H'okay, been a while since I've done one of these.  Life's mostly been work 24-7 with doodling in-between.  I was moved from DMO to working on Darksiders 2 at work a while ago, which was sweet while it lasted.  Unfortunately last week THQ did a number on us at Vigil and laid off most of the studio, me included.  So!  Looks like it's back to freelancing and commissions until I can pick up another gig.   

To everyone whom I still owe a sketch commission: I'm going to offer you the chance to change your sketches over to the character studies I've been doing.
To everyone whom I owe a larger commission: I will be back to working on these once I get back to Austin.  

Once I get you guys finished I may open for commissions again to everybody else.

Aaand that's about it.  A few people have asked where they can find out more info about the Locks.  You can follow my worldbuilding tumblr if you want to keep up on information/story updates, sketch descriptions, and general shenanigans as well as view sketchdump images fullsize.  I also reblog any fanart I receive there because I love promoting the folks who take time to doodle for me.

Lastly go give this person some love because they're awesome:
Go away, Jeih by Tatchit

Stay cool guys!

Ouch... :(

Yeah, when game companies do lay-off's, they sure do it in bulk for some reason. Sorry to hear about that.

But with your level of skill, I bet you'll be able to find commissions in no time, right? :D

Best of luck on your freelancing!

Getting laid-off bites ass, but I'd love to commission you if you open up anytime soon!

I've always wanted to try to commission a Fu-Beast off you. A sort of fusion of my celtic salmon birth sign and my chinese zodiac year of the tiger. Throwing tiger + salmon together to make some whiskery, red/orange/white/black koi-carp-ish oriental/celtic Fu-Beast mashup to interpret at your discretion.

I hope you can find more secure money sources as soon as you need them, but let me know if you'd like to take a bash at this concept for some cash in the mean time :)

Best of luck!

So sorry about the layoff. :c My good friend's friend got laid off from THQ here in Arizona just a couple months ago, as well. Sucks!

I bought a sketch commission a while back, but I'm interested in the character studies!! Can I have an example to know what that includes? :'D Is it a sketch dump page of them like the Sardi page you did for Sky orrrr...? <3
