Photoshop and Alcohol

I like Photoshop, and I like drinking. I don't like being in bar fights because as you can see, I'm not a muscle guy. So I'm never the one fighting, unless it's against a kid, or small woman., then I can kick ass.

Warhammer 40k

This is an image I did for the upcoming Black Crusade release by Fantasy Flight games. Shows a priest and a monk. The monk is supose to be seducing the priest in a way, turning him into a traitor. I took a risk and made the situation quite camp, which wasn't how they appeared in the reference, or the exisitng toys.
So I'm happy that the art direction at both Fantasy Flight and Games workshop let me me complete the image using my own perverse angle. It's currently used as a show piece, for marketing the game on the Fantasy Flight website here:
I'm already working on the next set of images, so more to come in the future.

Lord of The Rings - Card Art

Here are two Lord of The Rings enviroment concepts I did last year sometime.
For Fantasy Flight Games. Both concepts were done for the same enviroment, the snowy mountains were droped because some research revealed the enviroment should be free of snow and plants. So I went ahead with the concept on the left. The final image will be included in the latest LOTR games pack, released this month I believe. Nothing spectacular, and I think the print will be only 3 inches or smaller in size. Stil, always fun to work on LOTR stuff.


Walaaa, the card as it appears on line. " The Doors of Armon Lanc " was the original title of this piece, now it appears to be called something else. I don't know when this was released, I actually found it by accident, when I was searching my name online in regards to something else.

Hellboy Bust

So this is my second attempt at sculpting. decided to do a head this time since my first sculpt was a body. Good 'ol Hellboy. It's not done yet, but getting close. Will hopefully have an update on this in a few weeks, would love to do the entire figure with costume. But don't think I will have the time. O well, will see. This also reminds me how much I need a proper camera, these shots are terrible quality.

Phallic Monster Gallery

A couple creatures from a series of many. I think these are a couple years old already, but I like em. All the beasties were based on human genitals, so research was of course fun. Just decided to post these after so many life drawings and plein air stuff in previous posts, thought my blog needed a bit more original onionface flavour. Also looking through old stuff recently wanting to find old projects to continue.

Plein Air Painting, Kind of.

The view from my kitchen window. My previous apartment. I got to sit by the heater drinking beer, and working on the laptop. So I don't know if this counts as plein air exactly. I believe this is the first building, or enviroment I've painted from reference.

A couple weeks ago I took a walk around the neighbourhood looking for interesting places. Came across this alley between 4 or 5 buildings, did a quick sketch on location and finnished it on the computer at home.
I only regret not being able to capture all the grit and details in the original sketch.

 note: the tree is a sillouhette image grabbed from google images, not sure who made it.

Life Drawing 03

3rd life drawing session with the tablet. Tried a new approach with these, painting straight to color without having to do a tonal study first. quite happy with the results. Much learnt, and much more yet to learn.
