I'm available for illustration, digital painting and color commissions. I'm pretty open to subject matter, just ask me with a note here on dA.

In April of 2011 I finally started using my deviantART account!

I've been a working freelance artist since 1998. My daily gig is coloring comics but I'm also working on expanding my skills in illustration and digital painting–among other mediums.

Since becoming a colorist many years ago I really reduced the time I spent drawing and that was bothering me. After too long of a break from creating my own artwork I decided it was time get back into it on a more regular basis. I missed creating for myself; it brings too much joy creating something from nothing and there is just something special about putting a pencil to paper.

Besides drawing and coloring comic book styled pieces I am also getting more involved in digital painting (and I'd like to hit a real canvas more often too). I'm looking forward to expanding my skills in many mediums and continually growing as an artist.

I am also developing my own fantasy graphic novel. It will be around an R-rated book and from the look of things I may try to release it in 3 books. An incredibly daunting task for me, but a dream I want to make a reality.
Interests
The other day a Russian couple sat a few tables from me as I sketched outside at the coffee shop. I don't like to just assume they were Russian, but I kept hearing, "da" so I did assume Russian. They could have been saying anything, but the sounds and inflections of their voices were so interesting to listen to.  Even though I sometimes think they could be saying how crappy my drawings are and I become more self-conscious, I love hearing other languages and I have an odd affinity for Russian for some reason.

Working out casting my graphic novel with some very early face/head concepts.  These will continue to evolve, adapt, and possibly completely change as I go.  I won't show everything since I need to keep some of it a secret until I make the books.

Head shot concept art commission.  I love these pixie-cut, sci-fi girls so this was a really fun one to work on!  Painted this in photoshop with one brush.

Sixx Commish WIP by warballoon
Sixx Commish WIP
Worked on a head shot concept art commission late last night. Here’s a WIP.

I don’t do enough brushed style digi-painting so it’s always like starting new and so slow going.  But this was a lot of fun to create based off the writer’s description. Sci-fi girls like this are so adorable :D
