A Bird-Like Thing and a Horse-Like Thing

The bird-like thing is a revamp of a character I made up in elementary school. The horse-like thing is the each uisge from Scottish folklore. Both were done in Photoshop from start to finish.

More Digital Monster Stuff

New batch of digital paintings. I'm continuing to explore ways to get the computer to mimic different types of media and textures. 

The character in the second one from the bottom belongs to DeviantArt user Artist-Kat. Her artwork can be viewed here:

This month I'm entered in a T-shirt contest on The theme was "cute monsters" so I figured, hey!

(Even if you've already voted for an entry in this contest, guess what? You can still vote for me! Yay!).

Digital Art Roundup

I've been doing a lot of messing around with Photoshop lately. I love Photoshop as a program but I've never been crazy about doing anything more than sketching with it until recently, when I started really getting into trying out different brushes and techniques for creating new things. I've found that by downloading some good textured brushes and really playing around with the presets, it is possible to make drawing on a tablet feel a lot more intuitive and closer to drawing traditionally. One of the biggest breakthroughs for me was messing with the opacity jitter, which allows you to "layer up" your brushwork like you would with graphite.

Here's a few of the things I've churned out in the past couple weeks as I try to grow as a digital artist.

For those of you who draw with Photoshop and are on the lookout for more traditional-feeling brushes, I highly recommend the Nagel Series 33, a free-for-download brush pack available from These are the primary brushes I used for all of the artwork here and I'm loving them to death.
