Kelpie the water horse
Water horses are common in Celtic and Scandinavian mythology. These malicious beasts appear as beautiful and exotic horses... but if you try and ride them they'll drag them beneath the water and devour you slowly. Kelpie is the most common name but there's more than a dozen versions of the water horse.\r\n\r\n7X10" acrylic on bristol.\r\n

Art for the Rage CCG, a game about werewolf combat. It's the inhuman resources department of your friendly neighborhood evil megacorp!

A revisting of an old subject. Replacement art for Lodge of the Silver Record for the the Rage CCG.\r\n\r\nI'm going back and remastering the online releases for the Rage CCG. Mostly it's to improve the image quality in the download, but there's also some cards that need a text correction. it's been a few years now. While I'm at it however, I'm replacing the art I personally did. Most of it, quite frankly, sucked. People just didn't like it. \r\n\r\n4.5X9 Acrylic on bristol. Original for sale through my website. http://www.rainydaypaperback.com/artindex.html

replacement art for Baptism of Fire for the Rage CCG.\r\n\r\nI thought about going with the actual fire angle for this to better match name, but source material, despite the name, involves no fire. Go fig. I could have gone with much more involved scene, but the final size this will actual be used at it is about 2 inches. Cool as full body dunking would be, it would be hard to recognize that small. That its going on a tiny collectable card game card is also why its such a funny shape.\r\n\r\nAcrylic on vellum finish Bristol. 12 inches high, by 4.5 inches wide. Original for sale through my website. \r\nhttp://www.rainydaypaperback.com/artindex.html

A gift for Swiftrat for ridding me of the customer from hell.\r\n\r\nYou always wanted a scorpion so big you could feed it treats like it was a dog, right? Maybe it'll even play fetch!\r\n\r\nThe scorpion came out surprisingly well, considering I've never drawn buggies before. (though technically it's an arthropod) Reference for the scorpion came for the "world Encylopedia of Animals" by Elena Marcon & Manuel Mongini.\r\n\r\nOriginal is acrylic on vellum finish bristol, original is 7" high by 11 wide.

Original is acrylic on vellum finish bristol. 14" tall by 5.5". Art for the Doppleganger card in the Rage CCG. \r\n\r\nWhy do you wear that stupid bunny suit?\r\nWhy are you wearing that stupid man suit?\r\n\r\nRevamp of Doppleganger. Now it's more clearly an actual physical impersonation of another character. So considering what disgusting evil creatures Black Spiral Dancers are, how would they impersonate someone? Yeah, they would tear someone's skin off and wear it.

You never know who's lurking in the next cubicle...\r\n\r\nArt for the Rage CCG. original in acrylic on a 11 by 7 piece of vellum finish bristol.

In modern pop culture, the Doppleganger is generally anybody who looks similar to someone else, like the twin they never had. In older folklore, a Doppleganger is a sort of darker spirit self that attaches itself to people, whispering advice and encouragement. Though not usually the good sort.\r\n\r\nI really like the rocks in the background and the sense of motion. The werewolf looks a bit blank, but since it's effectively breathing out its soul, um, vapid is kind of to be expected. I also like that the bottom of the spirits transparent so you can see the other half of the werewolf's face through the bottom. \r\n\r\nOriginal is acrylic on vellum finish bristol. 4.5 X 14 inches. Available for sale through my website.

I'm melting.... all over you! Werewolf is sucked into the rolls of flesh on some foul fomor. Punch it and it just sucks you in to smother you. Ick!\r\n\r\nArtwork for the Rage CCG. It will be on the Gift, Tar Baby, thus the strange dimensions.\r\n\r\nI really like the werewolf's fur texture. I like the round look to the thing's arm too. it's all lumpy and twisted and melting and gross.\r\n\r\nAcrylic on vellum finish bristol. Original is 4.5X14 inches.

I was a 98 pound weakling, but thanks to the Charles Atlas method and a lot of steroids, I can make full size werewolves look like little puppies!\r\n\r\nCharacter artwork for the Rage CCG. This is the character's transformed monsterous form. Werewolf are generally about 9 feet tall, so to have a werewolf hanging off your arm like a toddler, he must be HUUUUUUUGE.\r\n\r\nI used a reference photo of a kid hanging off his fathers arm for the pose. No, clearly it was not a werewolf kid. :)\r\n\r\nAcrylic on vellum finish bristol.

Corporate Downsizing\r\nAcrylic on 11X14 vellum finish bristol. Linework was inked before painting, then touched up in a few places afterward.\r\n\r\nAlas poor Bob... I wonder who'll get his cubicle?\r\n\r\nWhen your company includes werewolves, termination of employment tends to be rather quick and bloody. Bob's hand's still on the table in a puddle of blood and it's on with business as usual already.\r\n\r\nI really like the two werewolves, and the dude that looks like Ed McMahon in the background. He looks EVIL. I like the arm with the hand resting on the guy's shoulder a lot. I like the left werewolf's pants and well defined six pack a lot. His goggles don't look as cool painted as they did in the original sketch, but oh well.

Jesus saves lepers.\r\nArmadillos get leprosy.\r\nWhen everybody gets back up in their bodies at the Armageddon, Jesus will have an army of very pissed off zombie armdillos to take out Texas!\r\n\r\n\r\nRighty-o.\r\n\r\n\r\nArmadillos, nuclear explosion, random looney ravings, instant internet classic! We'll be back to our usual diet of werewolves shortly.\r\n\r\nAcrylic on 11X14 brisol.

A hyena gazes at the setting sun, a rose clutched in one hand and the other raised before her. Dreaming of a lover who shall soon return, bidding goodbye to one, or merely remembering someone who has passed to the far shores?\r\n\r\nAcrylic on vellum finish bristol. original is 9X12 inches. The water effect was done in many, many thin washes and with a lot of smudging, as was the sky. Much liquid frisket was used to seperate the figure from the background.\r\n\r\nStrangely I think the 'background' came out better than the actual figure. I did a hyena with rose picture many moon ago, was dissatisfied with it, and swore I would return to the combo later. I think this came out relatively well.

Get more info at:\r\nhttp://www.rainydaypaperback.com/rage.html\r\n\r\nPainted in acrylics on vellum finish bristol. Original is 5.5 by 14 inches.

Detail of "pigs for the Ancestors" showing off the boar's costume and face. Traditionally New Guinea festival costumes combine natural elements: leaves, plant fibers, animal pelts, twisted cords, shells, many of them dyed or painted bright colors. Plus they smear pigment right on the skin.\r\n\r\nI really like his face, especially the tusks. He has lovely eyelashes too. Complete image can be found in my gallery.\r\n\r\nAcylics on bristol, with inked line work.

Pigs for the Ancestors, or Oinker's Big Moka.\r\n\r\nA boar in his festival finery takes two pigs to a moka ceremony, where they will slaughtered and their meat given away as part of an extravagent gift.\r\n\r\nThe boar's costume is a mishmash of the costumes from several different tribal groups. Costumes are highly individualized, so its hard to spot anything more than general trends in given groups anyway. This is actually quite subdued by New Guinea standards. \r\n\r\nUnderlying line work, ink on bristol. Painted with acrylic in many thin washes and then texture added with drybrushing and poncing. original is 9X11.

Promotional artwork for upcoming Rage set, Periphery. available online, Feb 15. 2004 http://www.rainydaypaperback.com/rage.html\r\n\r\nOriginal is 9X12. Acrylics and ink.\r\n\r\nStyle heavily influenced by Tony Diterlizzi. I realised after I painted it that it also looked like religious icons depicting Jesus and the Sacred Heart. Not a conscious influence on my part, but ended up that way.

A dhole hunter and her pack pony pause for a drink while trekking through a bamboo forest.\r\n\r\nMy first attempt at inking a sketch and then painting it. I like it! painting was done in acrylics watered down to behave like watercolors. The original line work can be seen in my sketches directory.\r\n\r\nI am most happy with the water effect. It even came out looking like it has a disrupted reflection of the horse in it and that the horse has its muzzle IN the water. The water is AWESOME. \r\n\r\nI am not totally happy with the grass and the horse's hocks. They didn't quite come out the way I had planned. However, I consider this a good first attempt at this technique.

reupload after a visit to the structured critique forum. Thanks guys! The werewolf's muzzle was shortened slightly, the shadows were made darker, and the shadows in the doorway were made lighter by applying a thin white wash.\r\n\r\nAcrylic on vellum finish bristol. A mix of washes and dry brushing. Background was done with a wash and blotting while it was wet.\r\n\r\nThe funny shape is because this artwork was done for the Rage collectable card game, which have long narrow art boxes on some cards. This appears in the online release, Intermezzo, on Lodge of the Silver Record.\r\n\r\nMore info on Rage at:\r\nhttp://www.rainydaypaperback.com/rage.html\r\n\r\nRage and associated terms are copyright White Wolf Game Studios.
