I kinda like how the reflection of the robot in the CRT screen turned out

Dinosaur Zombies and Robot Werewolves

Back in 2014 I made a cover for self-published author Patrick F Murphy for his novel for young adult readers, entitled Attack of the Dinosaur Zombies. Earlier this year, I was commissioned to create an illustration for the sequel to that novel Howl of the Robot Werewolves. You can not love books with those titles! Check them out at their […]

Three Structures

It appears that I have upgraded the blog from Pivot 1.4 to PivotX 2.3.11 after many months – no, years – of fretting if the CMS which has been vaporware for quite some time would die on us without warning. It was either get left behind by technology, or to upgrade. Upgrading runs the risk of causing irreparable damage. Especially […]

Troubleshooters Patch

Troubleshooters Unit Patch

Recently I completed a commission for a unit patch for a Rebel Alliance group known as the Troubleshooters for Seamus Conneely’s Star Wars RPG campaign. Unit patches are fun. I need to do more unit patches or nose art. There must a truckload of Star Wars RPG campaigns that require them for their group or for their ships.

My 10 Best Drawlloweens

I discovered an activity called Drawlloween that someone made up to draw things daily in October in conjunction with Halloween. There is a list of topics, which you can see at my Google Photo album. Naturally, instead of spooky stuff I turned it into an absolute nerdfest. Eyeball is of course the pilot slang for an Imperial TIE fighter, just […]

Captain Ithano

My second Star Wars The Force Awakens fan art is Captain Ithano a.k.a. the Crimson Corsair. He holds in his arm a guidebook for becoming a pirate or a privateer. (A letter of marque is required for the latter choice.) Here’s a close up of the book he’s carrying which I painted from scratch using a photo of the actual […]

Zuvio

Constable Zuvio

Constable Zuvio from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, my first ever fan art for the movie which is due in forty days. I am slacking. Not really, it’s a long story. First, it was sketched and painted with Krita, then finished up with GIMP. Zuvio looks like a Kyuzo does he not?

Star Trek Hybrids

So, I drew some cross-species hybridization as Star Trek aliens are wont to do. For example, Spock is a Human-Vulcan hybrid and K’Ehleyr is a Human-Klingon hybrid. A Tholian-Vulcan hybrid! I only remembered the pointy eyebrows after I finished drawing. A Horta-Cardassian hybrid. No space beneath the silicon-based body for a Gul Macet-style mutton chops. And think of the amount […]

Almost Time for Aidilfitri

Hari Raya Aidilfitri looms at the end of the week. Ramadhan is almost over. Last weekend, I was tasked with making a Aidilfitri card at work. As seen in the image above, I am in the card climbing a coconut tree. In fact, everyone in the department is in the card. Click here to view what everyone else is doing […]

Ruthermore’s First Cover: Redux

The cover of Ruthermore Heidigens and the Fifth Planet was the first in the series that I drew for Ebb and Folks back in 2011. There was a request for an enhancement of the cover. Originally painted in water colours, I employed GIMP to give it a digital upgrade by smoothing out roughness and applying digital paints where required. For […]
