Still have not had the time! lol! :) Still, A LOT to showcase.  I get a LOT of favs, but few purchases on this site.  I try to upload only low-res images for viewing or personal reference downloads only but I'm curious of why DA doesn't sell as well as Fine Art America.  Both BOOST their base prices dramatically so the initial cost is far more than I sell them for off of my main website. They do offer the bells and wistles with framing, canvas, mugs, cups, etc.  I try hard to keep the prices down, but going through and globally changing all of my prices is a huge hassle and undertaking.  Both sites don't really "listen" to recommendations via email by the artists that do this for a living (yes, it's still my passion and divine order to be an artist - the parable of talents...) but it would be nice to have more pro-active response from both sites directly.  There is so much to see on Deviant Art and FAA that both are amazing sites that you can get lost in looking, but I have to say, it's very, very difficult to find any artist or photographer unless you know exactly what you are looking for. They need to both either need to clean house or separate the sites into various categories as everything is art, but all is subjective to taste.   I love it all, but it's still hard to find me and I can't even do it - LOL! :) (In the search engines) - I will upload a mass amount very soon, so please keep coming.  :)  If you do like my work - do check out my website - www.JamesHillGallery.com as it's becoming an e-commerce site and I do take commissions and do lay-aways for the originals via square or paypal.  You can reach me at JamesHillArtwork@gmail.com for inquires.  Thank you and thank you for all the love you have shown me through the years. 
I'm still here, I've created a LOT of new art since my last post.  I've have been incredibly busy with commissions and shows like Megacon, DragonCon, Supercon and a multitude of various conventions and travel along with creating art, I rarely have time to sit and blog and post my latest.  I'll upload a burst of new paintings as soon as I get some free time to do so which I figure will be in a week from Today.  Thank you everyone for your love and if you want to follow me for my up-to-the-minute posts including my art and my cons, go to and LIKE my fanpage on facebook.  www.facebook.com/JamesHillGallery

Thank you for all of your love and support over the years.

James Christopher Hill
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Hello, My name is James Christopher Hill. I am a professional artist that lives in Charleston, South Carolina. I've been sketching and painting my whole life and it's only been recently that I've been revisiting my childhood passion of creating Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror scenes. I'm formally trained with a Bachelorette in Fine Art from the Ringling School of Art and Design but my greatest inspiration and training has come from admiring and studying great artists throughout the ages. Some of my major inspirations are of course the classic artists such as DaVinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rodin, Vermeer, Rembrandt, Goya...the list goes on and on... New masters that really inspire me are Syd Mead, Ryan Church, Frank Frazetta, Jeffrey Jones, Alan Lee, Doug Chiang, Joe Johnston, Ralph McQuarrie, Roger Dean and yes, the list is just as long....
I hope to one day, with LOTS of practice, to be as good as one of those artists!
I love history, philosophy, theology, mythology, archeology, anthropology, astronomy and architectural studies as well and they all inspire my work and the way I approach painting. Music, literature and poetry definitely play a major roll in my creation of works.
I hope you like my works or that my works inspire you.

Oh, and I do smile, really.... Such a "serious photograph". :)
