The Mermaid - sketch

Inspired by the opening and ending sequence of Jan Siegel's Prospero's Children.  (Great book!) Thinking of doing an oil painting of this scene, the mermaid decorating Raf's corpse.

I haven't painted in oil in four years, and my last painting was also mermaid theemed.  Welp, I never pretended I didn't like mermaids :p

Lady Fire

Quick illustration of the monster Lady Fire from Kristin Cashore's Fire. I loved the books series and  although Fire was probably my least favorite of her series, this character stuck in my head.  I loved the heroic lonely monster woman who is determined to be the last of her species, and she is a musician of all things. Anyway, fun sketch, and color holding that hair was less of a pain then I thought it would be!

Jirel Meets Magic, inks

Some of you may recall that I penciled an exert of Jirel Meets Magic by Catherine L. Moore.  Jirel Meets Magic is a Sword and Sorcery story from the 1930s that I am quite fond of, it is your standard high fantasy S&S story, but casted with mainly female characters, which gives it points in my book.  The first phase of my adaption can be seen here

And here are the inks I've been working on! Enjoy em :) I'm still trying to figure out if I should color them and if so, how/ what medium.  Any insight in that department would be greatly appreciated!

Rooftop Fight

The Department of Education canceled school buses this week due to the gas shortage, so I haven't been working much.  On the plus side, I did this fun illustration! Hope y'all like it.

A quick watercolor based on other Amtgard pictures.  This one is based off of a pic of one of our Assassins, Wynter, in the Scout competition.

Harry Potter page

I was sick through most of the hurricane, but while I had energy and no freelance to work on, Nathaniel told me to do a Harry Potter comic, and I couldn't get the idea out of my head, so whala!  

A small exert of page 330-1 of the Order of the Phoenix.  It was a lot of fun to do...except for the library books.  The library books were kind of awful :p
