Interests
Hey there! If you've made your way here form Skin Horse, make yourself welcome, pull up a chair (or a cushion or whatever; I'm partial to beanbag chairs myself) and get comfy in my little corner of deviant art. As you can see, it's a little bit filled with ponies. If that's not your bag, no worries! I appreciate the visit, and hopefully I'll have some non-MLP related stuff coming in the near future. If that *is* your bag, well, enjoy my scribbles, heh.

I have to say that I feel the page is a touch sparse; I am terrible lackadaisical about actually posting art up here, and a lot of my sketches and rough works are just kept on my hard-drive without getting posted. A bad personal habit, and something I need to work on.

Oh, and if for whatever reason you are interested in commissioning me to do an art piece, then a) I am both shocked and honored, and b) get in touch with me via a private message here and then we'll move over to email so I can actually keep things straight. Rates would be something along the lines of $10 for a sketchy piece, $15 for an inked, $25 for fully colored piece, with a $10 addition for a full background and for each additional character.

Hey. :) Your style of drawing Jonah on Skin Horse is my favorite Jonah style of the guest artists so far. Cute expressions on him. And I like the way you depict his eyes.

Hey, thanks so much! I really appreciate the feedback. Expressions are something I kind of pride myself on, whilst I am shaky on the bigger picture of human anatomy (I'm working on it!).

I have a couple of sketches of Jonah and Nera that I'm planning to upload here once the comics are done running. Keep your eyes peeled!

Maybe you should submit those sketches for Sunday use in Skin Horse. :)

Anatomy-wise, some of the poses you've had to draw in your stint on SH would have driven me crazy to get right. When I have a specific pose in mind, I always seem to have to spend inordinate amounts of time learning it.

Hah, truth! They are mostly self-inflicted, to be honest; I like pushing myself, even if the result is less than satisfactory.

I have offered the sketches to Jeff; I think he has some other material in mind for the moment but we'll see what ends up happening. Either way, it'll show up here.
