Damn-dirty-Ape Concept

I am having a tough time calibrating my monitors, so my apologies if the image is a bit dark.
This was really fun to play around with as I had not done an ape concept before.
If this guy was walking around my hood, I'd be terrified. I want to know what he is thinking!
I'd also like to know what you think...

Succubus Concept

Here is a concept for a succubus that I finished but will be redoing. I thought of her as a young woman that could not age but was centuries old and cursed with a disastrous appearance. Banished to spend eternity alone, she was only surrounded by the riches of men who would attempt to overtake her wealth, only to perish at her hand.

Pterosaur - Hornbill concept art (Version2)

As promised, here is the Pterosaur-Hornbill concept Version 2! He is a little more whimsical, less-sinister looking than the first concept.

Appreciation for birds

There are two sounds that when I hear them I stop whatever I am doing and smile... the "croak" of a crow and the "twip twip" of a hummingbird ♥ Until recently, I didn't realize how much I appreciated birds and how large of a role they play on our planet. Had the women in my family not been birdwatchers I probably would still not understand them

Here is a bird/pterosaur-like creature I am working on. WIP

All the lovely unicorns...

A lot has been going on lately, and I fear I have neglected my blog. I am studying creature design at this moment in time and putting all of my energy into it. That being said, I will be posting some new stuff super soon! Also on the horizon, I am working on TWO paintings for Rothik Art Haus in Orange County for two separate up-coming shows. So I guess you could say this is a teaser post, but to keep an eye out for new schwag coming from this very blog. I am striving to make this year very productive and I have already seen growth in my process and technique.

Here is a teaser photo for a painting I am working on for Rothik...
