Dusk Kiss by AndyHep Dusk Kiss by AndyHep
An illo from Dancer's In The Dusk, Changeling supplement from White Wolf CCP North America. (C) White Wolf 2009

(Edit - I had critique on for this image, but as it was a commission and is now in print, I think it more appropriate to disable that function...)

Love the characters and the pose. I too thought it was a cross between a pug and a frog but that's why i liked it myself.

Great work! Would you consider joining the painted-ladies group and adding your work there?

Very good I really like the mushroom backdrop. Always enjoy your pencil lines showing through the art :)

Wow- really bold use of the negative space man!
And you can't go wrong with fishnets either, but the piece de resistance has gotta be froggy=D (is he really trying to get the tongue in on the first kiss?)
Nah there really is a wonderful tension between the two. Well done.

heh, actually its me using full page space for a half page illo - there's text to go in the upper half, basically, but I wanted to bleed it up out of the half page box, and the AD was happy with that. It was fun to do this one, although I intended for it to be a touch less cartoony.

Thanks Tim! One of my recent favourites. I'd love to play the new Changeling sometime, but just don't have the chance nowadays :(

My first thought was "OOooo!" the blank area is just screaming for a frame! cool idea. You did an exceptional job on the shading and the crisp lines are awesome too. I'm gonna have to fave this one. I'd really like to see a photo of it if you ever put a frame on it.

You know I very rarely put up my own work (says the guy with 5 of his own pictures in his livingroom - ok, ok, they're old oils and me slopping paint around messily...) but this one might make it into a frame someday. In a way its a little shameful, and it goes for most artists I know, but once done most of our work sits in a drawer or on a hard drive, gathering dust.

As does mine. By no means am I knocking your other works, but this one really caught my eye. I see a frame that is very ornate...but that's just me, I think the style and the quality of your design merits some showing it off a bit. Hope you post it if you frame it.

Hah, cute! I wonder, is he going to turn into a prince? ;) As charming as the frog is, my favorite part is definitely the background. I love the rendering of the mushrooms and skulls, and how the bottoms of the latter fade into shadow. Awesome stuff! :D

Was really concentrating on values in this one, and still think I could have pushed that envelope. But we're our worst critics, eh? Cheers!

Awesome! i love the lighting effects because you can feel that each material, each texture is different. The details on the girl's crown and outfit are so well done. And off course the soft background it's just what the scene needs to set a perfect atmosphere.
Wonderful piece!

I can't critique properly but...
it's a wonderful picture :D
points of interest to me:
-the frog looks, honestly, more like a pug (the dog) than a frog or a toad.
-the sweet face of the girls seems to me to be a little too sweet for the sexy outfit she's wearing.

That's all, hope I helped :D
