Blitzbert's Grossly Overpowered Document Shredder by Mourkhayn
Blitzbert's Grossly Overpowered Document Shredder
My entry for the Goblin versus Gnomes Challenge organised by dA and Blizzard. 

Blitzbert Onestone was a clerk working in the Goblin bureau of patents. Behind this rather bland facade hid a powerful genius in the field of physics. Faced with having to destroy vast quantities of paperwork on a regular basis (oh, the joys of office jobs), Blitzbert created a mechanical contraption to help with this annoying chore.

The Goblin bureau of patents has not been reconstructed since. The fearsome machine that was found in the smouldering ruins has been used on the battlefield on numerous occasions. Of Blitzbert, there is no trace...

Commission - Monster concept by Mourkhayn
Commission - Monster concept
Another concept for one of BugMasterD's monsters.


This... Creature, I want to be a dragon, four legs, two wings. Though it's wings bend downwards, instead to act like a third pair of legs(Including a set of claws at the wing's 'elbow' to mimic the foot of a dragon.) and the webbing of it's wings trailing backwards, loosely to look like a ragged, cape.

The front pair of legs(Not the wing-legs, though.) appear limp, as if they were/are dragged like they have no functionality in them.

The actual skull shape of the dragon nearly round and... Almost worm-like except for the scales/plates, eyesockets, crystal horns, and mouth

It's horns looking jagged, like they're made of crystal. It has four empty eye sockets, emptied, like the man in the commission before this. The jaws of the dragon SLIGHTLY agape, though also sewn in place with a large crystal in it's mouth, the spikes of the crystal protruding out of it's face, around the sewn shut jaws.

It will have swords and daggers pierced through it's back.

Various wounds across it's body, large and sewn poorly around what would appear to be crystals, large and spiky shoved into the flesh. Though these gaping wounds also show ghostly, human hands (Which I personally think with a bit of a misty appearance would be suitable?)

And a human face stitched into some part of it's hide, I'm not picky where.

Darker lines trailed down from those emptied eye sockets. As if tears of blood stained the sides of his face.

Skaven Gutter Runner by Mourkhayn
Skaven Gutter Runner
Gutter Runners are sneaky infiltrators sent ahead of the Skaven army to disrupt enemy lines and supplies, and take out threats such as war machines and unescorted mages. This character is taken from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles universe, owned and developed by Games Workshop

My first "polished" digital illustration. It took a while to get there but I really enjoyed the whole process. I feel like everything is set up properly and I can really start to tap into all the goodness that my Wacom packs. It is not perfect (I still have issues with legs) but it definitely is a step in the right direction.

I am fine, I have a couple of weeks hollidays now :D :D And you? have you been traveling? great! I wish I could.

Glad to hear things are getting better for you. What was the final verdict about your study units? Have they been validated or will you have to wait for another year or so?

I've only been going on small trips, barely a couple hundred kilometer one way, but it is still quite nice to explore other places!
Do you have plans for these 2 weeks of holidays?

Take care!
