    This is a piece I did for a private gallery. I wanted to do a cute Doctor and Dalek dynamic. They don’t always have to fight, right?

    This is another Batgirl, this time with the semi-new costume. She’s pretty close to Wonder Woman as one of my favorites as well. I absolutelly love drawing her, I can’t resist that electrifying red hair.

    Another day, another Wonder Woman… As I’ve said before, she’s my favorite heroine to draw. This is my take after the announcement of the new costume. Go WW!

    This is cute rendition of the Episode IV holding cells escape scene. I usually like to turn up the “cute” dial way up to 11 when I get the chance. Lots of people loved this at this year’s C2E2. Thank you all!

    This is sort of a semi-minimalist Spider-Gwen. I think the design for this character is amazing and I wanted to join in the fun myself.

    Probably one of the most famously romantic scenes and dialogue. At least in geek kingdom, in which I am a permanent resident. I wanted to write the famous “I love you…” “..I know” lines somewhere on this, but I couldn’t find a good place for it. Maybe I’ll write it in like a Little Golden Book style.

    My favorite video game franchise of all time. I grew up playing the first NES Zelda game. I can still remember the endless days playing it with my brother. The golden cartridge was always such an iconic characteristic of the game. When I first opened it I knew this game would be special.

    This is an Illustration I had for San Diego Comic-Con this year. I’m a huge fan of the show and I love drawing characters every chance I get. About 95% of the people who stopped by and saw it had this to say; “Sooooo cute…” Mission accomplished I think. I definitely try to make illustrations as cute as possible most of the time.

    Came back from San Diego Comic-Con late Sunday and I could not be more thankful to have spent the time with my fellow artist, friends, family. I am very lucky to have the most talented friends with whom I shared a table at the Exhibitors area. My prints and buttons were very well received and I could not be more happy with the reactions. Thank you to everyone that stopped by and talk. Thank you all! Below is the art I painted up for buttons I had at the Con. Now that I finally have time to take a breath I can guarantee more characters coming soon.

    I was so lucky to be a part of a private gallery for a tribute to the beautiful 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz”. I submitted this digital painting titled “Little Witches”. There were so many artist that contributed art in many forms; painting, sculpture, mixed media, jewelry… I was blown away by the diversity in styles and passion every artist demonstrated for the film. I was honored to have my art displayed next to all of them.

    These are a few portraits I wanted to do in a quick digital painted style. I wanted to keep them simple but expressive. I want to start developing a quicker way to get an illustration idea out. At least in this specific style. They are pretty close in likeness of the real person.. trust me. :)

  • Rock Study

    So one of my very favorite things to do is to learn new techniques and processes from other artist. I’m constantly looking to get better and I dig deep on-line and in books to soak up new ideas. There is always room to grow. There is always room to improve. And man do I have room. This is a study on Rocks. I saw a video of a phenomenal digital artist Arthur Gimaldinov. I instantly loved his digital paining style and I wanted to reproduce some rocks in the style that he uses. Arthur Gimaldinov is kind enough to post time-lapse videos of a few of his illustrations and one is the Rocks.

    Below is Arthur Gimaldinov’s rock that he demonstrates from beginning to end. Go see his deviantArt page please.

    Set of daily sketches of the new Ms. Marvel, a couple of random dwarfs, Batman, Jon Snow, and Wolverine.. Working on a digital piece at the moment, but sketching is great to sharpen up the overall drawing skill.
