CHOW 162 - The Bogeyman

My idea for the bogeyman was a crazy old man that haunted kids for their eyes. Looking for the perfect match to replace his missing eye. He is also infested with bugs, being a dirty old man.

Geist: The Sin-Eaters Preview

I recently finished 4 illustrations for an upcoming World of Darkness book called Geist: The Sin-Eaters coming out in August. One of my pieces got used in a marketing contest where people can make flash videos out of some of the art from the book. One of my pieces was used for the contest so I can show it now.

Anime Sketches.

I have been doing freelance work for White Wolf for over 2 years I think. All the work I have done for them has been vampires or some sort of horror. Yesterday I wrote to the AD I always work with asking if the AD in charge of Exalted, another RPG White Wolf makes, but this one is more cartoony/anime like. Now I haven't drawn anime in years, I used to draw it all the time in high school and college, though I wasnt very good at it then. So I did these sample sketches. First sketch I just finished, and the 2nd I did yesterday for warm up, a copy from Satoshi Urushihara. As I was writing this, I just got emailed back to do some interior work. Damn that was fast. Anyways the point I was trying to make with this post for younger artists, if there is anyone out there that actually reads my blog, is that it is always a good idea to do sample pieces if there is a certain company that you want to work for that does specific work but your portfolio doesnt represent that style or genre. I am working on a sample piece for Warmachine, I think their stuff looks fun and I want to illustrate for them. I plan on finishing this piece before I send them my work to show that I can draw and paint their characters.
