Orlon Cray

This was a commission I recently completed. I had a lot of freedom in this one - I was asked to paint a pail villain wielding a sword with a kilod on his ear; The rest was up to my imagination. I also took the time to focus a lot more on the environment, which I feel has been lacking with my recent paintings. I spent quite some time on it, but the effort was well worth it.

This is a book cover illustration I illustrated for a novel titled 'Fiends'. The painting depicts one of the novel's villains named 'Tattoo', a twisted psychopath who excises tattoos from his victims. I wanted this image to be very dark, borderline disturbing even, so I made sure I spent quite some time conveying this theme. Lots of time was spent spent on the details, specifically for the skin, which was a lot of fun to paint.

Speedpaints - Bouguereau studies

I recently found some time to complete a couple of Bouguereau studies, and learned a great deal as always, especially in regards to how to handle colors and skin tones.
