Funky Fresh new content, hmmmmmm

Hey everyone! 
Hope you're all doing real swell. Just dropping by with some projects I've recently dropped since I last did a blog post! I still have several bits and pieces I still can't reveal to the public until they get green-lit by my clients, but Once I do they'll be starring in my next post with all the saucy details! Speaking of sauce, lets dive into the latest illustrations why don't we?

Album Art Projects

Cover art for A-Dub da prodigy's new song 'I got sauce' ft. Jxmmy Watts. Fun, quick project to work on focusing on some character design work inspired by the 'Homies' Figures.

PHOENIX: Rising From the Ashes Vol. 1 ~ Album artwork created for DJ-Lexx Smith & DJ Milk As with each project I always find an area of the artwork i need to do, where i can really push a skill the furthest. With this one I focused on hand painting the flames to bring a more realistic feel to my usually line-heavy artwork. Also using white line-work on the phoenix itself was an experiment to add to its 'glowing' look, and worked out even better than i expected.

YouTube Content

For the 20th anniversary of the legendary classic JRPG Chrono Trigger, I decided to undertake a challenge: to create a tribute illustration that basically summarized the entire game in one giant poster.
A sit down retrospective review done by myself and partner in crime, Andy, this is the fourth in our in-depth look at the Final Fantasy series with FINAL FANTASY IV... .pretty much look at every incarnation of that classic, yes all 998 of them.

In this weeks 20th special VIDEO episode, me and Andy return after yet another long hiatus to bring a conclusion to our buildup of long awaited games POKEMON SUN AND MOON, FINAL FANTASY XV and KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 and our experiences playing them. 
We also talk about a few other games, including horizon dawn!
We also set a precedent in the series, replacing our usual features for a visual commentary over that delicate little flower THE TOWN WITH NO NAME... a game so classic, we didn't play it but watched it instead. So you get to see our ill-contained reactions to such a gem in the second half.

In this weeks 21st episode, me and Andy launch into our E3 Predictions with games we're both expecting and would love to see debut at the show... even the ones that are a bit of a stretch. 
Talking about the recent Dynasty Warriors 9 reveal, possible Dragon Quest 11 news on international release, Final Fantasy 16? and a whole host of other wild guesses. 
We wrap things up with a mighty return of ANDY'S 60 SECOND SCRAMBLE, where Andy summarises/reviews a 'classic' game in 60 seconds; this weeks being that cold hearted gem, PRIMAL RAGE.

As usual I'm really in the middle of my usual plate-spinning that is running Danji's Designs; Book Writing, Funding for that and new art equipment, Selling art at conventions and stocking up on new art for that (probably next year ), my YouTube Channel and the Network of Awesome Showcases and expansion. As you can expect I'm rather exhausted x_x but it will all be worth it in the end, as I set the bar the highest in bringing my art and creative endeavours to you, you beautiful people.

Watch this space!
