THE HYBORIAN WORLD


THE HYBORIAN AGE CONCEPT
Hi!
For ages I was wanting to create a landscape from Robert E. Howard's Conan The Barbarian's Hyborian world but for a change to have less focus on Conan himself and more focus on the world around him . For this piece which I did a little while ago, I decided to adapt the art from a cover I did for a good buddy of mine [Michael Ward] and the Destiny Quest series. 
I have created Conan pieces before [either fight scenes or intimate standing poses] but this was my first step into thinking about the Hyborian Age and I thought this could be a good fit for some of the southern kingdoms like Shem or even Khitai to the east. I am planning on more scenes when I have the time to really flesh out his world from the ground up so to speak and start thinking of the Vilayet Sea and the surrounding islands and Stygia and how I think they might look.  
Best Wishes and check back for more art soon!

ANALOG AND ASIMOV'S COVERS!!


Hi!
After seeing my cover art of the new issue of Analog, Science Fiction and Fact Magazine [MARCH/APRIL 2019] I wanted to find as many Analog and Asimov's Science Fiction magazine covers that my art has been on over the years. I have posted them up for you good people to see. I have created a cool montage of them along side each other. Some of them are slightly blurry as I don't have all the magazines. I just found the best images I could on Google. It was pretty cool to see them together like this.
Best Wishes,
Dominic 


ANALOG MARCH/APRIL 2019 COVER ART!

Hi!
Here is the latest cover art for ANALOG, March/April 2019. The art was previously created for Alastair Reynolds Incredible 'On The Steel Breeze' novel. It was originally a wraparound cover. I love what Analog have done with the design!
More coming up very soon!!

STRAIGHT OUTTA DEADWOOD!!

Hi!
Here is the new cover art for those legends at Baen Books [Thanks Toni!] I loved creating this one with the zombie piano player and chorus girl! I wanted to add a little sepia in the colour scheme to keep it a little like those old photos you see of the wild west. This series  [This is book 2] is very popular and you should rush out and purchase your copy right away!!
More coming up very soon!!

CONAN!!!

Hi!
I wanted to share this savage illustration with you! Its inspired from one of my favourite books and films. Conan The Barbarian. This was a pure joy to create and I really wanted to give it a painterly feel with some lovely textures and earthy hues. I hear rumours that Arnie is starring in a new Conan movie for a possible 2020 release date! I can't wait!
Enjoy this triumpant scene, my barbaric friends! :)

WEREWOLVES!!!!!!!!!!

Hey!!
I love werewolves [who doesn't!] so I felt the lycanthropic urge to post these up!
These were part of a series of books called the Demonata for legendary author, Darren Shan. As you would imagine, I loved every snarling, blood curdling minute creating these hairy terrors!
'Beware the moon and stick to the road' & 'We should never try to deny the beast - the animal within us' [ do you know these famous werewolf movie quotes??] answers on a postcard :)
