I found these on the WoW TCG site today. The first is a playmat for the Scourge War expansion, and the second is a deck box with my Dwarf Priest on it.

Focal Press was also kind enough to upload some of my video tutorials on the Digital Art Masters micro site. You can check it out here.

If you haven't seen the epic Nibru thread that has taken by storm, you should go check it out. Many of the "heavy hitters" have contributed to the craziness, including Andrew Jones, Coro, Marko, Dos Santos, Wes Burt, Whit Brachna, Rich Doble...the list goes on and on. The criteria for the character was what intrigued me:

- he is old, has long hair, has only his left eye
- has stitches for eyebrows and his mouth is stitched shut
- has a halo over his head
- carries some type of spear
- has a necklace with the letter "m" on it

I figured this would be a great opportunity for me to create another video tutorial, so I gave it a shot. The version of the demo that I have now is a short, 10 minute video documenting the entire process. The next version I plan on doing will take you through the entire process in real-time and give you a much greater in-depth look at how I go about creating a character. You can find the short version on my youtube here.

This was our last day in DC with Sylvia. First we went to the Natural History Museum and then we ran to the National Portrait Gallery before it closed. Unfortunately we only had about 30-45 minutes to look at the whole museum.

Detail of Charles Dana Gibson

Detail of Norman Rockwell

This was an actual life cast of Lincoln before his death.

Some details of Anders Zorn. As you can tell, this was one of my favorite paintings.
