Alien Bust: Warrior

Alien Warrior Work In Progress...

I've been working on the portfolio now for some time, inbetween freelance contracts, and have been working on the different aspects like props, creatures, characters and vehicles etc. Its been a slow burn as I gear up towards having a proper website, with examples of all the various facets of design so as to showcase a good cross section of abilities to gain new working opportunities. 

So far I have a range of things together, although I'd say that most of them are works in progress. Rather than sit on everything while I tweak and polish an entire gallery of art, I thought it best to release one or two of these WIPS into the wild for you to check out... I've been so precious about what I show so as to have it be my best, but sometimes, just to let people know you still exist, you just have to put it out there!

This latest is a member of a proud warrior race... I'm thinking of having the jaw be distendible much like that of a snake - while the membrane covering the olfactory glands can articulate and peel back, to reveal a flashy and aggressive display of bright colour beneath. All ideas at this point, and all ideas that I'll be fleshing out in the final gallery. More to come soon! And more to come in the realm of all things Dragon oriented as well....

Brutish Bust: Alien Tracker

Alien Tracker (Work in progress....)

Time has not been in high supply of late, but in the interest of keeping things humming along here I've posted up a work in progress of this alien brute. Still a fair bit I'd like to work up here, but thought I'd share his progress thus far. I'll be adding elements like ritual scarring (great idea Tony Parmenter, thanks for that!) and costuming elements that reflect culture and his background as a hunter and tracker. Stay tuned for updates on this brutish character!

Partners In Crime... Book Cover Art

Finished cover art for 'Partners In Crime' (Book 1)

Promotional poster art for 'Partners In Crime' (Book 1) 

This May marks four years of Soulful Savage, and in that time I've had the pleasure of partnering up and collaborating with some wonderfully innovative and creative people. This time around saw me creating the cover art for the pilot book in a series called 'Partners In Crime' by author and screenwriter Mr. Ian David Noakes. The book itself is a humorous, but all too true social commentary on the state of play in today's modern world of raging debt, crime and joblessness. Centered on the lives of three unlikely allies thrust together by adversity and necessity, it's a book that asks the question: 'how far will ordinary people go to survive the change of the modern world?' A question that many of us (myself included) can relate to only too well...

I had an absolute ball creating this cover depicting Noah Smith (far left), Harry Holmes (center) and Milly Cloud (far right) for what promises to be the beginning of a long and enduring creative partnership. I'm deeply looking forward to working on the next Partners In Crime cover art! Feel free to check out the book and register your support for Partners In Crime on Amazon at:

You can also find Ian David Noakes at his website:

So here's to partners; to finding those rare and fantastically talented people to team up with, in the name of art, culture, friendship and entertainment... for it is through the power of people (the many) and not through the individual alone, that we achieve our greatest visions. Keep on creating people!

Soulful Savage Concept Art & Design in 2014...

Hi all, it's been an extremely long time since last I posted anything up here! An update has been definitely long overdue! There’s been much to attend to as I write my children's books, hit the freelance work and in between, update the tired old folio. The books are still humming along and will have their day, and the folio is building day by day... I'm just making sure that whatever I put out into the world is worthy of attention, so I'm being pretty critical with myself. So much to get right... I just can't wait to share what I've been up to though. So thanks to the Faithful that keep checking here for new artwork, I am ever grateful :) There's definitely more on the way from me (and the Soulful Savage here) in 2014!

If you have any queries, or wish to employ my services for any of your creative needs, please don't hesitate to contact me. Keep on keeping on!

Kindest regards,
