I love goldfish and admittedly have a bit of an obsession... Probably started with Koi fish, both are part of the carp families and known to be quite hardy, which means I'm less likely to accidentally kill them. I have a ton of unscanned fish sketches that I might post later.

I realized much later that the picture is very center heavy. I'll have to make sure I don't do that next time.

Painting study of a photograph.

Painting study of Hiroshima. The original photograph was found on trekearth and unfortunately was not tagged any of the obvious content, so I could not find the photographer to credit again. I experimented with several brushes.

First book picture!

This was a book I was working on for a class, sort of gathering all of my thoughts on a world I was building which is the same one for my senior studio pictures though I began picturing a slightly more realistic style.

The bases of the shisas- closer to what they would be in the game. Shisa come in pairs, one female (mouth open) and male (mouth closed)

A few things, some old some new.

Concept for a swamp predator

Older quick piece I did, a goblin artificer.

One down!

One more post for today, this is my first finished concept for my senior studio! Probably one of my favorite pieces.

More sketches

 Some creature concepts I was throwing around.
Both of these are concepts for a big eyed lemur with bioluminescent spots. I like some stuff from both variations. I hoped to have a more finalized version made soon if I catch a breather from school. The other thing at the top left of the right page is a water mole.

Messing around with hoofed animals which I did not have a lot of practice in. Middle is my favorite, based partially of tapirs, various antelopes and ancient carnivore ungulates.

I like platypus (platypi?), so I was messing with a more land based version, converting its very fin like limbs into ones more similar to otters and multiplying it's poison stinger.
