Wedding Portrait

Here's a commission I finished recently for some wonderful friends. This portrait is the product of many pots of coffee, sore wrists and tons of reference. I had initially attempted to draw out the lace of her dress properly, but decided to simplify and go impressionistic with the fabric. Still, overall, I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

An Hommage to Dark Crystal and Labyrinth

This tattoo design was a recent commission for a friend of mine that adores Jim Henson's Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. The two films inspired generations with their awe-inspiring designs, fantastical storytelling, and are prime examples of puppet mastery. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this piece.

The final illustration was drawn, inked and colored in Adobe Photoshop, CS5.
