This was for the spider dragon DSG on CA. I went through several really bad sketches and couldn't quite get the synergy of both spider and dragon into one coherent design, it was either too much dragon or too much spider. I think a slight xenomorph or stag beetle look helped the sketch work, and liked it so much I wanted to flesh it out into a relatively finished piece. I also thought about the kind of environment that would enable such a creature, and came up with this blurb...

 

The King Spider Dragon (lat. Draco Araneae Rex) is a large, eight legged dragon native to NGC-2335b. A distant cousin to the Common Drake, the King Spider Dragon has evolved to an impressive size due to the high oxygen level of the planet, and has developed eight dexterous limbs to manage the treacherous environment. The Dragon spends most of its life alone, hunting smaller creatures hiding in crevices and rock formations. A light skeleton allows it to fly despite it's appendages, and three sets of fluorescent eyes aids navigation and hunting during night-time or stormy weather.

Well not recent. I made these model drawings at art school some 25 years ago.  

This is my friend’s stuff. He’s so god damn good and has finally started sharing his drawings and paintings on Instagram.

Crazy solid things again up there.

Me and my painting buddy were making these small pieces a couple of years ago for a artsy project that lasted about a year. Now we're inviting people to take out babies home, they're pretty idmish abstracts:

I also made a video. I think it's not bad given the fact that I used a camera phone (not an iPhone 567, just Philips)  ;). I want to make the short track to this video. light and shade did a good job here.

Nice Chim!! how long did this take? did you only reference one photo?

Thanks! Procreate says I've spent 26 hours on it. I used a blurry YouTube screenshot. Most of the time was spent trying to get the right colors, I don't color pick off of my references and with a shitty picture it gets pretty hard. I almost had to change color with each brushstroke so a lot of headaches were involved. But it's a rare reference of a human ribcage that isn't some clinical, idealized model, and it's pretty good practice.

 

I got the size of the hands really wrong due to the hard angle, but managed to make some convincing fingertips that were out of frame in the original. I'll probably spend less time trying to exactly replicate photos in the future.

No colour picking from your reference respect! Thats handy discipline to have if you're looking to paint in oils + acrylics.  

 

gif I made this week.

      I believe there is already a topic dedicated to graphics: now I haven't found it, so I write this: eventually deleted and incorporated it into the already existing one.   Among other things, In this interview Ian Anderson talks about his relationship with S&R and the philosophical stimulus specifically related to ae, and the love for oversteps:   https://warp.net/editorial/reasonable-person-an-interview-with-ian-anderson?fbclid=IwAR1sKpJx1eULMucWR_HwklBLSi0yCtnMei2-iRFuYoX9fUfd6hYMnxY0QvQ

      I'm looking for high res AE artwork to turn into a poster for my room, the only problem is it's somewhat hard to find... 
      I'd love to have the poster in A1 or at least 20" x 30" so it's gotta be big. Can anyone help? 

      Pic related my best find so far, I'm sure you guys have better shit though.

      We're all now familiar with how SYRO's artwork reflects the costs associated with putting out a record - Richard has even said each releases' info is tailored for that release (e.g.: vinyl version has different data than say the CD version).
       
      But what about the digital versions? the iTunes artwork for SYRO is just a chartreuse circle with "APHEX TWIN" "SYRO" in it (the full release I believe comes with a digital booklet), so unless there is more, the numbers for the digital versions aren't there (do the Bleep downloads have different artwork?).
       
      It's certainly an interesting concept - nice too they included mention of the Caustic Window Kickstarter and the "Making of Windowlicker" video costs, although how that relates to SYRO is yet to be seen.
       
      It will be neat to try and extrapolate the # of pressings and costs once all the versions are out (assuming of course they started off with actual costs and divided by the number of pressings for each format).
