I just wrapped up this artwork for Ray Barnholdt’s Scroll magazine. It turned out well, even though every time I sit down to color a new piece I instantly forget how to do it and have to relearn everything. I really need to sit down with some smaller pieces and get a better grip on what my color style is. I’ll probably have prints up in my shop soon.
1. I started this site with a bunch of Mario mashups like this, this, and this. They were initially created as quick photoshop coloring and texturing exercises. Here’s a new one I’m working on celebrating Starcraft, beer, and weird frog-lizard kings.
2. I was recently asked to make some art revolving around Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest. Being a 16bit era Square fan myself, I’m not too familiar with the series so I had to ask YouTube for help. I was immediately struck by the visual design of the small dungeon grid so I’m using that as a starting point for the piece.
I should finished inks sometime soon, and then it’s on to colorin’s.
