@Care: It's there - check up and right from the desolation of Valyria on the map of Slaver's Bay. There's a big city at the mouth of the Rhoyne - that's Volantis. There's a detail of the city here.
In 2012 I was commissioned to illustrate the official maps of Westeros and Essos for the world of Game of Thrones. Each map is 3 feet by 2 feet in size, 72 square feet of maps in total, and they're...
Here's another finished piece that I've recently been allowed to show off. This one's a dwarven city created for the game setting Rhune: Dawn of Twilight.
Here's an older map that recently got released as a map pack:
and a personal project WIP:
So this has been a while.
Here's a few new map tiles. I'll be updating with some of the other bits and pieces I've been working on over the next couple of weeks.
Thanks a lot - nice sketchbook by the way. Like the knight :)
Great work - you've done a good job of tackling the issue you were having with blurry edges. Also, the progression on your rendering of metals from the top of this page to the knight is great. I...
Continuing the week's apple theme...
Hot Apple Martini:
Sliced apple for Tart Tatin recipe - agreed by our friends in New York to totally get you laid if you cooked it for a date:...
A few more. Not sure quite what went on in the middle of the week - there's a clear hiccup there - but the apple went better for today's apple and warm camembert salad:
First off, steak and...
Looking good. I like the life drawing exercises near the top of this page - those are great ways of finding the weighting in the poses. Interesting developments. Good stuff!
Check out the blog and you'll find the way to cook all of those :) They're actually really easy - even the fancy things. Chocolate pots are possibly the easiest and quickest dessert recipe ever.
The glass and the chocolate pot - I know. Thanks for pulling me up on them :)
Good job with these. It's clear that where you really focus on the detail you do a really great job. The texture on the banana screen is great - and really paid off. The reflected room on the...
Thanks! It's been fun working on the blog - my wife's a trained cordon bleuchef, and when we have friends over for dinner in NY they kept asking her how to cook the recipes. After telling them it was...
I'll take that as a very good thing - but I have to admit that I'm not quite sure how roast chicken=Tom and Jerry!
Here's a few more from recent posts.
The Cartographers’ Guild, in partnership with the Soho Gallery for Digital Art, presents Mapping the Big Apple....
Gin fizz in a teacup to counteract the Americana of Labor Day:
And a roast chicken for the section on how to roast meats:
This was mostly an experiment with colour and texture - trying to get a feel of the crispy toasted skin that makes roast...
Thanks :) I was pretty pleased with the tomato.
Here's some blueberries - continuing the labor day theme with 5 easy labor day desserts.
Heirloom tomato - for the red in some red white and blue labor day recipes:
Possibly the greatest ingredient ever created. This chocolate bar has been used to illustrate a sizable number of recipes:
Shirley Temple mocktail for Wednesday (and popcorn recipe here):
This one's a bit different - and much more an instructional step by step than an illustration for eye-candy. This show the four steps for creating a feta and mango chutney ravioli parcel using a...
All in photoshop - but the fact that you asked if they were watercolour made my day. Thanks!
I use a hard round to do the outline - a sort of pen drawing. Then a large splattery brush on low...
