Qilin are gentle mythical creatures who bring prosperity and serenity. They originated from China and are often compared to the unicorn. They also happen to be one of my absolute favorite mythical creatures. They have the head of a dragon, horns of a deer, mane and tail of a lion, legs of an ox, and a body covered in fish scales. Really now, how can you beat that? Love these big guys. Wish I had one.
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

It was difficult to choose a subject seeing there are so many wonderful and unique characters from which to choose. After much thought and many failed sketches, I finally settled on the Childlike Empress from The NeverEnding Story
I've wanted to paint the Childlike Empress ever since I first read the book a few years ago, so it was fun being able to paint her for such a great cause.
Here's my piece in the auction

"Pokemon Trainers" circa grade 7
After a hiatus of more than a year, I started watercoloring again. I admit, it's been a struggle at times. It's not easy re-teaching myself to paint, so I did a practice piece. Naturally, my subject of choice was a pokemon master in training.

Seriously, go check him out now. He's awesome. Cory Godbey-
I currently work as an in-house illustrator for a local textbook publisher. I draw pictures, all day, every day. It's my favorite way to spend my time and the most natural way for me to express myself. I plan to use this blog to share ideas, sketches, and paintings I'm working on.
Hope you enjoy your stay.
And I hope you're happy now, Brother.
