We recently created a website for the American Heart Association’s annual fundraiser the Heart Ball. This year the theme is “An Evening In Wonderland.” It’s finally up now and for the most part I’m really happy with it. There were a few things I don’t think turned out the way that I was hoping for, but I guess that’s always the case. I did most of the illustration, with the help of a talented designer here at Vest named Amber Stanton and some background blending from others.
Today I finally got to see my first painting for Privateer Press in their second book for the IK RPG, No Quarter Presents Iron Kingdoms Urban Adventure. That’s a mouth full.
This is a serial killer named Gavriel di Maro, from one of the provided stories for GMs. So the painting is a bit gory.
I had quite a lot of fun with this, especially the background. I hope to get a chance to do some more work for them soon. I’d love to do a Warjack.
I have an issue that I’m sure many artists have to deal with, I am often unhappy with my old work.
With this Elven Sorceress illustration I rushed to finish it and it has been bugging me ever since. So of course I’m reworking it now. I’m much happier with how the new version is coming along.
Filling in space in the sketchbook. I’m a dyslexic sketcher, if I do one sketch I don’t like and I feel like it’s messing with the next sketches I just skip to another part of the sketchbook. I always come back and fill in later.
Right now I’m incredibly busy making illustrations and concepts for 4 separate clients. Who likes sleeping anyway?
In the little free time I have I’m trying (pretty unsuccessfully so far) to do plenty of studies of the face in an attempt to develop a shorthand for quickly drawing features. I have a tendency to render the living shit out of every image and I have to turn it off with practice.
