Merry Christmas everyone!

It's been some months since my last update, and even longer since I was properly active on DA. I feel a little bad neglecting this place for so long, as it's truly you guys that have propped me up, encouraged me, and even kept me fed and off the streets for years. Here's what I've been up to:

My DA messages inbox is currently at a historical "zero". Three days ago I had over 600 messages backed up. My loose estimate was that I'd been ignoring most comments for about half a year, but to my own shock it turns out I've actually neglected replying to you guys for a full year. Time flies!
Unfortunately it wasn't practical to get back to everyone, even all the actual questions. I missed you guys on my Birthday, and when I received my last Daily Deviation award, among other things.
If anyone has sent me comments, notes, or talked about commissions and feels I'm forgetting you, please do contact me again to get the ball rolling. I want to get back into maintaining my communications here, just gotta build those habits.

Battletech fans have probably seen some of the new artwork coming out from Catalyst. I've been the lead artist for the classic redesign project for much of the year, which is where most of my time has gone and the main reason I've neglected my DA account this year. This project will be going on for quite a while still, but I'm picking back up with my other art projects and commissions too.

Some of you are also wondering where my Protectorate Wars book is, as it's long overdue. I definitely got in over my head there, painting up some artwork is one thing, but pulling it all together into a book including the writing and layout is a whole new level of effort required. Keeping myself going in tandem with others has been a lot to juggle. Letting myself slip, or anyone else involved, holds everything up, hence the delays.
I'm still chipping away at it with my layout guy Murry. He sets up a few pages, I fix up the art fittings, he lays it all in, repeat. I hope we'll have a new war chapter ready soon to release another beta version, but I still can't say when the whole thing will wrap up. One thing is for sure, I wont abandon the book, it will be done some day.

Might be forgetting something, but I think that's all for now. Hope you guys are enjoying the holidays.
I'll be streaming for a short while right now. I'm continuing work on a Battletech commission.
Come watch and chat.

I hope you don't mind me asking; do you use PhotoShop and its default brushes?
