It's been a couple of years since I started drawing again with anything approaching seriousness, and I thought I'd re-visit something I'd played with back then to see how I'd progressed. I think the realism went up, if the soul went down.

More Champions Villains

These character designs are from Hero Games' Champions Villains Book III.

By this third book I feel I was actually getting the illustrations right. It seems I may take a while but I get there in the end.

These three are 'The Monster', a supernatural movie-monster type. 'Lamplighter', a sinister fella who is supposed to have some resemblence to Patrick Stewart. 'Bulldozer', a vain and somewhat stupid villain, but one I remember from actually playing the game over 20 years ago!
All the characters are ©2010 Hero Games, and Champions Villains III, together with many other fine Hero products can be found at http://www.herogames.com/home.htm;jsessionid=an1Twjw2kHy7

Idiot Wind

These are just a couple of pages from a self written piece called Idiot Wind.

I haven't included any dialogue here, as the pages were really just a style test.

St John's church

A drawing done for fun.

Wander across the road. Sketch. Wander back. Drink coffee.

Nice day.

Champions Villains

These are a few of the character illustrations I've been doing for the three upcoming 'Champions Villains' books. Unusually I got to do the illustrations in colour this time, and thoroughly enjoyed it, even if my colouring isn't exactly comic-book style.

The first of the three books is out now in PDF format before it returns from the printers in old-fashioned paper form, with the other two to follow. Champions Villains Book One is to be found here: https://www.herogames.com/viewItem.htm;jsessionid=aZHb6piUDfmb?itemID=250189

The characters are Archdruid Airetach, Gyre and Tartarus, and of them all I'm most please with Gyre - doing a mirror-finished cloak was tricky.

Just a quick one

Huginn & Muninn

The preview of Huginn & Muninn, written by Ian Struckhoff and drawn by me is now almost complete, and will be included in Ian's Black Label Comics' Anthology #1, published in time for this year's New York Comic Con.

Also in the Anthology are works by artists far more talented than me, full details of which can be found here, at BLC's deviantArt page: http://blacklabelcomics.deviantart.com/

As a taste, here's a small snippet of the artwork:

Fantasy Hero

These are my latest pictures done for Hero Games, this time they're interior pics for their upcoming book Fantasy Hero. One of my aims in doing them was to keep the main characters' face hidden, so the players can transpose their own character into that situation.

They were fun to do, and it was great to be able to use colour for a change.

Fantasy Hero is published by Hero Games, and can be found here: http://www.herogames.com/

Hero Bestiary

Some more illustrations for a Hero Games book, this time it's the Hero Bestiary, a compendium of monsters.

These were a lot of fun to do - I got to tackle part of the Celtic monsters section.

Hero Games' site, with links to buy this book, is here: www.herogames.com/

Here are three of my illustrations for it:

Huginn & Muninn

This is something I've been working with writer Ian Struckhoff on for a while now.

By necessity, it's been slotted in around other work, so I've only been able to do a panel at a time really. I am, however, quite pleased with how this first page has come out. There is a little more, but nothing I'm really able to show.

Should anyone be in Boston this weekend at the Boston Comic Con, Ian has a table there, and will be showing work by much better artists than me, examples of which is here, at The Deathlings website.
