|Oil on Canvas 24" x 16"|
This involved a lot of glazing using liquin as the glazing medium in order to paint the beams of light over rock and trees. Mostly done for fun and the challenge.

|Oil on Canvas 20" x 16"|
This was an exercise in transposing a new colour palette onto an existing colour palette while trying to maintain the relationship between tonal levels. I've added a story into the composition by adding a sand snake in the path of the horse and a mountain village in the background which also help balance the extended vertical ratio of the canvas.

Painting of Camels approaching the pyramids and sphinx that closely based on a photo by Jovelino http://1x.com/photo/43091/ I just added the Sphinx and Pyramid to the composition and adjusted the colour palette.
I took this on as a study in levels and subtle hues. Balancing the hue shifts of the sands while retaining their levels proved quite tricky because of the incredibly small differences in the colour steps. I found that the darker levels where much more forgiving but the bright sand areas in the centre around the sphinx and pyramid required a lot of controlling the mixing. Any kind of minute colour pollution ruined the colour mix so keeping your brushes clean and the turps clean was essential. Forces you to develop good painting practices :)

|Digital art - 10'' x 13''|
It took me longer than I first anticipated, in reality it ended up taking me the guts of a year to complete. The above image is from the photoshop file while the gift itself was printed and transferred onto good quality art paper before it was float mounted and framed. The dimensions of the print match that of the pages from the book of Kells.

Here are some personal concepts for cleats where I also designed fictional brand logos to make mock ad campaigns. These are only some of the logo designs, I'll post the other logo designs later once I get around to putting them into a style guide.
This is strictly personal work and not a reflection of the direction Naturalmotion Games is taking.
