BLOOD WITNESS: Illustration, Steven Aproaches 2


This is another scene from a book that I was commissioned to illustrate titled Blood Witness http://bloodwitness.com .

The person emerging from the water was a recently turned vampire that was left to die in the sun.


The author of the book did not like my last drawing so I scrapped my last idea and went with this one.

BLOOD WITNESS: Illustration, Steven Approaches

WELL YOU WIN SOME, AND YOU LOSE SOME. UNFORTUNATELY DAVE DID NOT LIKE THIS DRAWING SO IT WON'T BE ON HIS WEBSITE.

The person emerging from the water was a recently turned vampire that was left to die in the sun. I thought that the lillipads, the frog, and the bloated hand would be a nice addition to this scene.

BLOOD WITNESS: Illustration, Steven Emerges.

The person emerging from the water in the illustration was a recently turned vampire that was left to die in the sun. He quickly went to the bottom of a pond to escape the sunlight. As he emerged from the pond he was extremely pissed off.

I added the water weeds and the leech on his forehead as extra effect.

My art is featured on an authors website.

My art was featured on a Pod-Caster, Podio-Book Caster, authors website. His name is Mark Nemcoff and his podio-books are, are, well simply incredible. Diary of a Madman is brilliantly twisted and incredible. It is the most amazing journey into madness that I ever experienced. Please click this link to see my feature http://pacificcoasthellway.com/2009/06/08/diary-of-a-madman-artwork-by-shane-lees . Keep reading to learn more about Mark Nemcoff.


Recently I listened to the best Podio-Book that I've ever listened to about a man that becomes obsessed with killing serial killers. The author Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff

http://markyoshimotonemcoff.com/Books/DOM does the narration of the book and his dictation is absolutely superb. He makes the book sound as exciting and twisted as it is.

The podio-book can be downloaded at the link that I provided above or here -----> http://www.podiobooks.com/title/diary-of-a-madman at podiobooks.com .

However let me warn you now. That podio-book is not for the faint of heart. The books contains extreme, extreme violence and Nemcoff gives fair warning at the beginning of each chapter that he reads.


My illustration shown to the left is of a scene in the book that involves a pen and an eye. I held out my own pen as I illustrated it.

Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff (Face book link) is by far one of the best authors ever and his podcasts are absolutely riveting. His other podio-book Number One With Bullet I suggest everybody should check that out http://www.podiobooks.com/title/number-one-with-a-bullet .

BY THE WAY. THE BEST THING ABOUT PODIO-BOOKS, THEY'RE ALL FREE.
