I made this after visiting a forum the other day 

I dedicate this video to all straight males 

I love how even in this small sample of rhetoric comments you can see brodudes co-operating by providing completely different narratives with the same goal.

  • The women in League of Legends are totally not sexualized! At all!
  • Women are naturally sexualized so they should be depicted as sexy all the time!

Reminder: This is the same demographic that are currently rioting because they claim games journalism doesn’t have enough integrity.

u know what i would really like to see, is a photorealistic drawing as good as one of your portraits but of an original character. to me that's the test of real talent. just a thought.

Your thoughts are stupid.

hey guess what anon

you kind of need to use photos to make a truly photorealistic portrait.

note the “photo” part. it’s part of the word “photorealistic.” As in, that’s what photorealistic painters use as reference in their paintings. You could make an “original character,” but to get the photorealistic effect that Euclase gets, it would either need to be based off of an actual person, or cobbled together from various photo references, because that’s how it works if you want to achieve that result. 

and also guess what, it takes a TON of skill and talent to pull that off. It is super fricking hard and takes a lot of hard work. 

also guess what. no one cares what you personally would like to see, or what you personally think is a test of talent. No one is obligated to perform to your specifications.

In lieu of a real trip recap (which I am in the process of creating) I have summed up my trip in ice cream form. Because that’s the important part, amiright?
(And if you are ever in Vancouver make sure you stop at Bella Gelateria. I mean it. The owner went to gelato university. Gelato university. That’s a thing!)

I have been interviewing women who work in Fantasy Illustration about their lives, art and careers. It’s a goldmine of knowledge and advice both for working artists and also for aspiring illustrators and artists.

There are currently 17 different interviews, so get reading and enjoy!

You can find all of the interviews here: http://kirileonard.com/tag/women-in-fantasy-illustration/

More good stuff to read from Kiri Leonard, and of course the interviewees.

"Last Stand" 
Another piece for Imagined Realms, and the only one with any violent-ish subject matter. :B 
Check out my Imagined Realms project on Kickstarter if you haven’t yet :) 

I am still flabbergasted that it took Wizards so long to hire you for card art! I’m always in awe. I think the colors are spectacular! In the face of obvious and imminent danger, the subject carries on, valiantly, in the memory of the man she’s holding on to.
