Falling Sword - Diablo 3
For this piece of fan art I wanted to paint the new Crusader class from the new Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo 3. After playing the beta at Blizzcon, I wanted to show my version of the ability "Falling Sword" from the enemies perspective. I had a blast painting it and being able to share it with all of you :)
Heroes of the Storm.
I wanted to try some fan art from the new game Blizzard is cooking up. So I was really excited to get to paint multiple game characters in one painting. Enjoy!
Sha of Hellscream (World of Warcraft).
In this fan art painting I wanted to show my version of what it would look like after Garrosh has corrupted Vale of Eternal Blossoms. I had a ton of fun painting this as I see the Shrine of Two Moons everyday and thought it would be fun to paint the shrine corrupted by the Sha. Enjoy!
An Emerald Christmas (World of Warcraft).
In this festive fan art painting I wanted to show Ysera appearing from the Emerald Dream to Azeroth and showing her spirit for Christmas.
This WoW fan art painting is also very dear to me as this piece is also a tribute to my dog Charlie that passed away Nov 10th (day after Blizzcon, I know). He passed of old age and couldn't make to this year's Christmas so I decided to paint him in this painting to forever live with me in my passion of art and my favorite video game.
I love and miss Charlie and was really excited to share with you all this very special fan art painting. I hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas. Enjoy!
Charlie can be spotted in a cameo of my Diablo 3 speed painting at 1:56-1:58 minutes in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq4EOYZY-DE
Deathwing-Bot 2000 (World of Warcraft).
So I was tinkering with my Sky Golem in WoW and was thinking since there are a bunch of drake/ serpent mounts in the game, it would be awesome to have an Engineer made dragon mount. So I went with one of the awesome bosses in the game and turned it into a robotic Deathwing mount.
Was extremely fun painting this fan art piece and wishing it would be a real mount in game (fingers crossed, haha).
World of Warcraft/ Diablo 3 Community Spotight.
I wanted to share my community spotlight written by Blizzard on both the WoW and Diablo 3 website (if you haven't seen it already). It is an accomplishment I am very proud of and wanted to share it with everyone who visits my site. I also want to thank Blizzard for giving me this HUGE opportunity to share my work with the WoW/ Diablo 3 community. It is truly an honor!
So with out further ado here is my spotlight:

Although many of my art content on here is done digitally, I started painting (2007) with acrylic and aerosol on canvas. Many of the paintings that were in my solo art showing can be viewed here.
