What did you do?

what did you do

I am so used to Rhodes looking intense or mean that this was really jarring for me to see, let alone draw.
Rhodes!?
What did you do!?
I’ve still got a long way to go with my art and drawings and such, but I am glad that expressions are coming along more than they used too~

Gun bandoliers are still a pain in the butt!

rhodes toplessI was going to create a ‘reference’ image of Rhodes for future use, but I figured that his outfits wouldn’t deviate much from what he wears canon-ly in Day of the Dead so it turned into this instead.

I was thinking of infuriating aspects that I could add to his personality even in such a simple image – which is why his boot laces are untied!

Can’t run away from the undead hordes without tripping over with your laces untied! Idiot.

I am so back into this fandom and I am even contemplating writing a fanfiction with them again.

I’ve never really had much success when it comes to writing them before because I’ve always doubted my skills and struggled for a setting and solid idea for them; I think I might have cracked this now.

Just need to get started on it.

Until then, please enjoy this image of Rhodes topless as much as humanly possible!!

When the devil calls

when the devil comes

I’ve been back into the whole “Day of the Dead” fandom lately. It’s funny how these things get kicked back into our brains.

I was looking to see if The Walking Dead was available to watch on Netflix (It isn’t) but as a result it showed me Day of the Dead: Bloodline. It was all downhill from there.

I’ve been mostly enjoying sharing artwork and thoughts over on an instagram account that I made for the purposes of enjoying the ‘fandom.’ I state fandom in that way because quite honestly, there is only really me making content for it; and the occasional piece of fan art from others. It’s pretty lonely, but I think it’s also what I needed right about now. Something that I can casually enjoy and think about while I am going about my usual day to day.

It’s also great cause I have a lot that I can share from throughout the years; collaborations, giftarts, drawings and the likes to keep me inspired.

But, I thought it would be an awesome thing to share on here as well, cause Day of the Dead has been one of my longer term fandoms; dating back to 2004ish. When was at animal college and really discovered horror movies. I remember making a leaflet about sympathy for the zombies from that movie for my IT project; I didn’t take IT seriously!

But yeah, have a picture of Kiz and Rhodes – it’s certainly nothing ground breaking, but it’s a start down this nightmare track again~

 

Ultramarine Pin-Up

A lot of my artwork is inspired by silly conversation over on Twitter. When discovering that there is someone out there who has as much need for Pin Up Space Marines as I do, I had to get back to work on that sort of thing!

It also fits in with the whole, trying to get better at drawing Space Marines thing, that I have going on at the moment.

The challenge is to do enough of these for a calendar. I won’t be able to get them done in time for 2019, I am not that fast, but I shall look into getting something sorted for 2020. I may look into doing my own KickStarter or some such, if the idea gets enough traction! As I sadly, cannot afford to create something like this out of my own pockets. We shall see! It will be good fun to draw them up regardless~

If you have any ideas for specific Chapters for the calendar, let me know!?

Space Marine Art Progress

IMG_20181204_0001

I am trying to do an amazing picture of Noise Marine still and progress hasn’t been all that strong. I still feel like I am not getting the fundamental shape of Space Marines right just yet so I might have to have another hunt for a basic model and have another try. This was my latest attempt; which I got as far as lining in and then left it. Looking over it this morning, I’m not going to be finishing this one as I feel a bit too much of it doesn’t look right – nothing wrong with reassessing your work and binning it.

I shall give him another go in the near future. He has such an awesome design and I want to produce a piece of fan art that does him justice!

Konrad Curze

Curze

It’s been a while since I did any Warhammer fan art, and this one has been in the works for a while now. I find Warhammer art very challenging compared to the regular artwork that I do. So it’s always wonderful when I get one of the Primarchs series finished; even though the series has been in the works for over a year and I seem to have lost some of the original higher resolution files. Whoops.

Anyway, this is my interpretation of Konrad Curze, Primarch of the Night Lords.

I am pretty pleased with how the skulls in his legs look.
Derpy skulls are my ‘speciality’ so it was wonderful to be able to draw so many of them together in a single picture!

When I am ready to draw the next in Primarch, I shall hold a poll over on Twitter and see what we get!

Slave Silk Collection

Silks

For those that don’t know yet, I am pretty much obsessed with Gorean style slave silks. I love the way they look so much. I also find the books and culture behind them pretty interesting; while rather dated their impact on BDSM subculture can’t be denied.

But yes, the aesthetic of silks really inspires me and I enjoy it greatly. So I decided to design some outfits for my main girls.

Jenn – I wanted something cute but sexy for Jenn; I think her outfit is the most far removed from the traditional silk style but I tried her in something very traditional but it didn’t look as ‘Jenn’ to me. I normally dress Jenn up in tripp pants or something ‘cheesy goth’ so going for the cute look felt a bit odd too.

Devon – Little Miss Goth herself! It was only natural that she lent more towards the elegant gothic style of silks.And black too, what a surprise!

Kala – I have this wonderful pinterest board of clothing that I want to dress Kala in and have drawn her in precisely NONE of it! It’s all frilly, elegant and pretty and it’s how I imagine Kala dressing while working in Carnivale Macabre: Nocturne. I really need to draw more of Kala and get her aesthetic shared, cause it’s so amazingly pretty!!

Kizmit – I wanted something a bit different for Kizmit when comparing her with Devon; they’re both pretty ‘Goth’ in their looks so getting the distinction between them was actually pretty difficult. I see Kizmit as more of a power-house when designing outfits and things for her. More, tight corsets and stuff that says ‘I wear the trousers’ even though that couldn’t be further from the truth!!

No Glow – Her whole theme is silks, so this isn’t really that far removed from what she normally wears!! I wanted to just give her a few strips of fabric and see what she did with them.

Zsa Zsa – She is so used to wearing long, expensive ball gowns (Or nothing but nipple pasties) so matching a set of silks to her was fun. Making them look like something she would happily wear, was another thing!

Skaejre – Skaejre was a more difficult one to do for this set/theme. She doesn’t tend to see nudity as a sexual thing so doesn’t always wear clothes to the same effects as my other characters. She is also more tribal and spiritual than my other characters so I hope that reflects in the design of her outfit. I am also pleased to announce that my derpy skulls extend to bird skulls too!

If there are any other characters in my stable you’d like to see me design outfits like this for please let me know!
I’m also tempted to make some up for my main guys too~
