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
In 2010 I decided I really need to create my own stories and work toward publishing my own graphic novels.  Written, drawn, colored, lettered, packaged, on my own.  I'm scared shitless.  I have terrible self-doubt and rampant anxiety, but I am not letting that stop me.  I began typing up the actual script in September of 2014 and work and revise as I can.  The first chapter of my first book is coming together; 46 pages of my first legit script; my first legit story.  I'm not sure how many books this story is going to take but I am planning on releasing book 1 with 3 chapters (around 120 pages).

I have a very long road ahead.  I don't think I'll ever really feel ready, but I'm pushing forward.  On to the next chapter!

I felt I had to get a quick face study in after work.  Fashion model, Taylor Marie Hill was the reference.  Though it looks more like a cross between her and Natalie Portman, haha!

here's the scan of my red pencil sketch of Gemma.

I uploaded the photo of this yesterday and said, "I guess Gemma Ward was my Valentine today ;) (Wink)  I was urged to try another Gemma sketch today by Matthew Gaulke, check out his dA--> mattgaulke.deviantart.com and while I wasn't feeling up for it, I decided to give it a shot.  Hope some of you guys and gals like it!"
