Redline by Height by itsago Redline by Height by itsago
This is another piece I commissioned at Big Wow! Comic Fest 2014.

:iconrayheight: was one of the first artists I watched when I joined dA six years ago, so I've been an admirer of his artistic skills, creative acumen, and arsenal of amazing original characters for some time now. As such, he's been on my commission 'want list' for some time now -- but until this year's BW!CF, the right opportunity had yet to present itself.

So when I saw Ray in Artist's Alley relatively early on Saturday, I immediately made a beeline to his table and introduced myself. Ray told me that he'd seen Redline here on dA, was a fan of the character, and was psyched to have the chance to draw her -- high praise indeed from an artist/creator of his caliber. We also traded comics: I gave him a copy of the Redline: Preview Edition in exchange for a copy of the FBCD Preview of his fantastically cool Midnight Tiger series (coming soon from Action Lab Entertainment!).

When I swung by the next day, Ray had my commission ready for pickup -- and, as you can see, he really went to town with it! Overall, he couldn't have been a cooler/nicer guy to deal with...and I hope to work with him again in the not-too-distant future. ;)

I think Ray's commission work is mostly confined his con appearances these days -- but you might also want to keep an eye on his facebook: www.facebook.com/artofraheight -- he's more active there than on dA.

Either way, good luck! I can't recommend him highly enough.
