I have been staring at this plan sporadically for the last few hours, trying to make heads and tails of this intricate drawing which is...

Welp. Things didn't exactly go as I planned them at the start of this year, but I'm certainly not complaining...

In case you were wondering where I disappeared, fret not, I haven't abandoned drawing or DA - in fact I have been very busy working.

The main job was a massive urbanism project which took a few months to complete and which will never be posted on DA for obvious reasons, but I've also done a lot of drawings for different clients, chief amid which is Mythopoeia. Now, I've done work for them before, chiefly this poster (and other assorted bits and bobs) for the second and third issue of their dieselpunk comic book "Skies of Fire", but whereas before I was an "external collaborator" now I've been asked to become a full member of the team and contribute more to the development of the world the comic is set in.

As such, I did a lot of "behind the scenes" design work and I will be posting some of it to DA over the next few days in a dedicated gallery.

I will also be posting other work I did in the meantime, as well as some new drawings for Shadowless and Inner Space, even though I didn't have enough time to draw actual comic pages.

And, as usual by now in my last few journal entries, here's a link back to the article about those little art thieves from "I. Světová" ("1st World [War]"), the WW1 special edition of the regular "Extra VÁLKA" ("Extra WAR"), published by EXTRA Publishing who decided it was far easier to just steal drawings than pay for them and when asked about it answered something to the lines of "we can't check all the sources for articles people write and we publish, so it's not our problem".

I'm really never going to stop trying to blacken their name, because they fully deserve it.

Just saw that Imperial Skies, complete with your super-swick artwork, is up on Kickstarter!  Will I be supporting it?  Why yes, I will.  I know none of the money goes to you at this point, but still.  Point of pride, and a job well done!
wingsofwrath Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! I really did a lot of artwork for Imperial Skies and I'm quite proud of it, so, by all means, support the game if you find it interesting!

 And I do think some of the money raised will eventually get to me anyway, because this isn't the only project Robin is doing and he just asked me to provide artwork for them as well.

I like the style of a lot of your stuff in general.  Reminds me of some of more colourful history books or even in some cases something you find in Osprey Books.
wingsofwrath Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! Some of my drawings are indeed for non-fiction history magazines, so the Osprey comparison is apt, especially since I grew up with a lot of their stuff. Glad you like my work!

After going through your awesome "Inner Space" artwork for the Nth time, I really have to ask; Is there a comic/book you have made about it that I have just missed the link to?
I am really interested in the stuff you have shown.
wingsofwrath Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, it is going to be a comic book, but right now it's still very much at the advanced concept stage. I know roughly what the story is going to be, but I'm still trying to work out what the world looks like. What gets posted to DA is only the tip of the iceberg - for every drawing I post there are 10-15 that stay in my sketchbooks, but it is getting there, if somewhat slower than I'd like.

Also, I am occasionally switching gears between working on Inner Space and working on Shadowless, which is on a much more advanced stage - both the concept and stories are pretty much done and I need to get around to drawing actual pages, but real world intervened with a really crappy 2014 and 2015 which left me scrambling from one crisis to the next on top of my day job which already takes waaay too much of my time.
The latest crisis was last week when I had to replace both my computer and smartphone a few days the one from the other...

So yeah, I'm sorry it's taking so long, but please bear with me. I'm sure the result will be worth the wait.
