It's been forever since I uploaded something, so I figured I'd digitize one of my pencil scribbles I did at work. I felt like I was stagnating with my old style so I decided to take my style in a new direction with a more realistic proportions and whatnot, and I really think it's helped me improved. What do you think?

Dead Embers
Just a cover or something for the Slash (Now going by his birthname Clyde) backstory that will be a story in and of itself that will take place during the early events of the Caelite Chronicles.

I am an aspiring graphic novelist who happens to love Pokemon and Metal Gear a little too much.

I am 21 years old and I have a fair amount of experience in writing, inking, and coloring, but have not had any formal art training other than art classes in school and things akin to that. I used to draw a comic in spiral bound notebooks back in middle school and high school, the same story spanning many many notebooks from 6th to 12th grade that I wrote, designed the characters, and illustrated. However it was all in pen on lined paper, so no penciling or coloring was involved. But, after I graduated in 2011, I began work on a graphic novel series for publishers, but upon pitching the story to publishers, it was rejected because I lacked experience and they didn't want to invest in a whole series on a new comer. I did get about 70 pages of the first book of the series done, penciled and inked all by hand, before I decided it was best to move on to other things. After that I started a weekly webcomic, (but because of it's weekly release, the quality of the art fluctuated depending on how much free time I had that week) to establish some experience and that spanned from October of 2011 to February of 2013, drawn completely digitally. It ended abruptly because of my personal life, and I felt I needed to start working on actual graphic novels for publishing and that the webcomic was spanning too long and was keeping me from working on other things. I didn't want the story to be without an ending, so I removed the comic's website, but still have the whole thing on my computer. I have since begun work on a new graphic novel, also drawn completely digitally on my Yiynova USP19u.
So, in addition to all the artwork on deviantart that I have, I also have several hundred pages of previous comic book projects.
