Half computer scientist, half compulsive doodler. No one told me I had to choose between an artistic or a technical background, so I didn't.

I'm primarily self-taught; the art classes I did take were opportunities to do drawing as homework (though I also drew on my homework). Maybe this is plainly visible from my work, seeing as I don't know all the techniques the pros do. But I push myself onward to learn!

I'd also like people to know that it's not always about talent. With passion, practice, and patience, anyone can learn to draw well!
  • Listening to: Epic Sax Guy
  • Reading: Maps and walkthroughs (Guide dang it)
  • Playing: Final Fantasy VI
I realize I've been neglecting my duties here, for reasons varying in their level of soundness. On the upside, in my absence I have produced lots of new work and acquired techniques to produce drawings faster to keep up with my spontaneous inspiration.

Long story short, my recent months have been laden with ups and downs. Ups being going to Vancouver for SIGGRAPH 2011 and game nights, downs being things I will avoid mentioning in such a public space as a Journal entry. You came here to read comics, look at adorable Zerg critters, and things bristling with menacing awesome, not to read written whinging.

So in other news, I announce the status of the various things I will be submitting in the near future:

Starcraft Minis: Protoss
They just need to be colored! All I need to do is not get distracted by the multitudes of other things I want to draw...

Kaiju Minis: Round 3
In the planning stages. They fit a theme this time around, but until it comes out you'll only be able to guess what it is ;)

Red, Black, and Blue: Zombies
Will Zero ever get out of the Aracanides'Arcanum? Is Draguunthor going to become zombie food? When will Lazarus turn into a zombie? All these and more questions will be answered as the storyline progresses...obviously.

Moar giant monsters
The Kaiju Minis have inspired a rash of monstrous creations, and a new species has arisen in the Etherium to encompass them--the Zechcurossa. The smallest of these Daemons can match the size of the largest Nephilim!

ArtRage-colored drawings
I recently acquired Artrage Starter Edition and used it to color some of my drawings. The fact that it simulates various mediums (markers, pencils, paint...) and their interactions with each other (!) has made for some pretty sweet results that come out faster than if I were to color them in Photoshop. Of course, Photoshop still has many very useful features so ArtRage won't replace it. I may feel the need to acquire the Studio or Pro Edition at some point!
