King Of The Throne

A commissioned piece for a magazine cover, the model was Tuface Idibia.  I was asked to illustrate him as a King, so I was definitely going for an iconic and luxurious look with this one.  Painting this was a lot of fun, the lighting in particular was a lot of fun to paint.  I enjoyed the color palette as well, warm tones are definitely my strong point so I was quite comfortable handling this image.

Kingdoms Fall

This is a commissioned portrait.  I was given a ton of freedom for this painting, as I was asked to paint a woman wielding a sword.  I wanted to give the image a bit more of a fantastical feeling as well, as that style suits me well.  Overall I'm extremely pleased with the painting, and consider it one of my strongest portraits.  The hair in particular is something I'm very proud of;  Hair has always been something I never used to enjoy painting in all honesty, but I seem to have gotten the hang of it now it seems.

Necromancer King

This painting was commissioned as game splash screen.  I was asked to illustrate a Necromancer King and was given a great deal of freedom on how to depict him, so this project was an absolute blast.  Really enjoyed playing with the lighting effects here as well to give it a dynamic look.  Overall I'm quite pleased with this image.
