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.

Here is the scan of this quick experimental sketch.  I kept the photo of this in my gallery too --> fav.me/d8pjdui

"I just attempted a quick photo ref'd drawing with minimal to no proportion or layout sketching.  Something I've never really done before. The model had a tank top on in the photo, but I'm trying to be just so damn artistic tonight, therefore, breasts."

So I have a thing for ballerinas...  But anyway, I think I like the Harley Quinn sketch at this stage more than the one with the flat color tones and darkened lines -- seen here --> fav.me/d8orcra
