New piece I started in the spring, then work got all busy and I didn’t have time to finish it up til now. In this piece I wanted to explore an alternate meaning of the word ‘antichrist’ and as something not necessarily evil, but something the represents femininity and nature as opposed to the masculine Christ and the man made world he represents. She can also be viewed as a fertility goddess of pagan religions long since past who were deemed heretical by early Christians.

OPEN BLED 2014 Nikol King
New piece based on Dune. In the book (and movie) Open Bled referred to the pure open desert where the largest sandworms thrived. Deified as ‘Shai-Hulud’ or Old Man of The Desert it was venerated as a god beast by the Fremen. Pen and Ink and digital coloring and vector graphics.
Leviathan 2014 Nikol King
Been working on this piece the last week or so and it is based on some ideas I’ve been messing around with for awhile in my sketchbook. The ship was a pain to get to be exactly how I wanted it, but once I got it in place everything came along swimmingly (heh heh). Pen and ink and colored digitally.
