ImagineFX 78
I have again been fortunate to write in the QA columns of ImagineFX magazine. This month I provide a three-step answer on painting feet! Halfling feet in fact, it was quite an interesting question from a reader and one I was happy to answer. I also covered the subject of colour from greyscale using one of my existing works ‘dragon Lord’ as the main illustration. Fortunately I had archived the original greyscale version so it was a perfect example for the answer I gave to the readers.

As always these were fun to do and as ever the magazine is fun and informative to read. There are some great paintings and articles on art nouveau and in particular the works of Mucha that I’d highly recommend taking a look at. ImagineFX issue 78 is still available at the newsagents, so go buy today!

This was the second of the two cards I produced for Fantasy Flight Games Lord of the Rings living card games. It depicts a dry river bed in the heart of Mirkwood forest, a location more prominent in the Hobbit than the Lord of Rings. It’s part of the encounter set titled ‘Return to Mirkwood’ if there are any LOTR card gamers interested.

It’s quite something being able to illustrate scenes from Middle-Earth. I would happily paint from Tolkiens stories all day if I could! I have always loved the way Tolkien described the scenery of Middle-Earth It has become very vivid in my minds eye, which makes it quite easy to depict from my point of view.
