Last Tuesday, as soon as I got home from teaching a class at the university, I got a fever unlike anything I have ever had before. What followed then was one of the hardest colds I’ve ever gone through in my entire life, knocking me out well until Monday of this week. I’m still a bit […]
Proceeding from the initial sketch, the background of this image is really important because… well I suppose because a scientist’s lab is really very important. So like good little artists, we start from the back and proceed forward, and that means solving the domed ceiling in the background first. This, in turn, meant I had […]
I emerge from the cold, not yet victorious and not yet fully healed, but at least able to sketch a bit. So here are some sketches for “The Shnuck”. Before we’ve been exploring the masks that the character would wear, but this character is also sitting atop a bear-strapped-to-the-back-of-another-bear. Which he just hunted using a […]
Raven thinks a bunch of firebreathing, exploding Kobold’s is just plain suspicious, so she and her sister have a plan. It involves letting her sister get captured and seeing if that causes whoever leads these Kobolds to come out.

Morbid Angel is a character from the Marvel Superheroes RPG, and his power is telereformation. Basically, what he does is teleport, but instead of sending his body to wherever he […]
This particular commission actually has several parts. The client requested the character illustration, an image to make into a patch, an image to make into a tattoo and an image to use as an avatar. With this, the first part is sort of complete, so now we advance on to making the other elements of […]
There’s still a lot of work to go with this image, but things are coming along nicely. The Snow Leopard is going to be a nice challenge, but I’m excited to work on it.
The mysterious woman identifies herself as Raven, and she claims that whoever’s in the cage below is her sister. She pulls out a huge knife with blinding speed, but talks in a way that makes it feel like she’s just bored by everything happening around her. She doesn’t really say what her plan is, but […]
Work continues on this image, and now that the basic colors and lighting is done, we can move on to more complex details and interesting lighting. There’s still a lot of work to do, but it’s coming along.
