I don’t have enough mermaid goodies! So I came up with this design to add at least one more to the mix. This is a brand new design and a new vinyl decal now available in the shop.
I sculpted the original of this miniature dragon fossil in clay, this time with a round chunk of “rock” as the background so it could hang directly on a wall without the need to be framed. Each bone is three dimensional and quite realistic in appearance. The sculpt is about 7″ in diameter. Each finished piece is hand painted by me.
I only have these listed on Etsy when I’ve got one painted and ready to go. If I have any of them available at the moment, they will be at this link: Fossil Dragon Skeleton
So, let’s say you really like my lizard mask, but have no real interest in dressing as a lizardperson or a dragon. Here’s something else I thought of to do with it!
This is the artwork for my exclusive print for Phoenix Comicon 2016. We’ve had a brand new, exclusive piece of artwork available for this show each year since we first vended there in 2011.
A few months back, I decided it was time to get something I’ve wanted for quite a while – a vinyl cutter! I’ve now converted several of my designs to be done as vinyl cutouts. These are outdoor rated, so they’re great for semi-permanent application any number of places – most commonly things like the window of a car or the back of a laptop, but any smooth, flat surface will do.
View all of the vinyl decal designs I’ve made (they’re all available in a variety of colors, too!). Among the designs I’ve done so far are dragons, unicorns, fairies and werewolves, along with some fun video game symbols you might recognize from Mass Effect or Dragon Age. What can I say? I’m a geek through and through. On a related note, here’s what the back of my car looks like these days!
When you want to proudly proclaim your allegiance to those grandest of scaled, fire-breathing beasts, here’s a button design just for you. It features a spiky black dragon spreading brown, leathery wings across a sea of flame, and the bold words, “I AM a DRAGON” across the front.
I designed this new phoenix originally for doing a silk painting project. While that didn’t completely work out, I loved how the design turned out and decided to use it for other things. The round shape naturally made it an excellent candidate for adding to my collection of buttons!
I call this illustration “Centaur Shamaness”, showing a palomino centaur lady in the forest with her black raven familiar perched on her arm. The horse portion of her body is a lovely tan color, and her hair, mane, and tail are nearly pure white. She’s seated on the grassy floor of a beautiful forest, with green leaves and dangling vines all around.
It’s almost a joke at this point that whenever I try to draw a mermaid, she ends up being non-traditional in some way! From mers with dolphin tails or fish-like faces, to “gorilla whales”, or even the extreme example where a drawing I first envisioned to be a mermaid ended up being a rattlesnake naga living in the middle of a desert, they have never quite been the beautiful fishtailed beings most people associate with the word.
So, I figured it was about time to add an honest-to-goodness fish-tailed mermaid lady to my collection. I colored her in a striking blue and gold motif, in vivid colors as befits a fancy ocean mermaid. Her hair is also a lovely deep blue shade. Here, she’s swimming with a friend, a rusty red colored octopus. I’m a huge fan of cephalopods, and it’s kind of sad I didn’t have one included in any of my artwork up to now! Ah well, problem solved. 🙂
