New Star Wars Art

Here are some illustrations of mine that were recently released by Fantasy Flight Games.

This first illustration was created for 'Star Wars - Edge of the Empire: Game Master's Kit' RPG book. The character is a space miner named 'Marv Moray'.  I've included the initial pencil drawing I sent to the art director, Zoe Robinson, before moving onto the final.

The remaining illustrations were created 'Star Wars: Edge of Darkness Expansion' LCG. My art director for these illustrations was Mike Linnemann. Once again I've included my sketches, in this case they are simple thumbnail sketches.

Dragon Drawing Class

I recently taught a class called 'Drawing Fantastical Dragons' for kids at the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Center. It was a lot of fun!

My students followed along as I gave demonstrations on how to draw a wide variety of dragons. Our focus was to have fun, but I also implemented some tips on form, anatomy, perspective, and shape design.  At the end of our classes we sometimes did these collaborative drawings where each student gets takes a turn to add a little piece of a dragon.  I've included some photos of those collaborative drawings.

I plan on teaching more classes at Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Center in the Winter/Spring semesters of 2014.

Skull/Light Study

The other night I took a bunch of photographs with different lighting situations on the same figure. This is a painted study of one of those photographs.
