Darkness Concept Sketch

This was a concept sketch for a painting that I did in 2006. The sketch was painted in photoshop, the final painting in oils. The painting varied somewhat from this, but the general idea is here.

Paladin Concept Sketch

This is a character concept I worked up a while back- possibly from 2005- but I never finished it. So today I thought I would finish it for the blog. Enjoy!

Orcs Illustration

Here is the finished illustration from last post's drawing. I drew the background seperately from the characters, then scanned and pasted both drawings together in Photoshop and started in with the painting. The element in the sky is a runic skychart of zodiac symbols.

Orcs Preliminary Drawing

This is a drawing I did for a roleplaying game interior illustration. I'll post the finished illustration next time so you can compare the two. I always get a kick out of looking at artists' sketches and drawings, and so hope you enjoy this bit of behind the scenes as well. I'll have to paint more orcs-- they're fun to do.

ASIM Cover Art

This a cover I did for Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine early in the year. Another good print job, with the colors and values of the actual illustration printing fairly accurately.

The illustration itself can be seen here.

Card Art

Here is an illustration project I worked on earlier this year. It's a set of tarot cards based on the constellations and related mythology, and published by Dogtown Games. I just got my deck in the other day and I have to say, they look great! I think they did a fantastic job with them. The cards just look good-- very nice design and color, plus the illustrations printed well.
