A few new pieces I'm working on.
The gargoyle is for the monthly CDChallenge. Gargoyles were used as a way to divert rain water from the carved walls as a tool of preservation. I also read that Gargoyles could be wards against evil spirits. The final idea is that she's one of those warding gargoyles. To gain greater power she takes parts of the surrounding cathedrals and attaches them to herself. All to protect her pigeon friends.
For the Gryphon, I wanted a holy medieval knight. To really showcase her holiness I gave her multiple wings and eyes like some Angles posses. Her armor and feathers are made of crystal. Her spear is a shaft of pure light.
It's funny the way people will treat change. Some will just save it in jars at home to be cashed in at the bank. Some will use it so they don't have to break bills...Some use the smallest amounts for their entire purchase.
And some...Some will have you count it out no matter how many others are in line.
If you'll forgive the naming convention, I'd like to tell you a bit more about my J4-Kalope! The idea for the second in my series of monster folk came during the 4th of July here in the United States...ok, that, and all those wonderful Area 51 memes.
The Jackalope is not quite a mythical monster, but it did have potential. Along with the Jacklope, I wanted to "'Merica" her up, and so came the idea of the firearms and a "wild west" kind of influence. Horned material form her boots, chest, and bracers. On her bracers she can extend guns like those little derringers you see in old movies. Her horns on her legs, chest, and head contain cannons because, well, why not?
The next step in the process will be to ink her, and should give a better indication of the final piece.
Thanks for looking!
Done for the #cdchallenge: Ninja Cat!
I decided to do a Japanese Bobtail Nekomata. With evil soul magic!
I've been working on a Godzilla piece for the TalentHouse poster contest. I've been a Godzilla fan ever since I can remember, so I'm super pumped for the new movie.
I'm an illustrator hailing from a small town in Western Pennsylvania. I grew being influenced by the greats such Calvin and Hobbes, Godzilla, and Sonic the Hedgehog, and although I knew I wanted to be in the arts, it wasn't until later that I found my place in illustration. I love creating fantasy and sci-fi art, and I also create a weekly webcomic about the horrors of working retail.
