Princess Bride Series Part 2 – Fezzik, Inigo, and Westley

Over the last week or so, I went on a sudden Princess Bride artwork binge. I started outlines for three different scenes! I’ve only finished one so far, but I was surprised by the sudden surge of Princess Bride-related activity. I think it was partially inspired by our recent move. As we’ve been slowly getting things unpacked, I found one

Practicing Scenery Through Video Game Art

If you’ve followed this blog for long, you may have read me roasting myself about various art-related weaknesses. Every artist, amateur and professional alike, has certain things that come easier and others that just don’t click. I’m not trying to beat myself up – it’s just part of life! And I believe that discussing art-related challenges can be a productive

Santa Taking a Cookie Break Christmas Eve

I am going to share some art out of order, which isn’t my usual approach. But I thought it would make more sense to jump right to this drawing of Santa since we’re so close to Christmas, even though it skips the line a bit. I had taken somewhat of a break recently from drawing – not really by design,

More from the Witcher, Ciri of Cintra

This is a continuation of my post last week about the Witcher Netflix show and game series. In that first post, I discussed the show in detail and shared some artwork featuring Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher himself. I mentioned that, unlike with Stranger Things, I actually caught this show during its peak popularity. Something I didn’t touch on though

The Witcher Art, Geralt of Rivia

Somewhere towards the beginning of the new COVID-19 home quarantine reality, I finally forced myself to sit down and watch The Witcher Netflix series. I’d heard a lot of positive things about it, and enjoyed playing The Witcher 3 video game, so this seemed like a sure-fire thing. It actually seemed like it could evolve into a similar situation to

Dark Tower Villain Improvements

I haven’t discussed the series in a while, but if you came across this blog any time in early 2018, you were probably greeted with a barrage of posts about the Dark Tower. Even outside of this specific series, I’m a huge Stephen King fan, but the Dark Tower books are probably my favorite in the fantasy genre. As I’ve

By Request, Frozen’s Anna and Elsa

Like so many parents, we’re doing our best to keep the little ones busy as well as ourselves. In an effort to keep myself busy, I recently wrote, illustrated, and published a children’s book called Robot Family Adventures. It’s actually free on Kindle right now, so if your kids want a short story to read, this one features robots and

New Kids Book ‘Robot Family Adventures’

Apparently, the beginning of April is book publishing time! Last year, I released a book called Pencils and Process. That one took months to write, and was a 150ish page personal account of my experiences returning to art after having been away from it for a decade. This year, my April book release is a kids book called Robot Family

Video Game Sketch Inspired by Kenshi

This write-up is going to be about a post-apocalyptic sandbox style video game called Kenshi. But it’s also going to be about sharing art that you’re not entirely satisfied with; when it doesn’t turn into what you imagined. This post, and the game Kenshi itself, actually remind me a lot of what I wrote about Pillars of Eternity in 2019

Late to the Stranger Things Party

I’ve really been slacking on my usual pattern of art and website posts. In the last two or three months, I’ve only written a couple of things, which is definitely outside of the norm. Holiday travel is my usual excuse this time of year, but I’ve also had some other things consume my leisure time. One, which isn’t the topic

Drawing Models and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

One of my favorite things about browsing the Internet is how easy it is to randomly discover something new. That could involve stumbling upon an informative subreddit, finding a great thread of funny images, or even learning about something cool you’d want to buy. Even better, but a bit more rare, is when finding one cool thing leads you down

Improving with the Tablet and Sketchbook App

In the previous post, I discussed my purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and decision to try digital artwork again. My first experience with a tablet designed strictly for drawing in conjunction with a computer screen (XP-Pen Deco 01) did not go smoothly, and I pretty quickly abandoned the experiment. This time though, I felt much more comfortable using

A Dark Tower Redo, One Year Comparison

At the start of 2018, I finished what has become one of my favorite fiction novel series; The Dark Tower by Stephen King. If you’re not familiar, the story follows Roland the Gunslinger on his quest to fix a ruined world. He gains some great companions along the way, and has to make difficult choices that will affect his world
