Here, late one evening, Tyra and Marthin set up camp deep within a mysterious forest. As Tyra sets up a dry, cozy place for them to sleep, Marthin casts spells by the fire, assuring that their campfire will stay alight and warm without the need for rekindling through the night, and setting a couple of protective spells about as well, to assure they will rest unthreatened. I thought it would be fun if, this deep in the magical woods, there is a type of nocturnal luminescent moth that is attracted to spell-casting. As Marthin casts his spells, these beautiful, silent little bugs draw near, glowing prettily, feeding off of the energy conjured by Marthin's magic. Tyra is bemused as one flies before her, watching her curiously. Characters belong to Marie-Laure Cabot and Frederik Filliaert.

A couple of favorites from Sons of Anarchy - Chibs, Gemma, Bobby Elvis, and Tig. These folks are both challenging and a fun to illustrate - may have to do it again some time. Happy New Year! -Mel Find me on...

The poster was a collaboration - fleshed out in a rough sketch by the concept's creator, Mike Winn. From there, I created the clean, final line art for the piece, colored it, and comped the final poster layout.

This is the proof-of-concept first page for a graphic novel project to-be whose concept I’ve been tinkering around with in my head for a good long while now. Will be curious to see where it goes, as I’d love to bring the story into its own. -Mel Thu, 22 May 2014 03:56:11 -0400 For Cardassia http://shadowness.com/MelMillerArt/for-cardassia <a href="http://shadowness.com/MelMillerArt/for-cardassia"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/372814/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Deep Space Nine fanart of one of my favorite species from the series, which has a tendency to spawn some of my favorite characters as well.

This project was a particularly awesome challenge, as not only was I going for a classic pin-up look (Even dated the result as '42, for kicks) but the uniform details needed to be as spot-on as I could manage them, as well. In the end, I'm very pleased with the result. Sassy and classy - I think we achieved both ;) Fri, 16 Sep 2011 21:24:52 -0400 Adventures in Fishbowl Space http://shadowness.com/MelMillerArt/adventures-in-fishbowl-space <a href="http://shadowness.com/MelMillerArt/adventures-in-fishbowl-space"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/395261/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />With an army of laser bees.

My Neighbor Totoro is an all-time favorite of mine. Thought I’d do a little tribute. Wed, 04 Dec 2013 11:12:48 -0500
