I've Moved!

Hey guys! Kind of let this blog fall through the cracks. Doubtful I will be updating it anymore. You can follow me at:

As an update for everything I've been up to though, take a look!

Mother of the Forest [Nymph Challenge]

This piece was done for the Nymph challenge over at theartorder blog. Trying a relatively new rendering style, really like how it came out. Very likely going to try adopting it to my other pieces, though hopefully in a less busy manner.

Angel Sanctuary

This one was a long time coming, started it halfway through last semester and never fully finished it. Just calling it done at this point. Also, obligatory clouds of course.

Lady Murder

Hah, yeah, I'm sorry guys. I've been rather lazy with updating my blog here. I've got some backstock to work through here. Dont mind me.

Finished this piece last semester for illustration. Took second place in TAD's Train Your Brain contest. Wanted to play with more graphic compositions, and I like how it turned out.

The Righteous Dawn

So I've been breaking out of my comfort zone a lot this semester. Oil painting, editorial illustration, comics, poster design, my entire media class... A lot of things I'm not used to doing. I've also been working on simplifying my compositions, using more large graphic shapes and better use of space. And while a lot of that hasnt been put up here (yet at least), I definitely feel I'm learning a lot from it. But every now and then, I just need to do something that is completely and entirely....me.

And thus, this painting. Epic fantasy. Golden lighting. Jagged rock formations. Clouds in abundance. Hey, cant knock me for being inconsistent, right? It started out as a thumbnail for a Way of Kings book cover (I ended up doing Mistborn instead), but I finished it out in my free time a little differently.

Dont worry, I'll experiment more later. Or...at least...after I finish my Illustration assignment on Holiday Giftbooks. :|

Edit: Added process gif.

La Musica Contest

Every year the La Musica orchestra festival has a poster contest that Illustration students work on as an assignment. The major themes they wanted were instruments, Sarasota, music, or celebration. It was, of course, also mandatory to use their logo. I didnt particularly enjoy this project as much as others, but I think I got a coolish image out of it.

A Morning Affair

My fashion assignment for Illustration I. Wanted to go for a fadeaway girl design but with highly contrasting light/shadow shapes. I think it came out pretty well.
