Wanted to say thanks to all of my watchers for the recent 30,000 pageview milestone. I've really enjoyed being a part of DA for the past 6 years. Here's to many more!
New.It's been a year since I took everything down and left the DeviantArt community. I've gone through many changes since, both artistically and personally. Two big examples are the birth of our fourth child and the opening of my new studio/transition to gallery work and departure (not entirely) from illustration. I decided that given all these changes, there was no harm in posting my new work to the site.
So, I'm back.
All things must end.It's come time to leave deviantart as an artist. I will keep my account so that I may browse others' art, but will no longer be submitting my own. There are too many other ways to showcase it that don't involve so much nonsense, and most importantly, awful terms of service.
It's been real.
More FOOTPRINTS!Hi everyone! I know I don't write journals here often, but I wanted to ask for your help. About 3 years ago My friend/collaborator Joey Esposito and I kickstarter our comic Footprints. It was released to much acclaim and attention, all the way up to a feature in USAToday. We've teamed up again for a one-shot follow up, and need money for printing and design. We have some great rewards such as signed copies of the comic, digital downloads of the previous volume and script pages, a T-shirt, prints, original art from me (both sketches and original pages from Volume 1) and the chance to appear on Joey's podcast "Assemble After Dark" and even the chance to be drawn into the book.
We'd love your help, either by pledging or sharing this on Deviantart and/or other social media! Thanks!

What do we say to the god of death?I'm typing this journal from my hospital bed. Late Friday night I went to our nearby hospital and it was determined I had a heart attack. I was airlifted downtown and taken to the cath lab, where they discovered a 99% blockage of my LAD. If you're not up on cardiologic parlance, that's bad, bad news. I feel safe saying that very many folks with such a severely occluded LAD die. It's the primary coronary artery supplying the left ventricle, which pumps oxygenated blood throughout your body.
I have a stent in place now and I feel normal. I'm an unusual sight on this floor: a 30-year-old strolling around easily. More than one staff member has commented that they can't believe I'm a patient. Lots of changes to come. It's even quite possible that I'll be completely normal again.
Working!Sorry I haven't had a lot of art to post lately. Everything I'm doing is under NDA. As soon as I can either show what I'm doing (probably several months) or work on something else, I'll post it up for you guys!
If you watch me, please take 2 seconds to help?Just a click for the link and (one on the "are you sure you want to leave?" deviantart warning), and then a click on 5 stars for my Glamdring painting in the Hobbit contest.
It looks like competitors are sandbagging me. I've really sunk hard in the ratings. PLEASE take 2 seconds and help a guy out! This is the last day of the contest before finals.
Hobbit Design Contest - PLEASE HELP!Hey fellow deviants,
My entry for the official Hobbit Design contest is live! Please go over there and rate me 5 stars, and if you feel so inclined, please share this link wherever/however (here, fb, twitter, etc)! Thanks so much!
Busy busy busySorry I haven't had much work to post.
Right now I'm working on several projects that I can't reveal for a while. Late this month I'll have a painting I can show off though.
Thanks to everyone out there still watching!
20,000 (now over 21k) viewsI'm a little late on this, but that's because I had one day of crazy activity and the 20,000 pageview milestone blew by very quickly!
So here's to all my watchers and visitors. Hard to believe I've been a member of dA this long, but I'll be around for a long time to come. Thanks for your support and for checking out my art with all its evolution over the years.
Here's to 50,000, 100,000, and on and on...

Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.
I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,

CrimsonColt7 Harassment Warning: SUPER IMPORTANT!!Take a deep breath, this is a LONG post.
There is a guy hunting around deviantArt and has been trying to scam people out of their artwork. He is named CrimsonColt7(I'm trying to avoid tagging him. If he finds this, he has to be searching for it). This guy has an incredibly false sense of entitlement, and if you decline his request, he basically tries to blacklist you on his profile and will harass you.
The point of this is to bring forth a ton of the incriminating evidence of his harassment from other people who have had problems with him. That way, anyone can spread this journal around and hopefully prevent anyone else from falling prey to his scheming.
It will almost always start out exactly like this:

WHAT HE DOES
・Asks for a trade/collab ・
・If you tell him to commission instead, he claims he has no access to paypal ・
