Random Favourites

I pick my favourites, not neccessarily based off talent or content but by impact, style, beauty, because it made me laugh or numerous other random reasons. Regardless of whether or not a peice reflects something I'm into or not, if it makes me doubletake, and want to see it again, then it deserves it.

MY BLOG: lostinfernal.wordpress.com/

Every year I have a table at the Calgary and Edmonton Expos where I do sell select portraits. This is the only place I sell. Nor do I take commissions, though I might break that rule if the request came from the celebrity portrayed or the company in ownership of the copyright.

I try to maintain a balance between wanting to share my love of these characters and respecting the original owner of the image, whether it is a company or the person who the likeness belongs to. Because of this, I keep my prices low, in exception of the original, and my print runs low.

Here's the thing, I love these characters. I love drawing them and challenging myself. I love the reactions to my art, because you guys get soooo excited. That being said, I want to be respectful. So as much as other artists tell me to raise my prices, I won't. Regardless of demand, the print runs do end relatively quickly. I'll also constantly post updates to the company/person on Twitter and Facebook. From saying I'm going to do it, straight through production, I want them to be able to say "hell no!" if they actually see the post and would rather I didn't.

I will NEVER make a killing off selling art based off someone else's concept. I earn enough to pay for product, and tables, and signage, and all that stuff and sometimes (if I'm lucky) a little bit more to justify the days of work I take off to be there.

If you are wondering, the thing I want to make a living off of is actually my writing. And, hopefully, I'll realize that dream soon enough. In the meantime, and probably beyond, I loves me some half-naked men.

All this being said, Matt Smith has told me I can keep abusing his image. ;) Other awesome celebrities who have been totally cool with it, and even encouraging include Dean Cain and J August Richards, two of the finest gentlemen I've had the privilege of meeting.

Updating my profile pics for 2016! Only took 20 tries to not look like a dork and Photoshop to remove evidence of the second nose I'm currently attempting to grow.

Character:The Iron BUll Series:Dragon Age

Tools Used: Mechanical Pencil, 4B, 6B, and 8B Pencils. Paintbrushes for blending.

 

A little background. I'm slightly obsessed with Dragon Age. First play through, I romanced Bull and giggled all the way through it like a schoolgirl. Then I finished the game...like the DLC end. The REAL end. Then I rage deleted my game, even from the Keep online. Any of you who played it and sacrificed the Chargers for the good of all Thedas know what I'm talking about. I refused to let that be my ending! NERD RAGE!!!

I'm playing through romancing Cullen this time, though I have another play through I'm bitterly going through to get the ending I want with Bull. 

Yes. Obsessed. 

Speaking of which, I'm not entirely sure how many reference pics I used for this, but I'm thinking that it's up around like 15.

Lieutenant Colonel Liam Brunner

Known As: Storm

The only thing that has held Storm back from becoming the Alley's youngest General is himself. Not willing to give up the battle-field, he sits as General Felix Highlander's second in command. The position allows him the opportunity to pick battles that are worthy of him.

Within the Alley, he's known for being a strict and unforgiving commander, but he is also one of the best they have. With a reputation that can silence a room when he enters, his mere presence can be a game changer. Even the vampire community fears him, regarding him with…read more at www.lostinfernal.com/Storm.htm…

Welcome To The Team

In the Alley, we are brothers and sisters with a common goal; we will keep the Innocents from suffering at the hands of creatures that 
would have them be nothing but victims. You, and those brave enough to stand up against these threats, are a credit to humanity.

Lost Infernal Banner by ShonnaWhite

Having brushed her tragic past behind a twisted sense of humour, Lieutenant Estellia Highlander lives to be the best. That dedication has driven her to some questionable action, but has also saved many lives. When a god-like vampire returns fifty years after nearly destroying the Ally, the military division orders Estellia to assassinate him. Their hopes to prevent another way lay with a powerful mutation she carries, one that makes her more like the target she hunts than the humans she fights for. The mission takes her deep into vampire society where he discoveres that something far more sinister than the Paragon Michael Bayne is emerging. In the end, if she and Michael cannot work together to defeat the rising darkness, mankind could be lost.

Estellia Highlander - Lieutenant Wolf

Triggered by exposure to the blood of a Paragon, the genetic anomaly that Wolf harbors allows her to manifest vampiric abilities. Though she is respected for her skills and is well liked, the condition is thought of harshly by most of the soldiers in the Alley.

Standing above her traumatic past, she refuses to allow anyone to ever get the best of her. Personal weakness is abhorrent, and she'll never again be put in the position…read more at www.lostinfernal.com/Estellia.…

Thanks so much! I was lucky enough to actually have the tattoo artist being someone who worked on the animation in Halo: Forward Onto Dawn. :)

Hello, 
Just wanted to drop in and say that I've seen you before at the Calgary Comic Expo before and bought a few prints from you :) They are lovely and are framed up in my place right now ^-^ 

I'm curious, will you be attending CCEE 2016? I would love to pick up a few more of your art pieces :)

Hey there, thanks for getting in touch! I'm thrilled to hear you have your prints up. :) YES, I sure will be at the 2016 Calgary Expo, but I'll be in a new spot. You can find me over at table F12. It's one of the end tables near the creator guests.

I wanted a second table, but they aren't going to be doing those anymore. Too much demand. But it's a corner table over at F12...so funny enough, not that far from you. :)
