Between projects

Well, this marks the last of the illustrations for Sons of Liberty, which means I'm officially between projects once Joshua rubber stamps this one. I've got a few in the lurch, but in the mean time I'm kind of at a loss for what to apply my artistic energies to next.

At any rate, the last illustration is of Francis Marion, aka "Swamp Fox". Apparently there was a Disney show about him that I completely missed either because I was oblivious or because I'm too young. Whichever.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, even if I loathe doing one point perspective.


I figured since I have time to work on my own projects, I might as well finish that illustration for Thou Art But A Warrior that I've had kicking around for a Dog's Age. All that was really left was to finish putting in yummy patterns.

I didn't go as hog-wild as I would have liked to, but only because I plan on putting in a background that will probably have tile work. I'm beginning to think illustrating my own book isn't so much about achieving high production values cheaply as it is about getting a chance to draw pretty Islamic patterns.

But hey, it's all good.

I'm happy with how it's turning out, even if I'm kind of angsting that she might be too white. Hmm.
