The Sorcerer from Nocturna

A friend of mine is a fan of Raistlin and the Dragonlance stories in general. I thought this would be a …

Loki, Circle Warpwolf – Heavy Warbeast

NOVA is quickly approaching again and Loki was this year’s donation.   I loved the sculpt immediately and had such fun painting it.  My photography still needs work though. I have a habit of taking and processing pictures when my eyes are tired. The pictures look great until I see them the next day, but …

Dragon, Kyra, Seoni…. done!

After working on these guys for quite some time, I finally was able to sit down and finish them up this week. It’s such a relief to be able to get home at a reasonable hour, paint uninterrupted, and actually get some commissions finished.  I love the fact that my customers are patient and forgiving …

Fearless Frost Dragon from Ral Partha

I painted this dragon for a commission and I’m pleased at how it came out. It’s mainly a black dragon, highlighted up to a shade of blue on the body and wings and a greenish grey on the scales.  I tried for glowing eyes as was in the reference I received.
