The Dentist


Since I haven't been up to much painting or drawing lately here's one from the vast archives of thing awaiting to be finished.This one has been there since 2009 and apparently is never going to get more polished or finished than that. I still quite like the idea so I might do something more based on it in the future.

Figures In Line

Here's a bit more, decided to switch to something simple first until I'm totally comfortable with line sketching digitally(I have the feeling I might need a bigger tablet for that). The third one is from reference photo the others totally random. I need to go into suggesting a bit more subtle details and using finer lines I think.

Line Exercises


I've decided that's about time to take some steps to improving my line drawing skills, especially getting used to do it with the the tablet. So here are some quick experiments on top of simple thumbnail sketches I did to a different degree of success. Switching back to line after years of mostly painting and quick sketchy thumbnails is way harder than I expected, and makes me thing about going back to some serious figure studies for a while. More of those to come soon!

Land Ship (Old Stuff)

Here's one that's been sitting unfinished in my work folder for more than an year, finally decided to patch it up quickly and let it go. Experimented with brushes quite a lot, ended a bit too grainy for my liking, suggesting textures and the way they change in perspective it still something I need more practice of.

Medicine Woman




Initial sketch

I've been always fascinated by early human history(Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age) and I've been plying around with different ideas based around similar topics, with the ultimate goal of creating a short illustrated alternate history of one such tribe, in an invented alternate world...someday. Here's a random character based on an old thumbnail.

BRINK - Container City - Market Square

Orthodox Police - Light Priests



Here are some more old [neo]martyr concepts/thumbnails.
Those are the three branches of the priest class of the Orthodox police in their light to medium variants.

The Apostle - a sort of a battle priest missionary type character using a range of light weapons. Adept at dealing with hostile situations.

The Holy Smoker - bearing a range of large incense burners and staves and the heavy robes of a higher order.

The Proclamator - Voice of the law of the church.

Five Helmets


Here are five quickly rendered in B/W helmets, part of a series of 100 that I never finished. Mostly because I planed to render all of them in this way. Will probably post the rest of them at some point in whatever state they're in when I have time to assemble them :). The designs are completely random, just an exercise.

Centrifuge Outcasts Head Mechanic


This one is a paint over an old sketch I did for the [neo]martyr project ages ago, I decided to paint it over recently, but the overall lack of perspective and depth to the portrait finally managed to put me off polishing it more. Nevertheless a good exercise that helped me realise some things that I was lacking and need to study more. Also I think that In my attempts to fix problems with the initial sketch I lost a lot of the character and attitude I had going on there.

Random Locations


Random eviroment studies of locations from Google Street View, found trough http://www.mapcrunch.com/. I've planed to do one each launch break this week but managed to find time only for 3. Maybe 3 per week is a more realistic number, we shall see.
