Dusk Kiss

An illo from Dancer's In The Dusk, Changeling supplement from White Wolf CCP North America. (C) White Wolf 2009

(Edit - I had critique on for this image, but as it was a commission and is now in print, I think it more appropriate to disable that function...)

The frog looks like a pug! :D

You have some great talent here, keep up the good work. :)
AndyHep's avatar
Not the first person to have mentioned that :)

Thanks for looking!

Love the characters and the pose. I too thought it was a cross between a pug and a frog but that's why i liked it myself.

Great work! Would you consider joining the painted-ladies group and adding your work there?

Very good I really like the mushroom backdrop. Always enjoy your pencil lines showing through the art :)
AndyHep's avatar
Cheers Gavade! Seems like a popular one, this :)

Wow- really bold use of the negative space man!
And you can't go wrong with fishnets either, but the piece de resistance has gotta be froggy=D (is he really trying to get the tongue in on the first kiss?)
Nah there really is a wonderful tension between the two. Well done.

heh, actually its me using full page space for a half page illo - there's text to go in the upper half, basically, but I wanted to bleed it up out of the half page box, and the AD was happy with that. It was fun to do this one, although I intended for it to be a touch less cartoony.

Ahhh i'm a huge changeling fan, this is amazing ^^
AndyHep's avatar
Thanks Tim! One of my recent favourites. I'd love to play the new Changeling sometime, but just don't have the chance nowadays :(

My first thought was "OOooo!" the blank area is just screaming for a frame! cool idea. You did an exceptional job on the shading and the crisp lines are awesome too. I'm gonna have to fave this one. I'd really like to see a photo of it if you ever put a frame on it.
AndyHep's avatar
You know I very rarely put up my own work (says the guy with 5 of his own pictures in his livingroom - ok, ok, they're old oils and me slopping paint around messily...) but this one might make it into a frame someday. In a way its a little shameful, and it goes for most artists I know, but once done most of our work sits in a drawer or on a hard drive, gathering dust.
ArtbyBeans's avatar
As does mine. By no means am I knocking your other works, but this one really caught my eye. I see a frame that is very ornate...but that's just me, I think the style and the quality of your design merits some showing it off a bit. Hope you post it if you frame it.

Hah, cute! I wonder, is he going to turn into a prince? ;) As charming as the frog is, my favorite part is definitely the background. I love the rendering of the mushrooms and skulls, and how the bottoms of the latter fade into shadow. Awesome stuff! :D
AndyHep's avatar
Was really concentrating on values in this one, and still think I could have pushed that envelope. But we're our worst critics, eh? Cheers!
Cacodaemonia's avatar
Hehe, yes. And we always have suh high expectations. ;P
