    Default Concept art from my new superhero comic 'Gods'

    Forcefield projector station within first layer of mountain fortress interior. Like this one a lot, but it's going to mean I have to step up my game with the design of the mountain fortress exterior...




    Concept sequential pages

    Very good. Is this a web comic? or printed book?

    Thanks, EP- glad you like it. I'm going to be approaching publishers who might interested in producing a printed comic with free digital version- along with an option of cheaper digital version only... watch this space!

    Extremely detailed and unique. Designs and layouts are superb; I will DEFINITELY watch this space.

    Thanks Neil. The designs are meant to evoke a 'used universe'- I kind of feel we don't get to see much of that lately, especially with so much CGI in movies these days- imagery that, it seems to me, a lot comics tend to imitate. Not that I exactly know what the hell I'm doing!


    Some more sketches, apologies for the lined paper- these were done as sidebars to script notes, prior to figuring they maybe turned out interesting enough for display.


    Cade's battleblade is enriched by sorcery, enabling it to be ‘sawmilled’ in the direction of incoming debris or enemy artillery, providing a defensive canopy of whizzing metal.





    Odds n' ends

    Nice concepts Michael. I know world-building can be a pain, can be alot of fun too.

    Thanks Ghost- you're not wrong. Coming up with stuff from the forks and spoons up is no picnic, but I reckon few things are as rewarding too.


    Medical droid 'Jeeg' whips across roiling battlefields either patching up the greviously wounded or putting them out of their misery, depending on the severity of their messed-upness. The Hypocratic oath doesn't get much of a look-in when half the dying are likely to Turn (into)...

    Final design and four prelim roughs for the 'Jackal' tank bikes that will feature in the second part of the Gods British comic book trilogy. These all-terrain attack vehicles feature two elongated, tilting treads that sprout climbing crampons, enabling their riders to storm even the sheer cliffs of the titan enemy mountain 'Ryzar'.

    Battlelord 'Straaken'.

    Remember when you saw the trailer for the Spielberg 'War of the Worlds' and caught a glimpse of the tripod pilot aliens, and thought they were gonna look frightening and cool?

    When I finally got round to doing a rendition of what I thought I saw, this was the result: still nothing like what I thought I saw.

    But I kind of like him anyway.

    "Hell's he looking at us like that for?"
    "It's not me he's looking at... sorry, Dyler- you're on your own!"

    "Hell's he looking at us like that?"
    "Ain't me he's looking at... sorry, Dyler- you're on your own!"

    Major Cade Cyger character concept (revised from the tan jacket number)

    "Wait!! You'll wake the dale guardian!"



    'Nargun'- an incorporeal demon from the planet Aldar's Dark Age. Interesting note about the lined note paper- most of these babies weren't really whipped up for public consumption or intended to be formal concept art, just side scrawls beside my script notes- but hopefully they're interesting enough for those who are big into pre-production stuff.
