Yep - last one for this month (phew)
Had quite a struggly with this - mainly because all three characters are main characters and therefor of course had to be recognizable as themselves.
I don't know if they are offical short story characters or for the CCG only.


Photoshop 7 from sketch to color (posting those under drawings - because you can actually still see some linework here and there..)

Well now, this is sure a departure from your usual work -- I like the selection of characters (the fella on the top right reminds me of John Constantine for some reason, must be the trenchcoat and Sting-like hair :laughing:). Looking forward to seeing more departures from the norm from you, I hope it was fun to work on

Oh yep - a lot of fun but a bit scary :nod:

The characters were given and the one you mentioned has been amazingly cool illustrated by Kormack earlier (now isn't that scary). So I went from there. If you are interested I can dig up the reference I used for him (the card art from Kormack I mean).

How did it feel to work on pre-existing characters? A little weird?

I see it, the DA is going really wonky right now. :D Awesome color, I so love your realism, that smoke from the cigar looks so good. The faces are too, but little things like that really get to me. :D

Kyena Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
thank you :)
well I call this style rough realism or something..dunno. It fits the overall feeling of the other cards from the game (at least I think so) and besides I can work pretty fast that way).

yeah - well - had to show one of the three characters from behind and since his hat is easily recognizable (and the cigar) it was an easy choice.

Nice mood, i like the shadowing :)

Maybe a minor point on the old man's face that seems a bit "curved".

The expression of the young one is really stong and eloquent.

Now you'll go on working on Alice? (Or go on hollidays :p)

Ah, but a rough drawing can still convey many things, such as expression.

Gesture drawings are just a few scribbles, and yet you can see people, sometimes in fantastic poses, in them.

Don't worry, dA is kinda slow now. It took me several minutes to see it, and had to see in full view, because the preview didn't show up :hmm: But it's there ;)
