Welcome to my little corner of DeviantArt!

I created this account many years ago with the promise of reintroducing myself to sketching and digital artwork, having been quite a prolific sketcher/scribbler back in school. Unfortunately that never amounted to anything (read: im lazy) until the craziest and most unlikely of things would kickstart my creativity once more: My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic. Had you told me back when i created this profile that it would be filled with ponies, I might have laughed at you :P

But here I am, sketching away, getting acquainted with the art of digital vectoring and enjoying the feedback from people about the stuff i do. So please, enjoy my gallery and feel free to leave a comment!

I am finding it increasingly difficult to maintain any kind of skepticism over this, I really am. I have been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember, and while the prequels (in my opinion) were passable they fell well short of their potential. And between Disneys taking over of Lucasfilm and J.J Abrams taking the helm for another trilogy it was hard not to be worried about what was going to happen to my beloved franchise (we all remember what Abrams did to Star Trek right?).

But with a number of sneak peeks over the last few months showing things such as proper set builds to location shoots, I am beginning to see that Abrams is taking this task very seriously, dare I say he has been keeping an ear to the ground and listening to what criticisms fans had been leveling at Lucas' prequels (and hoo boy were there a lot of them). And then up pops Teaser trailer #2, and damn its looking good folks. Big hulking Star Destroyer wreckage in the desert? Vaders charred helmet? Shiny new Stormtroopers and TIE fighters? Falcon chase through a wrecked ship?

And then that final scene? "Chewie.... we're home."

Im all choked up here.

EQD Banner - Season 5 by Starbolt-81
EQD Banner - Season 5
Season 5 has arrived! The hiatus is over, and with it a pretty good episode right out of the gates. What did you all think?

Anyway, made this for the fine folks at Equestria Daily to use for a banner for the new season after getting the idea for it last week. Will probably post a larger high res version later.

Its like christmas has come early (or maybe late depending on point of view)









Anyone who has never played the original Homeworld should consider picking up this gem via the Steam store, its a damn good space RTS.

Sadly had to order though Amazon UK since there seemed to be no local outlets in Australia supplying the Collectors Edition, and they had a delay in sending out mine. Happily, they apologized for the inconvenience and emailed me a steam key for the game so i could download it and have a bash while waiting for the CE goodies to arrive. 5 points to Amazon.

So as you can see I have a neat little replica of the Homeworld 2 Mothership, which plugs in via USB to light up which is neat. Also included was a keyring and (most importantly) a reprinting of the technical briefing that came with the original game way back in 1999 (I actually still have the original book sitting right beside me now). For those who dont know, the Technical briefing was a nice little book of lore that detailed a lot about the race of people you are charged with leading across the galaxy in the game. It contained a history of the people, their world and their politics.
