Tonal stuff

Well heres some more stuff ta' look at. All the art is personal stuff that I am working on.


Mandrews out


since everyone liked the tonal robot better than the color (and cause i suck at color) here it is again in tone!!!!



Yes that is a lightsabre. A character for a Star Wars project that will probably never be made. But here's to dreaming!


Captain Badraq! One of the main characters from another sotry idea concived and adapted out of Role playing. One of the most fertal grounds for story ever- WHY!!!!???? 'Cause its character driven pal!


Another idea for a sci-fi version of a literary masterpiece. Can you guess which one. And don't think about stealing the idea. its already registered with the WGA.

Whatever it is, it's looking awesome!

These are awesome. Those unicycle horses are sweet... rpgs are the best, if you're the DM you get to throw all sorts of awful stuff at the players, turn their characters inside out... if you're a player, well, the whole game's about you...

I am extremely happy to see you posting twice in a week.

idiot circus boy---- gotta love phososhop! easy to change color to black and white. Of course its not simply to desaturate the image I had to get in there and fiddle with the tones more.

Emma-----I love the unicycle horses too. Even modeled them on MAYA. Gaming rocks i have a blast being a player character or DM. Badraq was a character I played. It was a great sci fi game. Some friends of mine who also played we even started doing a comic. Maybe I'll draw it up someday.

Don't know If i can keep posting twice a week though.


Monkeyfeather---- more???? absolutely!!!


Dave---- Thanks man. keep checking in.

Holy Moly!

I just came back here after a couple of weeks and what do I see? Two rocking new posts!

The robots were great. I like how you've added motion effects in the B/W one.

The chariot one reminds me of Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. Have you played that? It's my favorite RPG series ever.

Hope you keep posting this quickly.

Great stuff! Really like the diffused imagery.
I don't know why but I get the feeling of an Arthur Conan Doyle story when I look at the last one

Luxo jr---- I am honored to be on your desktop.


Rohit--- no I have not played prince of persia but Ive heard nothing but good things about it. I am usually too busy to spend anytime delving into video games. Ah well.


Young Vo---- Thank you sir.


Tirso Cons-----Thanks man. Just enough detail to get a sense of whats in the bg. I think to tell the story whats happening in the bg is as important as the character. As for the lighting....I am trying to learn as much as I can- especially from Craig Mullins that mans stuff is amazing!!!!


Alina Chau---Thank you.


Rob A-----Arthur Conan Doyle!!!! thats great. I think because its a big action adventure kind of image and mr. Doyle had an affinity to action stories.


st. John Street--- thanks man. Robotic Unicycle steeds are fun to draw and dynamic. Glad you liked the image.



Mandrews out!

Mark sir

It's official, this stuff rocks. I hear what you're saying about roleplaying being a fertile source for inspiration and storyboarding. Just aboput every project I've got off the ground has it's roots in that genre. It's how one learns to be a storyteller. Well, that was the case for me, anyways....

Bada Bling!
