Bit of an update.
Very, hugely sorry for the absense. I've been having a crazy ridiculous art block that started in August. After going to see The Symphony Of The Goddesses in London, I've been struck by inspiration.
So, juggling work, art, family and gaming is a crazy thing to do! I will reply to comments left on my stuff in due time.
I also got featured in a popular magazine here in the UK, called NEO magazine (issue 150) so i've got all kinds of feels :D

Thanks again for everyone's support and I'll be with you all again before you know it.
I'm now on Twitter like all the cool kids.

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    I've been a member of deviantART for 10 years now. It's been a long time.

  2. What does your username mean?
    Sarrus was my first OC that actually meant something to me, so I naturally chose that name.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Unique, Tired, Busy.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    I have both... Right though.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    kh cloud strife by sarrus
    My first ever digitally coloured picture too.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Digital art, mostly fan art from Video Games. Definitely followed closely by my own creations, I love creating and drawing my OC's

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    I would have to say learning is part of the fun towards mastering. But if I HAD to choose something it would be 3D modelling.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    Cloud and Leon by Lizeth
    According to dA, that one. :D

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Digital art, mostly of Video Games.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    Argh. That's an amazingly tough choice. I would have to say kilara as I owe so much to her for teaching me what I needed to improve my skills and get me going towards where I am now. Her work is always pleasant to see too, although not very active now :)

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    Hmm, tough choice again. I actually can't answer that. I am a very closed off individual. Apart from my wife and kids, I don't really interact with people. I'd love to meet and learn so much from so many people I look up to on dA.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    Again, kilara mainly because I probably would have taken a lot longer to learn and improve if I wasn't lucky enough for her to teach me things.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Computer and graphics tablet, hands down. I'm such a messy and indecisive artist, I'd wear through paper if I did my work traditionally :D

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    My mind. Everything I do is imagined as I go about my daily routines as a father and house husband.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    I would have to say when Robaato complimented my Esmerelda deviation. Someone I look up to a fairly large amount commenting on my work meant a lot.

Thanks to anyone who read all this. Now you know me a little better.
And to all you lovely people who are watching/favouriting/commenting on my work. Thank you, very, very much.

Hello! A few people have asked me about commissions, so here goes.
Current pricing is as follows.

Single character lines - $10

Single character with shading - $15

Single character with full colour and shading - $25

(Backgrounds and additional characters can be added on at various discounted prices to be negotiated via Note)

Payment via PayPal after initial rough sketch is done.

If you're wondering why the prices are quite low is because I am a family man and my time is limited each day so I can't guarantee the time frame of each commission (no longer than 5 days)

I look forward to doing business with you lovely people and hope to receive some notes for commissions :)

Hello, I seem to always end up not submitting many art pieces...
There are a few reasons of which I can't go into apart from the big project for Game-Art-HQ's RPG challenge. I'm doing an art tribute to Lost Odyssey, an amazing RPG that people should give a shot if they're fans of the genre.

Also, art trades. I want to get in the flow of drawing more so I'm going to open art trades. Hopefully I'll get some interest this time :).

Hello, thanks for the all the Birthday messages. I was on holiday over my birthday so I hadn't had the time to reply.

So, again making another apology for not posting stuff.

In an attempt to get myself drawing again more frequently I'm going to start something, I'm going to draw a monster from the Monster Hunter Franchise every fortnight and people can decide what they would like to see!
So get commenting and I'll start the first one on March 7th!

Sorry for the lack of updates, I'm a very busy man lately.
I am working on something that's nearly finished and should be done within a week or maybe even a few days.
  • Playing: MGS: Ground Zeroes [PS4]
So the year is drawing to a close, it already has for some people and I'd like to wish all my watchers and viewers a happy New Year!
I couldn't have pushed myself further without your support. So, thank you and may 2015 bring many amazing things.
  • Playing: MGS: Ground Zeroes [PS4]
So yeah, my graphics tablet has decided its wages weren't enough, struck and starved to death... Or just stopped working.

No idea when I can replace it, not any time soon though so I will not be submitting any new pictures until that's sorted :(

Not done a decent journal entry in a while.
Looks like that will still be a little longer too :)

Anyway, I've been practicing here and there, distracted by family, health conditions and I was thinking. I definitely need to do more art trades, I love doing them. As I have looooooooads of family responsibilities and whatnot I'll have to be slightly picky. But anyway,

If you're interested in doing an art trade, leave a comment.

Right, I've decided to change a few things on here (of which I'm in the process of doing)

Got a pretty good fan art piece going at the moment, not being modest but I am quite impressed with it, and that's rare for me. Time is short at the moment though so I have no idea when I can finish.
I've got 2 more entries in Game-Art-HQ's ongoing tributes to Final Fantasy and Zelda.

I'm also going to get a commission sheet up and hopefully fuel my bad gaming habit :)

As usual, thanks to the people that look at my work and watch me. HIGH FIVE!... Or a tennis ball, whichever suits your needs.

Another one!

1.The first 20 people that comment on this journal will be featured below and I'll choose three deviations I like most from their gallery! 
2.If you comment, you must to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) and three pieces of my art on the first place. 
3.The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

So, I've got myself back together, seeing what I can do (a lot quicker now too) I've put more time aside for art work, in fact I've started a new personal project which should have been done a long time ago, when it will get finished is another matter though. Time will be very short the next few weeks, my daughter turns 2 and I have a friend staying for a week. Busy, busy.

I will work to get a commissions sheet/sample ready for next month, for those of you who would possibly be interested in a commission get commenting! :)

So, complications after another and I have now lost all my artwork after a catastrophic computer fuck up.
I really don't have the mental energy to deal with it at the moment so I don't think I'll be carrying on my work.

If anyone has ever had this happen to them before, let me know. I could sure as hell use some encouragement.
  • Playing: Project X Zone [3DS]
I'm still here!

On the plus side I'm inspired more than ever again, I believe playing Project X Zone and recently having played through Bravely Default reminded me of the time I was always drawing and full of ideas inspired from when gaming wasn't all DLC and money making.

Working so f#####g hard on a Super Metroid tribute entry for :icongame-art-hq: which should be done in the next few days (time permitting). I've learnt so much from messing around with backgrounds and using hard light for shading instead of colour dodge and multiply.
  • Playing: Bravely Default [3DS]
As I have taken part in :iconluketheripper:'s OC feature journal, it's my turn to spread the love.

1. For each person who comments on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them.

2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (or original journalist) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone.

Although it's a self portrait in a way, it's not often I've seen a more "primal" looking OC.


2.
So, typing with a todler on my lap is quite difficult...

Anyway, Sorry to anyone who has messaged me in the past 2 weeks I've been using Chrome on a mobile and apparently it's not sending the damn replies. No wonder I wasn't getting replies from commission requests :/

Tumblr raffle still going on at sarrus.deviantart.com so far there's not even a single person re-blogging so that's a bit embarrassing :D
  • Playing: Muramasa Rebirth [PSVita]
So after the huge lack of interest on the 18k page view commission I'm opening it up as a free commission to the first comment on this journal  (You must already be a watcher).

Also I'm doing a raffle on sarrus.tumblr.com

So, get to it. If there's any people who enjoy my work anymore :)
