Works that I find inspirational! If you want to see something that will spark your imagination check out all these great artists!



Darkness is your ally by NiceTie
Darkness is your ally
This is a quick illustration of the shrike monster from Hyperion the series
I have had to accept that my work so far has been quite hit and miss, mostly falling quite flat and now I am trying to retrain myself in order enjoy illustration more but also create stronger more compelling images. This is one of my scribbles looking at lighting and values that i thought had some impact in a simple way
Shield by NiceTie
I am constantly training to improve my illustrative skills. This is second in a series of this particular character. I simply wanted to create something that looked tough and action packed similar to the original

From Melbourne,
I have always enjoyed drawing and photography, I like to create characters and scenes about things I have seen or read about.
I like the science fiction/fantasy genre and base most of my works in that area. I get a lot of inspiration from video games, films, deviantart and when I travel to different countries.
Almost everything on DeviantArt is personal work, I would love to take my illustration to the professional level and that is what I plan to do over the next few years

Thanks for showing interest in my spontaneous art,
Happy to take on any work just send me a private message

Hi mate,

Thanks for the request, I will definitely check it out. As for the painting, I found a photo on the internet and used it as a study so I cant really claim its my work, I merely tried to reproduce it because shiny/polished metal is something I find very hard to convey effectively.

I would like to do more but I want to do my own original work not studies
