I really felt the need to share this with you, Bing Ratnapala is fairly new to DA, but his work is amazing, check out his gallery:
bing-ratnapala.deviantart.com/

His new fan art of Joffrey from Game of Thrones is brilliant:
Game of Thrones: Joffrey Baratheon (sketch) by Bing-Ratnapala

Bing's style is really cool and you can tell he has that natural talent, great flow and movement which I love.
Keep an eye on his work, he's one to watch ;)

Cheers

Now that my latest class is out, you can learn about my entire art process. In the first class I walk through my drawing process, just pencil and paper. Now in my new class I go through my entire digital process, from everything you learnt in the first class, with a sketch all the way through to line work, colours, shading and lighting, I even cover backgrounds.

If you're interested here are the classes:

Penciling class:
skl.sh/17RMiqi

Digital art class:
skl.sh/1hl7EPf

The classes is easy, all at your own pace, once enrolled you get access to all the video lessons and detailed steps.

I hope to see you there!

THANK YOU EVERYBODY! 
3 million page views and counting, this really means a lot to me and I appreciate all the support you have all given me.

DeviantART has been my home for about 6 years now, I started off barely knowing a thing about digital art and posting for the world to see. But I am so glad I did, I was so motivated by everyone who enjoyed my fan art that it really pushed me to do more and more! I am grateful to every one of you that keep an eye out for my work. A lot of people are amazed that I don't do this professionally, it's because I'd rather do it out of passion and have fun with my skills. 

So once again, thank you, thank you, thank you! Also I just want to say sorry if I haven't got back to your messages, there are just so many to go through and with such little free time these days, so my apologies for that.

Good news! I know it's been a long time since my last posts and the artwork has been dry, but the wedding went well and everything has become nice and cruisy now. so I'm just trying to get myself back into gear and start focusing on my work again and bring fresh new art to you all :)

I still have a commission project I have to work on but I'll try and juggle both so you still get to see some new art. Life is feeling pretty good right now, I haven't been this happy in a long time, I'm excited to get back at work and keep it going!

Life and stuff...

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 8, 2013, 10:21 PM
I know things have been very quiet lately with my work, I barely manage to post a new every month now.. So I just want to say sorry for that, I am still very passionate about my work and always think about new projects, it's just I never have the time and lately it's hard to get the motivation with everything else that's going on in my life at the moment.

My mother passed away just a few weeks ago so that brought me down for a while. The months before that were the hardest though, which is one of the main reasons I haven't been myself for a long time. It was only 6 months ago when I lost my father. So I've found it hard to focus on things and in between all of this I've been in the middle of buying a new house, which isn't so bad, it's kind of exciting but very time consuming.

I've also been preparing for my wedding which is only 5 weeks away :D It's been hectic organising everything for that and working out what all the little bits and pieces, but I'm very excited for that day to come. Once thing I can tell you though, in about.. a month or two from now my slate will be clean and I'll finally be able to focus on my art!

In the meantime, I do manage to get the odd sketch out when I have a spare few minutes so I'll try and post a few more of them up on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/PatrickBrownA…
