I had a bad anxiety bout so I drew that motherfucker into submission. Sometimes I still gotta remind my head who’s boss.
Adore the style.
My heart can’t handle this I’m going to bed
THEY RESCUED THE KITTY AND HUGGED IT OH GOD
I will reblog this every time.
There are few things in life that can make me tear up almost instantly. Situations like these are one of them.
A fellow RISD friend Devon is the senior concept artist at Motiga and they are about to be releasing Gigantic, which looks like a whole basket of awesome. The character design and the whole visual layout just straight up wins all the points.
Check out Devon’s work here: Gorrem
And go to the Gigantic website and watch the video! It will make your brain melt.
THINGS THAT ARE SEVERELY COOL BUT MY COMPUTER WOULD DIE TRYING TO PLAY.
I’m not sure if I could actually play this game. I’d get too distracted by its beauty and just sorta sit there, staring at the screen in awe.
Nestlé backed up that statement with this ruthless move at the World Water Forum.
Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.
Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”
Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.
Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!
At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.
Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.
In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.
Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!

Part 2 for Zarith the badger on FA. His mate, Shady the Wolf, stands atop the blazing stair case, transfixed by a white figure at the bottom in a sort of reversal from a scene from Silent Hill 2. Had too much fun with this one. XD

Aaaand it looks like my next batch is already filled up with people from my wait list and others willing to pay ahead to secure a slot (which I will VERY RARELY allow). If this trend continues, I guess I’ll just have to open more slots. :\ As long as people are okay with waiting. I’m doing five slots right now because it’s just easier for me to manage with how slow I am. I’m trying to get faster.
Also, I’ve decided to clarify my pricing for my full color illustrations:
$80 is still the absolute flat rate. This includes a fully color, lineless character in the foreground of an image. Background will be indistinct or loosely detailed and simple. More like a full body portrait than a full-on illustration or scene. Added character complexity, more characters, and more elaborate backgrounds will result in a higher price. The more detailed a piece is, the more planning I have to do, which also affects price.
To give you an idea, an $80-$100 piece would look something like these->
A $100-$200 piece would be something like these ->
Note the level of detail, tightened coloring, and elaborateness of the backgrounds in the $100+ pieces. I’ve updated all the information on my tumblr as well.
Male and female werewolf concept art for Skyrim, by Adam Adamowicz.
These are kinda how I picture the werewolves from ‘The Last Werewolf’, actually. I love the fur texturing on them, but I never quite got the bare-abs-and-chest-on-furred-humanoids. Very nice studies, regardless. The world needs more monstrous female werewolves.
I just love how it looks like the artist put so much time and effort into this piece just so that the joke is that much funnier.
nope im not a fully grown adult sir, no sir
