Illustration: Evin and Thargadd

Quite a while back my good friend Mordian7th, from his namesake blog Mordian the 7th, had asked if I would be able to illustrate a couple characters from said 7th Mordian Regiment of the Imperial Guard.

And yes, they are still and will ever still be the Imperial Guard to me.  Moving on.

I have just gotten my new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil recently, and decided that his request would be the first done using these two tools and the app Procreate...

Wanna see how it turned out?

Illustrations and 2-Dimensional Musings

Ever since I was 3 years old I've been drawing or painting, creating some sort of visual art.  Of course, you could say that of any child really, refrigerators are full of drawings by children all across the globe.  But how many of those children who are encouraged to imagine and explore with their creativity continue past age 10?  Maybe 13?  Sure we all see doodles in the margins of notebooks, but how many teenagers carry sketchbooks with them on a daily basis, or ask for new art supplies for their birthdays?

For 35 years now I've been drawing and painting.  For 35 years I've listened to my dad's voice in my head from when I was a child saying that I could do anything I wanted to when I grew up.

Well I wanted to be an artist.
