Just felt inspired to do this today. I had never drawn The Question before today, and I wanted to do something so that I could practice on my digital skills in regard to inking and drawing and so forth. This is the product of that practice. This took about say, 2 hours to do, all 100% Photoshop.
This is something that I think would look good as a shirt or something like that. But for right now, it's gonna be a print. I'm going to slap some colors on this soon, but not right now. I will have it done in time for the Con season though. I'm gonna do both a Black and White, and Color Print for these. I'm hoping that with the low price I'm putting on these bad boys that they will go fast.
I'm allowing folks to color the picture here, so if you are an aspiring colorist looking to get some practice, then don't hesitate to drop me an email and a request. I do take commissions by the way. Be sure to visit IDArtSales when you get the time to get some cool traditional artwork! Well I'm off to bed folks. See you all later!

Hey guys, I'm back to let you know what's going on right now! I have been working on my graphic novel The Seven for over a year now, and after getting started with the lineart, and reading the script more, I decided that I didn't like it, and that I wanted to start over in the story. This time around I brought on another writer to help work with my current writer on the story Ricky Burnett to get this thing going. I am going to revamp the story to be a more realistic and believable story.
The writer working on the story now is here on DA, and is also an aspiring digital colorist named Brandon Smith. He even has a page on DA. Check him out here ----> http://brandon-smith.deviantart.com
Last night, I started a crowdfunding campaign over on Indie Go-Go to bring the first part of this graphic novel to life. CAINE is the first story in this book, and it will be made into a stand alone comic. This is being done for the purpose of promotion and to get the story into your hands to whet the appetite for the graphic novel. I plan on running a bigger campaign in the future on Kickstarter, but need help right now raising funds for a colorist to do the book for us. I have a goal of $2000 right now, and I really really need your help in two ways; either by spreading the word about my book, or by actually donating and helping us get this book rolling. There are rewards and perks for donating, and all that do will receive them. I thank you guys so much in advance, and please please please go spread the word and help in any way you can!

This is the newest Silver Surfer piece that I did today. I am very proud of it, and is a far better improvement from the last Surfer piece I did earlier this year. This one here took me a good 3 hours to do, and I put a lot into this pic. I am selling it on my IDWalker Art Sales page, and hope that it sells soon. My goal is to get one of my pieces on that site to sell. I am betting on Fate and Surfer here to be some of the first to go. We shall see! Let me know what you guys think in the meantime.

The minds of children are the most imaginative vehicles of thought, and wonder I know. I came across this site by means of a Twitter feed in which Adrienne Curry brought to light. It's a site where this artist Dave DeVries took a simple childs drawing, and added texture, three dimension and reality to it as much as possible, and came up with some of the coolest, most original artwork I have ever seen in a long time. I need you folks who either need to get inspired, or want to get more inspired to take a look!
I LOVE RnB, and I love certain kinds of rap. Most of it is garbage right now because I think it all talks about the same things... Girls, Money, Drugs, etc...
I have been listening to Drake's new album, Take Care, and though I still can't call myself a Drake fan, I can tell you that I really really enjoyed this album. This album had a straight line of hearts going down as I liked nearly every track on this album. It had heart, talked about real life things I could relate to. The beats were really nice, and it showed off this dude's singing ability. My favorite track is Headlines, and my favorite line "Shout out to the asian girls, so let the lights Dim Sum." I fell out of my chair when I heard that line.
I wanted to talk about something different on this blog and let you guys know a bit more about me as an artist and what inspires me when I do my artwork. This is one of the things I have been listening to that have helped me to push the envelope on my artwork. Got more pics coming soon though!
