Happy New Year to one and all.

I recently received my 3rd rejection from 2000ad.  As soon as the self adressed envelope pops through the mail box you know that you've been rejected. I feel as though I'm becoming an old hand on the rejection front but at least they reply.

The reply letters are getting shorter. This time focused on my overloading of the panels with too much detail (fair comment) and lack of attention to anatomy (almost everyone can stand to improve on this, so again fair comment). They were kind enough to suggest I showed promise but this looks a bit like a cut and paste part of all the letters.

On the upside I got the Wacom digital pen and tablet for Christmas. So I'll be posting the results of my inking experiments in the near future.

Cheers for 2009 Tom

No problem dude and thanks for the comment! I know what you mean about 1 too many rejection letters. I gave up trying to draw for comicbooks to study animation. Also, I know what it is like to try to fit drawing in around a full time job but I always saw it as a release from the daily grind. Anyway, kick ass at whatever you are doing. Hope you are well!

Heya Tom, are you still drawing? Haven't seen any new work from you for a while. I really miss it because I find your work really inspiring!!!

Thanks for this mate. I'm not on Deviant every day so sorry about the late reply. I have to work around a full time job and recently have ground to a halt. One rejection letter too many I guess. Thanks for your message. A reminder to get on with it and stop moaning. Love your work and again thanks.

Going fine mate. My job has changed recently so I haven't been able to illustrate at all. Your work has hugely improved. I don't check on Deviant as much as I should but I'm well impressed.

I am officially doing commissions everybody!!! $20 for a base sketch including 1 character, shading and background. Any additional characters will be $5. I also do paintings, if you want an Acrylic or Watercolor painting it will be $30. I am VERY awesome with Oil paints but they will be a little more expensive, BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! So please note me if anyone is interested ^-^
