Bombshells : Women of War Sketch card commission


Thought you could use a little boobage! lol.

This is a sketch card commission that I should've posted long ago, but Ive put off because ive had so many pics to post. Its an Artist Proof card that I had left over for the Bombshells : Women of War set by Axebone studios. I was commissioned to do a sexy warrior lady on it, so thats what I did. Also included some progress pics for you. Hope you don't mind the boobs, just doing what the client wanted.

I dont draw many nudes but i will occasionally. If you dont believe the saying " sex sells" heres a fun little experiment to try. Draw your favorite female character & put it on ebay. Then Draw the same character nude, I bet I know which one will sell first and for more money!

The Jackal Goblin

The Jackal Goblin is one of the most feared predators known to all living things. Although Named after a jackal they are actually the evolutionary end result of cross breeding between a particular genus of goblin, and that of a baboon. The Joining of these two species resulted in the cunning & vileness of goblins with the agility & ability to reason from their simian side. You will only see the crown of bones protruding from the head of males in the species.

Although they are a relatively small creature (only a bit larger than that of a chimpanzee) it does not limit their ability to be one of the most dangerous and irritatingly difficult creatures you will ever face. The main difference you will notice from that of a regular goblin is their reluctance to face you head on in open battle, instead they resort to guerilla tactics ( hit, run, hide), very seldom leaving the security of the tree tops. Brandishing primitive bows with poison tipped arrows they can topple foes within seconds.

You will never find a Jackal Goblin alone unless sick or dying. These highly social creatures live in small pack communities within the trees, making them extremely lethal in larger groups. Often times you will hear the screams and yelps of warring packs above (usually over territory or prey). Although the sights and sounds of such battles can be terrifying, it is actually what keeps the jackal goblin populations at bay. Whole forests have been burned down, just do bring the creatures out in the open, in the hopes of exterminating them.

The most notable characteristic of the Jackal Goblins ( and where I suspect the name comes from) are the cackling cries made when agitated or excited. When these shrills of simulated laughter & panic fill the air, you best flee, unless you are prepared to lose a few men to the impending onslaught that approaches.

Yes, I made that up....Yes, Im a geek....No, I dont care.

So did I mentioned that I loved Tan toned paper?

5x7 Done with pencil, marker, ballpoint pen, gouache, and some colored pencil, on tan toned paper.

Sinister Promo Card artwork for Asylum Studios

Some artwork That was done for an exclusive Promo card for the upcoming Sinister Trading card set by Asylum Studios.

Was going for a clive barkers meets Little Red riding hood Vibe....tried to make it a little sexy even though she's a disgusting demonic corpse thing...LOL. This was done in Photoshop with a wacom tablet.... I would LOVE a cintique....but.... starving artist thing. Horror art is always really fun to me, doesnt feel like work, I grew up on horror movies, so it just comes natural. I was going to do a full scene, but I thought since its going to be used for a 2.5x3.5 inch card, best focus on the face & torso area. Also I tried to rush as much as possible, because I was taking over for someone who dropped out....closer deadline. Anyway, hope you like it!

Here's the initial Marker sketch! Then I threw it into photoshop & used it as an underpainting!
