krampus creature character designs

Just thought I'd post an early Krampus head design to show where I was coming from together with a more finished version!

Sketches from my sketchbook.

Ok sometimes we have to calibrate ourselves with some good old humanoid sketches. Anatomy really is the root to all evil. I design and illustrate evil creatures, the fundamental base of these is an understanding of anatomy, form, weight etc etc. Not only that, I love to sketch! I take my sketch book everywhere, never miss an opportunity.Without further ado, here are a few! Ok I had to add a little fantasy here and there!

Without further ado, here are a few:)

Some fantasy dragon concepts

Here are a couple of quick dragon Sketches I did!

Hurakan god of storms book cover illustration and saxon warrior in snow storm!

Ok I'm on a roll now, can't stop myself! The next two images I've created for a couple of challenges ran by Jon Schindehette, art director for Dungeons & Dragons (Wizards of the coast). Really great guy, holds lots of challenges and gives tons of helpful advice to aspiring artists. The warrior snow scene was a one off challenge and the other (Hurakan) finishes this coming Sunday. The Hurakan challenge was 6 stages, the image here is from stage 5.

If you are an illustrator/artist I strongly recommend you check out Jon's Artorder blog! here's the link:

Update: Just added my final image for the Hurakan challenge which Jon was running at artorder! I included a version with and without the text. 

Frankenstein monster character design.

At last my first post...yippeee. I'm going to treat this blog as an area to show things I'm working on, a sort of WIP. I'm also setting up a website too. Thought I'd better get something out in the void! I need to empty my hard drive  of hideous creatures.

My first post is a character I've been working on. A sort of Frankenstein creation. Early stages, have to finish the full character soon so a 3D'er can bring it to life!
