Hey folks! So this year's #Drawtober
has drawn to a close. There were a huge amount of awesome entries in every style and some really interesting interpretations of the prompts. I didn't get to take part as much as I'd like, but I was pretty pleased with those I did enter, despite falling way short of the 50% goal I'd set myself. I made a focused effort to try to produce more scenes, rather than just a character on a blank page or whatever, as that's been something of a weakness of mine. It's definitely paid off, with my confidence in my ability to craft a believable environment increased considerably. I'm now rapidly running short of excuses to myself as to why I can't produce something sequential, like a short story form graphic novel or webcomic. I'm definitely going to be considering those options in 2015, so maybe I'll talk more about some kind of project soon.
I'm pleased as a lazy cat in a hammock that my work has been chosen to appear in the Naked Warriors of Nudist Beach (a KLK Fan Zine)
curated by the fabulous Kelly Kao
), alongside some awesome talents like dCTb
. Kill La Kill fans (or just fans of awesome art in general) can pre order the zine now here
from Kelly's online store.
Also I'm gonna plug my Tumblr again for those of you who have the inclination to tumble. You can see more of my works in progress, sketches and also some featured work by some of the artists who inspire me over here
! You can also follow me on twitter
for more art and general observations about the British weather. Trust me, it's a thing over here.
So the evenings are getting shorter for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. At risk of senselessly abusing the new hashtag system that DA has finally adopted, it's safe to say #winteriscoming
. Between now and the New year I'm going to be working through the dark nights by getting through my 'ooh that seems a good idea to art'
list that consists of ideas that have been rattling around my head for a while and some fan art I've been meaning to do but haven't had time. I should also have time for the odd commission here and there if anyone's interested. I'm not going to "OFFICIALLY OPEN UBER SLOTS PEOPLES!!!!"
or anything like that, but suffice to say if you'd like your OC
arted by me, just drop me a note or hit me up at EzJedi(at)aol.com
(change the at
for an @ obviously) for more details and I'll give you a price.
Right, that's me spent for now. For those of you who celebrate Guy Fawkes night, have a safe and fun night! And wrap up warm if you're here in the UK, it's going to be pretty chilly this evening especially in the north (near the Wall! Pffft, sorry, couldn't help myself!). See, told you we're all obsessed with the weather here in Britain! Take it easy folks!
