Storn's art for swipin'!


Something a little different for me... I haven't done a pilot and craft shot in about 4 years... I think I did a cut-down millenium falcon awhile back. The patron supplied Macross reference and a bit of modern pilot shots... I combined the two modes of reference into this shot. Hope y'all like.

I also played around with ink line, by inking the pilot, but leaving the ship a bit softer (color right onto the pencils themselves)... letting be a little softer and hopefully, push back into space a bit. As one of the things I liked from the Macross reference was pilot and plane were close in color... and to separate the two, I let the ink line diffrentiate the two similar color schemes.

It is time for another Ten Ton Studios challenge. This week, it is the Phantom, that one-o-the first of masked men in striped underwear. Well. I'm a sucker for pulp imagery. And I strived to bring that pulp excitement and action to my contribution. Let me know if I succeeded or not.

I also have not been painting traditionally in a long time. So, out came the acrylics on this one. Although I screwed up the sky royally, and after getting back from Philly, I quickly slapped down oil paint on the sky. It still ain't where I want it to be, but the stuff had to dry for it to be put down on the scanner in time for the contest.

Come check out the other Phantom entries. Vote for your fav!!!



It is time again for Top Ten Studios weekly challenge. Which is an excuse to work in some paint for me, as the art HAS to be done in some traditional format (ie, not digital!).

This week, I got to choose as I won the Phantom contest last week. I chose Clea: Mistress of the Mystic Arts and invited everyone to re-imagine her outfit.

The entries are a bit low on the numbers side, but the quality is really, really high this week. As I write this, I don't even have one vote yet. I got schooled. Josh really deserves this weeks win... he hit it out the park with his amazing angle on Clea.

So. Come check out many awesome Cleas here:

Vote for one if so inclined.



First Post
Wow, what an awesome collection Storn. You are amazing, I'm so glad Ilium pointed me here from the d20 Modern forum. Count me as another admirerer!
Thanks so much for sharing.


Time for more artwork!!!

First up, a buffy-esque type character.


Then a more superhero/villain brick who don't know his own strength.


And a enigmatic wind/ice/cyrokinetic


... and lastly, a bowl with a mango. Just because I felt like showing it. This was an impromptu birthday present for a friend. I had bought the mango just to eat, but once I put in my bowl, I loved the colors. It is hour and 1/2 oil painting, very sketchy. The blue behind the bowl was my wadded up fleece sweatshirt on my drafting table.

Time for some more Death Tribble commissions. First up, Aquatic Evil. Guppy gone bad. Bad Guppy, bad!


Then, in DT's game, Doc Destroyer has a scientist sidekick, who is asian. He said (I'm paraphrasing); "Let's do an asian with no dragons, no martial artsy-ness, none of the usual trappings."


Lastly, the gist was "give me Phantom Lady, but dark costume". I assumed from the Codename, I could work in some energy, light power sorta sfx.
