Fairytale Games – Cinderella Card Art

Here’s a new batch of card art I did for the Fairytale Games:The Battle Royal board game.  These are attacking cards for the Cinderella character who’s back story is that after her fiance’s murder she become a fierce warrior known as ‘The Slayer’.  I’m happy with the results for the most part but I’m thinking about fixing up the colouring and rendering a bit on the blue card.  What’s cool about this project is that not only do I get to do some awesome card art, this particular character is being turned into a miniature playing piece for the game which is something I never thought I’d see.

Welcome to fanartexhibit.com!

Yep, after 4 years the domain name was finally purchased.  Smash the champaign against the hull, the site is now rechristened fanartexhibit.com from here on in.  The original domain name still works, but you can now drop that ugly ‘wordpress’ part (although to be fair they did give me free hosting, so they’re not that bad).

Welcome to fanartexhibit.com everyone!

Fairytale Games – The Battle Royale Card Art

This loosely falls under the category of fan art so I thought I’d post it here as well as on my other websites.  A few weeks back I was lucky enough to be asked to do some artwork for a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign for an upcoming card game. In all I’ll be doing over 100 pieces of artwork for this game which is a sort of cross between Hunger Games and traditional fairytale stories.  Personally I’ve always wanted to do some card game art and am really grateful for the opportunity to work on this game along with so many other great artists who’s art is amazing.    The first three character cards of The Little Mermaid, Cinderella and Belle are essentially alternate takes on the Disney fighter series I did a few years back, but less influenced on the Disney characters as before, these girls are more homages to those characters but have their own unique back story.  For more info as well as other great pieces of game artwork check out the official website for the game.  From what I understand the game should be out sometime in 2014.

Batman/Superman Teaser

Well we’ve finally got a film with Batman and Superman coming up soon, so I thought I’d whip up a teaser poster.  I’m quite happy with how the logo turned out. Wanted to meld the current Man of Steel logo with a Batman logo incorporating some rocky textures into the Batman side of the combo in reference to the Batcave.   The flaming debris is in reference to the aftermath of Man of Steel, and the tagline is in reference to people wanting justice for the thousands Superman inadvertently killed in that film as well as alluding to a future Justice League movie. About 4 hours work in total.

Tomb Raider Teaser Poster

Something a bit different that I’ve been wanting to do for a while.  A new Tomb Raider movie is being rebooted so I thought I’d take a stab at mocking up a teaser poster for the forthcoming flick (whenever that may be).  Actress I chose for the role is Kaya Scodelario, who I think has the right look, right age and importantly is the right nationality to play Lara Croft.  About 6 hours work in total.  Credit to Tigers Girl on Deviant Art for the body stock image.   :)

Commission – The Flash concept

Well after 5 years of running this site The Flash has finally made his way to my gallery of heroes, albeit in the form of a commission piece.  Person got in contact with me asking me to bring to life their own concept of the Scarlett Speedster and I was more than happy to oblige his request especially since I’ve always had trouble coming up with a Flash concept myself.  He sent me a sketch and I did my best to translate that into 3 dimensions, Ryan Gosling was his choice of Flash which is casting I would agree with.  Customer was very happy with the end result which is always important. :)
