Hey, by the way:

Me and Ashley will be tabling at SPX this year! I’ll post more details and probably a photo of what I’m selling closer to the date of the con! It’ll probably be a humble setup from me since I haven’t tabled for quite a long time - mostly prints, minis, etc. - won’t be taking on any commissions.

I am super nervous. No joke. Ahaha. Exhibiting is kind of stressful for me at least for the first day, so if you approach me and I seem awkward, it’s just nerves. I’m actually not really ready to appear in such a large public setting at this time, but it’s happening so HERE WE GOOOOO~

With that said, since I’m producing a lot of stuff right now, you can probably look forward to a bunch new art posts after the middle of September. : D

  1. chasertech reblogged this from chainsmoke-art and added:
    Still can’t believe how well you work with traditional artwork. lol how much paper do you go through daily?

Haha! Not as much as you’d think if you’re talking about starting drawings over, but for accumulated drawings/sketchbooks filled in a year it really stacks up to an absurd amount. If trees were a sentient race, they’d be plotting my slow and torturous murder for the gruesome graphite & marker based slaughter of their people.

Necro from Street Fighter: Third Strike! I don’t recall ever uploading these. Hopefully they aren’t a repeat. (Trying so hard to remember. haha If it IS a repeat, sorry about that!)

I love fighting games so much but I don’t think I’ll ever become great at playing them. :B

    Great seeing more work from you. Man, I really missed your stuff. D:

Thanks a lot, dude. I’ve been super neglectful of the internet and need to fix that. »

WAIT. HOW ABOUT MORE SORCERY! Lezard Valeth from Valkyrie Profile!
Mostly posting it as a reminder that I’ve been wanting to finish this one for a while, and will have to do so when I have time.
Hoping to have time soon to post more [finished] stuff, but I’ve been so busy. Sorry for the long lull between postings!

So, I’m not really a superhero fan, but for some reason Dr. Strange kills me. He’s so ridiculous and I can’t help but get a kick out of a dude who runs around doing MYSTIC THINGS and yelling. Also, yeah I gave him boots.

Ah, what the hell? More oldies! Pencil sketches this time.

The drawing of Mercury getting hit by the rock is an outdated design for him, but I still kinda like the drawing.
