Unsettling Skies


This is the background I made for ‘Girl From Another Planet‘… I made it with five seperate sky photos, all pretty spectacular in their own right (all mine, of course), but, combined, and with a bit of brush-work, they are in a whole new realm of spectacular! I’ve done a bit more work to it since using it behind my interplanetary girl (:



The magnificent Themysciran godslayer is finished… thanks to two days off work sick, giving me time to do hours and hours of crazed, RSI-inducing painting! I’m pretty pleased with this, and still not done with painting this fabulous character (:

The fabulous Themysciran Princess continues to evolve (:

Godslayer WIP 2


One of my favourite scenes in the movie… Diana has just climbed the ladder into no-man’s land and is about to start her run at the German trenches. I adore all the meanings and symbolisms in this scene… she’s just cast off her disguise as a ‘normal’ woman, making her debut onto the stage of the ‘normal’ world of warring, idiot males… stunning the crap out of all the nearby, ‘normal’ males… she’s climbed into seemingly certain death… the scene as she climbs the ladder is a stunner, her rising into her true place… now she’s feeling the rightness of her decision, and beginning to bound into fabulous, gorgeous action… leaving all the ‘strong’ men floundering in her wake, and having to follow her as she clears the way. Love it to bits!

Godslayer WIP

Brave, young, naieve, idealistic Diana, thinks her sword is the Godslayer… she doesn’t, yet, realise… she is the Godslayer (:


No… but it’s what I came here to do


Finished! Awesome Diana of Themyscira, choosing to climb into no-mans land, against staggering odds, in order to save some people she’s never met (:
