Fantasy Images

A few digital illustrations I recently created which were inspired by my love of fantasy, sword & socrery fiction such as the works of Robert E Howard’s Conan the Barbarian, King Kull & Solomon Kane. And comic book artist Barry Windsor-Smith. No other artist drew Conan better then Barry Windsor-Smith.

Perhaps Frank Frazetta but his works were paintings and not comic book art.

The Sorceress Mage

Female Pike Guard – Warrior

War Beast – A massive and very powerful melee fighter.

Airship Over Future City

A steam powered airship flies over a distant, future city in dystopian world. I modeled the airship in Hexagon3D & Groboto. The buildings are the dystopian city blocks from Cornucopia3D. Scene was rendered in Vue Complete 2015 using the NPR settings. With details and adjustments made in Photoshop CC 2015 & ArtRage 4.5.27047993866_564dbf9fe4_b

1936 Buick “lowrider”

Hot Rod Sedan

This is my interpretation of a typical American hot rod. Hot rods originated in southern California when returning WWII soldiers wanted to create an American equivalent of the light and nimble sports cars of Europe (MGs, Alfa Romeos, etc). Suped up engines mostly V8s were swapped in place of the original motors. To help improve performance body parts were often removed. Fenders, bumpers, hoods, running boards were often shed to increase the horsepower to weight ratio of the vehicle.

In this image I used a late 1920s, early 1930s sedan body as the basis for the car. Powered by a early model Ford flathead V8 which
is supercharged with three carburetors. The roof of the sedan has been chopped to reduce it’s height.

I created the car from scratch using 3D modeling apps. The bulk of the modeling was done in Hexagon 3D and Silo 3D. For UV mapping I used 3DCoat. Textures were created in Photoshop and applied in Vue Complete 2015, where the scene was  rendered.

And a NPR render in Vue Complete 2015, I masked out the background from the render and substituted a paper texture in Photoshop…

Grobo Car (3D version)

25294907361_6ca0f54700_c

I designed the Grobo Car as a future rear engine hot rod. I modeled the car from scratch using 3D modeling applications Groboto 3D v 3.3 (90%) & Hexagon 3D v 2.5 (10%). The car was textured using shaders in Vue Complete 2015. It was also rendered in Vue Complete. Slight postwork in Photoshop 2015 CC.

The car is influenced by my love of hot rods, American cars of the 1930s to 1950s and foreign sports cars.

I named the vehicle Grobo after Groboto 3D of which I did the bulk of the modeling in…

The 2D version of my Grobo car can be seen here

Billy Bishop – WWI Ace Pilot

24422489094_05193b6287_c

Billy Bishop glances over his shoulder at the plumenting German plane he has just shot down while an approaching German pilot opens fire from above.

William Avery Bishop is credited with 72 victories in the air and was a Victoria Cross recipient of the First World War. He is considered Canada’s top pilot of WWI.

In this illustration I have Bishop flying the French built Nieuport 17 with the top mounted Lewis machine gun. The Royal Flying Corps found the fuselage mounted Vickers guns to be unreliable and often had them omitted. The Vickers machine gun was synchronised to fire through the propeller.

I created this illustration using my computer, Wacom tablet, ArtRage, Corel Painter & Photoshop….
