Just a quickie messing around with a sketch I had done with inks.

Oil #5

He ain't giant, and he ain't jolly, he's just simply green.

Concept sketches...

These are from a game that I was working on for a very famous company that I can't mention. I did a ton of stuff for the game but it will never see the light of day unfortunately. But I have a hell of a lot of art for it since I was the only artist working on the game!!!

Holiday Sketches

Last time I visited Bornholm (Small danish island), About 30 years ago, I met with an electric fench for the first time. As I didn't know any better I peed on it - Well, take it from some one who knows, don't do that. This time around I decided to do a bit of drawing instead

SFG: new work

New Work from the new guy.

My name's Mike, and I'm new to the board.
I'm relatively new to being an illustrator-for-hire. I've mostly been doing vector art, but am trying to expand my skill set. We'll see how that works out.
This is a piece I recently did for fun.

Hope you like. Happy Wednesday.

Intro of me.

Hey Everybody!

Just wanted to drop in and introduce myself: My name is Dane Ault. I'm a relative newb to the illustration world, and I hope to learn a lot as part of this group of awesome people.
As a way of introduction, here's the newest illo that I've finished.

My latest assignment: deadline 25.09.09 09AM

The client, a small newspaper in Norway wanted me to visualize their desire to faithfully stand up for their opinions at all times.
After some thinking I landed on the idea of this one person walking in the opposite direction to the rest of the crowd.
I often tend to use warm colors in my work, because I'm just a simple earth color liking guy.
When they first saw my illustration they really liked it. But after two hours when the the printing guys had seen it, they rang me and told me to change the colors to blue or green or something, because my red hues would not work well on rough newspaper! Just use the live color function in illustrator, they told me, and you'll do the makeover in no time.

It is probably something wrong with my illustrator skills, but I spent hours last night trying to make a decent change from warm to cool colors and I'm still not sure if it looks good or not. But I know that If they call me again to make more changes I'm going to do a Brad Holland. In one of his lectures he told us about an argue he once had with a client, and he finished his story by saying: "Finally we came to an agreement; I did not change the illustration and they did not print it".
