Two years of ImagineFX stuff... (And a couple more on Page 2!)
It's been a long, long time since i've posted here, and i thought about doing this a year ago when i'd done one year's worth of ImagineFX work, but it's been a crazy year for me, with some of the biggest highs and deepest lows of my life (both personally and professionally), and i've not visited any of my favourite forums as often as i would've liked. So i thought i'd break a habit and chuck some stuff at the 'finally finished' section...
Two years ago a stranger called Rob Carney emailed me and asked if i'd like to submit a tutorial for a new magazine he was launching called 'ImagineFX'. I knocked together something about a barbarian called Bjorn for the first issue. Since then I've done a bunch of stuff for the team at IFX, some of which i like and some of which i don't (But it's still nearly all here!). But everything i have done has been free from unnecessary intereference, a great opportunity to get my work 'out there', an important learning experience and was ultimately the kick up the butt to make the jump to freelance.
Most of these images were for workshops on themes like 'Photoshop Brushes', 'Learning Painter' or similar and a few were for the Q&A section or to illustrate tips. There's quite a bit here, so sorry if it's slow to download.....
Bjorn, from Issue01, being nice to garden birds:
A shepherd and a troll and a few sheep, for a workshop on using CS2's brushes, an illustration of 'Red Riding Hood', an alien squashed into a UFO, and a fella with a ogre's head:
A character, Chimpski, that started off as a valentine's day card for my girlfriend. I used it as a header on an article and then for a three-part workshop on learning Painter. My first three paintings using Painter IX!!

And here are a few more... running up to the October 2007 issue, which featured the 'Siren' image and the 'Uncle Sam' tribute on the back cover.
'Circus Freako', an ongoing personal project which i used as a basis for a 'character concept' workshop.
The 'Highland Minotaur', painted using a pre-release beta version of Painter X for a promotional booklet accompanying IFX:
Another personal project, that may be published (in some form) next year, a poster for 'the King of Space":
The back cover for October 2007's 'Pin Up' issue, this was traced over the silhouette of Uncle Sam and tweaked a bit:
And my most recent workshop, "The Siren". I like drawing pirates. They're all scruffy, and gnarly and greedy for treasure and girls:

Fantastic, i've already see some of your pieces, but the whole thing is really intergalactic.
Chimpski is really gorgeous.

Great stuff Jonny. I can't remember seeing Chimpski in the tree. I'll have to trawl through my back issues. I really like how you injected the essence of Uncle Sam into the Martian. It really looks like Sam and yet it doesn't, quite spooky. Hope you get more highs than lows next year.
