Hi! Welcome to my page!

I'm just an artist floating through life on a cloud. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in graphic design in 2013. My love will always be in illustration and concept art, particularly in fantasy.

I have a fondness of dragons especially. My current fascination is in taking real life animals, my favorites being fish, lizards, amphibians and invertebrates, and fusing them with dragons.

I have recently moved to digital art even though my specialty is in traditional. This change has brought about a profound interest in the digital art field. It absolutely amazes me how much I can do with a computer. I used to be such a stickler about my traditional media!

I hope you enjoy my gallery! I am striving for the best I can be as an artist so I am continually improving and learning. I am very passionate about what I do so I look forward to uploading great work for you!

Thanks for visiting :) and have a great day!

Skink Dragon
Been really busy the past few weeks so I wasn't able to submit anything. I finally got around to finishing this though, gradually... It's another traditional media dragon. It's based off the "five-lined skink." Just like the penguin dragon I did this in polychromos color pencils.
Gonna be posting a new dragon either today or tomorrow. Been really busy sorry for the wait!
Penguin Dragon
-------based off the humboldt penguin---------

Just got a strathmore sketchbook with toned paper and had to draw something in it. I've been seeing a lot of artists here on deviantart using this paper and I have to say it really was fun to draw a dragon on it! I loved seeing the contrast between the paper and the art. It really is gorgeous paper! I will definitely be doing another one here in the next few days. I've been wanting to get back into traditional media as of late....

I added in the shadow below the dragon with photoshop. I didn't think it looked right just floating on the paper. I added a few more details with the computer to make the highlights stand out more aside from the standard color correction stuff....I really took this paper to its limit and it would not allow any further detailing without damaging it. Did I mention there's no scales lol! Took me far less time to finish it than normal.....

Rabbit Dragon
This is just something I came up with one day. I have seen a yugioh card with a rabbit dragon on it a while back and I wondered what one I dreamed up would look like... I worked on it off and on periodically. My husband said it reminds him of that killer rabbit on "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Not my intention when I made it LOL. Also I wasn't looking at a reference photo while drawing this just my memory so there may be anatomical mistakes on the rabbit half(mainly the face).
Dragon of The Tombigbee
I felt like attempting a landscape digital painting this time around since I haven't really given one a try yet. I have a love for nature documentaries(That's probably one reason why I love taking real animals and combining them with dragons...) and while I was watching one I got an idea of having a "flathead catfish" dragon with a background of the Tombigbee River. I have fond memories of that river. I practically grew up on it. I added in some ravens that are chasing the dragon. I've seen smaller birds do that to larger predators so I thought it would add more movement in it.

Flathead catfish are not easy to paint! Those fish have tons of dappling and spots on their skin. I'm just thankful they don't have scales LOL! I've gotten accustomed to making my own brushes for whatever texture I need so I'm not stippling the whole thing one at a time! Now that would be ridiculous! My hand would hate me if I did that.... Thankfully I've learned a lot while studying other artists' work here on deviantart. It makes my job so much easier....

As for the wings...I do realize that most of my dragons have smaller wings than they really should so I wanted to go for more realism this time around. This is something I'm going to bear in mind when I paint more dragons in the future...

You have the cutest and fluffiest avatar! :love: You have lovely art in your gallery. I absolutely adore when artists turn regular good ol' species (like bass fish) into dragons and fantasy creatures! :D Lovely!
