Jungle Clearing

Hey guys,

Here's a environment piece for the project. I made some new foliage brushes from a bunch of brush silhouettes I found on Hans Bacher's fantabulous blog and while painting this I tried to use some things I learnt from some Oga Kazuo studies I did a while ago:

And here's a little panel from the same story sequence:

I'm thumbnailing a bunch of WW1-style characters at the moment so hopefully I'll be able to show those soon.

Character Busts etc.

Hi there,

Here's some more work I've done the past week or so:

Here's a story/mood piece. I'm trying to work on some scenes with less direct lighting:

I'm planning to make some 'Top Trumps' style trading cards (using character sculpts and vehicle designs) to go with the book (whenever it's finally done!). I want them to resemble old cigarette cards from the early 20th century. Here's a mockup of how one side of a card might look:

That's it for now - cheers!
