Hyperion Team

Here's a new piece I've been working on recently. It's for a new RPG game currently in development. There's no official name/site yet, but I'll keep you updated as the project grows. Here's a brief description of the image. I hope you like it. More updates soon :)

"The scout team is called "Hyperion Team", with teams sporting the personal name given to their Tyrannosaur, and they're part of the Ogre Cannon Corps, named after the Ogre 90mm Folding Cannon. The weapon earned its name as much for its fearsome performance, as for its reputation for being difficult for field engineers to move around and work on. The weapon itself was developed directly in response to a need for a large and powerful theropod portable sniper cannon which allowed the animal to maintain mobility and balance, as an offensive response to pirate incursions along coastal outposts. Hyperion and her crew were personally part of the original beach sweeping operations to stop pirate landing craft from being able to retreat off shore, and they wear their armor with all its battle scars proudly."

They Came from Hell


Hi Everyone. I've been busy with lots of freelance work so I've not had much time for personal work recently. I thought I'd start a mini series of monsters. I'm not used to painting creatures, so it'll be good practice. I hope you like it.

Cheers.

Kiril Solider sculpt, paint and render

Hi guys.

I'm trying to get back into ZBrush to help me with all aspects of my work. Lighting, poses and quick creature concepts mainly. Here's something I've been working on after getting the latest ZBrush update and Keyshot. Keyshot is amazing. So quick and easy to use, and the results are great. I sculpted this bust in ZBrush, then poly painted it. I then rendered off multiple passes in Keyshot and compositing them in Photoshop. I watched one of Dominic Qwek's tutorials, and it was so helpful, I'd definitely recommend it. You can find a link to it here:

I hope you like. I'll definitely be doing more images like this. 

Cheers.

Pirate Captain Vader

This was done for the Brainstorm Facebook group. I had to re-design Darth Vader, so I decided to do a pirate captain. I took influences from Chinese armour.

Obsidian Worlds RPG Character Work

Happy new year! I'm now a full-time freelancer, so I thought I'd post some character work I did for an RPG project called Obsidian World to start things off. I was tasked with designing and illustrating the 12 classes of the world. It was very enjoyable, and I learnt a lot about painting and designing characters from it. So much so, that I've changed the way I create characters now. 

Here's a link to the RPG's website: www.obsidianworld.com

Thanks for looking. I'll try and keep the blog a bit more up to date, and with lots of new work.

Cheers.
Tom.

My first published artwork

I recently painted a piece for a book called The Fantasy Illustration Library - Lands and Legends. I had a choice of a lot of different subjects, so I chose The Grim Reaper. Here's the result:



Here are a few shots of the book itself:



The book has limited copies, so if you want one, you can go here:
