Z. Rhett Akers
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
I have an AAS degree in Visual Communications from ITT Technical Institute. I was going for a BA degree in game design, but they shut down the program while I was half way through school. I now make web comics with my skills and stuff while making independent games.

I participate in IGDA (International Game Designer Association) Club and Indie Game Night meetings, as well as the annual Global Game Jams that take place in Salt Lake City. (Create a game in 48 hours) Comic strips are a passionate hobby on the side of what I do cause' I just like to spread laughs. I started cartooning when I was 15 in high school and always loved to create comic strips.

I do all sorts of stuff, from modeling, graphics design, game art, traditional art, concept art, photo manipulation, cartooning, 3D Modeling and Animation and more. And of course, I am one hell of a musician. Way better musician than I am an artist, in my opinion.

I work at a call center doing tech support for Vivint. But I don't want you to know that. But if this info helps anyone out there feel better about themselves, let em' use it. :D… My youtube BANDCAMP - EASY FREE DOWNLOAD OF MY MUSIC!!!… My music on Reverb Nation (BE A FAN AND THRASH YOUR HEAD!!!) My twitter My Facebook Page My online Graphics Designer portfolio

Here's the song my bard plays in DnD to give all other companion characters a +2 to hit… The Trooper by Iron Maiden... And the DM would grant more bonuses because that was his favorite song in high school as well as mine. Iron Maiden was my heavy metal breast milk growing up, I learned metal by playing their songs. Now I'm a totally awesome thrasher.

Print preference: CMYK High Gloss
Favourite genre of music: Thrash Metal, Punk Rock, Heavy Metal, Hair Metal
Favourite style of art: Fantastic Realism
Operating System: Macintosh MacBook Pro
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Skin of choice: Caucasian
Favourite cartoon character: Beavis and Butthead
Personal Quote: "Git er' done!" ~Larry the Cable Guy
"Where do you get these ideas, Butthead?" "They come from my wiener, huh huh huh..." ~Beavis and Butthead
First off, i just gotta say, I was playing an awesome game last night called Dishonored and one of my favorite, funner than hell features in the game is the ability to spawn a pack of rats who eat away at people until they're nothing but a puddle of blood on the ground. And the whole experience of this made me totally forget i had a crossbow, a revolver handgun... And all that stuff. And it also made this song play in my head:

now that that interesting fact is out of the way, I've gotta CLEAN UP MY WEB CONTENT!

Geez, I had THOUSANDS of messages whilst coming back on here... And all that RhettCandy stuff has gotta GO. I LOATHE my history in that I created the image of RhettCandy... Like this video I created right here.

RhettCandy was my learning material, I'll just say. That garbage... That garbage was me LEARNING how to make something... how to make something that has taste, and compelling content.

My NEW stuff? It's going to be under the image of Brain Surgeon Studio. And thank HEAVENS I don't have a large fan base yet... I've always wanted a thick fan base. But wow, man... I'm SO glad i didn't have one. Because they'd see all the pure CRAP that i have posted in the past. My art... Was garbage! Because, well... It was me... LEARNING.

I'm deleting my old youtube channel. And I'm going to put worthwhile content onto my new channel here...…

I'll also make a short video on WHY I deleted my old channel. Especially because I butchered it with all of my belching videos... And I get weird, gay men and little kids that make all sorts of really strange, absurd requests. Which, you may imagine, is not too... Um... Well, lets just say there's no way in HELL I'll make those requests. I try to make a video of a bunch of random belching... Just to be funny. But look what happens. I'm sorry, but I'd rather be known for things i do that actually have taste and talent, thank you very much...

I'm gonna go Premium with my membership with DA... And I'm going to change my username. To Z Rhett Akers... Just simply myself.

I've gotta upload more content that looks cooler than what I've got... I've been into digital painting a lot in photoshop lately... i've improved a lot. So I've got a lot of work to upload. Lol!
