I FINISHED SOME WIZARDS FINALLY, even though the colors aren’t final in any of them. I’m sticking with this color palette, but I might play around with how the illustrations are rendered a little more (especially in the third one.) Of course I’m always more confident in my black and white work but I’ve never seen a children’s picture book with black and white images so I’ll figure it out eventually. 

The top one (Quail Wizard and Rock Wizard) is a single page vignette, while the other two (Silent Wizard and the newly redubbed Lizard Wizard) are both two-pages spreads.

Mad Max release date set for September, Canceled for PS3, XB360

Mad Max – Pre-order Bonus, Box Art & Ship Date Revealed

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today revealed new pre-order bonus details for Mad Max. All those who pre-order Mad Max will receive an additional Magnum Opus car body called “The Ripper,” which packs a powerful V8 engine, upgraded exhaust with custom off-road tires, a ramming grill and a tuned suspension so it can take on a variety of Wasteland surfaces. Also revealed today was box art for the game.

Mad Max is set to launch on September 1 in North America and September 4 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and SteamOS.

Mad Max delivers open world gameplay in a post-apocalyptic setting where cars are the key to survival. Developed by Avalanche Studios, gamers become Mad Max, a lone warrior who must fight to stay alive in The Wasteland, using vicious on-ground and vehicular combat against savage bandits. Following the theft of his iconic Interceptor, Max must align himself with a gifted, but peculiar, mechanic named Chumbucket and others to build the ultimate war vehicle as he works to escape from the dangerous Wasteland.

Tom as Max in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Photos are from the March issue of Premiere. 

What George Miller called “animal electricity” he includes in the same breath Mel Gibson, Tom Hardy and the late Heath Ledger (who died in 2008). Miller said that when he met Ledger to talk to him about Fury Road about ten years ago, he was struck by the nervousness of the actor, his mania to chew his cheeks, his comings and goings permanent. Characteristics that Gibson had thirty years earlier, and which he said he found to be identical with Tom Hardy. “To audtion these guys, I discovered that the best thing was to take them on a walk. This nervousness, they conceal it on screen, they become immobile. But it is still there. We sense it.”
No wonder that the “warriors” who played the Joker and Bane in the Dark Knight have considered taking this path. The role of danger is appealing. Hardy is built for the job, already at the head of an enviable record of gentle monsters, as if secretly auditioning for Mad Max since the beginning … Lately, with his performance in Locke, by Steven Knight, where we one only see him behind the wheel of a car, trying to respect the human being that he has become is the perfect appetizer before Fury Road. No worries. Looking at the first image, Tom has already found its place in the great orchestra.

It’s March, you know what that means… ;)

WIP of a series I’m hoping to restart. I first did this last year and Alice was the first one. I never published them just because I had to focus on other things at the time. Just wanted to make it known to the MTP fandom that I’m still here (and that I still really really love the idea of March what is happening I LVOE IT)
