Where to start when you start again?

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 25, 2013, 3:00 PM

I think I've said this bit before...

Hello everyone! Long time

I'll try and keep things brief though I've got a lot to cover. First and foremost the most important thing I have to say is:


I regret having to use a blanket 'thank you' but now I'm back (again) I've hit that horrible cliff when some messages have simply been left to reply to. Likewise there's been so much art I've missed that I doubt I'll have the time to catch up on everything :(

So basically this is a cut-off. I'll basically be blanking my message box and deviant watch list (except where explicit questions have been asked) in an attempt to keep up to date with future messages and new arts. But in the meantime I just want to reiterate that I do really appreciate all the kind comments and so forth that I have received over the last year or so.

:dance: :dance: :dance:

So, what have I been doing?

My life has changed a fair... a bit since last I was active. I'm now a freelance artist, graphic and web-designer and have taken upon the moniker of "A Bloke Called Zedderick" 
Well I wanted to be different. 

I now have my own website - please feel free to click and tell me what you think :) Link at the bottom!

Aynho, I've gone through a couple of college courses on the "delights" of website building; have done a few websites and graphics and whatnot, though this particular year I've been primarily preoccupied with doing liveries for sim-racing teams - examples of which I will be uploading over the coming days.

A couple of examples already exist on dA:

Mphtechmaccaeaurouge by w3l54666

Mphtechslsspa2 by w3l54666

The shots were taken and very artistically finished by Mike Phillis (w3l54666) - though I should also point out that the second livery I finished up on behalf on the original designer, Hugo Nobre. Phillis and Nobre  also run the team the cars belong to :)

Anything else?

Besides involving myself in a couple of Armed Assault mods and writing a few articles for an upcoming F1 News site, I've also become an "extra" on TV and have found several new fandoms that I will likely be exploring "artistically" over the coming months. One is Assassin's Creed and the other will become abundantly clear when I post some (of the) artwork I'm in the process of working on, though I've left a potentially very obscure reference in the music I am listening too...

Anyway, that's probably enough for now.

Cheers again! :dance:

Does my digital artwork appear overly saturated to you? 

12 deviants said Looks absolutely fine/normal!
7 deviants said I don't see it as a problem
3 deviants said I beg your pardon??? (check the comments plz)
3 deviants said Well...not *really*...but...
1 deviant said Yes, noticeably...
No deviants said No, if anything they should be more saturated dammit!!!
No deviants said I'm of another opinion (please comment)


Russian relatives: nope. :blush: Just a possibly unhealthy obsession =P
