Well, it's official, hit 2500 watchers today. :D I cannot thank you all enough for showing interest in my measly existence. I promised myself that once I reached that milestone I would ramp up the production, and submit a hell of a lot more art. Gonna be busy for a while.

Thank you all again so much. Here's to the next 2500! Cheers!

Dave

The overly stimulating game of popularity and never ending challenge to make badass new art is nigh, let us bask and partake in its glory. New art coming soon. A lot of it in fact. Ahh, these are the days my friends.

WTF is going on with this site? Now the ads, which were somewhat tolerable before, are asking me if I want to have a beautiful Chinese wife...Not even sure what to say to that.

Anyway, if anyone's interested in commissions, I've got some time in the next month to do some freelance. Let me know if you're interested.

Hope everyone's having a great new year! So, one of my new years resolutions, which I am sure to follow, is to answer each and every comment from now on. (for what it's worth) I've been slacking on answering for too long and apologize to everyone who has been gracious enough to leave me kind words.  I really do appreciate it more than you know. That said, thanks to all the new watchers, and to all my friends who keep me wanting to get better at this thing we call art!

Hi guys. Is it just me, or is Deviant like the equivalent to a fish in a fish bowl? If you don't feed it every fuckin day, you quickly are forgotten, and your rep is left for dead. This whole social acceptance thing is addictive. Especially for your art. I sincerely hope that everything I produce is something you take a moment of pleasure in. Happy 2013. Keep on truckin. (which nobody says anymore unfortunately)

Journal is light, must refill. Biggest thanks for comments, llamas, favorites and watchers. It's amazing to me how much you guys mean in my day to day. Seriously. I can't even begin to tell you how much of a difference this new machine, and my own personal approach have helped me to get to where I'm at, which I'll admit is pretty low on the totem pole, but still close enough to get into some friendly personal battles with some of my favorite artists in the biz.  I'll be posting intermittently over the next three months, but I'm hoping that those who appreciate it will keep coming back for more. Thanks again guys. Love you.

Hello my fellow Deviants,
So, today I went out and bought myself this machine (computer) that probably would have been better off piloting the now defunct space shuttle. Holy shit in a handbasket. I never realized how dirty and unkempt a lot of my images are thanks to my ancient monitor (8 years old). I am kicking myself as we speak for not investing in something else a lot sooner. Coincidentally, my wife has noticed me doing the kicking and has decided to join in on the fun.
Anyway, thanks to all you guys for the watches, comments, honest critiques and downright friendliness you've extended to me over the past two years, and from now on, I promise that my work will remain just as dirty on the inside, but certainly not on the outside.

Hope you're all having a great year so far.

Dave

Paul-Motherfuckingistheman-Richards. First things first, how in the FUCK did I not know about this god of industry in the concept art world? I have obviously been talking to the wrong people. Rant complete. If you haven't heard of or seen work from Mr. Richards, do yourself a favor, set aside a good twelve hours in your schedule and see what turning it out is really all about. Nuff said.

On a personal note, for those interested in my puny existence, I'm not dead, I've just got a lot of shit going on that I'm not allowed to show at the time. One of these days soon, your deviations box will be bombarded with all kinds of schwag that I've been compiling and continue to compile. Some of it is good, some bad, and it's all ugly. Anyway, I miss you guys, and I'll be back posting some serious work in the very near future. Remember what I said about dreaming and drawing? Well, in this case, I've been having one of those really long dreams where my hand hurts and there's nothing but ink and blood on the floor. Catch you later.

Dave

PS. If you've given me a watch or comment, I really, more than you realize appreciate it. One day, I'll let you know personally. Thanks again friends

When I'm drawing, soul wins over science.

But science, is a close second.

When I'm drawing, I'm dreaming.

Ever feel that way?

If not, you need to rethink your art career.

I'll officially log this as "Silly Journal Entry #1".

But I swear, it's the truth.

No comment necessary, just wanted to share. :D

OK, so now I've got 10,000 views. Have to admit, there's no way to keep up with the faves and watches(this is my formal apology for not responding to those that did fave or watch). In the mean time, I really do appreciate those that have taken the time to do so and will do my best to keep up the caliber of work I have so diligently worked towards. Thank you all again, and keep an eye out for better things to come in the future.

Dave

P.S. Commissions still open. Whatever you want. If you need a price list, send me a note. It's not as pricey as you may think. ;)

10,000 views approaches, whatever the fuck that means. Turns out at least 25% of my views are myself looking to see how many views I've got. If that isn't some sort of paradox, I don't know what is. Thanks a lot guys for delving into my craziness and enjoying the party! Gonna get into that concepting biz one way or another. Probably going to be one way, hard work, rather than the other. I tip my wine glass to those of you that care. Oops, spilled some!
BTW, listening to jungletrain.net right now, and if your into zoning out on some serious vibrastic, creative background music, check it out.
Later,
more artwork coming.

Hello again friends.
Seeing as how it's slow out there right now, (unless somebody know's something I don't), I'm considering opening up the floor for commissions.
I figured I'd get some feedback from the community and see what you guys think. Just throwing it out there. Thanks in advance!

So, been on DA for a little over a year now and I'm having a pretty great time seeing all the newest, greatest artwork and making new friends. I really appreciate all the watches and faves you guys have been generous enough to give and I'll do my best to make sure my deviations are worth looking at. It amazes me sometimes the type of stuff that gets the most attention on this site, and I am definitely not here for a popularity contest, but yikes. What people find to be good work makes me question taste in our society today.

Anyway, that's it, nothing fancy. Just wanted to say thanks. :)

Well, I'm back. Not that I really went anywhere, but I've definitely got the mojo back and I'm ready to play once more.  Thanks to everyone for the comments and support and I can assure you that the break was worth it.  So, to kick things off, I've got a few new things going into the gallery that you might enjoy.

Hi guys, hope the new year's going well for all.  I really appreciate the feedback, compliments, watches and support you guys have been giving me for the past 9 or 10 months.  Every comment left and positive reinforcement has made me that much better of an artist and I have nothing but love for all.  Just wanted to let you know that I'll be taking a hiatus for a while to get my shit together as far as my work is concerned.  Recently I've found that my skills have been suffering (in my own opinion) as a result of my own ambition and I've been beating myself up to be as good as the best out there. I've always found that the best things I've done were when I wasn't so focused on how many views I was getting, and how popular I was (and in this case am not) in this anonymous cyberspace universe.  Thanks again for all the respect you guys have given me and I'll see you soon, with a much better outlook, and hopefully, a much better portfolio.

Thanks again guys........TaTa for now.

So I'm wondering, does anyone actually read this thing?  

Well if you do, thanks, and if you don't, then you probably have better things to do.
Anyway, for those interested, I'm so freaking addicted to drawing right now, really hooked which means that I work two to three times as fast.  So if you like what you've seen so far, it's only go up from here.  Thanks to everyone for the watches and favorites.  Really appreciated. :D

Dave

PS: Still looking for a job doing this for a living....Tough times my friends, tough times indeed.  Stay happy, and stay drawing.

Recently got into a great new site for the creature lovers out there called the Creature Spot.  Some of the best creature artists out there today are showing there stuff exclusively on this new bad ass site.  You should go check it out.  That's it for now.

Hope to see you there!

Hi there, thanks for the generous welcome to the DeviantArt community.  I wish I had some good news to put here, but things aren't really any different or even that exciting since I last had a job as a freelance illustrator.  Anyway, I consider this to be my awakening into the life and experience that I've only dreamed of when it comes to my art.  I could be a little too optimistic but who cares? I thank you all for stopping by and I will do my best to stay in touch and keep the improvements in my own level of work coming as often as possible.
