I've been meaning to get posting again for too long now, so I thought it time I got in gear. These are quick sketches straight into PShop, some with reference and usually about 30~40 minute jobs during lunchbreaks. They represent a couple of ideas / themes I've got in my head at the moment, the idea being I shall return to something once I'm happier with it to paint up further. Or model it. Or both. Thanks for looking.

Reason: Update news
Thanks very much, abisheridee. Am trying to rustle up some life classes as, like you so; SO important. Thanks for posting too! I think my thread very quickly dropped the ranks as the sketchbook threads get added to / updated so regularly.
Cheers, Alucid! I've been distracted of late with other projects, but I'll post that up when I get it to a good state. I've got some older stuff knocking about in the depths of the 'Org somewhere. Here in fact http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=147311 if you're interested.
Liz: Thanks! I've another Star Wars related project idea that I'll kick off this week, and post results here.
Bombur: Cheers for posting. If you mean the Roman / slavegirl piece I doubt it'll move much further. I do like the roman and greek armour designs though, and I'm quite partial to scantily clad women also! So the themes may be carried forward.
Another little project I've been thinking about over the past few days which I managed to sketchout earlier. I spent a couple of hours painting it up this afternoon, based on a painting by another artist (Dorman?). I've attached his/her inspirational piece below also. Basically, a vision of the Imperial Royal Guard of Star Wars fame. They don't feature very much in the movies, which is a shame. They just kinda float around like cardinals with halloween masks on. I thought it'd be good to look under the red cape!
Thought I'd take the Redguard a stage further, as it'd be nice to get him more 'finished'. To this end, I'll make a few pieces in 3d and comp something together. Starting with the iconic helmet design.
