"Artifex Conatum" began with a simple idea; that art is meant to be shared. In the 2011-2012 school year, I took courses in Adobe Photoshop CS.5 and Adobe Illustrator, and so began an unexpected hobby. In the time since, I have created photoshop art and even began tinkering around as an amateur videographer. I create my art for my own enjoyment, but I discovered (somewhat unexpectedly) that others enjoyed it as well. So now I'm doing it for any and all to enjoy. I enjoy what I do, I enjoy the results, and I wish to share that enjoyment with all who wish to experience with me. http://djace88.deviantart.com/gallery/

Another Star Trek design; this is an idea I had, inspired by the Sovereign-X class dreadnought, and the Galaxy-X class. I was always interested in the concept of a heavy phaser weapon, and the Centaur class inspired me to wonder what the Akira would look like with Sovereign-style nacelles. Well, these are my quick-and-dirty attempts to answer both questions for myself lol

This is a bit of playing around that I did with some Star Trek starships. I don't own copywrite on any of the images used, but I do own this particular composite image. :)

A long time ago, I designed this for a friend. It may have taken some time for it to happen, but it's awesome to finally see it in playmat form!

The last digital printing commission I had. I think it came out pretty well! What do you all think?

This is an art I designed to showcase my own versions of the energy symbols from the Pokemon Trading Card Game. I own copywrite on everything in this image except the starfield background.

The only piece of art in this that I did not heavily edit was the water - everything else required alot of editing to get it all to work together, but I have to say I love the final product!

[This is a playmat I designed on commission, and this is a the printed version of it]

I designed this mat solely to advertise the art style featured in the Pokemon used. It doesn't have a name, but is commonly called "Light Art". Either way, I had a lot of fun doing this. :)

Just something I threw together for fun. I've always found the Rayquaza/Deoxys fusions to be fascinating, so this is my tribute to that. I personally designed the double-helix background, my logo (of course) and the fusion Pokemon in the bottom right hand corner. The rest are the work of other artists.

This is my first (paid) commission. It's a playmat art featuring the Pokemon Darkrai (left) and Yveltel (right). Took me about a week to design, then another week to tweak to my own satisfaction :)

Previously I designed an Energy Art based on the various types of Energy in the Pokemon Trading Card Game. Unfortunately, the symbols were copywritten material. However, everything used in this new version is either open-source (not copywritten) or something I made myself. :)

This was my first "professional" work. I was competing with another artist for a book cover contract. I wasn't selected, but I'm proud of my result regardless.
