Too many irons in the fire

I've been working on a bunch of different things, and I can't seem to finish anything. One of these days I'm going to have a lot of new art to show, but for now you'll have to settle for cropped previews.

  1. Hah yeah I guess these will do... ;)

    Are these sneak peeks of some future projects of yours, or just "doodles".
    The light is awesome as usual!

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh man! Are you working on your book? Is that what those are from? I am really excited about that thing, assuming that is what you are doing. Other than that: great variety in styles. Keep it up, I always look forward to your next post.

    1. I am working on it, but it's very slow going. Some of these images are supposed to fill roles in it, but I have to do many, many such images before I will even come close to finishing.

    2. Don't get me wrong, I am cool with you taking your time to finish that book. If it takes you another year but the illustrations in it have greater didactic value I will celebrate you even more for taking the extra time and effort to put in it. I am convinced most people share that sentiment.

      There is too much half-baked and badly researched stuff being published every day. One of the downsides of the rise of desktop publishing is that everything is made faster and easier and as a result, less care is taken of the end product. While DP has greatly improved the way books look and made them a lot cheaper to make, too, it has also led to a decline in content quality.

      I am really glad you take an approach that ensures quality. Best of luck with it!
