Sharing Multiple Drawings – Another Geralt and Ciri

My habits when it comes to artwork typically involve sporadic bursts of motivation. I often tackle one drawing at a time, spending a couple of hours on the project before I move on to something fresh. Sometimes though, I become so inspired about a topic that I work on multiple pieces concurrently or in succession. There are quite a few

Geralt and Ciri Art From The Witcher Netflix Show

Recently, season two of Netflix’s The Witcher series debuted. Back in the summer lock-down months of 2020, I wrote a bit about my impressions from season one and my fondness for the Witcher 3 video game. That game is one of the best open world RPG experiences I’ve had, right behind Skyrim and Dragon’s Dogma, so I already had positive

Thoughts on Portrait Requests

First and foremost, happy new year to all! It feels like we’re stuck in a bizarre time loop in some respects. I definitely remember thinking last year at this time, “hey maybe this pandemic business will finally settle down next year.” Well, I have the same wish now – hopefully 2022 will finally see COVID become background noise instead of

Weekend Relaxation and Unfamiliar Movies – Pandorum Drawing

One of my all-time favorite things is a nice lazy Saturday with the family. It’s a fantastic scene from my perspective: We’re all upstairs and probably still wearing whatever we slept in. My wife is reading, the kids and I are drawing. We’ve got Joy of Painting or maybe some HGTV-style show on in the background. The coffee is fresh

Narrated Walkthrough, Drawing Process Discussion

One of the early pandemic projects I started was to transition from progression .gif slides of my drawing process into full time-lapse videos. I created a YouTube channel to host them, rather than take up my precious WordPress hosting storage space with large video files. I’ve had the YouTube channel now for about a year, and in that time, I’ve

Princess Bride Part 3 – Westley and Buttercup in the Fireswamp

Where does the time go? It seems like I ask myself that a lot. It’s probably on my mind so much lately because I’m rapidly approaching four decades of stumbling around on this planet. My kids seem to be growing faster than ever, and I’m trying to capture and appreciate everything that’s happening as it happens. But it’s hard to

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
