My original intent with this image was to show something more dramatic, with the hands thrust down and invoking flames. I decided to go a more contemplative route instead; this illustration will sit right next to the sword from the prior post. I'm a little concerned that both images alongside each other will present too much verticality on the page, but I have to soldier on.

I finally found some time on a Saturday to get back to work. This is my cover image for "Chapter 1: Getting Started". The nice thing about doing my own book is that I'm not beholden to anyone's NDA. Plus, I still don't know if I'm ever going to publish...

The Art Order is doing a Tank Girl challenge! I had to participate since Tank Girl is awesome and basically the punkest thing ever. It's due tonight and I just barely got this done in time. I'm pretty pleased with it, all things considered. Plus, I'm really looking forward to all the other submissions since the best thing about this character, in my opinion, is all the insane outfits.

I've re-done the 'Miracles' illustration for my book and I must say I am very proud of this image and it's maybe my best digital work yet. This, along with the Nymph Challenge I did for Art Order, have felt like major leaps forward. I started with a pretty clear reference to my favorite American painter: John Singer Sargent.
