“And why the hell not? The Nagelring Academy is one of the best colleges of the Inner Sphere, it's the an invitation to a command in any number of premier units of the Commonwealth.”
“You already in a premier unit!”
Alice was ready to bark back but stop short which also made Eric take pause. Alice wasn't the type to back away from a fight. She reached up and straighten the collar on Eric's uniform.
“Your such a child, Eric. You still can't even where your damn dress uniform.”

Haven't been happy with my artwork lately (nothing new, I know) Work has been leaving me a burnt out but I do have a few ideas I want to share and more importantly, I need to get back to commissions.

I have one series of commission I have worked on for a friend but they are not to be posted until my friend/client is ready to use them. I have two other inquiries regarding commissioned work but both parties may drop the request for various reasons.

Other news, Battletech fans can rejoice  Shattered Fortress is now available in electronic format as well as two new novels. Shattered Fortress allot of artwork from artist in the DA community including :iconbishopsteiner: first official piece of BT art. It's always great to see a artist go from fan work to official artist, congrats Bishop! :)

Bishop Steiner has joined the ranks of;
:iconkatwylder: who designed the maps for the new box sets
:iconspooky777: digital artist for the Combat Manuals and the cover for Wolf Pack
:iconlky13: mech designer who's work is featured in multiple TRO
:iconbrotherostavia: cover artist for Fire for Effect, TRO: 3145 FWL and others
:iconflyingdebris: cover artist a concept artist for MWO
:iconshimmering-sword: cover artist and BT Art Director! 

Just post art online with other fans than BAM! On to greatness! What I love about this part of the community (the rest of it is really starting to irk me but I love the game) Keep up the great work!

Inktober- Day 2 Traquail Violence
Haven't sketched a samurai in quit some time. Think my earliest post on DA was cleaned up work from my college days. Though it was past due to draw another swordsman.

I owe thanks to Marcus Ranum aka :iconmjranum-stock: for providing the stock image that allowed me to get the pose right

Inktober, Day 1: 'I need a vacation'
Work is sucking the life out of me but Inktober is upon us and I need to start drawing again.

Not following the official 2018 Prompts, instead I'll be revisiting some of my older work.

Some of you may recognize this image as a recurring theme I return to once in awhile.

A DOOM inspired sketch for my bud, Johnny Skull. I haven’t study the armor or enemies in the game yet, need to free up some memory to play the game but I just needed to upload this.
