Okay remember I said I was gonna end the Supermassive Art Sale at the end of this month—which means prices on all the original A* art you can buy on this site will go from the current $10 back up to their regular prices (usually $50)—and that before the end I'd go and point out some faves of mine that you might want to snap up while they're still 80% off or whatever? Well the month is already more than half over so I guess I'd better get started pointing out the bargains!

is one I always liked—one of the earliest traditional media pages I did, and I kinda still can't figure out how I did it—the guard's shiny helmet and face in particular, not to mention Selenis' swingin' walk. : o Man, this is making me nostalgic for ink wash. : P Also this early on was leaving the margins open on the paper, so the actual painted area is bigger than later pages. It's also one of just a handful of original pages left from this whole episode!

I *just* took this one down from being reserved for taking to art shows around Seattle (if anyone orders it this month it'll probably take a few extra days because it's still at my dad's house in its show frame : p), so now you can buy it online cheap (for the next couple weeks, at least) instead of having to wait to catch it at a local show!

Gosh, I got really detailed in this take on Selenis' face, didn't I? And that's got to be one of the best noses I ever did. Sheesh my art skills must be getting worse now. I've come to draw Selenis' features differently since then, so you probably won't get another chance at her looking like this! It was also fun to have the portal window as a framing device.

Thanks! I actually came back and edited that in later, it just seemed like it needed a little something : )
