Spyro the Dragon

Spyro the Dragon.  I have such fond memories of playing the first three games of this series.  I had a great time drawing this little purple dragon that it made me want to dust off the old disks and play them again.

The Mighty Thor

A mock cover of a "Thor" comic book. I built the cover elements in photoshop off of a classic Thor comic cover. The background was a Kirby Krackle brush that I got from Pascal Verhoef over on deviantART: http://pascal-verhoef.deviantart.com/art/Kirby-Krackle-Brushes-165359770

Head on over to my Bēhance portfolio to see my process on this illustration, from pencils to the finished cover:https://www.behance.net/gallery/18586023/The-Mighty-Thor

I will be releasing the template for this cover later tonight over on my tumblr account for anyone else who would like to make their own classic Thor comic cover: http://davebardin.tumblr.com/
