These are my weapon ideas for the Bears. I started with the idea of giving the father Bear a huge rotating cannon (a bit like the Soviet WWII machine guns) but then my brother had the idea of a hammer for the father and a machine gun with a sickle magazine for the mother! So I think I’ll do that.
Here’s a quick composition I drew for this competition. Goldilocks has got out of her armour to search the cave/bunker inhabited by the bear-mutants and they have returned from their patrol to find her. I need to work out the actual weapons for the Bears and Goldilock’s flying armour thing.
Here are some of ideas for the the retro powered armour that the neo-soviet mother and father bears will be wearing. The idea is that the bears have left their cave/bunker on patrol (maybe they heard jet engines?) and returned to find it destroyed by Goldilocks’ flying power-suit and a surprised Goldilocks; maybe out of her armour.
I plan to create a picture based on the famous tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. My alternate version would have Goldilocks as a punky, American ex-special forces woman and the three bears Neo-soviet mutant/hybrids. Here are my designs for the bears:
A steampunk version of The Green Knight whom Sir Gawain faces (twice). I have portrayed him in his guise as Sir Bernilak de Hautdesert (who always goes hunting whilst his wife tempts Sir Gawain) and also in his Green Knight form. I imagined him cranking himself up on plant-stuff into a steampunk cross between Bane and Swamp Thing. This gives him superior regenerative abilities, green skin and thorns, vine-like muscles and he doesn’t need to go to war in a gas-mask given the power of the green goo. This comes with the price of being addicted to the goo and also being in thrall to Morgana Le Fay who developed this technology.
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
Here are the larger drawings:
This was an idea I had a few years ago and hadn’t really done it justice the first time around. Essentially I’d re-create Grant Wood’s famous American Gothic painting with Lavinia, Old Wizard and Wilbur Whately from H. P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror. The finished picture is in my gallery here:
These are some designs for a planar alchemist; someone who uses alchemy to open portals between dimensions.
And here are some pictures of the alchemical symbols that he would have on his robe. I tried to create a vaguely logical approach to these designs to add an element of authenticity.
These are the first ideas I had for a fight scene picture. It will be set in my Twilight World; a world with a perpetual stormy sky and lots of ruins. I thought this a suitable location for a fantasy picture. This monster is a larger version of the toad-like demons in an illustration I did:
These are characters I’ve designed for a H.P. Lovecraft themed picture(or series of pictures) I’m was working on but have had to stop to finish some other artwork.
These are the heroes of course. All the 1920’s clothing is as accurate as I can get from my reference materials. Fonts are by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical society.
