The Five Dragons

Here is a set of freelance drawings I did for one of my regular clients. They are the human forms of each of the dragons depicted behind them. The dragons are based on the original drawings by Todd Lockwood for D&D. The characters are based on descriptions from the client with several references that I was able to add my own flair to. I'm fairly happy with how these turned out. This is definitley my favorite type of freelance work that I've gotten so far. If anyone would like to commission me just send me an e-mail at and I will get back to you asap with my prices and availability.

Trying my hand at traditional painting again

This was a project for school where we had to do an illustration of 2 people talking. I had some problems settling on a composition I liked, and I'm still not %100 satisfied with the outcome. However going back to traditional was fun. I'm pretty certain that I want to continue using a combination of watercolor and prismacolors of board (which is what this is) It feels very natural and intuitive for me.
