A penultimate dump of figures

Here's another batch of figure drawings. I still have a few more to photograph, but these are the bulk from the final weeks of class.















The above is a caricature of yours truly by the awesome Ricardo de los Angeles.



We made some plaster face masks in class. It was fun, and provided a good humorous photo op!








I consider the above to be my most successful figure drawing yet.



Quicky self portrait above. The lighting and angle of the head make it look like the pretentiously dramatic profile picture of some emo kid on MySpace, but that happened to be the most convenient way to look at both the mirror and the paper, since I drew this on a board on my lap without an easel.

RIP, Frazetta

Frank Frazetta, the greatest figure in the history of fantasy illustration, and one of the top illustrators ever, has passed away today. May his work and legacy be admired forever.

The Green Bastard, and a doodle.


So, here's the version of the Green Bastard that I'm calling the finished one. I wrote a backstory about him that I posted in my Deviantart gallery, here.


And here's just a goofy monster excited because he saw an ice cream truck.

Lovecraftian Cultists

Here are some illustrations I created for Kobold Quarterly 13, which was just released! These are members of the cults of various deities from Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. The first is a Knight of Dissolution, who worships Azathoth, the second is a female wizard of Yog-Sothoth, and the last is a priest of Nyarlathotep. These had to also function as possible player characters, so they couldn't be totally nasty and occult, which is why many of the Lovecraftian elements are somewhat subtle.

Fantastical Stuff

So, here are all my fantastical WIPs, concepts, doodles, and illustrations for the past few months. Because the way blogger inserts images into posts is stupid, these are actually in reverse chronological order, with the newest images at the top of the post and the oldest at the bottom.

Some weird, angry spirit characters for an illustration I'm planning. They're going to be swarming a thief who stole their treasure.

An update of one of my Team ChoW sketches from many months ago. Still a WIP.
A loose doodle of an entity I call the Deistic Tetramanous Convolucephalid.
Mushroom folk! These were very loose and fun.

An abstract, godlike entity that I just call the Earthborn. Part of a series of deities, both real and fictional, that I'm drawing.


The above is an environment for the same world as the Devil Sea image a few posts ago. I began by making a model in sketchup. This image is still a WIP, I think.



A transformed version of the Lost One, a character which I posted here some time ago. He's the player character for a mock game project of mine. The second image is supposed to be a transformation animation. If it doesn't work, check out my DeviantArt gallery for a version that does.


This is an environment for the same project as the above. Despite what you might assume, it was not inspired by either Avatar or by Roger Dean, nor did those works even particularly influence it. If anything, this was much more inspired by an old SNES game called Bahamut Lagoon.
The second image should be an animation of the various stages of progress for this image. I don't know if Blogger will let that work. If it doesn't animate, check out my DeviantArt gallery.
