Commissions I have created for Thomas in the last few months.
Several Character illustrations, plus a few book illustrations from his novels.
All characters belong to Thomas Francis Barret MacNamara IV.
Today’s post will be short, but I am hoping to finally have two monster posts soon; one a review, and the other a 3D blog post. 😀
For now, here are three covers I was commissioned to create for C. Wintertide’s novel series “Neverfall“.
Luke Stephens never thought he’d get the chance to experience the immersive RPG known as Neverfall Online. But when he is tasked with entering the game and rescuing the players trapped within, Luke knows that this is what he was made for: to become a leader. A hero.
You can pre-order the first book here: https://www.cwintertide.com/
It has been three months now that I’ve posted here, and that makes me truly sad, for I love posting on this blog, but life got real busy, real fast.
End of Uni, graduation, family, moving houses and cities, and most especially a new job, whilst all along doing commissions in every spare moment. Thus, I was unable to write as much as I planned to, or continue with my reviews of awesome TF figures, favourite TV shows and all the other things I wanted to write about.
However, things are slowly settling down, and I am hoping I will find the time to return to writing proper blog posts once more.
For now, here are most of the artworks I have created over the past months.
There is more, but the rest will come later. 😉
This is the fully finished version of my Games Practical Project for my final year at Teesside University.
As a whole, this was an exceptionally fun project to work on, that has challenged me from all angles. I would like to thank my Supervisor again for having given me this idea in the first place, but especially for having supported me throughout the whole process.
Hasegawa Fusa is the daughter of a Samurai during the Edo period, who was ordered to commit seppuku by his Daimyo for having fathered a child with a Dutch woman. Her mother assassinated shortly after, Hasegawa was then raised in secret by her grandfather, Hasegawa Hiromune, who was a well-respected Samurai himself, although suspected to have dabbled in the dark arts of spirit summoning.
Hasegawa learns all she can from her grandfather of the art of war, but especially the art of summoning and raising the dead. Deprived of a normal life, she grows up full of hatred and with an unquenchable thirst for vengeance for the death of her mother and father.
Raising a small army of undead, she obliterates the Daimyo’s men with ease, thus taking her revenge upon the Daimyo who ordered her father’s death. Having gotten a taste of power, she is consumed by it and, against the advice of her grandfather, she raises greater and greater number of undead. In her embittered state, she loses sight of her humanity, being completely consumed by rage and hatred for the social systems that killed her parents and ruined her life.
Heading for Edo with the full intent of murdering the Shogun and becoming one herself, she lays waste to the country with her army of undead. However, the magic slowly starts to consume her, but despite the warning signs, she continues on her mad quest for revenge and change.
