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.

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 it may be over 150pgs. An incredibly daunting task for me, but a dream I want to make a reality.
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?

Spider Gwen by warballoon
Spider Gwen
I decided to scan my spidey gwen sketch and drop some flat color on it.

Pencil drawing with some quick digital colors added.

Hope some like it!
what's on that asteroid? by warballoon
what's on that asteroid?
just a quick and dirty fun little sketch.

Sam’s scan of the asteroid picked up an odd signature.  Time to strap on their helmets and check it out.  They don’t use drones, or droids, or bots or more thorough scanning.  They just go check it out themselves.  Not sure why -- weird humans.
Lottery Elves by warballoon
Lottery Elves
Here's a selection of elves I painted over Jeff's roughs for the Pennsylvania Lottery.  If you are in Pennsylvania and see these elves on billboards or busses or anywhere I would love to see a photo! :)
