I came across this old work that I hadn’t thought about in forever. These are illustrations from 2008 that I was hired to do for a role playing game book. First work-for-hire work, first attempt at coloring my own stuff, first time using a brush even. Instead of being all OH GOD I’M EMBARRASSED, I’m looking at these and feeling good about where I’m at now. Buckling down, doing the work. Besides, I can see small parts of them that I still like, especially the last one.
It’s nice to be reminded of one’s progress sometimes, ya know?
I did this illustration for Malachi Ward’s Star Trek blog, for the TNG episode “Genesis”. In it, Lt. Barclay gets sick(I love any episode whose premise is “it’s Barclay’s fault”), and causes everyone on the Enterprise to devolve. Riker turns into a caveman, and Worf turns into a crustacean Predator beast who runs around the ship hunting Deanna Troi, who he bit and thinks is his mate(she’s also turning into a dolphin).
Couple of sketches of this kung fu character I was drawing a lot of. Inspired by a lot of Jademan comics, I was trying to nail down how I’d like to use speed lines as a foreground active element rather a background one.
