Little character commission I did recently for a Star Wars rpg. Star Wars characters are always fun to draw, it’s a very nostalgic aesthetic!
Another Curse of Strahd party commission! I think this is the fourth one I’ve done now? It’s evidently quite a popular module — I can probably draw that Castle Ravenloft in the background from memory by now! I actually played briefly in a Curse of Strahd campaign recently, until I had to drop out because of lack of time. Maybe one of these days… Anyway, this was a really fun piece to do! I love these posed “group photo” pieces — they’re always a lot of fun to compose. I also started to find a nice coloring process on this one that’s sort of a hybrid between cel-shaded, and fully-painted, which looks great, but is still efficient to do.
Here’s a huge illustration I had the opportunity to do recently for a D&D group to celebrate the ending of their two-year-long campaign. It features the whole party, their airship, the main villains, and a bunch of their favorite NPCs.
I got to try out a new coloring process on this one, using my newly-developed digital painting skills to bring more depth and variety to the rendering. I’m really pleased with how it came out.
My favorite detail about this piece is the Mindflayer head in a jar on the back of the evil wizard in the foreground. They sent me an update of their final sessions showing how that turned out, since I when I finished the piece, they still had a couple of sessions left. That Mindflayer head became a Mindflayer giant for the final battle, with a mini on the table that must’ve been a foot tall!
Here’s a really fun piece I had the opportunity to do recently — a t-shirt/logo design for a woman-owned electrician business, Amber Electric! Amber reached out to ask if I ever did Ed Roth-style Hot Rod art. I told her I never had, exactly, but that I was familiar with his work, and would love to take a shot at it. Here’s what we came up with!
Here’s a book cover I drew for a book called A Thousand Faces of Adventure, A Role Playing Game inspired by Joseph Campbell’s studies on the Hero’s Journey.
Here are some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu characters I was fortunate to have the opportunity to design for Heroes Martial Arts in San Jose, CA! My own experience in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gave me a leg up here.
