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.

Your feature in ImagineFX (19) was excellent. I like your philosophy. I agree with Spyro that it's good to see another pro posting work on here.

I just got my copy of ImageFX 19 and felt warm and fuzzy that you were in it! I loved the feature and initially I wondered why some of the art looked familiar then I remembered I saw it on DA first! Rock on with your sock on! :hug:

hey, your work is really good, im sure the gnomon dvds are good, as they have some top notch/quality stuff. Also about the comic book thing, i went right off spiderman when they started going the way you mentioned about 10 years ago i think, so traditional style i think is much better :), well for some things

I've got a feeling your stats will go through the roof no matter how you feel about it haha

it's great to see established artists posting here, it's a nice place once you build up a little network around yourself, i've recieved more serious critique and help here than anywhere else and have made a lot of friends (moreso than the more serious illustration boards/communities),

thanks for making your stuff available, been a fan a long time :beer:

Hey, the praise is justified, loved the ImagineFX article, unfortunately I haven't got the cash to get the Gnomon DVD's yet, but I intend to...can't wait to see how you use Photoshop.

Sketching is so individual, though Im sure I can get to learn some from DVD 1 also, but the Photoshop work is so much "this technique is here, try it out" still...

Anyways... Dan did a great job pushing your page..

Heh.

You should really be thanking yourself for having such an amazing artistic talent. And oh my god, that sounded retarded. :XD:

But on a more serious note, you have an amazing gallery. Favoriting your art was just a treat to myself. And lordie, I wish I could've found your stuff sooner! Because like Adonihs pointed out, it *is* amazing.

I'm also working on a graphic novel hopefully fully painted,

Oh that's going to be the shiznit! Glad to hear that you'll be able to do something for yourself for a change. Damn. It's going to be eyegasmic. I definitely hope to see more work from you soon! :)
