Acoustic Skull Boy – Hexel

Acoustic Skull Boy - Hexel

A quick play around in Hexray Studio’s awesome Hexels.
It’s only been officially out for a day or so now, but I’m pretty much in love with it.
There’s even a free trial, so give it a whirl!

Train, Truck, Bus

Fancied working from reference for a change, and nurture a different style. Good practice for something I have in the pipeline. Quite happy with it!

And for those of you interested in the real deal – below is the original image. No idea what it is, or where it was taken, but I know that I like it!

I’m Sir Murderbrides!

So this guy has been sat inside my computer, loitering about, swearing, muttering, plotting. But now he’s out! Bellowing his rage! Look at him! … “Woah” someone shouted! Back up! Give this guy some room!

His nameth is Sir Murderbrides (thank you Simon for coming up with the name – by the way, buy Simon’s new game, it’s awesome!) and he’s a fiery fellow. Trained in 32 forms of armed combat and 1 form of unarmed combat (bar-brawl style) he’s a force to be reckoned with. Legend has it he once took an arrow to the knee, but the arrow came off worse.

I cajoled the dark knight to ride with me on my merry adventure in aid of Dudebox’s “Design a Fiend” competition.

Go check it out!

Flaming skulls… OF DOOM!

Thought I’d best delve back into a certain OLD OLD OLD game (*cough cough* Davey Jones) that went on the back-burner while I sorted my life out. Life still not sorted, so I’ll put that on the back-burner for a while and let Davey have my full attention. See below for the original straight outta Compton/my sketchbook.

Hope you like them!

All at Sea

Recently finished personal piece. My next illustration will no doubt feature a character with monstrous arms and a bemused grin.

Boats and Hoes!

“Dude?! What’s with the knife?!”

I won’t bore you with the details, but I decided to try the new Perspective Grid Tool in Illustrator.

Edit: Guess what computer I used to make THIS! Thanks Steve

The Tundra

Hi guys! How the hell are you? Wow! You look great… have you been working out?

Anyway, to the business as hand – I’ve been quite preoccupied recently looking after my new wife and our most awesome child. They’re both legends in their own right… but enough about them! I’ve also been out Freelancing with the best of them (you know… “them”) – turning heads with my cool, calm, collected self in Central London’s design agencies… but enough about them too!

In the past, I have got sooo frustrated about turning my sketches into finished illustrations (I think I’ve mentioned it a number of times on this blog). It’s something I point out to myself whenever I open my sketch book and proclaim… “WOAH! Dude! That character! He’s awesome! He’s a castle right?! With arms! Sick! And that guy! He’s got a huge brow! Bigger than his mouth! Nyam-nyam-nyam-nyam! … but wait… it’s just a grubby, smeared, coffee stained sketch. Where the hell is the finished piece?”

Well, I’ve been having a little play in Illustrator and Photoshop and BEHOLD I think I may of stumbled upon a style that I’m almost happy with (I say almost… I’m never 100% happy with my illustrations… ever – which is a good thing).

I’ve also posted the original sketch below to wet the internets insatiable appetite for unnecessary information.

Coming soon: I’ll be figuring out if this is a good style to tout to the masses, refining the process and posting up a tutorial for the process for all to see.

Please do check back soon as I’ll be putting up a second (already completed – but I’m a big tease) illustration up here.

 

Love ya,

Ewan x
