More 'framed ink', ...and a ghost house!




So, three pieces before the weekend:
.The two in black and white are still from 'framed ink'.
.The color piece is an illustration I did years ago for a project my friend Aksel Studsgarth put together in his Copenhagen based company, Ghost VFX. The designs were about an abandoned house, exterior and interior. This one is from the kitchen, with all its 30's appliances and details. Fun film to work for!

-Thanks Jesse.

-Thanks a lot Kendra. Given the nature of the book there's a wide range of shots in it, from very low intensity to the very top. I'm glad you like what you are seeing!

-Merci beaucoup monsieur Mate!

-Muchas gracias Abey

-Hi Jeremy, thanks for your visit and comment. Definitely one of the things I'm always trying to achieve in my compositions is to get the audience involved in the action of the story, at the level of intensity they should, depending on where we are at in the narration.
Hope all is well!

-Sure thing Rob, and thanks for your comment!

-Thanks a lot Craig

-Hi James, it was going to be out on September 1st but apparently it's been advanced to August the 16th. The official presentation will be at the end of July at the san Diego ComiCon.
And thanks for your interest!

-Thanks Alina!

-Thank you very much for your visit and comment Raluca!

-Hey Ken, yeah, I'm excited about that too, I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think about it when you get it!

-Thank you very much Finn!
