Sometimes it isn't the amount of soldiers that go into battle but the resolve of those who band together to fight the good fight. I scanned in a rough sketch and then created this piece entirely in Adobe Illustrator.

The Popover

The Popover

This is the third time this week. The Carpanio family is considering moving across village to avoid the popover of the purple ponashindo dragon. He's just so pushy. This piece started out a colored pencil drawing. I scanned it in and then painted it in Photoshop.

The Flying Norseman

Upon occasion The Flying Norseman touches down upon the Soranson sea. He likes to meet the creatures that dwell along the coastlines. On this particular day he met a seemingly friendly sea dragon. Not all the creatures in the Soranson sea are friendly. The Flying Norseman must always discern the attitude of all the creatures he meets. He will offer his hand in friendship to all that he may encounter.

This is a mixed media piece. I used a combination of my own photographs and illustrations in Adobe Illustrator.

While in flight to the Algation Mountains the Flying Norseman encounters an unusual flying creature. His pilot tells him that it is an Eaglotome. Apparently the Eaglotome is a very curious creature and isn't shy at all.

Using Photoshop and Illustrator I wanted this piece to have a sense of motion.
