This is one of my favorite pieces. It depicts my evil sorceress character using her unholy magic and blasphemous alchemy to control her demonic abomination. 


This is a piece I finished a few months ago. My favorite aspect of this pic is the warning notification at the top; it just made sense to me that a military base that dealt with inter dimensional monsters would have an alert setting worse than red.

This is a piece I started and finished last week; a sci-fi character from a story I'm working on. Interrogating her prisoners proved to be a total failure; her masochistic demeanor dictates that she must punish herself.

Porno ABC's

These are pieces I did for my illustration class two terms ago. I wanted to do dirty illustrated letters while making the characters rather cute and innocent; this way they would be fun and quirky rather than just nasty. If nothing else I think they're at least funny.

Character Poses

Yet another project from Costumed Figure Drawing. We were given five different cartoon characters and had to choose 6 poses to put them all in. Loved how this one turned out.

Costumed Figure Drawing Sketches

This is a collection of my favorite sketches from Costumed Figure Drawing. The models had some interesting costume choices including a zombie bride and a a bizarro Queen of Hearts. 

Costumed Figure Drawing

These first Images are school projects from my Costumed Figure Drawing class. So far as style goes these deviate a lot from what my characters usually look like but they were lots of fun to do. Plus they allowed me to explore deeper into exaggerated poses and shapes.
