Science Fiction

MCC Title Pages 72dpi

This is a post-apocalypse sci-fi illustration with mutants, ruins, laser swords, a disintigrator pistol. a curly tree, mushrooms and all the other good things in life. The white spaces are places for text to go. It goes across 2 pages, so imagine a seam through the middle. For Goodman Game’s “Mutant Crawl Classics.”

Update

TETV_07_Cover_low

The Excellent Traveling Volume #7 is going to come out soon… I did the cover. More details on James Malisewzski’s g+ feed! The wrinkly looking dudes in the above illustration are “shunned ones” from M.A.R. Barker’s world of Tekumel.

I got back into town recently from the west coast, am still battling sinusitis (the fact that I have antibiotics means I am now winning) and am busy on some artwork and moving to a new day job, hence no recent updates.


Autobiographical Comics

I’m currently working on roughing out a comic sort of like “The Cube” which I did back in September. (link) I don’t really know how to “write” comics… getting the text nice and legible is sort of a challenge for me and I worry that I get too hung up in tangents or lost in details. Plus, it is autobiographical, which is hard since I worry that I am always trying to make myself look good rather than be honest about the story I am trying to tell. Working title is ‘Pariah’ and it tells the story of how I feel like I became a pariah at one point.

Don’t have any samples to show (too early), so go look at ‘Cube’ if you want a preview I guess.

One of my favorites is this character sheet border I did for Barrowmaze (one side):

Cannibal Island

The above is a splash page illustration from a recent commission showing our doughty adventurers rowing up to an island no doubt inhabited by cannibals and worse.

For one of the illustrations for the same book, I tried doing the illustration in both pen-and-ink and digital means:

Pen and ink:

cannibal-p8-and-9-72dpi

Digital:

p8-and-9-manga-72dpi

Both used the same original pencil drawing. Although the digital work flow allows easier changes and revisions, I like the line quality of pen and ink better.


The Eastern Forest

Here is a map I drew for Owl Knight Publishing’s “Sky of Flame” book coming out later this year. You can find out more on Thorin Thompson’s Kickstarter pages.
