I was asked to do an illustrated portrait of my friend. My inspiration was my friends' personal work since she is a professional illustrator herself. This one is titled, "Allie."

This image was done as concept art for another friend of mine who did her senior project as a comic. The story was about this little girl who's life was so boring, she eventually went mad and created her own world in her head. This one is called, "Escape from Sanity."

It was fun to make since I had to put two separate paintings together in photoshop! I painted each of the paintings to try and get my desired effect but in the end it took both of them to make what I wanted.

This was an exercise to try my hand at semi-unknown media: ball point pen and digital coloring. There was absolutely no graphite used in this image. The line work is completely done by ball point pen. All coloring was done in Photoshop. The title for this one is "Phoenix."

I'd like to redo this on a fix a few saturation conflicts. The colors came out beautifully but they all seem a little too close together in hue.

This image only took me about 6 hours to create. It's technically the 3rd revision since the first two didn't give me the desired effect. 10x10 on watercolor paper; Medium is watercolor and gouache.
Thank you for the comments!

Thank you both very much! I'd like to make another painting like this some times since it's cut paper and pastel!

This image was done for my senior project. The idea was based around kids being so surrounded by technology now a days that they shut the rest of the real world out. This one is called, "Escape from Society: Technology." The link will take you to the main page of my personal website. There are a few more images there than what I have shown in this portfolio. Thanks for your interest!
