Rattle of Bones. Concept Design

At long last I am releasing a personal project of mine based off of the poplar R.E.Howard Character Solomon Kane.Just before my daughter was born a buddy of mine challenged me to do some comic panels based off of a story that I liked. Now life takes you on all kinds of ups and downs but I never forgot about the challenge and I always told myself that I would get back to it. So,this past year, I decided to stop mulling it over and start doing it for real.
Characteristically of me, I decided to take the challenge to the next level and not only story board the tale but also Concept Design the project, and I figured that it was a good way to revamp my portfolio in the process.

Over the past couple of months I have created story boards, an Animatic, Character Designs, Prop Weapon and Environment Concepts.
This project has been a lot of fun to do and I'm glad that I did it.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments as I am always glad to respond and get feedback.

I even had to throw in a Logo for good Measure!


  1. Wow, absolutely brilliant work! I'd kvetch about Kane not having black hair or not being dressed all in black, but it's all so well done technically.

  2. Thank you sir! I guess I took some liberties with the character but he's mostly in Black and even though the story takes place before his trip to Africa (or so the internet Timeline claims)I HAD to give him M'Longa's JuJu Staff. Absolutely HAD too. I popped by your main Blog and it is so nice to read about Howards work from a true fan's perspective. The Movies just keep getting worse!!!
