Although I'm sure the amount of people thinking 'I wonder what Dark Mechanic is up to' is virtually nil, I thought I'd say whats going on now, as I'm not too active on my websites at the moment.
I do a lot of work that I'm either not allowed to show right now, or work that isn't really worth showing (storyboards and the like), which doesn't leave a lot of time for any personal, or fun work. My process for making art is a bit more convoluted than most digital artists I imagine, so even if I just want to do a fun Space Marine for instance, that would still probably take a day.
What I can say is that I'm currently working for Mutant Year Zero, a post-apocalyptic roleplaying game, which will be a lot of work to show in the pipeline. I'll also be working on a new tabletop game, called Far Shores, so would be in charge of pretty much everything art related there. I'm looking forward to trying to take that in a new direction, away from the standard digital painted affair you see with these games nowadays. There may be also some more Agents work in the pipeline, not sure what form that would take yet.
I'm also working on 2 of my own comic scripts, for that I'm trying to push away from the super-hero thing and make something intelligent, interesting and overall, fresh. Although thats coming on slow, what I have I like, so look forward to showing that at some point. Ones a Sci-fi, ones a Fantasy.
I have lots of things I want to do, like redoing the Primarch series (as a kind of see how much I progressed kind of thing), a Rogue Trader gallery, and also I planned a load of book covers as homage for the late Iain M. Banks, whose science fiction is a big influence on me. And I guess I should really do some new illustrations based on nothing other than my own imagination, because it's been 3 years since the last one.
Oh, and I'm trying to get the ball rolling on redoing my website, so it's actually up to date and not 5 years old.
So I'm busy, which is good, but it leaves zero time for anything I would like to do for myself, which is sad face. I would also like to get better as an artist at some point. Not sure I'll ever have time for that, maybe by 2030?.
So there you go, hope to be showing you new work at some point in the future, don't write me off till then!
