Sketchoholic Entry

Well I recently stumbled upon, which is super neat I have to say. The basic idea is that artists come together and are given a topic daily to sketch and then submit to this forum. Then artists vote for which they like the best out of the anonymous entries and once voting is completed the winner receives a prize. Which from what I can tell is usually a sketch from Bobby Chiu. All I can say is I am SUPER excited about this. The prize is very cool but the idea and how they work is even better and gives me another way to practice. Any other artists that are already on there or think they might join in on the fun, let me know! I'll add you to my friends list there.

Anyway, this is the sketch entry I submitted for my first time on there. Which the topic was "Singing". I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I did things a little different this time around and combined my sketch with the painting style I usually do.

Halloween Wallpaper

I made you all a Halloween themed wallpaper! It's currently formatted for 1920x1200 screens. But if you all would like other sizes just let me know in the comments or via my contact form and I'll update with more versions. For now though I am giving you two other options which include a version with "Happy Halloween" and one without. Hopefully you all enjoy him, I personally keep cracking up with him as my wallpaper staring at me.

DA Damuro Test

I recently started also posting up my work on DA, but this is still going to be the main place I'd like to showcase my work. But deviantART will be another hub more people can find me at if they choose. I'm slowly uploading my stuff on there as well, BUT I had previously heard that they had made an oekaki like online art tool where you can digitally paint right there on the site and then upload it to your DA account.

So, I obviously HAD to try it out. Overall I'm pretty impressed with it, it's like a bare essentials photoshop or oekaki on steroids. The only problem I had was once I started adding more than three layers and coloring it began to majorly lag. So I only got this far in the sketch. Next time I go to use it I'll clear my cache and see if it makes things any better. For now though, you get this update and I am heading to bed! Enjoy! :D

Underwater Wallpaper

Well I finally finished the underwater wallpaper gift for my friend David. This is also probably going to be a large image heavy post so I can show you all the progress pictures and what was put in, taken out, and how it built itself up over time. I know a lot of people find that interesting, at least I do so I hope you all enjoy it!

Oh and the last one is the finished piece. :) Also if you haven't seen the first post about this wallpaper the link to the progress picture before these is located here.
