Paula - Heavygun Ver.

"Paula - Heavygun Ver."

A rather fun one that came up, as a former-co-worker had appeared on one of those "zombie apocalypse" things on facebook where it randomizes your friends list to assign their jobs... Paula is a -at best- 5'1" Japanese girl (and adorable, to boot), so when it assigned her as "heavy gunner", we both knew this had to be done. I got to use my almost-otherwise-useless knowledge of heavy artillery, and did not waste a of effort making sure this looked as ridiculous as possible.
Note: She wanted the Chinese conical hat, despite it being culturally inaccurate... *shrug*

Always and Forever

"Always and Forever"

One of my only attempts at photo-realism, this was done for the wedding of my best friends, Kelli and Darryl McGee. This was the second ever piece I did using Photoshop for the colors, and despite some issues (mostly with my tablet), I feel turned out a little better than I expected. I'm not really a fan of photo-realistic art, but I feel they deserved it.

Gerbera X Tiger

"Gerbera X Tiger"
(Gundam Astray Red Frame Kai from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray VS.)

Using my Master Grade kit as a reference, I did this piece with the intention on truly showcasing the samurai-esque aspect of the Astray RF - My favorite Gundam, period. This was also my first piece done solely digitally, using no lineart or sketchings. It's not a method I'm fond of, however, as this one took me well over a month to finish...
The "Lowe" and kai symbols were actually scanned from the model kit's decal sheet, with minimal clean up, and placed in the background.
