Hour and a half doodle, another installment of “Magically delicious” where I rummage around in my cards, pull a random one out, and screw around with the concept a bit.  This one is the Zarichi Tiger, from Gatecrash. Did it while waiting for my Kickstarter to get verified, which is why it hasn’t gone up  yet. BUT SOON. 

If you guys would like to suggest a magic card/ concept for these, i’m all ears. Though I generally do these randomly as little exercises.

Another random CS warmup sketch thing to get me ready….to do taxes! HOORAY. TAXES! YEAH! 

Here we’ve got Raziel letting someone else do his job for him. I dunno what I was thinking, honestly, lol.  It’s fun screwing around with the dynamics or location. I wanna do one where they’re just in space for no reason. Why? Because space, that’s why.

very early WIP for whimlet on FA , going with a sort of  Kaprosuchus -esque  critter. Still has about 2 hours left to go. 

I’ve been working hard getting ready for Caelum Sky Illustrated’s first book to go up on kickstarter, getting prices and assets all finished for the project to go up around the 15th. Sorry I’m slow with the updates. There’s just a ton of stuff to do, haha!

I recently joined a Pathfinders group, and didn’t wanna have no human, so I went with the Grippli - A frog man. Imma Alchemist :D
I”m also like a foot and a half tall. Happy our DM allows atypical races in. Whole party is practically a circus.  - If anyone wants to suggest a name, I’m all ears. I hate naming things. 

Horrendous pen sketches, ahoy!

waitisthatpee asked: How do you paint your clouds? They always look so amazing.

Ha! I love painting me some clouds- I think originally I tried to stick close to real life clouds, or more accurately, what I thought real life clouds looked like. After a while you realize that you can stick to a couple basic rules, and then just scribble the hell out of it and get decent clouds. Rules like: 

— Clouds have shape/mass

—Clouds block light

—Clouds can be literally any color, given the correct atmosphere and lighting conditions to do so.  They’re a reflection of light, both ambient and direct. In that mindset, don’t go nutty and put your ubergreen clouds on a blue midday sky, it’ll look very goofy.

Usually how I start is that i’ll have a basic color gradient of sorts for my sky. Then sort scope about and try to get a feel for what colors i’d like my clouds to be, and see how that sits with me. So, for like an orange sky, Start painting a few peach-colored clouds, couple red ones, mix and sample all over your illustration to get different reflections and different tones. Find what you like! 

Honestly how i’ll start actually painting the clouds is that I’ll just start scribbling everywhere.  Take a sort of sharp-ish, chiseled brush, usually in a darker color than what i’ll end up with for the cloud, and just go…apeshit on that sky. Make it spontaneous.  make some crazy-ass clouds that  help frame the main part of your image, use it as a tool of composition or a way to convey feeling, oddly enough.  Sharp, jagged clouds will make your subject more frightening or imposing, soft, bubbly-ass clouds are lovely and relaxed.  In that same way, soft, bubbly clouds on a terrifying monster can create a bit of humorous contrast, and death-metal clouds on bubbles the cat will sorta make it look like something from Deviantart. So…avoid that one. Or don’t. I ain’t the boss of you.

When you’ve got a base on what you want/ or at least negative space that makes you happy, then you can start filling in the form on your clouds. Less is more on this front, though-  If you perfectly render each and every cloud like it’s bathed in perfect sunlight—-everywhere—- then you’ll get a windows 95 screensaver. So just keep the rules in mind for clouds, realize how they work, how they act, use good references to help you along, and practice and play to your hearts content!

Hope this helps!
