++++++++++++++++++++++

This one was done in March 2015, and is another multi-fold cover that features Kor'sarro Khan and co. taking out some trashy Chaos Cultists. Aside from the usual keeping as true to the miniatures as possible (a much enforced directive from GW), I've been able to sneak in my own ideas and design suggestions here and there :)

The brief was to show a cultist warband being run over by White Scar riders, so I thought it would have been nice to view the action from the perspective of a cultist member and have their last stand/"tactical retreat" framed against the setting sun. The pillar in the middle has my personal 'tribute' to the great people at BL that I've had the pleasure of working with over the past few years. :) The 'meta narrative' is kinda dedicated to you, you know who you are!

XCOM: DEEP RISING Laser Pistol by ukitakumuki
XCOM: DEEP RISING Laser Pistol
In early 2010, Strategycore.co.uk approached me to help create art for an XCOM tribute project they had brewing. One does not say no to any of that.
Although I turned down the offer to do the sequential art given other commitments at the time, I settled on the concept art phase, which proved to be a delightful experience.
The greatest challenge was to re-imagine the original pixel art into a more tangible form, adding my own preferences for functionality while attempting to honour the aesthetic read of the originals.

5 years on, Olav and Pedro, the crazy geniuses who hired me, have come through with that vision- a multi-media comic with a gorgeous presentation: comic.strategycore.co.uk/#!/
Your passion inspires me..!

About time for my annual journal update..! orz

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 14, 2014, 7:54 AM
Hope everyone's been keeping well!

I realise over the years I've gotten increasingly shite at managing my DA 'routine'. Quite frankly I find myself balacing my time with my client work, teaching endeavour(which is turning out to be a really fulfilling new chapter in life) and working on side projects that I actually find it increasingly difficult to sit down and respond to comments here like I used to. Its always been a thing of mine to respond as much as possible and I still aspire to do so when I can, but I guess I'm in a pretty frantic pace of life at the moment. And I hope that my lack of replies do not come off as apathy or worse. I enjoy reading all the comments and critique and am thankful for your time in letting me know how you feel about the work in general. Especially for my work on hardcore IP like 40K... the level of 'fangasm' as I call it never ceases to blow my mind time and again. You guys always light that fire under my ass and I hope in my own way I never let you down.

As such, I hope that its a bit more obvious that when it comes to posting work I've done, I've always put more emphasis into the description section-- elaborating on my thoughts and process to share as much of my personal experience in art as possible for those of you who are more keen to know. To my mind, its the best I can do to make up for not being able to respond personally to your often colourful commentary. :p

I'm very thankful for all the support over the past decade here on DA(wow has it been that long... u_u), so much wouldn't have happened without it, and I can't wait to share the stuff I've been working on the side in greater detail, soon enough. :)


Have a great weekend!
Kai

Hey There!! 

I was wondering if I could sell prints of your artwork in my local area of Australia.

I can pay a 20% commission at no risk to you.
