Welcome to my page!


:iconmirz123: This is the alternate account of Mirz123. You can expect to see a lot of varied art here, such as literature, web-design, and traditional art. You'll see alternate pixelling such as digital dolls and some edgy stamps and emotes. This account is also where I publish episodes of my fiction serial, "Relativity." Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy the art.

Edit: In January 2013, I received seniority status on this account, apparently for my work in the community and promoting others art. It's a great honor to be "double ticked" and I thank everyone for their support.
Lots of writing. Lots of pixelling. Getting ready for the side-story anthology for Relativity due out April 15, 2014.

Relativity



RELATIVITY is a comic fiction serial. Based around "Team Torrent" a group of 4 superheroes who defend Gale City. The difference between this series and most superhero works is that it focuses primarily on the people behind the mask. It follows their lives and how they juggle day to day living while donning a costume to fight crime at night.

Lost and Found Scene 1 - Relativity Episode 1The light above the vanity flickered, throwing the room into a series of shadows. Babs Stone tapped the plastic casing with her finger, hoping to jiggle the bulb back into place. The room fell into complete darkness. After a moment, the light snapped back on, shining bright and steady. The prostitute leaned back towards the mirror.
Pulling up her chin, Babs checked her throat carefully. While she didn’t have a policy against rough stuff, she didn’t like when her clients left marks. It made it difficult when picking up another john, not to mention she simply didn’t like bruising on her neck. Satisfied, she tousled her long platinum blonde hair so it framed her face, then twisted open a cylinder of Fire Engine Red and  smeared it across her lips. She could hear shuffling and smiled at the thought of the man on the other side of the door.
While she had several regulars, Babs liked Denny the best. He was always clean and smelled nice. More than that, he always called

   Melody twisted her mouth to the side and closed the newspaper. It was filled with the same old stuff. Aside from a story about the city hiring 200 more police officers, nothing was going on that was important enough to keep an eye on.
   Resting her chin on her hand, she sighed. The lull in activity might have been welcome if things in her own life were more interesting. As it was, they were getting more boring by the minute.
   The bell rang. Sara Wolff smiled as she approached the counter. "Good morning."
   Though it was a customer, Melody couldn't help but feel disappointed it was just her friend. "This is the third time this week you've been in. I don't think you've ever come in that often before."
   The redhead pulled her wallet from her purse. "Since Greg and I got married, I've been staying i

CANDY CORN -- In Gale City, Halloween is more trick than treat. One of the busiest crime nights of the year, Team Torrent readies themselves for a tense evening. When things end up calmer than normal, suspicions arise, particularly when one of their own goes missing. With a mob costume party in full swing, and a mysterious duo travelling the streets in search of costumed crimefighters, the heroes must figure out if things are as quiet as they seem, or if there is something bigger on the horizon. -- Click to Read

The Customer Service StinksMaking it in the big city was turning out to be a lot more difficult than he expected. Billy Bob knew that it was risky, challenging a supervillain, but he was desperate. He had managed to evade the mansion’s defenses, including the sawblades, killer robot, and genetically engineered land-piranhas. He had a large slash in his wifebeater for his troubles, and he had broken out into a nasty sweat, but he felt proud of himself. He wiped his sweaty palms on his jeans and cocked his shotgun before ringing the bell.
And he waited.
After a couple minutes, he was about to kick the door in, when opened and revealed a lederhosen-clad hunchback with tentacles for arms. “May I help you?”
Billy Bob directed his shotgun at the appropriate angle. “I’ve come to see General Pain.”
“Ah, yes, of course. May I offer you a drink while you wait?”
“Do I look stupid?” he sneered. Never trust a drink given to you by a supervillain (or their minion). O

"Cyborg!,"Robin called him. "Have you analyzed it's whereabouts?" "I can't!,"Cyborg explained. "You know it can shapeshift. I don't even know what to scan!" "Raven? Starfire?,"Robin called them on the Titan communicator. "No sign of the creature,Robin,"Starfire replied. "It could've blended into ANY place!" "I can't believe I'm saying this,"Raven said. "But we actually might just need Beast Boy." Robin put his head down on the computer desk. Raven was right;they DID need Beast Boy.
Just then,someone came in. It was Beast Boy. "Beast Boy!,"Robin felt both relieved and angry. "Where were you?!" "At you-know-who's new school,"Beast Boy looked down. Robin shot a confused look at him. "But she...she doesn't have parents!" Beast Boy sighed. "Guess again" Robin felt like he knew what Beast Boy had been thru,so he put a hand on his shoulder.

Spider-Man: Hail to the King ProloguePrologue: Crimson Day
Midnight, in one of New York City’s cemeteries, a lone security guard does his usual patrols and checks on the graves. Normally this cemetery wouldn’t need a guard, but after the events of Otto Octavius’s reign in Spider-Man’s body, New York’s current mayor Stanley Lieber made all graveyards upgrade their security just in case any more villains cheat death. The guards himself walked pass the mad doctor’s grave that had been grafittied and vandalized with phrases like “burn in hell Ock!”
“Poor bastard…” The guard sighed to himself as he continued his shift.
It was at that moment he saw a hooded figure looking over two other men who were masked and seemed to be digging at the grave. Thinking they were grave robbers, the guard grabbed a baton and ran towards them as he yelled “Stop right there thieves!”
The hooded figure turned towards the guard as he simply walked towards him casually. Fo

Over the years, we have been lucky to work with a number of different artists, many who have created a single image for us. However there are some who, due to a variety of reasons, have created a handful of items, but not enough to be featured as an independent artist-of-the-month (typically an artist who has created 8-10 pieces or more, are considered for that spot). Since we want to showcase those talented individuals, as well, here is a special "mini" issue feature 5 of those artists.

To see the official Winners Journal with prize listings, click the thumb below:

Contests are an amazing thing. They allow you to stretch your artistic skills, taking on subjects and characters you might not otherwise. Of course, there is also the desire to win a prize and/or recognition. I think most of us can say, that even when we do light entries we don't think will win, we have that small hope in our hearts that they will. I think that is the hardest part of being a judge. It's not picking the winning entry, but realizing there will be losing ones; it's hard to know that artists spent time and effort on a piece, pouring their hearts into it, and they will not receive a p

BlackTorrent Site Update

Wed Jul 16, 2014, 4:20 AM
Relativity-newlogo by mirz-alt


Well, there is good news and bad news. Fortunately, the good news is great, and the bad new isn't that bad.

We are proud to announce the updated Black Torrent website! This is phase 2 of the massive site overhaul that began in February. The main thing that was updated this time around was art, and boy was it updated. Our gallery got a total make-over and literally hundreds of new pieces were added. In addition, each piece has some sort of commentary: notes on the art, anecdotes about creation of the pieces, tidbits about the stories, and general trivia. Plus you can now easily share pieces on your favorite social networks (if you want to, that is). Seriously, there is a lot to see, so if you're inclined, grab a cup of coffee or tea before you head over.

In addition to general art, there is a new section that covers the "World" of Relativity, from maps, to information on the vehicles and gear, even family trees. Note that while you may have seen some of this stuff on dA, the Blacktorrent site has a ton more information, as well as an easier navigation to find what you're looking for.

Now, the bad news. Actually, there are two pieces. First of all, we had planned to publish our next anthology today, as well as launch the option of purchasing the ePub version through the Google Playstore. Unfortunately, we ran into a bit of a snafu and it will be a few more days before Google will have the option available. Since we don't want to distribute the book piecemeal, we made the decision to push the launch date back to Monday, July 23.

Second, I have been promising the next episode for a few weeks. I will be quite honest, I had it finished, and ended up scrapping it...twice. As much as I want the story to be done, it simply is not to the level I want it to be. So, yesterday morning after reading it again, I made the decision to hold off publication and do another substantial re-write. As frustrating as this is, it's something I love about publishing Relativity ourselves. We have the ability to make this kind of decision to keep the quality of the series at the level we want. So, while it may be an additional wait, we hope it will be worth it.

That said, thank you everyone for your patience. Unfortunately these further delays mean I'll be MIA a bit longer. But we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I hope to be around dA more very soon.

For more details on the BlackTorrent.us update click HERE.

And now I will leave you with a bit of Relativity AU art:
