This was my first piece that I ever got published! Part of the Illustrators of the Future contest,
This piece was my illustration to the short story "Planetary Scouts" by Stephen Sottong, published in "Writers of the Future Anthology vol. 29".[link]
If you haven't entered the contest you absolutely should they have quarterly entry periods and you can't be published yet.[link]
Also thank you to the deviantart community over the years for your support it means a lot! This community has been there since the start of my exploration into the realm of digital art and continues to be a source of excitement, brotherhood, and inspiration! You guys ROCK!
