Sketches from Scratch



After relying a lot on photo-ref for a while now I decided I needed to go back to zero and experiment with brushes and light. These are some that could withstand the light of day. I learned a lot from some lectures at the Industry Workshop event in London last month. Especially Jama's one on brush efficiency was eye opening. I might be addicted to his brush set...

The Arq



Some quick speedpaints originally done for the UT challenge over on Polycount but I didn't finish or submit anything. Just didn't have the time. The idea was to create a level based an futuristic ark that held many specimen from all over the universe. Would've been great to do a sci-fi environment for once.

Penny For Your Thought


Sorry for the camera snaps but I like them better this way. I've been keeping a file open while I work on other stuff to quickly jot down any random ideas I have.

Portrait Practise


I thought it was time to do some portrait practise. I found some photo's I like and I tried to paint them in a bit of a different way. I really enjoyed playing with the values and colours. Next up will probably be my Dark Souls inspired sketches, I'm addicted to that game!

Helios - The Gates Of Hathor


Done for my personal project Helios. It's a mix of photo-bashing and painting. I spend too much time on it already and even-though it's not exactly the way I imagined it too be I think it was a good learning experience!
The House of Hathor, was a long held sanctuary for the elderly and weak. Known for it's crop-growing and clothing making Sisters of Hathor. A notorious "wave" (a group of mercenaries, swordsmen and skilled fighters) forced entrance and took over, turning the once so peaceful House in an outpost full of thieves, whores and the desperate. Welcome to New-Hathor.

Even though the killing of "clones" is outlawed, these vigilantes patrol the streets to rid the world of them.Their headsensor is able to pick up the magnetic-field generated a "clone" a block away.

Some Random Sketches




I just needed to do something else instead of work for a bit, so I did some late night sketches just before bed. I'd almost forgotten how much fun this can be.

The Abandoned Dwarven Towers of Muirendhor - Double Lunch-Break Speedpaint

The result of two lunch-breaks, I think I failed miserably when it comes to composition and values but I still wanted to share it. "The Abandoned Dwarven Towers of Muirendhor" In my universe Dwarfs like to compensate for their short stature.
