Hello all, I have been lurking here for a little while and decided it was time to get an account and start posting. I wanted to put up some of my artwork since I am starting to work in the game industry as an Illustrator some. If anyone is interested in commissions or knows of a writer or publisher looking for a hungry artist, please give me a nod. Thanks!


This is a concept sketch of an assassin I worked up.


Isn't he cute? Just a sketch that turned out to my liking. I think he has found a home already. :)


This is the cover to the Darksun 3.5 Resource Trembling Plains coming soon from Athas.org
Darksun is such a cool world, it deserves more time in the spotlight. :)

That's all for now. More to come soon. I will be making this a regular thread the best I can. Let me know what you think, yeah? Even if it's a constructive criticism it will help me to be better next time. That's the only way I will get to where I want to be as an artist. Thanks all! Hope you like.

Xyanthon--Thanks! It's a scanned loose pencil sketch and colored in Photoshop7 with some specialty and homemade brushes.

Jdvn1 and Lalato--Thanks again! More coming soon.

More pics from the past. I am working on some new stuff today and through the weekend, but with the holiday festivities and such not sure how much I will get posted until next week.


This is a piece I did for a Savage Worlds adventure called "Fate of the Terra Ariel" by Grubman


An older Darksun inspired piece that I will probably redo at a later date. It serves as a space holder on a personal project for the time being.


A previously unpublished piece produced for Dragonlance.


An X-men related character that I thought would be a cool addition to my own version of the Exiles in a fan fic I am working out. (Copycat and Exiles are property of Marvel Comics)


Another image from the same idea. This is an aged and even more wisened Beast. He is also a former Samurai and leader of the X-men. (Beast and X-men copyright Marvel Comics)


An old sketch I did for a personal project. I still like the concept quite a bit though.


What happens to cherubs when they grow up? They join Michael's militia, right?


Another sketch with some age on it, but I still like the pose and character. :)


And last, but not least, a fairly recent Athasian Halfling sketch.

There you go. Some more looks at my sketchbook. When I get the chance to post some new stuff I will, but it may be a week or so. Until then!

It's good to see some of the sketches with some of the more finished stuff to see how you progress. Cool stuff. Thanks for posting. :)

Hanging in there. Better than the alternative.
You have a very slick style! Do you have a website with more stuff?

Thanks again all!
The only website I have up at the moment is at www.harshweb.com
Some of these images are there, but some are not. I am constantly working on new materials and the website, but I want to finish the series of pages I am editting now before going live with them online. Should be up within a month as I continue to pursue a professional career in artwork. Thanks!

Great Drawings

Hey Harsh I really dig your drawings!
My favorite are the assasin, the water monster, and the Halfling.

The water monster reminds me of the Kopru monster from the Isle of Dread module (1980s).
I really like the hook and the rendering on that piece.

Thanks Mortimer! Much appreciated to be...er...appreciated. ;)
I am working on some commissions currently, but will post new stuff as soon as possible. I am available for character sketches and commissions alike if anyone is interested PM or email me for more details.
Thanks!

I like your pencil stuff. It seems a bit stronger than the color or inked stuff. There is a solidity to the pencil, whereas the other things seem to be a bit sketchy and you are searching for an approach that suits.

NOTE: This is NOT advice to stop coloring or inking.... quite the contrary... keep pushing!!!! But see if you can't approach some of your pencil technique and weave it into other things... after all, pencil is often the foundation for all other art... at least 2d art.

Wow, thanks Storn! Much appreciated advice, and I totally agree. The more I show and the more I look at my own work with a critic's eye, the more I see exactly what you are saying. It's all about finding my 'voice' at the moment, but I always come back to pencil work. Thanks for the nod. It's only with this type of critique that I can become a better artist as a whole.

Thanks Ferret! I assume you mean the sea creature dude with the hook? lol, He's become a favorite for some reason. Working on more to post this weekend. Keep checking back!

In other news...
I am in need of some new programs (InDesign or Adobe Acrobat for starters) and a graphic tablet (I would really like to have the new Cintiq from Wacom!). Any help there would be appreciated either through advice or commissions (or donations--I'm not proud), or just conversation about pros and cons of each subject. Any (constructive) input is appreciated! Thanks you guys. EN World is my new favorite place to hang out. Thanks for making me feel so welcome!

Well, I obviously haven't had a chance to update, but I will as soon as I can. It may be a few days still. Most everything I am working on is for commissions, and I can't put it up. :(
I'll get there though. I have a lot of personal projects jotted down, just no time atm.

I'm still looking for more paid commissions if anyone is in a game or writing a Story Hour and wants images to enhance their experience.
Book illustrations are always welcome as well!

New Dragon stuff coming as soon as I get the ok. ;)

Til then,
Harsh!

New Artwork!

I'm back again and this time I have the go ahead to show my latest work. Sceaptune Games is set to launch the first of a series of adventure books that I did some artwork in. Cool people and cool games. Can't beat that. I had a lot of fun doing this set and look forward to doing more.
Anyone else interested in my work (www.harshweb.com) please feel free to contact me.

Man, those are sweet. i especially like the Stormblade one that you posted on 12/30/06.

Of course, I also like the Greeter and the Cover in your latest post.

I haven't checked out your website, but what does a comission cost? If you are looking for inspiration, I write for free here at ENWorld (links in sig). It's a free read, if you care for reading stories in search of concepts to draw. Depending on your price for commission ... I might also have you draw up something for another project that I am working on.
