Sepia Raven pencil drawing by shmeeden
Sepia Raven pencil drawing
The other day, I was starting to burn out a bit on a large painting I've been working on, so I sat down to draw something to take a little breather from it, and this guy was the result. It felt sooo good to just play around with pencil again! I added a bit of digital colour in Photoshop, and some texture from DA user dierat here:…

I have two sizes of signed prints of this piece available in my Etsy shop:
Sea Gorgon leather mask by shmeeden
Sea Gorgon leather mask
Wear this crown of tentacles to transform into an aquatic Medusa, a sea witch, or a Lovecraftian terror of the deep. Or whatever else you can dream up!

This mask, like all of my pieces, is entirely handmade without the use of any forms or moulds. It is shaped freehand from a single piece of leather, and is hand-painted inside and out, in a black base, highlighted with iridescent turquoise/green metallic paint with a subtle shimmery effect. This particular mask is one of a kind and will never be exactly repeated, as the shapes of the tentacles are random and improvised each time I create it.

Check it out here on Etsy:…
Swirling Koi V, revisited by shmeeden
Swirling Koi V, revisited
I painted this a few years ago, but as I was working to a very tight deadline at the time, for a show, I never felt like it was quiiiiiite finished.  I recently broke out the paints again and tightened this one up, finishing it the way I always meant to!

The specs:
Acrylic on canvas
24" x 20"

This piece is currently available in my Etsy shop -- both the original and a signed and matted print version.  Check it out here:
The Christmas shipping deadline is fast approaching! To get everyone ordering in time, I've decided to give some incentive, and will have all matted prints marked down 20% between now and this Friday, December 5th.  Order now to save some $$ and have a sweet, ready-to-frame, signed piece of artwork to give as a pretty rad gift.

No coupon code is necessary: all discounts have already been applied.  Happy shopping!  :D…

(A note on shipping deadlines: shipments to Canada and the U.S. should still make it in time, as the send-by deadline for this year has not yet passed.  Packages to Europe and other locations still have a good chance of making it, but as the suggested deadline has passed I can't absolutely guarantee they'll be there by Christmas.)

Thank you for your interest in my work! :)

You have the most amazing gallery, with such a variety of types of art. It's all really gorgeous and really well done, but I particularly like your lovely owl paintings with all those soft, muted palettes.
