Purple Dragon is Digitally painted and printed on 11 x 17, 100lb card stock
Ethereal and surreal the purple dragon is the guardian of unearthly crystals. I don’t draw a lot of gem/crystal stuff so this one was a bit of a challenge. In particular though, I’m please at how the transparency on the horns came out. This was also a foray into working with a largely monochromatic color scheme.
I’ve always loved artwork. Spending long hours on the internet just admiring other people’s art. And my margins in class would always be full of doodles.
I got heavily into Japanese animation. It was then I determined that the end all be all of artwork was to draw for a comic.
I wrote and illustrated my own webcomic for two years after high school. Around the end of the comic I had started getting really into the gaming scene, Magic: the Gathering, in particular. The artwork was very enchanting and breathtaking.
I shifted my goals from “comic artist” to “card artist” and began a number of projects related to card game illustration. Also, I shifted to a more realistic style.
