Collaboration: Venom
Part of my Collaboration series whereby I pair up with various artistic friends and create new pieces. This one is another Venom piece, but the sketch work was done by the talented Jimbo02Salgado and colors, typography, and effects were done by myself.
Commission: OilSlick
"Born from a sacrificial ritual, he was never once human. The blood from the sacrifice bubbled and boiled and became a blurry shape with no bones. That shape swarmed over the body, and the sacrifice's eyes became its own. It knew nothing of the world it now lived in; all it knew was that it had to feed and that if it survived long enough it would take on the shape of its first victim. With this in mind, it picked out the strongest of its creators, one who was young and healthy, and it followed him home. While the man slept, it drained him dry through a sharp snout used for sucking blood- a gift from the ritual. Day by day it chose its victims, and day by day it grew stronger. Once 40 days had passed, its body writhed and squirmed and became the shape of the young man who served as his first meal.

He had become one of the first vampires."

Hey Folks! I've been away for awhile, but I've been trying to make a concerted effort to stop by this page to submit pieces and updates. I'll continue with that effort. ;)

I have 3 sets of series going at the moment in addition to my regular commission work and my private project work on my Sorche fantasy novel (call me a glutton for punishment :P )
My Phoenix series, Collaborators series, and the Silver Screen Legends series. You can find out more about the series pieces at the following link:…

I'm excited about the artwork I've done for my clients Wahoo Studios for their MMORTS game "SAGA" and may post a few pieces here at a later date. If you're a gamer you should check the game out at:

Deviant Artists - To those of you who have visited my page, watched me, and/or faved my pieces, I want to sincerely thank you all. I may not always have time to individually respond to your wonderful words of encouragement and/or requests, but I do read them all and I do attempt to answer them.

But if I do not, please know that you all are important and that I do enjoy reading your input and thoughts. And I thank you all for taking the time to view my works. Thank you, DA.     

If you are feeling particularly kind or just want to show appreciation for my art, please feel free to donate points. :)

I own a small story and production agency. We do TV/Film/Show concepts and sometimes need freelancers for different artwork like in games and books etc. Right now we am doing a bit of research globally. I adore your fantasy artwork. I currently have a competition going on at and would LOVE to see how you could take that illustration to the NeXT level. It would also be a good way to see what the possibilities are for the future. There’s about 6 days left... if interested, take a look at:…
