Enter Six Hard Mercenaries For Hire...

Think this is going to be my last bit of geeky/fantasy work for a while, as I want to concentrate on a couple of proper illustrations. But, what better way to go out than on a bit of fan art!
Myself and my friend Wayne are huge Chaos Engine fan's and recently Wayne set up a fan page for the artist from that game (and numerous others) Dan Malone.

Being part of this fan page he set off a chain reaction of nostalgia, that is now running through my geek fueled viens! Therefore I thought I'd take on the challenge of painting up all six of the lead character's from the Chaos Engine. I did the same challenge a few years ago and part of the draw with this new challenge is to be able to compare how my style and skill levels have changed in the 2 years since.

The grayscale Navvie piece at the top is only 40% finished. And yes, I have another 2 characters to draw, but I think I want to get one character fully finished so I then know what direction I'm taking them all in.

What's that...a bit of professionalism...yep :)

Ok, ok It's basically the same image as yesterday. But looking at it late last night, I saw the potential for it to become part of my Blogs banner. So, after many, many month's of bareness (and sheer laziness) I have finally given this Blog a proper title!

Conversation with self:

"So, you think this new and more professional Blog title will now make people start following you then?"

"Your having a laugh ain't ya. People wouldn't follow me if I was the lead in a Conga line!"

A Wizard, with armour....Erm!

This was done for my friend's over in the Drawing Guild

The brief was a Wizard with a pointy hat and armour...Yer, I kind'a bypassed that last one, soz!
Sketched and paint all today and was a nice little exercise to do.

P.s) I know this and the last post both have fly's in them, it's no fetish I swear!

Nobody Likes A Fly, Not Even Shit!

Done simply for the fact that I hate Flies. Especially the (soft bastard) ones, that brake into your room through the open window...and then when it's time to go... suddenly forget how they got in!

Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead......well, uni has finished!

Ok, uni is finally over (big smile) and what a waste of time it was!!! But, I've wasted 3years on the bastard, so I'm not going to waste any more of my time by ripping the place to piece's.

Anyway, this is my first piece of work since escaping the clutch's of university and my first real (digital/fully finished) piece of work since my Grendal image, which was month's ago. The brake away has done me the world of good, though having so much time away from the computer/photoshop has made me very rusty and the first 2 sessions on this picture were tough going!
