I did these and another one for The Hobbit Design Contest! You can check it out here! As well as my other piece here! The first three are of some weapon designs that I did for the Mirkwood Elves. The first image is of general sketches, the second one is where I took the parts of the designs that I liked and created a batch of cohesive weapons that fitted the look that I wanted. The last is a grouping of some of my favorites! I wanted to go with a more twisted and tribal look to them because of how the are from a dark forest full of mystery. I thought they should differ from the style of the other elves mainly because of the different mindset that they would have in an different environment.
And the last two images of course are just some different ideas for the lonely mountain! :D More coming soon!

The first two are some sketches and renderings of some monk characters as well as some other characters that would fit in the same environment as the monks! The last three are of some Goblin sketches and renderings! These were all done with my own brushes! It has been great! It takes a while to experiment and create brushes that specifically fit with what you want to do but its well worth it. It will speed up your process and help your artwork stand out from other peoples. A lot of people use the same brush sets and it all starts to look the same but when you create your own look. Its fun to look at peoples brushes and see how they did things but its always best to use your own!
here) of some of the armor thats at the DIA (there are a lot more if you go in person). The nice thing about taking pictures of the armor yourself is that you get reflections that are a little bit more realistic to what they would be outside in real life compared to clean shots of armor with white surroundings/reflections.
These animal sketches were done at the Detroit Zoo! I have always been interested in animals and love drawing creatures which seems to fit hand in hand. These sadly were from a bit a go when I went with my buddy Justin back when I had a zoo membership (Which I need to renew!!). Hopefully I will be going back soon! Its a lot of fun!
Anyways more coming soon!
