Battle Tribes! At Designer Con 2016 and Beyond!

The Battle Tribes goodness keeps coming from my pals at Spy Monkey Creations! One of their exclusives debuting at Designer Con 2016 (November 19 & 20) is the Eternal Adventurer, an homage to a certain iconic 80′s barbarian!
 

 
The Spy Monkey crew had me design the logo on the Eternal Adventurer’s shield and remix the Battle Tribes logo with even more 80′s flavor–this is going to be used as a header card for the Designer Con debut figures:
 

 
But that’s not all! I designed a few more shield logos, which you can see on these reptilian badboys (these figures available for purchase NOW):
 


 
By the way, if you’ve been keeping up with the Battle Tribes releases, you can now recreate my Battle Tribes illustration which is exactly what the folks at Spy Monkey did! I love it!

It’s a blast…

If you’ve never heard of Glyos by Onell Design, I’ll tell you everything you need to know: it’s a line of bad-ass designer toys with interchangeable parts, and you can build anything that your parts library and imagination can cook up, and you should go buy a bunch. I’ve been meaning to draw one of the characters from this franchise for a while, so at last, here’s a little something–Scar Pheyden of the Glyos System:

I colored this piece a bit differently than I usually do. Rather than taking a lot of time to make super-clean selections with a lot of meticulously separated layers, I did this quick and dirty, and just cleaned things up as I went. I think it saved me a bit of time, but I’m not sure how much.

Also: I talk a lot about trying to drawing more dynamic pieces, so hopefully I’ll be able to keep producing pieces like this, which are more reminiscent of random comic book panels rather than super-static character stances.
