Some mini studies from Game of Thrones, Prometheus, Hellboy and I Am Legend. Last one from a photo I took in Prague earlier this year. Very messy but working on my understanding of colour and solely using the RGB and Lightness sliders to mix colour.

Here's a couple of character portraits from quite a while ago that have just been released. They were done for a reboot of the SLA Industries IP by Romark (http://www.sla-industries.com)
These were an absolute last minute job with 2 days to do both paintings including initial design sketches, waiting on feedback, doing revisions and also finishing off work for another client inbetween. Could definitely have done better on these now, even with that deadline, but might aswell post them..

Been working on a laptop for the past couple of days thanks to my hard drive dying on me but on the plus side I decided to try the CS6 demo in the meanwhile. Next to the usual CS3 it's a beautiful, beautiful thing. Will definitely be upgrading.
Here's some rough work I did for a client that I'm allowed to show. I'm not too happy with how these designs turned out but there was a deadline of 2 days to get a pretty big workload done, including revisions, and there was a lot of very specific restrictions. Comes with the job though right?
Also a couple of quickies - a highlandesque landscape and a stag study. Thought I'd go with a more painterly approach to stop myself becoming too much of a CG render machine.

Here's a character design I did a little while ago for the upcoming tabletop sci-fi game "THON". It's being put together by J.R. Vosovic and will be hitting Kickstarter at the beginning of next month. You can find out more and see some other artwork from the facebook page:
There's more art getting released gradually so stay tuned...

Been working on this film still study off and on between jobs for the past week or so. It's from "Lesbian Vampire Killers". Easily one of the worst films ever made, but there are a few nice lighting setups in there somewhere. So, if you're looking for some nice lighting and wondering whether it's worth watching then I can tell you.. no. No, it's not. Google the screenshots instead.

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, been ridiculously busy working on things I can't show but will hopefully have something to post soon. For now here's some mini game screenshot studies, unreferenced reflection study, doodle-designs in ballpoint/pencil and an environment sort of inspired by DS3 and The Thing...
