I'm your run of the mill nerd-artist. I love video games, anime/cartoons, fantasy/scifi movies, and get very jealous of those who can draw better of me and wish I instantly had their skill.

In the summer of 2009 while working as a groundskeeper at a cemetery I came up with the idea for a webcomic. This idea eventually led me to download a "how to draw Manga" book and see what I could do. I never actually read the book, just took tips here and there from it and in late 2009 I came up with my first drawings. A year later I dropped the comic idea didn't like keeping myself to deadlines and really wanted to just focus on improving and began just trying to get better at drawing. I then came up with my current batch of OCs who make up pretty much all my drawings.

I've never taken a class or any lessons on drawing. All I've learned has come from reading through different books own 5 now, talking to artist who have been inspirations to me to get tips and tricks, and a whole lot of trial and error.

I'd love to hear your feedback on my work. Though try not to be too harsh...

For the lack of anything lately.  Things have been, very slow when it comes to working on drawings as my life has been somewhat hectic and my mind just not into drawing (moving, going back to school, video games, matters of the heart).  The old things that I never finished now look horrible to me and I don't really have the motivation to continue them.  Even the commission for Skie I look at and want to redo completely...  As for new drawings, that is where I am making a little progress.  I have been working on a sketch of Allison, an idea I had at the beginning of summer, and it is actually coming along quite nicely (people who look at my Tumblr will have seen the preview of it).  I'm hoping to have it done soon and to once again do livestreams after it is scanned onto the computer.

For those who have been patiently waiting for the second contest, I'm sorry for the delay and it will be starting soon, start of October soon.  Don't worry it will  run into November so you guys can still do Halloween contests as well.  As a heads up this next one won't be as open ended as the last.  The content is very selective, well the location that is....

Thank you all for being patient with me and I hope I can get out of this funk real soon.......I don't want to go to work....I need to get better nights sleep...

So lately I have been trying to motivate myself back into drawing.  I've slowly been doing some sketches, nothing post worthy, just trying to get my skills back to up.  As for the old things I have had sitting on my computer...it is hard to say.  I tried doing some work yesterday on one of them, but just could not get much done without thinking that it wasn't coming out any good.  Plus the current setup for my new tablet is just awful.  The tablet sits on a desk on the other side of the room.  Didn't know how much I relied on a mouse and keyboard for things.  But a rearranging of furniture isn't that hard, the hard part is just trying to sit down and work on art again....maybe I am just not cut out to be an artist.....time for work...
I want to thank all those who submitted entries and have been patient with me as I judged them.  It was a tough one.  I know I say that all the time when I hold a contest, but that is because it is always true.  You all did such a great job and I was glad to see that you had fun with your ideas.  I certainly enjoyed them all.  It is a shame I could not give out more prizes.  Okay, but you all really don't care about this jibber-jabber.  You really just want to see who one the prizes and such.  So here they are.

First Place:
Twisted by Hypoflyse by: :iconhypoflyse:
The world that Hypoflyse came up with was one that just so different than anything else that it pretty much blew me away.  I overall world seemed well thought out and the execution of it was amazing as well.  For that Hypoflyse has won first place.

Second Place:
Allison's Omniverse Adventure Contest by SarahWidiyanti by :iconsarahwidiyanti:
It was all the small details that really caught my eye in this drawing that helped it win second place.  The look of the Skeleton Key, the air bubble around Allison's head, he books, the fish, I could go on.  SarahWidiyanti did an excellent job.

Third Place:
Encounter With The Beast of White Valley by longlovevegeta by: :iconlonglovevegeta:
longlovevegeta did an amazing job showing how Allison did not need to be the front and center focus of the drawing.  The tiny Allison dwarfed by the Beast of White Valley lets you see more of the world she is visiting and the size of the creature which she encountered.

There would be too large of a list for honorable mentions because of all the great entries.  If you want a detailed explanation of why you did not place, then feel free to send me a note and I will explain as best I can to you.

I will be contacting those who placed via note as well just in case they did not happen to see this with information about receiving their prizes and how they would like them.

Now, before anyone asks about it, the grand prize is not listed here for a reason.  That reason is that the grand prize winner will be chosen from people who have entered this contest and one that will be coming up soon.  I have to write something up for it first and when I get that done it will be started.  Do not be worried if you did not place in this contest cause all those have entered this one and the next one will be eligible, not just those who happen to place and I will not be the only one choosing the grand prize winner.  There will be a panel for that.  More about it all will be in the next contest description.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks again to all those who entered!!

You're welcome.  You are a great artist and I was absolutely blown away when I saw that drawing of Ryuko.  Made me super jealous of your talent.  Keep up the great work and I look forward to when you open commissions again because I would love to have you draw one of my OCs.

No need to thank me so much, I only speak the truth and you're right.  With practice I will get better.  I just wish I had more time to work on practicing my art.  Though I doubt I will get better than you.  Will keep an eye open for when you open commissions again!
