Get me a Chilli dog and call me a hedgehog. I never thought I would get anywhere near this milestone so quickly. In my short time here on DA I have managed to pick up over 1,600 watches and 100,000 pageviews! That is a whole lot of zeros!
I would like to thank everyone who has been kind enough to support me up to this point. It means a great deal to both me and my Bro that you are all willing to keep tabs on us and the constant interaction in turn helps me improve my own craft. The time I have spent on DA has persuaded me to tackle numerous tasks that I would have likely avoided in the past and I am a much better artist now because of it. I could not have become the guy I have grown into without all of your support. I hope to continue to create a few of pieces of art you will enjoy in the future as well.
In other news I have just upgraded my computer to match my ever growing talent level. This thing is way more powerful than my older rig and should lend itself well to my larger commission projects. (No more constant computer crashes for me!) This is a very exciting development as it has the potential to exponentially increase my activity speed. I loved the thing, but my old laptop was horribly outdated. It’s always nice to move up to the next tier every once in a while and it feels like I am doing just that.
In turns of drawing workload, I am going to be a busy man for the foreseeable future. I have a number of commissions that I am scheduled to work on. One of them is a commission of monstrous proportions that I really have no business attempting. It’s part of the reason I broke down and got a new computer. I’m pretty sure my old one would have exploded under the strain. I promise you all that I’m still working on Chapter 2 of my Victory Road webcomic as well. As I have said in the past I am planning something big for that and it is taking a bit longer than I expected due to the recent boom in demand for my higher level commission offerings.
So that is that for this post. I will have more art, contests giveaways and the like in the future. Just gotta get over this slight hump of work before I can begin that stuff again. In the short term, I’ll be sure to continue to keep taking my game up a few levels, to help justify all the attention you guys are giving me!
Right off the bat, I knew how I wanted to get the poses done for this image. Dynaroo came to me with an idea, but was nice enough to give me all the freedom I could want as far as building the image itself was concerned. I love it when that happens. I try to reward buyers with that kind of faith in me.
The image itself its pretty cute. Sticks is pretty adorable, pumping up that bubble to the absurd degree that you know only Sticks can. Amy's caught between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, her assertiveness makes her want to lash out at her feisty friend for her imminent bad hair day. Yet on the other, she's doing her best to hide behind that trusty hammer of hers.
My opinion? I think pinkie is doomed. lol
Anyway, I want to take this space to once again thank Dynaroo for choosing me for this commission. I love drawing the Sonic cast and I know you've got a lot of artists to choose from so I hope I did right by you.
If anyone else would like a commission from BDZ incorporated, of Sonic characters or any characters really, just give me a holler. I'd love to hear from you. I'll even drop a link to my famous price chart. Its got all the info you need to get started.
Those of you who stay locked in to my feed should feel the familiar vibes coming off of this piece. Its a contrast "mirror image" of sorts to the Masked Matterhorn commission I tackled a few weeks back.
When DM came to me for this commission, I immediately thought it would be cool to have this image take place on the other side of the same rooftop. Its got the same dynamic camera-work (in the opposite direction of course) and instead of highlighting the hero, this pic is all about visualizing the villain.
I already had Aria's design pretty much down thanks to some earlier commission work, so this image was free to focus on her ghastly powers. Her flames have a spark of an otherworldly rise to them. The angled image helps sell that even more. The whole thing is pretty cool and comes together nicely.
Alright, thanks again to Darthmind for locking up another commissioned piece from yours truly. If anybody else out there feels the need for speed... or at least the need to get me to draw something for you, just take a look at my price chart and get back to me.
Been a while since I've tackled a commission off of DA, but my door is open so I've got no problem working with new people.
This was a small commission I did as part of a webseries run by a friend of mine. It was pretty cool to sit down and help design something of an avatar for the guy. We put a lot of thought into the ins and outs of what we wanted and several walls-o-text later, this guy was the end result.
If any of you out there are avid readers, and think you might be in the mood for something entertaining to that effect. Why don't you head over to the KrimsonRouge youtube channel to take in some of his content. I hear it comes with an Adorable Kitten Co-Star, so you know you can't go wrong there!
I'lll even drop an easy to use link to give you a straight shot to the gold mine! Ain't I nice!
I was instructed to have Wario holding the Queen on a golden throne surrounded by bags of moolah. I certainly enjoy working on a playful image like this as it serves as a nice break up for my usually more action packed pieces.
It takes good character interaction to sell a picture like this and I am pretty pleased with how it comes across here. Wario looks like he is actually holding Merelda, and that she has tangible weight. That bit of character interaction was difficult to achieve considering Wario, who is doing the holding, is so much significantly smaller than Queen Merelda, the one being held. This could have very easily turned out badly on that facet alone.
Thanks a lot to SonicTheCaptain for ordering another piece from me. If anyone else would like me to tackle a character or two of their choice be sure to take a look at my commission price chart before getting in contact with me.
Let’s kick this description off with something akin to a riddle. What happens when an unstoppable force meets no unmovable object? Well, obviously that force is going to keep trucking along, so that’s pretty much what we have here. Metal Sonic is a beast of a machine to contend with, so try as she might I’m not quite sure Spitfire (or any pony for that manner) is enough of a deterrent to slow that mecha-monstrosity for long.
The pose is pretty straightforward. It actually takes its cues from a Superman comic. Spitfire is doing her best to hold Metal head back, but the poor girl is little more than a speedbump. He might not even notice her hanging on. Throw in some laser beams shooting out of his eye balls and you’ve got yourself one heck of a killer robot rampage. Get out of the way people.
So that wraps that up. Thanks again to FerrumFlos1st for choosing me to get this done. Pleasure doing business with ya. If anyone else thinks they might want some commission work done, then by all means check out my price chart and send me a line.
