Lost Cult

A lost 3D model design I did towards Norilsk Incident. This was far too "anime" in terms of style and design language, though it does reflect the base design concept I finally came up with (those files are also currently lost).

Unfinished SciFi Scene

Started this some time ago - there's a little back story as to what is going on in the image, but as it's unfinished I'll leave it out and see what you think is going on!

Anomalous Fissure

About an hour.
Larger version on my DeviantArt account.


After the Snows...

"...and then after the silence of winter and the fierce cold of the snow came the thaw. Fog banks twisted our vision and created menace at all angles. The river burst its banks and a rushing torrent smashed it's way through the streets piling rubble in new forms for us to navigate and unearthing hidden wonders we would otherwise have walked right over..."

Quick piece with accompanying blurb.

Special Operations

 From Norilsk Incident.

This is an early envisionment of the Spec Ops team. Whilst some of the aesthetic values have remained, they look less like Nazi stormtroopers right now - far more streamlined and ninja-like than before.

Still, I figured I should upload it as it's a decent piece!


We've now setup a blog for Norilsk Incident at http://norilskincident.blogspot.com please follow for updates and special features!

Science Team

From the Norilsk Incident.

Armed with standard issue firearms, but equipped with customised and next gen aeronautic and cosmonaut suits, they primarily survive in Norilsk through their understanding of the physics at work in the environment and the high level protection their suits provide against the chemical, radioactive and anomalous hazards.

Norilsk Incident - IndieGoGo Now Live!

Some months back I previewed some art I did towards a tabletop RPG project. That project has since evolved, mutated and become something more.


The initial release is four intertwined novellas telling the story of four factions searching for answers amongst the abandoned city of Norilsk. The novellas are accompanied by a tabletop RPG that allows you to live the world and the lore for yourself.



This video from creator Gabriel Zang will tell you more.



If you think you might be interested in the project, see more at http://fzideas.com where you can also read sample chapters, or if you simply want to donate to the production or know more about that end of things, see the IndieGoGo campaign HERE.



Aside from this, FZIdeas are the people behind;

Monolith's Whisper

Snowy Landscapes

You would have thought with the snow the UK has seen over the last month I'd have had plenty chance to get some reference pictures / sketches done for a piece I'm producing for Our Fair City (http://ourfaircity.com/), sadly York hasnt seen much snow and the few days we did have with it I was stuck in with a bad back.

Anyway, I figured I should do some prep, and heres a couple of them.

Intervention - Preview

Here's a snipped down preview of the art for the forthcoming EP; "Intervention" by Pantheon.
We've been working hard on this since last year and it's been a refreshingly different experience in producing album art.
Their website will be going fully live soon (http://pantheonofficial.com/), and I'll be dropping a more complete preview of the art and some bits on how it came about around the same time.

Everything in 3D?

I've recently begun working with the wonderful free program Sculptris by the makers of ZBrush.

It's VERY easy and intuitive to use.

You can pick it up HERE.
