While graphite rendering is not DW's typical medium for commercial illustration, that is more due to fewer requests for the style as opposed to any personal preference. During college DW focus was 2-dimensional art with a focus on drawing, and graphite was one of his primary media of study.

The first image above is a study from the mid-90s based on a magazine ad as a texture test. The second piece is a creature illustration for a game publication from the early 2000s, with a request for a rougher, more unrefined technique. The next image is a full-page chapter heading for a game publication also from the early 2000s. The last piece is a tightened underdrawing indicative of DW's ink and painting technique. While not technically a finished graphite rendering, this piece demonstrates the base rendering and mark making that goes into all of his work. This drawing is for an ink and dye piece from the mid 2000s for a card game.
