Beasts of Neptune Line Art

Here is the line drawing for a piece I said I would do a while back. This is a companion piece to the attack ship painting. I wanted to depict the first meeting the ship had with the large methane feeders that cruise the foggy atmosphere. These creatures are not aggressive, but I wanted them to feel intimidating none the less. I will do a painting on top of this in photoshop.

Night Giant

I have been on a traditional kick recently, mostly because I want to change things up from the digital work I do every day. This piece came from no direction in particular. It started out as a free-form brush-pen sketch with black ink. After pushing things around for a while, I became bored and decided to try and experiment with watercolors. First it was a set of three monsters, then it became a landscape painting, then it became a burning castle, and finally the iteration you see here. This final product is loosely based another post I did with a flaming castle. I imagine this is a beast summoned by the victims in the former painting to seek revenge for the destruction of their homes.
