First blog post

Hi everyone!

I’m in the process of setting up here om Word Press but I wanted to give some basic information so that you know what I’m about.

I’m a freelance illustrator of Fantasy Art. I work in traditional media and lately have been building my digital skills. I’m currently using Manga Studio and a Wacom tablet. Both are great to work with.

My plan is to share my work and style here with you. As I get things rolling, I will post more of my work. I will also share my steps that I took to arrive at the final images and my techniques. I will also drop in some videos here and there.

I will also be setting up to sell prints, originals and fantasy portraits by commission.

If you like what you see, please let me know. I will also be setting up an email mailing list as I get thins going.

Thank you for your interest and support.

Fantastic Imaginations,

Richard Thaxton, XT Illos
