Tyrannohotep's Digital Art Thread (1 Viewer)

My preferred software for digital artwork is Clip Studio Paint, but I also have some experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. My favorite subjects include dinosaurs and other prehistoric lifeforms, people from ancient history, and strong and sexy heroines (some of whom come from my stories).

You can find a portfolio of my work here.

Anyway, I'll start this thread off with some depictions of historical figures...
