Really enjoyed getting a chance to work on my friend Felipe's Wonderful series, The Lost Kids. [link] If you haven't seen it yet, please stop by and take a look.
I ended up doing 2 of these(this being the 2nd, but oddly the 1st one to be posted) and I remember after doing the 1st one I couldn't wait to do up the 2nd show off more of the main cast of characters.
Not sure which cover/book/posters these will be for yet but looking forward to seeing how the final color version turns out. Felipe seems to always have a great ability for getting/working with some amazing digital painters.
Had a great time with their faces and costumes(reeeeeealy liked her costume in front) as well as drawing something that's for all-ages. Definitely something I'd like to do more of in the future.
Thought I'd also share the prelim to The Lost Kids Cover B [link] so you can see what things look like before they get transferred over to the final Bristol boards. I had never drawn these characters before so I did a lot more detail than I normally would.
Some layout designs for the last fun page of the "MONSTERS MAIDENS & MAYHEM" convention artbook I'm doing up. Will have the final line-art up in about a day or so.
Met the very cool British Cosplayer/model Tanya Tate at my last show and found out she's a big fan of the retro "Hammer Horror" films from the 60's and 70's.
Gonna be doing some fun Cosplay/comic pinup crossover work with her later on this month as well as finally coming out with the "MONSTERS MAIDENS & MAYHEM" movie poster book just in time for Halloween. Enjoy!
I had a great opportunity to do some commission work for Marie and Fred and their wonderful character Tyra, from "La Quête de l'Aube" that I'm sure you've seen everywhere on DA. Was super excited to draw this awesome character.
Marie really emphasized that she wanted Tyra to be "overly curvy", so good times with that.
This is the prelim for the 2nd poster, but I ended up not using this face/hair/hand and also for the final one, I decided to go all out on the background.(Monsters, waterfalls, jailbait elves... you'll see what I mean.)
Even though I didn't use this one, still thought it was kind of fun and wanted to share on DA. Enjoy!
Yaaaaaaaaaayyyy! Finally get to post the cover line-art for the Trade Paperback of Knightingail Vol 1. (Eloa aka Knightingail and her bff Kaeli, the Fox-Girl with the bow)
I had a great opportunity to do some cover work for the Trade Paperback of Wayne Gardiner's amazingly fun series Knightingail Vol 1. I'll be doing up a total of 7 cover for this wonderful all-ages book over the next several months. [link]
I was really excited to draw these awesome characters for the 1st time and hopefully put my little spin on their designs. (I.E. I've drawn some "foxy looking girls" but I've never drawn a "Fox-Girl" like Kaeli before and I wanted to make her a bit more cute/visually approachable, so I made her considerable more human looking than she is in the series. Wayne, Kaeli's creator, really liked it, and we ended up going in that direction, so good times.
Also had to change their body types considerably. I love Tina Francisco's and GENZOMAN's Amazing art, but when I drew up my style of faces and used their body types/character designs, both girls looked waaaaaaaaaay too suggestive. So believe it or not, this is the toned down version. I'd like to see if we can tone it down even more for future covers to make it feel more Disneyesque/all-age appropriate.
Again a very cool book and great people to work with.
I'll be sharing the digitally painted version on DA later on today. -(Also put my "N" initial, "Where's Waldo" style in handful of places on this cover as well.
I had a great opportunity to do some commission work for Marie and Fred and their wonderful character Tyra, from "La Quête de l'Aube" I had a lot of fun getting to draw this awesome character for the 1st time, as well as adding in some over-the-top bad-guys/girls.
In addition to Tyra being "overlycurvy", Marie had wanted a some-what sketchy look for the art which was a lot easier to do.
This one as well was just supposed to be a simple single character shot but I had been sick in bed and hadn't been able to work on anything for bit, so when I was able to have a go at it, I kind of went over the top with a succubus, 2 demons and a giant/surprisingly dexterous squid. Still all just goofy and playful. Hadn't really considered/intended it at the time, but I guess this one did turn out a bit "ecchi". Good times though.
In the process of having "Vest" color this one as well, but until then enjoy some sketchy-fun line-art!
Some line-art for the last fun page of the "MONSTERS MAIDENS & MAYHEM" convention artbook I'm doing up.
I met the very cool British Cosplayer/model Tanya Tate at my last show and found out she's a big fan of the retro "Hammer Horror" films from the 60's and 70's. So the idea of Cosplaying the amazing fun Ingrid Pitt was a must. Did up a version A and a slightly more risque version B which will be in the book as well. Both turned out beautifully in the digitally painted final versions.
Gonna be doing some fun Cosplay/comic pinup crossover work with her for the upcoming convention season, as well as finally coming out with the "MONSTERS MAIDENS & MAYHEM" movie poster book. Can't wait to post the digitally painted final version of this one on DA! Enjoy!
