Brody's Ghost 3 Sneak Peek by markcrilley Brody's Ghost 3 Sneak Peek by markcrilley
Sorry I haven't uploaded anything for so long! I plan to get more active here on DA in the months ahead. To begin with here's a sneak peek from Brody's Ghost book 3, which should be out early next year.

I thought folks would enjoy seeing the progress of this image from pencils through inks to final art. My goal with this picture was to create a three-dimensional effect by way of darkening the foreground elements and "washing out" the buildings in the distance.

You can get the first two Brody's Ghost volumes at Amazon.

Book 2: [link]
Thanks for your support! ~Mark

I like the way the buildings in the distance "wash out"
the one called "final art" is painted digitally, right?

are you really THE Mark Crilley? OMG! I'm such a huge fan! I just now found your 1st volume at School, and I loved it! ^^ I'm another really, young artist who has been following some of your 'how to draw' videos. Its because of YOU that I'm drawing so much better anime! I'm so glad to sort of meet you! ^^
