PEN & INK MADNESS!!!!

So, I went to IlluXCon last weekend and met some of my favorite artists and got to hang out with a few of em too! Highest on my list was my absolute favorite illustrator of all time, IAN MILLER!!! You really should check out his work, it's amazing... I mean, look at THIS!


Unfortunately, the picture I had someone take of me with Ian Miller somehow got erased from my stupid iPhone, so I have no hard proof, EXCEPT for the Ian Miller original I bought and have in my posession..... my first of (hopefully) many Ian Miller originals. Here it is... with my cat....



















Coolest thing of all is that he seemed to really dig my work too, which is awesome, seeing as how his work has been a huge inspiration to me since seeing it in the pages of Warhammer books back in High School.

Anyways, one of the things I showed him was the piece below, which I just finished inking. Next will be to start painting it up in Photoshop. Once again I think I want to try to retain as much of the linework in the final image as possible.

Sweet, I'm very envious that you met Ian Miller... and I'm pissed that I still can't find my copy of Eaters of the Dead with his illustration.

Great piece Sean. My favorite part is the stance on that dog. It is incredibly drawn!
