Generica - Realm of Fairly Limited Imagination
A silly map of fantasy fiction tropes and cliches. Zoom in and pay attention to the trade routes!

The Vigil
Came across an old sketch and decided to work it up into something. A lot of fun going a bit overboard on the colours in this one. Might make some tweaks in the future.

The Tatters of the King
A quickish portrait inspired by Robert W. Chambers 'The King in Yellow'. I may do some further work on it in the future.
 

    Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
    Where flap the tatters of the King,
    Must die unheard in
                Dim Carcosa.

The Ritual Fighter
A monochrome piece I've been working at on and off for a few months, finally got around to finishing, or at least bringing it to a satisfactory stage. Not based on anything in particular, just something that emerged through sketching, starting with the mask, and extrapolating out to the idea of these savagely arrayed fighters engaging in blind duels, guided only by the sound of the others bells, watched by a silent audience, spilling blood for some nameless god. (I've been reading a lot of classic sword and sorcery lately).

No problem, it's a lovely piece; I love how you photograph the dolls, that sort of fine line between realness and artificiality, they're really engaging, and of course the craft and arrangement.
