Hi all, Here is the final version of the Image started at the Anifest demo 2 weeks ago. Going to be teaching these landscape techniques in the next project at UCA with the first years. This image was much fun to work on, all in all took about 6 or 7 hours, didn't want to over do it and kill all the energy from the original sketch, hope you like..

Haven't uploaded any work in quite a while as been very busy with sculpting and prepping work for various teaching events. This is my latest finished painting, delving more into high tech interiors with many more techniques being explored. Of course all created from scratch in Photoshop

This is my entry for the latest Deviantart.com competition to create an end of level boss colossus. The brief was to make create a piece of concept art for the game Rift, based on one of the six planes. Posted last minute on Sunday, hoping to get a look in on the prizes, but the standard was really high. Check out other pieces recently posted here
Wish me luck

This is the final painting, elaborating on one of my recent sets of character sketches. Being very prolific these days and taking many more sketches into final illustrations. This is two evenings work, in my eyes quick..

As my year of drawing progresses, many ideas are finally making their way from where they've lurked for years, in the recesses of my imagination. I'm now beginning to consider the commonalities between the drawings and bringing themes together for final presentation at the end of the year.. Scary how close that seems.

These four sketches are from a year long project I started in February, making a drawing every day indulging my compulsive need to draw. The ideas are eclectic and follow themes, forming sets of sketches, which are sparking ideas and new directions. These drawings will be published into a book come next February, watch this space for the next update... This project has already generated so much content for the book and forced me to take my imagination much further than normal.

These are the tip of the 'miniature' iceberg of figures I've sculpted over the last 7 years. All figures were sculpted either in Super Sculpey or Castaline wax, ranging from 6cm to 10cm. Just uploading my favourites as I've probably made at least 250 figures in that time... These are Aragorn and of course the caped crusader..

This character is starting to develop now, I want to add to his bag next, giving him an obvious scale, this is beginning to take shape as a story too. I think with a few more sessions in zbrush I'll upload a finished version and a set of drawings illustrating this little fellas life, keep an eye out.
