The Wicked Kingdom Kickstarter: Final Week!
A huge thank you to everyone who's backed the project on Kickstarter - it's closing in on $100k! There's now less than a week left to grab a copy of the deck or the art book; check it out at http://tinyurl.com/wickedkingdomlaunch

Wicked Kingdom ART BOOK available!
Some awesome news out of the Wicked Kingdom Kickstarter - there is now an art book!
I poured hundreds of hours of drawing and painting into the Wicked Kingdom project; I've been hoping to assemble these images into an art book since the very beginning, but wasn't sure how the deck itself would be received. The flood of support for the project has outstripped all my expectations, and now that we're approaching the 50k mark, the artwork has finally earned itself a showcase outside the confines of the card deck!
The art book will be a 72 page softcover (6.625 x 10.25") volume featuring all of the art and writing from the Wicked Kingdom project, along with process write-ups, work-in-progress snapshots, and notes on the creation of the traditionally-painted artwork for th
The Wicked Kingdom deck is on Kickstarter!
Huge news this week: after a year and a half of painting, my illustrated playing card deck is available for purchase on Kickstarter! I'm so thrilled to finally be bringing this project to life. Check out the finished artwork and pick up a deck of your own at http://tinyurl.com/wickedkingdomlaunch . And thanks to everyone who's liked, shared, and commented along the way!
Wicked Kingdom is my first large-scale personal project - it's a step away from my usual commercial art, and a chance to create a body of work more in line with my own vision. A little bit about the project:
Printed by the USPCC, Wicked Kingdom is an art-rich 54-card poker deck, featuring dual-identity face cards with a narrative twist and obsessively detailed, hand-painted artwork throughout.
Hand-drawn pips, elegantly watermarked number cards, and unique not-quite-two-way backs add to the intensely illustrated flavor of the deck.
Wicked Kingdom is more than just a
Painting Process Video: Queen of HeartsI get a lot of questions about my traditional-media painting process. My main secret: a super-detailed pencil underdrawing, a ton of layers, and a crazy mix of media. I recently filmed the complete painting process for the Queen of Hearts - the sixth painting in my Wicked Kingdom series of playing cards. Check it out below!
The pencil underdrawing:
The underpainting in ink, watercolor, and white charcoal:
The final oil painting:
I also post written tutorials covering all the details on my materials, techniques, and ideation process! You can get access to each and every tutorial from my Wicked Kingdom series through Patreon:

WICKED KINGDOM is my first large-scale personal project - a series of traditionally-painted playing card illustrations leading up to a complete, playable poker deck which I'll be releasing via Kickstarter in late 2015/early 2016.
In what I'm hoping will be big news for my fellow artists, I'm documenting my working process as I go, and putting together some serious art tutorials for this project.
You can find my first tutorial (covering my painting process for the King of Spades) here: http://www.wickedkingdomdeck.com/?show=kingofspades
AND, if you'd like to see more of this type of content in the future, you can show your support on Patreon, where I'll be providing patrons with process tutorials for EVERY painting, along with high-res images and early access to works-in
Art Book: InspiredRemember my Hunt for the Black Lotus painting? For those whose browsing histories don't span all the way back into the mists of late 2013, the piece was prompted by the ArtOrder Inspiration Challenge, masterminded by Jon Schindehette and juried by a selection of awesome illustrators and art directors.
At long last, the challenge has borne its inevitable fruit: the limited-edition art book showcasing the selected artists & artwork, Inspired, is now available in the ArtOrder store.

Painting Process video: Tam LinTime-lapse of my painting process for Tam Lin - a traditional media redo of one of my earlier digital paintings. A complete write-up of the process (including materials and techniques) can be found at http://www.wyliebeckert.com/process.
This video represents about 40 hours of painting, with an additional 20 hours or so (not captured) devoted to the initial pencil underdrawing.
Limited Edition Prints: Colder Wind
Huge, awesome news - today marks the launch of the ArtOrder Artists Series! If you haven't heard of this project already, it's an ongoing series of limited-edition prints, curated by art director Jon Schindehette and featuring the artwork of a whole roster of awesome artists.
I'm honored to be the featured artist for the launch - limited edition prints of my painting Colder Wind are now available in the ArtOrder store, and are being offered for pre-sale at 20% off this week only.
If you were at Illuxcon this year, you may have already seen a few of the early-stage poster proofs that Jon was toting around. These are some really nice large-scale limited editions - signed, numbered, nice paper, the whole deal. The image is one of my current favorites - painted straight out of an intensely inspiring week at Illustration Master Class, it
Having an Online Presence"All artists need to have an online presence," I said.
"Easy for you to say, Popular Artist™," they said.
"I had to work hard to get 'popular'," I said
"But it's SOOO hhaaaaAAARD," they said
"That's what I just said," I said.
After making my status posts about making an online presence, I figured I'd make a sort of guide. I made a very generic list of things you should do as an artist who wants to get their name out there or "get popular". A lot of people were like, "but I've done all of that". But chances are, you haven't. There's a lot that goes into this and it takes a long ass time. Don't think it's just gonna happen in a month.
So I made a guide based on my own experience and what worked for me (as an illustrator/artist. Some of these tips are more specific than others and some of these will not necessarily work for you. Everyone's different. Keep in mind this is mostly for illustrators/animators/story artists etc. This won't work fo

Health update: I got cancer.Hello. ♥
Thank you so much for the support on the last journal, it truly moved my heart and I re-read the comments every so often, to gain strength. You all truly makes me feel so blessed. ;;;;;
Link to old journal on what was going on.
But however, I got an update on what was wrong with my Thymus, which almost caused my suffocation. Unfortunately it has turned into a malignant cancer tumour (Thymoma), over 7cm big, that keeps growing and presses on my throat.
A thymus is a small gland that everyone is born with, it is what takes cares of our immune system as babies. When we are around the age of 2, our spleen is supposed to take over, and then the Thymus shall shrink to almost non existence.
However in my case, the Thymus has not shrunk, and it has been in charge of my immune system for 22 years, which is not it's job. (No wonder I get sick 24/7)

Lets talk about this site that colors your lineartYes you read the heading correct, OK, so this is pretty damn cool. A little bird showed me this website that colors lineart for you, and the end result is surprisingly fantastic, but also has some misses that could be improved. If they tweak those problems, this could be the best thing since my 3rd divorce. I highly recommend you guys try it out.
BOOM! This is the website.>> http://paintschainer.preferred.tech/ <<
So this is what you do, you put in an image, I tried Jpg as well as PNG and PSD, PSD don't work at all so don't bother with that. And then it will automatically colorise for you on what color it wants, which looks pretty damn swell. And you can tweak it by putting in colors of where you think should have those colors. And after about a minute it will show up with the end result. I also had difficulty getting it to work on Firefox so I switched to Chrome and it worked. Anyw
