Mutie lover!

Neillien, in cyberspace no one can hear you scream! At least I can't...awfully quit....(tumbleweed)....

So whatever happened to good old fashioned nonsensical mutants? You know, the kind that blended with scorpions and bats and shit because of fallout. Hell, Total Recall had a whole city filled with them. Granted, those were the space variety, but still fun stuff. I mean mutants were all the rage in the 70's and 80's. I sort of miss them. We need another really good, fun, scorched earth movie staring some really trippy mutants. I bet you'd be good at making one of those. Just saying.

NEILL-CHA! Sup, curly-q?

Here's a piece of lunch art and me wrapping up and old piece of fan art.

The fan art is of a character named Lord Cockswain created by this totally awesome concept artist who works down at Weta. Fella's name is Greg Broadmore. If you have not heard of him, you should totally check him out. Trust me, you won't be sorry. I sort of dropped the ball on the art piece (Sorry Greg, Cockswain deserved better!), but there's enough in it I liked that I figured I should share it. In case the image's story is sooo muddled you can't tell what's going on, Cockswain has blown a few holes into some big wormy beetle thing, and a lady is swooning for him while an alien serves tea. Fairly easy story.

The other pic is an alien. No story there. If you don't get that it's an alien, then I really fucked up that one.

Touching up an oldy.

Neillios, greetings human! I know how you like the sci-fi, so I gave you a sci-fi name. Sweet, isn't it? Neillllllios.

This is an old piece. I always liked the old robot, but man the original foreground character made me want to vomit on top of a puppy. So quick new foreground element. Not much. Trying out the new Cintiq at work. Pretty sweet, I must saw. Although editing things in Photoshop are not quite as easy.

Have a great weekend dude!

If I Only Had a Brain...

Neill baby, how's it going. Do you like the new header? Grabbed a font from Blambot (awesome free fonts). Great place.

So here's a piece that got into Spectrum 16. That makes me happy because a lot of people made fun of it. Gave me a pretty hard time...for a year.

It's an enchanted scarecrow. It wanders farmers fields keeping pests away. Everyone laughed at it's size. "Jesus; how big are the crows?" "You need a bigger scarecrow to scare the scarecrows." Blah, blah, blah. Neill have you seen the Guild Wars world? I'd say this scarecrow is about the bare minimum you would need. I mean check this shit out, there's 'effing dragons!

It was canned, almost immediately. So, I entered in Spectrum, because I still liked it. BOOM! It got in. I win, they eat crow; scarecrow.

Wood Elf

Neill Blomkampenstein, what's the charge? Get it? Yeah, pretty lame Frankenstein reference. Oh wells, they cant'st all be wieners.

So man, what's up with elves? I remember those guys being pretty scary as a kid. Well, at least some of them. The Wood Elves from the old Hobbit cartoon were creepy little fuq's. Granted, they had the glowing crown variety too, but now elves seem to be solely angelic, clean, pointy eared caucasians, with great aim. I want some creepy elves. The kind that might help you out, or might eat your liver and wear your pancreas as a hat. You never really know.

So that brings me to da' art. Creepy elf thing. It's fantasy, quick and easy really. It's lunch art, so no too much time to put into it. I've worked on a fantasy game for around six or seven years now. Fantasy seems to come pretty easy...sigh.

Damn, I want to draw robots shooting lasers.

Neill-dog, what's the chinchilla, man?

Here's an oldy-moldy-goody from many moons ago. I just added some hair to the balls and threw down a ground (Lunchtime work). Mushy, icky, swampy environment. Like the dead marshes in LOTR: The Two Towers. This s-o-b would blend in a lot better in the final enviro. It lures smaller animals towards it's gaping hole and crams em' on in. Nom, nom, nom.

Well back to it. Wish I could show you my work art. Fun stuff lately.

Really Neill? Really?

So here I am thinking that you're just to busy with your new movie to contact me. Little did I know, you're hanging with your new buddies at private screenings. That's right Neill, I know your secret. Chiggity check it:

@slashfilm I'm not allowed to say anythng about what I thought of Avatar, but saw it in a screening room with neill blomkamp, who didn't sign an NDA. He loved it... I will say this, it's hard to disagree with Neil :)

For the record, your new pal can't even get your name right.

I thought maybe we could see this together. I was even going to buy the popcorn. You're on your own if you want a drink though. Now, well I guess I'll have to go with my Wife, or Dad, or Dan, or...well, there's lots of people I can see it with. Not the point.

To be honest, I don't blame you. Shit, I really want to see Avatar too. I've wanted to see it since 2003 when Cameron first started talking about getting people back in the theaters.

I knew somebody who was concepting for the Alita idea; Cameron had the two ideas in early pre-production for a while. The artist IM'd me when they decided to go with Avatar. Being an Alita fan, I was a little bummed. Then I sort of (complicated) worked with another guy who had done some work on the creature design with Neville Page. Two guys from our studio came back telling us his stories about working on Avatar. Pretty good stories.

I'm glad the flick is getting good buzz. I'm a bit of a Cameron fanboy. YES, EVEN TITANIC.

So you liked it?

Come sail away....

Neill! Sorry man, been busy. I know what you be thinking though; I don't care. I DO!

Here's a lunch quickie. I wish I had more time with it, but I know I'll probably never touch it again. Wanted to Foss it up a bit more with some cool patterns and . Oh well. The bottom folds up and the back and the legs extend to land. The legs would work in sort of the same way they do on a dragonfly. The ship could land on some seriously uneven terrain.

Anyway, can't wait to see what you do next.

Chillin' in my new room;
