Goliath and Demona: Raising the Beast. by NemoNova
Goliath and Demona: Raising the Beast.
This was a very complicated relationship to wrap my head around as a kid. It was one of the first things to break my idiot fairytale understanding of the world. What is amazing is that it came from Disney! They are where idiot fairytale understandings come from!

I remember them fighting several times, but I can't remember Goliath striking her. He definitely grabbed her a lot, yelled etc... which was all done in the name of Animal passion, but I never remember him crossing the line so :thumbsup: 

Anyway, this is another print for the Fan Expo. I hope some of you will be there and see Deanna and I at our table. I also hope this sells well and doesn't offend anyone, but if it does I'm not really sorry. 

Cheers, Mates!

LinkPool V2. by NemoNova
LinkPool V2.
So this is alternate version to the original: LinkPool. by NemoNova.

This pic is wildly popular at the conventions and so I decided to make it even better... I hope that doesn't backfire. 
            Let me know what you think about the changes :D

Eat...You...Whole... by NemoNova
Eat...You...Whole...
Another Print made for sale at the coming Fan Expo here in Toronto. I have to be honest, I haven't heard from the organizers and neither have a lot of the other artists that have applied. I am wondering if I have a table at all. We are about two weeks away and no floor plan has been announced. 

Perhaps it is something about which to worry...?     NAH, not my style.

Anywho, this is for all the Witcher fans along side me.

I still haven't finished the damn game. It's sooo long it's painful, but I think I have only myself to blame since I'm trying to 100% it. 

---Much Love

Mutual Assured Destruction: Sentry v. Dr.Manhattan by NemoNova
Mutual Assured Destruction: Sentry v. Dr.Manhattan
These two characters really impressed me with their power levels + their struggle to understand and control them. I think this will be a popular print at the coming Fan Expo. 

So.... Any bets?

I've seen plenty of pics concerning Sentry vs. Superman, but it makes more sense to me to put him against Dr.Manhattan. He's much more powerful than Superman, anyway.
       These two seem more even leveled to me.

Hey guys :).

It's been awhile since my last journal entry, but if you've been reading the writing beneath my deviations you should have a good idea as to my state of affairs. I wanna go over some thoughts in my head and update my watchers/friends. Maybe something here will get a dialogue going.

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts. 

So my last journal entry was a couple of months ago and a lot has changed. I grew apprehensive of the machinist position I earned. I was almost injured several times by the carelessness of my colleagues. The management [ and I use the term loosely] completely ignored these events. The clear measures which would increase safety were not taken, and I was literally fearing for my life. Some other workers were not as lucky. No fatalities, but several injuries were incurred. As such, I now work as an Undertaker for a leading funeral services provider here in Canada.

I've done work for dozens of funeral homes in the Greater Toronto Area, as well as various bodies of law enforcement and the Coroner's office itself. For the sake of brevity I'll just say that, along with many other responsibilities, I've conducted body removals, assisted in embalming, packaging, shipping and the internment of countless departed. I've even made the news a couple of times for the more uncanny passings. All of this is pretty exciting for me and I awake at the beginning of a new day genuinely proud of what I do, because for a long time I carried a shame in me that I hid. 

I never spoke of it before, but I want to address it. A lot of creators know how selfish "making" can be. The dungeons we seal ourselves in are our fortresses of solitude and a lot of us didn't really fit in "out there" to begin with. Most theorize that it is that very same ostracism buying us time which makes our abilities possible, but who do they help? Most of the time it's not good for us either! Being an artist is not the most lucrative field, with extremely few of us being able to survive on art alone, saying nothing of prospering to the point of acquiring a car, a descent house, supporting a family etc... Honestly, it's probably easier to become a doctor, or a lawyer. I enjoyed doing my work while the others in my family were working hard, hating it, and earning more than I. A few years ago I realized that they were beginning to resent supporting me and/or my not carrying an equal share of life's financial burden.  

It was regular white and no-collar jobs that got me my car, apartment, super computer, sweet phone etc... and all the same things for my girlfriend, who I love very much. Her standard of living is very important to me, and most days I just try to do what I can to make her, my mom's and my cat's life easier. When I was younger I thought mostly of myself, snapping at anyone who disrespected me, but now I'm a lot less concerned with myself. Maybe that's what changes when you become a man: you take responsibility, love your family and friends and provide as hard as you can.  

I've been lucky, or maybe I worked for it -- I don't know--  but I was able to support myself, my girlfriend and my cat on art alone for a couple of months, but it was damn hard; my bank account over-drafted on a regular basis as I was "living the dream." Funeral services makes money a non-issue, and I am free to do art, which I love, the way I want, instead of feeling like a dancing monkey doing ridiculous work out of desperation. Now I pick the interesting jobs, and reject the rest.        

Would I be happier if I was making the same money doing art instead? Honestly, probably not, because I want almost total creative control, as not all creators are destined for the studio [I've been working on a certain  project for over a year now and am soon to release it]. 

I don't mean to sound disheartening. If you're young, have the support, time and money to develop, then go right ahead and go for the studio job. Maybe you'll be happiest if you achieve greatness. I just hope that you don't have to sacrifice things like the greatness of family and life experiences. Drawing in that cubical, or home office could work for you, but please develop other skills. Don't be useless. Work for something/someone besides your own ego and gratification. All functioning people have to know to cook, clean, physically work and care for others. These things, plus your art, will make you high a value person who is worthy of love from others and yourself. 

*Be excellent to each other.

Just want to say you've got some awesome artwork, man. Especially love your command of anatomical nuance and detail, it adds a really interesting degree of realism to your work. As others have said, your tutorials on the subject are super helpful, much more so than any anatomy books I've read!

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. 

Sorry for the late reply. My day job takes up a lot of my time, but continuing these tutorials is important to me. 

I think Delavier's Strength Training Anatomy books are the best in the biz. Have you read any of them?

I would like to congratulate for you beautiful artwork, and thank you for the tutorial series. I was amazed to see that you used the classical approach and terminology in a very simple and instructive manner. Many many many thanks, because it is really helpfull for the begginer. Everyone should stop at your series and study. Suggestion: you could make a book (or an paid app, maybe) from them.
Best regards,
Regis

Thanks for your kind words. I was thinking about releasing it all as a book. Don't know whether that should be done through kickstarter, or through a publisher. I've never done it before. It's a plan of mine fore sure, but I gotta finish the 5+ tutorials I'm working on now before that can see that light of day.

Thanks again. 

Keeping it all accessible, while still having the correct terminology was definitely my approach from the start. Thanks for letting me know that it's working.
