Samantha: a portrait for a friend.
Hey again. 

This beauty is Samantha. She is a great friend of my girlfriend and I here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I've been delaying this piece for a long time because there was always some project, convention, mural etc... to do, but I finally got home and spent an afternoon completing it. She hasn't seen it yet, but hopefully she will give it a thumbs up.

Some late night light testing. I had no model for this at all and decided to test my lighting abilities on the form. I think it turned out pretty well, but it took too long and several attempts in some areas= I still have work to do

. Looks like it's back to the reference for me.

This here is another portrait of the most wonderful person in my life: my darling girlfriend: Deanna Bradley :)

I'm doing a portrait of her for every year I am with her. This one is for the just completed year 3. I will now start work for year 4 which will be done in 3D! 

It took a long time for me to find her, but I say to you now that when you find someone as kind and cool as her that you hold on to him/her for as long as you can. Don't settle. Keep looking for the person that is right for you, that keeps you at your best and that, with time, you realize you love even more than yourself.

So finally my degree and long time experience as a factory grunt have been recognized... sigh...

I've been holding on financially by the skin of my teeth for awhile, but I've largely kept it to myself. Literally there have been some months where I've only been in the green by the little leftover change I've had in my hand and that's pretty scary when you're renting your own place and there are people relying on you to pay bills. The only things keeping me afloat were the patrons who had me do commissions and, to my shame, theft. 

Despite my practiced smile, and how I spoke earlier of the opportunity to tour several US Wizard Conventions with industry legend Kurt Lehner, I didn't mention how baffled I was as to how I was going to fund it. Yes, as you can imagine, this caused me great stress. 

Frankly, however, I didn't care and figured the opportunity was too great; I would go into debt happily for this. But serendipity has struck it would seem because now I don't have to (you may have noticed I was speaking in the past tense :D ).

In the past I've spent months looking, but this time it took only two days! I've landed well paying work as a machinist for a large company. They honor my years of experience as a factory man, as well as my degree in psychology with added clerical and possible administrative duties. In essence, the solution has presented itself with impeccable timing.

One day I'll be able to work as a full-time professional artist, and I am still calling that it will happen this year! In the meantime, however, I will labor roughly with my hands to earn a living and keep moving forward. I've never been intelligent and my math is horrid, but I know I've got great hands and they'll get me through :).

--> Wish me luck.

---> ---> Good luck to all of us.

Thank you for taking the time to make those awesome tutorials. It's always useful to see others approach to drawing and techniques!
NemoNova Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No problem. I gotta do a couple more for the head and face features, so stay tuned. 

    What should I start with? 
MadAlleyCat Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2014  Student Filmographer
What you feel most for I'd say.

You have some really nice art here. I especially like the tutorial section ;P
There is so much helpful informations ... it was pretty much the very first interesting tutorial literature I read and watched on Deviant Art. I really ejoyed the abdominal section :)
NemoNova Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
lol. Yeah, the tutorials are more liked than my actual work, sad to say. I'm glad people are taking a liking to them. The abdominal one is my fave so far as well, but I'm struggling with making the one for hands right now. I'm trying to come up with some advanced notes so that they are a bit more thorough than other tutorials, but there isn't too much to be said. Hands don't come easy unless you draw them thousands of times :S. Breaking it down into geometrics is a great start, but nothing beats the practice.   
Sonimul Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's so true - nothing beats the practice and this I need really much :)
Waiting for the hands tutorial, mate
