I've been inspired to start this sketch book, by the brilliant work of a good friend and colleague.
The work I'm posting goes back over a few years.
By day I work as a game artist, by night as an illustrator.
When I'm lucky from time to time I get to concept art for projects that the studio are pitching for.
This does not happen as often as I would like and it nearly always involves me working on the concepts in my own time.
I though it would be good for me to get all this work together and maybe some of you will find it interesting in some small way.
Over time you will see that I have had to adapt my style to fit what the art director and sometimes the style of game required.
I'll also try to post some of the freelance illustration work that I've been lucky enough to do.
Any and all feedback is most welcome.

great to see you posting here, Steve. Can't wait to see how this sketchbook develops.
Such a shame about that project eh? Anyway, keep posting, I know you have so much fantastic stuff to show and this is the best place to share your talent.

Okay, not many responses.
I guess I'll keep going see what develops.
I was asked to concept some characters for a Manga style online game.
This is the only one I've done so far, been to busy with "other" stuff.
The original drawing was coloured in Illustrator, the taken into PhotoShop
and given the effects.

emmm, maybe I'm spitting in the wind here?
Okay deep breath and go again.
This image was done for a magazine cover titled Wasted.
Pencil drawing scanned then coloured in Photoshop.
The background was taken from another image that I had already done.
I'll get round to posting that another time.

This is another one you know only to well.
Another one that got away
Still this little lot will show the change in style to "fit in" with the
view about what "concept art" for games should look like by those with the power.
I'll start with the very first image.
One of the designers wanted to do a new take on an old game.
After speaking to him this was the first image.
I'll post the stages as we went through them.

For the kind comments and for being the "first" person to post that I don't know

Right here's stage two of the game concept.
I had to produce an image that the studio could show the publisher.
The image had to give a flavour and feel of what the studio wanted to do with the game.
I had very little time to do the image.
It seemed to do the trick, the publisher liked it
The next stage will be some of the bikes and characters.

Now the change in style, dipping my toe in a more "painty" style.
