Here are some of my book illustrations/ story illustrations. My favorite 8D This first one is from a personal story.
The next two are works in progress from Brisingr, part of the Eragon series.
Not entirely satisfied with this one, so WIP. Planning to print it out and draw some linework into that fog possibly:
And the line drawing for the first one, I was pretty happy with it :-)
and this is the pre-photoshop version of the second. Sometimes I like to edit them more in photoshop to get more even effects, like the darkening in front, and I used a texture for the fog. Plus once I had that granite texture in I did NOT want to touch it, haha.
This is from a story called River of Names by Dorothy Allison.
From Stone Butch Blues by the amazing Leslie Feinburg
The rest are from Personal Narratives...
and for fun, some of the other pieces I'm planning for Brisingr. Some of them changed drastically XD the first thumb in each image are practically exactly the same though, that knife one I'm working on RIGHT now...
