Same deal, more practicing :) This one took about 45 minutes. This is a work of fan art, I do not claim copyright, it was done purely for educational purposes.

Playing with Magic Cards.

Here is my take on "Plains".  Photoshop, about an hour and 15 minutes.

Korra Plate Extension

I think I'm going to try warming up with one of these for the next couple of days.  Spent about 45 minutes on this one, tried to make it a bit more complex in the parts I painted.

Character design

I'll probably colour him again in photoshop, but I did a quick watercolour tonight after I scanned the B&W drawing, mostly just for fun.

Legend of Korra plate extension

Just for fun, I took a screenshot from "Legend of Korra", and then made it bigger and did a plate extension.  Took about 15 minutes.

As the City Burns

Again, trying to move away from photo-textures and paint it "for real".  Gave myself a hard 2 hour time limit.

Tell me....

Doing a quick propaganda poster for the Zig-A-Zigallery Spice Girls show in Vancouver on July 7th.  Gods help me.

The Ancient Protector

Was thinking of the castles the British built in Wales to help keep the populace in line back in the 11th century.  Just about 2 hours, photoshop.  Wanted to move away from the photo look a little bit, try for more painterly.
