Studying at a museum

Here are some studies I did while at the Sleater Kinney Museum at University of Puget Sound.

I did some work practicing masking. Here are some shots from my first go at using masking fluid.

Red-legged Seriema



The Red-legged Seriema or Crested Cariama (Cariama cristata) is a species of bird found from Brazil south of the Amazon to Uruguay and northern Argentina. (source)



This piece is actually a gift. It was done with watercolor on lightly primed canvas.

Forgotten Halloween Post




Character Art

Just a quick art dump of work done for a pre-commission sketch. 




Winter Birds - A long standing favorite


Drawing holiday birds has been a long standing favorite of mine. I just love them. This is the second year I've done them. Soon each of these will be turned into painting and sold as tiny art cards.

A slew of new work that hasn't been uploaded yet...


This rhino is a piece I did for a group called Drinking for Conservation. It get's put on a vodka bottle from a local distillery. 


This design was a commissioned portrait. A ton of fun to work on. It's a little outside the normal style request I get which made it really great to work on. 


And because I always love to post some hand sketched work, here are some Overwatch fanart sketches of Zenyatta.

Pet portraits



Pet portraits are one of my very favorite things to do. These are two nearly complete pieces I did recently.


Birch Tree Painting

It's been a while since I worked on a traditional painting. This was a gift for a family member. Let's hope they liked it!

I love mini paintings.

Superhero - Portrait

Last night I felt inspired to do a superhero portrait. I did a quick online giveaway and here is what I got submitted.

A blogger that goes by Homelesswerewolf in Tumblr submitted this "superhero pose".


So I created this:

I started with a really basic shape outline using an overlay. Then dropped in some simple colors, some details, and a backdrop.
It was a lot of fun to work on. 
Perhaps I shall do more!

Santa Design


Every year I also do a Santa design. One of my favorites in the past was modeled after Richard Armitage. But this one is a bit more traditional. Still, it was fun to do.

Size: 7"x7"
