-  I offer a wide array of subjects, including humans, anthros, fantasy creatures, etc.

- Gore and nudity are fine, and adult work is accepted but merits a different price guide; email for an estimate on nsfw material.

Whew! Finally finished the detail study for my Thumbelina piece! 

It took well over a month, as I kinda got hung up with bringing it up to well-rendered finished, but I’ve learned SO much about digitally painting figures, bubbles, and metal from doing this—and I only worked on it for about four hours every week, between all my other studies. It’s certainly built my confidence for tackling the final painting! I originally intended to do more of a quick colorizing method with the pencils, but I found myself correcting so much of the original anatomy (and a little of the perspective on the tubes) that much of the initial pencil work ended up becoming completely covered. I’m considering going back and completely re-penciling Thumbelina so i can paint her again in a much faster and looser style, since she is a much smaller element in the piece. It is tempting just to paste my study in, but I don’t want to take the lazy way out.

Next big goal first, though: Completely finish the Fussy Otter Painting. :) 

Today’s Figure Drawing 1 Ovoid Manakin sturdiest from Bouguereau, Robert McGinnis, Frazetta, J.W. Waterhouse, and Terry Dodson. Brownie points to anyone who can name the paintings/works any of these poses are from. :)

Imagined Realms: Book 1

I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first issue of Imagined Realms, an annual art publication featuring positive and diverse representations of women in fantasy and science fiction. Each book will feature 10 exclusive and new illustrations created by me specifically for the book.  

Available for purchase are the printed books, 6”x8” and 11”x14” print packs that have all 10 illustrations, limited edition fine art giclees, and a downloadable process video showing my digital painting method. 

Please check it out and spread the word! 

We’re a third of the way there on just the first day! :) Thanks so much, everyone!
