It's been a busy year. Here are some new painting I produced for World of Warcraft card game. Fun characters in fantasy environments. I create a drawing first then scan it in to paint on top. The main focus of the drawing is to see the overall shape design and the breakdown of light and shadow shapes. It's not about making something look realistic but how do the shadow shapes create an interesting design. One of the most important decisions is choosing the direction of the light on the subject. Once you choose the direction of the light, the real magic happens as you design how the light falls off the form to create interesting shadow shapes.
