I know my folks love stuff like this, so I painted a landscape picture of our house nestled in the snowy wonderland. I did it with acrylic paint on a standard canvas, but go figure I forgot my paint brushes back in Indiana, so this painting was done entirely using my mother's make-up brushes :P (I had her permission btw)

I know I've said it about a billion times, but why not again? Ok, for realthe time..THIS is the style of backgrounds Jimi and I are going with for our film. End.

The first image is done purely on the computer while the second one is done with watercolor and sepia ink. You chose which looks better :)

Wendel, the character in my novel, loves to daydream...and in one sequence he imagines this world up in the clouds, a city called Avenclou (proounced Ay-ven-cl-ow)...In this peaceful realm the people here glide to wherever they need to go. They cannot fly, they can only glide. There are numerous geiser wind stations located all over Avenclou. These are powerful upward erupting wind gusts that propel an Avenclou high into the air so that they may glide to where ever they so choose...This is an illustration of Wendel would look like if he were an Avenclou.

Here's a sketch of the character in my NaNoWriMo book...Wendel doesn't usually look like this, only when his cursed inner shadow demon decides to come out and...play.
Also his raccoon, Bandit, is sitting nicely on his back.
A sketch I did in church...an elderly woman holding her blanket tight. Protecting herself from the wintery wind.
I've recently been into this style of adding decorative detail along the animals with pen and ink. I really like how this one turned out.
For all of you who know don't know about Zora's, they are a fishlike humanoid race found in the wonderful land of Hyrule. This is my take on what a female one might look like. It started as a quick sketch during one of my classes, but I couldn't stop there.

Just a muted color scheme doodle I was playing with this afternoon...it might be an interesting contrast to stick with more jagged scenery and keep the characters round and curved. But who knows!

I love doodling in ink really small and then blowing it up, I love the texture when the ink subtly bleeds away from the lines.

Here's some more concept art still, you should just get used to it cuz there's gonna be a lot of this. We're still tweaking it, but mostly we think this is the style we want to go for.
This is some more concept art for Jimi and I's senior project. This one shows Lil' Tiger giving her gentle spirit to baby man...and I can't take all the credit for this picture, Jimi drew the baby and I colored and did everything else...teamwork!

The field of cornstalks whisks to and fro...a figure stands still amongst the swaying...but he is not to be feared, for he is a mysterious character Fencewyck is. They say he only comes to life when a child who has not yet lost his imagination and dreams, approaches. Only the children can tell his story, for everyone else has lost their dreams...

This is a scarecrow character that I came up with...he's not done quite yet. When he's all finished I'll come up with a little tiny back story for him and everyone will be happy.
A good ol before and after shot of this pixie I've been drawing here and there...I sketched her out in Sketchbook Pro, and then finished her up in Photoshop. I had been dying to use some cool fabric textures that I got ahold of.

A vintage reminder found amongst the cluttered filth of a rusty attic space...dust covering this piece of a once proud past...memories of adventure, death, crime, and justice that faded over time, until they were forgotten completely...but a glimpse is seen, and is all we have. Hold to it...and never forget...

More Concept art I did playing with the same style as the Tiger below. I drew the macaw in Painter as well as colored him, and then did some photoshop layering, blah blah-bam, tree top hide-away...I like how creepy he turned out :)

This one took me awhile but I am rather pleased how it turned out. I just abstractly cut out a lot of grass, leaves, and tree layers...added some depth blurs, some lights beams and little dust lights along with the saturated greens and browns, then BAM--jungle :P
