Alfheim Valkyrie WIP2

It has a proper title now!

I added a rough background sketch and changed the position on the figure so she fits better  within the frame.

Valkyrie WIP 1

This is a digital painting I’m working on for fun over spring break. I’m feeling inspired by History’s awesome Vikings series!

I think I’m going to crop it to a Magic: the Gathering illustration size/layout and use it as a card art exercise for my portfolio.

New Facebook Page

I created a new Facebook page for my illustration to keep it separate from my personal profile. You can find it right here if you’re interested!



Old Favorites

This is a colored pencil piece I did a few years ago for a drawing class in art school. It was one of my first forays into serious colored pencil usage. It’s still one of my favorites.
The piece is a still life inspired by Plato/Socrates’ idea of the Philosopher King

Master Copy – Frank Frazetta’s Barbarian

This is an exercise I worked on last week.

I am trying to bring my digital and traditional processes closer together so I treated this digital painting like it was paint on canvas – no layer tricks, no sampling colors, only using layers to “glaze” with a “multiply” blending mode, that sort of thing.


The original is, of course by the legendary Frank Frazetta.
