Cover Art for Pathfinder's "Chronicle of the Righteous"

Whoo, I can finally show some art again that has nothing to do with cute fashionistas or colorful cartoon creatures ;D (however, if you are interested in cute fashionistas, please may I refer to my website ->

Here's the cover artwork for Paizo's upcoming "Chronicle of the Righteous". Plus, I thought I throw in the sketch as well to show you all how messy I actually can be sometimes. There was a time earlier in my career as a freelance illustrator, where I created beautiful clean and sharp sketches prior to my paintings. Those times are gone as you can see ;(

Anyways, enjoy! And I hope to be able to show stuff more frequently again in future.

Recent Works - Mushrooms, Dragons, and Kaiju

I have had a several projects all come out at about the same time so I figured I would just lump them all together into one post. Some of these were done relatively recently and some are at least a year old now.

The first piece is from issue 420 of Dragon magazine. I was asked to design and illustrate the lord of all myconids... who is insane... but a good mushroom man all the same.

The next two pieces are the first of the Smaug pieces I was asked to create. You might remember the three Smaug pieces that I had come out this past August for the Gen Con 2012 Battle for Lake-Town deck. Those pieces were done months after I was asked to originally design Smaug for Fantasy Flight Games and to do these two illustrations. It was nice to have a chance to go back and revisit and build upon the Smaug design for the later cards, but this is where they all began.

Lastly is my contribution to the most recent expansion to the Legend of the Five Rings CCG, Torn Asunder. They wanted a giant monster demon that appeared capable of destroying whole provinces. It was hard to not make my very own Kaiju... so I gave in and made one...
