30 day RPG challenge - Week 1

Was inspired by Rudy Siswanto who started this topic along with some friends, to give a go at this challenge of drawing an RPG themed element daily. Trying to keep them as part of the same world, although the focus is to kind of do the first thing that comes to mind regarding each theme. I should say that they are all fairly quick.

1 - Me as main character - Spear, of course.
2 - Villain - There always has to be a reason for a mask!
3 - Ranged sidekick - Adventurous elf lady
4 - Transport - Basically the story is me chilling with an elf lady in a flying jellyfish.
5 -Weak enemy - Realised later that wood isn't the weakest of things, but still. Slow. LOW HP.
6 -Tavern - Not alot of experience with interior design. Learning.
7 - Dungeon Gate - Snake Lord awaits below.
Oh well, seems like I went a bit dark with both enviros. This could be turning into some SRS stuff. Like, early-death-of-the-main-character-serious. But nah, anyway, hope you dig! Thanks for checking. Feel free to give it a try. We have the themes set for the first 2 weeks!

Sketchy shady stuff. Most dubious.


Long time, no illu! Here's something that will be used partly as a book cover for Sovereignty of Radiance by author Eric Allen Brown. Some designs provided by client. Had some difficulty with getting both the building and the char into frame, but still obtain some depth. Thanks to Alex Negrea and Alexandrescu Paul for some helpful tips regarding that!

 A value exercise where you stick to about 3-4 values, and you kinda compress the reference's array of values to that. Cheated here and there with smudge and such. We got Don Derpherp in there!
Back to color, and som-a-dem ladiiiieeeessss!

A sketchy one

 Happy 2014!.. heh..

So, this is the reason why I didn't post any illustrations in a while. It's my last card done for At least until the game launches and they may or may not need to expand it. I want to say for short that I had a great collaboration with them and I wish the best to the team and the project, as well as Alexander Nanitchkov , the Giver of Cards!

I also have to mention that the naga designs are based of an illustration belonging to Alejandro Mirabal done for the same project. And as always, I took some inspiration from our lord and saviour Brad Rigney !

Another Bleach Fan-Art, this time Rudobone!

 There's a Diablo 3 contest on Deviant. Started some stuff but it's almost over. Might finish them later.

 Some creepy creepster sketch.
 Some fighters of the streets. From memory.

Study time! 2 fairly quick ones after Michael Komarck!

 4 fairly quick ones after llllllllladies!

 I'm 12 and wat is dis

A rendition of the Nolife (recently Somelife) Kripparrian, after I've seen some pic of him where he looked especially square.  You can see his hardcore (recently casual) gaming action here

My second fairy for SpellweaverTCG. Was fun to do and got some good feedback by both client and some artist friends! You can see some process shots here!

Here's a comission for Nate J Adam as promo for his upcoming novel "The Towers of Truth''. The composition is off center because it was made as a backdrop for a site. 

Have you heard of Daily Spitpaint? Of course you have, but let me finish! It's a Facebook group where every day a few themes are posted by the admins and the members can pick from there and do 30 minute related speedpaintings. It's a nice group to at least follow since it gathered a good number of inspirational professionals who post and kick ass. Here's a few of mine.

Here's a sketch that I'm going to adress later featuring my favourite Playstation game. Crash Team Racing!

And hey, I felt bad for abandoning traditional painting for such a long time, and I also felt the need to extend my capabilities a bit so I did some gouache portraits. Starting monochrome. Painted some kewl dudes. Too afraid to try the gracious female form yet haha.

But i did try the gracious female form in digital. I have actually done some experiments in loosening up and trying some painterly approaches, less layers and all that. These are all fairly quick. 1-2-3 hours each.

 dudes too And Vampy up there! ^

 And my friend Malvina. All hail.
