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:…

The Courtesan's Quarters

A long fought victory against my weaknesses with environment art, I started this in my mentorship with the lovely Todd Lockwood back in December last year, it's taken me this long, on and off, to finish it. The richer quarters of Ravahn, my pirate merchant city. Ancient, and built in the rock stacks with methods long since forgotten to mankind, the Courtesans' Quarters are where my gifted women live their day to day lives, each with an impressive square footage of ornately decorated space to call her own and do with as she pleases. This is the plant-loving Lanyra's abode.

No 3d used, just straight up photoshop and lots of headaches over the spiral staircase, haha. Was good to do it once, to understand it, but I shall certainly use 3d in future. Very much inspired by my own love of the Mediterranean countries and places like Malta.

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.

Thank you! Makes me happy when folks get that spark of inspiration from my own work :) And platinum works for me too!

Sam! O_O  I don't know what to say.  I am always humbled and honored when an artist of your elite caliber watched me.  I am literally trembling in delighted wonderment.  What if funny is I was just bragging about how astonishing your art is to a family member and dropped everything to go give them a brief tour of your gallery, then to go back to my notifications and see YOU watched me was almost surreal.  I don't know if I can truly express how appreciative I am of this honor.  I truly hope my works can make your gesture worthwhile to you as well.  May you be blessed with inspiration and erudition.

Hello Sam.

Excellent work.

Do you have any kind of degree in Arts ?

If so, are you interest in coming to Guadalajara, México (University of Guadalajara) 1 or 2 weeks in order to impart a workshop ?

Best regards.

Everardo Camacho, architect.

Hey Everardo, this year is pretty booked for me ( I work full time, so only have so much holiday I can take per year), but I could certainly consider it for next year? 
chingao Featured By Owner May 2, 2018

Next year is ok.

May I have a curriculum vitae (resume) of yours.

I give you my email (institutional) so you can see everything is real   =)      You can look for me in…

Let's keep in touch, I really admire your work.

Best regards !
