I was so fortunate to be commissioned by TLDragon for this wonderful piece of Amaterasu from Okami! We went through a bunch of ideas, settling tentatively on this super red saturated sunset piece. I'm really glad we did, I'm so pleased with the final result!

    Simply amazing. I love how well it's shaded and how the colors just burn across the screen!

    Oh goooosh! This is so powerful and inspiring! I've always loved how you make clouds, they have such volume without looking solid. I need to catch you in the making of them sometime

    These colors are fantastic. It's the stuff dreams are made of, or waking up at dawn on a commercial flight.

    You're able to capture light so well - I can almost feel the warmth of that low(ering) sun. All the light is in just the right place.
