I haven't posted in ages! I have been hectic since November. Anyhow, I thought I would post a few bits and pieces. Some covers, some interiors.
Thanks for looking!
Great work. Love the first one. Reminds me of one of my favorite Vienna Secession era print artists, Carl Otto Czeschka.
Really enjoy the first and last two.
Lovely stuff, especially the first one.
Hey, your art is kinda sexy!
Thank you for looking at the work and taking the time to comment. Nathan, thanks for the pointer. I had a look at Carl Otto Czeschka and love his stuff!
Funny that the first image seemed to be the most enjoyed, as that was the only reject. It was initially for a cover for a series for Scholastic that we ended up taking a much different approach with. It was one of about 5 different rejected sketches. I took this and did it up for myself as I am loathe to waste decent sketches. Thanks!
Great Work Great Style
Especially The First
ahahah ok..i'm not the only...the first is my favorite...colors, composition and subjects are very cool : )
Beautiful work! I'll join in the love for the first image. Shame it was rejected, but mysterious are the ways of art directors...
Craig, I'm pleased to have introduced you to Carl Otto Czeschka. Glad you liked his stuff.
Nice work! I like the first image, as well, but I do have a comment about the sword. Holding any sharp blade like that, with all fingers and thumb/palm, would probably get one's hand sliced pretty badly, especially if walking around, and considering the blade is about the size of the character's torso, it's probably quite heavy, as well. I've used freshly sharpened knives that could shave the hair on my hand, and just pressing on such an edge can easily split the skin. Just a thought!
Good point! I originally had a few big drips of blood coming from his hand, but deleted it. Thanks for the note.
Aliciad, the client for that was an Australian publisher, Touchdown magazine I think.
