Hi all! As usual, I am still alive and am active here on DA, even if my journals don't reflect that. I have gotten a few questions regarding my activity here on DA, as well as plans on my art. Here on my responses on a few of them:Why did you fav all my nature pics??
I love nature photography and often use it as reference for my own nature-themed illustrations.
This does not mean I am planning on copying your work! Rather, my constant favoring of Deviations is a way for me to gather new inspiration. I may on occasion study a photograph to help correctly draw something, but I will never flat-out copy someone's work. However, if you do have a piece that your are willing to share as reference, or would like to see my illustrated interpretation of it, please send me a note and we'll talk.
Also - please don't flood my profile page with "thank you for faving" messages!
I appreciate the sentiment, but I would prefer to leave that area for comments related to my gallery and profile. However, you will make me a very happy camper if you take a look at my stuff. That wold be the best way to thank me!I don't see that much nature-themed art in your gallery. Why?
I actually have a pretty extensive portfolio of nature art. However, most of this art is done traditionally and I have yet to make quality scans of it. As a result, most of what you see is newer stuff. I do plan on posting a lot more, so please keep an eye out for it.Are you still doing Fan Art?
Yes and no. I am still open to any fan art commissions and will prioritize them. However, as for my own stuff, I feel that I am growing out of the fan art-only world and would rather work on stocking up my portfolio on original works. And who knows, I may throw in a Borra or CCS piece now and then.Are you available for commissions?
Totally! I am very flexible on doing commissions (both fan art and original) and have a reasonable rate. Please see my previous journal entry for pricing and details.
I am working very hard on a new portfolio site, so stay tuned for updates on that. Until then please refer to my last journal entry for
