So yeah... Currently busting my balls trying to get an image done for the Tomb Raider contest which will be completed very soon :)

This is done as part of 8bit Ego also so there will be a time lapse video to go with the illustration for those interested :)

If you haven't entered/seen the competition, check it out here :D... its a good practice as I have never entered a competition before haha.  Definitely having fun rendering the hell out of this one :P.

Just a little update to say thank you! I have recently got a fair amount of watchers (for me anyways hehe) and have been sloppy in thanking you for it individually! So just a quick thanks and shout out to all of you and anyone who stumbles on to my page. :)

Hope you are all well!!!

Hello everyone!!

I will be starting a 2nd set of villains soon.

The project was started to get myself 'on the map' and pay tribute to characters I have loved throughout gaming history. However due to a barrage of emails and requests I have decided to do another set of characters.   

I have a couple of definite's in mind as to who will be in for sure. But if anyone has any suggestions then please, do bring them forward :)

Bare in mind the project is about nostalgic retro gaming villains  from the late 80's/early 90's era :).

Hope all are well, ta ta for now.

:D

Wow, I did NOT expect that final set image to get the views its been getting :O. After getting featured on numerous gaming blogs, art blogs and reddit the views and messages just came flooding in :O

Thanks again everyone :) Its such an amazing feeling.

For those of you asking for prints (you know who you are), the villain collection is part of a gallery showcase that will be announced in the near future as part of a gaming media company I'm part of 8bit Ego. Please join the Facebook page for more information :)

For other images in my gallery if you still wish to get a print, email me or send me a note and I will figure something out for the 'one-offs' :)

Again, I can't give enough credit to the big boys in the game like Dave Rapoza, Dan Luvisi, Rigney etc etc. They are massive inspirations to get better and I wouldn't be trying as hard without a benchmark THAT high haha.

Anyone who wishes to improve should attend the Crimson Dagger livestreams by Dan Warren & Dave Rapoza because its an excellent community - all willing to help eachother. Other than that, just practice, practice :P. Always room for improvement :D
