Starbucks Duckface

I saw a man at Starbucks today with a resting duckface that was pure perfection. Here is a sketch of him from memory.

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Player's Handbook Concepts

One of the best assignments I have worked on lately is a set of loose concepts that helped to flesh out the style guide for the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Player's Handbook. I worked with art director Jon Schindehette on the looks for various classes of characters across races and disciplines. I have seen how the new Player's Handbook took the ideas and ran with them for the final illustrations, sometimes using them as reference, while other times going in a new direction. It's really fun to see how the book turned out! I have a special place in my heart for D&D since my friend Forest Stearns gave me a spare 2nd Edition Player's handbook back in the mid 1990s. I pored over the illustrations and wondered what it took to get a job where I could draw dragons and wizards, so this is some what of a dream come true.

They even made little table top figures based on some of these guys!

I also worked on the upcoming Tyranny of Dragons adventures and I have some illustrations in the new Monster Manual as well. I will post some images from those as they are released.

Nothing particularly original here. Just playing around with something lyrical after work because my wife asked me to make her a drawing. I hope she likes it!

Above and Below

Here is a quick one I did today while playing with some brushes. It's Friday, so I suppose I'm thinking of travel and the weekend.
