The Golem

Of flesh and stone, it came shambling out of the swamps and across the plain.
The battle was won, the day belonged to the good citizens, until it came.
Hunched, running like the gorillas plowing through the troops like a spade through earth.
With its' great arms bodies and horses were thrown through the air. Raw, wild power controlled by the will of evil.

Goblin Preist of Maglubiyet

A bit of illustration for a project I am working. A Goblin priest of Maglubiyet (The goblin god)
Still needs a little tweaking, but it's almost there.

New painting style test.

Recently, I have begun to take a drawing, multply on the mid range color, dodge out highlights (multiple layers), multiply in the darks.

Then of course, dump the whole thing and use it as an underpainting.

Giving you the "eye"

I was actually pretty pleased with the result.

From Pixels to Paint

Digital painting and illustration is a "thing" almost all unto itself. It is no less involved and requires no less artistic ability than traditional art.
I have been very fascinated in ways digital artists are bringing digital art to the gallery wall.
This is one of the pieces I lacquered onto a board, and have been experimenting with new techniques as often as I can.
The future of digital art looks bright.

Larry Elmore original work

Normally I would refuse to do this sort of thing, but those who know me, know I am a fan of fantasy RPG games. Even more, I am a fan of the art and artists that inspire so many people and make a great game epic.
One of my artistic inspirations from day one has been Larry Elmore, who started with TSR on the basic game system.
Here is everyone's opportunity to have and hold not only a full color copy of some of his best works, but signed original works by the master himself.
Elmore has a style that is very particular to detail, planning and careful thought. His work reflect the hours, days, and years of experience he has gained.
A worth-while investment to be sure, I have pledged my funds to this project, take a look for yourself!

Morning on the bog

Early in the morning, out on the bog, waiting for the sun to come up. It was time to start down the trail and see what the forest had in store. But not before snapping a quick photo when I got there.
