Continuing with part 5 is an update that was a bit surprising. This is a card entitled Brother James Xavier done for the FFG card game for Call of Cthulhu. The set this card is for is the set Lost Rites which is scheduled for release July 2012. Seeing as the set isn't out yet I was not expecting this illustration to be a part of the massive update. However, quite serendipitously I got an e-mail from my AD letting me know the card was previewed on FFG's site. Thus here is the card ready and raring to go for the massive update.
As far as the art goes I think the part I enjoyed most about this one was the face. I had a great model in a friend of mine Jim and I think he really helped shape the character.
That is all for part 5 stay tuned for part 6 which will once again feature some more L5R card work.
I know I had linked to this before but I thought I would upload it anyway. This is the full version of the card that FFG had uploaded to their website.
Again check the flavor text it is pretty awesome.
Normally I like to show my process before I show my finish but in this instance I was not able to. But I decided to show them anyhow.
These are some of the studies I worked up for the card Expulsion from the Order.
The top left is the value version and the rest are different color tests. As you can tell from the finish, the study that was chosen was the one on the bottom right.
Hope everyone enjoys seeing my studies.
This is a card I illustrated for FFG's Call of Cthulhu card game. It is entitled Expulsion from the Order. As usual it is painted using Corel Painter.
The card is for an upcoming card set. You can read a bit on the set on Fantasy Flight's website. The sample card they displayed for the article on the site just happened to be this one. Which was really awesome to see.
The card looks great and I really love the flavor text they gave the card. "We are no longer in need of your services...but you may still be of some value."
I hope everyone likes it and don't forget to pick up a copy when it is released.
