Foxfield

Foxfield
My latest artwork done for Stygian Fox’s ‘New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley‘ for the Call of Cthulhu RPG, featuring an aerial view of the fictional town of Foxfield, Massachussets.
For the creation of this I used Michele Botticelli‘s ‘City of Arkham’ 3D buildings pack among other things. Render + matte painting and post processing.

In a Foreign Town, In a Foreign Land

In a foreign town
This digital art piece was inspired by a short story from Thomas Ligotti’s ‘Teatro Grottesco‘. The name of the story is ‘His Shadow Shall Rise to a Higher House’ and it’s the first part of a trilogy called ‘In a Foreign Town, In a Foreign Land’.

Techniques used: 3D render + post production. Full size: 4082×3186

Although the story is pretty grim and sickening, it contains some vivid descriptions of the urban landscape of the unnamed northern border town which I found beautiful. (more…)

This is the second 3d art piece inspired by Lebbeus Woods’ Quake City, envisioning an organic earthquake-resistant megastructure built in San Francisco. Click here for Lebbeus’s original drawing. It was originally published in Woods’ pamphlet, Radical Reconstruction, which can be found online (only the written part) at this link.


Dover Court Estate – ArchViz

dover-court-estate-islington-regeneration
The Dover Court regeneration project will create 70 new homes for social rent and homes for sale on council-owned land as well as providing improved open spaces, estates paths, play areas and community facilities.
Glass Canvas collaborated with both Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects Architects and landscape designers Farrer Huxley Associates to create three images of the scheme. The project was shortlisted for the Housing Design Awards 2016.
The image above represents my personal work as part of GC studio. I also made a post-production tutorial which might appear online.


Orchard Wharf – ArchViz

0902-orchard-wharf-buj

Sited in East London this residential development designed by BUJ Architects is one of the latest in the regeneration of Londons Docklands.
Although I contributed on all the other visuals as part of the Glass Canvas team, this particular image was my favourite so I took some time to mix the rendered elements, paint dirt, reflections and improve its atmospheric character. The people were 3D, so their realism is not astonishing.


Tribute to ‘Todbringer’, Ellende Album Cover

Ellende SMALL
Full size: 3500×3500 px. Mixed technique – 3D render + matte painting.

There’s an interesting story behind this painting. I’ve been subscribed to a YouTube channel called ‘Atmospheric Black Metal’ for a while when this album, ‘Todbringer’ by Ellende came out.
I remember listening to it and admiring the artwork, then totally forgot about it for more than a year until one day I accidentally saw a flash of the cover somewhere on the internet. I could not remember its name nor the name of the artist so I went back to the YouTube channel and browsed through the huge collection of albums until I finally found it.

The original image was painted by Lukas, the talented musician himself.
