|Bambarella -- 432 x 480
It was my first deliberate attempt at painting on the computer, so I decided to make it a tribute to two favorite old movies (apologies to Walt and Jane). It took me about 40 hours to color it with the mouse in Aldus Photostyler.
|Legend the Griffin Bard
-- 400 x 468 Jpeg, 75K
My anthropomorphic griffin roleplaying character. This is my sketch of the character design done for me by one of my favorite artists, Lela Dowling.
|Portrait of Qualin -- 1024
x 768 Jpeg, 184K
This was my first portrait of a friend's roleplaying character. Qualin is a dragon-morph that can become human (or vice versa). Although he isn't supposed to be magic, I added a glow effect so I could play around with hand-painted light textures.
|Wolfingham Forest -- 800
x 600 Jpeg, 160K
A banner for a friend's roleplaying area on PowWow. I picked up the impressionistic oil painted background look from Bob Ross's "happy trees". The characters were inspired by the art of Monika Livingstone.
|The Swan Princess, Take 2
-- 800 x 600 Jpeg, 142K
Ever wonder what would happen if the Hero and the Villain in the Swan Princess reached a Peace Accord? A tongue-in-beak tribute to the animated movie, painted with Painter 4 and the ArtPad.
|Enchanted Sea -- 800 x
600 Jpeg, 81K
This was one of those lucky accidents of playing around with Bryce textures until something weird happens. I tried to duplicate later, and couldn't.
|Blue Sky -- 640 x 480 Jpeg,
For a friend on IRC, inspired by the Pink Floyd song. My first attempt at importing 2D clip-art into a 3D scene.
|The Wishing-Beast's Realm
-- 640 x 640 Jpeg, 95K
An illustration for a children's story in progress, rendered in Bryce 2.
|The Wishing-Beast's Realm, version 2
-- 800 x 600 Jpeg, 109K
The same scene in Bryce 3D, with a shining castle and crystal bridges. This scene works from any point of view, even right down on a bridge or inside the crystal cave, so I can use it for a lot of the story's illustrations.
