About Me

I study animation and tell stories through my art, whether by writing, illustration, painting, or animating. I live in the country with horses and 2 German Shepherds named Raven and Sula. When I'm not drawing and animating at work, I do farm stuff at home!

Week 5: Snowy Owl

Due to the snow this week and dreams of owls lately, here's a snowy owl in a somewhat snow-like skyish background.  Not the best painting, but I'm experimenting with blotting the paint instead of smoothing it out.  

The website for this project is here

Week Four: Lady Cardinal

My painting for week 4 of my Innate Image challenge:  A female cardinal surrounded by Rowan branches.  One unfortunately hit our window earlier in the week, and I felt like paying tribute to her.

Week 3: Pony and Maddie

These cute things were sun-bathing on a hill and I thought the scene was THE thing to paint.

Week 2 for Innate Image

So this week was insanely warm and rainy for January...so I felt like painting a rainy-themed image with a rain spirit.

Here's the project site http://innateimage.tumblr.com/

My new project: Innate Image. Week 1

For my New Year resolution of 2013, I've decided to start painting each week...painting anything I want, whether it be just puddles of color or a lighthearted painting, or something dark, or perhaps even detailed landscapes or portraits...characters, etc.

I've started a group called Innate Image (imagination...but broken up) for artists who want to follow my lead.  Here is the main page http://innateimage.tumblr.com/

I've decided that for fun and for intrigue to use code names...unless the specific artist chooses not to.  I'm Red Wing...10 points to whoever knows why.

Jan. 05, 2013 is my fist painting.  It is a watercolor and salt derivative.  As you see, it is my beloved dog Sunny, who recently passed away.  I had a dream of her earlier in the week of her visiting me, so that is what I thought of to paint.

Concept Art: Portfolio

My main goal with my portfolio is to showcase:
  •  concept art
  •  character design
  •  storyboards, etc. 
Here's my most recent stuff.

This is a colored shot from a storyboard.
This is simply the background concept.

Two more backgrounds for the same animation.
