Twenty-Four Months at Sea

Here are some older concept images from two different portions of a large and pretty broad story. First up are two views of the deep, dark jungle. Its permanently night, and there's something else stalking around these parts...
Click to enlarge them.
These images are from the same jungle story as the paintings on my website.

...After some fantastic escapes and tough choices, we come to a big, lumbering, never-say-die robot that lays siege to a man-o-war ship and its scurvy crew.

This salty dog endures the robot with ease, but not so for his addiction.

My Girl is the Queen of the Savages

A sketch from PDX done with Conte', king of all the crayons...Click the pic to see the full sized goodness.
"My girl is the queen of the savages,
Instead of money we trade yams and cabbages,

She doesn't use a fork,
I don't think I'll go back to New York."

The Madness at Main Line

"...Like all the racial groups, they [the Native Americans] have their own table and keep all the seats for themselves. They don’t want to look soft, so Poncho’s business is now theirs. He’ll loose his seat, and if you don’t own a seat, you don’t eat."

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

These salty dogs are each part of a larger image, which I will probably post up tomorrow. By drawing the figure separately, I can pose them in a more natural way rather than trying to fit the background guys into the remaining open space. But the down side is that I eventually have to cover up some nice details. So here they are individually... and yep, these guys are also ink-n-brush work. Click to zoom.
