Hi all, here's a thing I just finished. Zombies and Cowboys! I included a version with temp lettering just to give an indication of layout. I won't be handling that stuff in the end. Anyway thanks or looking -Ray

Also here's a time lapse video of my chaotic process of painting if you're interested:)

Here are a bunch of environment thumbnails. It seemed like I kept making the same environment over and over with the custom brush technique so I wanted to step back to the basics and make a bunch of simple b+w environment thumbnails that were different from each other. I feel it was a good experiment, I got diversity in the images, and I think i may have refined my understanding of light and form just a little bit more.

having life studies next to monster ideas is always fun. And, the demon got drawn over a horrible scribble some drunk local made in my book. (me)

IMC Final

It's been a while but I've been busy:) Here's the final barring any tweaks...

The illustration is from a design brief for a book called Green by Jay Lake that is due to be published soon by Tor books. Dan Dos Santos has the honor of illustrating the real cover and it's a beauty. I'm fortunate enough to have had some great input from Dan, Scott Fischer, Greg Manchess, Donato, Boris and Julie, and the rest of the IMC alumni of 2008. Thanks all! I could not have progressed as far as I did without your help and encouragement!
