Artwork Description

The idea is that the vehicle is part of an off world survey effort. here on a distant world they have discovered the remains of an ancient civilisation. The problem is its current population are rather nasty and overly large spiders. A little bit cliche I know but good fun! Thanks for looking!

Matthew, you commented on some of my own images a while ago and now I have had a look at yours. Your work is among the best on this site, really. There are so many as well. I am quite prolific as a space/astronomical artist (no examples on this site, see but my SF and other stuff is quite limited. Keep it up, old chap!

Hi, and thank you for your kind words. I hope everything goes well when you start at your new art school. You have a great deal of talent and time is on your side. I'm looking forward to seeing more work from you in the future. Best of luck!

I have actually seen your gallery a coupple of times. I can see that you have improved it since then. You are one of the best, I give you that!
I'm not studying art I hav just finnished a course in art and painting (for amateurs) that was quit understimulating. but after this summer I'll start at a new art school, so I'll hpefully get better.

See you around!

Thanks James, I've really got a thing at the moment for large scenes. I think it stems from my interest in the matte paintings done for movies. You know the sort of thing, the fantastic shots you get in films like Lord of the rings the Star Wars films. They really do stir me up inside. It's those feelings that I try to reproduce in some of the things I paint.
