This is one of my traditional illustrations from December, created with watercolor pencils and ink. It takes place in 1955, before Spencer was a vampire. Hoping to draw more art of him and this fluffball sometime, since I can never resist infusing horror with cuteness. My patrons can see how he met her here.
For those of you curious about Spencer’s past in general, you can get more glimpses of it here, here, and here. Will delve even deeper into it once my horror comic launches, since I plan to release a prequel about his path to vampirism. Hope you guys are enjoying all the concept art, in the meantime!
As some of you may remember, I have a Patreon page. I share high-res art there on a regular basis, some of which will never be posted anywhere else—not even this blog! These four are the latest exclusives…
Spencer makes a new friend! (Someone had to like him before Jay was born, right? Also, this is a two-panel comic strip. Double the fun!)
Want to see more? Become a patron! Each pledge makes it easier for me to keep working as an artist, so many thanks to everyone able to support me there. Will be showing my appreciation with even more exclusive artwork in 2017!
Back in November, I
offered free ACEOs of my characters. ACEOs are miniature pieces of art that
measure 2.5x3.5 inches in size. Mine are created traditionally with watercolor
pencils; inking pens and markers are sometimes mixed in, too. I ended up
getting two requests, and both wanted them to be Christmas-themed.
The first request was
for Jay, who stars in the horror comic I’m developing. Unlike Spencer, Jay loves Christmas, so he tends to embrace
this time of year…
The second request I had
was for Arden, a snarky teenage god who belongs to an old fantasy project of
mine. (Originally, it was a book series, but I plan to reboot it someday as a
webcomic.) Arden’s very skilled at mundane mortal activities, obviously…
I might offer more free ACEOs in 2017, so make sure to keep a lookout for that, if any of you are interested in owning some original art!
