Artwork Description

This is from the Call of Cthulhu CCG - actually the card is called "Hobo", but all the time I was doing the card I was thinking of "Riders on the Storm" by The Doors. "There's a killer on the road / His brain is squirming like a toad".

Hi Just wanted to stay I have temporarily lifted this image for a song on my Myspace - please let me know if you want me to remove it and I will.
It so perfectly fitted the song I have written I couldn't resist. I absolutely love this picture! When I wrote this song (Evelyn) this is the guy I had in my brain that is spooky.
Regards Bill Morris

Hey, that's a good song Wink. You're art piece really fits well with the feel of it, too.

Hi, Uwe! Thanks, I'm enjoying experimenting (as always). Always nice to hear from you!

your "new textured" look is fantastic - wonderful stuff really, really wonderful - and as usual great use of light - a real joy to look at your work...

Thanks Marie - for your comments, and for visiting my site! I'm glad you like the "sketchy" look here, too.

Wow I really like how the style in this one retains a lot of the "pencily" feel of your original sketch. (having been to your website and looked at your sketches, I can see that coming through here.) The backlighting is also spiff! Laughing out loud

I'm happy you liked it, Simon. I did another picture recently (it's not on epilogue) where I showed up the hairs on rim-lighting like this. It worked so well I tried it again here - it's a neat trick!

Thanks, Rita! Run the other way - and don't give him any money!

Thanks! I actually had fun with the veins, so I don't mind that you singled them out Smile I've finally gotten to the point with skin details like that where I think they show up without looking unnatural.

Great overall image. I like the lighting most; a bright backlight, which is coincidently what I'm aiming to achieve on my current image - I hope I do it as well as this. Ha! You can even see the hairs on his arm!

If I had to say one thing that I really really liked on this.... he has damn cool veins. Anyway - great pic once again, the brownish hue gives this a nice quality, and once again, cool lighting.

Art at its best.
