Hello everyone,

It's been some time since I've posted a new journal entry, and so, I'm happy to announce that I have officially joined Patreon and humbly ask that you support me and my work, as stated in the link below:…

Though I will continue to post my artwork here on Deviantart as well, I do plan on having special rewards for those who join me on Patreon.  There will be early access to my work, exclusive images not found anywhere on the web (particularly in regards to my upcoming graphic novel)!  I plan on sharing works in progress, and even the secrets to my techniques, which incorporate digital painting along side photographs of real fire that I would take, personally!  I also plan to distribute signed copies of my graphic novel which I hope to have published in the future!  To learn more, visit the link above, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Thank you very much for even considering to support me as it is truly appreciated!

Similarly, my wife, :iconyamigirl21: has also started a Patreon page, as seen in this link:…

Furthermore, I wanted to announce that I have been accepted into the Katsucon's Artist Alley this February 2016!

My wife, :iconyamigirl21: has also applied to this event, but has currently been put on the waitng list.  Here's hoping that we can both attend this event together, as we celebrate our first wedding anniversary!

Furthermore, the two of us have also applied to another anime convention, Zenkaikon! ;

At the time of this writing, :iconyamigirl21: has been added to the Artist Alley, but much like her for the prior event, I have been put on the waiting list as well.  I haven't given up though, so if I can attend this event along with her, I will!

I also wanted to update you all that I have continued to work on my graphic novel, "Scorched Souls," and hope to have even more illustrations and panels for you to view! I thank you all for the interest in my work so far, and ask that you be on the look out for more!

Thanks again everyone, and stay tuned for more information both here, and my official website:

You can also visit my official Facebook page, which also features my work at this link:…

And finally, if you would like to purchase prints of my work, please visit my online store at:

Furthermore, even though you are able to read my biography on my official website, I am also including the passage here.  Please visit for other related news as well; news such as gallery showings, future publications and public appearances! Thank you again!


The artist recognized as Pyropainter (both nationally and internationally) has a very precise and rather unique method for creating his renowned works of art. Firstly, he begins by igniting a carefully controlled fire in the outdoors, and then taking a number of photographs of the blaze. Additionally, he proceeds to study and identify the complex formations found in the flames; capturing it's natural, free-flowing movements with the aid of his digital camera. This process is then repeated as he encircles the fire, the focus being on the discovery of even more interesting angles found within the flames; as well as capturing it's very life and vibrancy. 

Next, Pyropainter imports the selected photographs into various graphics editing software, digitally manipulating the images into a rough composition. Whether the flames erupt into a gritty gothic city skyline or the form of a demonic wraith, Pyropainter makes clever use of the organic quality of the flickering inferno to create a basis for his pieces. Following this step, he would then dive deeper into the image, creating sharp, captivating details with the use of those digital programs. By finalizing the artwork with his honed painting techniques, Pyropainter is able to create hauntingly realistic images with their own individuality and a distinctive narrative describing them. The result is an intriguing presentation of what a single artist can visualize, re-imagine, and solely bring about with his own imagination, as well as the use of the a natural element.
