This one here was done more for an armor concept then anything. I’ve always been a big fan of the Avatar Raiment armor set for Priests on WoW (Most particularly the Winged Spaulders) so I wanted to take that idea and remake it into my own styling.

It was an interesting challenge to design a wing that was stylized. One which did not look like a real wing yet had all the characteristics of one while trying not to create something that looked like a demon or dragon wing in the process. I am most pleased with the end result and believe I’ve accomplished that goal.

Hope you all enjoy.

So. Here are the members of the Notion Club, or at least the ones I've deemed important enough to illustrate. They are, from left to right:

FRONT ROW: Nicholas Guildford; Arundel Lowdhawm; Michael George Ramer; Wilfred Trewin Jeremy

BACK ROW: Alexander Cameron; Sir Alfred Raymond, Rufus Rupert Dolbear, Douglas MacPhee

I'm very proud of this picture, it took me a long time and it was a lot of fun. It was interesting thinking of different poses, expressions, and simple face types for all of them. Someone commented that all my faces look the same, so I tried to counter that here. Not sure if it worked, but it was fun to try.

WARNING! LONG DESCRIPTION COMING UP! Tolkien provides you with loads of information, but I doubt you're interested in all of it (i.e. Ramer belongs to Jesus College and is a professor of Fiino-Ugric Philiology), so I'll just tell you what I consider important about the lot of them.

Nicholas Guildford (Front, far left) is the Notion Club's secretary. He takes down all the notes, and the papers are written from his POV. He's in the earlier "Camera" pic here: [link]

Arundel Lowdhawm: (Front, middle left) You've seen this guy already. To the club, he's their resident comedian, rabble-rouser and such. He is also a philologist, interested in Anglo-Saxon and Icelandic, like Tolkien was. (He looks like Oscar Wilde, but that is simply my own device.)

Michael Ramer: (Front, Middle Right) He is the one who discovers and describes the notion of traveling in dreams. He's an image of Tolkien in the story (indeed, he has many of the same dreams), so I doubt Tolkien would have drawn him like this. Guy looks like a Nazi. But bald guys with sunglasses look cool.

Wilfred Jeremy: (Front, Far Right) This guy seems to be important, but the notes end just where he is starting to get visions. He seems to be a kind of seer, and sees many of the things Lowdhawm does.

Alexander Cameron: (Back, Far left) This guy barely shows up in the papers, and when he does he's a little annoying. I included him because I think Tolkien meant for him to be a bad guy. I drew him something like Charles Williams (who Tolkien was not very fond of), but it doesn't really show.

Sir Raymond: (Back, middle left) This man is actually NOT in the papers. I transplanted him into my version from George MacDonald's "Back of the North Wind", simply because that story had a similar dream-travel premise. He's intended to resemble George MacDonald.

Rufus Dolbear: (Back, Middle Right) Known as "Ruthless Rufus" This guy is always half-asleep, but every so often he says something that shows he knows a lot about what's going on in the club. I think Tolkien meant him to be a Lewis, so I drew him like one.

MacPhee: (Back, far right) If you guys don't know who this is, you should. He's not in Notion Club Papers either, he comes from "That Hideous Strength", where he plays the resident agnostic. I think Tolkien's Notion Club is linked with that story, so I stuck him in.

Un nuevo boceto de The League of Extraordinary Gentlemice (basada en The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). Queria monstrarlos en una situación más tensa, y por cierto, Mina esta bellisíma.

Este es mi dibujo número 50.

Yes. I know I'm weird.

I was watching fantasia a few months ago with Lenny and Van, and I decided that I wanted to work on centaurs...
Centaurs with real, working anatomy.

So I sat down and did a quick sketch to get an idea of the proportions and then did the skeletal layout.

Things to note:
If you look at Greek/Roman sculpture and art, centaurs are not as huge as mots people make them, and I tried to stay true to that, instead of more current, popular, media. thus, A centaur stands at about 12 hands at the whithers, about the same as a Welsh Pony.

The human torso segment of the centaur masses about the same as a horses head and neck, perhaps a bit heavier, but not that much

To counter the weight of the upper body and provide tighter manuvering and the like, the hind quarters are based on a quarter horse, raised and heavily muscled.

No, you're not seeing things, there are THREE toes on the ground, not one. I wanted some slight differance with a true horse and I wanted them to not have the exposed frog that a horse does.

The head is not in proportion for 'just slap a human torso on a horses body'. If you notice the headis probably nearly twice the size a humans would be. They've got a bigger body, so they also have a bigger brain to body ratio.

The jaw and nose are also differant tehn a humans, giving them a 'roman' nose like apperance and a HEAVY jaw.

There's quite a bit of space inbetween teh vertibre of the 'human' lower back area, that is to allow maximum flexibility. A centaur can lean down and touch his/her front toes; or twist around and reach tehir haunches/tail.

The ribs continue up from the horse ribs. Tehre are NOT two seperate rib cages, instead three of the ribs in front of the front hooves create a basic ';pelvis', then are almost completly lost in the waist section to allow manuvering sace, tehn form a rib cage like that of a human for the foremost 'sixth limbs/arms' to attach to.

...Oh and the arms are slightly longer in proportion then a humans as well.

Un boceto antiguo (mas o menos del 2003), pero que aún me hace mucha gracia, esta basado en el genial comic de Alan Moore y Kevin O'Neill, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Me parecía divertido crear a sus análogos ratones al estilo the Great Mouse Detective

I'm not sure I should use Mature Warning here.... :/ 

Character design for my future webcomic, New Wonderlanders, based on Alice in Wonderland, infected with some Batman and very little Sin City, hopefully with some steampunkish design :)

They are the Oysters. They are prostitutes and strippers (except the child, of course, she is a daughter of one of them) in a bar run by the Carpenter. They are poor creatures, being used and abused, with no money.

They came from a poem from the original Alice story, where the Carpenter and the Walrus cheated on the poor oysters, lead them away there home and than eat them. it was really cruel.

I no longer post to this account and while I really appreciate the watches, please direct them towards my new account: :iconfighter-jet:. Thanks!

General feeling of late. It'll pass, it always does.

Hoping that in by coloring a [lol]messy sketch that I'll get over this art block. If not, I'll have to try to push through it.

I'm feeling lazy, I'm sorry. Work starts tomorrow anyhow.

I am /so/ hiding my mistakes behind copious amounts of sand in the foreground.

Line brush: :iconebonred:
Abstract brush: :iconsabu-kudo:

[Edit]As per :iconcapt-topknot:'s prodding, I attempted to add more differentiation between Link's hair and one of her bandanna tails.
