Something I started a while back, then decided to finish in the wee hours of the morning over the past few nights. I think I really just had a gnawing anxiety that my most recent paintings were looking repetitive, and I felt the need to do something slightly different.
Anyway...hurray for the the 20's and helmet-hair and wearing ridiculous, frilly things on your head.
ATTENTION! That image is freaking huge.... and it still is lacking details. >_<
For my sake... please please full view this, even if it's only just a sketch! ;_;
This is the result of about two weeks drawing at least a sketch every day. A sketch usually contained four till five critters, which have then finally all been puzzled together to this giant piece.
To explain... so many of my personal projects just died... picture series which I had in mind, my own homepage, comics and what not... I didn't want to let this one die as well and by the gods... I hope I will find the time, the will and endurance to colour this giant piece of creatures.
What you see here are a total of 41 critters, all designed for Ileyeah, the homeworld of my Bloodhounds. Some of those designs have been created up till 12 years ago, some have been born last week, some didn't change at all over the years and some can not be recognized.
Here comes now a list of names and dates and after I found a little rest, I promise to upload the single sketch pages to my scraps, so that you can have a better look at them.
Oh, btw. the numbers on the left is a scale in metres.
The creatures are mostly sorted by the area in which they appear, but some wouldn't fit into their group because of their size. I will add a list of names and locations to the scans I'm going to upload to scraps later.
Here only the names of the creatures, sorted by their habitat and their size (Bloodhounds excluded. those have only been added for you as a size reference):
The alternate title for this should be "never use a frayed brush tip pen on small pictures."
Another good one would be "I can't draw small African kids".....
Last assignment for advanced drawing is "How Fly is Your Ride?" Again, I have done this one in the past, and just like last time, its geared towards concepts for Ventus. The first one can be seen here: [link]
Because Ventus is based in a similar earth/au, or whatever you want to call it, all of the old cultures/first people are closely based off of the old cultures of our world. The ones shown here are two different tribes of the tri-continent, Aifric, a young scout from the first people of Emeri, and a warrior from the southern islands. These are based respectively off of the Kikuyu and Zulu tribes, a Lakota native, and the Polynesian/Maori culture.
I did as much research as I had time for, and I sincerely apologize if I got anything wrong, or if this is overall offensive to anyone. I pull inspiration from everywhere, and I really don't mean to offend...
Concept for one of personal projects, 'Aqua proteins'. A laboratory inside of a big exotic 'green house', where rare species of plants, flowers and sea weeds are processed to form highly nutritious food supplements.
According to Einstein's relativity, we know that time and space are one and the same. Yet we can't help but perceive them as separate. And we go to great lengths to measure and divide them down to the smallest of units.
Maybe it's because that way we can trick ourselves into not feeling small.

I had a quick go at drawing Thomas again from ~midnightfaerys fanfic of Mias and Elle. I love Thomas, hes so adorable and sweet and ya just wanna hug him! I think I've got the right idea about his appearence... Maybe not, I'll just have to read the fanfic again! Yay!! 8D
Back from a short hiatus due to some problems with my PC (all rectified and all's working fantastically) time to get to posting new stuffs.
Another collection of TKP concept thumbs, this time Omni-sense Network communications terminals. These were done while working on something TKP related we're cooking in the Vulnepro Easy Bake oven 'o' fun right now
Omni-sense is the closest thing the Theos setting has to the internet. In many ways it's similar, in far more ways it's not. Terminals, like these, are often just called Omni-links and can be accessed by the general populace to a certain level. Beyond that there are levels that Policers, I.P.I.O.s (Private Eyes), and their sendai/taedai can access, and even beyond that more layers of sensitive access.
Omni-sense is also a SOL-wide monitoring network with camera optical devices all over the place. Big brother on crack. To add to that creepiness the screens of many of these terminals have a roving "eye" that follows the user or passers by (special thanks to for adding another layer of creepy to the idea). Once the terminal is active the eye fades into a more transparent, unobtrusive mode, but is still very much there. The "eye" represents The Eye of SOL, an ideology that Indus is the center of the universe, much like the Earth is the center ideologies of the distant past.
These are all rough thumbs with some monochromatic color wash in CS3. I'm posting these as deviations to alert watchers that there is a LOT of these rough concepts in scraps. Please, by all means activate watch scraps, for this gallery, if you follow the Theos material
More sci-fi Noir. Had a crazy week with some of my work hitting Kotaku with half a million views so ive not had much time to paint- got this out of the way today though Fun times! Portfolio Site Facebook Art Page
Kyoto-Tokyo. Overpopulation, global warming and endless wars have plagued the planet for the past 50 years, We are now in an age of peace, but the atmosphere is tense. The population is embadded with cybernetics, SMART AI, robots, clones, nanotech and other advanced technologies. Police, Military and Corporate mechs control the streets. Cameras and drones monitor every street corner. This world is dense and complicated.
Hi Guys, A few months ago I have been invited to an art auction. Their idea is to promote digital art as fine art. I had an eye opening conversation with organizer about originality of a printed piece (like in photography), pasting photos (reminded me of Tadeusz Kantor art ) and bitcoins and other art stuff and I got really pumped by their concept. It is all about mindset of investors, if they accustom to the idea that art can be created digitally. Here you can read a little more about the project: polishdigitalart.com/pda_proje…
So I created this personal piece with a touch of experimentation and symbolism. The event was very successful and I am looking forward to the second edition.
