Joan d'Arc






Here is my final version of this gal. I ended up cropping the canvas for compositional purposes. I thought all the other elements in the previous versions weren't really helping that much + I spent lots and lots of hours just on her upper half.

Digital Friday

Happy Friday. Self-portrait in Photoshop. Had to tone down the Green Arrow style mustache a bit.


work in progress

More WIPS.





Getting some progress with Joan, however there are still some anatomically incorrect places. The face took me forever to figure out but it seems fine for now, however Im still not satisfied with it, I think the nose is off, and the eyes are weird but I tried literally like 80 times painting the face over and over again. So I'm breaking off that for now. Also still trying to figure out her arms, they are a bit wonky and too long.

Finally got a chance to scan in some thumbs for the Fire Elf piece. Definitely have a lot of ideas on how to fix that a whole lot better. Instead of trying to salvage the previous one I was working on, I'm going to be starting over from scratch and implementing some illustrative story telling with it. I can do that better by selecting better angles and really thinking about what is going on in the scene.

Joan of Arc WIP




A couple nights ago, I wanted to see how far I've actually come along in my skills by taking one of my old pieces and fixing it. Still WIP but here are a couple of hours worked into it.

A Really Good Painting Skin Tutorial


A short and sweet tutorial by Amelie' Hutt. Check out her portfolio.

Don't Eat Me: A New Page

I created a new page for Don't Eat Me-which we're finishing up this Spring. Eliminated the need for several other pages with dialogue and turned it into one nasty wildcat lair. It's more "digital" than the rest of the book but we'll make it work.
