Continuing a theme of master studies redone as Disney Princesses... this is Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, based on "Madame Paul Sigisbert Moitessier" by Ingres [link]
As an aside - the original of this painting hangs at the National Gallery in Washington, DC. I've visited and loved her forever <3

I did a bicycle pinup a while ago because I love Serge Birault's work

At the same time, I was getting really into Fellini movies (and I especially love his wife, Giulietta Masina, in them) so I scribbled up a matching pinup on a Vespa, and then I forgot about her for a long time (new and different!) I dug her out of the dusty corners and finished her recently. :)

Some of you may remember this painting I did back in 2009: [link]

The story goes like this -- I has gotten a new (supposedly) badass computer, which it turns out was a lemon, that blue-screened nearly constantly and with no provocation. The Elizabeth Bathory CHOW for ConceptArt.org was the first painting I did on that computer, and it was honestly the best painting I had ever done - until the computer did a BSOD in the middle of saving an iteration and corrupted not only my new file, but my old working PSD too. I lost the whole thing, and it was awful. I finished ... something... in time for the challenge, but I never was happy with it.

I put this away for a year, and then started this REALLY ambitious re-paint. Now, two years after that - working very sporadically on this from time to time - I think it's done. :)

Elizabeth Bathory is also known as the Blood Countess - one of the first female serial killers and one of the first modern vampire myths. More on her here: [link] Most people depict her nude in a bath full of blood, I'd decided to be different and show her recording her victims' names (she had over 650) into her book. With blood for ink, natch.

PS - I left the image kind of large so I can show off the details I am proud of. Don't go stealing stuff and make me put a watermark on it. <3

For the CHOW on ConceptArt.org, high fantasy pinup round. I didn't have time to render it the way I wanted for the deadline, but I thought it needed to get finished anyway. :)

Thus I dont have any new personal works at the moment but as a lifesign heres a commissioned character I did for the August issue (36) of the Fantasy Artist Magazine for Imagine Publishing which was printed together with a small step by step tutorial.

For CHOW #196 - The Wizard of Oz

I won the Robin Hood round (woot!) so I got to host round #196 (I got to pick the topic). A re-imagining of any of the Wizard of Oz's four main characters. I went for all of them, this is Dorothy Gale.

The Cowardly Lion is here: [link]
The Scarecrow is here: [link]
The Tin Man is still in process ;)

Edit, 02.04.2011 - did a bit more work on her this January before I submitted this for Spectrum judging. I like her MUCH better now. :)
