Senior concept artist and designer for major companies in the video-game and media industries since 1996, from hometown of London, UK to the USA, Australia, Hong Kong and SE Asia, covered a wide range of material from the ironclad mythologies of Warhammer, Hellfire and Might & Magic, cult racing classic Re-Volt, Marvel superhero's, the cartoon worlds of Spongebob Squarepants, Avatar and Jimmy Neutron. A six year break from the industry gave just enough time to complete personal book project, Salsa Invertebraxa, which was awarded Best Art in Comics at the 9th @$$IE AWARDS, AICN Comics and nominated by the Aurealis Awards for best graphic novel 2012.

AT-AT Re-designs by m0zch0ps
AT-AT Re-designs
Just a few fun re-jigs of the classic AT-AT Imperial all terrain transport, - of course, it's an icon of the 20th Century and nothing will change that, certainly not my tinkerings - but it was always bugging me how they were so easy to defeat i.e trip over with the shoelaces gag -  so I've done some brief sketches - tried to stay true to the classic lines, the intimidating silhouette, the animal-resemblance, the rugged practical machinery, the imperial aesthetics, all while addressing it's errant stability, (there are 6-leg variations for more all-terrain versatility) cranking up those limited firepower angles, especially on the soft underbelly where those pesky jedi's play, and if you look closely there's a couple of places where troop deployment has been tackled, it's still a work in progress though.

Wacky Arms Races by m0zch0ps
Wacky Arms Races
I've digitally spruced up a very old painting, (oil on board - 1995), it's a parody of the Warner Brothers 'Wacky Races' cartoon of the 70's but with an arms race theme to it (of course) - so all the usual kerazy souped-up whizz-bang hot-rodded bat-winged flying machines that after-school cartoons of that era delighted in.
Th..tha.th..th...thats all folks......until the next one

Prophets of the Ghost Ants - Dranverite Army
Just had some very good advice over on FB on how to improve this one, the previous version was a bit too busy and saturated in the wrong places, - here's the new version.

Attack of the Moon Roaches (New Version)
I wanted to revisit this pic and add a touch of colour, (the original verison is here - m0zch0ps.deviantart.com/art/At…  - which definitely conveys the night time atmosphere as it is in the book) 
Thoughts and comparisons are welcome,

Angkor Thom by m0zch0ps
Angkor Thom
My very first watercolour painting since uni, (that's only about 21 years!). Despite the trepidation (the medium requires precision planning and takes few prisoners) this was a lot of fun, more than I expected, so I'll be tackling more crumbling stony Khmer Gods and Demons in the next few days.

Abandon (Heroes of Might and Magic VII) by m0zch0ps
Abandon (Heroes of Might and Magic VII)
One of the characters from previous versions of the game is revitalized for VII, but alas was abandoned in favour of a total overhaul. One of the downsides to the biz (like everything) is having your work curling up friendless on the editing floor, so its good to grow a nice leathery hardened carapace to weather these slights :) and of course you get to re-arrange your own preferred version, like this one.

Here's the blinged upgrade to the previous HoMMVII character, another joint work between Leroy Van Vliet and I.
All the best :)

The final eBook file for Prophets of the Ghost Ants is very close to going live, exciting times! Which prompts me to upload some more work in progress, here are some of the colour roughs of the cover, the map of the immediate geography of the area showing the various ant tribes and some other scenes from the book.
The moonlit scene half way down was partly a nod to a scene painted by one of my favorite concept artists, who worked on the biggest sci-fi series of them, any ideas who that might be? :)

It's an amazing movie, I think it should be re-released. The eighties were maybe a bit too early for its moment in the spotlight.

If you liked the movie, you will looooove the manga, wich is even more deeper. Graphics are amazing and story lines much more expanded!
Indeed it's the only manga I never read and I found it awesome!

Now THATS how you do an illustrated ebook. Fantastic work, I hope it gets the praise it deserves. It's an inspiration.

Thanks. Maybe I have the market cornered at the moment, but there are some supreme artists out there, just a question of time before there's a whole slew of amazing insect art (for some reason the sculpture/ jewellery scene already boasts a lot of invertebrate specialists)
