Warrior Gnome for World of Warcraft
Earlier on this year I was asked to paint a small piece for Blizzard's World of Warcraft. I was given a choice between a few different characters . . . I ended up choosing the gnome. This was different than what I am used to doing . . . I know absolutely nothing about World of Warcraft. I was given lots of reference on their gnome characters as well as weapons and so on. I had to stick with a certain "feel", but overall, I was able to create the character and look of this little guy pretty much how I wanted.
Most the reference that I was given on World of Warcraft was extremely colorful so I chose to do what felt more natural for me and paint a darker image. I wanted this little bugger to look tough but also cute.
It was a lot of fun to work on and as I mentioned earlier, I'm not into the fantasy type art, or at least I've never worked on anything like this before, so it was a learning experience for me. I have been asked to do more images for W.O.W. so we'll see?

"Food for Pictures" Urban Ape
"Urban Ape" Quick sketch for a painting I want to do.
A little explanation may be needed for my title . . . ? This guy reminded me so much of an ape, the way he sat and moved, his expressions and so on . . . . I simply called it "Urban Ape" because he's a city guy . . . with his cigarettes and coffee and so on. I do not hate homeless people, but find them interesting and good subjects for drawing. I bought the man some food . . . food for pictures and he agreed.
