Long May He Reign
This is massive spoilers, so apologies to anyone who isn't quite caught up with Critical Role right now. This moment came so out of the blue that it really made a huge impact on me. Mollymauk was such an intriguing character for me, since you were never quite sure how he was going to react in a scene. All I can say is thank you to Taliesin for bringing him so richly to life. Long may he reign!

You can buy from my print store at INPRNT:  OR, as I know not everyone has lots of disposable funds, you can buy the high res file and print yourself from my Gumroad:
To Dance in the Wildflowers sometimes neither a delight nor a tragedy.

A very personal oil painting I started at the Illustration Master Class ( after I was lucky enough to win a scholarship for the program. This piece is a little different and has come about not without its own struggles as I am trying to find a voice for myself outside of the more realistic narrative work I do for my job and my personal Whaler Girl Project. 

If you're curious about the IMC, you can read about my experience here:…

And if you'd like to just see the thumbnail and process images, you can find them on my ArtStation account:…
Distant View
Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted to animate by hand. My walls were full of copies from Disney and I had loads of flip books. When I got my first full time job, it kinda fell by the wayside, so 20 years later, I've tentatively picked it up again. I've got no damn clue what I'm doing, I should probably go read the Animator's Survival Kit again before I do any more, and maybe do stuff less complicated that stuff blowing in the wind, haha. But for the whole five frames, done in a couple of days, I'm kinda happy enough with it to share. 

Eideann, from my Whaler Girl Project. 
May Sketch a Day 2018
So over the last month, where I can, I've tried to do at least one sketch a day. This is the result, managed about 20, but finished a couple of other things in between too, so all in all, not a bad shot. Aside from the top row, which is Critical Role fanart and a couple of #metsonas the rest are all Whaler Girl related, characters or environments. 

If you want to see these a little closer up, you can check the two submissions on my Artstation page:……

I've used a number of stock artists work from here on dA. Including: 

Tarzan Taylor 18 by LinzStock    Full body stock by Fumei-stock    Full body stock by Fumei-stock 

Full body stock by Fumei-stock     Nereid 7 by Jaymasee

Male Stock 295 by BirdsistersStock  Medieval Festival 38
More Critical Role fanart, because it's one of the best things on the internet right now. Mollymauk taking the final blow to a really visually interesting enemy from episode 16, A Favour in Kind.

Also recorded the painting process, for those who enjoy that kind of thing, can be seen here:…

There's not much to tell about me. I'm a full time concept artist working for Playground Games in Leamington, UK, and I dig silver haired, evil men, voluptuous ladies and tentacles.

Excellent artwork!
Do you post on any other art forums?

Forums, not so much these days :) My other artlinks can be found in my profile above.

Thank you for the response, I'm just looking to get away from DeviantArt and hoping to find somewhere I can still follow my favorite artists.
Celestirus Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Your work is lovely and inspires me to paint more to improve my own work. Your latest critical role fanart was so touching, I knew about the spoiler beforehand and I was only one eps behind :( 
Zephyri Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you so much, and I'm glad it didn't spoil anything too much. 
Gem-D Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow!!! Your gallery is absolutely incredible!! Must watch :heart:
Zephyri Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you!
Gem-D Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
My pleasure :D

I don't even know where to begin the deep dive with your work. Your aesthetic is so appealing and I love that you do characters. I'm really fighting to get back into visual art and illustrate my own characters, so I find this stuff very inspiring. 

Also totally agree re: silver haired evil men, though my character's is more of a platinum. 
Zephyri Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Makes me happy when folks get that spark of inspiration from my own work :) And platinum works for me too!
