Character Design in Progress

Here's a character design that I'm working on. Just a kid's story character. And I desperately need to get a hold of a new Scanner, because these photos just don't cut it. I hope you enjoy them.

Pegasus work in progress

This will eventually be painted in photoshop. I only lined it with marker because my scanner isn't working and my small camera doesn't take very good photos of pencil.

The Beast Tamer's Basilisk

I tried something a bit different than my normal approach for this illustration. Its of a Beast Tamer with his Basilisk on the leash and he's confronted by a Shishi (Guardian creature of Chinese temples) who shows its fangs.

Troll on a Rampage

I decided to change things up a little bit. Still working on the black and white for a bit. The Troll in this image is a bit angry to say the least. The scenery is inspired from my trip to Bali and the wonderful cultural structures they had, mostly religious ones. It is always an exciting time traveling to different parts of the world. I decided to add some marker in with the Graphite pencil to bring out the deep shadows.

Not Speed painting yet.

Ok, well this isn't exactly speed painting, but here is a 1 hour progress of a painting I've started at midnight. In school we always talked about such random but interesting topics. While talking with illustrators things can be very imaginative, which always made things fun. Well, one day while in class somebody said they were doing a troll riding on a dragon, and I randomly said, "Oh! You should make it a dragon riding on a Troll!" ... and my friend Dan Valvo (NAME DROP) said that he could really imagine that image and it looked hilarious. A small troll doubled over from the weight of a massive dragon. Well, this image is NOT that massive dragon, but its a first step to that story. So here we are, a Dragon riding on a troll... in progress.

I'm in progress of doing a painting of optimus. All ownership of the character are to Hasbro. I do not own this character.
