It's LepreCon this weekend! Hence why the store is temporarily closed and we've been busy prepping. Mind you, LepreCon is not huge - it is a fun and charming local celebration of fantasy and sci-fi culture. This year, it takes place at the Phoenix Marriott hotel in Mesa, AZ. Come and say hello, if you've a mind to!
With Phoenix Comicon 2013 now only 2 weeks away, I've been working like a madwoman to get this costume ready. We've been getting our inventory of items all ready, and Robbie has started making some chainmail jewelry that we'll have available as well. That will appear in the store next week, depending on what all sells at LepreCon.
See you all soon!

That seems weird to say. Usually I post in the evening, but I was too excited to wait this time. First off, GamesRadar featured several of what they call Mass Effect fan art: The best images we've seen, and I'm honored that they chose to feature my digital painting of Tali!
It also pleases me greatly that they requested permission ahead of time, and made sure to include a credit. In a world where the sharing of digital content is just so easy, people often forget such simple courtesies. A big kudos to GamesRadar for doing things the right way.
Now that I've REALLY got Mass Effect on the brain (not that I didn't before, but hey!), I figured this would be a good time to show a very sneaky sneak peek at the costume project I've been working on. I'm extremely excited, as it's turning out almost exactly as I envisioned. It's been so long since I got to immerse myself in a costuming project like this, and I can't wait to show full pics and share how I did it.
I've been taking photos all along the way, from sculpting, molding, casting, and painting the mask, making the eyes, making the jaws move, building the armor, wiring the lights... the works. Expect the costuming section of this site to grow rapidly during the month of June.
For those who recognize the character, no, the armor isn't its final color yet. The painting part comes soon.
Seeing as it's one of those kinds of days, I'm off to blast the Mass Effect soundtracks in the workroom and make some more armor!

I had an inkling to draw a darker, fiercer dragon, and the last of the four new prints is the result of said inkling. (Does that mean I had an inkling to ink it too? Ah, never mind.)
I love how pieces like this become little storylets in my mind. The dragon FlintThorn, an arrogant, would-be usurper, flees for his life even as he plots to return one day to assume command of his fellows...
Enjoy the picture. :)

Greetings once again,
Here is the third in my new series of prints, a centaur warrior - but storm warriors such as he don't fight with swords or bows. They have mastered certain magics that allow them to control the elements, summoning fierce storms with which to attack their foes.
Like the dragon from yesterday, this is actually a slightly older piece that I never quite gave its full due. There was a severe lack of centaurs in my reportoire, so here is a step toward correcting that.
I've got one more new piece to put up tomorrow, the finished version of that sketch currently in the Work in Progress section. He turned out pretty wicked. Drop by tomorrow to take a look!

If you've been watching for a while, you might've seen this new dragon once before. I call him "Old Smokey", and he's now available as a print.
Originally, he was "Old Smokey" because I'd sketched him with plumes of smoke rising from his nostrils. However, that didn't work out well for the final colored image... but the name still stuck! So, I wrote up a little story to go along with this big lovely beastie. You can read it on the page by clicking him, below.
There are two more new pieces of art we're releasing as prints. I'll put up one tomorrow, and one on Wednesday. Check back soon for more!
