Thank you for visiting my page! Please sit back and enjoy a digital cup of tea :tea:

I specialize in comic book art, illustration, concept development and world building in both digital and traditional. I have exhibited my art online for 15 years and am privileged to have met many creative people! Born in Jamaica W.I., I currently live in the U.S. where I work full time while working on personal art projects. My favorite character is Sonic the Hedgehog and my other influences are Zelda, Studio Ghibli, Disney, Final Fantasy, old 80s anime, real life, and other random influences.

Hello fellow Deviants!  I hope everyone has been well.  I have to really thank everyone for their good will.  It makes my heart swell. I've been working on some things in RL and finishing up some commission orders.  Just trying to stay productive and keep the stress at bay. Sometimes the pen feels heavy because of everything around me but with God's help, I am pushing through.  I can't afford to give up on this calling.  Prayers are much appreciated, particularly for sustaining peace, wisdom and open doors. I particularly feel a weight concerning Caige... sometimes I wonder if this will ever materialize, but I know this feeling is just momentary discouragement. :-)

I already have a bunch of new thumbnails for Operation SQ and I have to thank my patrons for their kind support and encouragement. If you would like to help make this comic happen faster and at better quality, please feel free to support or share links. www.patreon.com/risenart?ty=h

By the way, just curious.  For those of you familiar with Netraptor Sonic Fanfiction, www.fanfiction.net/u/4191/NetR… if I were to do another comic adapt, which story would you like to see in comic form?

"He who loves his life loses it, but he who hates his life in this world will keep it safe right on into eternal life!" (John 12:25).

We can't hold on too tight to the things and expectations of the world otherwise we will be controlled by the fear of losing them.

The fear of Adonai leads to life; one who has it is satisfied and rests untouched by evil (Proverbs 19:23).

    1.      How long have you been on DeviantArt?
             Since 2004!

    2.      What does your username mean?
             It's just a nickname a schoolmate called me in high school.

    3.      Describe yourself in three words.
             Cautious, polite, neurotic.

    4.      Are you left or right handed?
             Righty but it would be cool to be ambidextrous.

    5.      What was your first deviation?
              Triple Threat Rugby by Tazi-san
              And I have to admit it's aged pretty well IMO

    6.      What is your favourite type of art to create?
              Fun and touching pieces like the one above; things that have a narrative in general since I am a more story-driven artist.

    7.      If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
             A more painterly form of digital art, otherwise, totally sculpture.

    8.      What was your first favourite?
             Marry me by NetRaptor

    9.      What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
             Art that represents things that I admire, like and care about. That would mean things from my favorite fandoms like Sonic (obviously), things having to do with truth, faith, life and things that bring hope.

    10.  Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
           Don't you make me choose... but you'll notice all of them have some kind of epic narrative going on to give life to their unique styles.       
            :iconmichelay::iconnetraptor::icontigerfog::icontracyjb::iconmavet::iconjayaxer::iconnbvega::icondarkspeeds::iconglitcher:

    11.  If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
           All of the above. But I'm kind of shy... I already know Michelay in RL though so that helps.

    12.  How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
           Michelay encouraged me to take my gift seriously and to have the faith to back it up. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't listen. Netraptor has been a long time inspiration because she believes in writing epics that prove you can make amazing works while coming from a Christ-centered perspective. She's also warned and spoke truth to me that has helped to protect me. Like Mish, NR can write AND draw and boy do I envy that! MaveT is also inspirational in how she is not afraid to tell the tough stories but also from faith. She faithfully plugs away at her comics and I always squee for the next page. NBVega is a brilliant writer who just gives me so much art fuel with his powerful and moving style and man I hope he gets to develop his drawing more. Glitcher, Tracy, Tigerfog, Axer, Darkspeeds... their art is just beautiful and technically inspired me over the years.  They are a standard that I return to and learn from but I would say my TOP favourite artist is Patrick Spaziante, who did comic book covers for the Archie Sonic comic.  Too bad he isn't a deviant!

    13.  What are your preferred tools to create art?
          Photoshop CC, colour pencils, water colour, micron and felt tip pens.

    14.  What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
           At my friend's house, at my house in the dead of night, and wherever other people are also being creative. One of my life goals is to have my own studio space so I can leave it as trashy as I want!=D

    15.  What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
            The precious conversations and feedback I get on DA... Also having the chance to encourage others and share that Someone up above loves them with an everlasting love. That their gifts are important and special and worth sharpening and cultivating.

One for the sketch pad.

Just so you know, Dust an Elysian Tail... I LOVE that game.  I have it on PC.

This is Dust, the main character you play as. He's VERY cool and has a unique color scheme and design.

:rofl: That's great!

The dinos are Netraptor's fault.  She's is an absolute dino-phile and it got contagious. Learning how to draw them also helped my dragons.  I would just need to get on board with a story that gives me more excuse to draw them.

Thank you for your kind comments and the fave! Especially coming from yet another skilled artist such as yourself.  It just reminds me of how DA is such a jackpot.
