I’m making this post just to spite Robert Frost. Yes the one and only…

This post is also dedicated to my good friend who likes to punch people in the face who averages 1 post per year yet somehow gives me grief for not posting recently.

I’m also dedicating this to my friend Mortimer, who no doubt will get this image from the interwebs before I’ve even posted it through his stupid phone.

Anyways…

Cyborg Marine Mech Soldier Pencil Sketch

This was a pencil sketch I put together over the last couple of days, I’m guessing about 1 hour of work went into it. Have fun and post more you fools!

The Princess of Demons depicted by me once again.

Demonica Sex Demon Princess

I really enjoyed working this one and used a lot of hard brushes. Lately I’ve adopted a new workflow and it really helps me to refine the edges better which I hope is somewhat obvious in this drawing. This was done entirely in Photoshop, I’m guessing about 5 hours of work went into it.

Ok I made this a couple of weeks ago, I’m not too pleased with it but I’m posting it simply because of the amount of time I inviested in this.

Digital

All done in Photoshop, didn’t keep track of time but I spent at least a couple of hours on this. The mouth and nose and eyes, all gave me trouble. I learned a couple of things from this but it’s hard to say so looking at the results.

A friend turned me on to the Elric series by Michael Moorcock and I finished everything I could find in the local bookstore sometime last year. While I don’t think the Elric books are as amazing as some cultists make them out to be there are some real good concepts here, most centering around the central character. What I found most fascinating about the books is the method by which these stories were originally published and this is another reason why I’ve been so motivated lately. Ever since finishing Elric I’ve made a big push with my writing though I’m afraid to show it yet.

Anyways, here’s a scene from the Elric series. Those who have read the books should be able to recognize it without the need of the post’s title.

Elric and the Sad Giant's Shield

As usual, this began as a tiny pencil sketch which I scanned and painted over digitally. It doesn’t look like much but I spent quite a bit of time trying to get this right and it’s still not right. In particular I really struggled with the colors of the giant but this is it for now. I have a hunch this one might get updated but I have a few other works in the hopper that really need some attention.

I’m dedicating this drawing to my great friend Mortimer and his insatiable love for Pearls Before Swine!

The Hellhound below was abandoned on our plane after his master was murdered. The confused pup ended up wondering the Earth aimlessly until finding and adopting a baby duck.

Hellhound - Guard Duck the Pocket Dog

This originally started as a pencil drawing which was then painted in Photoshop rather too quickly. I like it though, here’s the WIP:

The following digital painting was done for the CHOW 190 at conceptart.org

The idea was to depict a Kitsune which is the Japanese variant of a creature who is half fox half female… basically a vixen. I went ahead with a very orange haired green eyed girl who exhibits both traits of beautiful female and a fox. Perhaps I should’ve made her look more asian but I’ve yet to meet any natural asian redheads. Was that racist of me?

As usual here comes the obligatory WIP animated GIF:

Every time I hear someone refer to “the Magus” or “a Magus” I can’t help but think of the character from Chrono Trigger who is perhaps one of the first really evil villains in a video game who ultimately turned out to be a good guy. Well maybe that’s not true, I’m sure others can bring up other examples, but the fact is that The Magus was extremely memorable. Well today I finished this drawing after about 3 hours worth of work on it, it was my rendition of the character though it was done for the CHOW 188 activity at conceptart.org

Pencil sketch first, matter of fact you can see the WIP below:

Enjoy, and long live the Magus!

Below you can see our final entries which we submitted for the Team CHOW 3 contest. The topic which was thrown out to the teams was to create a Tarot Deck and each team had to choose cards which to illustrate. While the restrictions were to do a minimum of two cards per team member (artist) each team could only choose half of their cards to be of the High Arcana. Our team initially chose only two high arcana cards, the Fool and the High Priestess, because it was said bonus points would be awarded to the teams who did mostly regular cards. Unfortunately we never managed to finish the High Priestess, also no bonus points were awarded which makes me cringe because the High Arcana cards definitely seemed more interesting to draw. Now that I’ve been through two team challenges I’ve learned that following the guidelines is pretty pointless. Also it was very disappointing because conceptart.org decided to not publicize this challenge, especially compared to the previous one, as a result the artists who worked on this got very little exposure. Still, great work was done, and many of us learned a lot by participating (I sure did.)

Of the six cards we finished I only made the King of Pentacles and worked on the Fool and the Ace of Cups as collaboration.


Tarot Card - The Ace of Cups

The Ace of Cups initial concept (giant figure holding a cup filled with lava in a fiery landscape) was proposed by me. Clanlord did the initial drawing of the one depicted above which I then modified and colored, Headhunter put on the finishing touches to this piece.


Tarot Card - King of Pentacles

Tarot Card - The Fool

Headhunter created the remaining 3 cards by himself: the Queen of Pentacles, the Four of Wands and the Two of Wands.


Tarot Card - The Queen of Pentacles

Tarot Card - Four of Wands

Tarot Card - Two of Wands

I’m real proud of the work we did during this challenge, I also feel I learned a lot as opposed to the previous challenge where I just did a big push in terms of gruntwork. You can see we didn’t do well in the final voting section but by looking at the quality of the work I’m now convinced it’s a popularity contest in ca.org when the final votes are tallied up. The good part is that we did great work and finished before the deadline while following the rules and sticking to the topic.

Special thanks to Clanlord and Headhunter for being on the same team with me, it really was an honor.

I was just doodling a few days ago when this ended up solidifying in just a few minutes, I decided to post it after looking at it again tonight.

All done in Photoshop, about 20 minutes of work.

Some concept work done by me for the Doomsday Dream Clan entry. It seems we will use the Fool’s design in the finals. The version of the High Priestess portrayed here will probably not be used in the finals, just testing ideas and coloring methods.

All done in Photoshop, cheers!
