For about half of the paintings I create, I begin by drawing a detailed pencil sketch.
My favorite subject to draw is beautiful women. And demons…let’s not forget demons.
During the painting process, often many of the subtle pencil textures are lost. Paint flows atop soft pencil strokes, hiding much of what once existed.
For this reason, I like to photograph my sketches before I begin painting atop them. The original sketches are almost separate pieces, and I cherish them as much as I do the finished product.
So here we go…
Every pencil sketch I’ve photographed in the last 12 months…
Dreaming of Vengeance
Throne of the Dead
Lost in the Machine
Beauty and the Blade
Fury and the Angel
Mother of Midnight
Ashes for Ande

Creepy gothic cathedrals.
Ancient dark towers.
Fantastical sky-piecing minarets.
Some of these are among my older (and therefore cruder) works.
Others are more recent.
Quality notwithstanding, painting dark towers is among my favorite things to do, second only to drawing attractive women.
