The first step was to print the illustration then cut some thin wood for the cover stick the illustration and copy it to the wood After the drawing was copied I traced it the a pyrograph Then a bit of wood stain so the outer part is darker and the middle illustration pops out Done! Next time… assembling the text block!
A friend asked me for a book design and said it needed to have “a tree and a lion“. After collecting a lot of pic of lions and trees i came up with this illustration I then added some extra elements to complete the cover and finally put some textures to see how it would look in the real world.. Next time… starting the build!
I was re-watching the x-files, which was a huge part of my youth so I obviously wanted a “I want to believe” poster for my workshop but I couldn´t find a good hi-res file, besides there are quite a few versions floating around. I the end, i chose this scene as reference: And I made mine with a mixture of images from all over the internet. You can download the image from HERE
Here is the first in a series of book I’m planing of doing along this year. I thought of making some books on classic fantasy and horror themes, so the first drawing i did was of a dwarf so I just went with it. Here is the first drawing: And here is the complete design just to have some reference when building the actual book: Next: cutting the cover!
I´m working on the art for the second part of my parody indi game MiniDoom 2 and here are some previews of the enemies!

Did I mention I fucking love Warhammer 40K? Well I do, I haven’t played the game at all (since that requires way to much money and time), but I love the novels and their universe. I have created a new download section for all my Warhammer stuff! Anyway, I wanted a t-shirt with a design based on the wall engravings that you see on the awesome game Space Marine so did one and here it is in case anyone wants to use it for anything… It has the color and b/w version and all the parts in transparent PNGs in case you want to rearrange them.
Since I already did my version of the Necronomicon from the 2013 movie (over here), and are in the middle of recreating the pages from the classic movies (over here), I thought I might as well do the pages from the new absolutely awesome series Ash vs the Evil Dead. The challenge here is that these pages are drawn in a watercolor-like style and also.. there are animated so I’ve made a composition of several frames to more or less assemble a page that I could re-draw (maybe)… This will take quite a bit of time to make since I’m not even sure what style to use to re-make them but I leave you with the assembled page I created from screenshots in case anyone finds them useful. Here is my work in progress…. VERY “in progres” These first pages were all over the internet when the series was first released so no mastery here… And here are my attempts to create re-drawable pages from the animations on the show: And here is another pic that is obviously not from the book but its just cool so I will make it into a page: I have created a dropbox folder … Read More
