Mid-February Slump

Here are two works in progress. The first is a continuation of the LMS fan art from the last post. The second is a fan art based on a quote by a professional SC2 player. Earlier this week I considered re-enlisting in the army, but then I saw the World of Warcraft TCG Facebook page update featuring new card art and I remembered what I am supposed to be doing.
Also, my tax refunds came in this week. It’s always nice to check your bank account and find amount of dollars more than you expected. I should probably start signing everything with ‘fenrysk’ at this point (so far I’ve only signed my work as ‘fenrysk’ for stuff that’d be seen on TeamLiquid), or re-brand to use my real name.

Caveman stage of a painting

When I showed one of my gamer buddies the initial block-in of my dryad painting, he said, “It looks like a caveman painting.”

So here’s my caveman stage for a fan piece for Dan LuVisi’s Last Man Standing property, after the character Alice, who is the gunstar with a gun-tar. I’ve been following the development of this IP probably as early as 2009, before Mr. LuVisi had to make changes to supporting character back-stories. In the particular case of Alice, the design of gun-tar had changed from the original concept to the painting that was published in the LMS Killbook. I wanted to re-design it further, being slightly unsatisfied with the version in the book.  I’ll explain the changes I made to the gun-tar design in a later post when I have a more refined painting of the gun-tar and it’s gunstar.
