This was an oldish sketch that I finished up a bit. I was watching Anthony Jones' Lighting Video and tried to use his technique.

Zombie Comic page

This was a commision I recently finished. It's for a t shirt design. I had a lot of fun on it and the client was really great to work with.

Concerning Dragons

Hi everyone, I just finished up the last couple of pieces for my submission for Imagine FX's Rising stars contest. I had such a hard time choosing a category to enter, I was torn between Illustration and Comics, I ended up going the illustration.

I've been working heaps of late nights and most of the weekends to get my portfolio ready to send off over the last couple of weeks. So with these last two pics I thought I had a week each for each to finish (which is tight when you only have after work). Turns out I only had one week to do two portfolio pieces, ahhh. Anyway here they are I'm pretty pleased with how much I was able to get done.

Smaug, inside information

I can't wait for the Hobbit to come out, its such an awesome book and Peter Jackson and Weta did such an amazing job on LOTR. I think this is maybe the second time I've tried to paint a dragon. I tried to capture the feeling I had when reading this. I think the hardest part was trying to get across that Smaug is an intellegent and cunning dragon, rather than just a beast. Don't know if I quite pulled it of but I really enjoyed painting this.


I was pretty happy with how this one turned out.

Here's a new portfolio piece I just finished. I tried to do something a bit different from my usual dark stuff and push myself. Done after work and on weekends for fun/practice.


Thursday, 27 September 2012


This is my most recent portfolio piece, It started out as random sketch that I ended up liking and taking to a finish. I was going for a Magic the Gathering vibe for this one. I had lots of fun working on it, I was thinking of him as a Temple guard who you don't want to mess with.


Marvel pitch intro

These are the concepts for the intro to the Marvel pitch. The character is Icarus from the Eternals


Marvel pitch

I did this a few months ago at work. It's the cover for a pitch package for a marvel themed game. I really enjoyed getting the chance do work on marvel characters during work hours. I've always loved comics and have wanted to work in comics since I was a kid, this is the closest I got so far so I was stoaked.

Here it is with the logo. Done by Jared MacPherson

And some detail shots.

For this piece I wanted to experiment and try something different and do something that was a bit more textured and chunky. It was a bit of fun and practice

Jugde Dredd

I used to love this comic. I remember getting one for my birthday from a friend when I was around 10. It was so cool and violent. I even liked the bad movie, untill I watched it again recently.

 I saw the trailer for the new movie the other day, I'm not sure about it yet. I do like Carl Urban though. So I'll have to wait and see it might be alright.

Done over 3 or 4 nights after work.

Creature from the black lagoon

Hi everyone, this started as a quick sketch but I liked how it was going so I put a bit more time into it. Done over three nights after work, just for fun.

Here's the initial sketch.

Bloodsport #8 Wolf Blitzer

Hey everyone here is my piece for the Crimson Daggers Bloodsports #8. I didn't have much time to work on this so it's not finished yet. I didn't get to do many studies for it either, it really makes a big difference when you can do studies and directly apply them to your work. It was good fun though.


I was planning on doing this comp but changed my mind last minute.

Bloodsport #5 Princess Mononoke

Hey everyone here's my final piece for the Crimson Daggers Bloodsports Challenge. I really had fun on this I was trying to use a much more saturated and bright colour pallet than I usually do, to try and reflect the feel of the movie. I'll post a step by step for this one a bit later.

Bloodsport #5 Studies

Hi everyone here are my first few studies for the next Crimson Daggers Bloodsports Challenge. It's definitely going to be challenging but should be good fun. I'm doing a poster for Princess Mononoke, which I hadn't seen till just the other day. I was blown away by it, what an awesome movie. If you haven't seen it yet check it out.
