This is a place for me to host concept art for a variety of fictional stories I'm working on in my spare time. Leave comments and critique, and please leave any tutorials on programs like photoshop, Gimp or illustrator that you personally enjoy. I'd always love to learn more about color and how to adapt my sketches into a digital format. I work primarily on Gimp right now. If money allows, or I can find freeware that can mimic it, I'd love to start messing around on Illustrator.
The two primary projects that my art revolves around are The Final War, and The Kysher Core. Both are novel series, which I am currently in the process of writing, and I am looking for avenues to publication. I have never been published.
The Kysher Core revolves around a woman named Vega Coldathis who comes to possess an object that causes unpredictable jumps through space and time, dropping her onto other planets in other time periods at a moment's notice. Vega is the poor man's Doctor Who, lost in the universe against her own volition. Her travels help to reveal to her deeper meaning behind the device's purpose, and the reason she was chosen as its host.
The Final War documents the experiences of several individuals as they undertake different military roles in fighting the largest world war that humanity has ever fought between a dangerous terrorist named Mikhail Streykiev, and the bureaucracy choked United World Police Force. The Western world struggles to maintain unity under a contract military that has little regard for even its own rules, while it faces down a vast military of cybernetic terrors unleashed by a small cadre of determined insurgents. Torin Gall and Julian Venge, a brother and sister whose bodies have been contorted by cybernetic experimentation serve as the best hope for the UWPF's success, but their own personal grievances may serve to rip that hope asunder. Only General Orin Levisal can push them to make the right decisions, even while he suppresses his own massive flaws.
I hope that helps illuminate some of what you'll be looking at, while you're looking through this page. I've just updated as of August, 2016 so enjoy!
