Pheonix Rising

"Pheonix Rising" The cover art I did for "The Captain's Rose" by Anita Stansfield! (Well hey! Look at that!) Digital Painting. It was a massive challenge for me. I learned a lot from it though and I'm fabulously pleased with the end result. You can buy the book on Amazon on kindle!

Roux

It seems whenever I have a rough time drawing doing something of Johnny gets me back in my groove. I've been wanting to draw this image again (drew it in graphite when I was around 14) for a long while. I'll be coloring it. :)

Arrogance and Agony

"Arrogance and Agony"
Ja'ek and Roary, from the trilogy I and a friend are working at slowly. This is symbolic of these two characters opposing personalities and character traits, sort of surrealistic. Roary (the hunched over one) does change a great deal, he becomes stronger, more sure of himself, and Ja'ek learns some humility. :) This is basically how they are at the very beginning of book 1.

Digital painting over a pencil sketch. I lost track of the hours. I'm not 100% pleased with some aspects of this, however there is a great deal that I love about it. It was a learning experience. :)

Le Portraits of Recent

It's time to begin updating this place a bit more seriously. Despite struggling a bit lately to get anything done (I can't seem to focus. Day by day I'm slowly feeling the urge to draw again. Soon! I'll get more than sketches done.) but I have a massive backlog of art that should be on this blog. So, for the next few days, this place should grow immensely.

Here are the two most recent portraits I've done.

"Most. . . Sinister. . . "
Sherlock Holmes Charcoal Sweep (I love charcoal sweeps. So very much.)
