Character Illustrations for Free Gears RPG

TTandT Steampunk Illustration

A very creative and talented friend of mine, Chris Rothove, has put several years of hard, devoted work into a table-top RPG titled “Free Gears”. After so much time and effort, he’s finally on the track for finalizing his project and calling for commissions/illustrations from associates to help make his book one of kind.

I was, very fortunately, contacted with several requests. This image is the one I’ve completed to date, featuring the twins in my webcomic, Tricks, Twins & Thieves, to help show the versatility of one of the classes in his book. It’s been a very fun and exciting project, and I look forward to doing more work for it, as well as experiencing the finished product some day!

… Oh, and play-testing it. That there will be most fun indeed! 😀

Elmwood Cemetery Finally Scanned!

Elmwood Cemetery Portrait

The best part about this new, wide-format scanner of mine is that I can go back and scan in all the pieces I wasn’t able to on my own time! This pretty baby here– literally– is one of them. I completed this sometime several years ago no for a celebration happening out at Elmwood Cemetery. Several students, myself among them, were given the opportunity to participate in an on-site portrait of someone buried there. They had to be finished on-site, so contributors and beneficiaries could walk around and experience them as well.

While most students had an actual person and history to explain as visitors dropped by to see what they were doing, I was challenged with a commemorative piece dedicated to all the children/babies buried in the cemetery without names or real markings– still borns and children lost early on to diseases and things.

I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and would jump at the chance to do it again 🙂

Into Darkness with a Work in Progress

I was right to be super excited about this assignment I set up for myself! It’s been a rocky road thus far, after taking several pages of thumbnailing before finally setting on two designs for my Star Trek: Into Darkness Poster Set. Once I’ve finished Jim Kirk, it’ll be time to play around with some charcoal and texture before assembling and coloring the 24″ x 36″ poster. I haven’t started on the “Enlist” poster yet, but I have the idea down so it’s time to start once this one is to a comfortable spot. Both need to be finished by Friday, so I’m working as hard as I can! It doesn’t look like I’ll have the popcorn bucket and cup done and ready for display by the show date, but I’ll work on them for the end of year– for myself if no one else.

I’ve also got tickets to see the premier of the show two days before the actual release date, so I’m just about as excited as possible!

Enjoy the little picture of me tiredly enjoying myself!

Guess it’s time to get back to work now! Graduation is creeping up so fast.
