Experiments in oil

The last time I worked in oil was 18 years ago, in high school.
This holiday I got a chance at last to buy some oil paints and start a painting.
I'd like to say it's like riding a bike...maybe just a little.
So here my first oil painting WIP. I'm pretty happy with it so far.
I've made a lot of mistakes in the process, but I've learnt a lot and I cant wait to finish this one and start another!
I still have to push the background back a bit more, I think, and detail the figures in the back a bit more.

I'm definitely going to have to figure out where to get these photographed...or I'll have to get a proper camera.

Happy Festive season, everyone!

I'm outta here for a little break!
Don't do anything I wouldn't do! ;)
See you in 2014!

My Velocity Darker Forces: Degeneration Page

Here's a preview panel for the page I did for Velocity Anthology's Darker Forces: Degeneration.
Its an awesome collaborative comic project featuring the work of many South African and Australian comic artists.

This time I chose to work all digital as opposed to my usual preference of pen and ink on bristol board.

I wonder why I got given a battle scene to do? ;)

Demise of Nations game cover illustration

Finally the inks for my Demise of Nations cover illustration is finished.
Battle scenes like this just take a very long time to do, but its so worth the effort!

Demise of Nations is a game by Noble Master Games. Go have a look at the game's progress on their twitter feed - I think it's looking great!

Now to get to coloring this beast!
