Watchers

If you haven't checked out the Madefire tool available here you should. It's an amazingly simple tool to use. This will be the future of the comic books. I love the user interaction that's involved in this new program. It makes the viewing experience so much more fun and brings it to the next level in my opinion.

Testing out the features starting with the parallax layer and I'm having a ball with it. I love these types of moving covers.

Art and music have always been woven into the talents of my relatives. I'm a child of the seventies so I was fortunate not to have the luxuries kids have today. I drew to keep myself occupied. Drawing is all I knew. Drawing my favorite TV shows. Drawing football action as my dad watched his games. My first exposure to comic book characters were the Spiderman cartoons and the Batman show.

Later I was fortunate to inherit my cousins comic book collection. There were a lot of war comics. Sgt. Fury, Sgt. Rock, Weird War Tales, etc.. It exposed me to great artists like Joe Kubert, John Severin, and Russ Heath. But the collection also had the entire Kirby 4th world. It blew me away. It was nothing like I had ever seen before. This was my first exposure to the king before I saw his Marvel stuff. And for a time I tried to emulate him. It's wasn't until the early eighties that I started buying comics with my own money. I was more into the artists than stories. Master of Kung with Mike Zeck drawing, Daredevil with Frank Miller, Conan with John Buscema, Sienkiewicz on Moon Knight, and anything that John Byrne and George Pérez touched.

For a while I dropped out of comics and lost touch with what was going on. It wasn't until I was in college a classmate started talking about this guy named Todd McFarlane. It raised my interest and I went out and bought Spiderman #2 and I was like this is cool. I've never seen a marvel artist draw like this. It inspired me for sure because I loved the detail. I started drawing my own comics using stories from Clive Barker's Books of Blood and I've dabbled in the self publishing arena.

Then the iMac came out and it literally changed my life. I was able to learn enough skills to land a graphic artist job for prepress printing and I'm proud to say I've been doing it ever since.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!

Hi there! Thank you very much for adding my work to the favourites!

I am currently preparing to launch a project to create and release my own line of figures, which will involve fantasy figs and dinosaurs, as finished and painted statues. In parallel, I am also working on my book trilogy, and as a matter of fact, the figure line I am preparing will be canonical to the books. The first book will have a complete draft by the end of this year and then will go through the process of editing and publishing.

Please like my page on Facebook and if you know anybody else who likes fantasy or dinosaurs, please spread the word! This will help me bring my fanbase (dont mean to sound cocky, but you know what I mean!) and lift my project off the ground, so that everybody out there can enjoy my work as much as I do! I will post any updates or new work here, but the news on the WIP on any particular artwork and the project in general will be posted on the FB page.

Here is the link: www.facebook.com/arsen.kazarya…

Thank you very much!

All the best,
AK1508
