Welcome to my Art Galleries! Before you enter, please take a few minutes to read this introduction.




First, all artwork in these galleries is copyrighted, original work by me, Rod Shelley. No work may be used for any purpose whatsoever without permission. If you wish to download an image for your own reference, I ask that you please contact me first. Images may not be used for any purpose that would involve redistribution of any kind (such as on-line greeting cards, coffee mugs, mouse pads, etc). If I find this is being done, I will have to place a watermark on all images, which will negatively impact the enjoyment of the images.



(August, 2011) I am slowly, as time and my busy schedule allow, doing a complete makeover on the Art Gallery as part of an overall makeover of my entire website. The older artwork that has been here for these many years will soon be placed in a seperate gallery devoted to my older artwork. The art you see here will be gradually replaced by my newer works.



I have in the last couple of years gained new knowledge, and new tools that has taken my art to a level far beyond what I ever thought I would be able to create. In addition to my old friend Photoshop, I have added Poser 8, Bryce 7.1, Apophysis, Mandelbulb 3D, Incendia, and just recently, Vue 9 Pioneer and Poser Pro 2012. I plan on adding a few more tools - quite possibly Zbrush - soon.



The galleries are Fantasy Art, Glamour & Pinup Art, and Miscellaneous & Experimental Art. You will also find links to additional galleries below as they are added.



The Fantasy Art gallery contains my interpretations of fantasy-related subjects such as Elves, Fairies, Dragons, and other fantasy subjects and creatures. I hope to do a series of Tolkien-related pieces soon.



The Glamour & Pinup Gallery is pretty self-explanatory. This gallery will contain images involving nudity, and semi-nudity.



The Miscellaneous & Experimental Gallery will contain anything that does not fit into the above categories, as well as some experimental art.



As you will undoubtedly notice from the paragraphs above, and images below, one of my favorite art subjects involves figurative work, primarily the female figure. As a word of warning, some images will contain artistic nudity. It will be tasteful – you will find no pornography here. However, if any type of nudity offends you, you may want to bypass the Fantasy, Pinup, and Sexy Faeries galleries. In addition, all thumbnails will be labeled if the artwork contains nudity. In this way, you may still view the non-nude work without having to look at the works that contain nudity. The Miscellaneous gallery will contain no nudity at all.



I will happily accept commissioned work, but I cannot and will not create artwork (including business cards, advertisements, logos, or RPG characters) for free. You may use the contact page to inquire about commissioning artwork.

Do you believe in Faeries?

Believe...
I invite you to meet some of my little friends.

I’ll warn you right now, these are not your common, everyday Faeries – forget about those cartoon fairies you may have seen on TV. These little ladies are sexy, sassy, and full of life. Faeries with attitudes. They delight in a beautiful day, and absolutely revel in a gorgeous, moonlit night! There a few creatures that exude such unrestrained joy in simply living. They love beautiful things, especially shiny, sparkling, glassy objects. And they delight in a colorful garden. You’ll not find these Faeries flitting about in tiny tattered dresses – these ladies are little divas. They love to dress up, in sexy clothes and high heels. The supermodels of the fantasy world - when they have anything on at all, that is! So bear that in mind as you explore this world. If you are offended by nudity, be warned! There is some mild nudity in this section. On the other hand, if you have come here looking for explicit, porn-style images, you will be disappointed.

For thousands of years, they have populated myth and legend, keeping company with Elves, Dragons, Gnomes, Hobbits, Unicorns, and other legendary creatures. It is said that many myths and legends have their roots in fact. So, you may want to stop and ponder a bit next time someone tells you "there is no such thing…" Was that large butterfly you saw last week really a butterfly, or was it something else? After all, they are very skilled at remaining out of sight, unless they want to be seen – which is rarely, unless you are lucky, indeed!

Fae (plural of Faeries), are known for their innate mischievousness – they delight in playing pranks on us big folk. Not malicious mischiefs like a Gremlin, but harmless little jokes. Have you ever searched all over the house for your car keys, only to find them in plain sight a half hour later? Wait – was that a giggle I just heard?

These little ladies will tease and flirt with you, and if you should encounter one, just enjoy the sight – it will bring you luck. But leave the butterfly net at home. If you try to catch one, you’ll find just how resourceful they can be. You will very quickly find yourself fast asleep for a few hours. Fae are magical creatures, and they are very skilled with magic – they could teach Harry Potter quite a few things. No wand or Phoenix feathers required!

So, sit back, relax and let my little lady-friends take you on a journey into their world. Welcome, fair traveler, to the world of...
