Started the graphite bones of my next painting. Need to finish off her body/face, and then onto the painting. also: a view of my messy desk.
Hey everyone! I just wanted to share something I’ve been cooking up lately. I’ve made a second tumblr account for all my little urban sketching adventures. I wanted a separation between my fantasy work and my real life sketches. So, without further ado.. I present to you my alternative account: i draw outside. From here on out, I’ll be posting any sketches of that sort over there, so this will be the last time you’ll hear of it on this blog. I also opened up an etsy shop where I’ll be selling high quality prints of these sketches. So please, if you’re interested, check out that store as well!

Cover illustration for a personal story I’ve created. A complete tutorial for the process on this painting will be coming soon!
Concept for a “spider queen.” Specifically Lolth, from d&d, as a challenge to redesign her. I’ve been looking at my work as a whole and a. I feel inconsistent, and b. I think my portfolio in general has way too much saturation for my liking. All of my favorite artists/artwork use a desaturated color palette, and I realize that I just always do the opposite when I make anything. My favorite paintings I’ve done turn out to be the ones that utilize the least amount of saturation. I also noticed if I delve too much into color that it throws off the contrast horribly. So! Something a little new.
Now that the Spectrum 20 deadline’s creeping around the corner, I can finally show what I’ve submitted. Done in acrylics, finished digitally.
So this will be my submission to the call of entries for Spectrum 20. I was going for something along the lines of an undead army battlefront. Should be fun to paint. What you are looking at right now is a rough study done on tone paper to get my values down. The finished product will be done in acrylics and finished up digitally. Looking forward to painting this, finally!!
Just created a twitter. Or rather, just deleted all of my old tweets on an already existing account. Will be using it mainly for my art promotion along with some personal things that interest me. Follow me if you ever so desire.
I have been contemplating my “style” and the direction of my art this summer. I don’t feel like my personal voice has been showing itself in my artwork. By doing alot of experimenting and exploring with different media, it’s starting to show itself a little. I tried my hand at ink for this. I find myself enjoying traditional media more than digital these days, at least for a base. It’s helping me loosen up more, as I feel alot of my work is stiff.
