My Bio

I work internationally as a freelance artist. My work is used in books, magazines, tv, film and videogames.

Fine art prints of much of my work: Keith Thompson Art Prints

I use black colerase pencil on 110lb paper. Halfway through the process the art is scanned and glazed using soft light layers in Photoshop. The whole process is detailed in this Gnomon workshop dvd if you're interested: Character Design Techniques DVD

Congrats to ImagineFx for reaching their 100th issue.  The Favorite Artists is covered in the Special Edition Supplement of the 100th issue: And here is that being I promised to complete for everyone as thanks:

Due to new projects this is the last week of 2013 that I'll be able to make art prints for people to order.  In case you might be interested in ordering any prints (including any for Christmas gifts) you can see more about them here: and order any of them on their actual pages in the gallery section of the site.

I've seen the final cut of the movie Pacific Rim, and it's awesome!  Guillermo Del Toro's love of the theatre experience is such a part of the fabric of the movie, it really deserves to be seen in a theatre setting: Pacific Rim IMDB There's a bunch of my art in the official art book too: Pacific Rim Art Book Also, ImagineFX has mentioned that there have been a lot of votes coming in for me in their favourite fantasy artist category. I'm very touched, and I wanted to make a piece of art (viewable here: Being presenting thanks ) as a big thanks to everyone who went out of their way to vote. If enough votes come in the next 8 days to manage a

Love the work you do, are you taking commissions these days?

Hi Keith. Still have an image of yours as my background, its been years. I bore of things quickly, but there is something there that speaks to me. Very impressive, i am not easily impressed. Best wishes.

Your imagination amazes me. For the third day I have been exploring the worlds you created, looking into every corner, finding myself in unimaginable places, but still every time I am amazed at the vastness and richness of these worlds.

Are you okay? Are you still alive?

You're work reminds me of Dishonored. I love it!

I pray for happiness and love to come to  you 
Since you're an amazing artist, which artwork are as strangely beautiful that they are eerily inspirational,I'm worried a bit about your situation as an artist. I do not mean to pry, dear artist, but should we expect more delightful works from you or did you put the pencil and Photoshop away definitely ?

Truly, your sincerest.
