Acrylic and Prismacolor pencils on hot press illustration board. This was done as a private commission for a friend. He wanted a trifecta of good old-fashioned monster-ey monsters against a plain white background. It was the first time in years that I did something with actual paint. For me, working with traditional media yields much more satisfying results, though when it comes to speed and convenience, digital painting can't be beat.

The Sin of Wrath, part of my ongoing series of sculptures based on the Seven Deadly Sins. The last image is the original pencil sketch, from about 5 years ago. Based on my reading, Wrath was sometimes symbolized in medieval imagery as a beast of prey like a wolf or a leopard, with an arrow piercing its heart. So my interpretation is made of flames and has the legs and tail of a wolf, and an arrow through its heart.
