ImagineFX issue 57

A little late I know, but I was fortunate again last month to answer a couple of readers questions for Imaginefx. Theres always something different about doing these Q & A’s so it always fun to do.

The hooded figure was based on my son Jack who posed for me so I could get the lighting right. The viking ships were pretty tricky for a quick painting, but I managed to pull if off with a few decent references I found on the web.

Oh! and whilst I remember. Congratulatations to all those people who entered the ImagineFX Fantasy Football competition. Personally, it was great being a judge and looking over the entries. The last time I did any judging was as a moderator for the Art Wanted creative minds book a few years ago.

Fantasy Football

Football is definately big on my agenda lately! Not only did I get to see Millwall win their first Wembley final (their first ever playoff triumph) but I also got to paint something along a football theme for Imagine FX magazine recently.

They’re having a competition for their readers to paint a fantasy football team player, ‘Fantasy’ being the key word! Now that the competition is official I can post the image I painted to help promote the competition.
It’s meant to be Wayne Rooney depicted as a troll Orc like character, hopefully its still a reasonalble likeness despite the fantasy embelishments.

I also get to be on the judging panel for the competition (which is pretty cool) so I’m looking forward to seeing all the entries that come in.  Should be a lotta fun!

Still on the football theme the world cup kicks of this friday with England playing their first match on saturday. I’ve got my fingers crossed for a great start to the tournament!
