Hi there,

I reckon all of you who love Artbooks know that feel and, to the odds of others, your OCD when it comes to taking care of your beloved books and keeping them nice and shiny. So frequently I just move them all out of my shelf to wipe off some dust and stuff - and if there is one little insect crawling on a page or a book I really get serious issues about it (if I was an Anime character imagine some sort of overreacting that's typical for such kind of characters).
But at the same time one notices that if there is something you hold very dear, it is a good thing as it shows that you have some sort of a responsibility-feeling or so that keeps you from letting things going downhill, or to prevent you neglecting what has to be taken care off.

Even if it's just an artbook, but I guess you know what I am referring to.

Apart from being a massive OCD with my artbooks (and pencils, and anything I care about) I really look forward to get some new ones (mostly "The art of" books for games) and hopefully, some day in the distant future, I can still open and enjoy these as if they were brand new. I am really eager to see how designs and influences might change over the next maybe 30 years. And hell I'd need a whole room solely for my artbooks by then. :D

Hope you're doing well so far and enjoy your weekend.

- Dave

Brollonks has started a donation pool!
25 / 800,000
Support for my Brush-Creation.

If you like my brushes, you can support ANY amount of points to make sure I'll find enough time to upload many brushes for free. Keep in mind that 80 points are 1$, so the number might look incredibly high.

In any case:

The points goal doesn't have to be reached, there will be more brushes showing up no matter how much support I get.

-It only depends on the amount of donations how fast they will show up.

Upcoming Brushes:

- Graphitechalk (with blendingbrushes via smudgetool included) - free (in progress)

- New Chalkbrushes (at the planning stage

I appreciate your support and many thanks to all who supported me by purchasing the "Dave's Camelhair Brush Set Eliteversion 2012" Thanks! I am only able to find much more time for new brush-creations because of YOUR help.

Thank you for watching me.

You're welcome, I'm glad to see another helpful gallery filled with reference images. :)

Let me know if you need any particular references for things. I'm happy to help.

That's very kind of you. Do you want to receive ideas for collaborations (means that I am requesting particular references that will show up in specific work, which results in your gallery being featured when I upload the work) via note?
It should be better working this way. :) I'll contact you, as I indeed have some need of particular references for my character development.

These characters are knights, assassins, thieves, adventurers, etc. in different situations.

What I am mostly looking for are the poses, so it doesn't require a specific outfit. However, if it's fun for you taking special costumes or clothing for these references - it is fine by me.
