Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
New name, new style, fresh beginnings!
I'm a freelance artist making my way on commissions. I spend all my time doing that and work from home 7 days a week.
I'm only posting the art from 2011 ->
Last full picture was done yesterday, and the flying shark...thing is going to be my entry for either the sea- guardian or possibly sky guardian, haha.
If you're wondering the name I was before,it was Blonde Bomber - since then my college had a shooting in 2008, so i don't really feel like using it anymore.
Critiques are definitely welcome.

Wow I love the texture on your clouds. Good work on the dragons too, though the two-headed one seems a bit flat and confused. Looking forward to see more!
I agree, the texture in your work is very nice!! Your backgrounds are great, they really have a sense of atmosphere. I have to say I didn't realize the dragon was two headed though, I thought it was a fire dragon and an ice dragon wreaking havoc together hehe. But I really like how you did their scales, and the crackling effects in the picture.
Thanks for the comments! Vulcant13: I can definately see that. Thankfully this commissioner got me for three pictures of the same character, which you can see a new take with hopefully more depth attached below
Aozorize: Thanks very much!
This round we have a speedpaint, the 3/3 of the two-headed dragon commission, Concept art , and my current illustration in progress!
Back again! I've got one thing up in the critique forums to tweak and finish up on. Something to note that's really not a... SURPRISE to anyone, but i get a lot of my business from furries. No porn. Like...one of 3 on the site with an all-clean gallery. But it's fun to use their concepts and get serious illustrations out of them
New stuff- lots of commissions mostly, some concept stuff, and the flower and the tree are my sort of traditional experiments; i use mulberry paper ripped up, paints, inks, palette knife, acrylic, watercolor and I think a bit of gel pen . The tree needs two people added at the bottom, time for me to start working digitally with it.
The third image down received a DD back a couple weeks ago or so.

Oh, should also add the end of the last WIP i showed here:
and the one I'm working on currently

Been a while, CA- i've been freelancing for the entire year; so here are some random collections of stuffs. I hope to be more frequent on this site, but it's a little hard to settle into.
second part; (CA was starting to run slow so I lobbed my submissions off there)
.....and now CA doesn't understand what images are or how to upload them. oyyyyy

So it's been a year- 2012's mostly be dedicated to getting my stuff in order, improving my buns off. I'm literally just scaling through my 2012 folder and posting stuff up; Better looking stuff was done recently, crappier stuff done early in the year. i'm having problems with CA not accepting a fair bit of these, so whatever goes through, goes up.
Various commissions, doodles, speedpaints, whathaveyou
more professional work done (or snippets of it that I can post until it goes into publication: First image is a book cover, second is part of my illustration for Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, April/May 2013 that i completed a few days ago
both of these are projects i'm working on at this moment, Tank flamey two character one is a commission, bottom is for the cover for Wild Nights's conbook as their GOH for next year.
Since i've got a rageing headache, online portfolio has the rest of my shiny stuff here: www.alradeck.daportfolio.com or random doodles and stuff at www.alradeck.tumblr.com
Got some more images to work, lol.
Doodle for CHOW.
And more work at trying to draw people
Live figure drawing session practice: 5 minute warmups 25 min
This has helped me out quite a bit getting more comfortable with drawing people, my apologies with the shoddy photograph
Updates, some speedpaints and a full commission
