Kratos God of War

Grumpy Kratos in the morning 😡
I only played a bit of God of War (1) years ago. I thought his Blades of Chaos and attack animations were cool.

Battle Chasers Red Monkia

Red Monkia – Pistol wielding charming outlaw from Joe Madureira’s Battle Chasers.

Joe Madureira’s art is a major reason why I started reading the X-Men comic books as a kid. His style has so much movement and when he drew characters they seemed to be more solid and more expressive. They reminded me more of animation, which I loved, then any other comic art I had seen at the time.

I’m not much for video games but I’m tempted to try Battle Chasers: Nightwar firstly because it looks amazing and secondly to final see his comic book characters move.

Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game – Counters & Tokens

I am very proud of these counter designs for the Twisted Game, especially the Art Nouveau style elemental tokens and the fire blast! The top down terrain tokens where something completely unlike anything else I have had to illustrate and were a really fun challenge.

A few of the counters are blanks for numbers, character states, etc… to be added once the rules had been finalised. I have seen the final counters printed and die-cut with the completed game and I think they turned out pretty cool.


Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game Rulebook Illustrations – Ornaments

I really enjoyed getting to design some steampunk art nouveau style ornaments for the Twisted Game Rule book. I took inspiration from the games very impressive tabletop terrain designs mixed with real life bits and pieces. The idea was not only to decorate the pages of the rulebook but to give some more depth to the world of Twisted.

To design these I collected references and made composite layouts digitally. From them I would make sketches before doing the final illustrations traditionally in ink.


Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game Rulebook Illustrations – “Loyal”

This is the last “Character” illustration I did for the Twisted rulebook. The ability was “Loyal” describing how and when a loyal character can assist  in combat.

“he would brook no assault on his master…”

My idea was that this old hunter would rely on his clockwork falcon to scout and retrieve for him. Having only one hand his crossbow arm has many chambers of darts eliminating the need to frequently reload.

Next I will share my drawings for page ornaments that also were included in the rulebook. Like all of these characters, the drawings for them were done traditionally.

 


Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game Rulebook Illustrations – “Dual Fire”

One of the ink drawings I did for Demented Games – “Dual Fire” from the Twised:A Steampunk Skirmish Game Rulebook.

“Some combatants carry more than one pistol or have a weapon capable of firing rapidly. This can ensure quite substantial damage is done quickly but the recoil can be difficult to manage.”

I really enjoyed getting to illustrate these traits and designing characters to represent the ideas. Not fast on his feet but he is fast on the draw, he is the gunslinger of the London underground.


Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game Rulebook Illustrations – “Razor Sharp”

As well as designing the game title logo I did a number of small ink drawings for the “Twisted: A Steampunk Skirmish Game” rulebook.

Set in streets and sewers of an alternative Victorian London there is  a mix of Art Nouveau beauty, danger, magic and mystery. This character was inspired by the attribute “Razor Sharp”, she is a spider-like multi-armed knifethrower.

Some blades are wickedly sharp and will slice through flesh with ease.”

Jack of Hearts – The Gamblers

JackHearts_08

Jannkin Hearts – Baron Heart’s younger brother and considered possibly even more dangerous then the King. Fanatically devoted to Law, he hopes to rid himself of all emotion and find Pure Truth by practising the ancient rituals of Order.

The Jack of Hearts completes the House of Hearts in my series called The Gamblers –   characters and stories from which I’m building my own deck of playing cards.

I’m looking into starting a Patreon to help fund finishing off the remaining designs and go towards get the completed deck printed. I would like to share the preliminary sketches, more of background story and offer a limited number of commissions.
