Sorry, I obviously kinda fell off the map at some point.  Again.  I have some backlog of finished art to catch up on posting and will hopefully have that all up soon. It's not everything I've worked on recently (part of the reason I went MIA was because of freelance/temp work), but it should be a good selection of stuff.  The combo of freelance work and events has hit a slow spot so I finally have a chance to update stuff.

If you're interested in hanging out and chatting, I'm likely going to be doing art streams most days from about noon-6pm PST over at my Twitch stream.  I have a fair amount of traditional art planned first, but later on it should be digital stuff too.  The exact times will be refined as I go on as well, but it should be that schedule for most of the week (with bonus gaming-related streams in the evenings).  Would love to see you guys drop by!  I'm not going to spam DA every time I stream so if you want to show up your best bet is to follow me on Twitch for the notifications there.

I'm also opening up commissions (as well as selling some prints/merch) on Commiss.io! Not everything I want to offer is listed there yet. Keep an eye out!  Will likely have conbadge-type things up there soonish too, mostly 'cause I enjoy doing them.

I think that's about it for now!  I ended up clearing my notifications on here (there was a LOT of stuff, eek), so if I missed something of yours that was super awesome, just send me a link and I'll take a look!

Find me on...

Hi folks! It's time for my once-in-a-blue-moon journal post!  Just wanted to let everyone know I'm now going through and doing a fair number of art streams over the next couple of weeks and will hopefully continue doing so afterwards!  Hope to see you guys there, as it's always fun to talk to people while I work!

Art/Gaming Streams

Twitch Stream 

Primary/Art Twitter | Gaming/Streaming Twitter 


Since Twitch now allows non-gaming-related art streams, I will be streaming art on Twitch!  If you want to get notifications for only art streams, you can probably just follow my Primary/Art Twitter account -- but I retweet the notifications to it manually, so I might occasionally miss some. However, if you want to get art AND gaming stream notifications, plus my occasional random jabbering about games, follow my gaming/streaming Twitter!

Other Galleries

Professional Portfolio & Blog | ArtStation 


Basically my super professional stuff, obviously. I'm bad at updating the blog on my main site too, but going to try to get back in the habit! Should have more stuff about concepts/progress when I do write it.  My ArtStation account is new and has nothing on it right now, pretty much, but if you use it, here it is.  Hopefully will have more in the future.

Art Tumblr | Random Stuff Tumblr | Weasyl


Pick a Tumblr, any tumblr! A lot of crossposting but quite a bit of sketch-type stuff posted there when it might not be found elsewhere. If you happen to have Weasyl, you can also amble on over to that corner of the internet and watch me there too and find basically the same art as here uploaded there, with a few exceptions where I forgot one or the other. Super exciting, no?

I went through and nuked all my notifications on here tonight because they'd pretty much been rotting for.. Uh.  A while, let's say, haha.  It was one of those instances where just stuff gets out of control because you don't check for a few weeks and it just snowballs and then suddenly it's been a few months and oh boy, what a backlog!  I gave up. :P  Normally I'd go and pick through them but it was way too many this time.

Anyway, hello again, great internets!  I am not dead!  Got a few things to upload in the not-too-distant future, but if you're interested in finding me elsewhere in the meantime...

My Portfolio & Blog - Basically my super professional stuff, obviously.  I'm bad at updating the blog there too, but going to try to get back in the habit!  Should have more stuff about concepts/progress when I do write it.
Art Tumblr & Random Stuff Tumblr - Pick a Tumblr, any tumblr!  A lot of crossposting but quite a bit of sketch-type stuff posted there when it might not be found elsewhere.
Twitter - Basically just video game stream announcements, but might be art streams too in the not-too-distant future.  Just gotta figure out what site to use.  If you happen to like competitive Natural Selection 2, I stream that. :D  I kind of want to use my Twitter more but heck if I know what for.
My Weasyl Account - If you happen to have an account there, you can also amble on over to that corner of the internet and watch me there too and find basically the same art as here uploaded there, with a few exceptions where I forgot one or the other.  Super exciting, no?

Did I forget somewhere?  Who knows!  Those are probably my most active/important places though.

First off I wanted to say thanks for all the watches, favs, and comments that were left across all my pieces and my gallery.  Over the next week I'll see about taking a peek at what all of you do in your own galleries, respond to comments, etc. :D  Gonna take a while though, I have like... 1871 things under the comment/fav/etc section.  And 590 pieces of art to look at besides that, yikes.

I hadn't been expecting to get a DD at all. XD  I'm just glad it was on my latest piece and not something really old. :P
For those who like studying the numbers (like me), I got... 981 pageviews, 165 watchers -- pretty much doubling my total number of watchers. O.o  And the piece itself got over 10,000 views and got just under 1,000 favs.  And I'm still getting views.  It's freakin' amazing, haha.   Totally not used to that.

Anyway.  As I've said, will get back to you guys on all the comments and stuff over the next little while! :D

A little about me, for those new peeps...  I'm currently going to Art Center College of Design, but will be graduating next week.  I've been studying illustration, specifically the stuff related to feature animated film development if that makes sense.  It'll be a grand adventure after graduation, I'm sure.  I have no idea what I'm doing, huzzah!

I do like and appreciate critiques, tips, and similar.   Real ones, not just like "omg it is terrible, you fail" or whatever, but like "you should consider increasing the contrast of X because it blends into Y and makes the image hard to read."  I will also quite happily return the favor for any of your own pieces.  After all, improvement is awesome! :D

Otherwise, don't be afraid to say hi.  I think I'm pretty nice. Most of the time. :P


Updated Pieces
I'm going through and refining some of my pieces for my grad wall.  Here's the current changed ones -- some may be more subtle changes than others, but I'll bump this post when I get them all done.

Zikkihuru : Lava by OnyxSerpent   Zikkihuru : The Fog by OnyxSerpent   Zikkihuru : Village by OnyxSerpent



Still to be Updated Pieces
Want to help?  Leave crits on these!  As I finish them, I'll move them up to the updated category.

The Turaco Rider by OnyxSerpent   At the Aquarium by OnyxSerpent   The Toy by OnyxSerpent   Zikkihuru : Friends by OnyxSerpent

So set up a gallery on Nabyn ( www.nabyn.com/ )... It does have some nice features that DA and/or FA don't have.  And it's small.  I kind of like those facts, heh.

I have an invite and will likely end up with more, so anyone interested in getting one?  They request that people be 15 or over, and have a preference for people who have at least a certain level of skill (not like, woahcrazy, but not MSPaint scribbles), and not photography.

So far the people I've talked to in their shoutbox are all pretty cool.

If you're on there already, feel free to add me: onyxserpent.nabyn.com/

If  not, as I've said, I have an invite, and will likely end up with more eventually. XD  So let me know and I'll see about possibly getting ya set up.


Also, LAST SEMESTER OF SCHOOL, OMG.
