Giant Fight

Giant Fight

This started out as a doodle and went further than planned.  It took a while as the elements got juggled around.  It definitely drifted from that initial sketch and took quite a long time to finish.

Some more Avatar screenshots. Its not like I don't have any other movies I just figure that the shots would have been more heavily planned than some other movies so its worth doing this exercise with this one.  See how long I last -only 15 minutes in .  Some of these were quicker to do than varying between maybe 30 minutes  to 1 hour.  Faces are still hard for me.

One of 6 Mechs

One of 6 mechs
Add caption
This started out as a round in the conceptworld sketchathon. Highly recommend them but I can usually only join for part of it and even then only every second Sunday.  
The challenge was 6 mech designs in 30 minutes.  I pooped the 6 designs out. They were definitely not battle mechs. Looked more like maintenance bots.    I decided to push one of them a little further as he looked like he had a bit of character about him

Garden Painting

Garden painting Final
I posted some work on this earlier.  I revisited it over the holidays and finished it.  The main change was to try and add other colours in to kill the vast green expanse.  In defence this is Ireland and during the Summer it is really green.

Rocket City

Rocket City

I did a study of a shuttle a while back an kept on promising to go back and do something based on it.  This image came out of just noodling around.  To be honest the colour pallet came first then I just started adding stuff.


The photo was a jumping off point for the structures.  It sat underneath but it got painted out as things progressed.

Mordred Character

Mordred Character
Mordred Character
This is the last character concept for the Crimson Daggers Mentoring. 
I did not keep up with the classes before Christmas and finished this one just last week.  
 It was good to follow along and I did learn about all the things to think about when putting a concept together.  I had not done any character work before and it is something I would like to keep up.  

These were all the characters in the set.  Looking at them I would think the last 2 Morgana and Mordred look more like they share the same universe.  I may go back and rework the other two. 

Works on the other characters are here Arthur, MerlinMorgana.

Wolf Pup Study

Speedpaint for DA group.  Took 2 hours for this.  Came back after completing it and just softned a few edges.  This was tough to get pose - think it was the angle.  Stock from Eirian-stock on Deviant Art.
