Brain in a Jar
30min. spitpaint, Photoshop CC2017 .. Pretty quick, lots of easy tricks.. like drawing one leg and cloning it 4 times then painting over that, painting the top part of the cannister and duplicating that to serve as a base for the bottom, etc. etc. Fun, I mean brains in jars are fun, so doubly fun :)
Eshra, Salek Sar's Champion
Hero card for the next Fields of Eleria set hehe. The Acolyte of Embers gets an evolution of sorts, more powerful, more damaging to your own troops, a little more expensive. But for now she is the archmage's champion and in fire and ember she shall serve.
Zara Ra, Soulflayer
Character concept art/card illustration for the upcoming deck building game "Shards of Infinity" by Stone Blade Entertainment and UltraPro International. I was honored to work on both the concept design for different factions for the game as well as actual card art that will get released :) Lot of fun stuff to come :)

I'm swamped with work. Swamped. But not just art-related stuff, which I'm superduper grateful for, but my regular 9-to-5 with my family's business is going through some busy times, too.  All and all this means that sleep is kicked off to the side until the weekend and I feel like I'm in college again... only I'm a bit older now and not half as spry when I get 4hrs of sleep.. :)  You know how they say you should do things "for the love"?  I'm doing things for the love right now, it feels like exercise, like that almost acidic burn that's kind of good to feel from time to time.  The next couple months will be really crazy then things will slow down come fall... but December... whoo boy... that'll be a time to buckle down and Just Do It™.

I can't wait to get the art for my game done because then I can piece all the pieces together and start showing you folks what I'm working on.  A couple people have guessed correctly, it's actually not a terribly well-hidden secret lol, but yeah... it's fun, a bucket list kind of project that I'll be happy with completing whether it sells 2 copies or 2,000,000 copies.  Reviewing my personal projects list, I seem to gravtitate towards niche markets, like the iOS games I like to work on are turn-based RPGs, basically the smallest sliver of marketshare you can fight for in the App Store haha :D  This personal project is kind of along those lines, but it's fun and it'll be mine.

Well, we're over halfway done with June, I'm about 3 or 4 weeks behind schedule, but it's fine..things will get done, as they always have, and this is something I *will* finish this year and then.... insanity :)
