Part of Your No Shirt Design

I've been working on some shirt designs lately and one of them was to convert Part of Your No to a design suitable for a shirt.  It's currently up on a list of potential shirt prints for The Yetee!  If you need a Grumpy Ariel shirt in your life head over to The Yetee Facebook Page and let them know you'd like them to print it with a comment, like, or share!

A: Yes! You can either catch me at a few of the east coast conventions where I sell my work or head over to my online store:
Q: What breed is your black cat?
A: Grendel is a Highland Lynx. His tail is naturally short, his ears are curled, and he has 26 toes. He's basically a miniature black bear. You can see videos of him on youtube:

You really use ArtRage?! I have a starter edition and I don't have many options, but I thought that this program isn't good… maybe I should start drawing in ArtRage xD

It's a great program!  I'm not really using that often these days but I definitely got started in digital painting using it :)

Wow your work is so good! I love the grumpy cat series lol xD
Your adoptable/animal creations are also amazing!

You must have worked really hard and practiced a lot to get where you are now :O
Did you study anything art or did you teach yourself?

Hope you have a great day and keep up the awesome work!

Thank you so much!  I studied traditional painting in school and I taught myself how to use Photoshop to digitally paint :)  I'm glad you like my work!

Thats cool! Did you find the transition over to digital relatively easy to pick up after knowing the traditional theory?

And no problem, its great :)
