Tha Work Thang #28: Merchant of Venus

Greetings and Merry Christmas to all in the Blogreadingaverse!! Hope you all have a very happy yuletide.

I recently had the great pleasure of working on Fantasy Flight Games new edition of "Merchant of Venus". A Sci-fi boardgame of interstellar wheeling and dealing.

I designed the little spaceship that you move around the board and worked on 35 full colour paintings to be used on the game cards. It was great to work in a more whimsical and sci fi style than the usual gritty fantasy art and I was very pleased with how they turned out.

The game is not due to be released until 1st quarter 2012, so I can't show you anything yet I am afraid.

Tha work thang #27: What have you been doing?

Well, I must have been up to something in all this time of not blog posting so I best update on what I have been working on. Lots and lots of equipment illustrations for Fantasy Flight Games that's what. Spanning their Warhammer 40k range of Roleplaying Games, "Black Crusade", "Rogue Trader", "Dark Heresy" and "Deathwatch".

Below are some of the recent or upcoming publications that I have got some piccies in. I will endeavour to show some pieces from these books for you all soon.

Tha work thang #26: The Spider Gods Bride.

Greetings everybody, I have returned from the Ether or whatever and bring you tidings of new work (gasp! shock and awe!!) This piece is for Mongoose Publishing's fantasy offering, "The Spider God's Bride".

A collection of ten blood-red sword and sorcery adventures, inspired by the pulp era tales of Robert E. Howard and Clark Ashton Smith. Venture in the footsteps of Conan the Cimmerian, Satampra Zeiros of Uzuldaroum, Imaro of Nyumbani, and other fabled thieves, reavers and slayers!

It was a great piece to work on, a crazy battle scene with our heroes in the foreground fighting against overwhelming odds.

From the Sketchbook: Draenei Paladin.

Here is another World of Warcraft character I've painted, fully digital done in "Adobe photoshop elements 2" no less. This time a Draenei Paladin with some insanely big shoulder pads. Dynasty eat your heart out.

From the Sketchbook: World of Warcraft Characters.

Here are a couple of pieces done over the last couple of days whilst waiting for a paid assignment to come in. Two of my Warcraft characters, a Human Rogue and a Dwarf Hunter. Really pleased with how these turned out and I've got plenty more in the pipeline. Incidentally, if anyone fancies commissioning one of these for their own characters, drop me an email and we can talk about rates ;)

From the Sketchbook: Goblins!

Inspired by the new Cataclysm expansion for World of Warcraft , I've been enjoying playing the new Goblin race. So I got out the sketchbook and put down a few Goblin concepts of my own.
