More Robots and a little promotion.

Something I never get to do much is Science Fiction, so when Dave [Morris] gave me the 'Heart of Ice' book I reveled in it so to speak. Last time I posted pictures of some of the roughs I drew to establish character ...for example the Robot, Gilgamesh.This time see the final picture used and another scene from the book, The Lost City.

Robots now ... a few more roughs from draft ideas for 'Abraxas', Dave and Jamie [Thomson's] other Fabled Lands Project. 
All drawn a very long time ago, and only seeing the light of day now.

Now a little bit of promotion of a new title coming out in France soon, why my promotion, well it does contain a few of my illustrations and I like the 'promoter' [grin]. It is called "Loup Solitaire - Livre d'Aventure" and relates to the world of LONE WOLF [Joe Dever's magnum opus].
The preorder price is 25 euros only (instead of 34 euros in the shops when it will be published) and shipping costs are totally FREE for European countries until 31th March ! 
As these are usually heavy books that's a good price I think. 
Name of the book : "Loup Solitaire - LE LIVRE D'AVENTURE"
Available : May 2011
Number of pages : 208.
ISBN : 9782917730041
Final price : 34 euros
Language : French
Size : large book 

I can add here that the Le Grimoire publishing standards are very high and they print their titles on good quality stock.
To preorder we accept Paypal, Blue Card or check (from any French bank) also, fans must take a look at the dedicated & official website home page :
Le Grimoire is on Facebook too :

I hope some of you will take a look, though it helps to be able to read French [grin], but then, I cant even speak it let alone read it [sad Russ], but I do like the pictures [grin]. 

Now a couple of coloured pieces of my work [not coloured by me but nice work] and the Sleeping Goblin has been  the subject of a new private commission which I hope to publish soon. As the work I've been doing [am doing really] for a British Film. Actually if i can get permission maybe even sooner.

Oh and finally a 'curiosity', this last Picture, is my work, and was uncredited as such on Coopdevils excellent blog  [] That's not a complaint, by the way [grin] and I was wondering if anyone could remind me as to when and why I did it?

Take care till next.

PS: Welcome James, you just became a 'follower' just as I was about to post, I do hope you find stuff to like [as I do all those who privilege me with your interest in this blog ... many, many, thanks!]
