I had a lot of fun playing around with Brialla’s lighting scheme. As soon as the client told me that she had metal wings, I imagined she would use them as a shield/weapon. The idea was to really make it feel like her wings were covering her, and the lighting was adjusted to help give […]
This is a commission for a Khaijit character, from the Elder Scrolls games. In this sketch, I’m aiming for a background of Ayleid ruins, which the client specified were the kind of place where Willowaker mostly adventured. He’s missing an amulet that hangs from his neck, and I believe this particular position with the light […]
Once I being working on the the final version of a commissioned image, my favorite part is solving the lighting scheme. In this case, I wanted the metal wings to be shielding her, so I projected its shadow on her body to further enhance the effect that it covers her. This also allows me to […]
Whenever you get a commission, you have to give yourself a while to study the image and its components, do some research. If that image just so happens to be a tattoo, then even more so. For this commission, I was asked to make a tattoo design that includes, among other things, Death as a […]

He’s a Tiefling magus from the Pathfinder setting, commissioned by Mr. Nielson. This particular commission was for two characters, but “Brialla” is still “W.I.P.”. Beneath the finished image, […]
I’ve been working on this commission of a character named “Eiger”. After the linework, I start to study the lighting on the character. I’m not sure if you guys enjoy me posting each step of these images, but then again, I did say that I’d be sharing the process. So what do you think? Should […]
There’s five gnomes in this image! The client asked for traditional Polish influences in clothing, so this is definitely a lot of fun. I love designing this sort of characters.
