Digital Portfolio

This is the stuff I've done for digital portfolio so far this semester. I think I got better pieces out of this class than in narrative painting last semester. I was trying to do some more portraiture for this class because I need to get better at it.

I contacted artists on DA asking if they had stories I could use for illustrations for this class. Got lots of half-assed stuff (sorry guys, don't hurt me!) and some weird stuff too, but there were some others that were somewhat promising. This one was for a character called Lilith. She's like an ancient Egyptian turned vampire through her use of blood magic.

This was a mock cover for ~ruzkin's book, Century of Sand. Yeah, portraits!

Then I started looking up lore for Legend of the Cryptids cards and doing my own take on them. This one is called Lantern Goblin Laborer. It's about goblins that deliver jack o lanterns to villages at Halloween. Definitely my favorite piece from this semester and it got into the spring show too!

"Dorothy, Magician of Hope". It's about wicked witches terrorizing Oz and Dorothy coming back as a spellsword to combat them. I really like this one too.
