Tech DragonRider by TX-aster
Tech DragonRider
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'.
120 years Carlos Gomes Music Institute Medal by TX-aster
120 years Carlos Gomes Music Institute Medal
Sorry for the my long absence and almost broken promise of posting It this month. I had the pleasure and honor of projecting the 120th years anniversary commemorative medal for the oldest classic music school in Brazil, named after one of the greatest musicians to have ever been born here, Carlos Gomes (one of his most famous operas is Il Guarany, you can hear it here… ).

 The final result was overall nice, the building turned out great, although the face of Carlos Gomes was kind of messed up by the sculptor I can hardly complain for being granted this chance.

Special thanks to the Dr.Habib Faiha, whom without the medal could never be as good at it turned out to be if wasn't for his advises as consultant and expertise in commemorative medals.He also asked me to make a post stamp for the 100th commemoration of Gaspar Viana's birth, another grate name that saved thousands of lives as a great and brave doctor. I already finished this work, but it's predicted to come to public in october. The greatest honor this time is being with names such as Joe Bennet, asked to draw a graphic novel for the occasion (he's a famous comic artist, having under his belt works for both DC and Marvel and even making a comic for Alan Moore, and as a matter of fact lives in the same town as me). Can hardly wait to october and meet him in person (making sure to take my comic for him to sign =D )....

Again made intending to run in the monthly cubebrush competition. At least this time I'm only 3 days late. Well, it was fun never the less. Hope you enjoy it =]
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:

Rabisco1 by TX-aster
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.
