Hope everyone's been keeping well!

I realise over the years I've gotten increasingly shite at managing my DA 'routine'. Quite frankly I find myself balacing my time with my client work, teaching endeavour(which is turning out to be a really fulfilling new chapter in life) and working on side projects that I actually find it increasingly difficult to sit down and respond to comments here like I used to. Its always been a thing of mine to respond as much as possible and I still aspire to do so when I can, but I guess I'm in a pretty frantic pace of life at the moment. And I hope that my lack of replies do not come off as apathy or worse. I enjoy reading all the comments and critique and am thankful for your time in letting me know how you feel about the work in general. Especially for my work on hardcore IP like 40K... the level of 'fangasm' as I call it never ceases to blow my mind time and again. You guys always light that fire under my ass and I hope in my own way I never let you down.

As such, I hope that its a bit more obvious that when it comes to posting work I've done, I've always put more emphasis into the description section-- elaborating on my thoughts and process to share as much of my personal experience in art as possible for those of you who are more keen to know. To my mind, its the best I can do to make up for not being able to respond personally to your often colourful commentary. :p

I'm very thankful for all the support over the past decade here on DA(wow has it been that long... u_u), so much wouldn't have happened without it, and I can't wait to share the stuff I've been working on the side in greater detail, soon enough. :)

Have a great weekend!

Damn, really amazing stuff, I still have a very long way to go, still learning and practicing to achieve my dream of becoming a concept artist/illustrator. Seeing this kind of professional artworks really prompt me to work even harder. Did you by any chance went to fzdschool?

Your 40k artwork is really fantastic. I think it does honor to the 40k I loved as a child while pushing it into new realms of both realism and imagination. Thanks for your treatment of 40k.

love your new stuff kai , keep 'em coming 
Do you do book covers? I just love your style, the gritty battle scenes and action, and I think would make an excellent cover! However I am a student with no income, but I am willing to discuss more (in a note perhaps?)
He does do book covers! :D  Several of the "Black library" books (aka 40k novels) have his art on them. :)
I know that lol, I think the question was more of "are you willing to do my book cover" however I probably can't afford it and I'd fear it look too much like 40k. But thanks for the reply!
