The painting I did for the students of Ringling for their DIPSY demo. :)
Thank you so much, for inviting me. :)

The original demo was about an hour, so I wasn't able to complete the painting. This painting has an additional hour added to the painting time.

The steps for the painting is here :…

Hi there!  This is beautiful, I just wanted to give you a heads up that apparently there's some folks using your art for the header of their patreon.  They're making about $160 a month off the page.  I'm sure they checked with you and got your permission before they used your art for it, but juuuust in case:

Finally found it! XD Came across this art in a video I casually came across,…, 2:44, and I wanted to see it since the link was there, And when I was looking through your gallery, I instantly recognized the first art of yours,…, that I saw in a song video... I think, Epicon...? Anyway, basically looked across your art and I must say- wait, probably just repeat what I said before XD But seriously, Amazing! :D (This might be my fav so far, just how the lighting and darkness that complements it so well giving that intimidating, fearful and ominous feel it should! :D)

Cool! This drawing taught me that HYDRAS have 6 HEADS, not 3....
Amazing btw. Monsters are the best concepts to muse off of...

Hello and I was wondering if I am able to use this picture so I can remodel and make a skin out of it for an online game and I need your approval to do so.

I love that one head that is the second closest to the ground! It looks like a very evil cat smirk. Like the one from Alice In Wonderland?
