Makpal Abdrazakova, the only female eagle hunter in Kazakhstan.
Kickin’ ass and lookin’ fine.
I just googled this woman. Apparently she is also training to be a lawyer! I suppose hunting with a live eagle while looking utterly gorgeous is just not enough accomplishment for her.
Paul Richards here made a cool photoshop document that would reveal a complement of your color after using the paint bucket tool on a layer. It also shows various cool and warm tones of that color.
I’ve been having fun with it. Coloring my value sketches and such.
Oh my god this is one of the most useful palette tools I’ve seen.
Holy crap this is amazing
Batter art by mortis ghost
Gesture sketches from the Friday night drink and draw at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live. The convention is an absolute blast, bringing together some of the most talented illustrators, fresh up-and-comers, art directors, art fans, and all-around friendly folk to The Kansas City Convention Center. It was great meeting old acquaintances, my heroes, and internet friends who became real-world friends. I got a good bit of sketching and note-taking under my belt, as well as a whole lot of swag, not too dissimilar from my buddy John here.
If you haven’t attended Spectrum yet, it’s well worth the $40 weekend admission and then some.

If Earth Had Rings
First off, they would be really pretty to look at. They would also dominate the sky in both night and day at exactly the same place as they would never rise nor set. And at night you would see the Earth’s shadow swing across the rings, like in the 4th photo here.
However, life would be very different on Earth if this were the case. Nocturnal animals would have a hard time being nocturnal, as the light reflecting from the rings would illuminate the night.
Because we are closer to the Sun than Saturn is, the rings would be more rocky than ice, making them less bright but still pretty bright. In fact, you would see far less stars at night (living anywhere other than the equator or the arctic circle) because of the light pollution and not to mention ruin most meteor showers because of that.
During the day the rings would block sunlight in certain regions of the planet creating wild weather cycles and effecting plant life as well. So basically, they would be definitely pretty to look at but they would also make a whole lot of things screwy.

Green Lantern #4 Variant cover process. Pretty standard process that I do as seen in my Flash cover process
I added a few cool paint splatter digitally just in case it didn’t work. I did this by using a scan of a page that just had ink splatter all over it. I then adjusted the colors on it and applied it on top of the finished art.
I also had other options for my editors to choose from, that had more red and blood splatter. We decided that the clean white background worked best.
Hot damn this is awesome.
I won’t be denied this variant!

175 Paper Stars strung in 10 sets of 10, and 5 sets of 15,
All made from a shitty book I didn’t even like.
