Fantasy pictures from my sketchbook.

Demon Designs 3

Here’s my idea for the Demon cavalry; rather than having demonic knights(I may design some later, reading that does sound cool!) I thought they should use centaur-like Demons.
I had to keep the image away from Games Workshop Dragon-Ogres and Zoats, and Blizzard’s Pit Lords or Diablo 3’s Siegebreaker Assault Beasts. So I had a look at the Terror Dogs from Ghostbusters, crossed them with alligators/crocodiles and with an image in my head of a huge monstrous beast charging into the lines of shiny-armoured, spear-wielding humans I think I got there!

This was done straight onto the computer again in Painter X.

Demon Designs 2

More demon designs, this time drawn directly onto the computer (I usually start with a physical sketch). These are the foot-soldiers; enthusiastic cannon fodder for the demon legions. All the troops start their existence as a larval demon (the correct rituals, feeding and sacrifices create different troop types).

My brother had the idea for the demon spawn; failed, malformed demons from who usually get eaten or very occasionally adopted as mascots. Somewhat like the wormy creatures that emerged from The Trapdoor (an old UK TV stop-motion cartoon show, have a look if you’ve not heard of it!).

Planar Alchemist gear

I’m working on a few things right now (not paid work alas!);  one of which is a composition involving various monsters and a Planar Alchemist.  Here are a couple of pages (A5 and A3) of designs for the archaic re-breather and dimensional-hopping devices.  The device is partly based on the Antikythera mechanism; as an historical example of an ancient computer.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism
