    spot illustrations and more! And I have a website! Sweet!

    Geez, I can't believe it's been a year since I last put work up here. (not counting embarrassing thunderdome failures.) Well, that's about to change! BEHOLD!

    The first two are old pieces, one based on an evil cleric character my brother made and the other one based on my pack-rat uncle. I knew people who thru-hiked the appalachian trail (2202 miles), and one of them told me how he picked up quirky little gadgets along the way and attached them to his walking stick. It ended up weighing over 24 pounds by the time he got to Maine! Yeesh!

    The next one is my Last Man Standing 2: Round 1 image. I think the piece kind of failed due to being too busy and unfocused, but for some reason I'm showing it anyway. Weird.

    The other three are spot illustrations I did in hopes of attracting some RPG commissions. I tried to get more humanity and narrative into these ones, though I was too busy playing around with tentacles to get that done with the octopus. With the orc, I wanted to show him finding another traveler's gear, like he's a grizzled veteran trying to figure out what happened. With the last one, I wanted to playaround with costuming, since I rarely do that stuff.

    Even though it's been up for several months, I think I finally put enough art on there to tell people about it. Here you go!

    Anyways, have fun looking at it, and any critiques, comments, etc. about this work, my website, or anything else in general is greatly appreciated. I rework my old art too much, so I promise every suggestion is given a fair shot. Finally, I'm boarding the plane to California and Gen Con (and an amazing J.C. Leyendecker show in San Francisco!) in a few hours, so it might be awhile before I get around to replying. Enjoy, and thanks!

    Awesome dude!
    Great work - especially like the backpacking-guy. The woman on the last one may have a bit heavy hips, huh?

    Nice work. You know how to finish a piece with great effort put in to it and this shows. In my opinion though, not every part of the paintings requires to be fleshed out so tight. For instance usage of lively brush strokes, or blurred parts that quide the eye to the more tight areas. Also I think you can inprove on lightning and color variation in general. Let's say the red creature in the first picture can have color variation and still be red. Take care.

    i really like the second and the last ones the most... The second has tons of character.. The only thing that bothers me is his armm... It seems like he has some sort of weird skin disease... kinda creeped me out when i saw it... the last one is really special.. I love the whole design of the girl and the way shes rendered... Fantastic... Thanks for sharing... keep up the great work
    Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd

    Wow, the octopus-lady is a blast. I mean the tentacles look really realistic and as if they were in the middle of an attack-move.

    Nice work!

    Holy cow, people be all respondin' to my stuffs!

    Pascallo-cool, I'm glad you dig the old traveling fella. With the lips, I probably got too obsessed with my reference and exaggerated it a bit much. I oughtta lookie that some more.

    Ramon Contini-I'm glad you mentioned that. In school, one of my big problems was that my originals would look okay in small reproductions, but the originals didn't have the interesting details to make people explore my piece. That was a long time ago, though, and now the flat level of detail ain't so dynamic. Time to reasses where I need to take my work.

    Nephilim, Jabo, Emperor, Maxetormer, Shadoman- Hella tight thanks mode

    Vigostar-Durn it, but I love old guy arms, what with all of the dried crud and discolorations. Might be reading too much like the plague, though.

    Den, don't even get me started. CCAD art kids mode my boy, CCAD art kids...
