As some of you may have noticed, I have made a few additions to my site. The ones of note are the Mike Bennett page - giving you a short bio of the author and a short list of his works.

Also I have added a page called Die Chronik von Elum. This is about a friends new website dedicated to his pen and paper RPG.

The reason for these additions is quite simple, I have and im in the process of creating artwork for them both


You will notice to the left of this page under the link banners, a small adchoices banner, I would greatly appreciate it if you all click on it as it will help provide funding for future updates to this site as I shall soon be moving to a private domain which isn't cheap, and after all, its not much to ask as I provide images for your viewing pleasure for free. The good news is, clicking the link cost you nothing at all so I thank you all in advance. Just to be random, I would also like to say HPZF8YUYSK68

Underwood leaves Almacena

This was more of an experiment into creating a smoky image effect in photoshop. The background was made in hexagon then rendered in Vue. For the bat i used a standard stock image. I desaturated the bat,  used a soft eraser brush to blend in some of the harsh edges on the picture left from cutting it out then placed it onto a new layer and set the opacity to 70% and set the blending mode to screen.

I also added some smoke with a brush pack I downloaded but before that, I  added some smoke by just using the brush tool for its wings.

I made another  new layer, set its opacity to about 70% and then use the soft eraser brush to blend the smoke in with the bat and background layer.

Finally I made yet another new layer, filled it with a light blue then set its blending mode to overlay and dropped the opacity to around 30%

From Beyond Still

Whilst rooting around my artwork drive, I came across this still of Crawford Tillinghast. It is the first frame from they story where our protagonist describes the dishevelled figure with candle in hand at the entrance to his house.

Theft at the Imaginarium!!!


Well the title says it all! A friend of mine has alerted me to 2 certain websites that have taken my artwork and posted them as their own work the scoundrels!! Now while I don't mind people using my artwork, indeed some of you already have and this I am quite happy with this, what I do mind is people claiming it is their work.

What this means for you the readers on my insane mind is unfortunately, I shall in future be adding a watermark which is IMHO somewhat intrusive to your viewing pleasure, I shall however have copies of the same work without watermark for those of you who wish a copy, but for that, you will have to ask for it. I'm sorry that I am forced to do this but I really have no choice.

Die Chronik von Elum

I have added a new page to my blog dedicated to Die Chronik von Elum.  An RPG by my good friend Jens Maskus, who late last year approached me to create some concept art for his game, Click the image above or the link on the top left of this page
