These are a few test pics for something I will probably be illustrating in the near future.
I do a few of these everytime I get a new text to illustrate just to see if my illustration style can work. Sometimes a great text does not work visually and I like to make sure I can do justice to what the authors writte and so instead of rough sketches I tend to do these illustrations just to get confortable with a project before I begin officially on it.
More artwork from an old commissioned project I did years ago. This is from the period I was learning how to illustrate in digital so it has some mixed results in it. I guess…
This was done entirely finger painted using the ARTRAGE app for IPad on an IPad 2.
I don´t do much black and white art nowadays but the lack of color is something that I really like and so it was fun to try to illustrate like this, even if then later I also did a color version for the special edition of the book. The dragon above was one of my first tests for this job and the initial image was just an idea for a cover or a poster.
The remaining illustrations below are from the inside of the book.
Just another old project, this time for a board game.
Just some old christmas greeting card illustrations I did several years ago for a company in Ireland.
