2020 work roundup

Here are a bunch of images I did in the last year, presented in no particular order. Most images are drawn using pen and ink, graphite, ink washes, etc.


Battle Scene

Recently completed work for a European publisher. Ink, ink washes and graphite on paper. Although it will be printed in greyscale, I worked on it with colored inks – working with watered down colored inks help me to balance the tones and I enjoy the way the original drawing looks (although those who see it in print won’t know about the color). In the final version, the publisher will add blocks of text over the image and I arranged the figures to allow for that.

In addition to being covered to gray scale, the above image has had a contrast adjustment and I used the clone tool to touch out the seams between the 4 sheets of paper that I drew it on. I also touched up the black area in the upper left corner. The original image is about 22×48 inches. Below is an image of the raw scan.


The Greater Temple

Recently completed ink illustration for a Goodman Games’ publication. This will be reproduced in gray scale, so the blue and magenta will eventually be rendered as shades of gray.


KRAMPUS!


work in progress

I recently noticed that I have not posted anything here for weeks – so here are some of my recent drawings. I’ve been experimenting with combining tone and cross hatching/line techniques.


Twitch Session for Goodman

This morning I did a Twitch session for Goodman Games where I draw on camera and people can post questions/reactions on Twitch. Below is a more finished version.

ink drawing - treasure hunters

Warning – audio is kind of crap at the beginning but we fixed audio a few minutes in by switching headphones/microphones.


Beast men attack knights

Final version with graphite and china white added.
Earlier stage – photographed on my drawing table. This is earlier stage – most of what you see is the pen line work.
Mid stage – I’ve started going in with colored ink washes (in this photo they look grey but in the original they are a green color). This is about midway between the “line only” stage and the final version (top).


Hive Wizard

New Illustration for an upcoming publication. Worm wizard wants his insect minions to gather the children for nefarious purposes.


Sticker Contest

Above is a drawing for the Goodman Games Sticker Contest. The Necrostruthian Deathknight (pictured above) does not allow peasants to mock his under-developed legs. “True knights do not walk – they ride!”
