made a quick animated GIF of a 2 session life painting. When this one dries I'll make proper scans of these studies and post em.

Here's a cover I did a while back, that I can finally show. For Philip Reeve's GOBLINS, published by Scholastic. When I come up for air, I'll try to post some sketches  for this. Take care-S.

return to life drawing

It's been over a year since I attended life drawing. I hope to make this a regular thing- at least once a month. This session mostly consisted of short poses ranging from 1 min - a 20 min at the end. I felt a little rusty but mid class I started to warm up. Then I got really tired....cause I'm getting old.

Thanks for checking in -S.

Storm Entry

Hope everyone who got hit with Sandy managed okay and is doing well now.

Just going to post a few random things that have been sitting around the HD. I tend to get either too busy or distracted (or lazy) and forget to post all the little doodles and scribblings I do on a daily basis. These don't include all the other traditional media scribbles I tend to do ...and am too lazy to scan. I'll try to be better about this in 2013. Gotta get it together already.

today's Sunday sketch session

just a quickie

This next batch of sketches were done using ProCreate- my favorite sketching app for the iPad. Going to look into getting  a pressure-sensitive stylus soon. 

Did this interior b/w art for ABDO / Magic Wagon Pub. using ProCreate as well.

These are some screenshots when I was tinkering with 3D a bit more. I haven't had a chance to pursue it lately, but I'm itching to get back into it...learn more and improve. It's pretty fun. Top image is Sculptris while the others are Zbrush.

Lastly, every now and then I get a moment to tinker with some noise making. Feel free to DL at will if you like :

Be well everyone- S.

new World of Warcraft TCG card art

Just saw this card was released for Blizzard's World of Warcraft TCG. Nothing like a magical hammer right to the bread-basket. Uhhhh

Adventures in Extreme Reading : Book #2

This is the second book in the new series by Jan Fields, and published by ABDO / Magic Wagon.
I had hoped to do a mini-interview with Jan for this post, but time has been quite limited. Hopefully next cover post I can get it done. Thanks for checking folks -S.

From the Archives -a Hobbit

I was digging through the HD this evening and came across this image which I believe may be over 2 years old now. Quarto / Quintet Publishing had asked me to do an instructional for their book, so I have some of the steps saved. At the time they had planned for the instructional to coincide with the new Peter Jackson The Hobbit movies , but with all the director switches and  delays the book was completed much earlier.

Nothing too fancy here - I think I was definitely influenced by the skin tones of Haddon Sundblom , while creating this little guy.
Okay - hopefully next post I'll have something a bit more recent. Thanks for checking in -S.
