A compilation of the illustrations I did for Inktober 2017. I decided to do something different for this year by ditching the prompts and going for doing my own spot illustrations instead. The main focus of my Inktober prompts was fantasy character designs. I used primarily watercolor for these sketches and each of them represents a different class within a tabletop RPG. I even went for all of the classes that you would find in D&D including Druids!
Happy New Years, everyone! How's about we start 2017 with some previews of a new print series I'm rolling out this Convention Season! These #Overwatch prints are in the same style as the #StevenUniverse prints that I released last season, since they sold so well in 2016!

Once again I participated in the Inktober Challenge and lasted all the way until the 26th day before I started cheating and using my comic inks for each day. This is the first week of the challenge; I was trying to get back into the swing of drawing strictly with inks.
Working on a new illustration series called the Saga of Eydis. This series is really going to play with some tropes of the fantasy genre. I don't want to reveal too much right now, but I'll drop some rough color studies here.
Short description: The Saga of Eydis would be a narrative project that follows a young archer by the name of Eydis and her journey to find medicine for her ailing grandfather. The only place that this medicine could be found at the very north of Gilea. Her rabbit ears, as well as her grandfathers are the result of an amalgamation of humans and anthropomorphic races. However, this presence of these anthropomorphic races was not considered normal centuries ago. It is said that this development was a result of a greater force. This greater force (known only as Uor’s Gate) can bend reality and change the fabric of the physical dimensions. Essentially, the omnipresent being, Uor is going to allow for the traditional fantasy genre to be flipped upside down.
With the convention season over, there are only a few shows that I've considering tabling at before the end of this year, but for the most part, I think that six convention over the summer was a good number for me. Also, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of great artists from throughout the tristate area! Hopefully, I'll get the opportunity to meet more before the year ends and into next year! I'll leave a few pictures o exclusives that were available at these conventions!
The demo for the interactive game, Salvage is online NOW! Take control of Tarra through a series of decisions that she must make to advance the story.
Coming from a small village inhabited by humans, Tarra is one of five scavengers who traverse the deserts, caves, tundra and waters of Gea! In this post-apocalyptic world, Tarra must drive, talk, shoot and explore to improve and rebuild her city. I'll put a link in this blog and a link to it on my deviantART (WARNING: Salvage runs on Flash!)
Eternal Con was another great convention! I easily made the table back and then some! And I was able to sell all of my exclusive artwork! While a few of the drawings I wanted to sell are still around, I'm just happy that I made a decent profit and sold all of the work that I wanted to sell. Here's a gallery of exclusives that were sold there along with some other pictures! My next convention it's going to be until the end of July so I'll keep everyone posted!
Man, Wizard World Philadelphia was an AMAZING experience! The people there were really friendly and there was a good amount of traffic throughout the convention! Also, there were commissions happening all throughout the convention's run time and its safe to say that I made a healthy amount of money back from the convention! I'm definitely going to sign up for Wizard World Philadelphia next year!
Here's a few commissions and exclusives that went for sale at Wizard World!
Salvage is an animation that has simple buttons and instances that can have an effect on the story throughout. Here are some motion samples along with some test animations along with some backgrounds and production art.

I'm going to make this a habit for the month of February to share at least one snippet of Black History a day, I'm behind so I'm going to have to double up for a few days:
#Blackhistorymonth: Today is Dwayne McDuffie. Dwayne McDuffie was one of the founders of Milestone comics in the mid-1990s and was the co-creator of now-DC Comic's Static Shock along with other characters such as Xombi, Icon and Hardware. Milestone Comics was an independently-owned black comic that would eventually merge with DC Comics in the early 2000s. McDuffie's flagship character Static Shock would be one of the most enduring characters, with a relatable personality and real life conflicts combined with superhero scenarios.
Work such as Rebirth of Cool would make Virgil Hawkins a well-fleshed out character with human emotions. Thus, Static Shock would launch as a successful television television series, which toned down some of the human elements but still touched on real life elements from time to time. Dwayne McDuffie passed away in 2011 from a sudden heart attack, but his work in the comic book industry would help propel African Americans into the comic book industry.
