Heartless As The Grave Chapter 1
      As a plucky, rambunctious six year old, I still felt the world held infinite possibilities.  I was happy then.  I think Mom was happy enough, too, with it being just the two of us most of the time. She wasn’t much of a joiner, so we generally kept to ourselves and didn’t socialize much outside a friendly wave to a neighbor at the mailbox or some small talk over the produce at the grocery store with a nice lady who worked there.  We didn’t see my father much, but that was to be expected when your father was a vampire slayer.  Slayers were, technically, supposed to stay away from their loved ones to protect them, but Father could never stay away for too long.  No matter what, he always managed to see us a few times a year; especially for my birthday.
     That was why I especially looked forward to my birthday.  It wasn’t only the chocolate layer cake handmade with love by my mom.  It wasn

The Void
The pain was like a knife to my stomach, a tightness in my chest that refused to release its grip.  A cavernous void now existed in my heart where she used to be.  My whole world came crashing down in one horrific moment.  Nothing would ever be the same again.  The world no longer seemed to hold any joy at all.  
Everything was suddenly grey. No color.  No light.  Only an endless sea of longing for the thing I would never have again seemed to occupy my future.
That is what happens to you when your mother dies.  
Ripped from my life in the blink of an eye, I felt cheated.  How dare this happen to me?  Why does everyone else get to have their mom but me?  Never again would I feel her warm, comforting embrace.  Her voice would no longer ring out, bringing light and laughter into my life.  It wasn't fair!  To make matters worse, there was no one to blame.  I needed someone to blame.  I yearned for an outlet to

8 Tips for Composing Each Chapter of Your Novel
8 Tips for Composing Each Chapter of Your Novel
Anybody Can Write a Novel 2.0
Chapter 7 “Editing” – Section 1 “The Chapter”
“Many first-time novelists end up rewriting their first two or three chapters, trying to get them 'just right.' But the point of the first draft is not to get it right; it's to get it written - so that you'll have something to work with.”
-Matt Hughes  
Recently, we've been working on all of the plot-points contained within a story and what function they serve to the overall plot. And if you've been following along with the “Write-A-Novel” exercises, and written a chapter for every plot-point, you now have a completed first draft of your novel. Now, it is time to work on editing and redrafting

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics. 
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format. 
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditional tools.

I accidentally included an image in the wrong folder. Anybody know how I can remove it from said improper folder?
Da Vinci Cyborg
Just an idea I had.  I took some inspiration from Leonardo DaVinci's painting and put a futuristic/sci-fi spin on it.  Created with Corel Painter X.
Coloring Contest - Scarlett Aimpyh Mermaid
Found this coloring contest hosted by :iconscarlett-aimpyh: Here's the link to contest info: I thought I'd take some time to join in!  Challenge is to color her mermaid line art. Comic work has kept me quite busy lately, so it's nice to do something fun every now and then.  Colored with Corel Painter X.  Hope you like it!

Line art by :iconscarlett-aimpyh:
This started as just a warmup piece trying to practice with lighting and skin tones.  Not sure how much it looks like Moana, but I guess we'll juat call it my interpretation of her. ;) I painted this entirely with a hard edge round brush in Corel Painter X.  Hope you like it!

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Albion College (liberal arts Major: Biology, Minor: Art). While I don't have much practical experience where jobs are concerned, I have a lot of heart and drive to be better than what I am. My tools of the trade are pencils, a Wacom Intuos3, and Corel Painter X. It's hard for me to believe how far I've come in the past year, and the prospect of getting that much better next year makes me look forward to the passing of time.

Personal Quote: Tough Cookies
It's been quite a while since I did one of these.  Today, I'd like to feature a comic that I illustrated for :iconaltworld: about Mr. Button, the vengeful teddy bear.  Unhinged by the betrayal of his little boy, Mr. Button goes on a rampage against the monsters under the bed.  I really enjoyed working on this project and I hope you like it, too.  It isn't often that I get to do all the artwork!  Nick is trying to raise $500 to run this to print.  This is not padded, mind you, only what it'll take to get it printed.  And if he is successful, there will be more Cuddly Defender comics to come!  So please share and support Mr. Button!…

Thank you all for your support! :hug:

I'm also currently a colorist for Legacy Rising Publications on two titles, "Hotshot" and "Vigilance" so feel free to check out their Facebook page.  We're set to launch this July at Wizard World Columbus!…
