It's been a while since I've posted new work, but the NDA's have been an age in clearing. Lots of stuff some of it over a year old. Sorry about the huge download
I did 14 pages for Thomas Jane and Images Bad Planet comic. It's finally published. Here are the pages. I always seem to have quite a hectic pace on comics so most of these pages were 2 days max per page start to finish. There are areas I would of liked longer on but thought I would include them all, warts intact.
A self-contained 4 pager for an insert called Four feet from a Rat, in London's Time Out magazine. produced in conjunction with the ad agency Mother London and Liam Sharps Mam Tor publishing.
Cards from Magic the Gathering's Shadowmoor expansion. All in acrylic.
Some World of Warcraft cards.
Finally a few bit's and pieces, games workshop, 2000ad etc.
Universe of Dragons for Daniel Maghen in France. Thanks to Living Rope for pointing me in the right direction. This is the Lambton work one of my favourite English dragon stories. The Dragon tears itself to shreds on the knight's spiked armour.
Finally a couple of horror images.

"Work is more fun than fun."
"Art is supposed to punch you in the brain, and it's supposed to stay punched."
Gorgeous and intense. I love them!
Damn, those are wonderful! I like that magazine insert and the horror pics.
that second last horror pic really is creeping me out. i think it's mostly because every figure is staring at me.
Fabulous work. Far too much to take in all at once, but great colours, and textures going on in these.
I'll be back to have a longer look...
wow! really great work!!!!
Wow, that is a ton of eye-candy. Very cool.
Man these are all fucking sick. I really dig the acrylic paintings, always good to see someone who knows how to use them.
The warlock picture just made my day.
And Kudos for actually making a gnome look serious.
Gotta keep an eye out for you now.
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=113536 Feel free to critique, would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know what to say except give me my jaw back.
That was better than a pot of coffee. I'm wide awake and my brain is racing. Seeing fine work such as these does that to me.
Thanks so much for posting. I love your style. The voidwalker with gnome painting is probably the best rendition of voidwalker I've ever seen, and I believe that making a gnome look so badass takes some super serious skills.
Love the comics and everything else too. Beautiful work!
Holy hell!!! Those are amazing man. I love your comic panels. Especially the first set... quite a bold choice to go with a protagonist who doesn't even look remotely human. And I love the tilted exposition panels you've got going in page 8...
Is aemos a 40K adept by any chance?
I just made a new folder on my computer.

Amazing , i really like the detail and the colors you put in your paintings.
sketchbook updated October 6th
Thanks for the comments.
Eartstormjim - Glad you liked it.
Elwell - Means a lot, thanks very much.
MarkWinters - Thanks, I really enjoy producing comic art. It's a hell of a lot of work for smaller financial reward but there's something about telling a sequential story that really stimulates me. Plus you have to illustrate everything in the script so it hones your skills too.
Phil Moss - Thanks Phil.
scott*altmann - Hi Scott. Working with artists like yourself, and many others from this site on Magic and WOW means you can never rest on your laurels. Truly powerful, game raising competition.
Mandryk - Thanks Darryl, Really pleased you like the work. Been following and admiring your work for quite a while now.
Orunitier - Cheers. Horror's the one thing I don't get enough opportunity to draw. I'd be exploring it all the time given a choice.
Carnifex - The concept spooks me a little. That painting is based on the erlking by John Connolly. A really spooky short story based on the child killing, dark fairy lord. Has real babies for dolls and a crown made of childrens fingers. The painting is in Sunny California now.
Ralph horsley - Thanks Ralph. Love the goblin goodness you did for Shadowmoor.
thedeath - Thank you.
strych9ine - Eye's can get seriously obese on this site. Mine dribble syrup now.
Andrew Marks - Thanks Andrew. With the gnome I just tried to ignore the fact he's a little squirt and concentrated on his intent.
aka_sova - Really appreciated.
LORD M - OK, but my Grans going to have to go back to chewing her own food.
PatriciaS - Thanks Patricia. A pot of freshly ground coffee is surely one of the great joys in life. Certainly one of mine.
frixon - Thanks Frixon. I think 2 days is slow compared to some guys. I know quite a few comic artists and the quantity and quality of work they can churn out is phenomenal.
krossj - Thanks.
Robert.B - Cheers Robert.
Nightblue - Glad you liked the voidwalker. This image went through a couple of incarnations. hopefully I'll be able to post the earlier image which had a completely different composition. The WOW process is quite in depth and can result in quite a few tweaks to sketches and finals.
Lord Dubu - I can't take credit for the protagonist as I came on board after 5 issues for a flashback sequence. The concept is all Tom Janes. Totally insane story. There were points reading the script which had my head and stomach doing back flips. Was a lot of fun working with Tom and the RAW crew on this.
DSillustration - Thanks so much Dan.
OmertA- Thank you OmertA.
Alti - Thanks Alti.
Nubb - Mass production...If only. I'm always telling myself to work harder. Glad you liked them. More updates to come.
