More variations on “Dragon City”–the runners-up, if you would. I learned a lot doing these thumbnails (“corner shots feel bigger”).
“Dragon City” practice compositions (2019 background sketchbook)Art
“Dragon City.” I’d like to develop one of these into a full-blown painting. Which one is your favorite, 1, 2, 3, or 4?
I drew this after reading some of Betsy Luntao’s tutorials over on DA. Her book How to Draw Backgrounds with Character (by Betsy Luntao, available free on Gumroad: https://gumroad.com/l/tTiRg ) is one of the most helpful background drawing books I’ve ever seen. These were made after following her advice where you start off with a sentence describing what’s going on with the environment you want to draw (in my case, “a dragon flies over some ancient ruins” or something like that. This was from 2019, give me a break!).

New fiction releases + status update!Art, News from Pixelvania Publishing, Site Updates, Writing
Hi everyone! I aten’t dead, I just switched to Linux and have been busy writing and arting away! (If not always scanning, d’oh!)
I’m rethinking the kinds of things I want to feature on PIXELVANIA STUDIOS. But in the meantime, I wanted to let show you the covers totwo new stories I released: THE WITCHING LICENSE and DEBUTS AND DRAGONS.
Mavis Burnsides is on her deathbed when her best friend brings her a Witching License. Now she’s got magical powers—and one last night to make up for a lifetime of regrets.
By turns sassy and touching, The Witching License is a gentle tale of regret, romance, and righting wrongs.

Though she’s not much to look at, dragon Sellafield Terrormouth never worried about snagging a mate for herself. But now that her little sister is about to debut in dragon society, Sella’s got one night to go from drab to fab. If she fails, she’ll lose her entire dowry—and quite possibly doom herself to eternal spinsterhood!
Can this plain dragon get herself a date, or is her future about to go up in flames?
Contemporary fantasy fans won’t want to miss this lighthearted (and scaly) look at love, friendship, and inner beauty.

Both books are available in LARGE PRINT format, which is a thing I guess I’m doing now! They make great stocking stuffers, too! *eyebrow waggle*
Finally, y’all need to watch KLAUS if you haven’t already. Here’s why.
