Artwork Description

Here's one I did about two months ago, for the upcoming "Game of thrones" CCG set called "A Crown of Suns". He's a little more exaggerated/elongated than the characters I usually draw, for a creepy, spidery effect. I thought it turned out OK, but the client especially liked it, so that's good!

What a creepy guy, the dramatic lighting casting this shadow is just fantastic.

Thanks as always, Kay! I sort of set up the challenge here of making a kind of "snapsot" of someone right in the middle of a motion, so I needed movement AND a sort of solidity. Glad you liked it!

What great movement Patrick. I agree on the stone work. Lighting again blows me away. Goodness Fantasy Flight is keeping you busy. Congrats.

It's my pleasure, Uwe. It's great to get to hear from fellow artists and art fans all the time, so it is the least I can do to try to respond!

Many thanks, Marley - this is one where the lighting was certainly an offshoot of the story. I was happy to pull it off OK!

Thanks! Here's the trick for the basic wall texture: http://www.creativemac.com/2003/06_jun/tutorials/psrumple030603.htm

It makes good stone as well as crumpled paper!

The stone work is what captures me on this one Patrick, it has such a quality realistic feel to me. And then of course is your wonderful lighting. Definately a nice one Smile

Glad you dig it, James. I was thinking of just that - the Karloff "Mummy" movie! I really like the sets in that one.

Ha, love that shadow effect, Patrick! the stone work is excellent, great dramatic scene kinda like a 1930's Boris Karloff movie!

Thank you, Mary - he really is a creepy looking guy! I like how his face came out sort of playfully-evil. He feels so good when he's bad...!

Hey, thanks Robert! Yeah, this one's all about the lighting, and the subtle colors in the shadows I thought. Glad you liked it!

Thanks, Leo! I used a new texturing trick I learned for the wall, and it came out pretty nicely. And believe it or not, the guy was just from imagination - no models or reference on this one.

Excellent work, Patrick! I love the rough texture on the sandy ground and the weathering of the stone wall. Great expression on the guy's face as well.

Art at its best.
