Any Artists Out There?

I've been watching some playthroughs of some of my favourite Thief:TDP levels like "Down in the Bonehoard" and I've found myself wondering about hints of Lost City stuff or precursor civilizations as discussed in the Thief background thread. Got me hankering for some more old bones, so I sketched out a couple of Fire Shades or possible undead mages as I might imagine them lurking in deep sandstone caverns!

"No proposition Euclid wrote,

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

The odds are on the cheaper man."

I'm gonna bump this as I've been doodling.

 

Trying to get into a general air of productivity, glueing some Warhammer 40k mdoels. I generally get more pleasure from drawing them, however!

Thanks, man! I just looked over some thumbnails, might try some pagan monster doodles or some more undead, they are fun to draw!

Springheel drew quite a few images of what he thought the feel of a normal Bridgport scene would look like - those can be found scattered about and on his website - and of course in the main menu when it loads in TDM.

I was hoping for some drawings/scratchings of places which we can recognize as places in a fm now.

 

Here it is...I don't think it's a spoiler:

Thanks, Springheel!

 

I believe LemonyFresh had some similar art of an isometric view of a level he was trying to get made with someone. Kind of a pier / fishing village affair.

I would like to show my drawings. They are not related to TDM topic, but I will show you that what works there. (TDM, there are concept drawings, which created the campaign Sly Project, but have not scanned them. Later.)

My linkthese are my drawings

 

 

I especially like this pencil portrait and the main landscape!

Well, I did this, but it's irrelevant to TDM ...

Wow! That's very nice Grayman! I have always had an aversion to colour pencils, even colour generally - trying to cure myself with some Gouache paint I bought just recently. =3

 

Brainstorming some designs and paint schemes for some Space Wolf Dreadnoughts - I don't know why but I'm really happy with the bruiser at the bottom of the page! I wish those power claws weren't like £10 from Forge World >.>

@ Diego

 

Hee! Reminds me of the robot Claptrap from Borderlands - good stuff. =3

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Back from a spontaneous 1-week trip to Lanzarote with wife and son. I hope beta testing has been going well...

      Even though I've been absent a long while, I still find myself dreamily wishing for the free time to do TDM mission development. When working on new research projects I'll find myself involuntarily thinking, "hee hee this could be a fun texture or readable or bit of map architecture." Or I find myself absentmindedly responding out loud to odd noises with a drunkguard-like "must've been rats!"
