About Me

My photo
As a child one of my favorite pastimes was to watch and play video games. I loved discovering the new worlds and all of the different life and stories within. In my work I want to bring this feeling of discovery and adventure to the viewer. I want to immerse them in the possibilities of the unknown and explore new spaces, heroes, villains, and species. I try to combine reality and history to make the most believable worlds possible, while still being firmly rooted in fantasy. I do extensive research on culture and societal norms before beginning a piece and use this research to build convincing concept pieces. My work reflects my interests in Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Medieval/Renaissance/Feudal society, as well as more whimsical elements like Alice in Wonderland and Mythologies from all over the globe. With every piece I do I try to push it further than my last, whether it be in concept or in execution. I want to challenge what people expect when they think of fantasy and give them places and people that they wouldn’t have considered before.

More progress

Still nothing concrete. I probably could have finished this ages ago but I keep changing things and experimenting and otherwise procrastinating on finishing it up sooo...

Full image is where I'm currently at. Thinking about changing some colors/shadows/texture but it's coming along.

The other is just a close up in the girls face since you can't really see it in the full image. I need to throw some dirt at her but, seeing as I haven't really done any portraits from imagination in..months? I'm pretty pleased with it.
