This is an illustration of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. I wanted to give a very lively, lush feel to the image to really help it pop, so I opted for a very elegant color scheme. This image was fairly challenging to paint, but I received a ton of feedback from CGArtnexus.Com, and the feedback I received was incredible; I wouldn't have been able to achieve this level of quality without the input I received, so a big shout out to that forum! Aphrodite is just one of the many Greek mythological figures I'm planning to paint, as I'm very much inspired by those tales and am very much looking forward to painting some more!

This was painted for Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon 2014 Fan Art Contest. Initially it was just going to be a pretty standard portrait, but I decided I wanted to give the image a bit more depth so I added the fairy and played up the details in the environment as much as I could. The detailing for this piece was very time consuming, but I wanted to make it as refined and detailed as I possibly could. Overall, I'm quite pleased with how this image turned out.

A commissioned piece. This was a lot of fun to paint, haven't had this much fun with a project for a while! I was asked to paint two dogs and a cat in a humorous way, and these are the results. I really wanted to give this image personality so I decided to dress them up a bit which really helped bring them to life.
