and one of these too but I don't really use it yet, Twitter

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. And I am developing my own fantasy graphic novel. It will be a mature rated book and from the look of things it may be over 150pgs. A daunting task, but a dream I want to make a reality.

I haven't been drawing very much since becoming a colorist and that was bothering me. So 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 artwork 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 like the separate gallery folders for viewing just one type of work.  However, I wonder if I should copy all my submissions into the "featured" folder too -- so you do not need to click on "all" to see everything?

I currently have about 30 pieces in my "featured" folder, and the rest spread across my various gallery folders.  But I feel some may be missing my other stuff if they do not click on "all".  Is that the case, or does everyone pretty much always click "all" to see everything?

Do you think it's appropriate to copy everything to 'featured", and then also have art categorized in sub folders?

What do you think?
