Here’s some art I did for a retro sci-fi indie video game called Jet Johnson. Unfortunately, the pandemic seemed to knock it off course and it was never finished.
I was playing an old Castlevania game, and I got it in my head that it would be run to run an RPG scenario inspired by Castlevania. Got to thinking about the characters that would be involved, and came up with this guy, and his dysfunctional family. Don’t know if I’ll ever run that scenario, but I had a great time painting these characters!
Here’s another character from the D&D character concept generator http://www.whothefuckismydndcharacter.com. Finding ways to put the character concept into the art has been a fun challenge with these. Having been captured by cultists, this guy apparently got a hold of some of their weapons and robes, plus some bells and a bit of tree to aid in his escape!
A character inspired by the D&D character concept generator, http://www.whothefuckismydndcharacter.com. A Peaceful Dwarf Rogue From The Sealed City Who Was Petrified For Over Two Hundred Years. In the interest of getting more of that concept into the art, I went ahead and made him look like he’s still a bit petrified. Maybe when you’re petrified for over 200 years, you never quite go back to normal –how would I know?
Yet one more in my angels & demons series, figuring out this whole digital painting thing! A more brutish counterpart to the elegant devil from before. This guy came out the best yet, in my opinion. Some things about painting really started to click into place. Those chains were a lot of fun to do — I have a little trick for drawing chains that works with inking, so I wanted to see how it would work with a painted style — pretty well, it turns out! Still got a few more of these guys in the hopper.
A few years back I drew a bunch of angels and demons. Well, one angel and a bunch of demons, really. I kinda planned to make it all into a comic, but it never really went anywhere.
