Apparently this happen...

Then this happened...


So yeah, the US and Japan are actually going to have a giant robot fight...

let me repeat that A GIANT ROBOT BATTLE! BLAHAHAHAHA!

Stupid gimmick, yes but in the best possible way considering this means fighting in giant robots is now a actual thing.

Now for some fight music: FIGHT!

Thanks for the good words last post, guys. Been a tough week but I've have tougher. Work has been keeping me busy with co-workers out of sick leave and with no one to cover their shifts due to too much overtime last month. My apartment is getting fixed up but it's more or less in-spite my land lord being a ignorant asshole. Not sure how much more crap I'll need to deal with in the upcoming weak but I had to put up with allot more #### at my old job with people I hated for allot less pay and now that I pay my rent on time, my Landlord can learn to eat it.

I can think of a few artist I follow here that that may been dealing with allot more harsh crap in the last few weeks, some stuff I can relate to (being out of work and being evicted some years ago) and some shit I can only try to relate (I never had sexism cost me a job but I have worked with a couple of assholes that I could swear wanted me to stab them with a kitchen knife... ah, the restaurant business) All can say to you guys is that pushing through all this crap does proves your the tougher than all the bastards trying to make it hard for you. So hear is to kicking down obstacles and fighting the fight blow for blow.

Tired, been short handed at work with a assistant manager out on vacation and the people who should be covering his shift are cover shifts at another store because someone forgot he was on vacation.

Best part, I get home to find my land lord left me a message stating it would be easier for me to move than to repair the plumbing in my bathroom and the lock on my door... what!?

 I've become Darth Helmet, I'm surrounded by Assholes

I honestly have no idea how some artist color fur coats on animal so easily, I must be looking at the wrong How To or something because it's taking me way too long.

Just thought I would take this time between art updates to plug Zombie Ranch
www.zombieranchcomic.com/
A Webcomic by Dawn artofdawn.deviantart.com/ and Clint Wolf.

Though it was good time to point out what a wonderful job Dawn and Clint are doing by creating a zombie comic that turns allot of the zombie genre and related tropes on it's head without becoming becoming a a total parody. The comic is a great example of world building and approaching a genre (or in this case, two genres) in completely new direction.

Busy week but finally starting to make some progress on that commission. I'm going to have to make sure the next job is something other than a god damn Dire Wolf lol
Any how, got a couple of ideas for my next project bud my bud Sunder might have another commission ready for after the latest wolf is finish. Regular updates for the first time all year, holy s**t!

Also, music from Beast Wars is free... I mean the band actually gives away their music on BandCamp.com, these guys are awesome :toolcool: DJ Sunder of Underfiend radio can let know of any other bands worth listing to, always plugs the guys who give away their stuff. You can also just search BandCamp a put he few bucks in the Donation box for the guys who are giving us this stuff for free.

More soon, in the mean time I'm listening to more god damn Beast Wars!

Been getting use to a new screen this week, going to have to reset my graphic settings on my games to go along with this nice crisp resolution I have now.

Also have another commission... it's another damn. I have a bad habit of drawing one thing over and over again but at least I'm getting paid to make this one look extra demonic.

Well, I got Skyrim after Christmas but haven't played it much (spending my free time grinding on Mechwarrior Online) Now that I'm taking a break from MechWarrior, I decided to load up Skyrim was again from where I left off and... am now getting my ass kicked...allot.

Little frustrating a return to the single player game to get away from the online grind only to discover I now need to grind to get my charter up a level so he can stop getting bitched slapped by trolls.

maybe I'll just download a mod that will give me a AK-47... f**king trolls.

Sorry for going so long without a update guys. Busy at work, catching up with friends, meeting new people but the worst offender is probably MWO. I have been sketching but few things have been post worthy, I'll get started on new sketches soon, need a new portfolio for this years Project Comic Con. Ideas are welcome :)

In the meantime, Intermission!

Happy New Years everyone!

New Years Resolutions for 2015:

1.) Get back in fighting shape.

2.) Draw more, practice and improve my art techniques

3.) Do more commissions

4.) Get out more, hang out with friends and meet new people.

5.) Become a better Mechwarrior and look into becoming a Demo agent.

I was kind of a work-a-holic this year and I let myself get burnt out. I need to make time for me to have a life.

My new with both MechWarrior Online and Skyrim so I will have plenty of inspiration for drawing but I really need to look beyond the BTU genre to expand my portfolio. I owe a buddy of mine, DJ Sunder a commission for helping a with my new PC and he is always good for getting me to something new. 

I still have allot of financial goals that I did not get completed in 2014 but working myself to death has not been the answer. Hopefully literally going back to the drawing board will help.

Here is to New Year and a new start for us all :)

Been busy, didn't notice the new DA logo till now. While I won't champion any of DA's latest... "updates" but the new logo is confusing. Why change the logo after all this time? Your a established brand know by most who post on the web! The fact that we are see so many changes to DA on the later part of the year means one of two things; DA feels they need to re-establish their brand to become 'trendy' again (though DA was never trendy) or they are losing traffic and are starting to panic. *shrug* I started posting on DA because it was a easy place to post work, still is (Tumblr is way too random) don't think that will change soon but still...

Computers online and all systems are nominal!

Turns out it was the power source and it ended up being a quick fix. I'll be needing a upgrade soon but I still have all my files and no damage so far. 

I've been stuck in a rut for a while but I'm going to try to start building myself up again for the holidays so hopefully that will mean more updates in the near future.

Sorry for the lack of updates guys, got hung up on a few things at work along with my usual 'not good enough' wall with my art. But a heard a good friend of mine is not feeling well so it's motivation for some new artwork of her favorite characters. This means I'm going to leave my pencil sketches unfinished but I will be posting some new stuff shortly.

In the mean time, drinking music;
