I’m starting Inktober again! A Halo-themed piece immediately came to mind for the first prompt today. I’ve never drawn the Pillar of Autumn despite having played Halo for 15 years, so that’s a new one for sure!
Except last year, I pretty much try to get a birthday piece done every year. It varies in content, but it generally is characters of mine being kind or silly. This year I went for the former, and had my OC Jennifer, along with my blog mascot Yorina grab a seat with a self-portrait of yours truly. I rarely have myself depicted in artworks, so it was a little charming, to be honest.
As usual, I did the coloring and the background, and opted to use the station background from Rafferty’s Mobius as the backdrop. On top of my that, my Type-10 Obsidian Anvil is pretty prominent on the pad. It seems more mashed up with genres, but you can always count on me crunching genres like this together.

Youtuber VampKandy took the time to read one of my first NoSleep stories from 2014, Those Things in the Field! It’s a two-parter video with some fairly good voice acting. She’s just starting out, so please do check out her channel and subscribe.

Recently I picked up a good bit of followers after iiluminaughtii published her video on my AntiMLM comics. I’ve not picked up that amount of people in quite a bit, so a thanks was in order. Thank you, all of you. Please do stick around, and I’ll do my best to give you interesting things to look at.
Unlike last year, I actually took some time to properly decorate my office space now that construction was done more or less. Since I did have a fair amount of work this month, I especially tried to make sure it looked real Christmas-y around the workstation, and even had a garland going around under the monitors! And while I did set up the community tree, I didn’t get to do anything community with it this year, unfortunately. I’ll try to do better next time!
This was gift art to KobaltWolf, admin of a Zelda fan page and a streamer of Overwatch. She absolutely loves Hanzo and after a joke about “forgetting how to princess”, I knew I had to draw the two together.
Thankfully cweinmanart was there to help me out, and this was the result of that idea. Kobalt loved it and even uses for her Discord and streams. Cool!

This took a while to get realized, but I finally got this put together after this meme was passing around on 9GAG. Also apparently some other people carry on the same commentary as well, since all you do is stand, point and click.
However far it goes, at least it’s been visualized! Also was fun to do the obnoxious cover in style with those 90’s games. A lot of Cluefinders and those types of stuff I drew inspiration from.

Took a bit, but I finally got the art process video done for the Ellowwod Keepers piece. Enjoy!
After a big hiatus, I started doing Keymailer stuff again, and am slowly digging through my queue. What prompted this? Alex from Isolated Games, who wanted me to check out their game Between the Stars. Looks pretty spiffy so far! This game had a successful Kickstarter; while that may be over, you’re more than welcome to give them additional support when the game comes out!
I’ve been drawing for quite a long time. I sadly can’t say I’ve been drawing for most of my entire life, but it’s safe to say I’ve been drawing for 1/3rd if not more of it.
As described in my previous story about deviantART, my art skills didn’t really take off until I had access to the platform. A couple of years before that I had taken a short three-week special course at Walters State in a summer drawing class. That helped up my skills a whole bunch over my pre-teen drawings. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible, either.
