Guild Wars Art Contest

Hey everyone,

Here is a contest entry I just finished. It is for the Guild Wars Wintersday Art Contest. The basic idea was to do something related to the winter celebration on Guild Wars, so I decided on an epic snowball fight! Hope you all enjoy!

Oh, and Happy New Year! 2010 has been a wonderful year. I've been able to meet great people, go see amazing places, and learn so much about art and life. Going to Tokyo was definitely a highlight of my year. Being able to see the differences and similarities of our cultures opened my eyes in so many ways. I have a new appreciation and respect for the Japanese way of life. I'm very thankful to God for everything I have. Without Him, I would have nothing. He's been very generous! It's crazy to look back over not only this year, but also my life, and see just how crazy yet awesome it's been.

I guess this wraps up the year! Again, I'm thankful for everything that has happened in the past year, and excited to see what 2011 brings!

My new years resolution? Probably to update my blog more often. Maybe to wash my car or something.

Extra Stuff

Hello! It's been a little while since I've posted. School's been keeping me busy, but not too busy to make some extra art. Here are two pieces I have done on the side while I've been at school.

This ink illustration was submitted for the DEEP anthology. To explain the process, first I received a piece written by an author out of Savannah and created a few illustrations to go with it in the book. Then artist will look over them and choose which one he/she wants, and, finally, it will be in the book. This is my favorite one.

I really enjoyed this entire project because I got to sumi it up! This piece was created entirely from ink. It was refreshing to get away from all the pencil work I've been doing and just slap some ink down.

This digital illustration is going to be showcased at the SCAD Illustration Club's Urban Legends show this Saturday night (Oct. 30) at the Savannah Mall. I titled it "A Guest for Dinner." I got to dabble with color in this image, another thing I don't get much of in my major-related work.

That's all for now, but I'll be uploading more when I get the chance. Thanks for checking it out, and leave feedback if you have any!

Trees and such

I have been working on my landscape painting and trees lately. Here are two digital paintings I did to test out techniques from Rich Anderson's tutorial. I'll link the tutorial below, and his blog. Definitely check it out if you are interested in doing digital painting. It's worth every penny. He has a very distinct style that is vibrant and completely different from mine. It was nice to mix up the approach for these.

I'm thankful for the time and the inspiration I've had this summer to do some work. God has been good to me in so many ways. School is starting this week, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'll have plenty to post soon!

Feel free to leave comments, and I hope you enjoy the art! Here are the links.


These are a few photos of the Ecorché I completed last quarter. It is approximately two feet tall and was sculpted from Jolly King Clay.
