Crimson Digital art 2024 This one actually turned out a lot better than I was expecting. I wasn't even intending for such vibrant and bold colors, but really like how it turned out. I think I'll probably do more like this. Originally I had a ton of extra symbols, face paints, etc on top of the red war paint, but after receiving some really great advice I took it all off. Looks so much better this way. https://video.wixstatic.com/video/16c452_fd0e509baabd4e39bb7d2ae07d80c066/1080p/mp4/file.mp4 Prints available at InPRNT: For some reason this is the song I had in the back of my mind for this o ..read more

Surrender Digital art 2023 This one seemed to take extra long to finish. I had so many different versions all looking almost exactly the same lol. Decided on this one though, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Something else kinda cool I just realized recently, I did some math (definitely not my strong point) and my artwork has gone out to 23 different countries now. Weird to think about strangers around the world hanging my art on their walls. I also just realized Christmas is getting really close! Is it just me, or has time been going by really crazy fast lately? Metal prints ava ..read more

Enchant: A Belly Dancer Vampire with Tattoos

Enchant Digital art 2023 This one is based off of some stock photography of @littleredrosefox that I purchased from @imrachelbradley and @noahbradley. I can't remember if it was directly from their site Reference Pictures, or from their ArtStation shop. I've bought numerous photo packs from both locations, they've got some of the best stock photography out there. It's interesting, I was originally planning on adding a bunch of tattoos of different song lyrics, but the harder I tried to add them, the more off they looked. Most of the time my artwork comes out different than I was intending. It ..read more

Bite: A Tattooed Vampire Goth Girl

Bite Digital art 2023 I was aiming for a gothic vampire themed portrait, with a tattoo of some lyrics from a Bush song called Mouth. I used to listen to this band like crazy when I was a kid, and still listen to them today. Their first two albums Sixteen Stone, and Razorblade Suitcase were hugely influential to me growing up. The artwork is also based on a photo of a model from Studio Grafit in part of a stock photography pack I bought off of their ArtStation shop. I've purchased several photography packs from them, and they're really great. Prints available at, Society6, Inprnt, and ArtStat ..read more

Not For You: A Tattooed Gothic Warrior Portrait

NIN Girl Digital art 2023 by Justin Gedak For some reason the idea of making a portrait of a warrior with a tattoo of Pearl Jam's "Not For You" song on a shoulder has been repeating itself in my head for months now. I tried a few different attempts with some other portraits, but none of them turned out. I'm really happy with this one though! I remember being really excited buying their Vitalogy cd when I was a kid. They were my favorite band. My first cd I ever owned was actually one of their previous albums Ten. I remember my friend first introducing me to their music on a little radio in th ..read more

Edge - A Surreal Gothic Fantasy Portrait Painting

Edge Oil on canvas 24" x 36" 2021 Model: Toniquinne I've really been enjoying working with just raw umber, ivory black, and titanium white for my recent oil paintings. This is my third timelapse video I've made for the oil paintings. Check it out below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9vwHqHGwSw I'll have the painting available for purchase in a few weeks. It looks even better in person. Because of the way I paint in layers, much of the richer shadowed colors appear a lot deeper and three dimensional in person. This is because the colors are created through using multiple thinner glazed layer ..read more

Death's Head Hawkmoth Digital art 2021 by Justin Gedak I've been toying around with the idea of creating some sort of gothic moth design for awhile now, and finally got around to making this surreal black and white death head moth. A couple of the sections (the skull, and surrealism themed eyes on the wings) I cut out from previous paintings of mine, and then modified them further to fit in with the painting. Super happy with the way it turned out! I've have t-shirt designs available at Design by Humans, TeePublic, Society6, Redbubble, and Curioos. A variety of prints, laptop skins, and other ..read more
