Inspired by nature

 
The wonder and beauty of Mother Nature never ceases to inspire me.


You find the most beautiful and delicate things if you only open your eyes. This is one of the major reasons I love hiking. These are things you can't really appreciate completely in a book or photo.


Life is all around us everywhere.


The beauty and the colors inspire ideas for character costumes and an overall feel of my concepts.
    

Besides photography, when I hike I will often stop and sketch if something catches my eye.


These creatures have their own rules and their own problems. Sometimes our paths cross.


Nature is truly phenomenal.


I haven't started any water type creatures for my stories yet, but I fell them coming.


These are just a few photos from my travels that I wanted to share because they inspired this series.
