Hello!

It's been a while since I've been super active here; working in games and freelancing on the side is pretty intense and devours most of your time. I am happy to report, however, that I have now made the jump to working freelance fulltime :) Honestly enjoying this so much, finally having time to work on my own projects as well as choosing my client work is the best feeling ever.

On that, I released the first painting in a new series the other day - you may have seen her:

Ariss the Eternal by abigbat

Ariss is just one of the Eternal Dragons I am working on for a project I'm developing, and the next one is due in a few weeks (I'm taking my time and getting them right). I really hope you like these, I'm super excited to be creating a world just for myself for a change; my decade of directing visuals for videogames was genuinely fantastic and I learned so much, but finally working for myself is really fulfilling.

Anyway, HI, good to be back, I hope you are well. Let me know what you're up to!

May the Fourth

And so it is, on this most holy of days, that we celebrate our Lord and Saviour, Jar Jar Binks; loyal companion, professional nonsense-spouter, definite Sith Lord.

Hello, I'm commenting to tell/ask you something. Months ago I was trying to find an avatar image for an account I have on a fanfiction site. I looked for nighttime images since I love how things look at night, and I found one on a site I no longer remember anything about. I decided to look for it again today just in case there might be any sort of problem with my use of it, and I also was curious. I found it again, and discovered it here on DeviantArt, your Moors at Night picture. I'm asking, as I did with the other two artists here that I used images from, do you mind me using that picture, since I'll gladly take it down if you do, though I think the picture is beautiful and I really do like to have a good picture instead of just a placeholder.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I completely adore your work and it has inspired me to get out of a three week art slump, thank you so much for sharing it here so we could all see it, a wonderful gallery showing the kind of great concept work I hope to do myself one day. Many pardons for spam faving most of your gallery as well. Work from you and others like you is what makes my days full of hope and color.
Best regards - Aquatics

Hey I'm so glad! Any time you get into a slump just focus on studies - portraits, landscapes or better yet master studies! Just studying someone's work and trying to replicate their strokes can teach you a ton and provide loads of inspiration :)
