Hellooo! Here's an update.

Costume design, this little lady is stripy and a little steampunk like. More spats in the world.
Here is a sketch of London underground's Demon hunter in action. Ready to take on some spooky goings on, hopefully I will render more on this.


Naked man back!

Recently stuff!

Couple of things,

Sketch of an island from the outskirts of a canal city I’ve been working on, from the same world as the Oxspindle.

I find generally weapons design pretty boring most of the time, so here is a crazy electric gun, you strap the bellows to your leg, the pumping of the brushes builds up an electric charge that is fired from the end of the barrel.

Here’s a sketch of it, I’ll give it some more love.

Sketches and some life drawing.

That must be my most over used blog title.

Here's some sketches and life drawing.

There isn't enough argyle in costume design, or very long spats, next stop HOUNDSTOOTH, then we conquer herringbone.

Rats and studies


Messing about with some rats, slightly skaven i guess?

Some lunch time studies:

One from The Prestige

And some Game of Thrones (again :D )

And some pages from my sketchbook, lots of bouncy train lines and half awake doodling from the met line. These are costume designs for the guards and academics/public servants on the oxspindle.

Belle and Beast

Beauty and the beast redesign,

I realised that belle is the only obviously middle class fairy tale princess, so i decided to give her a sort of Samurai style, the shogunate eventually becoming of a middle class status, i could be wrong if someone would like to help me out of my ignorance I'd be very grateful. So she is a warrior that works for a noble lord, an archer most of the time from her high vantage point on her monstrous mount.

Very fun re-design, now which one to do next!?

More costume and fashion sketch like stuff, got sketch book pages of this stuff i'll scan.

Aaaannnd, life drawing charcoal from this week. The others will ruin my scanner if I scan them now :)

I haven't got around to scanning any life drawing, here is the updated oxspindle!

The academic city powered by a huge golem ox. The airships travel with the belongings slung underneath, pulled up when they are needed, this spares a lot of room once in flight. You can keep your bath and table tennis table out the way, might hit a few pigeons though.

So, to follow the previous post about the world building me and Sam lloyd are doing, here is one of the centres of  academic excellence, it's built on the back of a giant golem kudu, that constantly winds a shaft, powering the city almost endlessly. It's main exports are education and knowledge, more to follow, we have a lot of ideas for this place. Expect more steampunk, airships, alchemy and.... ideas!

And I've been doing a lot of drawing of figures to try and my moving anatomy much better. So i tried to apply it to something, here is a magic fran!

More life drawings!

Huntarian and Airship in the snow

A sketch from today, a few hours on a guy who's airship mother ship is floating off after a battle, he's been left in the snow. It's a bit of a teaser image for a personal world building project I've been working on with Sam lloyd. Expect odd cities, steampunk, alchemy and a fair amount of dystopia.

Some sketches from the Huntarian. Lobster, skulls, Lizard, Armadillo.

Ariel WIP

My fairy tale princess redesign project isn't dead! They just need rendering up and finishing.

Here is Ariel, a very fun costume design. Tried to mix nautical themes with swashbuckling. I still need to fill out a lot of the detail from the original pencils. Fishscale legging are fashionable right? Pufferfish jackets are cool yes? Ah well, here she is :) Lots of work still to do, all painted in photoshop as usual. She isn't as steampunk as cinderella, but i'm hoping they can sit in the same world.

Hello! I have a lot of images on the go at the moment, here is a work in progress, it was fished from my hard drive looking all out of shape, so I've moved around the composition, just need to finish rendering and tweak it. The birds are just placeholders, as is that man's gun :P

I've always been fascinated by sinking or sunken giant ships, something about their integral power, and then the power of nature to throw them around like toys.

As usual it's all messing about in Photoshop.

Bip bip

London underground's demonhunter.

London Underground’s demon hunter, called in when they disturb an old plague pit, or an ancient room locked away for years that they find covered in cryptic writing, or maybe, just a giant demon stomping through the bakerloo line, they say it’s a points failure, but we know the truth, this man is down there, his dog too, which i cropped off the sketch as he wasn’t finished.

I imagine him with a lot of holy relics and i’d like to crazy up the tech hellboy - steampunk style, all on loan from the british museum of course.

And a knight for a lunch project at work.

Err Sketches and stuff.
Hi all, and an extra special hi to all I met at the Oxford sketch meet this weekend, I had a lovely time, sorry if anyone was caught suddenly in front of my rambling ;)

Study of a screenshot from Game of Thrones - Samwell Tarly as played by John Bradley.

Done at lunch today, so 45mins or so on photototototototoshop

Some sketches from the train home.
Some lady!

VANGUARD has a nice sound to it.

I like Halberds at the moment, this one is based on a german 16th centuary one? I think...


And some of the concept work for sniper ghost warrior two has been released, here is one i worked on at opus artz
