Hello! I’m Sam Soper and I am super happy you’ve decided to check out my art site. It’s still very much a work in progress, so bear with me on any weird looking design stuff.

When I met Amelia, I was working through my Krystalline Kweens tarot series. A die-hard Dungeons & Dragons fan, she immediately fell in love with the elegant femininity I brought to each of my portraits and wanted to see herself or one of her D&D characters portrayed in such a light. After much consideration, she… Read More »Anaïs Birdsong — D&D Character Concept
After the success of my RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4 series, I decided to continue through with a memento portrait for each queen as they were eliminated.

This warm-up piece was done… Read More »RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11
