Deep Forest

This illustration was created for the Gnomon Workshop contest "Beauty and the Beast."

This is a concept design for a ground dwelling "shrub crawler," a creature that slowly traverses the forest floor, camouflaged by the moss and plant growth on it's back and tail. These creatures are practically undetectable when huddle amongst the crevices of shrubs and large roots.

Website Redesigned!

I've redesigned my personal website!

My goal is to be much more direct with the content. Though I won't be displaying as many images as before, I have learned that it is best to only show one's best in a portfolio.

Please tell me what you think, or if you find anything that is not working.

I'm trying to prevent myself from falling into the trap of one genre, striking a balance between fantasy monsters and fanciful beauty.

It's not hard, I enjoy them both.
