Frost Giant

This is my own take on Frost Giants. This is a Frost Giant Dragon Priest. Often when i work on a character I will create a backstory to help the team im on and whoever else might be working on it to better understand my designs. I have full stories like this for every single character I make, though I…

German Soldier Study

This soldier is armed with the G36 assault rifle/AG36 grenade launcher and is wearing a new modular vest. This is a study that I did of a real soldier. He is part of a series of sketches and paintings I am working on of special ops of the world. I am also particularly interested in finding ways to speed up…

I painted this image in Photoshop…

Chaotic TCG: Elemental Orchid

Chaotic TCG: Water Orchid

This is a special orchid that grows in an elemental valley. It can only be cut using magic, and is made entirely of water. I found it really tricky to do, and I painted each layer of petals seperately then composited them and painted thier refractions one at a time till the distortion effect was achieved.

Belt of the Phoenix

Chaotic TCG: Belt of the Phoenix

With this belt the wearer can control a phoenix to come to their aid in combat.   Painting a red belt on a reddish character was difficult, so i tried to play up the variations of warm shades like terracotta, oranges, browns, etc. and used just a tiny bit of cool gray on the phoenix. Green hues worked well to…
