My Work in Progress

A sketchblog where I post a few of my scribbles from a variety of works-in-progress, usually from my rather random personal creativity outside of the daily grind. I occasionally, but not always, post the final artwork.

EOW Progress: Menolly's Dragon Stones Cove concept

I'm sad to say that I wasn't able to make the deadline for the EOW #100 challenge. There are some other artists that did finish and they've posted their most excellent work in the final burning thread on conceptart website here.

However, being such a fan of Anne McCaffrey's early Dragonriders of Pern books, I'm determined to finish all five of my own concepts when I have some more time once again after the holidays. I did get close to being happy with the above concept, and I may just revisit it again in the next year to do a tighter print-ready illustration of "Menolly's Dragon Stones" featured in the book, "Dragonsong".

Sorry about the deadline. I really liked where you were going with these. I guess it's always good to have projects in the works for future applications however. :-)

Definitely!

I like Anne McCaffrey's early visions of Pern too much not to finally put down some of my favorite scenes on paper (digital or otherwise). Participating in the EOW challenge and supporting conceptart.org was a good excuse. :)

I'll still be posting more work for these for sure...
