A possible comission!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 26, 2009 by Davie

Exciting news!  Jake Richmond has informed me of a man who has created his own pen-and-paper RPG and wants the rulebook illustrated.  He attempted to illustrate it himself, but with vicious frankness, he clearly stopped paying attention in his middle school art class.  So…he’s looking for someone to make some pretty pictures for him.  Jake knows the guy, and recommended me!  Whoo!  I need to send him a portfolio of my best work before he’ll consider me, but things are looking likely at this point.  I’m also working on a couple drawings for the portfolio specifically.  Further developments shall likely follow.

Bad Ass

Posted in Black and White Drawings, Hand-drawn stuff on October 14, 2009 by Davie

Here’s another drawing.  This’ll be the last for a little while, as I have to scan a new batch of stuff and my scanner is a notorious pain in the ass.

I essentially tried to come up with the most badass character possible, hence the combination of trenchcoat and power armor, the revolving rifle, the scimitar, the beard stubble, etc.   This was sliiiightly inspired by Borderlands, which is going to be amazing.

Hmm…my only real issue with this one is that his face is kinda lopsided and ugly.  I think it could’ve been better.

Jake Richmond pointed out that the shoulder pauldrons are far too restrictive.  He's absolutely right, but the Rule of Cool is quite prevalent in this one.

Angry Man With Big Sword

Ah, here we are.  This is one of my favorites.  I fell like I managed a level of detail I can rarely pull together.  Eventually I’ll color it, and it’ll look super awesome.

If I ever do a comic with this guy, he’ll be the brother of that other woman in armor I drew a few months ago on my old blog.  They’ll be mercenary captains or some such.

Hello! And Hello Again!

Hello, WordPress readers!  And hello again, my incredibly small reader base from Blogger!  I am continuing my blog Graphical Inundation on this site–I’m sick of Blogger’s bullcrap errors.  Hopefully WordPress here will treat me better.  What good is an art blog if I can’t upload images?  Anyhow, here I am.  All new posts will now be on this site, and I hope to eventually archive all my old posts here as well, for reading convenience.  I’ll try to put some stuff up later today.  Until then!

Space Chicken and Fanatic Mechanic

So, for my first real post in a new location, here are a couple of drawings I’ve done recently.  Hooray for Warhammer 40k and all its GRIMDARK!

Hey, a caption!  We've got us a Kroot, the most badass alien in the 40k universe.  At least, in my opinion.

An Imperial Techpriest of the Adeptus Mechanicus.  These guys have a tendency to be ludicrously dogmatic and protective of machines.  It's probably all the robot bits.
