Portrait of Iolaia the Mad

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is Iolaia the Mad, the empress of Homilidurin. Her reign marks the end of a great dynasty. Homilidurin is a member of the Brotherhood of Great Nations, an alliance of vast and powerful empires now crumbling under the stresses of corruption, stagnation, civil strife, and natural disaster. The assassination of Queen Iolaia will be the first in a series of events that will change the world of the Brotherhood forever. This picture was drawn with ballpoint pen (a medium long underappreciated by professional artists) and tinted in Photoshop.

Millie -- Part 5

This is the fifth and final chapter of the Millie story.

Millie -- Part 1

This is the story of Millie, an automaton with a mind of her own. The story is set in the late 19th century, and my idea was to capture the flavor of the period as faithfully as possible. Technology and science were developing rapidly at the time, and the advances of technology took on a mysterious, almost magical aura. The idea of a living machine was, as it is today, alluring, mysterious and a bit frightening.
