I haven't been super busy here on DA lately, because for the past six months or so I've been occupied with work for clients. While I'd love to post some of that stuff, I'm under obligation to keep most of it on the down-low until the various projects are released. For those curious, I've been working on a board game called Cauldron of the Gods, by www.facebook.com/CivilizedAnim… You can see some of my latest work there. Check them out, and if you're a fan of such games, give them a like, and support their Kickstarter when it's launched. Cauldron of the Gods promises to be loads of fun.

Beacon Tower by J-Humphries
Beacon Tower
The idea behind this piece will be immediately clear to anyone who has seen, or read, The Return of the King. The story includes a scene where a series of beacons warn of an impending invasion. This piece wasn't meant to be a part of Tolkien's world though, and the purpose of the towers is open to interpretation. Perhaps they form some sort of magical protection to the land they encircle. 

Production wise, I started by modeling the tower in a simple 3D mesh to get the basic perspective. There are no photo-textures here, everything was painted using Photoshop's powerful brush tools. The biggest challenge with this scene was portraying the vastness of the mountainside. Hopefully, I have succeeded.

Morte d'Arthur by J-Humphries
Morte d'Arthur
You can listen to the poem here: ia802606.us.archive.org/7/item…

Repaint of this: j-humphries.deviantart.com/art… since the pose sucked. 

"Sir King, I closed mine eyelids, lest the gems

Should blind my purpose, for I never saw,
Nor shall see, here or elsewhere, till I die,
Not tho' I live three lives of mortal men,
So great a miracle as yonder hilt.
Then with both hands I flung him, wheeling him;
But when I look'd again, behold an arm,
Clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful,
That caught him by the hilt, and brandish'd him
Three times, and drew him under in the mere."

Morte D'Arthur, by Lord Alfred Tennysonz

Parade Colors by Jeremiah Humphries by J-Humphries
Parade Colors by Jeremiah Humphries
I love colorful spaceships. Cold grey is cool and all, but the bright colors evoke medieval heraldry, which is always an interesting idea when combined with space ships. I imagine these  ships belong to the military forces of some noble house.  With color changing paint, they transform into official colors to honor their Lord. When in deep space, they change hue to blend into the background.  Here, a missile frigate powers past the outskirt sprawls of a space fortress. 

Yeah, the color scheme reference isn't too subtle. What can I say? Homeworld is brilliant.

I would like to feature these in my group arsmilitaria.deviantart.com/

Ive sent the requests.

PS: did you use some real castle references for some of them or they are mere fantasy?

I've accepted the requests. Those castles were all done from imagination. I did use a lot of different reference photos for inspiration though.

Yeah. I saw a picture of a castle that was in the middle of a lake, which I thought was pretty cool.
