So for the past couple months I have been pretty busy with a children's book, and that's why I haven't posted any new art lately!

However, I managed to create this graphite portrait of Frida Kahlo for a friend of my cousin's. I have a couple other projects in the works, including an NBC Aquarius x Hannibal crossover-type of poster. I'm hoping to find some time to complete that within the next month or so, depending on how well progress on this children's book is going.

Stay tuned! :)

Here, have a very sloppy Mason Verger sketch. ;)


I’ll create a proper portrait of him one of these days. By far one of my favorite villains. Hannibal has the most colorful characters. I love it.

I’m sure Joe Anderson will do just fine as Mason next season, but man. I’m desperately going to miss Michael Pitt. He was as perfect as you could get.

Here's a digital painting of Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully that I created last summer! I started a Mulder portrait in the same style as this but I wasn't getting anywhere with it, sadly. I may give it another go during my free time - we'll see.

I'm pretty much in love with The X-Files. :heart:

So this was a massive collaboration that I did with a friend (Ashley Thorpe) last spring. It became a study of how to combine polar coordinate worlds with digital painting. Ashley created the worlds in the painting - which were created from graphite drawings of hers. I painted the environment (birds included) that these worlds would exist in. Read more about the project in-depth here.

The final, printed painting is 5 ft x 2 ft. It is by far the biggest piece I have ever worked on!

We also won a Student Silver Addy award for this on February 21, 2015.

Here's something I've been working on and off on for the past couple weeks. Portrait of Amy Acker as Samantha Groves (aka Root) in Person of Interest. My first actually completed piece of POI fanart! (I started a Jim Caviezel drawing a couple years ago but never finished that one. I may finish it one of these days.)

Long time no talk, dA? Over the past couple years, I've been obsessing over Tumblr, so that's where most of my "social media time" is usually spent. :P

I'm still alive, and I even graduated college this past December! And I applied for graduate school. If I'm accepted, I'll be pursuing an MFA with a focus on graphic design.

I'm going to be in the process of cleaning up my deviation submissions. Maybe moving the mediocre and off-topic stuff to my scraps. And deleting the awful deviations or the deviations that didn't get much attention. I wish there was a way to mass-delete and mass-move deviations instead of doing them one by one. I have a lot of deviations that I need to get rid of.

For the past, like, month I've been going through a phase where I don't like anything that I create. To get my creative groove back I will be doing a series of portrait and character studies. Maybe experiment with a couple different styles? We'll see how it goes.

I also have quite a bit of work to post, so I might post a couple of my newer digital paintings over the next week or so. I'd like to get back to using dA more.

Happy early birthday! I know it's tomorrow (at least, DeviantART says it is), but I'm wishing you a happy birthday anyway! Especially in case I miss it. Your art is truly wonderful, and I hope you have a spectacular birthday! :)
