Friend in trouble:

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 30, 2014, 12:49 PM
So one of my old time fans N8DOGG5K is in a bit of a pickle as his journal post will show. He had to have an surgery and now is faced with some heavy medical bills as he lives in the States. He asked me as nicely as possible to pass the word along.

Won't you pay him a visit and consider getting a commission from him? At the very least  just wish him well! Tell him Omar sent you!

Thanks guys!

Read more here below!

Trying to Move Forward...Hello one and all! I certainly hope that you've all been having a great time this holiday season. If you don't celebrate this time of year, then I hope that you're at least just rockin' hard everyday.
I'm back on here today to do something I never thought I would have to do. Remember that surgery I had last month? The emergency surgery I needed in order to continue living? Well I just got a bill in today from my insurance company, and they're not covering the surgery like they said they would. I need to come up with $2,000.00 by January 15, 2015 and I simply do not have the funds right now. For anyone who knows me, I don't exactly have the highest paying job. Even though I work in health-care it isn't the most lucrative of career choices, so a sum like this is a major kick in my teeth.
Now I'm not here to e-beg all of my followers for help. What I am here to say is that my original plan of opening up commissions after the new year has been expedited substantially. All in all, I'm looki

I'm 38 today!

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 18, 2014, 7:51 AM
I'm 38 today! Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

This past year was a big year of change as many things I had been hoping to have come to fruition actual did. I had set many goals that i wanted to achieve and I nailed them all without exception. Thank God.

Some of my major accomplishments were:

Renovation: I renovated my condo all by myself. I did two washrooms and the kitchen floor as well. I installed toilets, sinks, a dishwasher, tile floor, lighting, baseboards, sanded, painted, and polished. The biggest hassle was once I finished the shower floor I had realized there was a problem with it, necessitating pulling the whole floor out! All my hard work destroyed, but I didn't lose heart! I redid it much better than it was and learned a bunch on top of it. I was always scared of tile work, but I conquered my fear!

5th Capsule: Years and years in the making. This was quite possibly the biggest risk I had ever taken in my life. I had saved a bunch of money from my work on Wonder Momo which allowed me to coast for a few months. In those months I was able to get a huge volume of work done on 5C. Once the money started to run out, I had to make a decision as to what to do next. There wasn't any UDON work at the time, and i can't just go and start teaching at Seneca whenever I feel like it, so I had to make it work. So I put 5C on Patreon and lived off of that for a little while longer. I think i remember saying that I wanted to have 100 pages finished by the end of this year, but I got to page 100 in September!

Moved into a house: Over the past 13 years I have lived in my condo. About 10 years ago my wife moved in, and we were fine. Then one child, and then another. I had to move my office out of the home which caused a lot of stress for me as I  have never been far away from my work. But it was also getting very cramped, we didn't have people over since it was too small and were throwing money out by renting an office for me to work to the tune of 600$/ m for a room with no windows. I don't want to get into a huge mortgage, we live off my income only. We found a nice home and have moved in! We're renting it, but I will sell the condo after many years of good service and figure out what to do next, whether it be to buy or rent some more. But for now my little daughters and wife have a home they can enjoy, and I have a place to work. Now they can see their father is not always tired and stressed! I have a garden I can mess with, I have a garage for my man cave, and I have an office with windows that's above ground!

This year coming up I have these goals:

Another 100 pages 5th Capsule, even if it's mostly BW. The colouring wiped me out totally, but I am not defeated. I will do colour pages for ever intro or splash page.

A kid's book, I have plans to make books of some of the stories I tell my daughters, but again I need money to do all these projects as they take time and effort.

Do more conventions, last year i took off to work on 5C, but I plan on going to more conventions as I will have a lot of covers to sign and new stuff I've worked on.

The biggest gift you can give me is to read 5C, it's free, all 105 pages! Just go here and you can read it and hopefully enjoy it!

Art Process / Tutorial Videos available now!

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 26, 2014, 3:39 PM
Alright guys, I have something new for you which you have been asking for years.

The amount of time it takes to do a tutorial, the bandwidth it takes to upload it (some files well over 550MB), the sapce to host some of the files, and many other considerations usually hindered me from making them.


I have changed my Patreon over to a tutorial / process video site!

Now for a pledge of only 1USD per post, you will get not a youtube link, but an actual downloadable video for you to keep along with the full size PSD file with layers! The videos will range between 30 - 90 minutes and are 720pi. The PSD file is well over 2500pi tall/wide.

There is a video I have just posted right now! When you guys become patrons, you can suggest things you want to see and I will try to make as many videos as I can, but I need your support otherwise I will stop since I have to work.

I wasn considering making assignments, doing marker stuff, backgrounds, and just whatever I know.

Go here if you want to help me out! This money will help me continue 5th Capsule and you will get something you KEEP and can study over and over again!

Remember you can set a limit to what you pledge, and I will give advance warning as to what i will post. Most likely I will not exceed 4 posts per month until it gets popular enough. But even that, only 4 bucks for 4 downloadable videos you can keep forever plus either layerd PSDs or if it's marker stuff you get a scan!

I am planning on making an online colouring / drawing course, but for now I will make these videos for you guys since they are very affordable and accessible!

5th Capsule in colour for you for free

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 23, 2014, 10:09 PM
I have been losing sleep over 5th Capsule and its direction for the last month. I've found that the initial desire I had with this book has been missed altogether because I am catering to my fans. It's not unlike the days where I was broadcasting on BlogTV.

I found that in order to give the fans what I thought they wanted, I started to do and say things that I would never do or are totally contrary to my beliefs. 5th Capsule has become the same thing in many ways. When I have you guys pledging your money towards this project I feel compelled to give you something you will like. I hold back a lot of punches, and for this reason it is not true to its initial intent in my mind.

I think the only way I can truly do this is if it is completely free from all funding or interference altogether. You guys inspire me to do my best, and every bit of support I get makes a difference.

I have lost a lot of fame and recognition in the industry in my eyes, and many new and great artists who have a lot more free time and talent than i do are taking the spot light. I will continue to work on SF type projects and all the other stuff as it's my job, but the one thing I do not want to have happen is for 5C to turn into a job to gain popularity.

For that reason I will post everything for free, including the credit page so that all of you get the full credit you deserve. And all of you that have 5C credit towards a commission or page, I have a full record and you can claim it anytime.

To all those who helped make it happen financially, you are in my prayers and have my deepest gratitude, for those of you who are fans please continue to read it. This is the hardest I've ever tried on something, God knows the effort i put into it.

I will post all the pages , and the colour ones too, by tomorrow when I get to work.

Anything I do past this point on 5C will be on my own effort and money, maybe it will have to be BW, maybe it will take months or years, but it will remain free, and I will do as I please with the story. No fund raising, no comixology, no patreon from now on.

Thanks for your support guys, the whole thing will be posted by tomorrow, 50 pages are up already.

5th Capsule to stop.

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 8, 2014, 10:01 AM
First off I want to thank everyone who supported me either by way of readership or actually helping me on Patreon.

All of you folks who read this for free here on dA owe a massive thank you to those who actually funded it. While you read it for free, they paid to make it happen, and I'm endebted to them. They are the best.

I promised that you guys here on dA would always have it for free here and I will honour that promise. I'll let you know when I feel it's the right time to do that.

As it stands now, I have sunk so much of my own funds into this project that I cannot afford to do it anymore even with the help of my Patrons on the patreon site.

Some of you might think that I can just work 24 hours a day, and that money grows on trees, and that I don't have mouths to feed. The truth is that I didn't have much work from UDON over the last few months, I have been coasting along on what i had saved, and now I have no more.

I have to start doing commissions, doing other work, and trying to get back into a position where I can do more pages.

When I asked for help, a lot of you helped and I appreciate that.

If you'll abandon me because you'll have to wait, then take care, you'll find plenty of other stuff out there for free better than mine.

If you'll stick around, I think you will really enjoy the amount of work I poured into cleaning up the story and fixing many other errors. Currently I have only another 3 or four pages to do and then it's done. I took down all the pages I posted to eliminate confusion and stop the links that direct you to my patreon site.

I hesitate now to even mention that you can buy it in colour to support me, but if you want you can, but most of you will wait for it to be free.

 I'm hoping I can recoup some of my losses by putting it on comixology and saving up enough to actually put it in print. Also in november I willdo all my commissions that are waiting.

As for the next story arc, I will do things differently.

SF UDON work, Conventions, and 5c update!

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 5, 2014, 11:24 PM
Eid Mubarak to all my friends who celebrated it in the last few days!

UDON work:

Looks like I will have more work from UDON this year and will be doing a bunch of stuff! I will keep you guys posted! Mostly  back up stories for now. These small jobs here and there will help me be able to keep working on 5th Capsule.


Also I will be trying to go to more conventions like Calgary Comic Expo, maybe Dubai, SDCC, and if I can NYCC. Hopefully by that point I can have a 5th Capsule book in hand, but prints costs are a bit high for me right now to pull it off.

5th Capsule Editing Update:

As you know I stopped posting 5c both here and on Patreon because the amount of errors were bothering me. I'm happy to say after a week of intense work I'm halfway through editing 5th Capsule for it's relaunch October 28th 2014! I will have more info as we get closer to the date! The finalized story arc will have a few additional pages numbering over 100..

The dA version of the 5C first story arc will come out December 28th 2014 and be reposted in a new easy to read format. All old pages will be taken down to avoid confusion between the versions. Some o fyou wil like the edits, so of you won't, but that's the way it's going to go. The pages will be posted in a 10 x 10 per page post. All in one day if I can, and then every 28th of the month you will get 7 - 10 pages more, depending how well pledges go to keep it going.

The only way you guys get to see 5C is through their donations, otherwise it would stop completely, so big thanks to my Patrons!

If you can't wait for that and want to help me make 5th Capsule happen please visit here!

In the meanwhile I will post some SF, Momo, and other goodies I have been working on!

I've had a lot of personal drama going on which has been demanding a lot of time, so I haven't been ble to post as much as I'd like too. I will try to put up some new stuff. Keep in mind I also post stuff on my Facebook as well, things I don;t post here!

If you want, go there and take a look too!…

Take care guys!

Commissions closed!

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 20, 2014, 7:30 PM
Commissions Closed!:

Thanks to all the people who are getting something done!

I'm going to get started on all the stuff right after I finish page 110 of 5th Capsule. This month I also have some new UDON work as well too, that I can't mention!

5th Capsule Second Story Arc:

I will restart on the second story arc of 5th Capsule with a new Patreon set up that will make it very very easy to come onboard at anytime to help me make it happen.

I will be re-editing the whole 110 pages with updated bubbles, less or no typos, and other improvements as well! Then I will make a colour version of the story, (from pages 68 - 110) available in PDF format when you join the next campaign to do the next 110 pages! Even if you only join for one month , you will get the updated pages to the first story arc to download and keep. If you want to help out past that point, it is up to you!

Each tier will have it own benefits and I am cooking up some very new and large bonuses for my heavy hitters.

The second story arc will be posted in BW on dA  1 - 2 months after the patreon site. I will also be putting tutorials and videos on the patreon site as well too, so it will not only be 5th Capsule! The only way I can continue is with your support, i get nothing from UDON on this, it's all been my own fund raising and risk taking. I know some people will cry that they have to pay, but if I don;t do this, it will just die out for another 7 years.

5th Capsule Printed Book?:

For the folks who don't like the idea of paying for a JPG, I am going to have a hardcopy book they can buy of the first story arc. The book will be 20USD for 110 - 120 pages, most likely colour. I'll throw in a head sketch too!

For those who don't like the idea of paying at all, I will still give it to you free, but you'll have to wait because I need fans to help me make it happen. If I were rich, this would not be a problem.

All these things are still being ironed out, and I'm shooting for December for the new campaign and to have a printed book for you guys! I will post big beautiful posters here on dA to alert you to the beginning of the next story arc and printed book availability!

Non 5C stuff:

I'm working on the commissions and some new UDON work, but on Tuesdays I go to joverines house to draw. Last time I was there I drew an X23 which I will post here at some point!

Here's a FB post of it! She's available!:…

I will be drawing these things in hope of seling them so that I can continue working on 5C.

Update for September

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 26, 2014, 8:07 AM
Sorry guys, my stomach has been really off over the last 30 hours and has kept me in bed. Other than going to get maintainence on my car, I wasn't able to work or get back to the studio to post pages. I'm feeling a bit better now, and I have to go to the bank and pay some bills etc, I will go to the office and post some new stuff!

In another very intersting note, it was last year Labour Day when I started working on 5C and now a year later I'm at page 100! Almost to the day since I'll be back at work on Monday, which is Labour Day! SO I guess this sickness was to delay it hahaha! I am almost finished colouring page 99 which I will post today on Patreon along with page 98.

You guys will get page 78 today as well. Patreon folks are 20 pages ahead in colour at a very intersting part of the story conflict wise!

5th Capsule hardcopy Book / 120+ pages planned:

After this part is done I will go back and revise various aspects of the story pages and fix mistakes before I make it into a book.

For all of you that want a book in your hands, I am working towards it, and what to have it done by November 2014. That's right, a small book in colour that I can mail out to you guys easily. No ads in it, just straight from my hands to yours. No Amazon, no middle man, after paying the for a few stamps 100% of your payment goes to 5th Capsule and the continuing of it! I hope to be stuffing a lot of envelopes this winter.

The book size will be trade paper back size, or like a 8.5 x 11 page folded in half, itll have have the colour pages included with the original BW art along with some extras. Soft cover. Price point will be 20USD, for over 120 pages, which I think is very reasonable. Patreon folks who gave for more than 20 pages will get it for free either shipped with their commissions, or shipped seperately for the <$5/page Patrons.

A large book of over 400 pages is the longterm goal, with UDON if they'll do it.

After the first story arc (109 pages), I'm going to do a short 10 page story that will be exclusive to Patreon, after which I will continue with the Gradius story line. That might be included in the book as well.

Commissions / Pages for sale:

Commissions might be possibilty in December I'm thinking, but again 5C Patrons have priority, however you're always more than welcome to ask about pages and covers for sale as well. The make a great gift and look very nice framed.

Go to my Facebook Artist page to see items I post for sale that I do not post here! '…

Huge Renovations

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 4:46 PM
So I have been away for a bit and it is due to the fact that I am trying very hard to completely renovate my washroom, kitchen and and lay tiles. I have been at it for the last 3 days straight and started after coming back form dropping my family in NJ for a bit. This way I could close down the kitchen and work.

I've torn out the washroom, repainted almost all the room, cleaned out the old tiles with a drill hammer, and am about 50% done.

I haven't been able to get anything done obviously, and I havent been back to the studio since where all my art and stuff is. I only have the next two weeks to get everything done, so it has taken priority!

I hope to be back at next week, so plese accept my appolgies!

The good ol' days

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 15, 2014, 11:04 PM
I remember a time when I would come on here routinely and vent all my feelings for no other reason than just that.

I think part of the reason I felt the need to do that here is because in my mind, you liking my art means potentially you like me as a person. This is not necessarily the case, but maybe in some instances it is.

Since a while back when all of us UDON folks went off to our own places away from a centralized studio, I've started to feel a sort of distance from the scene and my cohorts. As time went on, I got married and now have two kids, while manyof my coworkers don't and that is not a chastisement.

However, having a family of your own is a full time thing and one that needs constant communication and planning to get the most of. Many things that seem so unclear manifest themselves only well after the point, and all in all its a learning game that never stops.

Because of a number of factors, I also just turned off all external media out of sheer disinterest. I never watched tv and it has been turned off in our home for over one year. I want to throw it out, its and old CRT Trinitron. I stopped reading any manga or books, stopped playing any video games, and I don't have an interest in movies.

I said to myself, be the one to make the story and entertainment, not imbibe it. And as a result you have 5C.

What this means is that many a time I have nothing at all in common to talk to my cohorts about, since most of what they'll talk about is entertainment. I am concerned about my kids and my marriage and those are distant issues they don't care to relate to or can't even if they wanted to. I am not laying judgement, but I assure you it is a fact many folks nowadays go sailing into their thirties with no desire for marriage or kids whatsoever. That's their choice and I respect it.

But obviously, this creates a rift. I've been dubbed responsible, and I actually heard things like " you have kids? But you're a young guy!" when I was 32. It's lifestyle choice, and everyone is allowed to choice what they like and reap the rewards and consequences alike.

Now this is where you guys come in.

When you guys comment on my art, especially on 5th Capsule, I really get a lot of support. I mean, I look forward to your comments. My day is basically in complete silence, I just work and am left with my thoughts, I get home and spend time with my family, but again none of the things I love can be discussed with ease or understanding, and I am talking about art. My wife isn't an artist, and we talk mostly about family stuff and other things.

I've made my decisions on life and have no regrets, though it has left me a bit of an oddball in the industry in a way. I have no close friends that I talk to on the norm as we no longer have anything in common and my time is so limited and they live far away, but having you guys comment and interact really makes my day.

It really does help me a lot. You may see yourselves as fans, but a good deal of you I consider friends because you actually care what I'm doing, how I'm progressing, and my striving.

So here's to you guys, I appreciate you and hope all of you have great things in your life whatever you chose and that I can at the very least provide you with decent entertainment!

5th Capsule for you!

As the title states, I will begin to post 5th Capsule again on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays in BW!

Through the generous support of my Patrons, I have been able to keep working on the book. I just finished page 82 today, and the Patrons are on page 77! So far they have been enjoying it immensely!

On Patron you get the pages double sized and in full colour which you can print out with ease.

100 page BW 5th Capsule book!

I am looking into making a simple, just story, very basic but good quality 100 page 5C book. It's be soft cover and about the size of a trade paperback. I want to try and make this as affordable as possible, while still covering printing costs.

It won't be on Amazon, so Ill have to mail it out myself, or sell it at conventions next year. I want it to fit into a normal full sized envelope to facilitate easy and cheaper mailing than say with commissions.

I have to look into it, but I am very close to finishing the first 100 pages and want to get something out there for you guys. I realize that holding a book in your hands is much more satiating then seeing it here online.

In order to raise funds to keep the book going, I will offer it with a head sketch inside, and try to keep it affordable. The print run might be limited, but I am aiming to have something by autumn.

Usually at a con a head sketch is 20 bucks,  20 bucks should cover printing, and 10 for shipping and paypal fees, so lets say around 50 bucks signed w/ head sketch and delivered to your door. That price could change, but that is the number I'm thinking. Maybe Ill through in an exclusive side story of 5 pages in there too to make it rare. Keep in mind it will be fully reedited as well for easier reading.

Later on, when I get all of Gradius's story done, I have other side stories planned.  Ideas I had were how GG and Jess met, how Grad and Izan met, and other stuff too. I also want to get to the history of the capsules, but one thing at a time. A lot more politics and worldly issue with find their way into the story soon enough.

Grads story is about 300 - 400 pages. I want to do one of his uncle as well when he was Grads age, how he got married and moved up north etc races cars, etc.

Some loud thinking, but I want to make it happen!


Maybe I'll open for commissions in August, but I plan on also selling a bunch of Ibuki and SF pages for cheap to fund 5C!

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
