I'm glad to see so many people liking, faving, and commenting on my artwork. A few skeptics here and there, but that's to be expected. Not all of my work is original, but it is all free-handed and colored by hand. The copied works I draw are tributes paid not just to the characters in the picture, but the original artists as well. Anyways, just recently I got a brand new computer as well as a new all-in-one printer and scanner. I love the resolution the scanner gives me. In fact, I've come to like it so much, I have decided to give all my pictures a bit of an "HD" makeover. Not all the pictures will be redone however, due to the fact that with some of them, I either sold or gave away the originals. But most of the ones that were sold were very old by date, so perhaps there will be a bit of preserved authenticity to the pictures.
Also, some of you may have noticed that a couple of my more explicit pictures are no longer available. That is because they were deemed too explicit by the site administrators. My apologies to the admins for not following the rules of the site. I was unaware as to where the line was drawn in explicit artwork. But now that I have a better idea as to what is deemed inappropriate for the site, I will avoid posting such material from now on.
I will not be submitting any new artwork as fast as I'd like to, due to the fact my hours at work have increased and I still have school to focus on, but I will still set aside some time to work on more submissions. Keep on watching, fellow deviants! Peace.

~ Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

This phrase summarizes me quite well. I like to stand out from the rest of the crowd. I don't consider myself a professional artist because my artwork is something of a hobby... something I like to work on every now and then. Many people tell me to make it a profession, but turning it into something I'd have to do every day would kill the passion. My true passion is in acting. Nothing better than being myself in someone else's character in front of the whole world.
