Coming into to the home stretch - I'm headed to Seattle for PAX on Friday morning, and this is due Sunday at midnight, so I think I'll be submitting my entry tomorrow evening. It's been a fun process, and there'll probably be *one* more update, but we're nearing the end. This started out as a pencil sketch, then was inked with rapidograph, then painted with acrylic inks. From there I scanned it and adjusted it pretty significantly in Photoshop.
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
