In the Master Chief, We Trust

A newer, far superior Halo fan art.

Attended the Winnipeg Toy/comic con convention for the first time last week (over 1000+ attended). I did far more business in the Artists alley than I expected, selling out of all my new stuff, and getting rid of most everything else. I desperately need to re-stock my prints.

More Artists alley lessons learned:
• Prints Sell. Sell Prints.
• Come over-prepared, you can always sell stuff/or will need it later down the road.
(i was kicking myself for having such limited quantities last weekend)
• No matter how obvious you label your prices, you still need to tell people how much stuff costs.
• Funny stuff sells. especially fanart funnies.
• every kid under 18 wants halo artwork
• bring a large book/magazine full of comic book characters. I had a couple obscure requests I could of really used some reference for.
• Doing free sketches for kids under 12 is a fantastic way for getting other stuff sold

...I feel a bit... im not sure, dishonest? making all this fanart from shows/games that I've never even played or watched. lol

Calgary Expo is also coming up! tré excited to head to that, get to meet Data from star trek! (I am a big fan of the Next Gen series)

Big Sister

So here is my take on the Big sis's from the return to rapture! made her a tad more scandalous than the actual, but hey ;) i try to give you guys what you want

Never actually played the bio-shock games, but the concept art and story has always been intriguing to me.

God of War! RAWR! hehe

from the games "God of War" 1, 2, and soon to be 3

spring is pretty much here! woot!
very much looking forward to some warm weather and riding my bike to work once more.
Also, be moving soon as well! which is always a bit exciting, as well as a massive pain... trying to pack up your massive accumulation of junk and move it. bleah.

on another side note: I've been watching the "Big Bang Theory" lately, good show :D

stay classy

District 9 bot

great film

kinda wish we could have seen more of this mech- but with a pilot that knew how to actually drive it, haha. Very much looking forward to the the next film. about to attend a whack of conventions to sell my artwork, any suggestions for other characters you would like to see?

Alien Queen

I took screenshots during the creation of her majesty, and plan on compiling them into a tutorial for my next post!

Such an epic monster...
