A Castle in Monotone

My interpretation of a fantasy castle, influenced by the literary works of Robert E Howard and the art of Barry Windsor-Smith.

I modeled the castle in the 3D modeling application Groboto 3D 3.5. Further detailing was done using Photoshop CC 2018, Topaz Studio Impression, Filter Forge 7 & ArtRage 5.0.

Traditional Styled Hot Rod Sedan

An Old Skool hot rod powered by a flat head V8. These were the kinds of hot rods that were the norm when I was growing up and one of the reasons I feel in love with the cool cars which were so popular and showcased in all the popular hot rod magazines.

Illustration is based on a 3D model I created from scratch using Hexagon 3D w.5 and Silo 2.0.

Rendered in Daz Studio with 3D Delight renderer. Post work in Photoshop CC 2018, Topaz Studio Impression and Filter Forge 7.0.

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.
