Snow Day 3.2.09
Found a bunch of images I did that seemed to have been released lately, and felt it would be cool to share and get some thoughts. I might not say it enough, but critiques are always welcome. Feel I really need to step it up lately - getting a bit too comfortable if that makes any sense. The gears are turning though, and I'm looking forward to improving.
This is a cover for a guitar sticker book I did for Dover Publishing. As someone who likes to make noise with guitars, this was a cool project. digital on computer :)
This was my first wrap-around book cover, done for Random House / Golden Books for Young Readers. It's a really fun book that definitely has appeal for multiple age groups. I don't think I've ever done an illustration without a figure , so this was a challenge. Check out the author's site here : Chris Grabenstein
Another World of Warcraft card that got released. A little dwarf dude trying to get his mits on a fat mushroom. Kinda trippy, eh? UpperDeck Entertainment / Blizzard Entertainment (da Blizz)
Here's a study/ experiment for something more personal. The plan was to eventually take this to traditional oils. Not pleased with the lighting at all. I think I might go with something along the lines of Zorn's double side lighting. Just not feeling where this is going , so I may just drop it. I'll give it a bit more push and see where it goes.
Thanks again everyone- scott
