More DAR Characters

Yes I'm still at it. The good folks down at Atomic Overmind Press are still giving me work on characters for their RPG series " The Day After Ragnarok". I've been working on and off on this project for a couple of years now and I hope you will notice a progression in my work from Day one to today. I'm posting up a series of 10 characters that I completed for their extension modules.
Enjoy. All images were completed in Pencil on Britsol Board.

And you thought that I don't use my sketchbook anymore!

Although it is true that I have been working mostly digital these days I do still draw in the old sketchbook albeit not as often as before. I went through a 3 month phase where I thought that I should only work digital period. Blah Blah Blah. Needless to say, I'm back on the wagon and here is a sampling of images for your viewing pleasure.


Here is my latest installment of Riley Method Pen drawings inspired by Chris Legaspi's posts up on his blog Freshdesigner. I really enjoy doing these quick 5-10 minute portraits and I find it to be excellent warm up exercises . According to Stat Counter, people out there seem to be searching the term Riley Method and are taking a look at my images so I decided to put together another page for anyone out there who is interested.

These Images are simply more Ball Point Pen sketches from my Sketchbook. We have some figures and some portraits. The Portraits took me about 20 min or so each.

Pencil Studies from my sketchbook. Every once in a while I pick up a pencil to prove that I can still use one but for now my favorite drawing tool is the humble ball point pen. Call Me Crazy!

Lastly we have a scan of a page out of my sketchbook. This i'd say would be what a typical page looks like ( at least one that I'd be willing to share ).

Process Animation of How I created that Piece:

Process shot from a Magpie Image I'm working on. The other day one of these guys jumped right up onto the hood of my jeep and sat there for over a minute. It was surreal and I figured, that I'd better do something about it. So this is what I am doing....

Figure Drawing.

Recognize the character? Hint: he was a nazi spy in a certain 1980's movie....

Story Boards: Safety Film

Hey Gang, I just wrapped up a Story Board Assignment for Kelly Brothers Productions here in Calgary. The film is going to be for a safety video up at a Shell plant in Fort McMurray. It was a great gig to work on and I hope to do more in the near future.

Bird Study

Today I'm posting up another study but this time you get a process piece. This means you get to see an animation of the painting as it evolves from Sketch to finished piece. The original idea was for me to follow the step by step process on page 69 of "Practical Guide to Painting" by Vicenc B. Ballestar and Jordi Vigue. Well i got to about step 3 and decided to go off on my own tangent. However, once completed, I did adjust the levels to get that saturated gouache look that they were going for. All in all it was a fun exercise and I may do more in the future.
