How a game developer saved my lifeAfter disappearing for a very long while, halting commissions and delaying the creation of OFF-WHITE; I think I owe you guys an explanation.
At the beginning of August I found myself at a hospital, diagnosed with gallstones. The only effective way of getting rid of them is to remove the whole gallbladder altogether. Unfortunately it quickly got much  worse.  I got a severe case of cholecystitis and developed a hydrocele. It was suspected that the inflammation started to spread to my  peritoneum and liver. Even more unfortunately it didn't stop there. During all the medical examination I went through during the next few weeks it was discovered that everything was in fact caused by gallbladder cancer, which before was wrongly identified as inflamed tissue.
You can probably imagine how devastated I was after getting the news - after weeks of pain I got to know that I had cancer with extremely poor prognosis and had absolutely no money for a surgery.
Desperate I turned to my

This journal gives me so much hope I can't even fathom it.

Seriously guys. I know I go on about CD Projekt Red and the (fantastic) games they make, and how it's my life goal and everything to work for them... blah... blah...

They are a true gem amongst a desert landscape of good AAA developers. Not just because they make good games, but because they do stuff like the above example. There is a high moral code there that is sadly unmatched.

.........................................................................................................................................
If you would like to support them The Witcher 1&2 is pretty cheap these days (like under £5 in a sale).
Also there's GOG.com which has a load of classic games from your childhood working on recent OSs such as Windows 7. You get like 8 games and 2 movies free just for signing up.
I know its a lot of trust to put into a developer these days, but you could also pre-order The Witcher 3
.........................................................................................................................................

I'm aware this sounds like advertising, but as I said this company means a lot to me. Though they are raising awareness of their existence with The Witcher 3 they are still fairly underground.


Also OFF-WHITE is a really REALLY good online comic, if you wanted to support the artist who wrote that journal: off-white.eu/comic/prologue-pa…

Currently live-streaming. Duel monitor still hasn't been set up yet but we'll manage.

EDIT:
Decided to not stream again tonight as it got too late, and I was tired. Will carry on tomorrow.

Want to make some real progress on that painting of Haraldur and Curse. Mainly working on the Curse side of things.

Hope to see you there. :)

EDIT: Taking a break due to rats' vet appointment. Stay tuned for updates.
..............................................................

EDIT: Continuing the piece from yesterday.
On to colouring and refining line art.

Also just want to say quality of streams will be improved from tomorrow onwards. (Though I doubt I'll actually stream tomorrow). This is due to me moving house and getting my dual screen set up again, alongside fibre optic broadband.
..............................................................


Not the painting this time, but Haraldur done up as a Lord. Very early stages at the mo (Which tbh I find the most interesting part :P)

EDIT: Does anybody know how to delete collections from your profile and rearrange things so I can have my art on the left hand side again, and my DA ID back at the top right?
..........................................................................................................................................................................................
EDIT: Found the browse tab but my profile looks nasty now. Everything is so large and eww-y. Even on my big monitor it is not big enough.
..........................................................................................................................................................................................
I leave DA for 2 weeks to focus on life and work (no PC). I come back and..... its so ugly!
Why is DA Facebook now? Why is everything huge? Why do I have to scroll through one picture at a time to get to ones I want to see?

Who's idea was this hideousness?
It looks like a mobile app!

Has drawn all my life. I am particularly partial to my 0.5HB mechanical pencil, but am transferring to digital art with the aid of Photoshop CS5 and Wacom Cintiq24HD.
I have been serious about becoming a concept artist / Illustrator since I was 8.
I am currently attending the VFX: Visual Effects and Concept Designs degree course at Staffordshire University.

Due to health issues I've had to have an extension on my final semester until January.
