Jackson is a graduate of Melbourne’s RMIT University, where he studied to be a 3D animator and visual FX artist. It was here, however, that he discovered his true passion lay in drawing and painting.
“I enjoy learning all things scientific: astronomy, psychology and advanced technology. I also love contemporary art forms, such as US comics and graphic novels,” Jackson says.
Other influences include fantasy and sci-fi movies and video games. The Jakarta-based creative currently works as a freelancer, primarily in the fields of trading-card illustrations and book covers.
1 Fire Mage “Part of the Elven Mages set. This was done partly to test out some custom fire brushes. The staff was inspired by an actual fire rod in science labs. I always liked the idea of magic or magical objects that are supported by a little bit of realism.”
2 Earth Mage “I painted this image simply to test my art skills by trying to push the quality as far as possible. In addition, my animation background has meant that I’ve always had a fascination with fancy lighting. Depicting a magical being in a magical forest was a great way to tick both boxes.”
3 Aveyond – Ean’s Quest “This was commissioned by Amaranth Games for the main title screen for one of its games. It’s an eight-bit style PC game that doesn’t contain many details, so the client gave me a degree of freedom in terms of visual design, which was much appreciated!”
