For Zack Shapiro

I love you baby.

Doug you're next.

So Sad

So this was rejected by the card game I'm working for because it doesn't quit fit into the games' logic, which is too bad because it was fun while I was working on it. Luckily it was only an hour and half of work so I don't feel too bad. Besides nothing to stop me from continuing to work on it, or to push them to use it for a future project. Probably about 45-50% of the way into it.

Conquest Tactics: Berserker

Working up the next card for Conquest Tactics. Basically it's a massive anthropomorphic rhino crashing his way through a phalanx of human soldiers (or it will be).

Look at that, two posts in one day.

The Rift Book 2 cover, color rough

Working on the second book in the series Rob Duperre and I are working on. Here is the color rough for the cover. Need to take some refs so I can start building up the finished drawing and start painting. I'm still on the fence whether or not I'll do this digitally like the last cover or go traditional with oils. I have a feeling it'll be a bit of both.

We are down in N.J. for a wedding this weekend so I put the Rift stuff on hold until we get back home (can't haul my whole oil setup everywhere). I figured I'd use the travel time in the car to work on a few more Conquest Tactics cards since I can do those digitally.

I'm about 65% into this one. Having a good time playing around with texture and I fell in love with the wet edge option for my brushes.

Sketching Up Something Dead for the next Rift Book.

Started working up some paint sketches for the next Rift book (which we should have out in December). Figured I'd share it.

God I love the smell of oils in the morning.
