Alchemist painting

Finished this Friday night. I got to experiment with a new digital painting technique over pencils that seems to work better but still not crazy about it. I'm still trying to get my digital stuff to look more traditional, but feel like I'm fighting it every step of the way.

This was originally supposed to be used for a GM screen for Carmine, but was decided against. It's cool though...I learned a few things and honestly, I hated the original drawing anyway - it was a concept sketch that got drafted into service for the first book with a little clean up that I was then asked to paint on a fairly quick turnaround. If I'm asked to revisit this guy again, I'm starting from scratch. LOL.

And before anyone asks: yes, I totally based the color scheme for him off Mal Reynolds in Firefly, and those are indeed Louboutin inspired boots. LOL!

Dragonflight was a complete bust...

I think my experience can be summed up by the following short dialogue:

Mongolian Chieftain: "Conan, what is best in life?"

Conan: "Apparently not Dragonflight...:/"

Mongolian Chieftain: "That is good."

The kind of stuff I do during gaming sessions much to my GM's regret...

In my defense, however, when you have a new character, you're OBLIGATED to let everyone know what he/she looks like, dammit! LOL

Dragonflight 2011

Just a heads up...I'll be attending Dragonflight 2011 in Bellevue, WA with Attention Span Games next weekend, Aug 12-14th, and will be bringing prints of 10 different pieces with me, shown below:

All prints are 8.5"x11" on 80# stock, and will be priced at $10 each or 2 for $15. Swing by the ASG booth and say hi! =)

Something goes horribly, horribly wrong with DC's redesign of "The New 52"...

LOL found this quickie sketch while going through saved artwork, looking for pieces to make into prints. =)

More happy WIP.

OK, I have to admit that I kind of like scanning and posting stuff in progress, if only to have a record for myself of what I've done. Here's another, the female brawler.

More WIP stuff...

More stuff I'm working on for Carmine. This is for the Terror Hunter caste.

and here are the finished pencils. =)...
