Depressive Anthropomorphic Cat

February 9, 2009

Here’s another sketch requested by someone on the paizo.com messageboards: a depressive feline anthropomorph with a high-tech lens somewhat akin to a monocle replacing his left eye, which apparently was gouged out in a fight. It’s my first attempt at drawing a cat, that I can remember anyway–and definitely my first attempt at drawing a […]

Rude Hobbit

Peeking out from his hobbit hole, this hobbit lets the neighbors know how he feels.

Underworld: Dechrekhyn

November 15, 2008

Another conceptual sketch.  These are the amphibious dead souls, wallowing in the purgatory called Blouedvelth, bickering with and scrambling over each other for access to bloodroot, which gives them more substance and, when enough is consumed, allows a dechrekhyn to move beyond the swamp of sanguine murk and onto slightly better abodes as they make […]

In the Underworld: Blellivi Trisk

November 15, 2008

Burning the midnight oil tonight; here’s a pencil sketch of a sprawling and towering castle located in the remote regions of an underworld swamp of blood where amphibious dead souls suck and chew on bloodroot, trying to get their fill. If you’d been walking through that wet and drab nightmarish mess for too many hours, […]

Moussa in the Underworld

November 14, 2008

I’m happy to say that I definitely seem to be writing a novel. In it, several characters journey into the underworld. The bidi–sketches of which I’ve posted on this blog before–play a part in that, as gatekeepers to the underworld, although they also have a complex existence of their own. I originally thought that I […]

Two More Line Drawings from Lochre, the Alien Place Formerly Lo-Ubda

November 5, 2008

I’ve started working with the world-building process again.  Here are two recent line drawings from what I am now calling Lochre, where the shape-shifting Bidi emerge from hives and sculpt organic architecture from their bodily substances, and where a steamy and oppressive industrial revolution is taking hold of human cities.  Oh, the disenfrachised masses, the […]

Carapace Revisited

Another revision of an earlier piece, colorized.  

Scrub Steppes Revisited

August 18, 2008

This is a rework of an earlier piece.  Rather than depend on Photoshop for a host of clashing colors, I decided to see how it would turn out with a much smaller palette of markers.  I definitely like it better this way.  Unfortunately, the image you see here is scrunched up and the details are […]
