A while ago I got the ambitious idea of doing the zodiac with dragons. I got as far as Aries I may still tackle the rest of it at some point though.

You might remember this little guy from a while ago. I finally got around to coloring him, and adding his other wing The opacity airbrush give a really nice watercolor feel that works great with the pencil sketch.

I actually started this a long time ago, and just got a round to finishing it. It took a while to get those nice deep shadows the way I wanted them. And I kind of wish I did something different with the walls/floor--by the end I was getting really tired of stonework.

I'm spending the summer in Alaska, and since I can't acutally see any aurora with the 20-some hours of daylight up here, I thought I'd try drawing some.

Yay! New art! I wanted to see if I could make a convincing looking flame in photoshop, so decided to try a candle. Then I decided to add a tiny little dragon. He came out cute ^_^ I would have liked to make the candle more drippy though, and make the candle holder shinier (i.e. with reflections). Oh well--next time.

This is Aladel and her shadow, a character from my NaNoWriMo novel. I miraculously finished all 50k words and the story in less than two weeks, so, not sure what else to do for the rest of the month, i decided to do some illustrations too.

This isn't actually an illustration of a moment in the story, but rather it's the first image that came to mind when I started thinking up Aladel's character

The constellation Draco. For reference, the bright dot in the lower left quarter is the North Star.

I was playing around with my various graphics programs and came out with this sketch. She's a character in a webcomic I'm thinking of starting.

(And, no I didn't actually use colored pencils for this. I discovered Fireworks has a colored pencil pen)

I discovered a new pen in Photoshop and can only wonder why I never found it earlier ^_^ The sunset still doesn't look quite right though.

This was originally supposed to be part of the series with the griffin, phoenix and leviathan, but I ran out of time so it ended up being a series of 3. Now, over a year later, I finally got a chance to finish it!

I really like how it came out, especially the mane. It's the first time I've done hair in photoshop that actually looks like hair

In other news, I've updated my bio and have decided to start taking commissions this summer. I'm still working out the details, but if you're interested contact me via Side7 or wingling_mage@yahoo.com

The signator of my college's fencing team asked me to design a logo for t-shirst and/or patches for the fencing jackets. This was the initial idea he came to me with--it's based on Thibault's Mystic Circle (except with a griffin instead of a man, of course). The team decided it would look great on a t-shirt (yay!). I did another design for patches, which I may post later though it isn't as exciting.

This project taught me more than I ever thought I'd know about a griffin's skeletal structure

Yay! Finished it! I decided Reed Canyon needed some kind of monster, thought it came out a whole lot friendlier than I had originally planned. Maybe I'll do another one with an evil monster >

An obscure creature from the Arthur legened. I really like how the spots came out, but they made me dizzy while drawing them.
Graphite.

Another bizarre mythical creature. It's got the head of a badger, neck and tail of a lion, and haunches of a stag. Also, it's mouth reaches from ear to ear, and instead of teeth, it has ridges of bone.

Being the king of all snakes, it was said the basilisk did not travel on its belly--hence my choice of pose. The face was really annoying, mostly because of how long it took me to find a reference photo of a snake smiling at the camera.
