Beauty and the Beast

Finally got around to coloring the line drawing from Gerard/Godbey workshop.


Perils of Petunia

 The next book cover in the series Upon A. Time series by Falcon Storm.


Justin Gerard /Cory Godbey/ Iain McCaig workshop of Awesomeness

Had the pleasure of attending a work shop with Justin Gerard, Cory Godbey and Iain McCaig this past weekend. It was an awesome experience where I learned much. The main prompt was to take either Alice in Wonderland, or Beauty and the beast and creature your own representation of it.

This is what I came up with. The value study was what I brought to the class and the line drawing is what I had at the end. I plan to take this to finish digitally at some point in the future.


Oil Painting with Dan Dos Santos

I had the pleasure of attending at workshop with Dan dos Santos this past weekend. I was awestruck the entire time. Dan is as phenomenal teacher as he is a painter. If anyone has an opportunity to interact with the man  you should, and you will learn I a lot. This weekend in particular was daunting because this was my first foray in to traditional oil painting. The image is still a WIP but it ended up turning out a bit better than I had hoped. Her are some progress shots from the workshop.

Anyone reading this should go attend these workshops. They are very informative and very much worth your time.




Recently I've been dabbling in portraits. One of these I did for fun as reference. The other was a gift for my uncle Peter on his 60th birthday.


The Phoenix War

I had the pleasure of working the amazing Richard Sanders again on the next upcoming book in his series, The Phoenix War. I'm not usually one for sci fi space battles but Richard always seems to rope me in with his descriptions. Ater a long time of laboring over this image here is the end result.


Art Order: Viking

Had a lot of fun with this one. Im going to try limited pallet paintings more often.


DnD Art test

To my chagrin I learned that I would not be getting the job of a life time and becoming an in house concept artist for DnD. Oh well. The job was offered to an artist far more talented than I.

Since that trial is over I thought I would at least show the world the test I took to try to get that lofty position. The devious minds of Jon Schindihette and Richard Whitters conceived an evil test with several prompts that were to be completed in only 24 hours. This mess of chicken scratch is the result of that 24hr art test.


Art Order Challenge:Nymph

With the return of the ArtOrder comes a new art order challenge. The prompt was very open ended and allowed for a lot of creativity. It was simply, draw a nymph. Here was my shot at it.
