Luddites old pics (in the right thread this time)

Great pics!

 

Especially the first one who by virtue of that cable coming out of his skull, has now become the BBEG for a campaign I'm currently running.  My deepest thanks.

OK, here's a few more i've dug out...

 

DH101.jpg

DH102.jpg

My shadowrun troll street samurai...

DH103.jpg

Some historical illustrations...could do for WHFRP?

DH104.jpg

DH105.jpg

DH107.jpg

My 'Highlander' character (we used a Vampire the Masquerade coversion for the rules)

DH108.jpg

YThis was a commission for an American friend of mine...well a parting gift really...

DH109.jpg

DH112.jpg

These last three were test pieces i did for Flame Publications WHFRP 1e Lustrian Suppliment (never made it to print).  Carl Sergeant's main comments were 'more spikey'!

The pieces are larger than my scanner, hence the blurring...

Not really.  I had a few peices published by Valkyrie (early issues, pre the quarterly relaunch).

And as i said, Flame Publications gave me the commission for 15 pieces for their Lustrian Supplement (that never made it past planning so wasn't published). 

Other than that i've had a fair bit published in archaeological journals, but thats about it.

I tried to get into the  industry in the late 80's early 90's but never quite made it...sad.gif  ...then the need to actually make a living earning money sort of got in the way.  Oh well...

enfadado.gif  You can't edit these posts without bumping them up.  Apologies everyone.

OK, here's a couple of 'professional' (i.e. published in archaeological journals) pieces i did a while back.  Not 40k or fantasy, so apologies for the lack of spikes...

Cheers Hoodedcrow!

I guess that's what any illustrator tries to do - capture the essence of the subject so i'm glad you picked that out.  gran_risa.gif

Personally i think its a bit 'old hat' now, as an image...a bit '2nd edition'. 

Ah well...time marches on...happy.gif

It's rare that someone with an actual professional level of talent posts their work. Great to see, and really fascinating. It's a little sad that they're all in the 80's 90's style that GW was favouring back then. To me, it says you haven't been keeping up your efforts, which is a shame. It'd be nothing less than magnificent if some of your artwork was to feature in, and help shape the world of, Dark heresy or Rogue Trader.

Cheers Loque.

High praise indeed.  sonrojado.gif

Its also true to say that its been a good few years since i knocked out a scribble or two.  My creative juices have been flowing elsewhere.

That said, i'm dabbling with Photoshop at the moment trying to get myself up to speed with this new fangled technology.  In general i'm also getting interested in my artwork again so i may post up something more contemporary if i can get something produced that i like.

Dark Heresy has really inspired me to look at producing 40k imagery that isn't all 'spikes and guns'...

Firstly he is after all luddite, secondly I personally prefer the 'old' style of art (or in this case Luddite's) to the vast majority of art currently finding its way into many GW and current WFRP and DH lines. I especially hate whoever the main WFRP artist is (not as a person mind you -- but the art.) Hardy thumbs up to Luddite.

remind me of older Adrian Smith.

Now, this might sound like an insult, please bare with me, it isn't meant as an insult- Adrian Smith looked quite bad in the early nineties and these remind me of his work back then-

 

HOWEVER!

 

Adrian Smith is one of the better artists in the world of RPG and wargaming nowadays. Seeing how well he evolved you should practice and you will get there also! (one ofthe better artists in the world that is!)

 

Keep it up!
