The Aussie Butcher

Card game Illustration;  I pushed the details here more than I usually do for a relatively small sized Illustration, but it was a lot of fun working on the atmosphere, rain effects, drops, etc. so I went with it.   The effects mentioned were very time consuming, but I feel that they add a lot of life and depth to the image.

Happy Father's Day

This is a portrait of my Father painted as a gift to celebrate Farther's Day.  My father has been incredibly supportive of me as an artist, and he pushed me very hard growing up to refine my technique as best as I can.  He also gave great critiques and feedback on what to improve on.  Although he's not an artist himself, he definitely has a great eye for art and knows what's working and what's not in regards to creating an image.  I wanted to experiment a lot with this painting, using a cooler color scheme than I'm used to and trying to create a more ethereal feeling with this painting, which I feel I achieved.  With that said, Happy Farther's Day to all!
