So I'm going to make a concerted effort, now that we're in the "new beginning" phase of this blog, to update as close to daily as I can. To that end, here's what's currently "on deck" for the next week or two of my arting. We've got the previously shown commission (now in progress on a board), an X-Men Danger Room pin-up, a(hard to see) Transmetropolitan pin-up, and yes, a new page for my webcomic! Lots to do lots to do.

WIP of a portal commission for a friend. It's a pretty specific reference to a fan video she and others put together for a Valve competition. I post the second bit of business there to show my compositional guideposts. I don't always use the golden spiral and when I do I don't always use it exactly, but for basic balance it's a great tool. Here I sketched the base image and then overlayed the spiral just to tweak and nudge things into the right orientation to guide the viewer through the image. Anyway, more of this piece as the week moves on. TTFN.

So, through a series of really unfortunate events, I accidentally deleted all the art that was previously in this blog. It's sad, but I take it as a new beginning. Let's start a new chapter in this blog. Fresh. A clean slate. I'll start by saying that I'm opening up commissions again this week, and stay tuned for details on that. Secondly, check out the new art! One piece is a commission for a co-worker and his fiancee who wanted to be rendered as a comic book couple, and the other is a group shot of all the characters in Ideology of Madness's Knights of Reignsborough series. Both are examples of color commissions, so if you like what you see and would like some of your own, let me know!
