I met Alex at Comic Con San Diego years ago and and was absolutely blow away by his body of work.

If you're not familiar check this: alexhorley.deviantart.com/

Alex has an incredible gallery and work history and he pulls off what I can only dream of, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a tad jealous, but only in the best of ways.  He has an incredible sense of light and drama that I've only seen a few pull off. I could go on and on but his work speaks for it's self. I just wish he didn't live halfway around the frikkin planet, we'd hang out more. Sì, sto parlando con te Alex. ;)

I happy to share Alex's work with all you nice peoples and I hope you enjoy it.

Every now and again I've stumbled across artists who's work is astounding and had it not been featured in a spotlight, I may never have seen it otherwise. So to that end I'd like to offer my contribution.

Dave DeVries: davedevries.deviantart.com/gal…

Dave has worked just about everywhere. Marvel, DC, Universal Studios, Upper Deck Entertainment, the pedigree is extensive and astounding. Dave is a painter and an illustrator in the truest sense of the word. My feeble work doesn't hold a candle to Dave's, not that art is a competition in any stretch of the imagination, but artists always want to better themselves, increase their abilities and Dave is the person I often look to. I'm proud and honored to know him and he's a very good friend.

Take a gander through the gallery, and this is in no way representative of the body of work that Dave's produced. If you like what you see check out Dave's baby, The Monster Engine : www.themonsterengine.com/

I happy to share this work with all you nice peoples and I hope you enjoy it.

Some may be aware and some may not be SO, if you're interested in Photoshop and don't have a boatload of cash to part with [who does?] You can head on over to Adobe and download CS2 for free.

Yes, you read that correct. Adobe is giving away CS2 for free. Here's the catch. You're on your own with it. They don't support it any more and if it breaks, c'est la vie.

You can find it here: www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlem… - The serial is listed there as well. I can confirm it works on WIN7 [Needed a copy for work for some basic bits]. You'll need to create an Adobe ID [30 seconds] and you'll need the min system requirements. You'll also find a good deal of their older creative suite products.

Look towards the bottom of the page, there's WIN and MAC versions available. Yes it's 7 years old and it's unsupported, but it does a good deal for the price, which is free. Content aware doesn't function as well as advanced brushes but for free, who really wants to complain.

Enjoy

So when we were kids we'd take 8mm monster and kung-fu movies we'd buy and make our own sound tracks using a cassette recorder. Being bored the other day I found a copy of SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO. The live action movie of the 80's animated tv series released in the US as Star Blazers.

AND not knowing to leave well enough alone, I made my own subtitle track.

The jokes are lame and in many instances lifted from various sources [cited] as an homage to the numerous sources of entertainment that have molded my oddly varnished brain into what it is.

If you get bored and have 2 hours and 20 minutes to kill check it out, and trust me it ain't easy to come with that much material.

Enjoy

Howdy fellow deviants,

My wife Phoebe and I are proud to announce that we've partnered with DAZ3D to release GHOST, The Digital Edition V1.5.

GHOST is and has been our ongoing project and now finally after many years of false starts, she's here. Check out more here: www.daz3d.com/shop/new-release…

It's hard to convey the emotions of finally seeing your project come to life. We're very happy here.

This edition is a digital 'FlipBook'. It's PC based at the moment, [MAC soon] and emulates a book on your screen, for digital illustrations it's great, being lit from behind really keeps the life that you created it with. We like to think that we've made it affordable for every one, but the introductory price is $4.95US, for less than a lunch you can have an original work that we're very proud of.

As for me, yes the images are nice but it's the story that I'm so happy to get out there. Phoebe has written the story I never could have and I'm very proud to be part of her life.

We hope you enjoy it.
Daniel

For those unfamiliar, here's the elevator pitch.

GHOST - Haunted since she was a baby, Jennifer Rhys can't believe any Angel is good until she must face the unthinkable: her human life's end and her rebirth as an Angel, the last of the Heavenly Guardians called GHOSTS. Targeted for annihilation by the Dark Angel Iblis, GHOST must save the world from Iblis's insatiable desire to create a new order.

Her world view blighted by Iblis's brutal murder of her parents, Jennifer wages war against her Angelic identity. She destroys the stone angels adorning her parent's graves and rejects Muon the Herald, a half Angel child with the potential power for greatest good—or greatest evil. She denies Sariel, the Other half of her Angelic being, split from her by Iblis following His fall. As the world spirals into darkness, Jennifer returns to her existence as GHOST, there she must face the greatest loss of all.
