Forge Master

This is the first in a series of supernatural hunter character designs I’ve been working on and thought it would be fun show how I do a bit of my process. In this case, I started by laying in the highlights and the glow of the hammer with my watercolors, then my ink washes to…

Fan art published!

Shortly after posting this image of Maika Halfwolf and Zinn to Instagram I was approached by Monstress’s editorial assistant, Ceri Riley about using it at a later date for their fan art section! It took a little over a year, but here we are!! It was a super cool experience and I couldn’t be happier…

Getting Back into Ink Washes

I’ve been having a lot of fun getting back into working with ink washes and water colors. Lately I’ve been really inspired by Olivier Coipel’s instagram feed, and decided to pick it up again. I thought it would be fun to do a series of my favorite X-Men and X-Women to reacquaint myself with the…

Technical Problems

Geez, getting this illustration done was a lot harder than it should have been! The first issue I ran into was my Wacom tablet up and died on me. That was resolved by the awesome people at Wacom customer service for a low nominal fee. Next, I downloaded the newest version of Photoshop to try…

All Hallows Eve

I set this project up with working on my hatching skills in mind, specifically for tones and playing with light sources. Also, I wanted to do a fun horror piece considering that I didn’t have the time to do so back in October. As is the case with most of my art work I try…

A whole mess of stuff. Some new, some old.

So, I’m not always Johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to uploading my artwork as I produce it. Many of these are the pencils and inked stages of previous pieces that I have kept meaning to post and just recently found the time to do so. The only “new” artwork is the Wonder Woman sketch and the colored…

Art Challenge Day 5

This is the last day of my art challenge. I really had a ton of fun doing this (thank you Melinda Santora).  That said, there’s some Batman.

Art Challenge Day 4

Day Four into my art challenge.  The first two I did were character designs.  The last one is actually a scene from The Way of Kings.  At first it just started out as a warm up sketch but I found myself really getting into it the more I worked on it.

The Art Challenge

So a few days ago a good friend and fellow artist Melinda Santora (www.melindasantora.com) challenged me to an Art Challenge.  The terms of the challenge are to post three drawings online per day for the next five days. While I have been posting said drawings on Facebook I thought I would be a good idea…

Gotta love cats

So I came home to find that page one of my Stormlight pages had come unstuck from the wall and fallen on the floor.  My cat’s natural reaction to this event is to vomit on said page. It’s amazing what can be said for an xacto blade, rubber cement and a few hour with a…
