ArtOrder - Oso de la Fez

A quick update, if you were wondering why there was no post on Monday, I was on a much needed mini vacation and was completely away from my computer for four whole days. Now I have a stack of emails to deal with and work to catch up on. I plan to add a post tomorrow to make up for missing Monday.

Now down to business... Oso de la Fez! There was a special challenge announced last Friday over at ArtOrder and I had a little down time over the last four days to whip something up:

You can read the specifics of the challenge here, but the overview was to design the bear familiar, Oso de la Fez, created by Shelly Mazzanoble for her D&D game which she has been writing about for Dragon magazine. Yes, he is a circus bear. I had thought this piece was due today but while I was away from the Internet the due date moved to Sunday... better to be done early rather then late. You maybe wondering if I was away from my computer, how ever did I make this?!? I used analog techniques! Copic marker, colored pencil and gouache helped me through this. Let me know if you would like to see more analog work!

For more samples of my work or to contact me regarding my availability head over to my website:


  1. Hey! You gonna send this to me? Or do you just expect I have tons of free time to go around and read artists blogs....uh, wait a second

    ...well, I really DON'T have tons of free time.

    Shelly saw it and squealed! My dream has been realized...


  2. I got a squeal reaction?! AWESOME! :)

    I guess this means you didn't get my email this morning with this attached to it? I will resend it.
