Lupain Heavy Striker by TX-aster
Lupain Heavy Striker
I found time to do something I've meant to do for long time. Here are the details of the concept air striker I've made for :iconshanethewolf: and his fiction at 2020A.D at :icon2020ad:

The concept was first made in this painting:…

Pieces of a Puzzle
I'm not dead yet! So lets at least post this illustration I'v made for work. I cropped out the text and marketing bit as I wanted to put only my illustration in.

The initial plan was for me to draw all feathers one by one, but time is a precious resource and Copy and Paste it was (I made over 10 of those until one got the approval, half were photo-manipulations and the other half illustrations... so I guess you can excuse me for that, right?).

These are all stuff and bits used to make an amazon native headdress. 

As this illustration was sold for commercial use, please do not use it in any way or else... actually I don't think I could stop anyone from being a jerk ;)

Finished this old one. I sketched it last year and finally decided I could make it work somehow. Took me just around 4 days (spaced in 3 weeks as I'm having a lot of work to do- and not the "fun" work). Hope you guys like it =)
(I'm trying to increase the number of female characters in my portfolio as you can see).

Just some stops in the painting process. The colors were made all in one day (easy as the foreground and background were in 2 layers) so I forgot making a 'in between step'.
I've been busy all over the year end at this point (as any normal human being you assume I am) I am dead tired. Not "bad" tired but... needing to do nothing for some time. The sad part is, It wont happen. This month in particular has been a particular draining one, financially and time consuming. I haven't got the time to cut my hair yet. CUT MY F*KING HAIR. I can use ponytail by now, and as my beard grew large if I dress accordingly I could pass as a Homeless man or a Drifter.

So many things, so little time... I don't like to complain -_- but Those are some of the reasons I had so little activity here in DA this end of year. And I REALY want to have time to dedicate my self into improving my paintings, I only hope next year I get some time to do things. 

And for any fellow devianrartist here I have to say, I am still painting and will finish and post my paintings as soon as I am able. But as I have roughly 1-3 hours per week for painting it's taking long for the paintings to come as I want them to be (perfectionist much?).

(Last night I had to take care of a clinically depressed teen cousin because he ended with his 1 month girlfriend, and had about 3 hours of sleep before waking up and have to work)

And here is something:

Just a random nice guy. Whenever I feel angst, sadness, anger, etc, I used to sketch some random creepy horror monster/scene. Needless to say I made some heavy sick drawings in my teens. (ballpen in the back of a print test wile my computer was loading).

And here is a Tiny little preview of my ongoing painting for
I ams sadly taking long to finish it but in hopes it turns out nicely.
