This project was a bit of a change of pace for me- providing an illustration of Magnolia flowers for a book. Pen & ink on Bristol board with digital watercolor added in Painter Essentials 5.
Work continues on the fifth print issue of Night Craft, my horror/science-fiction/anything else short story anthology series. This issue is kind of a fairy tale. In space. Below is a page and some of the stages that led to it…
This started out as a pen & ink sketch for a larger drawing. Instead of redrawing it I decided to experiment and add color to the sketch drawing, this is the result. Let me know what you think of it!
While I’m currently mostly focused on a couple of comic projects, as well as the ‘Night Craft’ series, I have done some drawings too. The first three still need ink and/or color, but I thought they are ready to show at this stage.
The first two are going to be header images to make this site a little more interesting. The third drawing is just a reflection of my love of giant robots and the post-apocalyptic setting. So why not merge the two? Yes, I grew up on anime and movies from Full Moon studios… The image of the pier was drawn for my sister’s wedding invitation.
Also, it may be a little too early to start teasing this, but I’m hoping to have a big ‘Night Craft’ announcement sometime in the near future…
