Another piece released for StarCityGames.com!
This one was a weird one. Initially, the plan was to have cute/whimsical pieces by me interspersed with more traditional fantasy fare by another artist. The other artist fell through, but deadlines are deadlines, so they asked me to step in- and out of my comfort zone!
This piece actually felt a bit like a throwback. Before I went to art school, I was a lot more interested in realism/concept art/etc, and I used to do paintings like this a lot.. mostly as World of Warcraft fanart. :P (You can see some here!)
It was pretty cool to do something so different and challengingl I learned a lot about how my workflow and preferences have changed over the years. :)
Lastly - this piece would not have been possible without my amazing model, Paul. :D <3 <3
