Even though I didn't realize time for getting a table to sell my artworks is gone, this Eirtakon I have just decided to chill in my Big Red Predator suit. Another reason not to get in the artist alley is I really didn't had time to make any new prints since all my times are taken by evening animation learning courses and college where I am working on an animated short along with other researching courses. 

Here are some of the shots from Eirtakon, hope you guys like this:

Stan Winstion Studio's 'Big Red' Mention

Such a great experience to see Stan Winston School of Character Arts mentioned Big Red Predator on their page and Sandy Collora commenting on it about his work. Heartiest thanks to everyone involved! Also I have crossed 12000 followers! I don't know how that helps but we are all having fun and that's all that matters! 8)

Half man, half machine... all cop.

Half man, half machine... all cop.

Was animating while listening to Robocop playing on the background. Ended up not doing animation but illustrating the cop. Enjoy! Need to get more variation on brushes if any improvement need to be done to this.

Lance Henriksen promotion and Business card for TCDJS

This is Lance Henriksen, the legend- the android from Aliens

It was a nice find that his facebook page has promoted my artworks, probably because of the Queen in it!

I mean, yeah maybe it's not him behind the page but it does mention it's his official page on facebook and linked to his twitter- but mostly it's the feedback that matters 8)! Thanks to the Big Dude, or which ever kind soul that shared the work for me to reach a greater audience 8).

Hope this is a sign that I am progressing after all. 8). cheers to all you folks 8).

Ah, almost forgot to mention I designed a business card for TCDJS- it's not my artwork but i gathered different images and edited them together and from the sound it looks like they liked it. So here it goes so for all your business card needs you know WHO YOU GONNA CALL! haha.
