Another piece for the Game of Thrones set, a little Wildling war going on here, haha. The bone armor was a ton of fun on this one.

Thanks for looking!

:star: Check out the tutorial here! [link] :star:

Finished at last! Some good ol' classic Warcraft art, a Night Elf Hunter kicking some Naga nads in Azshara!

This took two crazy weeks to finish in between freelance, probably the most complex piece I've done to date, and I think it's much improved over the last piece I attempted like this. I've been trying to focus more on the composition and drawing stages of my images lately, and I think it's resulting in much better finishes.

Also, painting scales is a silly thing.

I also saved 61 progress shots of this, so expect some form of tutorial up in the near future.

Thanks for looking! :)

One of the characters I did as a demo at the TAD booth during Comicon. I quite like how this one turned out and learned a few things about tertiary details that I think will help my designs a lot.

Edit 05-04-13 - I've updated a number of pieces to get them up to snuff in my portfolio and this one underwent some heavy revisions so I thought it'd be worth updating on here. :)

:star: Check out the walkthrough for this piece here: [link] :star:

Here's a piece done for our illustration class as well as for the Diablo 3 Portrait of a Champion contest.

Had a ton of fun working on this one and think it's quite a benchmark for my work in terms of complexity.

Will post up a walkthrough for this soon!

Also if you feel so inclined, feel free to vote for my piece in the official contest gallery! [link]

Cheers!

Another Pathfinder character!

This one is actually one of my favorites, simply for the fact that how often do you get to paint a cripple for a fantasy game? Usually everyone's just swinging swords, shooting spells and looking badass. It's refreshing to do something more quiet and thoughtful, and it was quite a challenge figuring out how to pose her, but I like how it turned out in the end. :)

Another commission for =CrowbarTK-Hullo of her character Naiande, to be paired with the previous one done a few months ago: [link]

This was a super fun character to paint; the design is really interesting and slimy skin is like the most fun thing ever. Also spending more time on the drawing stage before moving in to rendering is helping a lot with speed and final results, think my process is starting to settle a little bit, which probably means it's time to shake it up. =P

Thanks for looking!

Here's a new character illustration, done as an example for some commissions I'm currently offering. If you're interesting in seeing your character like this, check out the info here: [Link]

Had a lot of fun with this piece, playing around with rhythm and gesture, and it's been a while since I've done any fantasy character design. Feels good to get back to the ol' roots! :)

Thanks for looking!

Some more Blizzard fanart, cause they do cool things. Just having some fun being nostalgic about BC days when I was at my peak of WoWhood. :B

Had a lot of fun with this piece, it was one of those few that just kind of flowed from start to finish and never caused much trouble. It's also good practice as I'm trying to push myself to draw more complex armor lately. Getting better slowly but surely!

Also saved progress shots on this one, so here's a start to finish process gif: [Link]

Quick character portrait for fun- pretty pleased with how it turned out as I was experimenting with some new process techniques as well. :)

Thinking about maybe offering these as commissions; would you guys be interested in something like that? Let me know! :D
