Melakim by Zephyri
belated birthday present for my dearest pal and art/story co conspirator,AngelaSasser. Hope you had a great one hun, I value your constant support and chats more than you'll know. 

If you'd like to see where I got the inspiration for this awesome character design, go check out some of the concept roughs Ang did for her: 

SoE Melakim Fahre Tattoo Variations by AngelaSasser

Also inspired by the amazing sage words and art of Dave Rapoza's Bog Witch tutorial on gumroad. The amount of personal info Rapoza gives out in it is great, well worth the measly few dollars he asks for it: I rather like the animation still feel this image has, which was totally not what I intended. 
Emergence by Zephyri
A personal piece I started some years back, found in my piles of stuff and decided to try out some new techniques on to finish. Not up to what I can do these days, I don't think, but I figured some folks might enjoy it, so it gets a post!

Mixed media (watercolour, pencils, acrylic) Size is abooout 12 inches by 8, give or take. 
I'm sorry I couldn't... by Zephyri
I'm sorry I couldn't...
More sketches for my Iain McCaig class. I cannot, caaaannnot stress how amazing this is for me. I'm finally just making images for myself. Not to be popular or because I think they'll work in my portfolio. This... this is amazing. This one's just a rough sketch neatened up and flat coloured, but I rather like the charm of it like that. 

Also, go watch Dave Rapoza's Level up and One Fantastic Week appearances on youtube, because the guy knows his shit and is really inspiring. 

(reuploading as last version got eaten by the system somehow, apologies if you're seeing this twice!)
Smart School week 1-2 sketches by Zephyri
Smart School week 1-2 sketches
Continuing with Smart School stuff, I've been on a roll this last week with sketching. After an inspiring first live class with Iain McCaig (and sitting in on Rebecca Guay's equally inspiring class),  I'd been slightly scared of paper and pencil for a long while for anything meaningful, but I'm slowly finding my vibe again! Also helped finding a passion for linking music to characters, something I've not done in a long while. If you're so inclined, youtube Dropkick Murphys and Rose Tattoo for the soundtrack to these sketches :D 

Sketches for Eideann's world, I'm finally fleshing out her mentor, Saul, and taken a first crack at the pirate lord, Kalam, who ends up as her lover and protector after Saul's untimely death. Still lots more to flesh out, but I'm actually genuinely excited with taking this forward! *dances*

Mix of digital and pencil. Bottom Right sketch was based on this great stock photo from LinzStock

There's not much to tell about me. I'm a full time concept artist working in Warwick, UK, and I dig old, silver haired, evil men, voluptuous ladies and tentacles. I work mostly in photoshop and in watercolour and pencils.

Minor New Year old art sale!

EDIT: This past week my other half was muscled out of his job by some really underhanded management tactics, which means that my income is now the only thing keeping us going. I'm cutting the prices of these prints and paintings just to get rid of them at this point and maybe pay for the couple of things left outstanding for us when he lost his job.

Depending on how things go, I may open up the possibility of commissions too later down the line, but I'll update my journal if I decide to do that.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SHIPPING WILL BE EXTRA -  I won't be shipping these myself, so need to confirm shipping costs -  they are being shipped from within the US. Please note me if you are interested in any of these pieces, and I will be able to give you a final cost including shipping!

Framed Paintings by Zephyri   Prints by Zephyri

First up I have two original framed paintings, depicting air and water elementals. I'm looking for $50 each or $80 for the pair. They are watercolour on illustration board, and were custom framed to fit their unusual size. They measure 6.5 x 12.5 inches including the frame. Original painting is appx 3 x  9 inches.

Paintings on da:

They are numbered prints of a run of 100, Devil Take Her and Church of the Black Rose are both signed by the artist on the print itself.

Hello, I just saw you Oatley Academy post that you posted 2 years ago. Can you please tell me more about the course, (like a couple of specific things that you found extremely useful or learned) I am interested in all areas of digital art for games and I wish to know if the course could help me :)
Thank you!!

Hi, I recently made a 3D model based off of your work Ember do you mind if I post it on deviant art?
Zephyri Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Hey! As long as there's a link back to the original concept here that's fine. Same goes if you post it anywhere else. Thanks for letting me know!

Awesome gallery!

Hi I was wondering if I could please post these artworks:………

on my tumblr blog as creative writing prompts? I would credit you and post a link to your deviantart.

Hey :) I have no problem with the latter two (Morning winds and the Spitpaint one). I'd have to ask that you don't use Whaler Girls, as I have a large world building project that includes writing based on that image and others in my gallery, so it would be shooting myself in the foot a little to allow others to write around it too. But go for it with the others, I appreciate you asking. 
Allons-yEveryone Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Student Writer
That's alright, I completely understand. Thanks (:
