Great to watch Nik. I noticed the Bowie 'Man who fell to Earth' picture & some of those EofF fairies have quite Bowie-esque hair so I'm guessing he's an influence. Fantastic work - looking forward to the new stuff too.

Thanks JustM. You got the Bowie influence right. When I was younger I thought his music was just so far ahead of everything else. Plus early on he looked like a Science Fiction or comicbook character come to life. I always wanted hair like his. Now I just want hair!

Here's the Christopher Eccleston painting I mentioned before. I literally finished it minutes ago.

Wow it's been a while since I last posted here. Time goes by so fast.
I have been keeping busy though. Here's some commissioned Marvel 70th and X-Men Archives AP's that I did.

I was asked to recreate a cover by Brian Stelfreeze for this one.




Here's my pencil preliminary sketch for the above one.


Here's the most recent one I did. Managed to get a nice orangey glow on this one.

Thanks Hammer. The theme was suggested by the buyer. I found Patrick McGoohan the hardest person to get a likeness of.

Here's a large painted commission of Sapphire and Steele I just finished.

I've got this up on Ebay at the moment. It's an Avengers issue 1, 2nd print blank variant cover comic. I've painted a scene on the front featuring Thanos and friends and a black and white line drawing on the back as the back cover was also blank. It's on Ebay HERE if you'd like to bid on it. I think the starting bid is very reasonable considering how much work went into it and how long it took.

Reasonable? That starting bid is a steal.

It amazes me what you can do on those covers.

Great work NIK. Those are gorgeous pieces of art. If you don't mind me saying, they reminde me of the great Jim Starlin.

Thanks Chris, the surface wasn't too bad on this one.
Thanks Ingrid!
Thanks Boldlygone. I wouldn't compare myself to the great Jim Starlin but his 1970s work on Warlock and Thanos certainly was the inspiration for this piece.
