First off, this is a very deceptive piece that has plenty of complementary style, but has a lack of consistency. Let me explain. The li...

Viaggio Downpour by Muffyn-Man
Viaggio Downpour
Probably one of my worst photos, but I wanted to try out a night photo at least once with the phone. Didn't turn out as luminescent as I had hoped, but it turned out better than I expected.

Stained Bookshelf
Something about being in the middle of a dull grey winter and seeing an abandoned turquoise bookshelf at the edge of an alley really caught my eye. No filtering, but I did crop the shot a little bit. Hope you are all enjoying your winter. If not, just remember, Without January, nobody would enjoy May.

I know that I already uploaded the piece, but I wanted to show off the difference in scan as opposed to photo for this piece. Not to mention, I Always do added touchups on the final product with acrylic and some special effects to make it stand out in certain areas. I applied some phosphorescent paint to the clouds and the Aurora to glow in the dark, and some silver paint in the Aurora and sky to catch the eye when veiwed in the right light. Its these little touchups that I do for anyone who commissions me for a traditional piece, cause I really enjoy having something that no one else can truely duplicate when the final piece is sent out. 

That being said, It will probably be my last commission for a while since I have to get my life in order. I don't even think that I've done any real art this year that didn't involve someone telling me to do it. If it wasn't a commission or proposition from someone to make it, I couldn't find the time or motivation to do it. It's been a while since I announced that I was going to revisit a Celestia concept piece I've had in the back of my cranium, and There's been stories that I've wanted to at least put down on paper in one form or another. Not to mention, I'll be attempting a few life changes this year that include moving to a different state. I'll still be making art, but starting new until further notice, I have to go back to having my own thoughts.

Special thanks to :iconlapqmzla: for his continued patronage and those who still follow my work.

Man have I gotten rusty with Copics.

This is the 6th commission for :iconlapqmzla: and Its a pleasant return to copics, though I wish I had double checked my markers before jumping into this project. The rough sky coloring was a result of me not refilling some of my markers on time, but I kinda like the effect it had on the finished piece. Can someone tell me what the secret to scanning marker pieces? It never seems to really capture the color quite right, and it over exaggerates the texture of the paper.

-Plushberry and Blueberry belong to :iconlapqmzla:

Materials used: Copic Markers, Copic Multiliner, Neopiko Sepia pen on Bristol Board.

Stepped out to go to lunch from work when I took this natural masterpiece. What can I say, I'm a sucker for silouettes and John Avon style lighting. If you don't know who that is then do yourself a favor and look up his work. He's been in the Digital Arts industry for as long as Magic: The Gathering existed. So about early 90's. Everything he paints always has an etherial flare of light and I couldn't help, but compare this scene to his work when I looked up that day. 
That being said, I find that when the weather goes to shit, the sky has a tendancy to reward you with something along these lines. 
            Hey Everybody, got some exciting news to share with you all before I forget. I'll be showing art for an Anime themed art gallery in Midtown Sacramento this September on the 26th. It's going to be interesting what everyone else is showing in this gallery since I was referred by an old artist friend of mine, whom I barely keep in contact with. He reached out to me and how could I say no to that offer? How often does Anime ever get taken seriously enough to get turned into a gallery showing outside of a convention hall? Almost never! If it is, its always under the radar; ironically, much like this one.
            I'll be showing a couple of pieces that I have in my gallery from waaaaay back when I was still in college and didn't know that ponies could ever be a thing. Right now though, I'm working on a few pieces that I should blow you guys away. What I'm creating at the moment is based on my personal views on Anime as an art and an industry, and how it has changed in my eyes since I became fan of the medium when I was but a wee-little muffyn at 8 years of age. Anyway, If you can't make it out to Sacramento on Saturday, fear not. I'll be posting my new works on here, and possibly recording the event in some way to share with you all here. 
            To all who are reading this and still follow me, thank you for sticking around cause I've been dead in the water for a while until this project showed up. I've been working on animation, and trying to get a new job that can lead to a proper career for me. It really helps me to move forward with my artwork knowing that I could potentially create something that could connect with my viewers on a deeper level beyond some initial impressions. So even when I find that upgrade to my current job, I want the whole 50 or so of you to know that I will keep doing what I'm doing. Because I am, if nothing else, an artist.
