A digitally colorfull 2011

Mon Jan 10, 2011, 12:00 PM
Things are finally looking bright artwise for the 2011! For starters I'm finally taking a digital-coloring class with :iconel-grimlock: and finally seeing all I'm doing wrong :D. I'm finally starting to clear some of the waaaaaay delayed commissions I couldn't pull last year (and some the year before that...) and I finally got my dayjob hours fixed allowing me to put 2 more hours a day on illo work, which will change drastically my terrible turn over and hopefully catch up with all my work in the next month.

I haven't been idle this past few months, but most of the work (around 85%)I've been doing is to-be-published stuff and I won't be able to show it for a long while. I did neglected my dA site and I hope I'll get to fix that soon.

All in all, things are falling into place now and I hope now I'll be able to properly turn in all pending commissions with a proper compensation (butter chocolate frogs or else :D) for your appreciated patience and support.

Looking forward to a colorful -and non-delayed commissions-  2011!

Back on Track

Fri Jul 30, 2010, 1:33 PM
The past few weeks (months?) I've had a very small presence on dA, small compared to the almos-one-a-day illo update of the past couple years... Lately lots of frustrations, heavy dayjob duty and some private commission work kept me away from the lovely non-too-contractual commission work, which, honestly, I enjoy a bit more than the published stuff.

I'm making an effort to upload more stuff now and soon to get back on the free and almost-one-year-old commissioned stuff that I owe to lots of realy patient people. I have not been iddle but the contractual work cannot be uploaded until its published and that keeps LOTS of the stuff I've worked on out of the public eye... I'll try to double the efforts to upload some of that illos that have already been published and to get faster on the previous paid non-private commissions.

Some good news! I'm going to suscribe soon to a professional digital coloring classes, so, hopefully we'll see a nice improvement on that not-too-nice skill of mine. Hopefully this will bring a faster and nicer finishing of the previous pending commissions! :D

Thanks for continuing watching and for your patience

Back to the Start

Fri May 14, 2010, 10:30 PM
After MUCH thinking and an email with a friend "in the biz", I have decided to step down for a while from the Illustration gig.

No more "professional" work for me!

No matter how hard I tried I just keep falling behind and behind on deadlines, and drawing started to become more a frustration than a pleasure, not to mention all the disappointed people waiting on me to publish their work...

On top of that, I have plenty of amazing people waiting on me almost a year from now on commissions... amazing people who have supported me in many ways and help me improve on my work, without much thought of getting an illo from me in exchange.

From now and for some months (not sure how long), I'll stop all commercial and private work (-with two exceptions, can't let everyone down!) to focus on two things:
-Previous owed artwork
-practice and portfolio buld up.
Of course, current "professional" commisioned artwork will be finished ASAP.

I will focus back on the people who have helped me grow and keep on drawing, and I will do so by finally getting back exclusively to their commissions and by drawing for FUN and PRACTICE.

So, thank you all for your patience and shpport and I'm looking forward to pay you back and get your pending stuff done real fast, and this time I mean it :D

I’m starting a “fund rising” for the Printing of Wayfinder 3 and my trup to Paizocon :D Fortunately, the Wayfinder fundrising its well on its way and we are around 70%+ of its print cost thou I’m trying to raise to full 100% and maybe some more to add a paper mini set and hopefully a bit more to cover some of my trip expenses ;) So, if you like one or some of these drawings, the original is right up and ready to go your way and be hung in a wall or used as a napkin if you hate it good and well.

Wayfinder 3 Artwork

Tue Apr 20, 2010, 10:11 AM
Most commissions have been sent and I'm awaiting reply on a few artists. As I mentioned before this time I'm relying on fewer artists to handle a faster communication and deadlines.

On the next wayfidner we'll continue to rely on all the artists who have been with us and wish to continue sharing their work on WF and there could be more opportunities to show art and articles in the near future.

Thanks for your support and we hope to continue counting on you!

Back to Work

Mon Apr 5, 2010, 9:19 AM
After a looooong (too long!) week of vacations, I'm back and ready to don the artist-monkey costume!

Wayfinder art orders will be issued this week and as I mentioned, this time the deadline is much shorter and therefore I'll assign more pieces to fewer illustrators in order to speed things up. For those who do not get a piece this time, please do not abandon ship, for we will continue to bother you with art requests for future Wayfinders, I just need to have a tigher control on this issue :D

Commissions will resume a steady phase after this week, for I have to wrap up a few projects left pending after disappearing last week.

There are a few professional projects pending which MUST be finished this month, and after those, I'll ease up on that kind of work to use more time on color practice and cartography, which is most needed.

These are only five listed "Private" commissions in queue, there are more behind scenes and another not listed that will be up this weekend, a drow pair of gals. Those commissions not listed and who wants to know their status, please contact me.

I'm still swamped with "professional" commissions that have to be delivered this month, so I'm still clinging to a few dozen illos before diving deep into the private stuff. Starting april I'll be wrapping up all pro-stuff and going full time (spare time, that is) with Wayfinder 3 and the private comish, which means I'll be pulling out at at least two commissions a week and clear all the super-delayed art in two months top.

Thank you all for your patience!
