Springtime At Lothlorien Castle
The Eternal Elf King has met his match this Springtime, or has he?  The eternal ice age over the elven lands may continue under his rule, if the Spring Dragons, envisioned as huge Coat'l win their fight over the white and blue ice dragon.  Spring has a way of defeating Winter most years... but not all.  I decided to depict Winter as an elf because he would look young at any age, and so might be a natural depiction of the oldest night of all.  He is dual casting because he is just that awesome.
Android With A Banana
An idea I got that took many renders to achieve and the paint together.  In the future will androids prefer gold or chrome bananas?  Peeled or unpeeled?
The Android Decision
What happens when the choice of lover is an android and you need a new one because... well why not?  What happens when the robot is the one buying for the home, or for himself?  Will all androids get a say in this?  And if so will they make the same choice with the same programming?
Rendered, 3D edited, and painted, various figures and positions used, this one took awhile, and I split one piece into 3 for this project... and that spawned its own side projects.  I chose the base image based on the reflections that turned out so well.  The arm cuffs entered the image after several renders which showed a more physical and painful source of capture might illustrate the idea I was trying to get across better.
Death At Mirror
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?  It can't be life, it can't be love, I would snuff out every candelabra... if my true love would fall.
Alternate Bismuth
I tried creating my own mineral with its crystalline basis in a fractal shape, similar to bismuth (Bi) but different in several structural ways.
I completed a class in Acrylic Painting for Portraiture at the local art college lately (The Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre). It was an interesting foray into one of my favourite mediums. I am plunging back into finishing off a series of dark elves and other renders, and my epic pile of triple self exquisite corpses. Along with more comic-infused art. There is also that 3D graphic novel to finish off. And 3 epic VR scenes. But I am making room for other ECs. I always have time for collaborative projects. Meanwhile I am writing a book that is a group of adventures hopefully for publishing. This will be about my 14th completed book. I have several other writing projects to finish once I have this done. It is really a lot of fun writing for young adults, and much more interesting than my usual work. I hope my artistry and experience shows.
I am also looking at getting into a local tweaker box beat-music based group again. Provided they are still running, it would be a shame if they are not.
