Wow - I've just got a Daily Deviation on my Lizard Man painting so I thought I'd celebrate with another first for me - a journal!!  :w00t: I'm not sure on what criteria they're chosen but I'm surprised it was this one - but still happy none the less. :) I'm pleased that those who liked the image also took the time to go through my other pieces in my gallery and I'm encouraged by the extra comments and increased watchers too! I was already seriously behind in my message centre and now that I've had this DD, I've got a lot more to get back to - but I will but please be patient. The

Hey, thanks for watching- you have some great renders on here! Any plans to return to doing more?
Absolutely - I have loads more I've done but just not uploaded yet.

I'm spending most of my 'well' time doing more for the Shadow World RPG setting books ( The rest of my 'well' time I'm playing Starcraft. Giggle 

Unfortunately, chronic migraines take up the majority of my time. Unimpressed 

One day I will use one of my Starcraft2 hours to do a mass upload! Woohooooo! I like to write about my uploads - which takes time.

I'm having fun with the beta currently but am looking forward to my Collectors edition (which includes the SC Manual with your size chart)! It was those sizes that let me to your page in the first place and I'm glad you got the gig!! Do you have any more blizzard goodies on the way? 
Glad to hear it! Art (and Starcraft) are both important to keep up, hah. I'm sure you're coping with the migraines the best you can.

As for me, I don't have anything else with Blizzard in the works, but hopefully I'll get the chance again in the future! It really was a great opportunity. For now, just more fan art. :)
Did you get a lot of feedback from them regarding the sizes of the units or was it your own research?

There are some units I don't recognise and you've labeled a few from the unfortunately unpublished Starcraft Ghost. (I would have definitely played the hell out of that!! Maybe after a successful FPS launch of OverWatch, they may give Starcraft Ghost another try again... I can live in hope) Sweating a little... Where did you get those sizing information?

Some of the ships could have benefited with an overhead view as well as a side view - the battlecruisers in particular (as well as the tempest - he was a difficult one to recognise without the label) Wink/Razz But they are all awesome!! :happybounce: 

I love the inclusion of some of the buildings as well by the way. w00t!
