I'm in the middle of texturing this beast. I have the obvious parts left and then I need to normal map it, specular map it, and then stage it for the final which involves modeling lots of leaves. This is my first real texture ever. I did that lego guy, but that was super basic.

Anime Banzai

So I still have a few commissions from that con left to do and most are done, but I need the info from people who ordered stuff. I have a list of the things I was to draw. If you had one then let me know so I can send it to you. Otherwise you all paid me to draw stuff for myself.

Chibis to raise money so i can get home.

So My dad runs a haunted house each year. He nearly kills himself to get it all up and this year both his sons are gone. Mike is in Washington and i am stuck here due to funds and whatnot. SO i am doing Chibi commissions to raise the money. They are $15 for the line drawing and $25 for a full color! I need in the range of 8- 12 commissions to make it back out to GA. I want to get out there by the 15th which would mean i could make the All Hallows Solar event as well!

Thanks for hearing me out. Here are some samples.

the ship in the sea

I reserve this space mostly for art. and I have tried to keep it that way. There are times when it cant be. Everyone in life walks a path. That path is dictated by the choices we have made and sometimes we look back. we all do it. We say, "If I could do it again I would have...." but we never really get the chance. When we look back sometimes we are filled with horrible regret or sorrow for what might have been. The opportunities lost. In the end the path that has brought us here really only matters if we learned from what it taught us. Right now we can make changes to follow the path we want. I have walked a long road of emotions. If you look at it it has been a bit rocky to say the least. What gets me by is that I know those bumps in the road were for my good. I thank god for those hard times because they taught me things and made me better.

I stood on top of a mountain this summer. One with no trail to its peek. I stared across the vista and I came to a bold recognition as to how small I am, how vast the world is, and how big God must be to manage it. God has my life planned without even trying hard. To him its a piece of cake and while it seems so rough sometimes to me and so hard, my viewpoint is that of someone in the valley below the mountain who only sees a small portion of the world.

I will enjoy tomorrow whatever it brings. My God steers the ship, and i know he will bring us home safely.

I have been taking Sam Nielson's digital painting class. If you haven't seen his work hit this link.
SO I took the class because I wanted to be a better painter, and at the end of week 2 in this class I am much better. Here is part of a painting i am doing for my cousin. it was supposed to be done last week but when you are getting better daily in such extreme ways its hard to not go and correct issues. So he will have to wait this one out. maybe I will have it done by the first of next week.

Current commission work schedule:

Character designs followed by the story boards for act 1 of the tv pilot.
Tattoo design/ painting for Brian
Children's book cover for author Ryan Wall
Meet with Racheal and Jordan about cd cover and merch project.

some thing that i think about

My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him, all good things - trout as well as eternal salvation - come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy. -Norman Maclean

Lots of working on lots of things means...

logos lately:

I never blog,
I'm always running about,
I have random fevers at inconvenient times,
I miss the Thrice and Kevin Davine show,
I need so rest.

lets talk about the places and see if this makes sense

I have been out backpacking and camping around utah for 4-5ish weeks. I just returned a week ago to be bombarded with papers that I still have not completed. My recently becoming addicted to the tv show How I met your mother has not helped me along.
