The Wasteland



I like the top image more as a painting but the bottom more as a drawing. Because I tried to do something weird with the lighting in the bottom shot it fell apart without something in reality to base it off of. I should have done better homework. Live and learn right? In fact, I think I'm overdue for regular art homework these days.

I got THIS BOOK yesterday. Albert Dorne is hugely inspirational to me and this book not only had great artwork but also great exposition. The interview I read last night was enlightening.

The Tinkerer


I've been fortunate in my career to have mostly been tasked with believable characters. I have a distaste for comic book character types where everything is idealized. I used to love that stuff as a teenager but things change. Realism (not in the stylistic sense) is so fascinating. I guess you can't beat reality. Sorry, no link today.

The Lawkeeper/Rancher



 

These were concept sketches I did exploring the law keeper Cooper. He's also a rancher.

Karl Simon did some beautiful images for Les Miserables:

The big guy




Watch out for this big guy. He packs a wallop if you're on his bad side.

In other news Thomas von Kummant's new comic is looking incredible. Thomas blows my mind. I really really really admire his work.
