The Last Cycle

Nothin' much to say about this one to those not in the loop. But I like how her hair turned out.

Thursday, December 15, 2011

My final for digital painting class. Very happy how this turned out.

Yep. Roary again.

Work sample.

An... example of what I do at my job. Illustration for part of a 33 lesson calculus course.

Howl's Moving Castle

Howl's Moving Castle art requested by a fan on my Tumblr account.
And then Skyward Sword happened. I've been loving the game so much. Really great installment to the Zelda series.
Sketches of characters from the Wheel of Time book series by Robert Jordan. Rand and Min.
Stuff I'm working on for digital painting class. This is my final project. Such a great class.

Hint: Don't Get Tendinitis

So this is my digital painting midterm. Obiviously it's not done, but you can blame my recent case of tendinitis for that. I will end up finishing it when my wrist gets better, but until then, we press on.

I Miss my Dragons

Some speed painting dragons that I have done to fulfill my need to draw dragons. I miss you guys. :)

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Thought you guys might enjoy this.

I love drawing expressions. Like... way too much. And when I see pretty dead and lifeless faces in video games it makes me cringe. Legend of Zelda is no exception. Their faces are so flat... and their expressions are obvious. They is no subtly... no tact. I want to see muscle tissue move when someone smiles, or have their brow move down when they're angry. Anything to show that these characters that a lot of us love have more life than a copy paste expression.

Another Work In Progress

College and commissions are awesome, but it prevents me from going into my personal work sometimes. So many works in progress to get to...

Rahvin makes another appearance.

Thursday, September 15, 2011

An attempt at something polished... ish. It's still got some ruddy edges though.

My Shaman character once more.

Aka redux

Sketching out my little red character once more, but with improvements added. Hopefully her shape isn't has interrupted as in the painting. The hair did a lot of negative things toward my character. Will probably choose a lighter... lighting scheme.

Aka - Little Red

First assignment for my digital painting class. Can't wait to get torn apart! YEAH.

Another character from the Solar Kingdoms Universe. Rowna the Seer.

Why YES I did enjoy adding fur.

Rahvin Returns

Silly speed paint of my character Rahvin again. She's such a poser.

Scratch that, Reverse it - Book Cover, finished

You know when you get half way through a project and then you realize, "This sucks?"

Yeah, I had one of those moments. So I did the cover over again. I went down to simple, instead of complex, and this worked out so much better in my opinion. Off to send this to the author.

Book cover illustration process... is very slow. XD.

Shaman's Gift


Skyward Sword Deku Baba

Stain Glass Style

Trying out my stainglass style again. I've forgotten how much I've missed it.

Skyward Sword Waltula

A spider that has six legs and four eyes - wait... what?

Whatever makes the design great, I guess. XD Skyward Sword comes out November 20th. WHAT A GREAT BIRTHDAY MONTH, YES?

Skyward Sword Octorok

Zelda Informer wanted me as one of their artists for their Zelda walk through, and they are currently wanting artwork for Skyward Sword. I'm currently doing enemy artwork, and the new Octoroks are just so darn cool. Their colors are awesome. Really nice complimentary balance there.
I hope the site likes it. I sure do!

Solar Kingdoms stuff

A comparative family study. Was trying to visually see what traits Roary got from his parents.

Friday, August 5, 2011

Sketches... Featuring dragons :D

You know you want to hit the picture! To make it bigger and stuff. XD

Eva - In Progress

This is still in progress. I think I need to make the mountains a darker purple, as well as the crystals on her chain belt. It's tooo briiight. Still a lot more work to do for this one. But it's on its way.

Thursday, August 4, 2011


I'm sure to those who are more talented than me, that this is a garish butchering of color and light, but I gotta start somewhere. Forest type of lighting is my favorite kind of lighting... :P. I have to do it.

Saturday, July 30, 2011


This was a concept piece I did for the Zelda Project for one of the photo shoots. I was in charge of redesigning Volvagia, the evil fire breathing dragon. It was a difficult, but great task.

Eva 2

Remember that sketch I did of Eva like... yesterday? I hated it today, so I did it again. Now she looks more awesome. I think. Still in progress though. Had to add chains to her now.

Zelda - skyward sword

I should go to bed... :P

Yet another one for the fortune's favored forums. I loved doing this guy's eyes.


Literally a character I made up in two seconds for another art challenge on another forum. We are showing our "process" but we had to involve a unicorn in it somehow. This woman character is holding a unicorn imprinted sword.

Wednesday, July 13, 2011


Another one for the forums.


Another custom avatar for my friends over at the fotune's favored forums.

Rahvin 2

Just spare time stuff from work to blow off steam between projects. The textures turned out nice. But I also made an extra effort in the painting job, and trying to make it more my own style rather than someone else's. But... there's still a lot of influences. XD

Jeena is part of Roary's crew on his flyer, as well as Selnam.


Selnam is a character of a novel that is a joint project between Anna Stansfield and I.

Selnam is a Jehikarian who escaped the planet Jehikar during the radical and horrendous governmental reforms that recently rook place. One of the actual governmental officials, Selnam suffered a powerful spell attack, which wracked his body with heavy burns. As a result, most of his flesh is twisted, and he prefers to keep himself covered as much as possible. Including his face.

After his escape, he managed to join up on a flyer crew as an engineer, along with another Jehikarian named Jeena. The now both work on Roary's flyer.

A shaman drawing done for an art challenge here for our BYU animation class. Super fun to do!!

Quicky concepts -Roary faces

Right so, anybody who knows me sort of knows who this guy is. He's a main character of mine named Roary, and like any good character (har har), at certain times he transforms into a monstrosity and goes on a killing frenzy. Either way, I'm trying to find a newer face for him. He looked too... "pretty" still. Still too much like roary, rather then a beast to be feared. This was me experimenting on ferociousness, as well as trying to retain some of the aspects of Roary's face. I'm going to have to pull more features I think.

I like the first two the best. I might work with those.
