Dragon and Mermaid

So I've just returned from the San Diego Comicon and I have to say I had a really great time! I spent quality time with some really great people and I'll miss them all.

I got a portfolio review with Wizards of the Coast and Jeremy Jarvis, the art director says that I'm REALLY close. He responded to the traditional work in my portfolio and encouraged me to do more of that, believing I have some proficiency there. And the truth is that seems to be EVERYONE'S opinion. Todd Lockwood (who is a completely awesome person to hang with) Irene Gallo (who is another completely awesome person) Allen Williams (YET another person completely awesome) all say the same thing. Do the oils! So. That's what I'll be focusing my energies on from now on. I'll more than likely keep the digital work in the underpainting stage but I'll be finishing my portfolio pieces traditionally. Wish me luck!

Here are my latest couple of pieces. The mermaid was a life drawing where the model showed up dressed as a mermaid, so I ran with it. The dragon piece was me confronting my fears of doing a multi-figure composition with creatures and scenery. These will probably be the last digital pieces I'll be posting for a while:

Elves of the Future

I haven't had a lot of time to dedicate to producing art lately. As it turns out buying a house is a pretty big deal and requires a lot of time. Who-da-thunk-it? Anywho, Jon Schindehette of Wizards of the Coast is hosting a concept art sketch-jam-thingy on his blog and the topic premise is to take a fantasy race and set them in the future. I started this thing thinking that elves, being so in touch with natures and such, developed an advanced form of photovoltaics which they use to better use magics and enchantments.

It's been a looong time since I've posted anything! Here's my latest, Pygmalion - or rather Pygmalion's statue with a sci-fi twist. I've been watching waaaay to much Battlestar Galactica, it's got a very Cylon pondering it's own humanity thing going on...
