No amount of skill will protect you from the sheer luck of a chronic dumb-ass
Birthday: June 2nd
Intro: This has been my deviantart account since I first started wanting to get serious about my art when I was about 16. It wasn't until I was out of high school and into college before I really became serious about getting better at art. I moved from traditional art into digital around the year 2012 and have been digital pretty much ever since with a few meanderings back into traditional art when the mood strikes me.
2016 was the year I finally came into a style of art that really felt like me on a page. This further pushed me into exploring digital art as a way to tell a story that I'd been working on that I referred to as "The Gem World" and then finally as "Fragments." I used my art to delve into Character Studies and explored potential story lines with it.
Currently I'm working on a rewrite of the story and hope to get it written into a book before working it into a Web Comic. This page serves as a reminder of how far I've come and the journey these characters helped me take to get to where I am today. I hope you enjoy looking through it all.
About my Art: I consider my style to be a twist of typical American Style Cartoon with Anime influences. I like my line-art thick and my shadows cell shaded. I'm working on diversifying my portfolio of characters by varying face shapes and body types as well as doing a better job of including more variety in my skin tones.
About my Writing: It's been a long time since I've written seriously so I'm taking some time to get back into it and polish up my craft. My main goal is to get the story written and hopefully self publish it! Getting it picked up with a publisher or up on Kindle would be a dream goal!
About my Web Comic: Sadly I bit off a bit more than I could chew with this. It's a wonderful eventual goal but trying to attempt this before the story is even written is not a good idea to pursue at this time! That's why I'm working on my writing and getting the story written out first! There can't be a story without the story being written!
About my Art Commissions: Commissions are currently closed as I work on writing.
About Art Requests: Art Requests are for close friends only. They are closed at this time.
