Hey! I'll be cleaning my older (horrid) work off this account soon, so if you have something you'd like to preserve for posterity I suggest you grab it now - OCT stuff's going too so watch out!

Lately I've been getting into street fighter again and was reading about how they make some sprites for the arlier games and I saw this image.

My question is, does anyone know if this is from an artbook? and if so, does anyone know the name of it?

Yo, how's it going.

This account is going to be modified to work as a portfolio page and I'll be moving most of my art along with new art to another account, I'll post the new account when I've finished making it look nice.

P.S. Got a new Wacom Cintiq too :)

I Have returned, Driving thru Mexico was a horrible experience

Update: 01/26/09

Yo there, gio here just saying wassup. I'm currently talking from an internet cafe in ol Guatemala. Gonna be heading back sooner than anticipated. I don't want to get into much of what happened here but long story short, There was a huge carcrash and we almost lost someone important. Things got real emotional and well, it all ended with a kodak moment so to speak. The worst that happened after that is that my phone broke and I lost my ipod shuffle, or it got stolen I don't know.

But yeah, we are heading out tommorow morning, because I can't afford any more days off work. So til then

EDIT: Scratch That, we're going back roadwarrior style, TO MEXICO!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------

We got a family situation and I'm gonna leave for a while. Be back when I come back.

Money has been rather though as of late and I'm thinking of taking commission artwork to save up some small cash on the side. The thing is I don't really know what to charge people, so I'm wondering what you guys might consider a reasonable price based on my art?

I would do a poll but alas, I have no subscription

As part of :iconblackharpygoddess:'s Secret Santa team I can't belive I almost forgot to write my own request, so I know it's cutting it close but here it goes...

Don’t really know how to really say this but I’m sure by now many people have heard about :iconendling:’s Medical situation. I can honestly say I don’t know Endling as well as others but the few times we did chat he was always very cool to speak with and has always been generous enough to answer my art questions. He's a decent person with very great talent who has inspired a large community with his famous Endzone Tournament and series Everafter. Truth is however that he is now in need of help, and although I can’t do much myself I can point you <a href="endling.deviantart.com/journal…>in the right direction best I can.

:iconendling: will be first off auctioning off some of his neat artwork so keep an eye out for more info on that in his journal.

:iconzombiesmile: is holding commissions for anyone who would like to help in exchange for some of her awesome artwork.

:iconcirihtt: is now also holding commissions to help the cause and has five slots currently open, so go there while you still can.

Here are some more artists who are helping the cause and are offering commissions as well.


:iconeffenndee::iconbaggy666::iconxthedarknesswithinx::icongaragos: :icondeadxcross::iconizuma::iconzackdafallenseraph::iconmr-tea-and-crumpets::iconcsujake::iconcubewatermelon::iconshadow-priestess::iconalamus::iconsins-of-angels: :icongloomynekochan: :icond-fox::iconsomegirlnamedjhenne::iconsenekha::iconbriikittee: :iconporcelainpoppies::iconkathrynlayno::iconcheckered-fedora: :iconblackharpygoddess::iconceltic--spirit::iconryuuen::iconkingjing::iconzarjamar::icondevilchicka: :icongreyflame::iconmoonblood-collab:


(for commissions, contact the artists themselves please. They will then send the money directly to Shaun's PP.)

And for anyone who wants to help out by just making a donations, you can do so via paypal to: endrealm@yahoo.com

Edit: removed the slots, tought I had a little extra time, no longer the case.

Well, not exactly leaving just going to disappear for a while.

I've been working on my list of unfinished projects and man, that's on long ass list. Truth is, I tend star something and always put things on hold when more important work comes around. Sadly, my freelance contract ended with the company I was working with and it's probably for the best because I honestly hated working for that place and the pay wasn't worth the amount of work that went into each piece. For those wondering, I was making some designs and illustrations for some coin-op games. Luckily, since I still have my day job, I'm still financially stable for the time being.

Okay, okay, enough about that, time to get down to business. I have all these projects to finish and since I'm easily distracted by anything and everything (Seriously, I really suck that way), I'm going to seclude myself from the world till I get everything on this list done:

I spent the whole weekend playing team fortress 2 on my computer non-stop for well over 8 hours each day. Now I'm too tired to think clearly at work and all I can think about is how to get back at those pyro characters. I drank two starbucks coffees and I'm barely awake, and this little troll doll keeps looking at me funny.

Okay, I know I haven’t lived up to what I said regarding updating TW but I wasn’t happy with what I was putting down on paper. It began feeling more of a chore and less fun as I worked on it so I put it on the side for a sec and  drew other things for a while I’ll upload here soon enough.

But enough time has passed and now I have to live up to what I said in my earlier Posts, Training Wheels is going to be updated and re-organized. I ain’t happy with many of the pages on the site and honestly even though there are few pages, I’m not happy with some of them (mostly form an artistic point of view), so I’m going to remove those I dislike and re-make them. I know some people are going to ask me why am I re-doing strips when I could be making a new one? Well simply put (and no offense) But it’s my comic and I can do as I please. And so I’ll be making new strips and artwork for the series this month and posting them on the site ASAP.


On a different topic, I joined the SDL like many others and now I have to make some art for Rod. And thanks to :iconstrifehell: for inviting me to join Hachiman who I hear is one of the coolest teams around. Now I got to learn to draw ancient Japan.

Also, I participated in an Infractus Fatality and lost the first round but regardless, met some awesome people in the chat-rooms as well as some great artists, here are some I recommend checking out:

:iconzeurel::iconekuneshiel::icondoodlesanddaydreams::iconprincessprince::iconkaitoiscool::iconwansworld::iconcirihtt::iconjoichiroll::icongaragos::iconconmandamned:

Anyways, right now I am in the process of moving so I’m going to be away for  a while and won’t be answering any messages for a couple of days but I’ll still post the comics on
The Training Wheels comic so keep an eye out next week, Night.
