Jedediah Dougherty

I have been painting for about 15 years, with an emphasis on figurative work. I graduated from the College of Creative Studies at UCSB with a Bachelor’s in Fine Art.My art is primarily concerned with strong sensual women of colossal solidity and Herculean musculature, leavened with an undercurrent of humor and whimsy. My imagery is inspired by a number of sources, from the physical exaggerations of ancient goddess images, to the burlesque allegories of classical figurative painting, to the comic-book physiques of female bodybuilders.Also included here are a number of sketches colored with Photoshop. There are some roleplaying illustrations, as well as some more amazons and fantasy pieces.I have shown artwork in a few galleries, and have artworks sprinkled around on various websites as well. Currently I am partially employed drawing backgrounds for comicbooks.
