Hey everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted anything. I'm really bad at this kind of thing. I am going to try to make more of an effort in the new year to post more work and be generally more active within the community at large. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are off to great start in the new year!

On a side note, I recently opened a print store where you can easily order my more popular illustrations. It beats trying to get a hold of me through my inbox or email for sure.

You can find the store here: www.inprnt.com/gallery/stevend…

I hope to hear back from all of you about anything at all! 

Cheers,

- Steve

No, I couldn't go to SDCC and, yes I'm very jealous of everyone who is there. Maybe next year! :D

But, on the positive :iconudoncrew: is releasing their limited edition of the World of Warcraft Tribute at Comic Con. I was very lucky to have an illustration chosen to be displayed amongst what I'm sure is a beautiful array of art from a bunch of insanely talented artists.

I'm not sure if I can post it just yet, as it officially goes on sale in the fall, but if you're one of the fortunate souls at Comic Con picking it up, I drew a picture of Thrall in a blizzard.

I can't wait to receive my copy so I can drool all over the amazing art inside. 

Take care folks!

2013 has been an eventful year! So far, I've completed two professional freelancing jobs for some very big companies and I absolutely can't wait to be able to share them with you once I'm allowed!

This coupled with taking Graphic Design full-time has eaten up a lot of spare time.

Just thought I'd let you know where I've been for the past couple of months! :)

Cheers,

I'm going to get into the habit of sketching more so I can submit work often, but does this mean a lack in quality of my submissions? Maybe, maybe not.

I'm a big believer in that while quality is of the upmost importance when it comes to anything you do, staying consistent and working on your weak points through practice is also important.

Through a rough sketch I may be able to focus on a weak point or hash out methods of achieving a certain look more quickly. I try to sketch something at least once a day and I think from now on I'm going to share these works to give you insight into how I operate early on in the process and also to get feedback on what works and what doesn't.

What are your thoughts on this? Let me know!

- Steve

p.s - A big warm thank you for all your support, kind words, and favorites!

I've noticed with most of my submissions lately that they're not as vibrant as they appear before uploading them to Deviant Art. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

Since DA will only allow prints for non fan art related materials, if I made prints in the next couple of weeks and I personally singed and mailed them to you, would any of you be interested?

I hope everyone is having a good summer so far!
I'm trying to keep busy, but unfortunately I haven't been making good progress finding work although I've applied to nearly every company I can think of that's in my field/style.
So I'm fully open for commissions!

I know I've been awful for updates, but that's only because of how hard I've been working on being an efficient artist.

I've also been busy setting up various social media outlets to help get my name out there.

I started a blog

made me a Twitter!

and even a Facebook page

They're new so give it time to fill up with delicious content!

Take care of yourselves and keep drawing!

Steve

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to check in and say hi since it's been a while.

Because of school n' all the things that come with being a grown-up my updates won't be as plentiful in the next month, but the good news is that their quality will skyrocket with all the new things I'm learning!


Cheers!

Yes, you!

is 5000 a lot in a year? I'm not sure. well, either way...

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who is currently watching, has faved, commented, or spent any amount of time viewing my work! I appreciate all the support you've shown and just wanted to give thanks to y'all! I'll be consistently striving to produce quality work and keep my skills sharper than ever!

I think applying to different drawing gigs is in my future pipeline but can't seem to muster up the courage to send it out my portfolio for some reason. maybe I'm scared of rejection? who knows!

I have a comic/manga idea in the works, but with school I predict it won't be finished anytime soon. However, I'll be updating pics and info along the way and see  if there's any interest!

Don't be shy!

Cheers!

Yesterday began as any other day, that is, until I checked in on my DA account. At first I thought a group I watch had spammed me with art or notifications but upon closer inspection I noticed it something much more sinister!

and by sinister I mean awesome!

it seems :iconblackfeather2: suggested my Bioshock pic should be a DD and low and behold it became one and I must say it certainly made my day to see so much positive energy come my way.  Thank you so much to you, and to the many others who enjoyed it as much as I did making it. the comments and favorites were overwhelming and really made me feel like I accomplished something artistically.

I just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone and welcome those who added me to their watch. I can't wait to make more art for all of you!

Much Love,

Steve

Hey!

I hope everyone is well and enjoying their summer, despite the damn heatwaves.

To start off I want to thank everyone who has added me to their deviantwatch and to those who have shared their kind words and support. It means a lot to me and it makes all those long hours of illustrating worth it. Much love!

So this fall I'll be going back to school and as a means to help pay off tuition and afford to feed myself I will be opening myself up for commissions for whoever may be interested. I can illustrate in any style you wish and depending on the specifics of the drawings prices will differ and can be arranged privately.

If you're interested please contact me either by sending me a note through DA or at my email address stevendonegani@gmail.com

As for other projects, currently I'm working on my own comic book, but before I start displaying it online I'd like cover my ass and get the idea trademarked/copyrighted. I absolutely can't wait to share it!

Since I'm a bit a new to the whole DA thang, I'm not entirely sure how to go about taking commissions. That being said if anyone has experience either taking/requestion commissions feel free to send me a note via here or email me @ stevendonegani@gmail.com and explain the fundamentals. It would be greatly appreciated.

depending on what you're looking for we can sort out the pricing through correspondence until I get a feel for what a proper rate should be.

looking forward to making great art for you!

It's amazing how quickly time passes when deadlines are abound.

I was booked for a local art show in my hometown Ottawa and if any of you live 'round these here parts and are interested you should swing by and check it out and say hi!

I'm both excited and terrified as this will be my first show. ever. GAH!

Oh How I wish I could just draw for a living.

working retail is the least fulfilling thing a person can do.

Nevertheless I will continue to draw my heart out in hopes that everyone will find joy in my creations.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy holidays and are striving for their goals in the new year!

Hi, my name is Steve. I've been creeping DA for quite some time and thought it was about time I shared some of my work with the world. I hope whoever stumbles upon this enjoys whatever they see. criticisms are absolutely welcome.
