Thanks everyone :)

Mori - In comic art speak, that's a color hold. I'm glad you like my work :)

BLZeebub - ToH.. it's not ringing bells. Either way, happy to hear you dig my art. I'm still getting a handle with sculpting in GS/Putty and have done a bit in 3d too.

Xherman - Thank you!

The non-NDA miniatures I worked on were a few for Chapterhouse and a dropship from a Sci-Fi KS. I have been and am involved in a few other things but details aren't available on those.

It is exceedingly hard to find work doing any one type of art I've found, so I've tried to keep a handle on different media. I'm hoping work will pick up so I can get a 3d printer eventually.

 

Here's some more

So I've neglected this thread a while...

BUT

There's a good reason! I've been working on stuff that I can't show. My current project is for Assault Publishing, who has tasked me with illustrating their entire rulebook! I'm about halfway through that project now and will roll right into another project for a new British company in the following months. Phew.. that's a lot!

 

In my free time I've been doing studies and I was participating in an ongoing league of artists that do monthly competitions. That got the axe but has recently been revitalized. So for my first match, I got to pick our topic, which is adventurers.

 

I came up with some ideas and had quite a few sketches. I narrowed it down to my favorites and thought, what better place to ask opinions on this than one of the most prominent fantasy communities? So here it is.

 

These are 3 sketches that I am considering turning into finalized illustrations. Please sound off on which one you think should get the full treatment!

 

1) Sewer Rats

2) The Archive

3) A disarming situation

I'll check back Monday when I will start work on whichever piece gets the most attention between this site and other places. Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much for sounding off guys. Between here and the place where the competition is, I've gotten feedback that tells me the sewer piece is going to be it.

Now.. not to say the others won't be developed ever, but for this contest, I'm definitely going to be moving forward with that one.  Secretly, I wanted to paint the disarming situation.. but hey..this one is turning out pretty fun :D

 

So.. words words words.. where's teh picturez!?!?! (right?)

 

Here's the tighter line art.

The final will be larger, but for now I'm happy with the read it gets at this size. Thanks for looking!

      Once again, the pen ink calls, inviting one and all to participate.
       
      That's right, it's Inktober time, and the prompts are flying thick and furious.
       
      Lessee; I've got seven prompt lists handy, and if anyone's got more, feel free to post 'em.



       
       
       ... I got two of these from Twitter, the rest from either googling or following links. 
       
      The general rule from the Official Prompt List is 'pen and ink, one drawing a day', but I am certainly not holding anybody to that if they don't feel like they can do it.
      I also bravely ignore the 'pen and ink' rule, but I don't necessarily suggest my slapdash 'pick something from a list and go after it with whatever media amuses me' method, either...

      If you would like to just get two of the three books, the best way to do so is to pledge for one of the books, then increase your pledge total to include the Add-on price for the second book below. 
       
      We will be using BackerKit as our pledge manager and that's where you'll have the opportunity to make those specific choices. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments or by messaging me here on Kickstarter.
       
      THE ART OF…
      For more than 30 years I have spent a great deal of time talking with hundreds of artists who paint miniatures – for fun, for a living, for relaxation – and I am always intrigued to learn more about their philosophies, approaches, and processes. Some of these artists have spent decades refining their technical skills, while others bring their “traditional” art training to the miniatures world. Some draw inspiration from the most unusual of places, while others find it in popular culture turned on its head.
       
      THE ART OF… series of books will highlight fantastic miniatures artists from around the world, bringing their thoughts and passions to stand alongside their magnificent and inspirational work. We’ll be featuring both individuals and groups in this series, as we explore innovative approaches, studied refinements, and even tangential influences.
      These books will be both a celebration of the artist and their art, as well as an opportunity for them to present their thoughts on particular topics and let the world know why they approach their art the way they do. These will not be “How To” books, but rather complements to their existing outlets work that the artists are already doing.
      This is just the beginning of THE ART OF… series. With so many wonderful miniatures artists, there is so much potential to explore.
       
      Volume 1 – THE ART OF... Miniature Monthly
      Miniature Monthly is a collective of three professional painters from the US – Aaron Lovejoy, Elizabeth Beckley, and Matt DiPietro – who have a Patreon (Miniature Monthly) producing painting tutorial videos. All three are (or have been) studio painters for a number of different companies and they each bring something different to the table. This book will be a high-quality, softback artbook of 128 pages.
      Aaron will cover:
      • Creating a team/collective – looking at The Painters’ Guild and Miniature Monthly
      • Striking a balance between Speed and High-end painting
      • Freehand – Adding depth and texture
      Elizabeth will cover:
      • Smooth Skin – featuring work on the Kingdom Death minis
      • Chibi Art – how painting chibis differs from “standard” miniatures
      Matt will cover:

      • The Black Phalanx – a kitbashed project

      Volume 3 – THE ART OF... Ana Polanšćak

      If you think combining Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The Matrix into a comic book sounds pretty cool, then check out our Kickstarter campaign for Chronicles of the Immortal Swordsmen.
