New Blog Site Coming

Brace yourselves folks. I've got a new Blog Site coming devoted strictly to pretty much everything I'm doing. In the meantime, as a follow up from last week, check out the finished colors to the panel i drew. I'm going to redraw the female character (Shatter) though. Wasn't overall pleased with how she turned out. [...]

Blogging while drunk

It's not quite as dangerous as driving...but it's close... No but seriously, I'm watching this god awful Thursday night game (f'real why is Jacksonville on national TV again???)
