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).
Mists (World of Warcraft).
Lately I've been playing a Pandaren Mistweaver in WoW for my main healer and it inspired me to paint another Pandaren painting. While playing I came up with tons of ideas for the scenery and setting, mood, lighting and composition for this painting. I really like the mood in this painting and enjoyed every moment creating it. Enjoy!
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:

Siege of Hellscream (World of Warcraft).
In this painting I wanted to paint something that is related to the new 5.4 patch that is coming out for WoW. I read the lore behind Grom Hellscream and got really into that whole story of him and the Warsong clan drinking the blood of Mannoroth. So this painting is my version of the chaos the clan brought to it's enemies while under the influence of Mannoroth. Enjoy!
Traditional painting - acrylic on canvas (30" x 48").
Netherstorm (World of Warcraft).
The area just outside of Blade's Edge really caught my eye when the art style went from a dry earthy look into a magical arcane looking storm with electricity everywhere. So I had an image I wanted to paint to capture my version of the Tempest Keep area. All I can say is my idea when definitely filled with static energy, haha. Enjoy!
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.
