Moving house!

Hey all, I'm busy moving house! 

But the studio at which I am Concept Artist won Develop's best New studio

 


Here is some recent work:


Scan of Cobolds and Goblin ideas from my sketchbook!



Lunch Sketch of the Chilterns based superhero ‘The Red Kite’



I was trying to learn a lot more about line weight and pose from Eric Canete. This is largely a copy of THIS PIECE by him, I continued doodling along. Patterning inspired by the spotted skunk, which is a very cool little creature.

Coffee shop sketching. All super fast trying to stay loose, not be precious and don’t over work anything.

Recent Coffee shop sketching.

Hey guys! Here are some recent coffee shop sketches, it’s always important to tackle your weaknesses and drawing moving people in a stylised fashion is something I’m definitely not confident at, but I’m pretty happy with some of the results and will keep on going!

These are done in a tiny tiny battered sketchbook I bought in muji long ago. Credit goes to Pixie for dragging me out of my dark badger cave to draw in the blinding light of the sun.

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!
