Website update - reviews

Introducing a whole new section to PatrickBrownArt.com.. REVIEWS!  /reviews/

As most of you know I'm a big gamer, most of my artwork is fan art based of my favorite games. So just to mix things up a bit I've decided to add a "reviews" section to the website, my web designer Jarrod Vansten came to me with the idea and I loved it. I know that most of the people who enjoy my fan art are big gamers, so it only made sense to do this.

I've teamed up with one of my oldest friends and best mate, Brent Jago, also with game guru, Matt Lillingston. The three of us will be bringing all kinds of reviews to the site, I'm really looking forward to it.

In other news I've just posted up my new piece of fan art based Grand Theft Auto V, you can find it here: /portfolio/gta-v-launch-piece/

I'm really excited for GTA V, only 6 days to go, I've been counting down the minutes. To celebrate the release I planned this picture, I'm planning many more...

For the past 7 years I've been using DeviantART.com to get my art out there to the world, I have managed to reach so many of you from so many different places and I've always been grateful. Now I have started a new chapter in my life, my own personal website, I'd like you to please take a tour through the site and soak it all in.

Here you'll see my full gallery with plenty more art to come, I also have a blog section that I will be updating regularly, I'll be able to post work in progress shots and even videos.

I would like to give a special thanks to Jarrod Vanstan for creating this website and making this happen. I really appreciate everything you've done, I'm very happy!
