Forest Sketch 2016 Black soft pastel on sketchbook paper Here’s another sketch based on an online stock photo. I like the fine details and the fog-like blending in the background.

A Iceberg Within A Fog Of Colors 2016 Mylar, calligraphy ink, acrylic gesso, pillow cotton, sumi ink, Styrofoam, Screen printing applicants Here's another of the Independent Series paintings I did for my Perpetual Painting final exam.  This time, I took a large mylar sheet, cotton, and torn up sytrofoam and covered it all in the aforementioned materials  It looks like an ravaged iceberg surrounded in water and fog, don't you think?  I like the abstract feeling of it all as well as how the colors blend well together.

Converted Diorama 2016 Oil paper on canvas paper What I mean from ‘converted' is that I painted this from my snowy tree diorama I made back in my BFA Senior Project class back in Spring 2016 at Towson University – the original before it got fixed up into its current form. The blending went well and I like the dreamy atmosphere it invoked.

A Transitional Winter 2016 oil paint on canvas For this Perpetual Painting assignment, I had to take a song and somehow converted it into a painting.  In this time, 'A Jagged Gorgeous Winter' by the Main Drag. I made a colored pencil sketch of this and then replicated the scribbling nature into the painting, and I’m pleased on how it turned out along with the colors I used went well together.

Painting II Still Life 2015 Oil paint on canvas One of the first paintings I did for Painting II back in the Spring 2015 semester for Towson University. I really like how the blending is done, along with the warm lighting.

Here's a picture of my Techno Angel OC Mackenzie Harris (Angelic Gold) throwing a crescent moon-shaped Frisbee, one of her main special attacks she uses in the shoot-em-up games she plays with the Moonlings.

Exactly what it says - Arizona Williams (Angelic Emerald) playing a simulation of the arcade game Defender (1980) with the LunarLadies (the ladybugs) acting as the aliens and the Pixicats acting as the colonists.  This is a scene from Season 2, marking Arizona's debut as Angelic Emerald.

Here's Serena Melody (Tsuki Melodi, Angelic Silver) as a Techno Mermaid.  This is a scene from her spin-off novel Techno Angel Serena, by the way.

Mackenzie also became a Techno Mermaid in the same spin-off novel (Techno Angel Serena).  Here, she's firing moondust at the incoming artificial shark off-screen - as part of playing a simulation of the 1987 NES game Jaws.

Abstract Galaxy 2017 Acrylic paint and Sumi Ink on Mixed Media Paper This is my attempt on making a galaxy picture with acrylic paint with the paper covered in sumi ink.  The glow in the dark paint didn't work well as I expected due to its transparency, but I like how the overall picture turned out.

Cloudy Cherry Blossom 2017 Acrylic and suncatcher paint on mixed media paper Here's a painting of a cherry blossom tree I recently did.  I like the way the clumps of cherry blossoms look cloudy along with the grass looking cool and neon-like.

Fairy Rainbow in the Dark 2017 Oil Pastel on Bristol Paper Here's a chromatic abstraction picture I did using colors associated with my Heart Fairy characters - first column is for Suzy, the second for Selena, the third for Camille, the fourth for Danielle, the fifth for Rosalina, and the last for Catherine.  This was shot using Super Vivid Mode to better display the colors, and I like how it turned out.
