For my Loyal Followers, and Lovers (You know who you are...)

I really hope you guys know how much I put into this whole section of our online world. Your input has excelled my motivation both here but also in life ten fold. I was promoted at work and scored an entire contract for my company. I signed up for college, after  much deliberation and putting it off for a year or so. I'm working out again, trying to get back the 20+ lbs of muscle I've lost since the army. Thank you all, you've done so much for me whether you meant to or not.

I thought you should be aware of the implications of kindness and support. How much it can effect those around you. So next time it seems like it isn't worth smiling at a stranger whose having a terrible night on the side of the highway with a busted tire, a nagging wife (whose legs just won't stop until her tiny shorts),  and the rain coming down hard... Stop on by, hope its not an ambush to get your boots, and show them people are all in this together.

On that note, you all (except one of you) voted for me to post some of my drawings... I'm a bit shocked at the decisive vote, but I also won't complain! As well, I'm terribly sorry for the day off I took, but what with the promotion, and the sleepless past 2 weeks, i decided it was worth it, and you would forgive me ;)

Now, as to the pictures, I do commissions and so forth for various online games. People who want their characters drawn for some sort of real-life return to the years they spent playing the same game. Mutefox, there are a couple you might enjoy especially :) They're ALL taken with various digital cameras, and they're all done with a mechanical pencil. I've been drawing for a almost 2 decades, so no promises that these pictures are anywhere close in timeline. But, despite that, I hope you enjoy them, and perhaps this will give you a little insight about who this Janus Kane character is. Without further ado, here they are. And thank you again my friends.







With all my love,
JKane

  5. What the hell is this? I didn't vote for this! :)

    I imagine you can make some tidy contract money from the amount of gamers out there. I would of loved to have ANY of these back when the ol' table top role-playing was enjoyed. Nice work.

    Also, and I know this speaks more of where I hang out online than anything else, but it is weird to read someone say something along the lines of "No really, it's possible for humanity to work if we put ourselves in each others boots."

    Sure, those boots were probably stolen in an ambush down the road, but no sense on focusing on that.

  7. Nice, post. And, you're welcome! I seriously do enjoy coming here. And I'm glad things are going so well for you! Congrats on the promotion, starting college, and working out! I seriously need to start working out again. I used to be extremely fit and actually used to fight for a living. Two back surgeries later and I'm not too happy or in that great of shape :(

    Keep up the awesome work man. And I'll be more than happy to check out your friend's blog and be a supporter!

  10. Damn Kane, nice pictures, great to see another aspect of your artistic side in this post. Also, congratulations on your promotion and the decision to get back into shape.

    I'm going to start swimming, and actually try to learn how to do it properly this time and not just flail around. Again thanks for all the constructive comments you post on my posts, always interested to see what you've got in store for the future!

  16. I love your drawings, but damnit, Kane, I came here for advice on blowing things u... nevermind, I see the other post now.

    Seriously, though, I can`t touch a pen to a pad of paper without drawing a dick, so I`m easily impressed by the work of others, especially when they`ve got an obvious talent, such as your own.

    Keep up the good work!
