After lots of putting it off, and struggling with themes, my new website is finally finished! It contains lots of University work that never got posted up on here, so I heartily encourage you to check it out! If you hover over the ‘Portfolio’ tab a series of sub-menus will appear that will take you to whatever artwork you wish to view, whether it be comics, children’s illustrations, or fan art – many of which I’ve yet to post on here – be sure when scrolling down through the pages you give the theme time to load up all the images
There are links to the facebook page and twitter page (to which I’ve relinquished control over to the site’s mascot; Cosmo Cat – be sure to follow him for arty updates from myself, and other artists I follow) as well as links to my deviantART, Instagram and of course, right here at Q.U.A.R.C.S! I’d like to thank all of you who have ‘followed’ me from when I started this blog back in 2009, your support and encouragement has been a great motivator so far, and any love for these new site’s would be gratefully received!
Having a bit of a catch-up session on birthday cards and the like that were missed during the craziness of the final year of University. Luckily for me I have family and a girlfriend that are not only a pleasure to draw freebies for, but are understanding enough to realise that their pictures may have to take a SLIGHT backseat while more pressing matters are taken care of – love you guys 🙂
First up is a piece for Fathers Day 2012, inspired by a lengthy co-op sesh on Halo ODST with my Pa – Dad loves Halo, and has been known on many occasion to say “Right, I should have time to shoot some aliens AND do the hoovering before your mother gets back” followed shortly by an adventure in ear-ache with Mum and The Unhoovered Floor 😛
One of the useful features on Halo ODST are the little smiley markers that show you where your teammates should be (or what’s left of them at any rate) but I discovered pretty quickly that Dad liked to carve his own path of destruction – markers be damned – and usually ended up right in the thick of it, while I was far too far away to lend a hand. This reckless ‘F**k Yeah, Explosions!’ attitude reminded me of internet legend Leeroy Jenkins, so I thought I’d do a piece as tribute to them both…
