Saw Inglourious Basterds last week - what a great flick. Highly recommended. Here's my rendition of Lt. Aldo Raine.

Middle Cyclone

I drew this yesterday during breaks from a lengthy & tedious graphic design project, and colored it today. I'm happy with the way it turned out--just as I imagined it when I drew the sketch a few months ago. This CD is all about nature and animals (plus lots of twisters). There is also a really lovely song called "Prison Girls" that inspired the girl.

Fox Confessor Brings the Flood

Here is the final artwork. The idea behind this drawing is based mostly off of the first song on the disc, "Margaret vs. Pauline" which is about how everything is so easy for Pauline, while poor Margaret keeps getting the short end of the stick. I blended this with little bits and pieces from all the other songs to create the whole narrative, with Margaret being the victim of the car crash in "Star Witness".

I decided last minute to change the red-haired girl's eyes. They looked too beautiful & vacant, and I really liked the sadness and depth that I captured in the original sketch. I'm still not sold on which I prefer.

Fox Confessor - Half Drawn

Here's an in-progress on the drawing for my Fox Confessor Bring the Flood album art. It's done in the style of the DList boys project - which is a divergence from the inky free style way that I did the Tigers Have Spoken. I'm not sure if this was the right choice - kind of wishing I went looser, but I'll finish and see how I like it then.

Saint Scholastica

I have finally finished, after more than a year sitting on the shelf, my painting of Saint Scholastica. It feels so good to have this little weight off my shoulders, I must say. It's also interesting to look at this and see a couple stylistic approaches that I was veering towards last year and have now moved away from.

Here is the original post.
