Castle WIP

A little work in progress, inspired by landscape artist Albert Bierstadt. And also, since I've been back in Washington, I've noticed the beauty of sunsets on cloudy days. Just before sunset the sun peaks through the clouds, just above the horizon for a few minutes, creating an amazing view of the landscape and clouds being lit up by the sun. It almost makes it worth living your days under the gloom of clouds 24/7.... almost.

Land Bat

Another piece for the portfolio, using Photoshop and alias sketchbook pro to get this to it's final stage.

Here is my initial description:
Land Bats. Millions of years of evolution have resulted in a land-based bat. It's wings have shrunk and transformed into giant daggers, made of keratin. It is now over 10 feet tall and has no natural predators. It dices it's prey into small pieces so it can manage to fit them in its tiny mouth.
