Boatman of R’lyeh

I went for a short cruise during the holidays. This was the captain of the ship.

Boatman of R'lyeah

Well, okay – maybe I didn’t. Maybe the image is just my take on Scobot’s character for the CTT.

Bathing giant

Two images drawn for the CTT activity again. First one’s after Maximillian’s sketch, and the second is just some stream of consciousness nonsense. So, there’s no particular political or other agenda behind that one.

Girls’ Adventure!

Here’s something a bit different that I’ve been meaning to finish for quite some time now. It’s sort of a bastard son of the covers of the 50s & 60s men’s “sweat magazines” and girls’ romance comics. Mostly those magazines were produced by men and usually it’s pretty easy to tell…

The illustration is a mixture of 3D and whole lot of Photoshop. I didn’t actually model anything so I guess this is what you would call “Poser art”. I textured the icky tentacles though. I like icky things.

Quite frankly this piece would have taken a whole lot less if I had just painted the damn thing. I had fun though, and I like the real-but-not-quite feel that the piece has, as if I had used puppets or miniature models. I don’t think I could achieved the the same look for the tentacles by painting either.

And here’s a detail for a better look at the lover boy and just for the hell of it.

Elf Bomb

Here’s a couple of images for the CTT activity at U16. The first one is after Audzilla’s sketch and I’m not sure if it makes any sense without it. The second one is of course the image for the next in line.

mechanic Behemoth

Here’s a giant robot setting the city ablaze, kaiju style. For the CTT at Unit 16, after Scott’s sketches.

I may have gone a little crazy with the glows but what the hell, it was fun. Here’s my sketch for the next in the activity:

Drinking and Drawing

Here are some doodles that I’ve done over a few nights of drinking and drawing. Pretty much all typical motifs for those nights are represented: Superheroes, rockers, barbarians, women and general bad taste… For many of these I picked a theme and stuck with it until the next paper.

Jeez, the site sure is slow today.

Huntress

Another fairly quick image done for the CTT activity at Unit 16. I did another sketch before this one but it kind of turned into shit, so I had another go. This is based on Audzilla’s sketch.

Black Paladin

Just a character design… His hood setup reminds me of nuns so I figure he must be a man of cloth. Loin cloth.

And a thong.

The Mating Habits of the Deep Ones #1

Deep One

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the deep ones.

The Deep Ones are a race of frog-like, ocean-dwelling creatures with an affinity for mating with humans.

Despite that they’re basically mind bogglingly horrific, fishy frog-creature-horrors, the mating does happen regularly. Much of how it happens is still a mystery but thanks to recent advances in sciences, the scientists at Miskatonic University have unveiled more facts about the process.

The males have a special mating dance to woo the ladies:

The females on the other hand have a more direct approach:

The Female Approach

Stay tuned for more exciting revelations that everyone wants to hear!

Winter Fairy

As promised here’s the second image for the CTT. This one’s based on Adam Duncan’s fairy sketch. You can ask him why she’s all naked.

I imagine she likes to sit down with a nice, hot cup of fermented rowan berry juice to keep the cold, bitterly lonely winter away.

Conan vs. Demons

I barely have any time to draw these days, but here he is anyway: Everyone’s favorite barbarian – trespassing hell.

Conan vs. Demons

Traditional inks, each of the characters was drawn separately and then the final image was put together and colored in Photoshop.
