Kaborha Maquette

Maquette for the Kaborha which will show up in the Bersker Tier 3 card I am going to be working on. It's nice having a tiny hand like Simona's there to hold the head, it's not nearly as intrusive as my own meat-beater.

So I'll post the sketch for this when I feel it fits the thumbnails I've done for the card. I will certainly post a few of the sketches I've done directly from the maquette. Of course, the hard work of taking the thumbnail to a working full-size image takes place. I HATE that part. Making a thumbnail work as a full-size image is painful and at times tedious. Things are most interesting when I'm working off the cuff, or the actual thumbnails themselves. It's so intuitive and satisfying. I could easily reside in the realm of individuals who just create their work by riffing on a subject, but I find that my best work isn't done that way.

Go figure.

Ugly Female Wraith Maquette

Second maquette for the book illustrations. Need to find some crappy nylon for hair. Going to do a few more for the book tomorrow, but next up is one for the Conquest Tactics card game.
