Azure Cover by ToolKitten
Azure Cover
My new project is off to the printers! There is but 100 copies of this preview issue and whatever I dont sell in seattle I will put online! Soon I will also be putting the digital copy up here for sale with points.

stay tuned!

"Azure is about the crushing physicality of depression, and the way that, when freed from its weight, we can fly." - Pat Shand

This cover was digipainted on livestream in about 3 hours.

Alright friends, fans, art loves, beautiful people,= and students of the art world, I have something awesome to tell you!

I have started a brand new venture on the side of my everyday work , that is hopefully going to allow me to provide you all with some amazing art and How-To-Video's of my work processes!

Patreon.com is an great site that allows creators to make a page that offers various levels of patronage for people to support cet' creator and receive various levels of rewards!

The reason I feel like this could work great is because with your support I would be able to do 2 things (at first):

1.) I would be able to create my new comic called 'Howl' - with your support I would be able to designate more time to a comic that I am dying to create Howl- unlettered by ToolKitten

2.) I would be able to create constant How-To Videos/Tutorials - On Patreon.com I am able to upload all of my livestream videos, high res files and the .tiff files with my actual 'layers' in Photoshop!

We could even combine these 2 things and with your support I could draw and color my own comic, whilst uploading every sketch, file, and vidoe of my process...complete it together and then you would all receive the finished product either digitally or hard copy depending on your level of patronage. Some rewards also include monthly original sketches from me signed to you personally!!

So for any of you who buy my art, want to learn how I do it, or simply just want to see it all happening with daily updates please feel free to check out www.patreon.com/neiruffino and who knows where we could go together! :)

Hello, I am contacting people I have decided to watch and admire to tell them about a project we have underway.

Myself and Traumwelt (visit his DA page here-->nemoalleintraumwelt.deviantart…) have begun creating our first comic book together. It is called Old Harry's tale, and it is a supernatural and philosophical drama. The first six pages of Issue #1 will be submitted to Tumblr and DA

We call ourselves Scapegoat comics and all news of the project will be relayed here at the Scapegoat comics club --> scapegoat-comics.deviantart.co… And I would like all those who watch me to join.

The project is going to be set to a kickstarter which will be linked to the club page later within the month. And all who join the club will have early access to the rewards including the free digital intro comic bening the rules.

If you want to join it is automatically approved, you just need to click a button. If you don't want to, that's fine. It's your choice after all.

Also even if you do not join the club I would be most pleased if you watched this video we made and tell us what you think--> www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvWc6w…

Once again, you can ingore all of this. You have free will after all.

The prints deal on your store for the free prints, is the $100 a requirement before or after the discount that gets applied after purchase?  Wondering how many prints I have to buy.  :D
