This is a preview of a character from a short comic I did a while ago for the 24 Hour Comic Challenge. In the comic, the world has been overtaken by an outbreak that turns humans into Werewolf type creatures, and every scratch or bite can lead to ones inevitable turning. I decided to reopen the files and whip this together. I hope to rework and finish the comic sometime soon.
At the request of my sister, I did a quick illustration for the Eragon “Inheritance” art contest. Never can pass up the opportunity to draw a dragon.

Felt like mixing it up a bit again and doing a more exotic character portrait. This mysterious foreign beauty, clad in luxurious gold and tulle, entices her viewer with her alluring gaze and mystifying performance. I’ll let your imagination figure out the rest.
Since my last piece I put up here was kinda dark, I decided I’d make something on the opposite side of the scale. Endearing led the conceptual development of this piece, quite different from the previous “Sinister”. In this, a young girl and her father spend the night star gazing. We don’t know who they are or what their lives might be like. All we know it that for a while, the two of them share the sky.

Today’s post is much more grim than my usual postings and not for the faint of heart. This illustration highlights one of my darker characters named Jean Claude, a man who works as an “Extractor”; a polite way to say he uses interrogation techniques that are not exactly humane. Jean Claude combines physical pain and psychological insight in his methods, digging deep (sometimes literally) to find the answers he’s been hired to retrieve. In this setting, Jean Claude is working over a high-ranking member of a criminal organization, trying to find information on a missing child. The man, as Jean Claude’s research concludes, has had a fear of mirrors/broken glass since he was a child, a fact that is used against the man. Jean Claude’s story is an intense psychological thriller that features espionage, conspiracy and and examination of the value of human life. Sinister is the word that inspired this piece, and it’s certainly fitting.
