Oh yes i did it! It is 70% done, i need to build the other side of the tower and the interior, a lot of job left! Anyways, it took about 6 hours to get there, and a Timelapse is coming! I want to thank everyone who helped me, and 0hai for having loosed his whole day to film this xD
I hope you like it! It's up for scoring at threadless.com, if you like it, you can help me by checking "email me if printed" and voting 5, it takes a short time to do it but it's a really big help to me
Anyways here's a sample advert created for the 50 page art book that I'm going to submit to the Archie Booth at Comic Con 2013. This is part of an important project that will give Archie Publications an impression that I'm downright serious about what I can offer to their publications department should I be accepted for an internship one day.
The logo design and concept 'Sonic Art Collection' (which will be explained a little more in a future journal post) was created in Photoshop. I decided to keep it clean and simple.
So yeah more details and a repeat announcement of this contest this week. Anyone can enter so get cracking! If you got any questions please don't hesitate to PM me or post a comment here. Good luck! *thumbs up*

Last but not least, we got the super awesome Dawn Best (who has contributed her artistic talent to the good folks at Archie Publications in the past) with her thoughts on the subject of 'heroism' in the Sonic Archie comics and how they will bring influence to readers, and perhaps, have them learn a thing or two about life.
I liked how she focused on about family, roots, and believing in yourself - your identity.
What's really cool is the fact that she even did her own drawings for the magazine! I wasn't expecting it but hell yes is it bloody awesome to get some originals like that, I don't take it for granted - so thank you Dawn!
Anyways hope you guys and gals will gain something from each of the writer's (who are just as much of a fan of the Sonic comic series as you are) profound wisdom contained in their write-up. I certainly enjoyed reading them and will take those ideas with me in life. *thumbs up*
i) It's a gift to one of the greatest additions to the Archie Comic's talent pool working on Sonic the Hedgehog series (of all time) - He's been working for over 8 years as a professional freelance illustrator and contributed countless illustrations and comic pages to my all time favourite comic series. His persistence, dedication to good story telling through sequential art and passion for the Sonic series is a killer combination. It's about time the guy deserve something special and this project is a small token of my appreciation.
ii) Another portfolio submission for Archie Comics - a company that I'd like to work for one day (legitimately that is, and from anywhere in the world). I've already impressed staff of all levels at the Archie booth during my two visits to International Comic Cons at San Diego and well it doesn't hurt to do it again! My Sonic Art Collection magazine and now the Pirate Plunder Panic graphic novel are books that will last. Knowing the people that I admire (who make the comics happen) and who possess a copy of my work is very satisfying.
iii) I genuinely enjoy working on a project like this. It teaches me ALOT and I gain ALOT from it - in ways people may not comprehend from face value. And also, especially when it's based off my favourite comic series I can't go wrong.
Nevertheless this project has been on a three week turnover. It started at New Years and if I can finish this book by next week I would have proven myself and to anyone who may realise my talents in illustration, graphic design and management that I can make a 114 page book in just three weeks. Way past cool!
Also I'd like to thank all of the participants who have contributed their FANART, QUESTIONS (to Tracy) and SHOUT-OUTS. You guys did a great job! I'd like to thank my two contributing artists to the project for their amazing artwork: and . I'd like to thank and for their special PIN-UP artwork.
I'd like to thank all of the Archie staff who have passed on their messages for the 'Thank you Tracy' page. Respect! I'd like to thank who naturally proof-reads my work - she's a life saver.
And finally I'd like to thank Tracy Yardley for being awesome. Keep on being awesome dude. I'll see you at a convention in the distant future for sure (whether it be Summer of Sonic or one of the Comic Cons via East/West coast). *thumbs up*

I designed cubic boggart in minecraft world, for fun ;D someone gave me the idea to put boggart into the world of minecraft; it's not really a mod so you can't have boggart in minecraft. used photoshop.
Now that the Construct Quarter has been released I can add this guy up here as well! I was really excited to keep contributing to Hearthstone now that the original WoW TCG is no longer running, and I had a great time with this one, particularly since there hadn't been a whole lot of art done of him up to this point.
Next in the series of paintovers for Heroes of the Storm, and back to WoW now (I'm going to try to keep them varied but we're not 100% even in the spread at the moment) - this was really cool to work on, since I also had a chance to design her 'Heroes' look, which we took to be somewhere in between her WC3 form and where she is in WoW now.
