I joined Concept Art awhile ago but this is my first post.
I am a freelance illustrator in Australia and have mostly done educational and editorial illustration.
I first attended art college in the early 80s where much for my work was fantasy inspired. Some of my favorite artists include Chris Foss, Frank Frazetta, Earl Norem, Bob McCall, Syd Mead, H R Giger and Alex Toth.
Before i left college i co-illustrated the Fighting Fantasy paperback "Caverns of the Snow Witch" but over the years moved more into graphic design and children's illustration.
I recently came across the books The Skillful Huntsman and Doug Chiang's Mechanika. These have inspired me to do some more fantasy work.
Here's a quick sketch i did a few days ago.
I have always loved those Moonbase girls from Gerry Anderson’s UFO. This drawing is based on Commander, Lt. Gay Ellis (Gabrielle Drake) though I wasn’t really going for a likeness. My first attempt was too realistic so I placed a sheet of detail paper over it and stylised her as much as I could. Medium: Col-erase blue pencil, detail paper, A4 size
