Elf Warrior and Gwarf





This took between 20-25 hours. I didn't keep a log, but that's a rough idea.

Final of Dragon Painting





Please, if you have any helpful criticism, do not hesitate to make suggestions. This was an incredibly fun illustration to paint and I have to praise Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop for making such amazing tools!

OK since I first posted this I have tweaked the image quite a bit. I placed the older versions below and here is the latest and hopefully final version.

Various sketches








These are a few sketches I have done over the last few months in Painter. I figured I'd post some to f these playful little things showing my brain at work.

Worker Duck!




New piece for local hotel undergoing renovations. I did revisions as requested by the client. I added their logo and tilted the hat. They also wanted smaller feet. I liked the larger feet but, hey, it's their duck! Final, Revision, Original.

Studies and Spookies!


Blast from the past



This is an old piece I did as part of a deck of cards that local creatives in the Orlando area did for Disney managers as a gift.

Rework of Fairy picture


I love having other artists to bounce my work off of. Some folks over on the VoodooChilli website critiqued this sketch and helped me make it stronger before taking it to final. I think their suggestions about playing a little more with tonal temperature, leading the eye around the image better, and not having the attention drawn away from the character were all valid issues and I have addessed them. Here is the new sketch.

And here is the Final Image.





It was a constant back and forth between Photoshop and Painter. I made a custom brush set in Painter and did most effects in Photoshop. It was helpful to take palettes from the photo reference that I used for different items. Saved a lot of time trying to mix all the colors. If you have any comments, I'd sure like to hear them. Thanks for looking.
