Practice makes perfect.  I've recently taken a step back so to speak to look at what I tend to avoid with my work to see what I can improve on.  And every single time I seem to have left line art off the table.  So guess what I'm going to dive into for a while?

I'm definitely still doing the painterly style for most of my commissions, but I've had a few people approach me about more cell-shaded works.  I always gladly do both, but I severely don't want to put anything that looks terrible out into the world, so it's looks like it's time to hit the grindstone and see what I can learn. Practice, practice, practice.

I've always loved illustration with great concepts behind them. Whether it's a great story, or a visual metaphor, I love to incorporate it into my work.

I attended college at Pennsylvania College of Art and Design, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Illustration. I'm currently living and working as a Freelance Illustrator in Phoenix, Arizona with my two wonderful cats.

Be sure to check out my shops! Each one has prints available, as well as cups, journals, totes, etc.

Hunter Troll Crabwalk by RachelLaughman
Hunter Troll Crabwalk
I just started playing World of Warcraft, and was getting a kick out of how hunter trolls run while they shoot.  Decided to use it as some line art and flat color practice. (also i left out the forehead markings because it looked absolutely ridiculous and I couldn't bring myself to leave it in)

If anyone knows of something that could improve my technique, please let me know.  I'd love to improve this style so I can have a professional technique other than my usual painterly style.
