Shine inside out
Time flies when you do graphics. It has been almost half a year since I posted anything. I just want you to know, that I'm not dead, quite the opposite actually. Since the December 2016, I've been spending considerably more amount of time on perfecting my posters for the side job, which took it's toll on my "free time to paint my own stuff". I even abandoned some comissions, for which I have to apologize to certain people - I will get back on track soon though.

Now the good news - I'm quitting the side job in a month, so you can expect to see more of... well - me, from then on. It was valuable experience, I learned a lot about vector art by experimenting and focusing each month on a little bit different aspect of the poster. In fact, I used a lot of it right here, gradient colors, gradient precision shading and lighting, lot of Hard light effects, extra sparkles, abstract background and more - all greatly improving the visuals of the final result, at least I hope.

Now onto art - not much to say, I was really captivated by Rares new appeal in the last episode, shame she won't bring it to at least few upcoming ones... anyway - I needed a new wallpaper for Windows - Titanic Rarity from the October of the last year was getting a bit old. Feel free to do the same, I provided with the original resolution image, because art should serve us all and it should not be the other way around (membership stuff and so on). 
I don't write journals much, so this gotta be important, right? Right. 

Since I finished university and am currently unemployed, I need to put my time into getting job, rather than drawing commissions for fun. It's sad but that's life. There is a possible job on the horizon already, but even if I qualify, I cannot say how much time consuming it will be - first months will definitelly take a lot from me, so I just don't want you guys to wait half a year for commissions just because I have little time to attend them due to the job. And if it doesn't go well, I need to keep looking, which takes time and energy just as much. The people listed in the commission list are still a go, so don't think I bailed on ya'.

It's probably temporary, so don't worry too much. I'll reopen them once I ran out of requests, just so I have something to do in the spare time, but for now - it seems I'm gonna be busy for at least 50 days.

Again, I apologize and hope to be back really soon... and possibly finally with some new hardware :3

I'm just a person, who chose wrong school and would like to paint and animate stuff (ideally work in a game studio, like Moon Studio or something developing hand drawn graphics). SO currently, I'm a biomedical technician, and an engineer of biomedical and clinical devices, Czech technical university in Prague - yes, I'm from Czech Republic.

I roll with Wacom Intuos Pen Small since summer 2015, before that I dug vector graphics. I'd like to push my art to environments, such as forests and wild nature in general, but I started with characters and can definitelly do them too.

I specialize in crossovers of all kind, though lately I do MLP references, since I became heavily influenced last year, when I watched all of the show.

Commission info:


See one of my later journal entries (I don't really do new entries, so it should be quite on top). How it works - send me note via DA, what you want there, I'll consider it and write you back. I'll make sketch or sketches, depending on how many ideas I get and how much I can manage to do in my free time and send it or them to you via notes, to pick one. Once you select one, I'll work on it as soon as I get to it. At some point, I'll send you little preview, so you can see I did quite some work on it, ask for money on paypal and once I collect, I'll finish off the piece and send you the original image along with open data file (*.psd). I reserve right to post it in my gallery - I do embed dedications in the image and also in the title, so don't worry, you'll be mentioned ;)

Thank you all for your BD wishes. It means a lot knowing people still remember me, especially since I haven't really uploaded anything in almost half a year by now.

For that I have to apologize, since I got a job last November, I rarely found time and strength both to continue painting my own projects. On the occassions I did, I used it to do the work for my part time job (doing some posters and web for fitness community in Czech republic). 

The last "nail to the coffin" was my awesome decision to buy a new computer on a New Year. It sure helped a lot with the load on CPU and RAM usage troubles during painting huge canvases, but I found myself using those resources mostly for gaming. The initial excitement is, however, wearing off now, and as it fades, the inner need of putting myself out there again emerges. I see a comeback on the horizon :) Just a little longer and things will surely turn around for me.
