Happy New Year 2016!

This is for all my readers, and especially for those who like and enjoy my Badlands series of stories. It's because of you that what I'd thought would be a one-off tale has now become nine, and many more, I hope, to come. 

Here, as I visualise them, are the knight, the demon, and the beast. Painted with acrylic on wood, and because it's on wood, you can see the grain so clearly. 

This is a scan, by the way, not a photograph. I tried photographing it several times but the scan was always clearer. 

Incidentally, I discovered naked women are a lot harder to paint than I'd imagined. Even if they're red demon women with horns, wings and tail. Oh well.

I'm not saying this is the final, definitive depiction of these three. You may well have your own vision of what they look like, and you're more than welcome not just to that visualisation, but to share it with me and anyone else.

Happy New Year.


  1. Naked women are not that hard to paint. The trick is to get them to stand still.
