I’ve linked up with awesome concept artist, Chen Liang, who’s done a bunch of work for Epic Games, makers of “Gears of War” and we’re putting together an illustrated edition of my gritty SF crime saga the Scorpion Game.

The first images are coming along beautifully.  They are still WIPs (works in progress) but I love to let fans in on the inner workings of how art gets made.  Check out these early pieces below.

The book is a mashup of the noir detective genre and sci-fi (or SF for you purists) so Chen had the idea to do some old photo style prints of his city sculptures. They came out awesome.  See them below.

Check out some of Chen’s other work at his personal blog. I picked a few of my favorite pieces of his below but he has a ton more worth seeing.
