An oil painting I did for the March Monster Madness competition at www.theillustrationboard.com. I finished this a couple months ago, but just got around to doing some digital touch ups so I could put it in my portfolio. This is the largest oil painted illustration I have ever done and was a big challenge and was a lot of fun. I wouldn't mind doing some more Godzilla illustrations for fun. Obviously Phil Hale was a big influence for the piece.

I created this tutorial for my friend's forum, www.theillustrationboard.com a month or so ago and finally got around to posting it on my blog. Please check out is forum and sign up. Right now the forum is close nit, but we are trying to expand it and would love to see more people with different backgrounds posting up there.

Another skull painting and some sketches from the aquarium. For this painting I decided to go for a pick out approach. While I like how the skull came out, I feel though at process itself was difficult. I haven't done a pick out in years though. I am thinking about starting my paintings more thinly going for a more Frazetta feel first, then painting opaquely on top.

Here are a handful of paintings that I have done recently. These were done in class and at home. I am trying to become a better painter so I can do more of my illustrations strictly in oil. It has been a lot of fun doing these and seeing my growth over the last 2 semesters.

Haven't posted in awhile, been pretty busy. Here is a piece I did for Discover A Muse challenge hosted by Jon Schindehette. We have to create an image of Veronika Kotlajic, who was the muse for the project. I had several ideas before I finally went with what I did. For this piece I wanted to create something along the lines of Oneechanbara, but make it more westernized. So I made her into a sexy nun zombie slayer.
