Evilera Devilonia, one of the stars of the paranormal action series "The Strangers"... 9 1/2" x 11" pen & ink illustration painted using Photoshop CS2. The piss-poor thinness of the line work compounded with a bad scan, caused this image to be plagued with artifacts and poor quality lines. I persevered nevertheless. Meh. Not happy with the overall end product...try again.

This is Vigil, Andy. He's a psychopathic killer. This was also part of a collage of doodles on the back inside cover of one of my blackbooks...2"x 2" pen & ink illustration digitally painted in Photoshop. The "smoke"was actually smoke coming from the chimney in the "AD" doodle on the same page (see above) and I decided to keep it with the Vigil, Andy bust to keep the piece from looking like a disembodied head.
Leatherneck achieved...9 1/2" x 11" b&w illustration digitally painted in Photoshop, as always. I'm not thrilled with this color scheme; I'll probably do a couple of variant schemes until I find the one I like. Leatherneck is part of a meta human field operations unit set within the "Evidence" universe.

Yep, it's Itep again, a simple mugshot doodle...2" x 2" pen & ink sketch, scanned and painted in Photoshop. Another shout out to Aragone's as far as styles are concerned. This is actually a style I have only started using over the last couple of years. I prefer realism but I am looking to perfect a more freestyle, cartoony look for versatility.
Random character creation...9 1/2" x 11", b&w illustration digitally painted in Photoshop, complete with nifty effects. I was going to end up using this character for a futuristic vigilante story, she had a back story and everything, but I scrapped the whole concept. The Cape is all that remains.

A quick doodle, not much to say about this one...pen&ink sketch, half-assed on Photoshop. This is another commission that trashed out early, so it remains unfinished. I meant to add more gradients and highlights for the fabric but lost interest once it became pointless to continue.

Let's take a break from Itep before we see him again...9 1/2" x 11", b&w illustration and painted in Photoshop using a damned mouse! This was a commissioned illustration for a website(caveman.com or some other) that never took off and I kept it for my personal portfolio. I was glad to accomplish some type of success with this illustration, given the circumstances.
