SIL NUEDA (Wood Elf)

This here, is the depiction of a male Wood Elf for a dungeons & dragons world, where they are known as Sil Nueda. And, to quote:

"The Wood Elves, as other non-elven races came to call them, are the fair folk of the forests, referring to themselves as Sil Nueda (translates to Night's Children in Asil, the elven tongue). They have a very long life span, closing in to seven centuries, and are known for their traditions, honor, striking beauty, and legendary patience. That is, until someone depletes it."

For this piece, I wanted to let my love for Justin Sweet and fantasy Warhammer book art get in the way and influence me as much as possible, combined with my own track of style. Darker mood, soft and earthly color palette, and a controlled mess of brush strokes produced this result.


Personal work I did for a dungeons & dragons, fantasy world. This is the coast line of a realm, hugely influenced by the Caribbean, films, games, and such.

Abstract brushes where intentionally used, as a means to move away from detailing, and making my strokes more loose and form-oriented.


These are some of the images I did for a dark, medieval fantasy project, that went into ice. It may get canceled or it may revive, with some major changes.

Either way, here is some work I did for its original form; some environments, some characters, some enemies.


In-between work, I tend to turn back into studies. These studies sometimes, turn into (well, let's face it) copies of life studies. The following is a collection of such images, referenced from models off the internet, or the picture of a friend.

These images always relax me and act as a slap back into a proper way of thinking (as far as composition and values go), when I get knee-deep into my comicbook background.

Some of my favorites, are these displayed below.
