April blog dump! 2017

"Mound builder" concept. Inspired and photo ref from Andrei Riabovitchev


Tried out some Zbrush scuplting and then some Substance painter, turned out pretty cool.

"Digger" breeder race concept.

"Leeches" card game illustration. 

"Sewer rat" card game illustration.

"What way" card game illustration.

"Strong lock box" card game illustration. Sculpted in Zbrush and then used substance painter to experiment with textures. Took the picture below and painted over it in photoshop. Added color and refined the details.

Rendered out example.


"Archaic Relic" card game illustration. Same here, used Zbrush to sculpt the key, added more texture and painted in highlights in photoshop. Really fun process!

Dark version that I decided to lighten a bit and add high lights.

Take care ppl! Be sure to check out some random stuff on my instagram, link on the left. :). Have a great weekend!

September dump! Concepts and card illustrations.

 Creature of the swamp concept "Scavenger". Generations of unhealthy environment it somehow developed into this being. Some human like features can be seen in some of them. Solely relies on its senses as it is totally blind. Scavenger and pretty dangerous in close combat. 

 "Catacomb breeders" a happy bunch :).

  "Bound ones" Final stage. Added brighter green in the back and stronger highlight so the characters got a stronger silhouette. Didn't focus as much on the characters in the back as I did on the front one. 

I think I painted over the b/w layer with color mode overlay. All three characters and trees in the background on separate layers. Blocked in some basic colors I wanted and started to add some highlights. 

After the sketch is done I like to refine the linework and then add values. Using clipping mask to add the shadows is useful when I want to experiment with different light scenarios.

 "Angler of eels, The yb" Fisherman.

"Defender"

Hero illustration "Branded occultist".

Hero illustration "Mercenary".   


 
Concept art of "Drowned ones" relic offering.


Aaand some zbrush doodels. Have a great day yall!

Time for a dump! Studies and sketches and whatnot!


Photocopy study, Shagga from Game of thrones! Looking forward to the new episodes, going to be good :).


Been watching some Black sails, really dig the serie and the attention to prop details is excellent making it one of my favorite series. This dude is called "Blackbeard"...


Late night sketch, just fooling around is fun! 


Another late night sketch! "Warlock".


Environment exploration for the card game. Secret entrance placed in a manor that is really hard to get access to.



Some gnarly dudes from the cult "Breeders" they are so called seekers that will find and catch humans that escaped the prisons. Card game illustration!


"Satchel" for the card game, nothing weird here...


Drowned one "Occultist" concept art.


Concept art "Angler of eels". Been streaming some of it on twitch, check it out!


Another concept of "Angler of eels" cult.

Saturday blog dump! Guardsman, and fake Mtg Cards and other stuff.

New version of the Guardsman card illustration. I wasn't that satisfied with the other version so I did another one :). He is supposed to be the basic soldier card with allround good stats. Lots of fun working on him, and got most of it recorded and uploaded on my youtube account. 


Most useful instrument against beasts...



Over at Brainstorms Fb group the topic was to create either basic red or black landscapes. I couldn't resist to play with the ideas. I really dig the awesome artists at Wizard of the coast. Had a blast working on them!







Almighty wizard, with a set of skills and items you cant be without :). 

Wulwen concept art for the Blisterrot world, he is one of the Breeder faction. I did a rough sketch then did a cleaner line work layer over it. Used a base color and a clipping layer with the shadows on so I could experiment with that easily.  

Here is a colored version! Some background info: 

Tämjare:(The little dude with the whip I painted) breeder of "Werewolfs", mutaded humans/wolfs that will hunt down human habitats. Tortured souls of humans still remains in the beasts, and some of the humanity is shown from time to time. But when its blood moon they hunt... Tämjarens role in the cult is to train the beasts and keep them addicted to human blood and that way keep them in the Wulwen state. They are kept in cages down in the ruins of the lighthouse. The cages are made with silver and iron to keep them in such a weak state that they cant escape. When they are in the cages they are more humans than Wulwen. (awesome inspiration by Bloodborne :)

Take care ppl!
