Wow. This is a stunning piece and a very complex image. Where to even begin? I guess I'll start with color, since its what caught my ey...

This is an incredible piece of Fanart! The detail of the linework, the gritty textures and shading, the beautiful choice of lighting, t...

One of my goals over this summer is to get my life better organized. I've moved a lot. I've collected stuff. I've hung on to friendships. I've generally let my life get cluttered up with out dated things I don't even know I still have. I have boxes left over from moving years ago that I never unpacked and no longer know whats in there. Also- no more one sided friendships. Folks I hung out with regularly five year ago don't have time for me anymore. I need to stop making time for them.

And more art and better because that is always on my list.

Artwise, I want to keep painting as much as possible but in between classes is one of the only times I have free to do that, so I'll try to cram in as much as I can.I'll try to do sketches the rest of the time because I think I underrate how useful and important that is. I want to keep working on my character portraits because they have been a really great exercise for me. I'll probably end up splitting time between that and landscapes. Skyrim has given me loads of new inspiration to play with where those are concerned.

Somewhere in all of that I should maybe get a social life of some sort as well. : )

Anyone else have goals for over the summer?
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: Hans Zimmer
  • Watching: the eraser smudge up my sketch
  • Playing: skyrim
  • Eating: blueberry pie
  • Drinking: mango juice

I am a 35 yr old pc gaming, cat inheriting, book nerd! I practice western martial arts. I am a fair hand at painting and drawing.

When I was in high school, my friends made me watch the entire Star Wars trilogy in one sitting. It introduced me to the fantastic realm of possibilities that is fan art in Fantasy and Sci- Fi.. I was hooked. From there I became interested in comic books.
I studied Illustration at Columbia College in Chicago until I dropped out. I wasn't out going enough to be a professional artist. I continue doing art now because its something I love and want to improve at but on my own terms this time around.
Anyone interested in commissions or purchasing an original please send me a note-
I'm also on tumblr-

Please do not steal my work- IT IS COPYRIGHTED. Ask permission.
On art theft:…

Current Residence: Chicago
Favorite genre of music: mainly Metal but I'll listen to almost anything.
Operating System: Windows
Shell of choice: I'm out of mine - won't go back
Wallpaper of choice: I would rather paint on the walls..but no one ever lets me.
