DD #6

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 20, 2010, 6:26 PM



I always thought there was a statute of limitations on DDs, Chasing After Death is like 2 yrs old. Check out the lines at my tumblr thing: mattahan.tumblr.com

Anyway, thanks everyone!  especially :iconphoenixleo: for suggesting it, and :iconnorke: for featuring it.

Sketchblog, Commissions etc.

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 16, 2010, 2:12 PM



Just a reminder, my sketchblog is pretty active with a new sketch almost daily: mattahan.tumblr.com

Also commissions are open and would be much appreciated right now. Updated info on that here: mattahan.deviantart.com/journa…

I’ll be posting some new stuff here pretty soon.

I like that the focus is on the art.

The ads are super annoying and distracting.

How come, after 7 versions, theres still no option to change the background color behind deviations? Not everything is gonna look good against this pale green.

And I would like to not have to click to get a decent quality version of the art.

Soul Calibur 4

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 22, 2009, 6:16 AM
I did some trading cards based on this game for Fantasy Flight Games a while back. Fairly certain I'm not allowed to show them as yet. Anyway, doing them led me to purchase an xbox and the game. It's pretty good, if you don't own it you should get it. If you do, my gamertag is hattaman. Come get ya ass kicked.

I'm pretty late to this generation of consoles, what games do y'all recommend?

here's a nice mini-feature on me: tyronelove.deviantart.com/jour…

More on SC4: I know fighting games are best enjoyed with a human opponent, but the single player modes just aren't as good as earlier games in the series. I actually liked the old mission battle-ish modes, the maps provided a sense of progress in the game. Tower of Lost Souls is nothing more than a glorified Survival mode, the non-glorified version of which is conspicuously absent.  And why the hell is there no Team Battle Namco? wtf? /rant

Critiques

An interesting new feature. I'm thinking it might change the way artists interact with their viewers. Really shouldn't be subscriber only though, every artist deserves thoughtful input.

$10 sketches still available, or full commissions if you want.

If I'm ever going to make one I figure I should familiarize myself with some of the better ones.

My meager collection so far:
-Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall
-Watchmen
-Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
-Batman: Year One

Can you recommend any?

I'm kinda lax with my commission related paperwork. Which I suppose is why I've been ripped off a few times?

Dance On Glass

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 3, 2009, 9:26 PM
Hey ya'll what's goin' on...

That year went kinda quick right?

New stuff in the pipeline. There's probably some old stuff I haven't had a chance to  submit yet, I'll try to do that this week.

It's finally happened, I've become one of those artists that are too busy to produce personal work on a regular basis. A bittersweet epiphany.

Thanks for looking, reading, fav'ing, and watching.

Mattahan.com may or may not come soon.

The Truest Lie

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 14, 2008, 7:34 PM
I was hating on this piece since I made it. I just felt it was missing something (bears probably). I made it shortly before releasing 3 Days Later, for the included tutorial, around October.

But now that It's out there and people like it, I guess it's not so bad.

I taught a class at a local high school a couple weeks ago. It was cool, I'd never really done anything like that before. I'd like to do it again, around January, after exams.

Umm... that's it.

It's awesome sometimes. But other times it means weeks of empty pockets, cupboards etc.

How Do You Stay Motivated?

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 26, 2008, 5:52 PM
The drive to work on my book was omnipresent when I was back home. Now I'm in the states and the laziness has a stranglehold on me. I'm still interested in making the book, so it's not lack of motivation. And the work itself is interesting. But since I came back I have found it more difficult to get started.

When you have a large project to work on, how do you stay motivated?

Maybe I'm still just tired from the traveling.
