The Candle in the Wind
My latest iteration of King Arthur, on the eve of his fated battle with Mordred. Not sure why it's snowing, but hey 2016 has been a rough year, and even Arthur is feeling the stress.

In other news - sorry for neglecting this account in recent months. Grad school has been all-consuming and much of what I have been working on isn't really post-worthy yet. But I'm really happy with how Arthur turned out. For some reason, he and Robert Baratheon have become an artistic benchmark for me, and I am content to paint and repaint them for the rest of my life.
Rhaegar Targaryen
'Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly, Rhaegar fought honorably. And Rhaegar died.'

Rhaegar seemed a fitting subject given this season's dramatic finale. He also makes a good companion for my young Robert. Maybe I should redraw Ned and Ser Arthur Dayne to go with them.
Ned and Cat
Here's an older piece that I did about a year and a half ago, but never uploaded. I started drawing all the characters from Game of Thrones in order of appearance, even the small ones. I made it three chapters in and gave up. Most of them aren't very good, but I did like how Eddard and Catelyn Stark came out. There's a whole host of things that I would change at this point and I am much more comfortable with my knowledge of armor than my knowledge of fashion.

The North Remembers.
After the Trident
It's that time of year again. My annual rendition of Robert Baratheon (I'm up to seven). I had taken a break from drawing Game of Thrones characters, but the show's tremendous and horrifying battle sequence last Sunday was inspiring. I've moved away from the more ornate fluted design back to my original inspiration, which is one of my favorite suits of armor belonging to Henry VIII. Still haven't figured out his oversized novelty hammer, which is meant to be larger than life (as most things in works of fantasy are).

I should probably redraw Rhaegar to accompany him, but as soon as I consider that... my mind races with ambitions to draw Stannis and Renly, Roose Bolton and the Blackfish, along with all the other wonderfully described characters from A Song of Ice and Fire. Maybe someday. All I can hope is to continue improving slowly, but surely.
It's been years since I have written a 'journal entry' on Deviant Art...

The reason I am writing this is to cross promote my art Tumblr that I just started posting to. Tumblr as a service has a few flaws, but I like it - and habitually check it more than Deviant Art these days. is my art blog - where I hope to be posting regularly, both finishes, works in progress and some pieces that I have already posted here. is where I post a lot of my reference, art that I enjoy along with an assortment of other things I like to share such as movies, music and games.

I will continue to post art to my profile here, I just wanted to give Tumblr a shot.
