Deadlands Zombies Part 2

This is the second illustration I did for the Deadlands RPG for Pinnacle Entertainment, this one was smaller than the one I posted before.

I took an approach with a little more action since the one before was very still, I drew inspiration from games such as Resident Evil for the composition.

In the end I had to fix the zombies a lot, the I wasn't really happy with thefigures in the sketch, the buildings are also different.

I flipped the image for some reason too, I'm really happy with the textures and atmospheric perspective in this one.

Deadlands Zombies Part 1

This year I got to work for Pinnacle Entertainment on their RPG "Deadlands", it was a lot of fun because I love Cowboys and Undead creatures, and that's precisely what they wanted me to do.

This was the sketch I did, I always end up fixing a lot of things in the final specially the faces.

The composition is basically the same though, working with a lot of thumbnails helps a lot that way.

A weekend with R.K. Post - Part 2

Just before leaving, R.K. made me a little demonstration of how he worked, it was very interesting, how he grouped layers and everything was organized, he also made a good use of the smudge too in Photoshop.

I don't work in Photoshop that much, but I think I can transfer some of the tecniques to ArtRage, and it was certainly different from my usual "1 layer just paint on top of the damn thing" approach.

A weekend with R.K. Post - Part 1

It's very rare to have the opportunity to hang out with a great artist like R.K. Post here in Chile, so it was a great opportunity to have a good time and poke his brain.

We went to different places in Chile, the house of Pablo Neruda, the Museum of Pre Colombus Art, Hidalgo Castle (not much of a Castle now I'm afraid), etc.

He also made some nice drawings for me and the team at Devir

It's been some time since my last work for Headless Hydra Games, I really enjoy working on these covers, it was quite a challenge to design a construct, and I think it ended up nicely.

I think I'll draw a girl soon, I don't have a lady on my gallery now.

Otherverse Boston

I've been working on a RPG book for some time now, and I had the opportunity to do some scene illustrations, which I really haven't tried all that much.

I`'m somewhat pleased with the result, I still have one piece left so I'll see how that goes.

I also have some work under NDA and I hope I'll be able to show it soon.

Figure Drawing For All It's Worth

For those who didn't know, Andrew Loomis' books are being reprinted by Titan Books

Yesterday I received my books on the mail and I'm very happy with the quality of the book, it also has a good size, I've seen some of his books in spanish and I was afraid it'd be smaller.

You can buy the book on Amazon

Eowyn vs the Nazgul

Even though I haven't participated for a while on Art Order, I'm constantly paying attention to the challenges, I really liked how this one started and how it involved a mayor part of the artistic community, I decided I just had to throw my hat in the ring.

This is my finished piece

The Fallen Paladin

I had the pleasure of working for Headless Hydra Games during February, and not only that, I was commissioned to work on my first cover ever.

The piece is part of an adventure that will be released by Headless Hydra Games in the future, I really enjoyed working on this illustration and I hope I can do it again in the future.

DnD Monday 21

Back to DnD Mondays, I took some time off to finish a few commissions, it's hard sticking to a schedule for non paying pieces.

This was a commission done in Devir for Panini, it was a good break from all the website / community management business.

Done in ArtRage.

DnD Monday 20

Back to DnD Mondays, I had to take some time and finish a couple of commissions, I still have a few more to do so I'll keep the weekly activities simple, or maybe I'll post progress shots.

I've been reading Dragonlance lately, and this is my depiction of Tasslehoff Burrfoot, by far my favourite character.

You can guess the scene if you've read the books.
I might revisit this illo when I have more time btw.

Edit: Revisited over and over, I think it looks much better now.

DnD Monday 19

Happy New Year!

First DnD Monday and painting of the year, I think I'll start working on something more ambitious for next time, too many single characters, I don't like to post roughs though... oh well.

This is a private commission too, not a big fan of the pink and black combination, but I think it works here.
