My first painting of 2021…and it’s already October. 🙃 I’ve been on medical hiatus all year (2021, how were you worse than 2020?) but I’m back baby!!! I will be starting up some commissioned work and re-opening the shop this month so stay tuned. My portrait commission slots are full right now but I will update if I am able to take on more for the holidays. Thanks for being patient with me, enjoy the autumn shroomies 🍄💕
“Apollyon” for 3dtotal’s new release, Art Fundamentals: Theory in Practice.
Process, Hi-res, sketches available on my Patreon.
Also on my Patreon are monthly livestreams and other exclusive content! In fact, October’s stream will be on the 8th at 1pm CST.
It’s Inktober! I’m experimenting a bit this time, I’m keeping the colour pencil sketch along with the ink lines to add to the drawing (I mean… can’t really erase the colour pencil sketch anyway haha!), I personally like the result, hope you guys like it as well! c:.
I’ve finally been able to finish these series of big cat portraits.
The personal meaning behind these paintings have slowly shifted towards something darker as I’ve been feeling down lately about the state of the enviroment and its wildlife.. what we are doing to the earth and all it’s inhabitants, is creating all manner of wounds.
If we’re not careful animals will go extinct and will soon be nothing more than relics of the past, only to be observed again behind a glass wall of a museum display. Like gemstones on a cabinet.
