Howdy Ya'll!
 First off, let me apologize deeply. I've been away from Deviant Art for a good solid year and a half now, and by no means was it a planned hiatus. I've been working with a VR firm doing concept art and design, among many other things, and the work came so rapidly and time passed so quickly that I didn't even realize how long I'd been away until I came up for air much later.

A lot of you have been asking about commissions and commenting on my past posts and I thank you guys so much for your continued interest! If I've missed one of you comments or messages PLEASE let me know here and I will do my best to answer. 4,700 people is a lot of responsibility, and I don't take that lightly.

For the moment, I'm not taking on any new commissions, but that doesn't mean I haven't been working on new art. I have been posting a bit on my INSTAGRAM account here: @chadwickjcoleman…
..and I've been working a lot on improving my skills in areas where I thought I may have been lacking before. All of it in hopes that it would allow me to create more and better work for you guys and myself.

I've also been working on my comic book and a few other book projects! I don't want to make any promises just yet, but there will be a lot more to come if I can pull it off. So wish me luck for everyones' sake!

Very best and cheers,
 ~Chad C.

Venom - v02
 I’d been planning to execute a Venom piece for a while and wanted to get it out before the movie release...Alas, here we are days after... (been busy). Still thought you guys might like to see the work in progress so far (I may or may not push it further).

I'd done a previous sketch version where I played with his eye design a bit, but ultimately settled on this one.

In terms of his aesthetic, Venom has always been one of my favorite character looks (considering he's had tons of iterations). His speech patterns alone make him so much more a complex character (being that he is multiple entities speaking as one). His relationship to Spiderman I also feel is one of the best "hero to villain" pairings in all of comics.

Hope you guys dig the piece but I haven’t seen the movie yet! So Plz no spoilers. Cheers!
Iceman - v02
 So, I “completed” this piece a month or so ago but wasn’t content with it enough to post yet. I let it sit on my desktop for days trying to figure out what about it was bothering me...and now, I can no longer tell, so oh well. Iceman!

Oddly enough, the strangest thing about this character, to me, isn't even the character himself but more the iterations of the character... 

The first time I encountered him was on the 1981-86 cartoon 'Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends,' before I'd ever read a comicbook, but then again as part of Jim Lee's Uncanny X-Men in the 90s. This is where I learned he was a mutant and part of the X-men team, but then it occurred to me that this was the same character from Spiderman's team and was confused as to why there was no mention of mutants or X-Men in the 80s cartoon (there may have been) and why in the 90s no one was making mention of Iceman having been pals with Spiderman previously..?

Keeping things "canon" in these stories is obviously difficult when spread across time.

At any rate, because of this introduction, he's actually the first of the X-Men team I ever knew.

So cheers, Bobby Drake.
