Wedding commission

A few weeks ago I received an email from a fan of White Wolf's original Changeling the Dreaming RPG asking if I had any original art from my time as an artist on that series that I would be willing to sell to her as a gift to her fiancé as a wedding present. I was pretty touched that A.) someone would want to give my art to anyone as a gift, and that B.) by art would be part of two people's special union. (Full disclosure, I was not her first choice but luckily for me Rebecca Guay was too expensive) I was so touched in fact that I offered to create for her a completely new original painting in the style of my old black and white interior art for Changeling the Dreaming to use as a gift instead. She agreed and I got to work. Below are some work in progress shots along with the finished painting.






It is a shot of both of their characters engaged in a scene she described for me from their campaign. The finished piece is water color, gauche and acrylic on watercolor paper. It has been years since I painted anything like this and this was a really special and touching project to get to work on.

I am posting it today because today is the date of their wedding. 

Congratulations Teresa and Cavan!
I hope you live happily ever after

Lady DeathRack!

So Monday master cartoonist John Kovalic created this DORK TOWER comic about women and how they relate and are depicted in comics. It is a great comic and I think you all should take a moment to read it if you haven't already. Here is the link…  http://www.dorktower.com/2014/02/24/9282/

I'll wait.

Back?

Good.

Now that you have some reference I was inspired to create my own version of Lady Deathrack. Since I figured I couldn't ironically draw any exploitative image of the heroine that hasn't already been made and released on the internet with complete pigheaded sincerity I went in a… different direction.

Retweet Reward: Bot Bros

Sometimes I hold a contest for anyone that shares my Sidekick Quests webcomic. The winner gets to tell me to draw something and I draw it. I call it Retweet Rewards. This is one of them.


Josh Hughes (@Atomicterrier on Twitter) is the creator of the very clever and equally cute webcomic Bot Bros about two robot brothers exploring a classic fantasy world. Josh asked me to draw the main characters from Bot Bros. So that is what I did.

Minki Kim (@Froncentrate on Twitter) is the writer of the really amazing webcomic CottonTale. Minki asked me to draw the main character from CottonTale; Cecile, with her mount. So that is what I did.
