Legends of Ceredyn

This blog post is about a personal project of mine. The previous posts about the High Council, the Bear Storm Guard and my avatar, the Ferret Knight, all are part of a big project: the Legends of Ceredyn. It’s about a kingdom inhabited by anthropomorphic animals that gets invaded by a terrible horde. Our hero is a ferret named Furydon the Knight. He is send out to ask the High King and his council for help. Needless to say,  it’s a journey full of dangerous and evil perils!

The story is still very young, very new and early in development and will take many months to complete. But if you are as excited as me about strange lands with heroic animals, then stay tuned, because I will keep you updated on this project!

Here is a teaser: To the rescue! Our cat companion is about to become a meal for the swamp monster!

Kudos to the manufacturer though…

Macabre discovery in a cooling chamber of a giant abandoned space ship. The poor guy got trapped so long ago that all that is left of him are bones wrapped in a still functioning bio suit.

Deep space travel, it’s not for the faint-hearted…

We need more humans!

Recently I got two portfolio reviews and the verdict was that there were too few humans.  True, true. Due to my work on the Ferret story, which is a complete anthropomorphic animal story, I tend to neglect human beings a bit. So, time to diversify!

And don’t forget: if you have questions or remarks, feel free to drop a line.


The High Council

Wow, time flies! It has been too long since my last blog post. Never knew that the High Council would take me so long to finish, and I’m still quite unhappy about it. The thing is, when spending so long on one piece, you loose your ability to see mistakes. Yet everything I wanted to be in the picture is there: the diffuse dusty light int the back, the King vulture in his regal attire, the menacing throne, the council looking at our ferret knight (still haven’t figured out his name) and keeping their distance … yet … I don’t know. It’s such a struggle sometimes to illustrate the image that is perfect in your mind. They often turn out so flawed in reality.
There is a story in all my ferret illustrations, but hush, it’s still a secret :)

Great! I’ve found a good print-on-demand shop: you can now get a print of my work via INPRNT

If you spotted a personal work on my portfolio that is not yet on the shop, drop me a line and I’ll put it there. Sadly commissioned works cannot be made available :/
For now only three works are for sale, but more to come!

Here’s one of the available prints:
