the white orc

this dude had a lot of design choices i really liked; the almond eyes, the flattened nose and the more vampire king look to him was really cool. That and i find facial scarification fascinating. I did this painting from memory so he’s not 100% accurate to what he looked like in the film. but nevertheless this was fun to paint.

Sir Brum Esq

Sir Brum esq. the bugbear barbarian lawyer.
when creating the character on sheet i just kind of went with whatever rolls i got. having no ambition to purposefully build a character. what i got was a immensely strong barbarian with high charisma and intelligence.  so without knowing it I had a character that resembled Hank Macoy. this was a big factor on designing this smug basterd. i like the more bestial lion like look of more recent incarnations of beast but i didnt want to include the bright blue fur. so i opted for a more rusty red.
I thought it would be cool to have a character that was always trying to appear above his station. a monster with class. thus the lawyers tail coat and commerband over the amour shaped to look like a steel waistcoat. and the cute little bow tie.   below is an illustration from the current quest we're on. where he had to scoop up two party members under his arms and crash through a window to escape a burning room filled with hellhounds.

Grizzled General

A reinstated Danport back in the great machine of the Tecknologists Empire. with ceremonial helmet custom made to further his reputation and legend as the old lion. he's mostly held together by his power amour but is still ferocious in battle, refusing to lead from the safety of forward command.

Man fears the darkness, and so he scrapes away at the edges of it with fire.

What! Fanart? well yes it is. But Watcha gonna do dork?
This scene and episode always stuck in my mind after i watched it. I love how visceral and bloodthirsty the violence is in Evangelion. It really just spits in the eye of other mecka anime.

So I should say this painting just took just 20 minuets like the real digital artists. But the truth is this one took ages. regardless I still enjoyed the process of painting a figure from a reference.

WW2 Meck

I think getting a larger wacom tablet was a good decision. I'm still getting to grips with it but it affords me much more control and allows to draw completely in the computer. on the old a5 one i would get horrible line control  and getting a nice curve was impossible. so yes. big thumbs up for an a4 bamboo. I wanted the meck to have a ww2 tank feel to it. I imagine it would kind of waddle through urban combat arias and provide mobile armored mortar support.  but due to it going side to side with every step, firing and moving would be a no go.

I'm breaking in a new tablet so I thought I'd some horror. this piece may well end up the cover of a comic I'm starting to write about a town of people plagued by slender people.
I know I'm pretty much ripping of the slender man meme but for such a cool idea there aren't a lot of very good stories concerning the creature. The idea is great don't get me wrong but I'd like to do something cool with it. anyway watch this space I suppose.

Violent but Educational

Blimey its been a long time with no posts. 
Due to work and a lack of a tablet I haven't had much to post about
to be honest. so here are some snapshots of the TED video i'm makeing with 
help from Rosana Wan. http://www.rosanna-wan.com/

first contact

At 23:47 exploration ship the Sagan made contact. the first with an extraterrestrial life form.
After a garbled transmission all communication stopped. at 00:00 there was one last transmission. initially thought to be white noise, upon later inspection it was in fact the astronauts screaming.

Vikings Invade

Concept art for the next project I'm working on. I love history (as you probably know) and depicting it so I'm really exited to start working on it. I'm trying to be as accurate to history as i can so no horns on these vikings.  there are also no style restrictions this time so i can stretch my legs stylistically so to speak.

speed paint blarg

Some speeds before I do my real work or moving things around on a screen.  I'm trying to do at least one of these things a day but finding the right subject matter is a pain. then again i should just suck it up and paint anyway.

So long time no posting. man this painting took far too long to make. But I figured if I was going to do some fanart other than batman I might as well go head first. I like the idea that even though the avengers are this bad ass team when they have to team up its for something incredibly bad and impossible. so seeing them only just about get through and almost die in the process is something i find interesting instead of  just blazing through without a scratch. just the more battle worn look.
I'm still figuring out my process to define myself as a painter. i'm still not completely satisfied with this one but i think I'm getting there.

In the wake of the plague of terrors, millions fled to what little safety they could find. military bases where the best places but they where soon overrun. in the end only a few places remained that could offer legitimate sanctuary. on such place was fort Titus. initially the soldiers and their commanders let anyone in who showed no sign of infection. then only skilled workers then only young women.
the base became a society unto itself where the commanders rule was law. thousands still flocked to fort Titus, but none where let in. they banged at the vaulted doors until they bled but none where let in. eventually the terrors found them there and devoured the refugees encamped outside, still shrieking to be let in. then the soldiers used napalm on everything outside and cleansed the land. occasionally raiding parties venture out from camp Titus. searching for food or weapons or slaves. but nobody is allowed inside.

Lone Tree

so I'm slowly getting over my inability to do architectural landscapes and forms. I think i over did the light beams on this one but i wanted it to have a dramatic quality. again more influence from games like fallout and mccartheys scant but haunting descriptions of the dangerous city scapes from the road.

A Liars Autobiography

at the 1:15 mark you can see the club room backgrounds i designed and made.
this was a massive project that pretty much all of my friends in animation worked on at some
point or another. i cant wait to see it in the cinema!

Random Encounter

So now you're unemployed how are you fending off the madness of being a jobless goon? you ask?
here are some shots from the short story I'm working on called Random Encounter.
its part of a larger story I want to develop around themes of pop culture, video games and comics in general. but for the moment I'm gonna start small.
Issue one will be on sale at the October mcm expo. I plan to make at least three issues a year untill I'm confident in making it in one proper volume. 
Hey. A boy can dream can't e'?

Neon Shadows rough preview

Still pretty raw but theyre geting there. expect more and better updates in the future.
after trying and failing on many occasion to write draw and colour my own comics i decided to just pack it in and do it but no colour as my tiny brain cant handle all that.

so this is the villain from the comic I'm working on. yes I know he's the usual tron/ raiden rubber suit getup bullcrap.But i wanted to subtly change his anatomy to make him slightly off. the arms and legs are too long and his shoulders are basically non existent. giving him a sort of muscular corps feel. I imagine he would move like a panther or some big predator and would kill using his hands. That and the intense angular shapes to the head I wanted to convey a element of masculine beauty mixed with something grotesque. A bit like pyramid head from the silent hill film.

orrible istories

Some time ago I managed to work on the horrible histories game AD/BC's tome tour a rotten rehearsal. for the BBC.  Not only did i get to contribute to a franchise I have loves since i was a kid, but i also got to work with a great team and spend most of the days drawing funny and awesome stuff. if i could have more commissions like this I would be a very happy monster.
