The Secret Lives of Monsters

#ogres, #goblins, #orcs, oh my. They’re all thought to solely exist for the purpose of the hero to come through and butcher them all in the name of some higher good, but they’re more than fodder and dungeon masters should design these other than combat activities into their role-playing games. Whatevs, I figured it wouldContinue reading “The Secret Lives of Monsters”

Nature Finds a Way

She’ll survive us all. She’s the strongest woman we know, she’s nature. Climate change? She’s survived it. High CO2? Easy. Humans, not so much. But she just may have mercy on us when we’ve wiped ourselves off the face of the planet. Here? A post-human photoshoot. We took her trees, her resources, her valuables, butContinue reading “Nature Finds a Way”

What’s In the Book?!

I don’t have a title, so I’m channeling Brad Pitt in the movie ‘Seven’. So here we have a scene that wasn’t supposed to be. Originally, I was going to mix it with other artsy stuff, like filters, Chiaroscuro shading, consummate V’s *paragraph fades to Charlie Brown teacher-like droning*… … And then I thought itContinue reading “What’s In the Book?!”

She navigates the patriarchy with the ease of an apex predator, bending wills, rending hearts, a dancer inContinue reading “Eye of the Tigress”

The Decision

This started out as a Captain Kirk in the arms of an Orion woman thing-a-ma-jiggy, then I got bored, because I like the stronger women, so, similar to another I did, here’s a digital painting a warrior about to lead her people into battle. No new boundaries broken here, I just needed to keep theContinue reading “The Decision”

Stages

A triptych as my last digital artwork. I’ve run out of ideas and must find something else. The three paintings explore nothing, and maybe have some intrinsic meaning, but in my current state, I got nothing. I think the most fun part was exploring camera techniques, playing with blades, lens thickness and f/stop. Anywho, withoutContinue reading “Stages”

The Choice

I was lying on the battlefield, life slowly bleeding out. The sounds of battle faded to the moans of the dying with a chorus of vultures in the background. As the sun set on what was surely my last day in this world, and the cold damp of night settled in my bones, she cameContinue reading “The Choice”
