New tutorial on the horizon

Woooo, I finally finished recording my new video tutorial, let the clouds part and angels rejoice. My days of recording in the closet are over...until the next time I start recording a new tutorial that is. The video is approximately 128 minutes of real time video. There are two versions available, one in 1280x800 for $10 and one in 1440x900 for $12. Both versions come bundled with the brushes I use and a psd file of my illustration. As a special bonus for purchasing this tutorial, I will select a random person to receive an Intuos 3 6x8 tablet. To […]



Worldwake

My first card from Magic: The Gathering Worldwake has been posted on the WotC site. I have a total of three cards in this set, not quite as many as some of the other sets. In other news, I am still working on the Female Hunter video tutorial. I still have about 80 minutes of audio to record. I also have another 3 videos recorded, but I haven't added any audio yet. I am not sure how many of them will be free videos, but I have been playing around with the idea of releasing free versions of all of […]



2dartist magazine interview

Today my interview with 2DArtist Magazine came out. I have been a long time contributor for 2DArtist Magazine, but for some reason or another I never got around to doing an interview. I have to say, I am quite pleased with the result. After getting my download link I was pleasantly surprised to see how many double page spreads they added...they are huge! I guess I can't hide anything now. The issue is packed with a ton of great art and some really neat tutorials, so be sure to pick up a copy on the 2DArtist site. You can also […]



New WoW lootz

A few of my new WoW illustrations for the Naxxramas raid deck came out last month. I also did the Cover of Silence card, but that illustration was pretty lame so I'm not going to post it. I refuse!



Tutorial sneak peek

As many of you know I have been releasing free video tutorials for the past 5 months on my YouTube site. In addition to those I have released several written tutorials over the past few years. I have always genuinely believed in giving back to the artistic community in any way that I can. I will continue to release free tutorials as often as I can, time permitting. I currently work 80-100 hours a week, 7 days a week. These tutorials are made on my free time when I am not working. One day I hope to have more time […]



Morning Thunder, pyu pyu

Or perhaps I should say bzzt bzzt. In any case, this is such a momentous occasion that it warrants a blog post. I woke up this morning and realized that I had a package waiting for me in the front office. It actually arrived the other day but the office was closed due to the holiday, curse you holiday! I threw on my clothes and braved the blistering cold wind, and let me tell you, it was worth it. I now have in my possession 6 boxes of Morning Thunder, the bane of fatigue. Here it is in all of […]



Shiny New Tablet

You know it is the holiday when large tablets of awesomeness abound. I am a total sucker for new technology and the new Intuos 4 is no exception. The first thing that one notices about the Intuos 4 is the widescreen format and the new express keys and speed ring. The cool thing about the Intuos 4 is its ambidextrous design. In the control panel you can set the tablet to either right handed or left handed. There are two usb ports that you can choose from depending on which one better suits your taste. Yes, this tablet finally allows […]
