2015 post-mortem

I had originally wrote a draft 1600+ words covering the last five years, but then I realized this week it was no longer necessary. All my previous blogs cover the last five years fairly well, but the short of it is that 2012 defined my life in a negative way, and I never forgave myself for spending so much just to re-learn what I had already received for free. I am finally able to let it all go this year.

Finally getting a day job has accelerated this year and I really haven’t made a lot of time for finished work, other than the Blizzard Heroes of the Storm contest piece. Most of my sketches were posted to Instagram as I still haven’t taken time to scan my sketchbook drawings going as far back as October 2014.

My goals for 2016 will be to set up an oil painting space in my room and start working more traditionally hereafter, hopefully achieving a good balance between digital and traditional.

Upon the Altar of Storms

HEROES OF THE STORM!

This is my entry in the recent Heroes of the Storm contest hosted by Blizzard through deviantART.
Blizzard Characters featured in this image include: Elite Tauren Chieftain (in Starcraft 2 Terran marine armor), Tyrael (in Warcraft paladin Judgement armor with Ashbringer), Sylvanas and Raynor (default appearances), and Sgt. Hammer (level 8 colors).

I’m still alive

Not sure how many people follow this on the regular, but I haven’t taken time to make a decent content post since the new year. This is the place holder. I’ve been meaning to get a bunch of my sketchbook drawings (the same ones I’ve been posting to my instagram) scanned and properly posted here in the blog and on my dA gallery. Hope to get to this soon. I’ve been working on some portfolio pieces in collaboration with Jon Neimeister (cross art direction for our personal projects), so I hope to have something finished to show soon.

Those that continue to read this blog, thank you for your support.
