Star Warsy Goodness

Yay, it's May the Fourth again and I am really loving being a Star Wars fan/nerd right now. It is certainly a rich time for the franchise across a whole range of media - so why don’t we take stock:…


Dragonsnail

I am talking with my sister and nephew about their book idea - so I did this quirky little pic of a Dragonsnail as sort of concept art idea of a character that might slot into the text part - maybe…


X-Wing Space Station Modelling

With all the extra space ships etc landing in my X-Wing collection and how great the asteroids look, I thought that modelling up a custom space station would be a cool next step. The idea was a…


Character Design Challenge and Baldi

One of the aspects of drawing that I love is creating or designing a character and bringing it to life on the 'page'. I wanted to call attention to the Character Design Challenge which draws a huge…


Tahm Kench Pool Party Concept

I had a desire to draw up a skin concept for League of Legends today. Not having any particular place to start I thought about the skin sets and decided on something for the Pool Party suite - esp as…


Viking Axe, Spear and More

I must have done this little concept pic for a Vikings children's story after I posted the others, so here is the little guy with Axe and Spear in hand ready to deal with whatever comes even if his…


Viking Concepts

Here are some fun concept sketches/drawings for a Viking story. I hope to be doing some illustrations like these for a children's story being written by some special people to be revealed soon…


Joe Smithereens and the Suit

I really like the character, party and world creation parts of games using systems like FATE. With our Fallen London inspired game starting we are in the throws of forging characters that will crew…


Battlechasers Contest

I loved the Battlechasers comic back in the day and now that the game is live on Kickstarter it is cool to see the new enthusiasm for it all over the place. One of the things running right now is a…


Site Design Sketches

We are having fun with our MDM Lost Childrens Place design project. We are in the design exploration phase as we work through concepts for the various zones in both broad sweeping ideas as well as…

This is a quick post with some pics showing some of the pieces I contributed to the Deskosaur project which was for a desk organiser system which required designing, modelling and then building to…


Design and Complete a Game

With my final course in the MDM kicking off tomorrow night I will need to work pretty hard on a specific project. There are so so many things that would be great fun to do while being hard and I…


High School Drama Zombie Golems

While brainstorming mechanics for the Golems game we were talking through the notion that the protagonists were busy with other aspects of their lives while also trying to assemble golems. We…


Nurturing Golems and Games

While doodling away with another Golem which just happened to be a rather heart-shaped fellow, I was thinking about games and conflict and caring. Anyone who has played board games will know that…


Doom Golems

As I think a little more about how a cooperative game of quirky golems going out to defend the 'base' for the players I was thinking about doooom. We played a nice family game or Red November last…


Go Golems

A little more concept sketching and thinking about the idea from yesterdays post last night. The idea of the dance studio feels a touch forced and maybe can just be a layer that is added later on…


Dance Golems Idea

In thinking about concepts that might end up forming the basis for my MDM course starting in a few weeks I had this little idea over the weekend. Dance Golems would revolve around a dance studio with…


Battle Maiden Monsters

I had an idea the other day that took the idea of giant loch-ness-like sea monsters could team up with a band of battle maidens of some sort to bring a different take to my game ideas. The alliance…


Nasus Q Scarf

Here is an idea for a League of Legends themed scarf (it is coming up on winter here in our lovely southern hemisphere). When we were talking about scarves the other day I thought a LoL-themed one…


The Stonewood Concept

Ok, following yesterdays lightning sketch and the inspiration, I really needed a better sketch that brought together some of these aspects so I could load it up on the campaign site for us. So I…
