Fantasy Art

Friday, August 5, 2016


You may have realized by now that these posts are not in chronological order.  That's due in part to the fact that my image files are not arranged in any kind of chronological order.   Also my life didn't exactly happen in chronological order due to going back and forth between dimensions via the basement door.  I was in fact born in my late forties, but that's another story.

This is one of my oldest life drawings.  I know it's old because I remember thinking how fat this guy was.  Now I look at it and think "Man I wish I was that skinny."

It's also one of the first drawings that I transformed into a fantasy art piece so it stood as a sort of proof of concept to me.
Here's this not very interesting sketch of a not very good looking guy that now looks like it could turn into something pretty cool.  It would take tracing over it a couple times before I'll be happy with what little shows of his anatomy plus the design of his weapons and armor and the critter he's riding.  But still there's the beginnings of a story here, a sense of an adventure about to unfold.  I like that and I'm going to keep it and re-work it even if it's not a great drawing yet.
