FTL!!!!

Dear United States Government, I know I’m not a citizen and I realize money is tight right now, but NASA is starting research into warp field generation which has practice applications such as (relativistically) going 11 times the speed of light. That possibility is absolutely mind-boggling.

Please throw money at them until Star Fleet becomes a real thing.

Another celebrity portrait of one of my favorite people on the face of the planet and a man who I greatly admire; Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Mr Tyson is a huge inspiration to me as a person, scientist, and philosopher of sorts. I really hope to meet him some day in person some day, high-five him, and just talk about space stuff for a few hours.

On working for free

Art friends new plan: if anyone ever asks you to do work for free or “exposure” agree, but send them drawings of dicks until they get fed up.

Fooling around with some hand-drawn type and being mildly depressing.

Rough work in progress of my Omega Metroid redesign. Trying to incorporate some more crustacean elements into it and make it look tough, heavyset, and bulky, like an alien t-tex but on steroids.

I was bored so I doodled a cartoon T-Rex for fun.

I got bored and wanted to paint some kind of pinup. Haven’t painted any ladies is quite some time and it was fun! I need an excuse to paint more girls; girls are so fun to draw.

I don’t understand how other artists do speedpainting; like, it takes me 7,000 hours to do a rough sketch. 

I’ll bet they made a deal with the devil or something. I would totally do that for art superpowers. 

Some of the common birds that can be found in my home province of Ontario, Canada. Ontario is home to far more species of bird than I’ve shown here; some live hear year round, others migrate too and from during the winters, but I’ve chosen what I think are the most recognizable species.  From top to bottom the birds are: Blue Jay, Robin, Crow, Sparrow, Pileated Woodpecker, Mourning Doves, Cardinal, Red-Wing Blackbird, Grackle, Red-tailed Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Great Blue Heron, Common Loon (and chick), Mallard Duck (M & F), and Canadian Goose.

sketchinbad said: Yes, very nice. How do you illustrate... Workflow process? Do you start with pencil, ink, scan and digitize or what? I love the colors and the one tone fills.

I usually work traditionally with watercolour and pen, starting with a rough pencil sketch and working it up from there. 
When I do digital work I tend to work in a similar fashion, starting with a rough sketch, then refining the linework, blocking in the major colours/tones, then blending and adding details, and finally just cleaning up little things that only I would ever notice because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my artwork.

I actually don’t work digitally for the most part so the workflow and process for it is a little new to me, but the Wacom tablet I use makes it much closer to working traditionally. 

Okay, so yesterday I spent all day out at a friends playing Magic and being a huge nerd, I got back home, and went to sleep.
I woke up today to find that my Colbert piece got +1600 notes. 
What the hell happened? I’m confused and flattered and I don’t know what to do with these feels! 

Mr Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report.
Brilliant comedian, one of Maxim’s top 100 sexiest women alive and one of the few people alive today I legitimately admire, so I did a painting of him.
