Here we have Roald Dahl’s four famous brats (from right to left), Veruca Salt, Mike Teavae, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, and our hero of course, Charlie Bucket. Reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my Mom is one of my favorite childhood memories, and that memory inspired me to do some character designing! I wanted to experiment with only using graphite drawing and digital color, aiming for a flatter more textured storybook feel. Overall, it was a fun prompt to work with!
Ryan used to be a warrior, he was a Guard to protect Mulgore and the Thunder Bluff. When the Centaurs invaded Mulgore, Ryan took up arms and fighted against the Centaurs.
One day, Ryan has been surrounded by a team of Centaurs, he fighted and killed them all. But his right arm was seriously injured. There was no way to cure the arm when he came back to the camp. The horde doctor had to cut Ryan's right arm off.
Blood Hoof, the chief of Thunder Bluff, was sad to heard about it. He invited the most famous Goblin engineers from Orgrimmar to help Ryan. They made a prosthetic arm with a cannon attached to it and equiped it on Ryan.
From then on, Ryan has a new lease of life, and was appointed general of the siege legion of Tauren.
Page 5 of Nonplayer #1, released April 6 2011 by Image Comics.
All of the pages for Nonplayer are drawn directly in Photoshop CS3 using a Cintiq tablet monitor. For line work I use default brush settings at 100% hardness.
For coloring, I use the popular Multifill and Flatten plugins ([link]) to build selectable areas of color, and then I add new layers of color at different blend modes and opacities (this is a pretty random, haphazard, and slow process).

A print/poster I did a year ago for JWT/Quiksilver. The free space in the bottom half was left for a photo of Candide Thovex. They used a very fitting one - you can see the final poster at my blog: [link]
Tricky page, this one. I messed up the color schedule in the previous page a bit, which lead to complications on this page - mostly with the big panel. It took me for ever to get it right and I'm still not entirely happy with it. But I've said it before and I'll say it again. Can't be 100% happy with every page.
For those of you have a super cluttered message overview in dA and easily miss journal updates (I know I do): I've kicked off writing a series of journals about Improving on art skills, and the frustration and angst that goes with it. If your own quest for progress is completely frustration free this journal is not for you, but otherwise, take a look: elsakroese.deviantart.com/jour…
Oh boy, look what I found in my personal projects folder, an angry woman! I did this one a while ago for practice. It's a personal piece of one of my own characters. I was mostly practicing painting glowie runes, which is an essential skill that I have yet to master.
This is a character that I've been thinking about, but haven't really done anything with. I hope you like it! If you feel so inclined, you can see the sketch and work-in-progress shots on My Tumblr!
Another vaguely-meta Playboy-esque cartoon. The idea is they're at the opera, and the guy's like "Yes yes, the performance is quite good, but the story! A woman, marrying simply for money? Preposterous!" and the old guy's just chewing his gums going "quite right, quite right"
hahaha anyway, the point is, I couldn't get the wording right and fit the punchline in the end of the sentence. If you have a suggestion please comment, and if there's a really good one I'll put it under the cartoon where it's supposed to go!
I've been trying to get more local color into my illustrations, it's a real struggle for me. Photoshop.
<edit> JEEZ! I usually try to stay away from talking stats, but seriously over 750 faves in 8 hours? I love you guys. Your comments make me smile, and your support keeps me making! </edit>

Created for the game Legend of the Cryptids. The brief called for a character called Aurora who is the younger sister of Helios the sun god. She is a bringer of light, understanding and growth. In this regular version of the character she is passively watching from above, deciding whether she should go down and end the conflict.
