Oh what a coincidence! Just wanted to address this issue...
The reason I'm not posting here (and anywhere else) is this:
Since the last spring I've been in touch with the guys at 343 Industries
and Egmont Publishing
, working on a 'secret' project alongside with some other artists. If you unaware of Halo franchise, it's a series of videogames expanded later into other media like books, comics, toys, animation an so on.Halo: Mythos
is a comprehensive, illustrated guide to the Halo universe, charting humanity's battles against alien forces of the Covenant, Forerunners, and the Flood. Even if you aren't into games, Halo is a very well written sci-fi universe with interesting characters and story arcs.
The job was to depict some of the iconic characters and dramatic events. Each artist worked on his own chapter, illustrating events from the specific time period. All I can say is that I'm extremely happy with the results. I've adopted some new techniques and pushed myself to the limit so expect some surprises.
The only catch is that the book is set to release in October 2016 so you won't see anything soon.
But that's not all!
If you're into numbers, here is a comparison of my 2014 and 2015 work folders:
In 2015 I've got almost two times more data with 5k+ files and 300 folders and these are just work files (my reference and photo collections settle on another drives). And it's not just Halo...
I thought I could retire now and lay down on sunny beach with hot girls around...
BUT as I read your replies on my previous post
I've got surprised how many people are still there. And most important, I saw how lucky I am to have such a fantastic readership... even if I'm not posting fanart/pinup/nudes on a daily basis!
