Moonlight munching.

With book 3 off at the printers it was time to get back to a bit of Friday painting. One image that I have always loved is Larry Elmore's Dragonlance painting that shows the main characters around a camp fire. Could only dream of getting to Mr Elmore's level, the guy is an absolute legend, but thought I would do something in the same veign. It's been a while since I cracked out the old wacom for some colour work having been on book 3 for the last seven months or so, but twas great getting back in to it :)

Beast Hunting Battle Badgers issue 3, cover creation.

Step 1: Laying down the base colour scheme and position of the beasty.
 Step 2: Putting in a rough position for the heroes, and some props on the deck.
 Step 3: Working into the beast, resizing it for more impact. Also working into the characters.
 Step 4: Adding Flint into the background, and hint at other claw.
 Step 5: With main elements in place, time to tighten up and add some more props and details to the deck of the ship.
 Step 6: Something about the composition and positioning seemed off balance so flipping the image allowed me to pin down what needed to be resized and repositioned.
 Step 7: With everything working together am now just tightening and making sure the thing I want to pop will pop, and those I want to recede are receding.
Step 8: Finishing touches and sea foam spray and it's pretty much done :)

True believers 2017 table sketchingtons.

Once again it was time to head up the motorway to the True Believers con in Cheltenham. It was a great con that seems to grow each year. A huge thanks to anyone who stopped by my table for a bit of Badger based banter.

Just in time for the New Year :)

Have been working on this pic of the Brocken for a while, just picking away at it now and again as a break from other pieces I've been working on. Finally got it finished a week or so ago, just in time for it to be my New years pic for the blog :)
