OLSEN, you had better get your ass back into gear to finish that Thunderdome entry... it was looking badass my friend. Suck it up and finish! :chug:
Strych9ine-> Thanks mate, its good to hear that from you. :beer:
But the main reason i dumped Moses was that the teqnique (spelling??) i used was really timeconsuming, the last version of the WIP of the character was something like 70% done, and then i had to add the background aswell and that would take another 10 hours.. It was a kind of experiment for me to see how detailed i could go without going crazy, and well, i went to far with it.
In other words, Moses as you have seen him wont make it to thunderdome.. Hopefully i will get back on the train when the final images start to drop in and the muse speaks to me again.
I finally have a scanner, so this thread will be updated a bit more often from now on, but not too often, i dont want to spend all my time scanning and not drawing.
Markers and ballpoint. One of my "best" sketches in a while, i like the feel.
A sketch i tried to save, you can still see the original linework under the black, i think it turned out ok though. Markers, ballpoint and white pencil.
Drop comments if you have them.
Good to see your pen and inks . cool style
are u in school ?
Thanks, glad you like my style.
And, no, im not in school. I work from home doing rpg illustrations and 28mm figure sculpting. Itīs very bad pay but atleast i get to draw and sculpt all day long without feeling bad about it.
The DSG topic was "Dragonslayer Sword" so i made this broken blade with ballpoints and markers. I usually stay away from drawing weapons unless itīs part of a character or a scene, but if itīs a DSG itīs a DSG... I think it turned out ok so here it is:
And a failed marker sketch i did my best to save in photoshop:
Comment if you have any.

really cool stuff, i dig the black and whites a lot the color piece gets muddy with all the use of brown in your colors. but it has a good sense of light overall, good stuff
thanks for commenting siskol p.
Cool you like my black and whites, thats my main focus at the moment, well, actually it has always been my main focus, but i wish i had more time to practise my colors, i see your point about the muddy colors, oh well..
I posted this in the orc thread in "its finally finished", but putting it here too so it wont slip into oblivion.
Comments makes my day.
The "Hanging" one is my new wallpaper!
Some updates, you have most probably seen all of these in the orc thread in the "finaly finished" section, but i post them here in the hopes to get some feedback on them.
Be cool, post a comment.
VAST improvement on the colors that red one with the army is HOT!!! definatly the winner of the color pieces you've done so far. i'd keep to what you're doing (basically 2 colors split compliments...) its working well for you, and the detail is there as well.. like i said, MUCH improved...
Iīve been working my ass off lately searching for a quick and good looking style for my colors, so it really makes my day that somebody noticed improvement. Iīll keep them coming.
yeah keep up the colours for sure.
I especially like your latest orc-pieces. One can see the improvement and fun you had with this topic. The style of the orcs reminds me a bit of Ian Miller, a british illustrator I really loke. If you donīt know his works, yet, have a look at them. Very dark and gothic!
<Insert witty remark here>
Thanks for the reply Fipse.
I made a search for Ian Miller on Google but all i got was some minimal thumbnails and a babyblue dragon that wasnt gothic at all. If you have a good link to his work it would be great if you posted it. I think i recognice his name from Games Workshop, am i wrong about that?
Yeah, he did some work for Games Workshop in the late 80īs/early nineties (e.g. 3rd edtition Warhammer Fantasy Battle/Realm of Chaos) when their stuff wasnīt so heavily pre-visualized.
But heīs done more stuff. Heīs done great illustrations for the "lord of the rings" and an attended bestiary, moviework, coverart etc. Hereīs a bit about him: http://www.deliriummag.com/ianmiller.html
Most work I connect with him is black and white pendrawing with masses of details.

Is "loke" sort of like the median of like and love... if it's a typo it was a beneficial mistake. At least for me... I'm gonna start using that word.Originally posted by Fipse

I really like all these sketches... especially the hanging one and the sword. You're color work looks great as well.
Thanks for the link, now i know who he is, and now im going to browse through all my old white dwarfs to see if i can find his art there, i really like that guys style.
Miniguns and religious fanatics. Just for fun.
Markers, inks and gouache. Just for fun.
