Hey, it's been a while :)First off I have a massive apology to make for those who have been waiting - if anyone's still about, i'm sorry guys, it was rotten for me to leave you hanging! I hope you can forgive. (New update might grease the path to forgiveness perhaps?)Hey, it's been a while :)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Life the past half a year has been difficult, and some things had to take a back seat. I never intended for things to slip as badly as they did, but when it rains, it pours! Despite my absence the comic is in no way dead and I will shortly be getting back into the swing of things now stuff is a little bit better. The art might be a little wibbly sometimes but i'm doing my best. (Currently suffering a particulary nasty bout of 'it's not good enough' syndrome. You get this when you compare yourself to others too much, it's not good, don't do it!)
Book three was seriously hindered when my computer decided to throw the mother of all wobblers and trash half the comic files. That put me on a massive downer. Especially when my backup drive was nowh

so, sunstone volume 2 is officially announced for april
aaand this time i won't be an idiot XD
i should explain XD
last year i made a comic called death vigil. issue 1 sold relatively well.
and then i fucked up hard XD
see, i never knew that preorders regulate print runs for indie books. yeah turns out if you don't have movie money behind you you don't print that many issues because you are likely going to lose money XD
so as i didn't know about importance of preorders, i never mentioned them to fans and readers...
this reflected on the printrun of issue 2...and we underprinted.
aaand issue 2 became very hard to find and the book started tanking XD
irony was people wanted to buy it, it was just that there weren't enough printed.
i won't repeat this mistake again. i got burned hard once and that was enough XD
so , if you want to have a guaranteed copy , preorders are the only way to h

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty? Leave it up to our deviantARTists to think of a way to have it both ways – but left over as a feast for the eyes, preserved eternally on the digital planes of deviantART.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

It was a great experience; I got the chance to work on multiple projects in the company, doing everything from technical drawings, character concepts, to storyboarding and illustrations. I was constantly challenged to produce faster and better work, including some digital and matte paintings, which I still struggle with immensely. By the end of the two months I was finally getting a handle on things, but alas, all good things must come to an end. I wish I could share some of my work with you, but I am sworn to confidentiality.
I made some good friends while I was there; the art director is a friend to the animation program leader at LASALLE, and he purposefully challenged me to start practicing digital painting. I was sat next to the senior storyboard and concept ar

I enjoy reading the daily news and having a cup of coffee every morning. I scan the headlines on my laptop and eat up all the latest scientific discoveries, local weather, and international news. I enjoyed reading about the asteroid that came close to hitting Earth because it reminds me of how fragile and insignificant we are here on our little blue marble. Our place in the Universe is pretty much meaningless in terms of time and space, yet we think we are not only important but THE singularly important species. A silly thought in my book.
