The White Lion

Here's a digital painting that took a long time to finish.  I wasn't actually sure I would, at first, but perseverance is key.  I used a different program than Photoshop, because it has been arg to deal with that much lag.

So after a time of research, I discovered a free program called Fire Alpaca, and have really loved it.  Fire Alpaca doesn't have a lot of brushes to choose from at first, but the brush I like most is the water colour brush; it will actually pick up another colour as you paint over it, making blending really easy.  Highly recommend.

Doctor Strange

I found this pose rather humorous when I saw it; Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) trying to look supernatural.  I immediately made the connection between this and Sherlock.  "I'm in shock, see, I've got a blanket!"

This is a piece of fan art of Captain America which I produced during the duration of inktober 2016.

Inktober Favourites.

Inktober was a success this year, so I thought I'd share with you a few of my favourites.  This year I chose my own theme; Lions, which lasted about fifteen days.  I encourage anyone who want s to improve their art to do this, because I myself noticed a big improvement from day one to day fifteen in the way I draw lions.  Even after the month of October was over, I kept on drawing daily in inks.  Highly recommended.

Legendary Lance


A set of seven Lance icons from Voltron Legendary Defenders.  His expressions were a delight to recreate, barring photoshop's slowness and threats to crash.  But I did get them done a second time, and here they are.

Voltron Lance

I had about seven sketches of this guy drawn in my sketchbook, and I liked the expression on this on the best.  My intent was to clean up all of those sketches, and I was very nearly finished the job, having saved often, when photoshop crashed and took the whole file into oblivion.  This is the only surviving image from the whole project.

Heraldic Gryphon

Found this guy in an old sketch folder, and I thought it would be fun to give him a cleanup.
