Doom Marines - Chainsaw

They thought they had all their bases covered. They had all the security access codes changed and promptly lost. They made sure there were no military-grade weapons left lying around anywhere on the base. When the time came, those that weren't possessed were soon hunted down. The UAC councillor and his bodyguard were quickly disposed of. They had the Artifact safely hidden away. They thought nothing could stop them. They forgot one thing.\r\n\r\nRaptors with chainsaws.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) FinalGamer\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime\r\n\r\n...aaand that's enough from me on this project.

Image: Doom-Sniper.jpg   800x584 128936 bytes 2008.04.18

Doom Marines - The Sniper

Just one more left now...\r\n\r\nThis time, we've got the UAC Marine sniper on show. You'd think they wouldn't see much work on Mars, what with the enclosed spaces and all... but out in the open or in those corridors, the ability to blow someone's head off with the first shot can never be underestimated.\r\n\r\nBoom, headshot.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) Morti\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-Heavy.jpg   553x800 112870 bytes 2008.04.04

Doom Marines - the Heavy

Just two more of these left in the project...\r\n\r\nFor now, meet the heavy weapons expert of our little Doom Marine squad. Of course, having to use that minigun as often as he does, he also has to carry around a truckload of ammo for the bloody thing...\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) Gareeku\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-Stalker.jpg   657x800 168360 bytes 2008.03.01

Doom Marines - Stalker

Sometimes it helps to have someone on your side that can quickly and quietly get through the various vent shafts and shiv the baddies on the other side before letting in the rest of your guys...\r\n\r\nMeet the Stalker. Pity the arch-vile.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) his creator\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: FG-Cube.jpg   800x608 130558 bytes 2008.02.08

F1-NAL [Cube]

My first proper commission...\r\n\r\nThis one's inspired by the SNES game Live-a-Live. FinalGamer here has taken on the role of Cube, the ship's resident home-built bot... and eventually ends up having to face off against OD-10. Don't ask me, I haven't quite got that far in the game.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) Final Gamer\r\nLive-a-Live, Cube, OD-10 (c) Squaresoft\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-SpecOps.jpg   800x491 189523 bytes 2007.12.29

Doom Marines - Special Ops

Because honestly, when you've got the clearance, what's better than a plasma gun? TWO plasma guns. I certainly don't envy whatever's on the other side of the barrels.\r\n\r\nNow... granted, the lighting on most of his body isn't perfect, but if there's one thing I'm pleased with, it's the lighting on his face. And the eye. That turned out great. And I think the switch in reference material for the armour is an improvement as well...\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) Ace Allen\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-BFG.jpg   800x633 166147 bytes 2007.12.22

Doom Marines - BFG guy

Aaand here's yet another Doom pic. Simple enough this time... just the lucky marine that got his paws on one of the new BFG 9000 series.\r\n\r\nRemember kids, squirrels and high-powered energy weapons don't mix well.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) Antious\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Fire-Sweep.jpg   800x727 104851 bytes 2007.12.19

Took a bit of a break from the Doom-inspired pics here and drew one of my own characters for a change. It's also a bit of an experiment with some GIMP tools... admittedly, mostly with Blur. Still, I'm relatively pleased with the results.\r\n\r\nSo, we've got Xander Morhaime leading a fire sweep through some enemy lines. Though it'd be more apt to call it shooting fish in a barrel. When you've got armour plating under your skin and a robot army behind you... Ancient history, though - nowadays Xander brings his two Wraith-pattern guards along on such rare occasions, and prefers impact weapons to ballistic ones...\r\n\r\nCharacter and artwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-Medic.jpg   800x657 173276 bytes 2007.12.15

Doom Marines - Medic

Next in line for the Doom-inspired pics... the medic. Contrary to popular opinion, medics don't pop into existance fully loaded with an inexhaustible supply of medkits or what have you. They've got to get them from somewhere... \r\n\r\nAnd that's why there's hardly any medkits left by the time you get there.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) his owner.\r\nDoom (c) id Software.\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime\r\n

Image: Doom-Tech.jpg   785x800 191228 bytes 2007.12.06

Doom Marines - Tech Op

...because sometimes, all that technical knowledge just means knowing which cables to yank out.\r\n\r\nAnother in the series of Doom-inspired pics. Our techie here apparently just killed a Hell Knight by airlock. Let that be a lesson, never mess with the techies.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) Lord Crayak (and you wouldn't believe how much of a pain an anthro leech is...)\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-Scout.jpg   800x681 155685 bytes 2007.11.17

Doom Marines - Scout

Second piece in the series.\r\n\r\nHere's the scout. As you can see, the UAC Marines are an equal-opportunity employer...\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) EvilBugz\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Doom-Sarge.jpg   800x596 212011 bytes 2007.11.14

Doom Marines - Sergeant

Another series in the works...\r\n\r\nSure, he's got long hair, a goatee and is wearing glasses. He also just shoved that imp's face through that monitor. Any doubts as to why he's the sarge?\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) The Playwright\r\nDoom (c) id Software\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Stalkers outside the CNPP

More Stalker fan-art, as well as fan-art for fellow forumites from the Jack forums... Actually got the basic idea for this during my brief stint in the army.\r\n\r\nAll characters (c) their creators\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Stalkers.jpg   1178x800 171219 bytes 2007.09.04

Stalkers out in the Zone

My last bit of art for a good long time... Just a bit more random insipration, really. You know you play too much S.T.A.L.K.E.R. if you can name the artifact AND the anomaly in the picture.\r\n\r\nStalker game (c) THQ (if I remember correctly)\r\nAirborne (middle) & Final Gamer (right) (c) their owners\r\nUnnamed fox & artwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Waiting for the next Big Push

A rather sudden (if random) bit of inspiration here... and an even more random assortment of characters. Hard to guess whether the Grim Reaper's more put off by being offered a smoke, or by the knowledge of said smoke being passed down the trench for the last ten minutes...\r\n\r\nOr it could just be someone treading on his robe. How he manages to keep it clean with all that mud around is anyone's guess.\r\n\r\nVinci Nickolaides, Jack, Arcaton and Airborne are (c) their creators.\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Convention Art - Farrago from "Jack"

Second of the pics done during the EJFC. This time, it's the angel Farrago, also from the webcomic "Jack". Sketched and inked during the con, coloured back home afterwards.\r\n\r\nFarrago & "Jack" webcomic (c) David Hopkins\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Convention Art - Lita from "Jack"

One of two finished pieces drawn during the EJFC in Dublin this year (it's a small affair, don't worry if you haven't heard of it.) Sketched and inked during the convention, coloured and such when I got back. And only now I realise I mucked up on the eyes...\r\n\r\nLita & the "Jack" webcomic (c) David Hopkins\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Vampire-Slaying Raptor

My first commission! How the time flies... anyway, the character is one Final Gamer, shown here dressed up as Simon Belmont of Castlevania fame, complete with whip (and candle that's bound to be on the recieving end of said whip soon).\r\n\r\nSimon Belmont & Castlevania (c) Konami\r\nFinal Gamer (c) his creator\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Character-gallery-03.jpg   751x634 117508 bytes 2006.10.15

Next batch of characters:\r\n\r\nAlbert Williams, lieutenant, the resident marksman from Jason's unit, showing off a sniper-pattern railgun.\r\nJanet Kell, quartermaster sergeant, Jason's communications expert, shown here with a plasma gun and a comms long-range transmitter.\r\nSarah Briggs, private, Mike Torino's close friend, shown here in the newer silksteel uniform and holding a "Needle" laser rifle.\r\n\r\nCharacters and artwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Character-gallery-02.jpg   979x683 155134 bytes 2006.09.20

Continuing with the series of characters from my stories (never mind some have never appeared in any yet.) Left to right:\r\n\r\nXander Morhaime, in the uniform from his Black Ops days, showing off a pair of GKI-1 impact pistols.\r\nLance-corporal Amanda Covenant, Xander's mechanic (well, he's a cyborg after all). Holding a nanite-based repair tool, too.\r\nWarrant officer 4th class Alice Wardwell, the pilot for Jason Torino's unit.\r\nCaptain Patrick Galloway, Ezekiel Rage's second in command. Yes, he's a blue hedgehog, no, he's not related to Sonic.\r\n\r\nCharacters and artwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Character-gallery-01.jpg   754x700 147334 bytes 2006.09.08

Time for some of my own characters for a change. They're certainly overdue for some recents pics. Going from left to right, we have:\r\n\r\nJason Torino, major,\r\nMichael Torino, private, Jason's younger brother and a medic in his unit,\r\nEzekiel Rage, colonel,\r\nChristopher C. Lis, captain.\r\n\r\nCharacters and artwork (c) Xander Morhaime.

Image: JReq-Spotlight.jpg   467x701 106664 bytes 2006.08.26

Aaand here's the final piece in the series of volunteers from the Jack forums. I honestly love how it came out, not much else to say. (Give me half a year and I'll find a ton of mistakes, I'll bet.)\r\n\r\nAlright, maybe the spotlight shadow is a bit off...\r\n\r\nJReq (c) his creator\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Nekex.jpg   244x655 41776 bytes 2006.08.26

Another in the series of volunteers from the Jack forums. I'm quite happy with how the scale texture and all turned out this time.\r\n\r\nHere's hoping I managed to clean it up sufficiently this time around and it won't get moved to sketches again...\r\n\r\nNekex (c) his player\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Kesh.jpg   320x674 58973 bytes 2006.06.27

Another of the volunteers from the Jack forum. I'm not entirely happy with how the fur shading turned out, but aside from that I think this one is decent enough...\r\n\r\nKesh (c) his player\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime

Image: Prof-Vertex.jpg   584x627 117934 bytes 2006.06.20

It makes you wonder if the universe is trying to tell you something when your scanner dies just as you get over your creative block...\r\n\r\nBut who cares what the universe thinks, eh? New scanner, new pic, waaay overdue. Again a volunteer from the Jack forums, prof. Vertex. As a side note, that green stuff on his clothes is supposed to be light from the display table he's standing over. Just in case it wasn't immediately obvious.\r\n\r\nMessed up the wings, though...\r\n\r\nArtwork (c) Xander Morhaime\r\nProf. Vertex (c) his player

Image: DocJackal.jpg   356x800 72421 bytes 2006.01.23

Another one of the volunteers from the Jack forums. This time, one Doctor Jackal. Some of you might've already seen him in comissions by other artists... he gets around, doesn't he.\r\n\r\nFor an overnight piece, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.\r\n\r\nDoctor Jackal (c) his owner.\r\nArtwork by Xander Morhaime.

Image: shearhart.jpg   328x800 80845 bytes 2005.12.24

Ugh.. I honestly had no idea art school would sap the creative energies *that* much. Thankfully, Christmas break rolled around, giving me time to get back to drawing the volunteers from the Jack forum.\r\n\r\nHere, we've Lupus Shearhart. In case it's not plainly visible (and I know it isn't), the shirt he's wearing is a band shirt for Desparate Measures.\r\n\r\nLupus Shearhart belongs to his player.\r\nArtwork by Xander Morhaime.\r\n\r\nAfterthought: I need to figure out how to get my scanner to stop bleaching out some colours.

Image: Mookitty.jpg   293x800 63585 bytes 2005.08.26

Getting back to work on the volunteers from the Jack forum. That's about all there is to say, really. Still, I'm quite happy with how this one turned out.\r\n\r\nCharacter (c) her creator.\r\nArtwork by Xander Morhaime.
