Dragon Forest
That dragon is the cutest thing ever. I want one!  XD I've been working on this thing for months. I want to do a tutorial on this about adding depth to your paintings, and possibly how to paint realistic skin. We'll see if I get around to it.

This is not a photo-manipulation. Prints available. Skin brush by Nathie. Lace texture by Lunartex.

A last minute entry to the Outcaset Odyssey contest!  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a steampunk monster!  XD

I did this over a year ago but never uploaded it. Figured it was time. 'Tis the season and all. This was a personal commission for someone. I mocked up the arm and train in googlesketchup, but did all the shading by hand.  The arm was a blast. It makes me want to do more mech themed art.

Hello, hello. Just dropping in to announce that I will be increasing my online presence. If you are interested in art tips, how-to blogs, photo shop shortcuts, or just want to see a sneak peek of my upcoming artwork, I encourage you to follow me on Facebook (ashleywaltersillustration) and Twitter (@AshWaltersArt). I'll be doing some print giveaways in the future.

Life has been great. I've been exploring many different creative outlets and have discovered more of myself in the process. Many of you might not know it, but I am a classically trained singer, and I've been getting into the writing scene (courtesy of the prodding of a dear client of mine). I'll be performing Brahms Requiem next month with the local symphony and entering a writing contest. The past few months have taught me that art can be found in many forms. You may find that in the future, I will be sharing tidbits and experiences that I have learned across all avenues of artistic expression.

Right now, I am working on a fun little project during my off time. Here's a sneak peek. I hope to do a blog entry soon on creating depth in portrait work. Specifically on how to blend shadows, different types of shadows, and how being confident in your lighting creates a more lifelike piece.

In the commercial realm, I've been working working working. I'm keeping a tight lid on things, but sufficeth to say, I've been loving branching out and putting the pretty elves and fairies to the side. Here's a hint of some of my recent work:

lithriel Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2014
I might have lost all my work on it. My computer went kaput about three weeks ago. I have a new computer and I've been rewriting the Price of Victory, but I'm honestly not sure what's in store after that.
