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.

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….
