I gave a class this morning about painting furry characters, and made this adventurous hamster called “Le Capitaine Fleuff”. Not much more to say, other than it was fun!
When I’m having a bit of trouble with a drawing, I try to go back to the basics and study it from other points of view. In this case, I wasn’t feeling like the dragon for the image I started here was working out structurally, so I went back to its skeletal system and took […]
Who would’ve thought? Drawing a giant centipede is a lot of work! This image is turning out to be a handful, but it’s also fun to work on. So it evens out.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared an image from one of the classes I teach. I don’t really teach as many classes anymore, for a multitude of reasons. But tonight I gave one about some techniques for painting nature, and anybody who knows me knows that I just love to paint trees. So this […]
I’ve always had a weird relationship with the Khaijit in The Elder Scrolls. On one hand, I’ve always liked feline races in my RPGs. What can I say? I’m a cat person. But on the other hand, I’ve always thought the Khaijit could look cooler – at least more badass. I’m not sure if it […]

I love it when I get a challenging image, and while dragons and phoenixes are quite common in fantasy, there’s a certain difficulty involved in making them look good, classy and exciting. For this particular image, the client requested that both the dragon and the phoenix be circling each other. Due to the size difference, I […]
When working on an image with as many elements as this one would have, I need to study the colors involved first. So here’s the color study for the “Redcap” image. I’m aiming for a cool, predominantly bluish green forest floor in contrast to a warm light coming in through the tree tops. Hopefully it’ll […]
On pages 40 and 41, Princess Glittersparkle reminds Weretiger that he’s got a nose. So… Last week was pretty interesting, here at the Ministry. We’ve started finishing our first commissions (since we went back to making them, mind you) and this week we’ve got some really interesting stuff to draw! There’s gnomes riding centipedes, dragons, […]
