SEPTIC ISLE BADGE
























This is artwork for a badge that Andy Winter is making to promote Septic Isle's appearance in Previews. Andy wanted to use the cover art, but from the way i composed the cover, the face of the main character, Jacob Marley, wouldn't be seen properly on a badge (also, the top of his head didn't exist!) so i made this up with the original art, drawing in the top of his head in Photoshop with (gasp!) a wacom tablet. Turned out okay actually. Since it's only going to be a small image, i thought it best to keep the colours simple and graphic.

That is really sweet, is it one of those wee small badges or fun size birthday card ones?

nice art.

Thanks lads,

Naw Luke, it was just a run of the mill wacom tablet, no fancy Cintiqs up in this house. I've had it ages, but never really use it. It's handy to have, in cases like these tho.
