Bloodbane1_04.jpg
Image: Bloodbane1_04.jpg   600x846 231538 bytes 2004.03.27

This is the first full-body piece I've done of Bloodbane for ages and ages and ages. The trees were thrown in more for scale than anything else 'cos he's b.i.g. \r\nNo wonder Blackjack gets annoyed at his curse trapping him in his current form when this is what he's supposed to look like.\r\n\r\nart and character I.Davis

A dragon. With three heads. This took forever and a day to ink and colour, and then my scanner made the background come up all grainy. *sigh*\r\n\r\n I.Davis

She's showing what happens to people who get confused by her name and refer to her as a 'he'...\r\n\r\nart and character I.Davis

Keordax likes horses. \r\n(please ignore the lame background).\r\n\r\nI.Davis '04

sunset_dragons.jpg
Image: sunset_dragons.jpg   550x400 77697 bytes 2004.03.01

On the barren shores of Tenra Lake a dragon eagerly awaits the return of its mate after a day's hunting.\r\n\r\nAcrylics on that hard carboard you get on the backs of calenders. There is more to the painting than this, but this is all that fitted on my scanner. I'll reupload once I get a decent photo.\r\n(c) I.Davis '04

not_funny.jpg
Image: not_funny.jpg   430x600 163001 bytes 2004.02.28

Darkclaw, indulging in a bit of mountain climbing (hey, even assassin's need hobbies), gets to have a laugh at his friend and former employer, Blackjack's expense when a sudden downdraft messes up the dracosvulf's landing.\r\nThis took forever to colour.\r\n\r\nCharacters and artwork (c) I.Davis\r\n

Image: possessed.jpg   515x700 142666 bytes 2004.02.15

Q: Why is it a bad idea to KO Shade?\r\nA: 'cos then you get Raven to deal with (as illustrated above).\r\nSometimes when he's in control, Raven manifests as a kind of ghost around F'lair's body, mirroring the movements of his host. The ghost's touch drains the life out of anything that comes in contact with it.\r\nSlightly off-topic, but possibly not entirely as it is a dragon picture.\r\n\r\nArt and Characters (c) I.Davis

Aquarelles again. The background and I have unresolved issues. But I can't be arsed coming back to this again and it's better than I looked before I water blended the pencils.

Just a quickie. Karismacolour aquarelles on bog standard paper.

On occasion Blackjack uses the Ring of Change which allows him to adopt human form... and originally this picture was just going to be of what he looks like as a human. Then I got influenced by the music I was listening to (and if you're not familiar with the lyrics at the top, insert the first word written on his vest in the blank). So here's some more characterisation:\r\nBlackjack and Tiamat have a very 'on/off' relationship... here's one of the reasons why (and for those who need it spelling out to them: No, that female dragon is not Tiamat. And boy does Black' get in trouble later).\r\nBeen listening to too much W.A.S.P. and reading too much Lobo.... and with any luck this'll send some ppl's minds hurtling off down a horrid slope. \r\nart and characters (c) I.Davis '04

This took a long time to colour. A *long* time. That'll teach me to try anything complicated.\r\nBlackjack and Knightmare up against a water demon. Knightmare's hooves only burn when he's flying, so here he's just landed.\r\n(c) I.Davis '03

in_trouble.jpg
Image: in_trouble.jpg   700x459 176689 bytes 2003.12.09

Blackjack can probably take consolation in the fact Saragoth doesn't want him dead... the greater demon just wants him suffering an eternity of torture instead.\r\n\r\nSloppy colouring of a picture I scanned in a couple of years ago then forgot about 'til I found the lineart today. But somehow I still like it. Linked to yet another story I haven't written.\r\n\r\nBlackjack and Saragoth (c) I.Davis

I coloured it. That was supposed to be a Jack Daniels bottle, but I got the shape wrong so didn't bother with the label. It's whiskey anyway.\r\n\r\nBlackjack (c) I.Davis

syrax_bloodbane1.jpg
Image: syrax_bloodbane1.jpg   500x671 138419 bytes 2003.10.26

Blackjack's true form. Syrax earned the title 'Bloodbane' from the peoples he used to terrify. Acrylics on 24" x 18" stretched canvas. Ugh, my computer's still dead, so I had to use someone else's to edit the photo so the contrast just doesn't seem right :( Maybe I'll reupload it once I get my new pc.\r\n\r\nArt and character (c) I.Davis

Just got this done today - the product of 4 hours under the needle! Covers my whole upper arm and the tail curls right round the underneath of my arm. It hurt. Lots.\r\n\r\nDesign (c) I.Davis\r\nTattooed by Jeff at Evil From the Needle.

Five reasons why you don't piss Tiamat off. Can be up to 10, but here she's in her usual form where she only manifests the 5 Chaotic dragon colours.\r\n\r\ncharacter&art (c) I.Davis '03

angrysy3.jpg
Image: angrysy3.jpg   497x701 145885 bytes 2003.10.04

Blackjack throwing something of a screamy hissy fit. Scene from the end of a Daemonslayers story I'm writing (slowly). He gets a bit pissy after the hssaar High Priestess tries to have him killed. That's just a statue he's standing on.\r\n\r\nCharacter & Artwork (c) I.Davis 03

bloodred.jpg
Image: bloodred.jpg   300x428 50516 bytes 2003.09.13

Guess who just got an airbrush? I'm so glad I got a compressor with it 'cos the compressed air cans are a pain in the behind.\r\n Alas, my scanner evilled it up so the fine detail is all lost and the contrast is too high.\r\n(c) me

sytriask.jpg
Image: sytriask.jpg   500x508 63109 bytes 2003.09.05

Decided to play with those tria pens some more. I like the actual picture here, though!\r\n\r\nBlackjack (c) me!

firefoxs_death.jpg
Image: firefoxs_death.jpg   435x501 75270 bytes 2003.07.07

Blackjack *never* liked Weasel Firefox. So when he finds out the sneaky little b*st*rd tried to double-cross him... \r\n\r\nThe cursed dragon leaves him for dead with a slit throat, but the demon Saragoth appears at the last moment and saves Weasel's life in return for his servitude and the inside information he has on Black'and the other Daemonslayers.\r\n\r\ncharacters and art (c) me '03.\r\n

dracofire.jpg
Image: dracofire.jpg   600x596 65991 bytes 2003.07.03

My first go at acrylics for a long while (excluding the leather coats I've painted). Was talking about painting and stuff with Duck (who's email I still need to reply to!) and felt the urge to have a dabble again.\r\n\r\nI was really pleased how this lil' fella turned out. This was too big for my scanner so I had to stitch it together so I hope that doesn't show up too badly.\r\n\r\n(c) me

And again... I like the b/w one better but I thought I show yous this too.\r\n\r\nIt's the result of me practicing with my tria markers.\r\n\r\n(c) I.Davis

shade_necromancer.jpg

::wanders away for an off-topic kinda momemt:: \r\n"Alone I walked, ugly spirits whispering my name.\r\n Alone I walked through this world,\r\n Their fingers picking at my decaying soul.\r\n Never ceasing, resting or relenting.\r\n Alone I walked, ugly spirits calling my name.\r\n Alone I walked, the ugly spirits crying my name.\r\n And, at last, I have answered them. \r\n Alone I shall not walk again."\r\n\tShade's grip on sanity has always been questionable at best... but when he loses it, he does so with style (unfortunately for any living creatures witihn his immediate vicinity). This picture turned out better than I was expecting in the end (considering the horribleness that kept happening to the background).\r\n\tShade (c) me

dsbprofile.jpg
Image: dsbprofile.jpg   375x606 61585 bytes 2002.06.10

Pretty simple - just a profile pic of Blackjack. Dunno why, just sorta liked it.

shade_werewolf.jpg
Image: shade_werewolf.jpg   450x617 56770 bytes 2002.06.10

Ok, this is Shade (real name F'lair). He's an undead werewolf and he's the other Daemonslayer from me little project thingy. The picture shows his human and were forms and in the background is Raven, the dracoliche who's soul inhabits the place where Shade's used to be (i.e. he's semi-possessed). Shame Raven's evil 'cos Shade's actually a nice guy (so goodness knows why he's teamed up with Blackjack...).\r\n

bloodbane_vs_nacexa.jpg
Image: bloodbane_vs_nacexa.jpg   750x535 178588 bytes 2002.06.10

Syrax Bloodbane - Blackjack's true form which he can transform back into on occasion, but only briefly. Before he got cursed this huge dragon terrorized and held sway over the continent of Caevalonia for over a century, aided by his underground network of spies, criminals, the occasional sorcerer and less powerful members of his own kind (all known collectively as the Blackswords).\r\nIn this pic it looks like he's about to make a meal of that nacexa. I liked how the head and forelimbs turned out here (though why I did his gums yellow, I don't know) but Bloodbane's hindlegs are too far forward and make his body look too small. Still, I guess it gives some idea what he looks like. The full sized pic (which I didn't cut most of the background out of) is on me webpage (which now works properly!).\r\nall stuff (c) me.

retribution.jpg
Image: retribution.jpg   460x598 67844 bytes 2002.06.08

This was a background for a poster for University College London's rock&metal society night (called 'Retribution') I designed (ok, originally it was for Brunell uni's 'Fight Fire With Fire' night, but that's beside the point). I took off the text layers for posting it here as they kinda got in the way.

dark_hawk.jpg
Image: dark_hawk.jpg   400x665 129204 bytes 2002.06.08

In the pre-dawn halflight, master assassins Hawkwind (left) and Darkclaw are thinking about reconsidering their route when their trail deep in the Greater Wilds leads over a ridge to reveal a f@*king great big dragon in the way. \r\n\r\nAgain these are characters from my Daemonslayers thingy. This was picture was a scene from a story I never got round to finishing.
