Wednesday 2nd April 2014 - Long time no update

What a month March was! 

It has flown by, seemingly unnoticed in my studio. I've had a lot happen, some good, some not so good. 

I've been called back on the team for a pre-production TV series, for which I am providing environmental and character concept art - I wrote a small bit on my DeviantArt about it:
Roughly 12 months ago I was approached with the opportunity to work on a TV series, producing teaser illustrations to interest investors, get the cast motivated, and so on. 
Well now I'm back for more work! I'm producing more pipeline work, concept art, illustrations, possible storyboards, that kind of stuff. This is like, a huge project, and somehow it was also technically my first paid gig, so will always hold some form of sentiment for me. 
However, as with TV, Films, Games, etc, there's a huge all-encompassing net of non-disclosure, so I personally am not allowed to share any work for ages (years and years). But I like to get my work online, to show I'm actually being productive. 
The official Facebook page for the TV Series is here:
The CEOs/Producers can share my work as they see fit, so if you go ahead and like the page, my work often crops up in the form of teasers, marketing pieces, etc. Sharing it and getting the word out is always much appreciated too. 

So yep, that basically covers it - I'm busy painting vikings and longboats and mountains, all that good stuff. But I can't share any of it! Which means that for March there isn't much work to show. 

I've also been working on some traditional stuff, all commissioned - 

I've got an album cover currently sat on the drawing board waiting to be inked up, I just need the client to get in touch: 

Unlike with digital stuff it's not as easy to just delete a layer and begin again with traditional, so I need to be quite verbose with clients with this kind of stuff. 

Also working with the guys over at Strolen's Citadel on rebranding their website, with some new banners and logos and so forth: 

There is a lot more which I will either share later or just leave - Things like favicons, logos, forum icons, etc. But these were quite fun to do! Finding some really scratchy watercolour paper, and using old dip pens to try and recreate that medieval scribed kind of appearance, crossed with my own take on things of course.
