon as it is available

Again thank you all and keep drawing and painting, never say die!

WOW you all rock much love and thanks to you all. I was at epilogue but seems unfortuantely things have diesd down a bit at epilogue, I hope chad and company do okay. The community here is unbelievable and everyone seems very supportive of their fellow artist, thats really bad ass.

The graphic novel is a ways off from being complete but hopefully when I get something cool ta show I will.

all the best DA and thanks you so much for the kind words it makes me work harder.
