More of 'The Spoils'

A couple more fairly quick illustrations for The Spoils card game.  Compositions aren't great but whatever, ill make up for it sooner or later.



The cards are 'Miraculous Regeneration' and 'Recycleable Golem'.  Ill let you figure out which is which.

True Detective



Ah man such an amazing show. Great acting, and a captivating story, I hope they can match it in season II, its gonna be difficult though.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

More Prelim stuff





A little more of this preliminary work - people are always asking to see this stuff so here it is.  Its important to develop a systematic approach to your work so you become more efficient - something Im still trying to figure out admittedly. This one was a little tricky because of all the detail in the room...instead of going to a line drawing, I did a quick color pass and did a draw-over to add a little more character to the room. It seemed to work pretty well. Thoughts are always welcome.

On The Hill - Final Illustration + Process GIF





 After all the color studies and and drawings for this little story, I've finally finished an illustration to go with it. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Thoughts welcome! More to come.


On another note, I've been asked by some folks to add a process gif of my illustrations, so for those of you interested, heres a little animation.

Illustration Process









I guess this is how Im doing these illustrations from tonal to line drawing, and color key. Currently working on finishing up this piece which I imagine will change quite a bit from what you see now.  Stay Tuned.

The Final Bus Sketch


This will be the last bus sketch that I post here. Not because I'm ceasing to draw these things but because Im no longer taking the bus(f*yea!) plus I think im making progress with this story and I don't like spoilers. I hope you've enjoyed these for the past couple months, let me know what you think!

Bus Sketch #6

This week the roads were terrible, Ottawa got dumped on hard with snow. As a result I spent about 3 or 4 hours commuting longer than usual that let me finish this out early. Probably my fav drawing since I started doing this back in November.

Color Style Study



I'm working on coming up with a color style for the drawings that I've done on the bus. While I like how it turned out, I think I need to simplify it a little. Stay tuned for more.

The sun coming though the snow into my window at the studio this morning was just too awesome not to draw.  About 30 mins total.

Quick One

I wasn't sure about this when I did it late last night/early this morning. Hans Bacher writes in Dreamworlds to sleep on it, and if it still looks good in the morning then call it good. I still like it so Im calling it.
