The Griffin’s Nest

Well, I swore I wasn’t going to do so much detail on these things from now on, and I think I might have just failed. This graceful griffin is taking the place of the “Six Geese-a-Laying” and simply refused to be uncomplicated. I honestly intended to do a rough, sketchy style for this one, but…

Golden Rings of Power

It’s day five, and “Five Golden Rings” seemed suitable for only one thing; being infused with magic and fitted to a gauntlet of immense power. This skilled caster’s already impressive powers are significantly amplified by the use of the five rings, and one can only hope that he will use his new-found capabilities for good…

Calling Forth the Birds

Well, it’s day four, and I needed “Four Calling Birds” so I thought the simplest solution was to have a lady spell-caster summon them. I’m not sure why I thought to have her summoning the birds from her dress, but it somehow seems to work. That little green glow by her face is the gem…

Facing the Cockatrice

For the “Three French Hens” on the third day of my Epic Fantasy Twelve Days of Christmas, I’ve done a lone warrior facing off with a cockatrice. You know, those dragon/bird type things that turn you to stone if you look at them. A cockatrice seemed like the closest fantasy equivalent to a hen that…

Turtle Drakes Collide

It’s day two of my Epic Fantasy Twelve Days of Christmas, and for my second piece I decided to represent Two Turtle Doves with much more epic Turtle Drakes. These two are not the lovey-dovey pair you think of when you think of Turtle Doves, in fact, they are trying to kill each other. I…

Phoenix of the Ash

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has a grand Christmas Day. Now, in celebration of Christmas I wanted to do something special, so I thought I would attempt to do epic fantasy styled art, themed after The Twelve Days of Christmas. Mostly because when I randomly sketch something, it usually turns into something fantasy related. It’s…

Centaur and Elf

I did this picture back in 2012, and just never got around to scanning or posting it. I chose today to post this because today is Lefthanders Day, and my archer just so happens to be left-handed. I didn’t intentionally do that to be honest, it was entirely composition related, but it would be rather…

Exotic Blue Wizard

The final piece in my Red, White and Blue series is this Blue Wizard. I think the inspiration for this one mostly came from the idea of a young woman with scrolling blue tattoos across her face, back and one arm. Maybe they are part of how she casts her spells, I’m not quite sure,…

Noble White Unicorn

For my white piece of art in the Red, White and Blue series, I thought this little white unicorn sketch would fit nicely. The original pencil sketch is actually only just over three inches on paper, and was only a sketchy little doodle I did for fun, but I overall liked the way it turned…

Red Dragon & Wizard

Happy July 4th everyone! Well, I’ve sadly been neglecting my site for the last while, so I decided to post a set of three pictures to sort of catch up a little. All of them will be fantasy sketches I did in my free time, but to celebrate July 4th they will be in the…
