Warhammer 40k - Harelquin Solitare by namesjames
Warhammer 40k - Harelquin Solitare
This is the first illustration I did for Games Workshop around August 2014. Great fun to work on, I should hopefully be able to post more soon.

The designs for this and all of the Games Workshop work that I have done are based on pictures of miniatures that I get given by the Art Director. Beyond changing the proportions a bit, I don't have any design input on the characters themselves, I just try to come up with the best image I can to fit the description I get.
Venom by namesjames
I started this late last year and made time to finish it yesterday. I've always loved Venom's design and it was great fun to do.

It is 15" x 20", Oils on Illustration Board.

( I'll get a proper scan of it once it's dry)

I've had a few notes about Commissions/Requests, I just wanted to say that I'm not taking any on at the moment. I have regular work from publishers that is taking up all of my time at the moment.

The other thing I've been asked a few times about is a Tutorial. The reason I haven't done a tutorial of any kind is that I don't think it would be very good:) My process is still rather chaotic which I suppose may be interesting, but not terribly informative. When I feel I have something really solid to offer in terms of a tutorial I will put one together.

One of the works I have in progress is a 20" x 40" oil painting. It's the first traditional commission I've taken on in many years but it's been great fun to work on so far. It's a straight forward Retro Space Girl image so it's been a good one to start the ball rolling with and I'm loving it. I'm hoping to do more oil painted commissions and personal works in the coming years. I have 2 or 3 days work left in it but I'll post a shot of it when it's complete.
