Done for,
All the artists contributions can be seen here.

"My name is Daarken and I am a concept artist and illustrator working for Mythic Entertainment. My friend Leif Jeffers, an animator at DreamWorks, and I are organizing an art auction fundraiser that will be held next year. Earlier this year my girlfriend, Cat, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25. On November 3rd, 2009, she had a bilateral mastectomy after going through 16 weeks of chemotherapy. As you can imagine it has been hard for her, not only mentally and physically, but financially. In order to help alleviate some of her medical bills Leif and I wanted to throw an art auction. The proceeds that are left over after her medical bills have been paid will go to a breast cancer related charity to be determined by the artists in the coming weeks."

Mike and Cat are newly engaged. Please give them your support, spread the word and do what you can for the charity.

Please visit the website for upcoming information on the showing and auction.
In the meantime you can donate on the main-page here.

Mahvoh Capcom and a chibi

Another warmup gone too far. I love to fill a page until there's absolutely no room left for any other character-these sometimes look like collages. I kept returning to this page in between Darkstalkers pencils.  Before warmup sketchin I was lookin' through Joe Mad's Ultimates comic(pencils version) so if you recognize that Venom that's why ;)
The Venom in Black is probably also inspired by Mad's but drawn on another day.
 I did these Bishamon studies before I started pencilling the Darkstalkers pages.  I used a cheap bic pen Carmine Red, Light Blue and Blue Col Erase that I switched between for this page.  Kinda works since Bishamon is mainly those colours anyways.
Werewolf + ninja = pure awesomesauce of Talbain.
My good buddy Dax has been on a chibi kick-and it's infectious.
Once I started I couldn't stop-maybe they remind me of the old flour sack 
of Sheridan animation assignments back in the day?
Here's Viper in Chibi and Kawaii styles
"kawaii: An adjective in Japanese meaning " pretty; cute; lovely; charming; dear; darling; pet" It's stem is two kanji meaning "can love". It is commonly used by anime and manga fans."
(I didn't know this until a Deviant artist commented on my page)

fun stuff

Some Quick Stuff

Some sci-fi type stuff I've been fooling around with. I'm not really a sci-fi guy, but I have Mass Effect 2 on the brain right now.

so i took a swing at painter- i guess i would call this attempt a bunt. the brush mechanics are both fun and annoying.
