Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

May 2006 leave you peacefully, and may 2007 bring you new adventures and bright hopes fullfilled.
I feel bad I didn't get anything up for my favorite holiday, Christmas. My new years resolution will be to actually do something for Christmas next year. Something big and worth while even.

This is a fun little piece, I took an existing image of Castle Grayskull that I painted, maybe I'll show it here someday... And I wanted to see what that creepy ol' castle would look like with a nice coat of snow.

I was inspired largely by a couple of things, my spectrum entry below takes place in the snow, and also, over the last week I was at my parents house in Monroe Utah, where it dumped nigh unto a foot of snow on us all, leaving the landscape in a beautiful, pure blanket of snow. Magical I tell ya... just plain magical.

Spectrum entry... WIP

It's been a bit o' time since my last post. Too much Christmas fun. And Just so it's known, I probably won't post much until after the new year also. But one never knows what a day brings, until the day hits you so...
For our Imagine Learning Artists challenge, we're submitting to Spectrum!

This is a sketchy work in progress on mine... I have yet to figure out half the figure and I still don't know what kind of made up animal next to him.

But I wanted it to be wintery, and again, like that wierd horse creature I posted, this is coming outa my head, a character of mine that hopefully will come to life in a story I have yet to write.

Done! Wow, this ended up a little more "Narnia-ish" that I'd expected.

I did this for our work challenge. Check out the other entries here:

I'm overall happy with how this turned out. But I think the more I worked on it the more frustrated I'd get with it for whatever reason.

I'd love to hear crits on this one!

Have a great Day!

Orko's girlfriend?

A goofy sketch of a goofy character.

Nothing more, but a bit of fun paint sketchin' this morning.

I'm back from my break!

But I haven't been able to sketch a whole lot lately, well, I have, but not stuff I can really post here... Yet.

Here's a Centuaress that I intend to paint up for the mythical challenge that my co-workers and I are doing. We plan to have a new challenge every couple of weeks to keep our imagination good n' sharp.

This character is actually a character that a gal named LupaLuna on the forums concepted up. As I move forward to paint this, I'll push it a little and make it a little more of my own in color and armor and sword design, as when I first drew this, it was based on her origional concept. Am I making any sense here? Sometimes I wonder... :)

At any rate look for progress on the painting here!

If you're coming from to see my blog, sorry for the disapointment today as you've probably already seen this. I've not had a lot of time to sketch for myself as of late, so I'll put up another fairly recent piece that I feel turned out okay. I started out doing a reference study and then turned her into Teela. Stranger things have happened.
Have an excellent Thanksgiving! I won't be around to post for the next week or so, as I'm disapearing for a while out into the west.
The Teela character is trademarked and owned by Mattel.

A lady Aayla

This was a commission that I did for a good friend. It also served a double purpose, in that my daughter also loves this character.

This also took me waaaaay too long to finish.
The Aayla Secura character is trademarked and owned by Lucasfilm.

Good horsey...

This is what happens when I just sketch what's in my head.

Now creatures as such don't always lurk in there... This particular beast is something I'm toying with for a possible story I've got going on in my head. Someday I'll get it all down on paper, and produce a real painting or two illustrating the story I'd like to tell someday. Again, he's just a dreamt up concept, nothing more at this point in the game.

Happy Friday!

Hello there!

I've done it. I've jumped on the blog-wagon! I'm now a dirty blogger!

Welcome, this is the place where I will do like many other much greater artists have done, and try to post my artwork, sketches, ideas and such on a somewhat regular basis.

I have no website, haven't found the time to bother with it, but this may give me a chance to get my stuff out there.

Feel free to stop by whenever you like, and if you feel you need to say anything about my artwork, please post! I'm always open to critiques and the like to better myself in my craft.

My first image isn't very indicative of what I do on a regular basis, but something I enjoy very much. This is a speed painting of what the sunrise looked like out here where I live, I just HAD to try to capture it to the best of my abilities, as I didn't have a camera ready.
