Demon Talker

This is the book cover illustration I recently completed for SM Blooding's "Demons Are Jackasses: A Demon Talker Novel". I always wanted to paint an exorcism scene (I'm a huge fan of horror films, most especially "The Exorcist") so I was more than happy to jump to the opportunity to do so. Needless to say, I had an absolute blast painting this. The expression on the possessed figure was particularly very fun to paint, I admit. The most challenging aspect of this painting was the priest; Initially I painted him as a bishop, but it didn't fit well with the scene so I chose something a bit more casual, which fit quite well I must say.

Establish Confidence

One of the many paintings I created for a card game publisher. The card itself is much smaller than the size you see here, so I was careful not to go too crazy with the detailing. I was going for a very sci-fi feel with this one, something similar to 'Blade Runner' in terms of stylization. The figures in the image represents three close friends as well, hopefully I got that point across!
