Your work is amazing. As a student, I love trying to imamate your works. But I can never manage to get the right balance of light+shadow to make them really come to life. I am not worthy *bows*

Wow, Disney has a new target audience... hot hot hot. Sadly my fav Disney hero has always been Simba. That would be odd in your collection. That Flynn rider one is amazing, those lanterns!

I know everyone says that your work is FREAKIN amazing - and that's because it is! But I was wondering if you could do Rumpelstiltskin from the new tv series Once Upon A Time. I know it's not disney or cartoon but I'm just a dork, and your work is so real

Not That Kind Of Guy...
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Personal Quote: “Without the heart, there can be no understanding between the hand and the mind.”
Interests
In one moment a mother no longer has a son, a doughtier no longer have a father, kids can no longer visit their grandmother. 

You try to think only about that, but then you look at the pictures of the victims, and the picture of the terrorist who killed them, and the mind don't want to go there. You start to hear voices on the news saying it was 'an accident', or blaming it on 'misuse of drugs'... 

Then pictures of a young man holding a gun in his hand in one shot and burning the American flag in another start to appear online. And again, you try not go there, cause you don't want to live in this kind of world, it's too hard to admit it. You block away all recent shooting and brutality by the police and all the videos you saw online. In your search for answers that will please or ease you, you come across news reports that are now spreading this insane 'manifesto' and you can no longer escape from the truth! 

And now everyone talks about how you need to invest more money in education to 'black schools', cause it is very easy to think that the problem is, again, within the African American community. And I say that they should also start thinking of spending money on education in 'white schools' like the ones from which the Charleston shooter came from because this is where the problem is! When some people so proudly jamming to Beyoncé, but don't want people with same skin colour as her living in their neighbourhoods!

Racism is alive, and well! And it is thriving in the hearts and souls of the younger generation, and it is time for everyone to wake up! Get out of our bubbles and start seeing this latest shooting for what  it is - A racist hate crime - and stop trying to cover it up with prettier words that will make it easier on us handle or give us excuse to 'understand it'! 

Ignoring racism won't make it go away! It is up to each of us to take ownership of our actions, test ourselves brutally and honestly as to where may act as part of the problem, and as a whole be more kind to one another, see people for who they are not for how they look. 


I pray the images of Susie Jackson, Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Rev. Daniel L. Simmons Sr., Cynthia Hurd, Ethel Lee Lance, Tywanza Sanders, Myra Thompson, Rev. Sharonda Singleton, and Rev. Clementa Pinckney would be the images of the last people murdered because of the colour of their skin. 
Amen.

Now that everyone voted for the next guy to be in the Heroes Collection, what do you think about a portrait of The King of Arendelle?

Say, have you ever played a game called, Coming Out on Top? It's a gay dating sim that I think would be up your ally (you can even alter if you want beards and chest hair). (The guys' builds remind me of your work.

Hello David, a freind of mine posted this on Facebook and I remember all of your posts during the last outbreak of violence and I thought you might like to see the kind of support that is out there for Israel:
www.buzzfeed.com/standwithus/u…

Examples are from places usually seen as unfriendly and most of whom can only show their passport.

Maybe some day the kind of freedoms and tolerance that Israel has shown to its people will flourish throughout the region.

Since Disney owns the franchise now, how about doing some Star Wars pieces for your Heroes collection? Lots of hot guys to work with there. Luke, Han, Anakin, Darth Maul...  And have you considered doing any non-Disney heroes? I for one would DIE to see you do Link from The Legend Of Zelda.

Hi! Your art is wonderful! The quality and style just...well, I find myself at a loss for words.

I was wondering if you did requests?

I am new to DA and looking for artists that could do a few very basic sketches of characters from a novel I am working on. I have finally moved past my organizational phase and into my drafting phase. I would adore concept sketches for inspiration and to serve as a basis for other artists should they also desire helping me.

If you would like to discuss it any further, feel free to reach me via e-mail, Facebook, or here.

I can't wait to hear from you!
