Hello! Haven't written a journal entry for a while but figured I'd do a quick update as I have two big bits of news :)

The first is that I'm now working as Art Director at Axis, the studio behind the trailers for games like Destiny, Halo, Guild Wars 2, League of Legends and more. Having a blast there, can't wait to show you what we've been working on.

The second is that I'm now working on Magic the Gathering! This has been a life-long dream of mine, having played MTG since I was a kid, so I'm super excited and humbled.

I'm also moving flat soon and will have access to super fast internet so I will be streaming on Twitch. If you want to come watch me sketch, paint and do live portfolio critiques etc follow me here: www.twitch.tv/abigbat. I'm a lot more active on Twitter, so if you want more regular updates makes sure you follow abigbat too.

Hope you guys are doing awesome, keep following your dreams and all that <3

Pledge of the Fallen

"Offerings to Wardens old,
We pledge these virgin souls.
That you may take them 'neath the waves,
To kingdoms, deep and cold."

- Norric pledge.

New personal painting for a project I'm developing - having so much fun creating this world :) Hope you all like it.

Wizard Quest - Update

I spent an hour tweaking an old painting which I always quite liked in spite of it's technical issues.

Returning to something you were proud of and evaluating it with the benefit of experience is super helpful and good for the soul; seeing how far you've come both in terms of technical ability and thought process/planning is weirdly inspiring :) Definitely recommend doing this every now and then.

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 :)
