Okotto, Nago, Beautiful and Strong

A few months ago I have the absolute pleasure for creating work for a Miyazaki Tribute show at SketchPad Gallery in San Francisco. I decided I'd illustrate Nago from Princess Mononoke in his peaceful form, before he lost himself. I produced two original pieces in the creation of this illustration; a pencil and a painting.

The pencils I use tend to be on the softer side and don't do well with lots of painting over top, especially on a painting this detailed. So instead, once the pencil is finished, I scan it in and reprint it as a giclee print on hot press watercolor paper. This way, I can preserve my pencil work underneath the gouache. 

I tend to layer quite a bit with gouache, staining and building up values slowly. Overall, this piece took about 3-4 days to complete. Here's the final image: 

The final image measures 9x12 and is gouache on hot press watercolor paper. Thanks so much for looking!

Conures, Reptilian Folk and Doodlies! 

Hey everyone! I'm always so inspired by all of the work on here! I've been keeping busy with getting ready for Spectrum Art Live this month as well as new projects. Here are a few things I've made recently:


I like to doodle when I drink my tea. This is just a way to warm up in the morning and to have fun doodling out fun ideas without any pressure:

If you'd like to see a few more pages you can do so on my blog:

What's fun about doodlies, is you can develop them further later! So I chose one from another page and took it to finish:


Of course, drawing real animals is always fun! Here's a sun conure:


And last but not least, here's a reptilian bloke for fun:
