Sorry. I got a girlfriend now, and as such, I've sacrificed producing personal art so I could focus on her. I've managed to start working a schedule that gives me more art time, so here's a few recents. I may have posted the tree/bird one before, but this one is touched-up if I have. I'll double check and delete my least favorite version.
I can't believe how awesome this place is. I'm really loving the sculpture! I wanna try! You guys rocketh.
I would have liked to have some new work to post along with this little plug but I'm plugging it anyway. Planet to Planet - is a collective of sketches by concept artist Mike Corriero including hundreds of pencil and pen drawings covering robots, environments, alien life forms and tons of creatures.
A collection of hundreds of my sketches have been compiled into a small 67 page collectible art "sketchbook" that can be Ordered Here: http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/planet-to-planet/8594985 for those of you who order the book I'd appreciate a small review on lulu and rating if you have the time. Thanks, hope you enjoy it. COUPON CODE: FreeShip
and if we ever meet in person and you have the book, I'll draw something in one of the blank pages.
The demons of the forests and mountains are separate from the race of humans. They emerged in an earlier Creation, made by older gods. The ones that have survived into the age of the current Creation are powerful and strange, but rarely seen. Occasionally, though, the demons grow covetous and lustful. Distrustful of each other, they vent their desires upon humans, who are too weak to resist. When a male demon mates with a female human, the union always results in a child, for a demon's seed is powerful, and the child is always male. These children go by many names, but the most common name, spat out with disgust by husbands and fathers, is Bastard.
I sketched this guy out months ago, but it was only recently that I dusted him off and rendered him up.
If you have the time, please check out the short story I wrote about this character. Link.
Here's a digital sketch of a similar sort of character. I'm planning on doing five of these characters, all half-brothers, as well as the demon who fathered them.
Shameless promotion - my first solo show. The show runs for a week, from 27th May until 2nd June, the private viewing is on the 27th, anyone london based who wants to come, email me at email@example.com.
I will have six new works unseen before at the exhibition, including a taxidermied 7 foot tall werewolf.
Here's what I've been working on lately -- WIP version of my newest maquette. His name is Bucephalus, after the horse of Alexander the great.. whose name means ox head (or bull head, or something like that). He's going to have a rider, whose head you can see in the corner there. It's my first attempt at using doll's hair on one of these things, and it's gone so well I may just have to do it again! Pretty simple to do and works a treat. As you can see, I've also made a number of packs and stuff to put on his back -- I'm going to paint him first, paint the packs and attach it all together later. Ehh.. I'll work that stuff out as I go. I've also got some plans for reins, but we'll have to see how that goes as well.
It's not much of a guess to find out that I've always really loved Dinotopia (James Gurney has a truly excellent blog that he updates pretty much daily, for those who are interested). Though I don't think the people in Dinotopia would be so crass as to put a bridle on a Styracosaurus, it's not source material so much as inspiration!
