WIP: Bocephus & Delilah



This is a video game character I'm developing for my Styles and Concepts illustration course. The direction is being heavily inspired by Wes Burt's concept art for a new multi-platform game called "Ride to Hell" (Link).

Book Cover Illustration



Here's some of my process in creating a book cover illustration for my "Styles and Concepts" class. The face was inspired by the late actor Henry Irving who was supposedly Bram Stoker's primary inspiration behind Dracula's appearance.




Almost went realistic. In the end, I decided to head towards a more caricature-like direction as I did in the beginning.






The final was illustrated in acrylics and colored pencil, then Photoshopped to hide some massive heaps of matt medium. Please excuse the non-vector text on this promo version...

Revised Goblin



I made a lot of changes to my "life-sized" goblin bust in order to give it a more organic/natural feel.

Playing Card Designs

This is part of small set of fantasy art inspired playing card designs for my electronic illustration class.







The last image was a result of the brainstorming sketches for a possible Joker card. The king and queen were pen and ink drawings scanned into Painter and Photoshop.
