Any Artists Out There?

Recommended Posts

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!

@SP

 

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

I was wondering, does any fm author made any concept art for their missions, I'd like to see some of that.

 

Dunno about concept art per se, but I made the loading screen for my mission "Lockdown" a while back. :)

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.

It's been a long time since I drew anything, but in high school in about '87 I drew a pretty damn good looking great white shark in pencil. I'll have to double-check, but I think it disappeared some years ago :(

This one you mean? Pretty cool. When is part two planned? :D

 

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

I've got one somewhere for mine...I'll see if I can dig it up and scan it.

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

Sorry for belching up that thread but I need opinions on this:

If the theme is senseless cruelty, I like it - wonder what was your intention here?
