These Illustrations from Children of Gaia (COG) focus on character and world design for the ongoing fantasy-epic, work-in-progress coming soon by Oneshi Press. In Rendaraia, where nature, magic, and civilization have long coexisted, strangers of unknown origin have begun to invade. As war rages between the Terran interlopers and Rendaraian natives, the hundreds of unique cultures are now subjected to devastation as their planet is ravaged by an imperial society that has its own rapacious needs back in its own politically divided home. But there is more at work than battles fought over land rights or culture: Rendaraia and its invaders are linked more deeply than any of them realize. Children of Gaia is the story of thousands, told through the eyes of those living through the most turbulent years of a collision of worlds. As some fight to preserve their way of life, others strive to create new traditions, some vie for power, and many battle just to stay alive.
These Illustrations from PACK focus on character and world design for the ongoing gritty-vigilante, work-in-progress coming soon by Oneshi Press. PACK is a costume crime fighter/vigilante justice comic book about a pack of 6 dogs and 1 man with zero tolerance for abuse of the innocent. Join Patience and his dogs of virtue in this comic-book noir as they prowl the darkest alleys of the Brooklyn night. These lawless back-alley vigilantes make their own justice as they put criminals under the fang. In such dark times, wrought with corruption and violence, the line between hero and villain is blurred. To the PACK it’s simple: theirs is the only acceptable violence, and their retribution is as swift as it is fierce.
