Drow Wisdom #3 - mostly done

I wasn't ready to go to bed at a reasonable time, so I spent a while on the new poster :

A little more adjustment needed - but it's mostly finished now I think.

Drow Wisdom #3 - initial work

I decided to do another 'Drow Wisdom' poster tonight - or get one started at least :

I might get this finished tomorrow.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #53 Keeping a Secret

The idea for this one came pretty quick :

This is supposed to be Chancellor Palpatine. He was keeping a pretty damn big secret.

Not too bad - though I'm not terribly good at caricature !

'Overtaken' cover art

A reasonably simple piece of cover art for the guys at The Dunesteef :

Really just lines and text, with some perspective transformation.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #52 Deep in Thought

Just finished this one :

The hands aren't very good. And the crystal glow isn't as good as it could be - but otherwise I kinda like how this one went.

I've been invited to do some cover art for The Dunesteef again, so the Balls of Steel might be on hold for a little bit. Or maybe not. But I will be doing something a bit different again !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #51 Sport

This one took a little longer than I expected. I knew that I wanted to do a Blood Bowl player for this one - though actually getting the drawing done was trickier than I first thought it would be. I started doing some orc players, they they really weren't working - so I switched to a human. In the end I copied the body pose of a gridiron player - then converted it to a Blood Bowl player though the armor :

No time to add any colour I'm afraid !

I messed up the legs a little, but otherwise it's not too bad.

Alternatively-Inspirational Poster #2

I had fun doing the last one, I've experimented with a second while the youngest has been having a nap :

Again - not too bad !

Alternatively-Inspirational Poster #1

I've recently signed on to Pinterest - a image based sorta-social media service. I'm enjoying it so far, and have been 'pinning' all sorts of interesting pictures ( largely based on sci-fi, fantasy of video games ). But I have noticed that there are an awful lot of inspirational quote images. While I like an inspirational quote as much as the next guy, the sheer amount of them got to me a little. As a wee joke, I thought about doing a series based on proverbs from the Drow - the dark elves of the
Dungeons and Dragons game. The Drow are thoroughly evil - and there are a bunch of wonderfully nasty sayings they have. One person enrougraged me to give it a go - which is enough for me ! So here's my first try :

Not too bad !

'Mudertown, 1 Mile' cover

A bit of a detour, doing a piece of cover work for a short story :

I'd like to stylize the body outline, and widen it a bit - but I'll run it by the author and see what he thinks.
