Hi everyone!

This time I’ve realized something a little different and with a little more narrative than what I usually do. I put this painting into the Characters section, even though this is clearly an illustration and not a character design.

Let me know what you think about it and leave a comment if you like!

Some new paintings

Hi everyone! Hope you’re all well. Personally, I got the flu so I could stay way better but I won’t complain! During winter vacations I’ve neglected the site mainly because where I usually go there’s no internet connection and so I have to rely heavily on my phone, which is why I couldn’t upload new paintings for a while.

But now I’m back! And I’ve brought a whole lot of new works with me. This one won’t be the usual post centered on one painting only. Instead I will batch all of them in one post.

I’m personally very happy with the look of some of them and I’d really love to hear a word from you! Which one do you prefer? I’ve chosen Majestic Universe to represent the post because it has received very good praising on social media, but I hope you’ll like the others as well.

Till next time!

My new painting. Again, I’ve been experimenting with the mixer brush presets made by Eldar Zakirov. The more I use them the more I like the amazing traditional oil painting effect they give! Give it a try if you are into digital painting, you won’t be disappointed.

It’s been a while since I last made a landscape and it was high time I did it. I love to depict lone travellers in huge sceneries, like this one. In this world some ancient civilization managed to harness the power of a whole planet connecting it to a giant monolith. I love the surreal effect it gives. Hope you like it too.

It seems I’ve been painting a lot of characters, lately. When I paint this kind of hybrid female characters I love to mix different features such as horns, scales, claws and feathers with human traits, combining sheer, natural power with the delicate beauty of female bodies.

This time I made a Tiefling, or a half-demon if you’re not into roleplaying games, a being born from the unholy union of a demon and a human. They are not necessary evil in nature, but their demonic traits usually get them to be fiercely discriminated. As a result they don’t trust anybody and learn very quickly to rely exclusively on themselves.

As usual I tried to stay as painterly as possible, to achieve a more organic result.

Let me know what do you think! And if you have a favourite character you would like me to paint you can suggest it in the comments below! 

Scorpio Duelist

This is my new work, Scorpio Duelist. This was one of the main characters of a novel I wrote when I was a high school student. It was meant to be male, to be honest, but I decided to change it and I must say I like this female version. I tried many times to draw or paint this particular character over the years, but I was never satisfied of the result. Now I finally made a version I like and I can rest easy. For now, at least!

Well, if you want to let me know what do you think of it, feel free to drop a couple lines in the comments below. Have a great day wherever you are!
