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!

An Abundance of Geekery

Hello! Today I am just trying to catch up with all the artwork I have been creating lately but forget to post on this blog. I will post information on each piece directly below the images! Thank you for looking!


Dean Winchester from Supernatural – Gouache portrait. Gouache is fun to work with, I should use it more :)


Gandalf from Lord of the Rings – ink pens. Beards are fun, so is wood. And that hat oddly enough!


Castiel from Supernatural – Ink pen and brush. I can’t believe I forgot to post this one! I like this one :)


Maleficent – Ink and Calligraphy pen with watercolours. what a visually stunning movie <3


Rick from The Walking Dead – Ink pen, watercolour texture added digitally. That show is so gross but I am too invested in the characters to stop watching ugh.

Flies and Spiders

Hello all!

Over the past couple days I completed some Hobbit fanart! I saw the movie 4 times and I had to get some art out of my system! I completed it on 11×14 mixed media paper, with calligraphy pen, black ink, and watercolours overtop. Spiderwebs are a lot of work. I have this piece available for sale up on my online shop! You can get this piece as a print, on shirts, bags, pillows, and more! Society6 also has art available on clocks!

Thank you for looking! More dragon art coming soon!
