There's a great sense of kinetic intensity to this one thanks to the particle effects. One can easily imagine a storm of nearly invisib...

For some reason DeviantArt won't add the description I keep trying to put in my latest deviation. So here it is as a journal, which also serves as a quick update on my goings-on:

Just got back from helping scope and write insurance claims in Beaumont, which was heavily flooded by Hurricane Harvey. We stayed in an RV park. My mom had her horse trailer, but her work partner took the other bed. Thankfully the guy in the RV next door worked nights as a crane operator and only slept on his couch. He let me use his bed in the back. He was incredibly helpful and even kept watch over our crockpot meal when we had to go to Houston to meet our regional supervisor.

It went really well, and it was an adventure. But I'm glad it's over. Here's the tattoo that I designed for the guy who let me sleep in his RV. He didn't really want tattoos, but he's a rough motorcycle owner and wants to have some designs around in case he does get a tattoo one day. This way he can get a discount at the tattoo shop by giving the artist something to work off of.

I was still trying to finish it when we had to leave. Would have completed it, but if we'd stayed a minute longer the RV Park owner would have charged us for two more weeks

And that about covers it.

COMMISSION - soldier dossier
Drawn for :iconlevyathyn:

Crosshatching might not have been the right choice here. And I believe I made his eyes too small, in addition to using too much crosshatching in the halftone areas. But we must live and learn.

He almost looks better darker (but more crooked). i.imgur.com/4ogIL0y.jpg

COMMISSION - Tim Caricature
My good friend Tim015 was a good sport and paid me to do a good caricature of his good face. And it was good fun. I need to exercise these cartooning muscles some more.

He gave me permission to post his real face alongside the caricature:

Gears of War 4 - 'Hold on Scion'
I think about Gears of War a lot. Lately those thoughts are mostly consumed by Gears of War 4 and its new enemies, the Swarm. But then there's their leaders, the mysterious Scions... who behave exactly like the Boomers in the original trilogy. Which is to say, dumb. And slow. And while they may be accurate with their instakill guns, so too were the Boomers. Who were dumb. And slow.

Unique death animations and gore physics would go a looong way toward beefing up the Scions without actually changing their AI. Say, a frag grenade, Boomshot, or Dropshot exploding at their feet would only obliterate their legs, leaving the upper half to hold itself up on the ground for a brief moment before expiring, with a furious growl seeping from its lips. I've got some more ideas from a notebook that I'll upload next.

Also, "Small Soldiers" was a huge influence on my childhood and I couldn't resist a chance to finally reference it.

Turns out this plz looks just like me: :iconcrybabyplz:

Hey there, I'm an aspiring artist who used to be a farmer and plans to co-write (and draw 100% of) a graphic novel in 2017. I'm not ready yet, but I should be. And I will be.

I grew up on Calvin & Hobbes, graduated to Gears of War, found delight in just about everything fictional, and (fair warning) I just so happen to like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I've introduced my kid brother to all of these, and while he thinks Pinkie Pie is just about the funniest thing ever, he much prefers chainsawing his way through Locust hordes. Proud of that lad.

As for what I do, I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil. I also write when I have spare time, and at the moment (decade?) I'm finishing a fanfiction. One day I hope to write novels and start my own webcomic on the side. Until then I plan to do a lot of job applications and commission art.

Remember that if you don't like what you see, you can always look elsewhere.
