Had an opportunity to shoot with a professional model the other day, Rachel Dashae. She was fantastic to work with! 
Although the photos were intended as just reference for some paintings, 
She did such an amazing job that I can't help but to post some.
And she also brought something I did not expect, not that I knew what to expect ;)

As she posed and changed expressions, looks, angles, what-have-you, there are shots I would never have dreamed up if I were only sketching...

I can hardly wait to get to these paintings! But I need to buy more canvases! ;)

I’m looking forward to get going on these, I’m currently doing the research and sketches for the details (I’ve gotten the ideas locked down... I think ;) )

Please spread the word, and I hope you you decide to back the project!!

Many thanks again to Lauren Panepinto for the request!
Michael Publishing, LLC will debut "The Fantasy Illustration Library Volume One: Lands and Legends" book and related limited art prints at C2E2 at McCormick Place in Chicago: April 25-27th.  We will be in the Small Press area at 

Booth # 137.

One great thing about actual paintings, you have store them someplace. One great thing is you have to something to sell!
So, in the spirit of clearing up some wall (and drawer, and desk, and...) space, I'm putting a few of the original paintings up for sale,
including the two recent Lands & legends paintings.

If you're interested, send me a note!

Thanks!

As a general rule of thumb; if you did not create it from scratch, it's not yours.
If you think running filters, or using only parts of someone else's work makes it yours. It doesn't.
Copyright law is pretty clear on this.
