Cyclops Stormcaller

Sorry for the lack of posting. October is always a busy month with NY Comic Con and Illuxcon along with the general busyness of life.

But no fear!

With all the drawings I've created, very few get finished with full color. But I'm trying to change that by taking some of my favorite pieces and color them to send out as examples to art directors. So I pulled out the Cyclops Stormcaller I drew inspired by the Critical Role source book. I really liked the description and lore Matt Mercer created and knew I wanted to draw it.

Digital color to me is always a balance of cools and warms and not losing the drawing under all the layers of color. The base colors always start either warm or cool then the shadows/highlights will be the opposite with glazes of color on top to unify. My method is probably not perfect but so far its been working for me. So back to coloring I go!

K'Varn Revealed

I don't create fan art often because I like to draw my own worlds. But Critical Role will be the only show that constantly inspires me. A D&D game played by a group of voice actors that is honestly better then most TV shows. I'm in!

Here is a drawing of their first major villain for their online stream. K'Varn the evil scientist beholder of the under dark. He controls a vast army of mind controlled denizens of the darkness. Through many battles of war camps, castles, and strange lands Vox Machina barreled into K'Varn's layer and a difficult battle Vox Machina killed the beholder. Returning to the land above with their rescued friend Kima of Vord

Here's the progress towards the color version:
