Import Market by Zirngibl
Import Market
Inspired by the Italian Renaissance, this is Venice-like city featuring a rudimentary "hydro-arcane power" - useful magic generated by the kinetic energy of the surrounding waterfalls.  This, in addition to its strategic trading location, has made the city very wealthy.

The main building in this scene sports a marketplace, where citizens can purchase luxury goods with prices unaffected by tariffs.  (This is due to a legal loophole, whereas the building is considered an island not directly part of the main city.)

Small cargo and bus-like boats are pulled along elevated waterways, and denizens could easily spend most of their time on the city's rooftops.

I also will be sending this to Wizards of the Coast with the intention of getting MTG card work, preferably land cards!  If it were a card, it would be a blue/white land card with the ability to convert an island card into ANY two lands when tapped.  Either that, or a commerce ability that allows the owner to "buy" a player's opposing artifacts, paid by discarding a land or two.
New Fall Releases by Zirngibl
New Fall Releases
Done for the Provantage Corporation's buyer's guide cover, this illustrates the theme of new releases in the Fall.  It's a visual/verbal pun on the verb and the season.  It's a fairly 3D-heavy illustration for the subject matter.  I modeled it in 3DS Max and rendered a couple passes in Vue, cleaning up in Photoshop.  Once again unsure how to categorize it, hah.  The "3-Dimensional Art" category needs a "surreal" or "whimsical" option.
Anerimarsh by Zirngibl
Another reworked version of a Livestream demo I did awhile back. I've always really been drawn to marshes, probably because I played so much in one as a kid. In fact it started as more of a magical realism idea where it was going to be a kid version of me sitting on the stump, but I decided it would be fun to make an amphibian race instead.

I am a concept artist and illustrator living in San Diego. I am currently working on my own I.P. as well. Most of the new work I release will be in regards to this.

I've been trying to update my web presence lately, and realized it had been 2.5 years since I put anything on here!
The longer I put it off, the more daunting the task became.  And I was almost afraid I'd get sucked back into the flurry that can be dA.  And over time, it started to slip my mind altogether...
But when people googled my name, I didn't want them to find old work.  I considered just deleting this account and starting fresh, but I realized I have way too many memories sunk into this place.  I like that people with a long enough internet shovel can find crappy stuff I did as far back as middle school.  And I don't want to lose the friends I met along the way.  Oh yeah, and make new ones.  That too.  :P

So I put almost 50 new pieces up in one day!  (I kept them in chronological order for the most part.)
That'll teach me for procrastinating.

Hope you don't mind the watch. You're incredibly talented and I'm a big fan of League of Legends as well as some of the other games you've done conceptual work for (that's aside from the fact that the rest of your gallery is amazing as well). :)
