Just thought I'd let you all know that this is now under http://www.lizannlong.com so if you have this bookmarked the old url will redirect you to here, but it's always a good idea to update! I'll be working on a new header too, but for now you'll have just text up there for a bit.
Also my site may be changing a lot, since I'm changing things around. Pardon the slight mess if it is. It'll be resolved soon :)

I traveled to Eureka Springs, Arkansas with my mom yesterday, I had never been there before but I took my camera to take some photos since I had heard it was interesting. These are a few of them here but if you'd like to see more head over to my flickr page here. I am by no means a photographer so they are mostly me playing. I hope you enjoy them!
Oh and if you're interested the camera I used was my Powershot G9, and I mostly used the manual setting.

First off I'd like to say I do not own these characters at all, they are copyrighted to Bioshock and 2K Studios. I've just been playing the game lately and decided why not paint these two as a little exercise. Plus it's nice to practice a little bit of darker imagery than what's been shown on here yet. I had fun doing it, I haven't done "fanart" in a long, long time. It basically turned into a color and digital painting exercise.

Here are some portfolio examples of some more work I've done over the years, all of it through the last four years in college. Most of this is traditional figure drawing, and may contain some nudity. So if you're at work you may want to wait. It's all tasteful nude modeling though, so no worries there. There may be a few digital ones too though that I did in my illustration classes. Hope you all enjoy!

I finally got to go back to the mural I just recently finished at the end of June to take photos. If I hadn't had technical problems at the time it would have happened sooner and with much more in-depth view of my process. Though my Mac died, so my plans were changed. Some of these are also dark but I was using the lighting from the room to show the mural as its painted to be seen with. Since I had to paint it with that lighting in mind. Though I have added some photos of it in here with the flash on so you can see more detail. I hope you enjoy them :)
Oh and a side note, I didn't paint the "Live Laugh Love" on the doorway, they added that with a stencil after I was done. It was their own personal choice that I leave that spot open for them. As well as it originally going from an italian villa type feel to more of a southwest feel.
