Tali'zorah

Tali'zorah nar Rayya


Title: Tali'zorah nar Rayya
Medium: Charcoal, Chalk
Scale: Original is 8.5" x 11"

Notes: I think that Tali is probably my favorite character from the entire series. Garrus follows closely behind, but she's my number one for the most likable character.

Queen of Blades

Queen of Blades


Title: Queen of Blades
Medium: Charcoal, Chalk
Scale: Original is 8.5" x 11"

Notes: I've been wanting to do Kerrigan justice for quite some time. I think that she is probably one of my favorite tragedies from games in the 90's. If you've never played the original StarCraft simply for the story mode, you were really missing out.

Commission -- Pronto Pup

Commission: Pronto Pup


Title: Commission: Pronto Pup
Medium: Charcoal, Chalk, Pastel
Scale: Original is 8.5" x 11"

Notes: Commissioned by a teacher that I had back at Memphis College of Art, Adam Pankewycz.
It was out of the blue with a break-neck turnaround, but I got it done with no questions asked. It has since been matted and framed and back at him.

If you would like to start a commission like this, let me know at matkaminski@yahoo.com and let's work something out!

Good Night, Dream Master - A Tribute

Good Night, Dream Master


Title: Good Night, Dream Master
Medium: Charcoal, Chalk, Pastel
Scale: Original is 9" x 12"

Notes: Wes Craven pretty much brought me the epitome of my favorite villain. While I know that he did many other films, a lot of them great, I will always know him for my first horror movie icon - Freddy Kreuger. I still remember as a kid watching in absolute terror and glee at the insanity that these films offered.
I think that he created some very iconic characters throughout the years, but the nightmare lord has to be one of my favorites!
