Finished Faust inks

Soon the colors will be in at which point I will drop in the text and send them out.

New day. New header.

Seems about time to change things up a bit, so it felt like a good time to make a new header. There's some internal back and forth on these two options at the moment and it seems likely that I may just do a fully custom header instead of using snippets from recent work. But this should do for now.

More Faust previews

Vacation was great and now I'm back and almost finished with the inks for FAUST! Then it's back to work on my favorite project as well as trying to get some stuff ready for FALLCON. Yeehaw!

A Brief Hiatus

Friday marks the first day of a vacation long past due, so there won't be anything new here for the next week or so. On the up side, I'll be working on a whole mess of stuff as soon as I get back so no worries. Until then, here are some pics of a current project to tide you over.

Finished Hellboy... I think.

I ended up really liking the texture. So I made some tweaks to a number of spots I missed and then added some shifting color to the water to give it a bit of form. Last i cropped the image down to get rid of the messy edge spots, bumped the canvas size back to 11X17, and dropped a small outline around the image. This should be it barring any weird color issues I may not be able to see.

More colors for Hellboy

Despite a looming deadline, I felt the need to work on this a bit today. Still unsure of how to work the water ( or even wether or not I should ) since the original plan was for simple flat colors. If I detail it too much ( at all? ) the swirly graphic elements won't make sense and if I leave it flat it may not match the rest of the piece. This is where I'm at:

Now normally this is close to where I stop, but I had a notion and started playing around with various ways of adding textures which lead to this:

And soon after this:

Not sure how I feel about it and am now considering the final output. Time will tell.
