I am just pumping these out! *pats self on back* I haven't had this much energy in a long time, wheee! Anyway, this was a commission for rincor.deviantart.com of a personal character. Why do all of my boys have such womanly faces? I wonder if I should work on changing that... but to be honest, I kind of like it! Pretty boys will always have a special place in my heart. A special place between rainbows and unicorns. lol.
I suppose I should update on my work life, Infinite Ammo hasn't decided to make any public announcements, save a few passive aggressive comments by someone, but I am no longer working with the team. For the past 5 months I have slowly been losing faith, every couple months one individual sees fit to choose someone he dislikes and treat them like crap. From blatantly ignoring that person's existence, to name calling, to passive aggressive remarks while pretending to help "solve problems". I have had enough of it, I didn't want to leave during production of Heroes and Villains because I didn't want to leave a project half way through, I wasn't about to screw people over, if they needed my help I would give it, but after I needed a break. However, I was taken off Heroes and Villains, our team "leader" decided to send an e-mail to a different team member so they could tell me.
I feel relieved. I am no stranger to hard work, I started my illustration career at 14 and have busted my ass working my way up, it is not work that wears me down, it is nonsensical drama. Right now I am ecstatic, there are so many things I'd like to do, an animated short, a graphic novel, art books, gallery shows, the possibilities are endless and I feel invigorated thinking about it.
In fact I have a personal project currently developing itself inside my head right now, I will post more this week as I start to flesh it out in the physical realm. I am very excited! Lets hope this one doesn't get lost in a hard drive crash <3
Also I'd like to say working with Volta Concept art studios has been stupid fun, I love working with them. I am constantly tempted to drag Ian to Quebec so I can work fulltime there. Though I'm always tempted to apply at big wonderful artsy studios... but being an independent artist is so much more convenient.
