It's been a hell of a long time since I posted an update, and I want to thank everyone who is still watching and those who have posted comments, I really appreciate it.
I want to use this space to mention my new art book 'Draw & Paint Warriors & Heroes' published by Impact-

Here's the blurb!
Ten warrior archetypes come under intense scrutiny in step-by-step guides that lead you from initial sketch to finished painting. Anatomical lessons demonstrate how to achieve convincing combat gestures and movement, while clever use of light and shadow will create impact and bring your warriors to life. Suitable for beginners and experienced artists.

All that blood sweat and tears for just £14.99 (already reduced to £8.74 on Amazon!!). Well….what are you waiting for, go and get a copy!!…

Your book taught me so much about seeing the human figure, breaking it down into simpler geometric shapes and rendering it accurately. Thank you so much! :)

I found your book at Michaels, and instantly loved it! I love drawing warriors and anything with swords, so it has been such a help. The tips were very helpful, and your art is awesome! I can't wait to see what you're working on next!

I found your book in a store while I was picking up some new pencils. Usually I have a tough time finding books with useful tips or that don't just repeat the basics. Your writing style is the perfect combination of conversational encouragement and enthusiastic intelligence. The tips and guides you provide are incredibly useful while being both brief and thorough, and your passion for art is inspiring. I wish I had a book like this around when I was younger.

I am an instant fan, dude. I look forward to studying your work!!

Love your art good sir. The designs are simple yet stylised in that nice Frazetta sort of way. Excellent work!
