Tinkerbell Painted Portrait by benke33
Tinkerbell Painted Portrait
14"x11", acrylic on canvas
I got her wrapped up this afternoon, this one ended up being a real challenge. I wanted to stay as far away from the Disney-fied version as possible and really mined the original source material. All the different textures and flesh values made this an interesting piece.

Finally have something I can post!! This is a recent commercial piece for a skin care company. The piece was done traditionally with graphite and white pencil (14"x18") and coloured digitally.  I really love how it turned out. The original art is available as well.
Just wanted send a giant thank you to all my existing and new clients / collectors who have commissioned or purchased personal or professional work this season. The last 2 months has been incredibly busy but I've had the pleasure of working with some fantastic people on some great pieces. It definitely helps this time of year and it allows me to keep doing this - can't express enough thank-you's. If you're still looking for a unique personal gift feel free to drop me a line and I'll do my best to take care of you before the big man in red show up.

Got an extra couple of days with this piece this week. Really happy with the balance of detail and looseness of it as well as going back to the original source material and researching the character. Had a blast with the damask pattern in the waistcoat. The original is available and prints upon request.
Smaug Painted Portrait by benke33
Smaug Painted Portrait
36"x18", acrylic on canvas
Got the big boy wrapped up this morning. This is the largest and most complicated painting I've done this year (19 days - 140-170 hours). Felt like tossing it at some points but I'm really pleased with it and it's very rewarding to get these large pieces through what is at times a very frustrating process. The original is available. Drop me a line if interested and thanks for being patient through the piece:)
