Would you guys like it if I posted some sketchdumps of work I haven't finished/shared?

21 deviants said Nah, not really, I just wanna see finished pieces and GBDNATE updates.
As I let on in my last journal before leaving for Comiccon Montreal, I've gone through an extremely rough patch. Some of the worst times in my life. I came very close to deleting all my online accounts permanently. And as much as I'd love to dive headlong into explaining the causes of it all, I simply can't.

That said, this isn't meant to be a pessimistic journal! No sir-ee! You see, while at Comiccon, I became conscious of a few things. One of them being that there's life outside my office (I know this is silly, but I've been cooped up in here for 2 years plugging away at gender bender) And the other one is that this rough patch I just went through isn't the end. There's more out there, more beyond. And that's what I'm writing about.

At comiccon I met loads of fantastic people. Game devs both AAA and indie, writers once again both AAA and indie, and loads of fantastic artists. And it was absolutely liberating. To see the breadth of content being worked on, the various styles, just... all of it. It was incredible. I even picked up a pile of books including a few I can't even read since they're not in English. When I got back from Comiccon I had the intent of deleting all these accounts, but not to vanish. To start over under a new alias. And I came extremely close to doing just that. But calmer heads prevailed. I've decided to stick with DKDevil. I've been using the name for over 8 years and honestly, I don't want to abandon it.

So I'm only a few days out from finishing all the art for Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme and I have a plan. As soon as my work is done on GBDNATE I'm going on a 2 month quasi-hiatus to improve my art. I've got loads of books, I've got live model drawing sessions starting up in September and I've been invited to an artist circle. Some of the art I've been doing on the side feels like such a step up from what I've got on here that I just want to keep pushing in that direction and the guys from the artist circle have been nothing short of insanely supportive and helpful. It's a new environment where I'm literally the runt of the litter, the one in most need of improvement, and instead of looking down on me like people do in so many environments, they're helping me out and giving me pointers. It's seriously intense and awesome.

So uhh... yeah, next Saturday's GBDNATE update post will probably (possibly?) be the last one I post. After that we're looking at periodic, artless(cept maybe screenshots) progress updates posted to indiegogo by Lach when anything important happens (character releases, major updates, etc).

Anyhow, yeah, free soon! :D

I look at your creations of chaos; then I look at the stuff in genderbender, and the gap in quality is so massive it's like it wasn't even made by the same person.

Aye, Gender Bender was quite literally my first foray into character art so it was pretty rough. I used to do concept art prior to it, mostly mechanical stuff. A few of the games I worked on back then will be coming out in the next year or so. XD

Well that's good to know, thanks for answering in such a mild-mannered fashion; a lot of people on this site are total hotheads.
