House of Dreams - WIP4 by Phaeton99

I have been staring at this plan sporadically for the last few hours, trying to make heads and tails of this intricate drawing which is...


Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

Favourite genre of music: You know those guys with the mohawks and weird piercings? Those guys. Well, and a lot of others, but mainly those.

Favourite style of art: Bauhaus & Constructivism.

Skin of choice: Chitinous exoskeleton.

Personal Quote: While people might die for their faith, they will murder for their religion.
Personally I am a completely non-religious humanist, but I wish a hearty Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.

I know you think I'm a bit late, since for a lot of the world Easter was this past weekend, but I live in a country where Easter is celebrated based on the Julian rather than Gregorian Calendar, which means this year Easter comes on the 12th.

Oh, and while I'm at it, Happy Passover for those of Jewish faith.

But moving on to the primary reason for this post, I bet you are wondering why I haven't posted anything since October of last year.
Well, let me tell you it's been a gruelling six months. Nothing bad per se happened to me directly, but a lot of bad stuff happened to my loved ones, culminating in my mother being seriously injured in a car accident in February.
As a consequence, I spent the last few months in a support/ primary caregiver position, which meant all my free time evaporated.

However, I did manage to work a number of projects of which I am very pleased, including two books already published and a Comic book which is to leave the press in a couple of days.

First off, I know this might come as a surprise, but I've illustrated a children's book for a friend of mine, Mari Arsenie, named "The Adventures of Laslo the Dawrf".
Let me tell you, it was a surprise for me as well, since I'm more adept at drawing artillery pieces than dwarves, but there you have it. The artwork, by the way, can be found here:

Secondly, it is exactly artillery pieces I drew, since I illustrated a non-fiction book about the Focsani-Namoloasa-Galati Fortified Region (Also known as the Sereth Line).
This is the second book I illustrated for the Romanian Military museum, the first one being about Austro Hungarian artillery, waaay back in 2011.

 Here are the actual drawings, all nine of them:

Finally, the one I am most proud of, I have been asked by the good folks over at Mythopoeia to make a few drawings to accompany the second issue of their dieselpunk comic book, Skies of Fire.

Edit, 21.04.15: The Kickstarter of the second issue is currently active! Help us bring this comic to print and earn rewards in the process. If the Kickstarter makes it to 12k you will also get postcards drawn by me of some of the ships in the comic.

Speaking of which, Here is a poster I drew which so hows some of the ship types from this world and will make an appearance in the codex of the second issue as well as make a nifty wall decoration:

Just saw that Imperial Skies, complete with your super-swick artwork, is up on Kickstarter!  Will I be supporting it?  Why yes, I will.  I know none of the money goes to you at this point, but still.  Point of pride, and a job well done!

Thank you! I really did a lot of artwork for Imperial Skies and I'm quite proud of it, so, by all means, support the game if you find it interesting!

 And I do think some of the money raised will eventually get to me anyway, because this isn't the only project Robin is doing and he just asked me to provide artwork for them as well.

I like the style of a lot of your stuff in general.  Reminds me of some of more colourful history books or even in some cases something you find in Osprey Books.

Thanks! Some of my drawings are indeed for non-fiction history magazines, so the Osprey comparison is apt, especially since I grew up with a lot of their stuff. Glad you like my work!

After going through your awesome "Inner Space" artwork for the Nth time, I really have to ask; Is there a comic/book you have made about it that I have just missed the link to?
I am really interested in the stuff you have shown.

Well, it is going to be a comic book, but right now it's still very much at the advanced concept stage. I know roughly what the story is going to be, but I'm still trying to work out what the world looks like. What gets posted to DA is only the tip of the iceberg - for every drawing I post there are 10-15 that stay in my sketchbooks, but it is getting there, if somewhat slower than I'd like.

Also, I am occasionally switching gears between working on Inner Space and working on Shadowless, which is on a much more advanced stage - both the concept and stories are pretty much done and I need to get around to drawing actual pages, but real world intervened with a really crappy 2014 and 2015 which left me scrambling from one crisis to the next on top of my day job which already takes waaay too much of my time.
The latest crisis was last week when I had to replace both my computer and smartphone a few days the one from the other...

So yeah, I'm sorry it's taking so long, but please bear with me. I'm sure the result will be worth the wait.
