Hey apologies.
I have been going through some tough personal family issues, but that really doesn't have anything to do with my account deactivation.
I've been struggling with small things related to my craft and I was having a really bad night....I did something I now regret...I deactivated my account. It wasn't hacked. It was me. I regret my decision and am so Happy that DA actually gives you the option to reactivate even tho at the time it says the action cannot be undone. Whew! I have way too much history here and am so sorry I let my small slip of judgement almost throw that all away.
Everything is please don't be too concerned for me. Although, I might not be very active here. I just feel that I need to step back a bit...I have found that I really am putting too much pressure on myself and I need to relax a bit.
So, I will be here...lurking about. I'll post things when I can. I thank everyone for their continuing support. I truly appreciate it.
I'm feeling a bit silly now, but you know, we all have to deal with our issues in our own way. I didn't handle it properly. Lesson learned. All I can say is I won't do it again. I'm just really happy I could restore my account.
I hope the resource of inks will be useful and help further each colorists ability and potential career. Feel free to color as always. Just credit and post links.

As for my family issues, my Uncle was murdered in the Philippines last week. What a huge shock and it is an overwhelming event that I never expected. It's something that we will have to deal with one day at a time. It's part of the reason that I will be taking a bit of a break.

So, again, I apologise. Keep well everyone, and I will see you soon.

devgear's Profile Picture
Hi there! Haven't updated this bio since I joined, lol!
My name is James Goodwin and am a self taught inker. I've been at it since 2008.
Currently am inking cover art for Zenescope Entertainment.
My love for the craft and almost daily practice has brought me to the level that I am at now...still learning everyday.
Check out my older inks in my gallery to see how bad I was, lol ;) But, as I mentioned, a desire to better myself and practice definitely helped!
Through my growing process, I have always made hi-res inks available for colorists to practice on. If you find my inking something you wish to use for color practice, please do :D Just be sure to see my Terms of Use below. Crediting the artist involved is very important.

Wonder Woman Inks
Hey guys....Yeah...I inked a page and am working on more ;)
I have my scanner packed not sure how soon I will start scanning pages.
One step at a time.
Slowly trying to find time to ink, and Caio's beautiful lines were great inspiration.
CaioMarcus-ART made the great WW pencil art of this one.
Medium format
Shooting on film is pretty much like inking traditionally... In the end you have a physical copy in your hands that you can safely file away and pull out 10 years later.
I love going back thru my inking portfolio and seeing the raw inks finished by my hand...flaws and all. 
Having negatives saved is a similar feeling for me. I've been shooting medium format film for about 14+ years. (as a hobby, as is my inking)
Anyways...just wanted to share my sentiments on the two mediums.
Conan pin-up
Hey everyone...
I picked up the original art from Cary Nord about 16 years ago. My first piece of original comic art. It was a pin-up from Conan the Barbarian issue 326 I think.
Anyways, it met an unfortunate accident and got ripped to shreds with some other papers during a clean up. That was about 10 years ago...I just found a photo I snapped of the original page and am setting out to recreate the one of a kind original that was lost. Something personal. I don't have much time set aside for inking, but this one inspired me.
Jessie Portrait
Here is something completely different for you guys...
This year I have really been pursuing my photography more. It's something I've always done, but never very seriously.
Had a portfolio shoot yesterday with Instagram model Auriastorm.
Shot with a Canon 70D and an 85mm lens.
Art in all its forms.

On a plus note...I am working on some inks...hope they will be up soon ;)

Hi. I recently colorized Guiseppe-Cafaro's Steam using your inks of her. I put links to both your inks, you and the original artist and his pencil work. I also kept it as Fan Art. I hope you like it. Cafaro's Steam
