"Abode" Project

Abode final
The final for a recent Illustration project. The idea is to do a sort of architectural vignette - so I went for the promise and reality of communism as my subject matter.
Here's one of the earlier roughs.

Alternate Past, Future, Present...

Big Crest
My friend Nemo Ramjet's been busy lately - drawing some very cool stuff. Here's a quick acrylic painting of one of his crazier (and more awesome) ideas - a giant, intelligent, australian flightless parrot. You can see that idea, and more, at his deviantart gallery.

Ingmar and Utgartha

For my figure illustration class, one of the large assignments this semester has been illustrating a children's story. For my story, I went for David and Goliath, except setting it in a kind of mythical Bronze-age Northern Europe. Here's what I've got so far:

Scene 1: Utgartha Challenges the Livonians
Ingmar and Utgartha Scene 1

Scene 2: Ingmar refuses King Berig's Armor
Ingmar and Utgartha - Scene 2

Scene 3: Ingmar battles Utgartha
Ingmar & Utgartha - Scene 3

All in all, I've been having a lot of fun with this project. I'll be sad to see it go, honestly.
But next week - the cover!

Montage/Book Cover

Dead Lands final

A finished piece (for school) that was for a montage project. It's a comic cover!
(If you've read much late-seventies Conan, you may recognize that FONT-OF-STONE that I used.)

Here's two of the later-stage roughs for it.
