Moving ‘home’

Over the past couple of weeks I've been doing a bit of, hmmm, soul searching I suppose. I've decided that I need a bit of a change of direction and something that I can focus my energies on with a bit more ease. For whatever reason the past few months and years on the art... Continue Reading →

“A Great War is coming, and it will engulf the Imperium of Man. The Space Marines of the Alpha Legion, the last and most secretive of all the Legiones Astartes brotherhoods, arrive on a heathen world to support the Imperial Army in a pacification campaign against strange and uncanny forces. But what drives the Alpha Legion? Can they be trusted, and what side will they choose when the Great War begins? Loyalties are put to the test, and the cunning schemes of an alien intelligence revealed.”

My Horus Heresy reads are paired with Wordaholic Anonymous, and when their review for Legion is posted, I shall link it here.

Devon: DnD Archer Class.

As an experimental piece, I am rather pleased with it. I tried a few different things with this. Back lighting was the first thing I tried out. I've never done this with the cell shading style that I've adopted in recent years. Background/Foregrounds are one of my real weaknesses and I really need to put... Continue Reading →

WIP Update: Devon Archer

Another quick blog update tonight. I managed to get some rough flat-colours onto the finished lines of this particular art piece. I'm going to try experimenting with some back lighting, so I might lighten it up a touch so it doesn't all just come out as one big black darkness when set in the background.... Continue Reading →

Blood Guard: Update

Lately, picking up anything hobby related has felt a bit more like a chore than an enjoyment - part of why the art has been coming thick and fast compared to hobby related stuff. I walk past my Blood Guard army several times a day and each time I feel a mixture of guilt, for... Continue Reading →

Finrelithenye Bailey

This is my half of an art trade with Torekdva of their elven mage/farmer character, Fin. This felt like a great step in the right direction when it comes to illustrations and where I'd like to take some of my artwork. Don't get me wrong I am always going to lean towards pin-ups and the... Continue Reading →

WIP – Devon Archer/Ranger

Please excuse the photograph quality, used my little camera for this rather than dig out the monster of a scanner! I've embarked on the fantasy series for my main characters, starting with Devon as an Archer/Ranger type class. I figured I rarely share my rough sketches on here and would like to start forming good... Continue Reading →
