Some new stuff for fun and work Newest stuff up top. Hope you enjoy. Characters were about 3 hours apiece. The environment took about 3 days all told. A higher res version of the enviro piece at my blog. http://raylederer.blogspot.com. Thanks for looking...
This illustration is from a design brief for a book called Green by Jay Lake that is due to be published soon by Tor books. Dan Dos Santos has the honor of illustrating the real cover and it's a beauty. I'm fortunate enough to have had some great input from Dan, Scott Fischer, Greg Manchess, Rebbecca Guay, Donato, Boris and Julie, Dave Palumbo and the rest of the IMC alumni of 2008. Thanks all! I could not have progressed as far as I did without your help and encouragement!
****UPDATED***: I did a bit of tweaking to the legs to get rid of the heavy handed musculature. Not a big change but I think it helps some. Thanks for the input everyone!
