King Under the Mountain

Oh this poor neglected blog. Sorry WordPress but Tumblr and Facebook are just sooo much easier to update!

Anyway, here is another Hobbit painting I finished a little while ago! This one is acrylic paint on canvas board. I really like how this one turned out, so he is custom framed and hanging on my wall! I forgot how much of a pain mountains are….landscapes are not my strongest area. At least trees and fur are fun!

Thank you for looking! Check out this piece on my society6 page, he looks really good on a phone!

Rainforest Dragon

Hello!

I finished another oil painting! Not much to say about it, I worked on it to relieve stress, and had a lot of fun with the colours! Oil Paints on an 8x10in Canvas, available in various forms at my shop!

I am just wrapping up my current job! I was illustrating a book that educates kids on a rare genetic disorder. I had a lot of fun working on it, and if I get permission I will post some pages here! I have a few possible jobs lined up to chase after next, murals, books, etc. I also might try to sell at a couple local comic conventions! A lot of work and money to plan out but HOPEFULLY I can make some money on it!

More Supernatural fanart coming soon!

Thank you for looking!
