First I want to say a big thanks to everyone who checks out my page and comments on my art. I really appreciate it! Although I don't always have time to thank everyone individually for their comments, I like to read them- it's very cool! ^_^

Art Trade Status:
I decided to take on a few Trades at the end of last year to help get me back into drawing. It's fun, but still owe a few people art and vice-versa.

Nikki Art:

If you're bored and would like to draw my OC Nikki, that would be great!
Nikki 2012 by Bomu
I'm still waiting to check out some Nikki art from others after having won prizes for their respective art contests, but I imagine that might not happen- been waiting a long while :/
If you draw her, please send me a link so I can add to my Favs :)

Art Related:

I've got a few potential projects in the pipe line:
* A new book project focusing on Photoshop tutorials. Basically putting a guide together to feature everything I've learned about the program over the last decade.. Well, everything I can fit into 160 pages at least.
* I've started working part time as a tattooist at a local studio. Am hoping once I begin to master inking on skin, I'll be able to start specializing in more custom work. Maybe focus on manga influenced tattoos? I'd like to end up getting away from tattooing typical stars, butterflies, tribal pieces and basic lettering.
* My homepage Organic Metal has now been tweaked to the point where I think I'll leave it alone. I'll keep it online but only ever carry out minimal maintenance on it from now on. I have plans to create separate new websites for my character art and illustration, one for my graphics and designs, and another for my tattoos.
