Bein' Sketchy With Noble Treachery, Part 2: The Crown

The second illustration I was commissioned to do for Noble Treachery was "The Crown". I was simply asked to illustrate the crown of a dead king, maybe with a skull, on display somehow. I don't know why but I immediately had an image in my head that I wanted to do for it, so I submitted these two sketches. Again, the art needed to work in a square format, but because I wanted a vertical piece for myself I extended it a bit.

I was given the go-ahead on the second sketch, and moved on to do a more detailed drawing.

Post about the finished painting to come..when it is finished.
Until then, consider supporting Noble Treachery on Kickstarter here!

Bein' Sketchy With Noble Treachery, Part 1: The Assassin

Recently I was commissioned to do a pair of pieces for a game called Noble Treachery, which is currently up for funding on Kickstarter. I encourage everyone to check it out here, and support it if it seems like your kind of thing. It looks pretty cool(and I'm only a little biased). 

The first piece I was asked to illustrate was a medieval assassin, preferably a femme fatale. The piece needed to work within a square, but since I wanted a vertical piece for myself I extended the art. I submitted these three sketches.

The first sketch was chosen, but I was asked if she could have more of a "dominatrix" feel, while keeping her in medieval times. She gained a bunch of buckles and studded leather.

That did the trick, and I moved on to do this drawing.

I'm currently working on the final painting, so there will be a post about it when it is finished.

Next time...The Crown!
