Streaming 5:00 am (pacific)! Early Riser Stream! Painting Dune stuff.
Late night painting!
I put up a different one to ask about what people would like to see me livestream instead, that seems to make more sense.

Before I made a poll trying to determine what I should paint more, and I listed a bunch of options covering the subject matter that I often illustrate. That was a silly move, since many of you replied with saying that you follow me for my style, which is very revealing and weird/flattering to hear. I appreciate it that you guys think I have any unique style at all, because I never really think that's a strong point of mine. Honestly, the way I view my own work is that my style is very inconsistent since I enjoy trying a range of techniques and never really felt I was good at one in particular. A jack of all trades, if you will. When I compare how I work on Dune stuff as opposed to, say, my Amalur stuff or pinup ladies, it's like switching gears for me, and I fear people won't recognize that it's the same artist. I don't really know myself what ties them together stylistically or if they even are.
On one hand it's good to have a flexible range of styles, but on the other it's hard to be associated with one particular, marketable way of working. I guess for me it's fun to do everything. Some people will like me for my range, others will be annoyed. C'est la vie.

For whatever your reasons are, Thank you very much for keeping track of my work. I also didn't realize there were still people from my Elfwood days watching me grow up! That's a long time (15+years)! I appreciate it.
at 5:20 pm Pacific, 8:20 Eastern! Going to be doing some pinup ladies.
These peeps need plugs because they deserve it and they got stuff goin' on. Talented humans:

David Kaye, artist extraordinaire. He's totally open for commissions right now!

My friend Eliot, showing at Emerald City Comic-con this year!

ncoming Infinite Crisis work coming in once I get it dressed up and pretty.


in 10 minutes (6:30 Pacific, 9:30 Eastern time)! Prepare for rainbows.
...Yup. My sentiments about it summed up on this shirt:…

So ya, now that I'm a bit more settled, have my computer set up, have internet, finally got a new wacom pen, and have a steady schedule, I can start livestreaming again. My next one will be at 8pm Pacific Time (since I'm on the west coast now!) on March 3rd (Monday). Wish I could do it earlier but I do need to work during the day. :/ If you could join it would be super-swell. Is there a less obtrusive way to update people of my livestream events instead of making a Journal Entry for the announcement? Do people use Shoutbox at all? I don't have a Twitter account yet. Hnnnggh. Ah well, until i figure that out I'll just use Journal Entries to update.

I also post when I'm gonna stream on my facebook page:

Long time no update, friends. Sorry, the last few months have been hectic.

I've left the east coast and moved to Seattle to work at Motiga Games, an independent game company making a new game. I can't say much about it but I'm pretty excited to be working with such a talented team. I've been out of commission for the past couple of months mainly because I haven't had a chance to sit down and relax, I'm still unpacking boxes! I'll update again as soon as I can.


Since I'm totally unemployed while I wait to move, I was able to squeeze a couple hours in between finishing contract work and packing to do some painting! Yeey! Come earlier if you want to help my configure my audio, lul. My music playing never seems to work the same way every time.

Come on dooooown, ask me about art, life, or personal questions that intrude on my privacy and I will answer with UNFORGIVING HONESTY. Maybe.

gonna stream in about 5 minutes for a lil' bit.
Heya! I'm a part of this anatomy.... thing!

It's a big Kickstarter campaign. you can help by visiting the site and spreading the project around if you like and want this book to become true.

Alright, I think I got a handle on this live stream thing... and I need your help!

I will be livestreaming at 8pm Eastern Time tonight for at least an hour. Since this is the first time I'm trying to do this officially, and since this is really just to entertain you guys, I'd like to ask you:

-What do you want to get out of a livestream?
-Do you prefer music or talking?
-How long and how often do you watch livestreams?
-What would you prefer I paint?

and lastly, if you have any questions you'd like for me to answer during a livestream you can ask here. This way even if you miss it and watch it later I can still answer it.

I'll also set up a separate poll so there will always be a way to ask a question or give me suggestions. I will post when I'm livestreaming here, or on my facebook page:

Thanks a ton!

Been slammed a bit lately, working on the release of Turbine's project Infinite Crisis!

This is a MOBA style game set in the DC Multiverse. If you're not familiar with the DC Multiverse, basically there are multiple universes that run their course parallel to each other within DC which allows them to continue the same characters along different story line paths, and sometimes these paths cross and shit gets 'effed up. I didn't know about this stuff either since I only really read Batman graphic novels, but now I know a LOT. I've read many more DC comics in order to catch up on the characters- yes, even the New 52 stuff. It reminded me of preparing for work on LOTRO, where over the course of three years I became a Middle Earth expert.

So ya, now you know what I've been working on. I've mostly done concept art, of which there is a LOT because of all the Multiverse variants, and then all their skins... as well as some of the splash art for random stuff, including a few wallpapers (Which you can see here....… Although my buddy and contractor Phong Nguyen did Green Lantern, Gaslight Batman and Gaslight Joker). I'll post some versions that are less cropped and covered in black soot when I can.

Back from winter vacay. I didn't paint but I doodled a lot, so I'll probably be posting those on my blog shortly ( I went a little stir-crazy, so now I got a few ideas for concepts and illustrations... mostly Dune-related. OBSESSED MUCH?

Also, I'm older since my birthday is on December 31st. I'm 28. Yughhhh;lskjfl;sdfkjnfuck. Running out of time, every damn day. Soon I won't be able to dance as my knees atrophy, and I'll be stuck at the computer like that gross thing in the first Blade movie, except a lot skinnier.

Check out my poll, I'm curious to know what gender you guys are, if I couldn't get creepier. Call it market research, I suppose. I'd be happy if the numbers were relatively even, I like to think that my renditions of dragons and girls in their underpants can appeal to everyone. what's interesting is that women beat men in followers on my Facebook page ( by a small margin, but I'm going to chalk that one up to the fact that there are also statistically slightly more women than men on Facebook. I honestly don't know what the statistics of DA genders are, anyone have the numbers? I'll probably do another poll for age.

EDIT (1/4/2013) : Oh looky what the fuck I found:…

  • Mood: Questionable
  • Listening to: House music all night long, SAY WHAT
  • Reading: your comments!

So this happened:

Ya, I dunno. It was like 2 am on a Tuesday, and I made this shit thinking it would be another way to promote my work, and then immediately regretted it. I mean, why would you need two feeds of the same work? But then very soon after I got a big wave of people visiting, and I hesitated taking it down. Then I was like, "Well nobody visits my blog work and this has already seen way more traffic, maybe I'll just combine my blog and my DA here." And I thought that might work as an outlet. Also, people were +friending me just to get a feed of what I was doing on facebook anyway, so now they can just go here instead. So basically this is for people that don't blog but follow Facebook more regularly.  Good idea?

I've heard things about Facebook pages becoming defunct or not working like they should because of how the advertising/notification system works, Could anyone who uses pages tell me more about that and how the traffic system is?

Either way, if you have a moment, +like or share my page. I would appreciate it.
