D&D Spot Illustrations and a Figure Drawing

Here are a few 1/4 page illustrations I did for Dungeon and Dragon Magazines over the past several months. The two characters on the left I did for Jon Schindehette, and the four weapons I did for Keven Smith. I've enjoyed doing pieces this small, the variety is a nice break from some of the bigger, more involved pieces I've posted lately.


Also, this past Sunday my friends and I went to an uninstructed figure drawing session, and it was great to get back to drawing from life. I felt a little rusty at first, but this stuff is like riding a bike.


Thanks for looking, I'll have more goodies soon!

Awesome spots, McLean! Digging those weapons and the pendant! For being "rusty", the sketch is looking really nice :)

right on dude!

Great spots. Finding love for a decorative hammer is what sets an illustrator apart from a dude who paints hammers.

I'm not really sure what I just typed, but they are gorgeous.
