CutThroat Caverns Card

Smirk & Dagger games have just sent me my own game of CutThroat Caverns which includes one of my pieces on their cards! So awesome and so thankful to them for including me.

Elena Portrait

Portrait of Elena from Uncharted. For this I used the same procedure as below, no grid method, but sketched entirely by hand using the Riley method of measuring the proportions of the head. You can the WIPs for this here.

Also I'm now at Teesside University! This week I start my proper work on my MA Concept Art for Video Games and Animation course, cannot wait to get started. One of the first things we'll be studying is Character Design, which is something I rarely really do, so hopefully it'll turn out to be pretty worthwhile to be out of my comfort zone. Can't wait to just spend a whole year painting.

Fire and Water

Here is some new stuff I've created for Ironbelly and Bitfiction respectively. The top is a concept for the Water Column Room while the bottom two show the progress of an environment I've been trying to perfect showing the sabotage/attack/something of the main character's home village. Thought I'd go for something quite industrial. And I've just noticed that the images in the progress image are in the wrong order, argh!

Self-Portrait & BitFiction

Here's my first proper go at a self-portrait, thanks to my mate George Lovesy for the awesome skin texture brushes. Also I have to mention the new studio that me and Mr. Lovesy have just set up together! We're calling it BitFiction Studios and we're currently working towards creating some early assets for our primarily art-based graphic novel that we've decided to make. We'll hopefully have a deviantART group and maybe a blog up soon so everyone can keep up to date on all our goings on.

First Character Sketch & Neon Compound

Decided to finally give some character design ago with a little help from some guidelines and some body references. Hopefully if I can keep doing them I'll get better as the time goes on. Also took one of the concepts from below further in the piece above and created a sci-fi-ish snow compound area. I love using neon signs as light.
