Six Gun Requiem

A couple weeks ago I got hired by the talented Gabriel Cassata to work as the artist on his vampire comic, Six Gun Requiem. It's a fun script with a lot of cinematic elements and I think my heavy blacks and gritty textures compliment the great writing. Anyways, Gabriel gave me the go head to post some pages. These are the 4 pages I've done this past week. I'll post again when I get more done.

Busy . . .

Been busy this week. Started on a new comic for a client called "Six Gun Requiem" which has been fun so far. I'm 3 pages penciled and inked, should have another 1-2 done by Friday night. I'll see about posting samples here.

Also working on some figures for another client. Lots of war mechs it seems, and going a lot better then I would expect from myself.

I also have some upcoming work involving creature designs and am finishing up a bunch of monsters/robots/aliens for an App Rocky and I are creating. Lots of fun.

Art Order- Assassin Devil

So, Jon Schindehette (D&D Senior AD) has a new challenge set up over at his blog: to do a redesign of a creature from the 4th Edition Monster Manual II, just based off the illo description, not the actual image used. Anyways, above is my initial sketch of the creature. It's just a rough concept at this point, but it gave me a lot of key ideas I wanted to explore with the design.

- The armor needs to have a demonic anatomical look to it, I want to push this more and not do the typical horns/spikes and skulls. I'd rather do shapes that look like bones and muscles. . . but metal.

- I think I'm also going to reference some Indonesian designs for the character, but in a different direction then the D&D Devas have gone.

- I'm going to look at more Wayne Reynolds work for inspiration. He has a way of adding detail and layers to a costume that makes it feel "real" and I want to start capturing that type of feel. I think it brings a sense of realism to the characters and what the represent.

So, that's about it for now. I have a lot of cool ideas and I just need to get them worked out and revised.

Robotika 2

So, found some time to do another character for Alex Sheikman's Robotika. This is Cherokee Geisha, cool character, cool concept. I played a bit more with the clothes designs then I did with Niko. Anyways, I still got Bronski to do, hopefully I'll have time before some scheduled work starts pouring in.

Alex Sheikman does a wonderful comic called Robotika. I have the first graphic novel, which I enjoy both as a cool story and setting, and for it's stylistic art. I've wanted to do some fan art of these characters for awhile, just never had the time. Anyways, did this tonight as a sort of warm-up for myself. It was fun, and I might tackle some other characters.

You can check out Robotika updates and what other things Alex is working on at his blog:
