Dungeon Delve Challenge

I'm actually awaiting the arrival of my flight at Port Columbus right now, so I thought I would take this time to post my entry for the Art Order Dungeon Delve challenge. I loved making this, I don't do many illustrations in the fantasy genre so this was a breath of putrid dungeon air. It depicts a wounded knight behind enemy lines stumbling through a dark dungeon full of danger and his surroundings don't inspire much hope. His armor gets heavier with every step as he attempts to dislodge an arrow from his side and his only comfort is his flickering torch...buts it's only a matter of time before the darkness consumes them both! With all the foreboding aside this was fun to paint, my favorite areas being the one eyed corpse at the knight's feet, and the unnerving wall motif of a cave beast eating knight's of old
... much like the one lost.

I've been in serious art mode lately

I did these earlier today, some concepts for a alligator-esque monster. The last one is a little silly... I blame the influence that battle toads had on me as a child :P 

More landscapes

More landscape practice; these were done relatively fast.

Another landscape

I haven't done a jungle scene so this was a fun side project with all the texture and varying light.
The basic idea was a girl comes across an ancient abandoned robot and she's trying to fix the rusty guy when all of a sudden the lights turn on! (not sure if it's a good thing, might be a killer robot or an old sentinel from x-men haha)  Also I got the chance to see Tangled and if you haven't seen it yet you should it's incredibly funny and of course artistically amazing.
