Sagat vs Wan Derbard by Zombie-Pacman
Sagat vs Wan Derbard
Gainax vs Capcom - ROUND 27...FIGHT!

Sagat (Street Fighter) vs Wan Derbard (KO Century Beast Warriors). Now THAT'S what you call a "Tiger Knee".

Concept pretty much speaks for itself. Took an hour or two to sketch, ink, scan, and colour, with minor touch-ups to the inks on the PC. The foreshortening, once again, was my prime worry, but it looks alright. KO Century Beast Warriors is a really obscure anime from the early/mid 90's; I remember there were only about 3 episodes released in Britain back then, and until now, I was unaware that it was a Gainax anime, so I have some "new" characters to mix and match.

[edit: added Wan's tail. And gave Sagat's leg a wee bit of blur.]

New ZX Spectrum Cassette Cover by Zombie-Pacman
New ZX Spectrum Cassette Cover
Another new game being made for the good old ZX Spectrum, "Descending Dungeons", a demo of which is available to download here (That's a direct link).

I upped my game with this one, using Minecraft to construct a base dungeon in the background, adding textures manually in Photoshop, and generally having a lot of fun. Quite proud of the tentacle texture and the magic frost spell, the characters themselves were fun to make-up (getting better at designing clothes)...bit of a learning experience as I was working. Yeah. I like this one.
David Bowie stencil by Zombie-Pacman
David Bowie stencil
First stencil of 2016. Still trying to decide whether to add stars to the constellation or not (for that is what it's supposed to be), and which title to use between "Waiting in the Sky", "Planet Earth is Blue" and "The Stars Look Very Different Today".

There was quite a bit of freehand painting and freehand stencilling as well in the background and foreground. The actual stencil of Bowie came out flawless; glad I went with chrome paint and not grey as planned.
'The Order of Mazes' - ZX Spectrum cassette cover by Zombie-Pacman
'The Order of Mazes' - ZX Spectrum cassette cover
Designed a cassette cover for a new ZX Spectrum games called "The Order of Mazes" (which you can download directly from here, it's a cracking wee game, it changes every time you play it). You play either a wizard or a witch and creep through a labyrinth, looking for treasure, and battling assorted beasties. Had a lot of fun with this.
James Randi stencil, 2 layers by Zombie-Pacman
James Randi stencil, 2 layers
James Randi, famous sceptic, smirking on pages from the Fortean times. I was planning on using one of his books, but they're expensive, even 2nd hand. Came out all right, just hope people don't think it's a beardier Steve Jobs.

No worries, you're doing God's work man. :)

You're better than most - probably because you put serious time into your art.
(But being "better than average" here on dA, and racking up :+fav:s or page views will never be a reliable indicator of much.)
I bet you're the last one who can see how much more confident the work is your gallery is getting, then-to-now. Keep pushing on. Keep being so courageous in your composition and execution techniques...!

Thanks for the words, man. Today's been a weird one, between being awarded a Daily Deviation and selling a painting (the Hunter S Thompson stencil), I've been trying (and failing) to keep a straight face. Right now, I'm looking at projects/canvases I've lined up and planning the time I devote to them; it's all I can do. If I could only value my work properly, I don't know, I might be able to make a living out of it. That's the dream, anyway.

Holy bovine, I hadn't even seen the DD. That almost makes it sound as if I knew what -I- was talking about.
But enough about basking in the glow of your success...

I really doubt anyone "value[s] their work properly" as of a single celestial moment. It's a learned behavior - no matter what those critical voices say (that sound a lot like, um, this person or that one). When I have a paycheck coming in again I'll be looking real hard at your prints - and it's a good era for selling things online or in person, so I hope it'll be easier to get to the point of "making a living out of it" for you young turks than it ever would've been for your elders.

Cheers for the words, mate. The DD has boosted morale quite a bit, I'm trying to get enough work together to hold an exhibition somewhere. "Unfortunately", people keep buying my stencils (at a cheap price, I may add); a friend commented that I'm possibly the only artist in existence to complain about people buying their work.

But I see selling them now as a short-term goal; money in my pocket, and a short-lived morale boost...organising an exhibition and bumping the prices up, getting my name out there and watching commissions roll in as friends of the buyers see my work on living room walls and are referred to me, and the potential for going self-employed. THAT'S long-term. Just hopefully not TOO long-term.
