The sun is almost back!

 Hello there! How are you? in London the sun is attempting to break through our new smoggy overlords and bring the summer.

Here's an update!

Update!

Hello!

So I've got a new job, I've just started at Space Ape Games in Soho as their concept artist, so I've been very busy with all that.

Annoyingly I've miss placed my memory stick which had my current PSDs on, so I can't show you those. So until I find it, here are some sketches....

Before I left Cambridge our D&D group expanded by 2, here are my sketches of them:


 Feisty theif goblin, and biter of wrists and ankles, she's a little mad.



His name is Des, he’s a stranded fisherman. Here’s my quick sketch of him from the train home.

Abyssal henchman! Robots in the mist! Asteroid base!



 I've done a bit of work on the rendering up of JR the abyssal henchman.

 30min speed paint on the theme 'Robots in the mist' well I had too really.


And an old Concept sketch for a base in an asteroid field, using a bit of artistic licence on the lighting there :)

For Frontier Development’s Elite Dangerous.

More steampunk mech legs and hedgewizards

Firstly....
Here is a Plasma spear weilding steampunk henchman, he arose from a conversation I was having with my friend John Roberts and Christine Cross about good names for heroes / villains. 

He used to work in deep sea salvage before become the muscle. I hope his name will be something like ABYSSAL PHIL, or something. 

Anyway, I was inspired to drop some of them into my quasi steampunk oxspindle world and here is the first, of hopefully many. The story will continue to unfold! I want to bring a sprinkling of art nouveau into these guys, we’ll see if I can manage it.



Character sketch based on a description by Tharook.

Floating wizard of these people


Little chaps like this have started appearing in my sketchbook! I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Have a great week!

Hello! Happy new year!


This is another release from frontier developments of my many many concepts for space stations.


The Urban Fox reappears in my sketchbook everytime, she lives on a scrapyard in an old bus, and makes money primarily from tinkering. She wears a lot of green stiped clothes and some old ex army boots. Her dad is professor wasp who is a lycra clad cyclist who owns a mad scientist style lab I drew many many years ago.
