Guys, I've been bussssssy.

I'm very happy that I've been busy, and that so far working indie has been functional. I think I can keep doing it! I'm gonna try doing it for the rest of the year, but I might eat my words if some crazy opportunity pops up outta no where. Ya right. I'm very excited to show off the things I've been working on, but I probably won't be for a while. I can't even reveal what the projects I've been on.

But, completely unrelated, have you seen the new Spyro Reignited trailer?:D:D:D;);)



HOWEVER, I am a little sad that I have so little time for my own work, and to keep in touch with all the social media that I plug myself on. of all the places I publish, DeviantArt still feels like my home away from home even if it feels like I'm spending more attention to my Instagram and Tumblr. This is the place where I actually talk with my watchers, and that kind of support and feedback is invaluable to me.

Part of my indie artist initiative is to open a store, FINALLY. I don't think i will do it through DA because I'm not happy with the print quality, but it may be the easiest option. If you have print suggestions, throw them at me! So now I would like to ask, and I'm actually serious this time-- What pieces of my art would you like to see as a print on your wall? This the hardest thing I've struggled with, is A) making artwork that is worthy to hang on a wall and B) not understanding my fanbase as far as what they want. So please-- Feedback! Maybe a poll later...

That's right! I'm solo now.

After my time at Motiga games I've decided to go full time freelance for a bit. We'll see how long, I'm just a little exhausted from studio life and want to try new projects. I'll still be posting GIGANTIC art of course, and maybe even some fanart if I work myself up to do it. In the mean time I'm still going to be super busy, but I will continue to grow my DA gallery and content. By the way, if anyone wanted me to do a specific tutorial on a thing, now might be the time... Can you make those out of journal entries? That would be hot. If not, a DA post.

sharing my posts from instagram, tumblr, facebook or whatever other media I've distributed to would be greatly appreciated. If you've been following my work for the past 5, 10, 15+ years on DA thank you so much for your support, comments, favs, all that good stuff that makes my day better! And if you just started following me or slapped me a fav-- thanks for dropping by! I try to always respond to journal comments.

I've been... away. Not as long as you might think, three weeks in Europe. It was the first time trying to plan a trip where I would be traveling by myself, starting with a dance festival in Amsterdam and ending with my sister's wedding in Albania. It was pretty crazy, the commute was insane, I lost my phone, and it ended up being a soul searching experience. Traveling by myself made my strengths and weaknesses much more apparent. I got some thinkin' to do.

In the meantime, Gigantic launched. I even worked with DeviantArt on this article about GIGANTIC's art direction which you can read here (interpreted from a phone interview): Fan Art Feature: GiganticGigantic Fan Art Feature

In a world of long-established multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games, one little game is casting a very large shadow. Gigantic looks like no other MOBA out there.

It was amazing to see all the gigantic fanart, a lot of which I hadn't seen before! Thank you folks, it means a lot to developers to see that stuff.

Expect more art to dump from the game soon.

Hey gang! Sorry I've been out of touch on DA, but I will still post art here as it comes out!

GIGANTIC is currently in open beta for Windows 10 and Xbox 1, working towards release on Windows 7 and 8 soon. I'm glad we've been given enough runway to get this project off the ground and get it out the door. Since we are constantly releasing content in open beta I'll be able to post my concept work here as it rolls out in game patches. We are missing some key features (chat, arranged games, rank) and still has some bugs but the game is entirely operational and in full effect. Go check it out at the Windows Store! find me as MX Gorrem

Check out my other art outlets too for more regular updates:

Very similar to be DA content but sometimes I include process notes and sketches:

Aaaand we're back. We got money-saved from PW, and will now be available on Win7, 8 and 10 along with Xbox Live. I guess I can keep making a game now!

Hey guys... Been a while.

I've been working at Motiga for quite some time now, about 2 and a half years. The last few months have been... pretty turbulent. While a lot of cool things happened like going to India (it was amazing), it has been pretty crazy at work.

I'll make another update when I can provide good answers for the state of Motiga and GIGANTIC. In the mean time I am still working there and making characters, which I can show more of soon! Stay tuned.

Doing this #inktober thing! Drawing in ink for a month. For more info visit Jake Parker's site:

It seems like a better environment to post these on Instagram since they are casual sketches, so please follow me there for those. I may post a collection or something like that here or on my tumblr when it's done. Check it out here!

Going to PAX East? I'll be workin' at booth 5092 coaching and talking about @GoGigantic! I'll doodle Gigantic stuff on request for you.

Oh Lord I sort of got a smart phone so now I'm on this shit. Gorrem!

Going to CTN this year for the first time. I won't have a booth or nothin' fancy, but I'll be roaming around. Look for my orange beanie, it's meeeeeeeeee!
I collaborated on an ImagineFX cover with Vinod Rams for a highlight on Gigantic's characters! Mostly I just painted the red guy in the foreground, Tyto. He painted Voden and Knossos in the background and then we brought them together. Educational experience! Vinod also did a character design article inside for one of our other characters, Imani. Check it oooouuuut, it's pretty cooooooooooooool

Holy crap, more like.

I am completely exhausted from PAX Prime, but it was totally awesome. GIGANTIC had pretty great reception, which was really cool to see. Our qeue got more and more full every day, we even had repeat teams of 5 coming to play together! I had a lot of fun coaching, but I was essentially yelling for several hours a day. Between that and all the gross nerd-juice flying around, I'm just gonna pray I don't get sick.

I also met a lot of cool people, new and old! It was also very humbling to meet fans of my work in the wild, I'm always surprised by it, so thanks guys!

I also did a panel on character art! As usual I'm a lil nervous on stage but I think I pulled through. Check it out on twitch:

www.twitch.tv/gogigantic/b/563…



I'm gonna go die on a bed now. Good NIGHT.
If you're attending PAX Prime, you should totally find me! I'll be hanging out at the Gigantic booth probably, and you'll definitely find me at the Panel I'll be a part of Friday about the art of Gigantic.

Here are some shameless plug links:

Sooo ya, come find me, play the game, see the new stuff, throw peanuts at me, whatever fickles your tancy.
Aw yesssh, our game has been announced folks! I'm super excited to be working on this project with a great team. Please check it out and share! We're still indy so we need all the spread we can get.

I did a podcast with :iconavikishundat:! Please excuse my muffling microphone, my audio equipment is terrible... -_-

artakupodcast.blogspot.ca/2014…

We talked about a bunch of stuff, from dinosaurs, concept art, design, movies, my thought process on art in general. If you're interested in what life is like as a concept artist, then stay a while and listen. Fun interview! Thanks for the opportunity Avi.

I also contributed to this review on the new Adobe Ink & Slide. You can read the article about it, but  my general opinion is that for a professional illustrator it's a bit of a novelty. Seems more like a gimmick geared towards industrial designers and architects who still like to draw.

Also I've made a bit of headway into the Tumblr experience. You guys were right, it's not as terrible as I thought it would be! The only difference is I can't always look at the tumblrs of people watching me... There is some weird shit out there. The environment of Tumblr is similar to DeviantArt, but also you can post anything. ANYthing. Either way it's been fun to watch the feed of tumblrs I follow, although I wish people communicated a little more on it. The Tumblrs I like the most are ones where they match my tastes and just post everything I like, that's pretty cool. Also, tons of artists.Woot. If you're following me on Tumblr already, thanks a lot for any favorites or reblogs!
