Nose Job

I started this piece last night. It's based on a scene from Roman Polansky's Chinatown. Lately I've been thinking a lot about Noir. I've been reading The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, and I've been on the look out for good old Noir movies.

Most importantly, I want to start incorporating elements of Noir into my fantasy work. I've always loved dark fantasy, but it always looks like it has a heavy goth influence. Not that I have any problem with gothic influence, but a Noir influence could set my work apart. Plus, adding Noir elements to other genres has a lot of great potential, ie Blade Runner or Wanted.

Hopefully I'll be able to develop this idea before someone way more well known than me turns it into a movie or comic or something.

Drow vs Mind Flayer

Here is a painting I did over the course of the last week. It is for a book cover art contest put on by the art director of Wizards of the Coast.
