This is part of a series where I took traditionally fantasy creatures and envisioned them in a sci-fi setting. This creature is an Ent, or treefolk. I decided I’d leave the creature alone and let the background really carry the sci-fi theme. I really wanted to give the impression of an escaped test subject destroying the lab where it was created.

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 web comic 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.
Eventually, I shifted my goals from “comic artist” to “card artist”. Then began a number of projects related to card game illustration. Also, I shifted to a more realistic style.
