down from the mountain they come..

here are some illustrations of the giants in the fey comic I am currently working on. I thought of them more as a different race to the other fey but having different breeds of giant, there's the typical giant that's ranges from 10-12 feet tall, these guys are the basic and most common giants which starts the first story arc of the comic. the second however are the hill strider's, vast colossal beings whom are rare compared to their smaller cousins. more to come soon

im not that kind of doctor actually..

another character for the comic, actually one of the main characters before the team gathers, Dr John Tute. scholar, geologist, naturalist, archivist in all the archetypal scholar. having studied in depth in the field of myth and folklore Tute was ridiculed by fellow academics being called an odd ball strange. it however seemed to have paid off due to the circumstances..

mechanic here..

yet another character fresh of the press. his name is Higgins, hes the engineer of the group hence his sooty appearance, hes a big tough guy who answers back and doesn't take shit, maybe due to his first name being a little on the feminine side..

Alfred Campbell a noted explorer and ex soldier who after serving with the army changed his views on colonialism and instead chose to travel and learn the languages of the different indigenous peoples of the world. our other character is lord Charles Remington. once a officer in the British army he retired after accusations of unnecessary force, he is now a leading power in the houses of parliament and it is whispered works on special duties for the queen.

a story unfolds..

currently me and a good friend are working on a comic. yes that's right a comic. having just witnessed the awesome event that was comic con Cardiff (hardly San Diego i know but give a welsh man a beak) i was inspired to create my own comic with my mate writing and me illustrating. here's one character so far hes a fey hunter and a damn tough one at that. his name is Robert Finnegan or "bobby Finn" by his fighting name. hes an Irish man in the service of  queen Victoria, aye its a rough time being Irish and fighting fey folk but hey she pays well.

don your marshal star and grab your Winchester Mcabe's here

I was just doodling as i am sure any sane artist does when you have free time, and it occurred to me that i don't usually draw guns. i don't know whether its because i subconsciously don't like them or if i find them hard to draw so i thought why not give it a go. i myself am a huge fan of westerns and the 1800s in general really. Everyone even the working classes looked smart and i think it should come back around to be fair so i thought about how i could keep this western feel and change it a bit. i didn't want to go on the steam punk root but more alternate world line maybe but here's the initial concept anyway.

go to ground..

here's some more miner sketches I have been working on, hopefully ill get my camera working and put up the model of the welsh miner for the meantime enjoy :)
