The Endless

"Dream" and "Delirium". Two of the "Endless". Sorry for the long delay in posting. This is an unfinished WIP as I am still learning my way around digital painting.

Cast fom the heavens into the abyss, busted up from both battles and the fall, he commands loyal legions as the prince of lies......I went with a scarred and charred version, no pretty boys in hell. Alchemy Alpha 7.0 with some Adobe Photoshop work on top.

Round Seven: The Dioskouroi

The Dioskouroi, also known as Castor and Pollux, twin sons born to Leda , who was visited by both her husband and Zeus in the same night (as a result, Pollux was born Immortal while his twin Castor was human.) They are also the brothers of Helen of Troy, and half-brothers of Hercules. When Castor was killed, Zeus allowed Pollux to share his godhood with his brother so that they could remain together for all eternity; they exist in the stars as the Gemini Constellation

The Cancerous Deity of Nicotine

He is real, I swear!
Alright… I made him up. I just quit smoking, it’s day two and it sucks… So I decided to make a deity that I can blame and curse and throw darts at.

Red and black ballpoint pens, red colored pencil, yellow highlighter, and coffee washes.

Round Seven: Deities, Sedna

Sedna is an Inuit goddess of the ocean. There are many different legends surrounding her. In one, her father tries to marry her off but she doesn't like any of the suitors. In protest, she marries a dog instead. Her father became so enraged that he tried to throw her into the ocean, but she clung to the sides of his canoe. He then chopped her fingers off one by one, and these fingers became the many animals of the Arctic. She fell to the bottom of the ocean and resides there still. The Inuit shamans have to travel to the bottom of the ocean to comfort her or she won't release any animals for their tribes to hunt. Its a real interesting dichotomy because she can be a goddess of life and death.

This was done in ink and acrylic.

Round Seven - Loki the Trickster

I adore trickster figures in all mythologies. Norse god Loki is up to no good with his son Fenrir and another wolf...either Skoll or Hati. I didn't go for full-on shading with this sketch, but rather just a hint. I hope I have time to sketch a few more... :)

Surprise Round 1: Deadpool

How could I not post one in honor of my old classmate? Congrats, Shawn!

Round Seven: Deities - Tezcatlipoca

Tezcatlipoca, Smoking Mirror in Nahuatl, rival of Quetzalcoatl in the Aztec religion and god of night and war was definitely a "Chariot of the Gods" candidate.

SURPRISE ROUND 1!: Deadpool, the Merc with a mouth

Initial sketch done with Alchemy Alpha 7.0

Finished sketch with Adobe Photoshop 7.0

SURPRISE! My latest madness was inspired not by the Wolverine movie but my pal Shawn Crystal's recent Deadpool Annual and upcoming two issue story arc in the regular book! Visit him over at inkpulp today! (don't fret, I'll be introducing round seven soon, now get to sketchin'!)


If Sly Stallone had a +2 flaming sword.
(sigh) . . . I played waaayyyy too much Dungeons and Dragons as a kid.

Hey look! It's a Python Medievalist!

Round Six; Barbarians!

This character's been in the back of my head for a few years now. Is there any weapon that says "Barbarian" more than a big, freakin' hammer?

Round Six - Bare Barbarian

In my mind, the really interesting "barbarians" were the ones that went to battle fearlessly naked (or nearly so) to psych their enemies. The Celts, Gauls, Gymnitai, or various African and N/S American tribes. ....Or any excuse to draw an interesting body shape. ;)

I also played a bit with clothing options (a gal's gotta have a wardrobe), so there's "Spring fashion" and "Fall fashion".

Round Six

The Seductress and The God

I think this speaks for itself, all Corel Painter Essential 2.0

Round Six - Epic Barbarian Action

I always imagine my female warriors to be a little less buxom and more agile. But she still rocks the skirt in the obviously freezing cold. We're working off of Warcraft physics here.

Round Five - Creature From the Black Lagoon.

So here's the first one for me. Rockin' some super sweet Creature From The Black Lagoon... in a rather awkward moment.
