Hey everyone!

We're a couple days past from May 4th, but I just wanted to shout out a massive :heart: rvmp :heart: rvmp :heart: rvmp THANK YOU:heart: rvmp :heart: rvmp :heart: rvmp   to everyone who shared my Star Wars art on the special DeviantArt journal entry. I really wanted to send everyone individual thank yous on their posts, but by the end of the day, it just added up to be too much for me to get through. But you guys rock. Like, seriously. It's crazy how awesome the DA community has been to me over the years, and I just appreciate it so much. Thanks for continuing to inspire me, and May the Force Be With You All!

Go Yoda    

All the Best,

Jake
Got some original pieces up for sale over in my web store, with more to come soon! Fans of my Xenogears series of paintings might be pleasantly surprised. ;) Check out what's available here!

Couldn't make it to #starwars Celebration this year? That's okay - you can still grab a piece of the show with these limited edition lithographs featuring Darth Maul! Now available through The Art of Jake Murray web store!

First of all, let me say: 70,000 page views! THANK YOU!!


Thanks so much everyone for taking the time to check out my galleries! I really appreciate all the views, comments, and favorites I receive, and try to make every effort to thank everyone individually as much as I'm able to. I love all the interesting little conversations I've had as a result of people enjoying (or not enjoying) my art. So thank you so much and keep those conversations coming!

Solaris Books had me write a guest post on their blog about the process of creating the cover art for their recently released, "Macaque Attack" by Gareth L. Powell. If you're interested in seen how it all came together, check out the link here!: www.solarisbooks.com/post/553

ImagineFX Magazine has posted some digital art tutorials I created for them online! If you're interested in learning how I go about solving some specific artistic problems, check them out via the links below!

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone out here for checking out and supporting my craft! DeviantArt has been a wonderful place of inspiration and support ever since I joined as a meager highschool kid about 10 years ago (how the time flies!). Since then, I've grown so much as an artist and am very blessed to be able to do what I love for a living. I can only hope that some of my work inspires others in the same way I continue to be inspired here after so many years. So again, THANKS EVERYONE! Hug 

All the Best,

Jake
Just added a handful of new prints for sale over at my INPRNT shop (now with free worldwide shipping through Sunday)! If your walls could use a few more monkeys with guns or toaster walking robots, check it out! More to come throughout the week!
Thanks so much to everyone who purchased my limited edition series of Xenogears inspired prints! It has been incredibly humbling to receive such support from so many fans of one of my favorite games of all time. :D
If you've been thinking about purchasing a limited edition Citan print from me, now is your last chance as I only have ONE left in stock! As with the previous two prints in my Xenogears themed series, once I'm out, that's it! No more will be printed and sold (or given away). If you'd like to get your hands on it, act now and head over to my online store!

And of course, thanks to everyone who has purchased prints from me thus far! Your support has been truly humbling!

In the spirit of keeping things tidy and business-like, I've finally created an official Facebook Page for my work! I'll be using it for artwork and promotional updates so that I can keep my personal Facebook page dedicated to the usual embarrassing photos, as it should be. I'd be mighty appreciative if you'd check out the new page and (if you're so inclined) "Like" it. I'd be SO appreciative, in fact, that anyone who "likes" the page before 12:00 AM on 9/21/13 (this Saturday) will be entered for a chance to win a free sketch of their choice!

Do you play any of the collectible card games that I create artwork for? Would you like me to shamelessly sign my name and/or doodle all over your cards? Well head over to my art blog to find out how!
It's been a long time coming, but I've finally continued my blog series of digital painting tutorials with "Texture - Part 2"! If you're interested in learning how you can make your digital paintings more closely resemble the look of a traditional oil painting, check it out along with my other tutorials over at my blog!

I usually try to post a thank you after every comment, but with "Xenogears - Fei" getting a Daily Deviation, there's just too many for me to get to in a reasonable amount of time. So I'll just say here THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT EVERYONE! It was quite a surprise and I'm very humbled by all the positive feedback on my work. Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year, and I'll see you in 2013! :)

Thanks again to everyone who has supported my foray down memory lane with these Xenogears pieces. The fan response has been really great and it's really awesome to see that there's still love out there for this classic game! I still have plenty of prints of my Elly and Citan portraits, so if you're a fan of those characters and would like them for your walls, follow the link to my online storefront and place your order!

That's right Xenogears fans. If you've been holding off on getting a Fei print of your own, the time to act is NOW! I am down to just 2 more prints left in stock and I promise you that once they are gone, that's it. There won't be any second print runs. So head on over to my web store and pick one up!
For all you Xenogears fans out there (I know, there's only like 100 of us) I'm pleased to announce that pre-orders are now being accepted for high quality prints of my Elly painting! Click on over to my online storefront for more details on how you can get your hands on one of these very limited items!

And I'm also happy to say that my next Xenogears painting is coming along smoothly and, my schedule allowing, will hopefully be finished very soon!

Have a great weekend everyone. :)

Things have been super busy work-wise for the past couple of months which has left me little time to really jump into the next Xenogears painting I've been planning. BUT, for anyone who might be awaiting the next piece, I can promise you that it IS coming. Definitely not tomorrow; or next week; hell, probably not any time before the New Year. But once the holidays clear out and the weekends open up again *crossing my fingers*, there will be some SERIOUS Xeno-painting taking place, let me tell you. Thanks so much to everyone who's left comments or faved my work. I really appreciate it even if I can't respond to each one. You guys are great!

That said, I still have some Fei prints for sale over at my online shop. If you know of any Xeno-fans that might enjoy a unique (and limited) gift this year, hop on by before they're all gone!
