Darran began drawing at an early age and was influenced by the covers of the Fighting Fantasy books. In the late 90s he travelled to New Zealand and became a prosthetic artist, working for Weta Workshop on The Lord Of The Rings films.
“During this time I learnt loads from the genius team who work there,” says Darran. “I was even allowed to submit several pieces of conceptual art and the team were very encouraging.
In recent years he has worked as a freelance artist, providing images for greeting cards. His ultimate aim is to become a storybook and fantasy artist.
Centaur Guard “After scanning in the pencils, I coloured the image up and mixed the colours using my trusty Blur tool in Photoshop.”
Centaur Head Concept “Part of a collection of concepts I created and sent into Richard Taylor at Weta Workshop, whom I worked for many moons ago.”
Beast in the Storm “This image started life several years ago as a concept sketch drawn in watercolours and pencil. I scanned the image in, striped out the background and using the Blur tool mixed the pencil colours together. After playing around with the colour levels I painted in a background, again using the Blur tool to create the swirls.”
