I'm curating a Prince of Cat's Tumblr with lots of Prince of Cats art and relevant images, music, video and culture. ...if you're into that sort of thing.
I talk Prince of Cats, GratNin and the constraint similarities between BeBop, Hip Hop and Comics over on Newsarama if you're so inclined.
As always, thanks for keeping an eye out.

I think i've become obsessed. So much to learn! I just want to get better.
(Somtimes I look at my gallery as a whole and see how crazy
it looks in terms of content and style O_o)
I guess i'm still finding my artistically.
I'd love to get into something storyboard/animation-y
I created a Vimeo account where i'll be posting my animation

First Scene Previewhttps://vimeo.com/42477094First Scene Preview2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Phew. That lighting is hard. I think I will reserve it for more important shots.
Anyway, the first scene I've done of Fire Tiger vs Acid Panther. If anyone's curious.
I won't upload any more scenes, as I'd like the film to be at least a bit of a surprise.
Oh wait, I just realized there are a couple of frames cut off the end. Oh well, not missing much.

Something you need to readI'm so tired of the old school notion that there is even such thing as "cheating" in art.

Tip of the Day: Experiencing a fallThe experience of falling down is as important as getting up in order to succeed. Sometimes failing for a while is what we need to truly appreciate it when we obtain our goal.

Be sure to make room for your dreams in this life as well.

Skyrim pic update!I've been working hard on a new Skyrim picture, it's half done and you can check out the progress so far on my FB page:Skyrim pic update!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I might have to leave it for a little while, I've been trying hard to focus on my drawing skills as much as I can. Lately I've been struggling a little bit, sure you might see the work I've done and think it's okay but it takes me waaaaay too long to come up with it. I used to be able to get a character pose drawn up in a matter of minutes but now it's taking up to an hour or two to get it right.. So it's quite a painful process sometimes.. It's only been like these recently because I had spent so much time on the digital work that my penciling has been neglected.
I've enrolled in an Advanced Drawing class that goes for 6 weeks, I'm really looking forward to it because I've never actually been taught how to draw. It'll be nice to have some guidance and may

Working for free is the answer. You might balk at this because some critics say this gives the appearance that there is NO value to skill and talent. However- consider this: Working for free gives you amazing experience. It allows you to practice on someone else's project, see your work in print, establish a reputation and learn- big time. People who won't work for free WILL pay for a course! What better learning experience is there than to work with a client- such as a library or an independent book store or a school- producing poste
