    Default From the Hand of the King; Dark Tower Artwork

    This used to be just for the Creed thing I was doing on my wall, but I've done more stuff that I thought would be good to include here. :3

    ~~~

    The Gunslinger's Creed
    This is done on the wall. I love the Creed, and wanted to design a gunslinger's emblem to go with it. I chose the crossed guns and a rose connecting them, representing the joined fate of the Gunslinger's of Eld, and the Dark Tower.

    Painted Creed and Pencil rose/gun emblem.


    Close up of the rose/gun emblem.


    Inked linework of the emblem.


    Inked base colours of the emblem.




    Eye of the King
    The sigul of the Crimson King fascinates me. This was done with red paint on the wall.

    Paint on my wall.




    Vector Art
    Vector versions of some symbols that I will be using in the future, so they can be resized as I need.

    The Eye of the King, digital version.


    Unfound.




    Door to Can'-Ka No Rey
    An Unfound Door leading from the Mohaine Desert to Can'-Ka No Rey, the field of roses in which the Dark Tower stands. The gunslinger is one of my own design, a combination of Roland, and Justice from the anime Afro Samurai.

    Pencil rough sketch.


    Linework, i actually redrew the image because i didnt want to go over the original.


    Inked version.




    The Dark Tower
    The process I went through to create my own design for the Dark Tower. I chose a classical structure reminiscent of European castles.

    Tower concept sketches 1.


    Tower concept sketches 2.


    Chosen tower design, pencil.


    Tower design, line work.




    Doors
    Random sketches involving doors in some way.

    Unfound door sketches.


    The Boy.




    Roses
    Random sketches involving roses.

    Gun + Rose


    Rose




    Playing Cards
    The current progress I have made on the Dark Tower playing card set I am designing. Inspired by the tarot cards depicted in the Dark Tower prequel comic books. The royals are going to portray important characters from the series. I decided to use different suits to give the deck a more thematic feel.

    The Suits; Guns (Spades), Roses (Hearts), Doors (Diamonds), Keys (Clubs)


    Ace of Roses


    Tower of Roses (ace theme variant)


    Tower of Guns


    Tower of Doors


    Tower of Keys


    Joker Pair 1; Red Joker, the Guardians


    Joker Pair 1; Black Joker, the Wizard's Rainbow


    Joker Pair 2; Red Joker, Maerlyn's Grapefruit


    Joker Pair 2; Black Joker, Black Thirteen


    ~~~

    Critique/suggestions are welcome. A also plan on doing a full sized door on either the wall or the roof hahaha

    Dude, you should totally cut out those sections of drywall and save them.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I've updated the first post with a lot of artwork I have done lately, both digital and traditional. Please check it out! C:

    PS: If a mod sees this, could they please change the thread title to "From the Hand of the King; Dark Tower Artwork". Thanks!!
    All hail the King;
    He of the Crimson Eye,
    The Lord of Spiders.
    Hail Discordia.

    Wow--those are fantastic! I really love the effect of the Crimson King "blood" dripping on the wall. I wish I had a designated wall to paint DT-related stuff on.

    I registered just to say awesome work C~Dog, I love the cards, you should totally make a full deck of Dark Tower playing and/or tarot cards, I'd buy em.

    EDIT: I just noticed part of your Creed is wrong, the first part should read:

    I do NOT aim with my "hand".
    He who aims with his "hand" has forgotten the face of his father.
    I aim with my "eye".

    Just mixed up hand and eye is all.

    Any update on the playing cards? Anyone else wanna finish what C~Dog started? I'd love to have some cool custom deck of Dark Tower inspired playing cards.

    EDIT: OK, just to show my lack of skills, here's my attempt at doing one playing card: http://img857.imageshack.us/i/8gunv3.jpg/

    What the hell? Who deleted my post? All I did was ask if there was an update from C~Dog on the playing cards. Worthless fucking mods. And I was just about to edit my post to show my own attempt, but fuck you now.

    No one deleted your post. It was put in Mod queue as you had less than 5 posts at the time and the forum settings do that with posts that have images in them to greatly reduce spam.
    I approved your post and you and others should see it now. I understand your frustration, but believe you reacted a tad harshly.
