The Watchful Sea - Sequentials by NicolasRGiacondino
The Watchful Sea - Sequentials
Hello, dear watchers and watcherettes!

I usually try and update all that might be interested in my artwork of the projects I complete and what I'm up to or where to find more of it. But sometimes, being as busy as I am, I can let things slip which I shouldn't have. This is such a time.

The Watchful Sea is a one-shot I illustrated this year. The book is sold through the independent publisher's website at Attackosaur and is written by the talented Martin Smith and drawn by yours truly as I mentioned before.
The synopsis says it all: "A man with a terrible secret finds a grotesque creature in the Atlantic ocean, a being with the ability to read the thoughts of anyone who comes into contact with it. Set in deepest, darkest Wales, The Watchful Sea is a ghoulish tale of terror and obsession. What's not to like? The comic has already garnered some very positive reviws and has a lovecraftian atmosphere that I'm sure many of you will appreciate.

These are an example of the interior artwork of this tale, which I hope you enjoy! As many of you know, I love working in black and white and this story gave me not only that opportunity, but also the chance to draw some very weird horror bits that is usually not within my comfort zone. A great experience! I don't usually post pages up, but I'm very proud of the storytelling here and the texture I achieved through the ink work.

I hope you can pick up the book; you won't regret it! And if you want to read one of those reviews I was talking about, take a look here: The Watchful Sea

The Watchful Sea - COVER by NicolasRGiacondino

Hello, dear watchers and watcherettes!

I usually try and update all that might be interested in my artwork of the projects I complete and what I'm up to or where to find more of it. But sometimes, being as busy as I am, I can let things slip which I shouldn't have. This is such a time.

This here is the cover of the book, in both its original black and white version by me and with the amazing colors by JerMohler. I usually color my own work as you know, but I couldn't be more happy with what Jer did! He kept the palette very simple and gave the whole composition an even more creepy and murky quality that I just loved.

I hope you can pick up the book; you won't regret it! And if you want to read one of those reviews I was talking about, take a look here: The Watchful Sea

Scarab by NicolasRGiacondino
Scarab
Hello fellow deviants! 

I hope your week is going well; mine is, as usual, packed with work. Luckily, some of that work I can show and here's a perfect example.

This illustration was done for Serg-Natos, whom is not only a fabulous artist, but an awesome sculptor and games developer (and a very patient man too; he's waited some three+ years for this to be done). This is the first of a series of rulebook covers I'm doing for Xtraídos, the game's title. Unfortunately, it's been released only in spanish as far as I know, though I will get more details into that. The main tale deals with groups of superheroes attached to various corporate interests fighting for supremacy, as these things usually go :D

The background of this particular character, called Scarab, has him living in ancient days were the wise men of his times, trying to create a God, made him immortal. With little more than that to attest for his divinity, he was entombed and never again awakened until corporate scientists found him and brought him back to life to use as a living weapon. This is the event here depicted.
As you know, I love drawing mixes of ancient culture with hi-tech elements, so this was right up my alley. The designs I'm very proud of, especially the sarcophagus and the scientists' hazmat suits. That contrast of old/new is something I find fascinating.

You can find Sergio's sculpting work in his blogspot Vademécum

As usual, let me know what you think and as soon as I have more information on the game I'll share it here as well as the rest of the covers I'm working on.

See you soon!

LEGENDS: Idunna's Enchanted Apples - The Garden by NicolasRGiacondino
LEGENDS: Idunna's Enchanted Apples - The Garden
Hello, my fellow watchers and watcherettes!

The time has finally come for me to promote something I've been working on this past year (on top of a myriad of other projects and long overdue commissions!) and which is very dear to me: LEGENDS.

What is LEGENDS? It is a series of books written by the fine folks at Norhalla and illustrated by me, centered on famous Norse mythology tales. The first book, which is divided into three parts, is entitled Idunna's Enchanted Apples and as it says on the website: "It is good times in Asgard. Norse people are learning, growing, and spreading their culture.  But not all in Asgard are pleased; Loki is losing his grip in control of the trade routes throughout the realms.  He had just recently lost the trade routes in Svartalfheim, and now there is a plague in Jotunheim causing him to lose what profits he has left.  He and his main trade partner, Thjazi scheme together to have Idunna go to Jotunheim with her magical healing knowledge to set Thjazi’s kingdom back on track, when things go awry.
Idunna’s Enchanted Apples is a graphic edda based on early traditional stories.  It is a fast paced, action packed, suspense and surprise legendary telling with full color illustrations for young adults and adults.
"

This illustration you see here is an example of the quality you'll find inside the pages of the book. This is a particularly poignant and beautiful scene in which I was able to draw a great atmospheric environment, something I do not often get to do. I've done some of my best work to date on this project and I hope you like it and support it as you've done all my past endeavors. And speaking of supporting, here's some places you can find the book in case you want to buy a copy of Part I:

NORHALLA
Amazon
Barnes&Noble

As usual, let me know what you think and feel free to comment on the book if you get a chance to buy it!

Thank you for your support and see you all soon!
