My studio floor is covered in beautiful posters printed by www.bestofmainecorp.com! Be sure to come see me at DragonCon this year if you want to snag one. ;)

Imagined Realms: Book 1
I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first issue of Imagined Realms, an annual art publication featuring positive and diverse representations of women in fantasy and science fiction. Each book will feature 10 exclusive and new illustrations created by me specifically for the book.  

Available for purchase are the printed books, 6”x8” and 11”x14” print packs that have all 10 illustrations, limited edition fine art giclees, and a downloadable process video showing my digital painting method. 
Please check it out and spread the word! 

Imagined Realms just passed $12,000! Only $3k more to go! :D

I’ll be pitching into this one when I can. Beautiful stuff, Julie!

WiP Thursday! (Since I missed posting yesterday) Here are my possible color schemes for Ms. January!  I’m pretty sold on number 8. Which one do you all like?  I’m hoping to try for something that channels the lovely deep color of the Garnet birthstone.  How I am jealous of those of you with this birthstone!

As ever, you can see a more detailed write-up on my creative process for this piece and others at my private WiP art journal which is only accessible to my patrons over on Patreon.

Check out the Ladies of the Months series tag to see more of this series here at my tumblr!

We found the perfect frame for Lady December today. Can’t wait to show her off at DragonCon!  You can see a clearer shot of her here.

WiP Wednesdays! The Lady of January line art is just about finished. Now to flesh out the foreground flowers!
Remember, if you sponsor me on Patreon for as little as $1, you can get access to my private art journal where I’m writing intensive sketch dairies documenting my creative process for this series and others!  Plus other exclusive rewards.

Tutorial Tuesdays! I’ve discovered a new tool thanks to my monthly ImagineFX magazine readings. They reviewed a program for Mac and PC called RefBoard which allows you to gather your references on a single board.You can resize each image and the program’s window always float on top of everything else. Simple, elegant, and the window floating puts it above PureRef, for me. Hope you all find it useful too!
