August 2013 First Friday – Richard Pace

  I really wanted to do an image more evocative of classic fantasy and less reliant of a main central figure as well as show a little love to Moebius and Franklin Booth -- two influences that I rarely get to lean on for most of my work.  At one point the composition was landscape format

Just in under the deadline! We've got something special here. This is the first collaborative piece for the Outland Collective and I have had the distinct pleasure of collaborating with Big Mike Walton on this. Not only that, but this also doubles as a promotional piece for a graphic no

My jumping off point was Botticelli's The Birth of Venus.  Clearly, I covered a lot of subsequent distance. I’ve dubbed the piece, Birth of the New Queen.  I started out making a number of doodles of eldritch abominations and Cthulhu sketches before landing on the final concept.  It’s

For my First Friday image I knew I wanted to do a Dragon piece. It had been a while and I've been working on a story for a while now that has some of the winged creatures, but that I haven't had the opportunity to share. As is often the case, I tend to start pieces listening to music, and in this ca

Hello once again to all, As you all might imagine, doing the First Friday piece of January 2013 was quite daunting. Not only am I under the scrutiny of extremely talented colleagues, but I also have a certain debt to all the people who are kind enough to like my work to deliver something akin to

December 2012 First Friday – Jeremy D. Mohler

This piece began life as a book cover for a client. The client was pretty open to suggestions and pretty much let me run with whatever (excepting a few details regarding the character). And as this has never been premiered elsewhere, I thought it would be a good piece to show. What I fo

Its been 5 years since I painted with oil and I will be the first to admit this image has a bunch of problems. Still, it was fun to work with real paint again. OG="17 by 35" Avalon is a town on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California. My wife and I had our honeymoon there and a
