Vanquish Cards

I am not exactly sure why, but after doing the group picture for Team Vanquish I felt a compulsion to make individual cards for the heroes. These characters went through alot in our FATE Core suoers…

With the cool new licensing model, top shelf graphics and editor tools and a vast community the latest Unreal Engine (UE4) from Epic Games is something I have been keen to take a look at. With a…


Uluru

The family headed out to the red heart of Australia to take in the sights of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and that expansive night sky. When we first arrived at the resort it was a hot one, 46 degrees and it…

This little post was inspired by the John Cleese talk below that covers (in his usually comical way) thinking around how to set things up to allow creativity to happen. He talks about two basic…


Drawvids

I have been enjoying creating the WIP or process videos for my stuff, just letting Chronolapse do its thing and then packaging up at the end. Using traditional media we need to film things and there…

Going back in time a little for the next cover for our FATE Core supers game's fictional comic - featuring the first appearance of Ray-X. This was all done in Photoshop on the Surface Pro 3 and I did…

Rounding off the individual covers for the whole team we have Odette. She is the new member of team Vanquish in our FATE Core supers game. She is an NPC and supposed 'daughter' of super-villain Dr…


Darker Steve and some Worlds

LOL Vids and Worlds
