Tree of Life (finished)

 Couldn't make up my mind on the background colors, but I'm leaning toward brown, not purple.  Though that is a nice purple...
But yeah, it's done.  From what I can tell from the report of the blog tracker the sketch for this gets the most hits, because people are looking for tattoo tree designs.  Cool.  Drop me a line if my drawin' is being permanently carved into your FLESH!  (it is Halloween tonight...)

Vector-Grunge-Burst Background

I don't know what you'd call it.  Something a little different...

Well, different for me--I see this kind of design background a lot!

Acid-Green Alien Symmetrical-Robot Pilot(s)

Another character, developed at the same time I was working on the game (but not for it, because I liked the sketch too much and decided I'd rather keep it.)
I like the symmetry of the piece and I've been trying to think of a way to develop some kind of symmetrical background.  It could also make a cool quick animation, where the body of the robot suit opens to reveal the little guys piloting inside, moving levers and pedals, and all the green lights and glows.

Radioactive Astronaut

I worked up a few characters for a game recently, these guys didn't make the cut, but are cool all the same.  The final art will be a 2-color print: black, of course, and a nice acidic "OverKill" green spot color.   The idea here was not really an astronaut per se, but a technician or someone in a hazard suit who had been irradiated to the point of becoming a being of energy, or vapor.  Like that ectoplasmic German dude from Hellboy...Johann Kraus, right?
