Some updates , some news and a potato.

 Hey guys , i havent uploaded anything here for some time but i was in a tight spot. I am working on some commissions that i cant show right now , sorry about that! However i was indeed drawing some stuff of my own and it is time to share them with you.

This big baby is what i currently call "Alien Market". Its big , its fat and im propably gonna make a poster out of it. Right now i have finished the sketch and im lineworking but i included the sketch so you can see where i am going. Im really excited about this piece! I love drawing aliens.

This is another big fat piece more than a meter wide. Its Ragnarok the Apocalypse of norse mythology. As a vivid fan of anything viking , including folk/viking metal , i was very hyped about drawing this. Its pretty much in the same position as the Alien Market , sketch done and starting to linework. Truth is i havent worked on this for some days , there is something i dont like about it but i cant figure it out yet. Hmmm.... Anyway this image will feature Thor vs Jormungandr , Odin vs Fenris , Surtr and his giands of flame and a shit ton of troll fighting norse heroes. All scenes are inspired by the actual mythos of Ragnarok. I'll make sure to get over the block and finish this cause its a piece im dieing to have in my portfolio.

Thats a character done for an art trade between me and my friend Ibrahem Swaid. Its a Blood Angel who has turned to chaos. Some work remains , namely add a power sword , a bolter on the other hand and the jump pack on his back. Plus colour etc etc. Will be done soon.


These are some characters i drew when i was really busy and couldnt find time for a bigger piece. I call them mini-knights. The plan is to draw a little dude for every letter of the english alphabet. The ones you see now are Axe knight , Boxer Knight , Clown Knight , Devil Knight and Eternal knight. I have even gone as far as to make a little story for each one and come up with a universe for them. The rest will be done for sure , its really fun drawing these folks ^_^

On other news , i got frontpaged in NewGrounds again! Its the second time in a single month as the DiMorteli were frontpaged at the 7th  of August. I cant really express how i feel about it. It fills me with joy and makes me wanna work even harder! Its a huge push for me and i thank all the people who trust in me and my art! It means a lot!

And , last but not least

Till next time!

 Yep , its true , i drew pokemans.. I wanted to relax and draw something silly. I picked my two favourites from when i was a kid , Lickitung and Haunter. I also made an animated gif to show the process of making the image. Not anything flashy for now :)

I hope its helpful to someone! Cya next time!

NewGrounds , a webpage where i showcase my portfolio , has a Youtube show that is meant to showcase artworks from various artists. One of the artworks showcased each week , the one that is considered the best , is awarded with a feature in the front page. I earned this reward with my DiMorteli piece!

Totem collab'13

My part of the Totem Collaboration , In Newgrounds. Many artists gather and each creates a 200x500px picture , then a moderator puts all the pictures together to create a looong totem. I wish i had more time to put on it , i really do , but with 2 album cover commissions , i am choking  But , since it was a small picture , i could afford some spare time to it. I will post the link to the complete totem once it is finished , i think the mod said its gonna be in one week.

Here's the original forum in NewGrounds

Oni sketch

Hey guys. This is what i've been up to

Its a character inspired from the Oni , japanese ogres/demons , very iconic in their culture and folklore. I wont be able to finish him for some time cause right now i got to do two album covers ( yes i got both jobs after all :D )

As you can see i have first drawn a quick sketch , to determine the pose and mood of the character. I then went on creating the final linework. I always start with the head and leave the limbs for last. Its useful cause this way i can change my mind on how i will position his arms and feet and even give him another weapon etc. Well , i wont get into much detail for now , more of him later , now i gotta work!

See you soon!
