Tarzan
Tarzan - strong and wary. He is at one with the jungle.

An ink and watercolor piece I did earlier this year as a birthday present for my very dear and very talented artist friend. Find him on instagram - www.instagram.com/loopydavestu… and shower him with compliments and money😍

I wanted to capture the feel of old 3 color printed bookcovers using only yellow, green and black to build the image. I completely redrew the line work 4 times before I was happy with it.

Valkyrie

"She has come for me,
Moonlight is her face
Ravens, her cloak
Through the cold mist
On the now silent battlefield.
VALKYRIE"

I had this idea and sketched out a tiny scribbley thumbnail about a year ago. I started collecting reference images and refined the sketch. I would work on it when I got a chance but it wouldn't look right. So I would leave it. I would restart again with the thumbnail. More reference. Restarting it again. And again. And again.

And then something clicked and I restarted and finished the painting in about a week. What clicked? Her wings couldn't be majestically outspread, to be descending they would be pulled back and smaller. And the composition fell into place.

Indiana Jones -Raiders of the Lost Ark
Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of my favourite movies. It has everything that makes a great story. And the cinematography is masterful. 
Has Harrison Ford always been a cool grumpy old man?

Kratos God of War

Grumpy Kratos in the morning 😡
I only played a bit of God of War (1) years ago. I thought his Blades of Chaos and attack animations were cool.

I really liked your work(especialy psylocke) It would be really nice to see you doing some 3D work. Did you ever tried Zbrush?

I had wondered why I haven't been seeing your artwork in my feed - thought you must have stopped posting here or something... and then found I hadn't clicked follow. What a silly goose I am! Oversight now fixed!
