An author of Speculative Fiction, speculates about fiction.

Blog Comp Prize!

Here we are! It’s taken a little longer than  anticipated since I didn’t realise that I’d forgotten how to use Photoshop, but it’s finally here.

Firstly, thanks again to Shea, Lizzie and Aggy for their excellent ideas. They certainly had me entertained and stretching my drawing muscles; something I haven’t done for far too long. For those of you just dropping in, you can find the competition post HERE.

While they’re off reading the other post, here’s a teaser to set you off. The line art:

An battle across monochrome

…now you’re all caught up…

As you can see, I decided to do the three suggestions all in one as a movie-esque poster. I think it’s worked pretty well. The next competition should probably be for someone to write a synopsis for this movie, linking all the odd elements into one narrative. With Cthulhu, Zombies, a Mongolian Death Worm AND an immortal Templar Knight, I think it’s a sure-fire blockbuster! Answers on a postcard, kiddies!

But anyway, here’s the final piece. Drum roll, please!


Shea, Lizzie and Aggy, I hope you like it! Thanks for all your help and support throughout 😀

Thanks for reading.

    • Thanks, Shea. Glad you like it. I had loads of fun doing it. I had to actually research the Death Worm before I drew it. Luckily no-one’s really seen one reliably so I just went with it. I’m pretty chuffed with it, anyway. It’s made me wonder whether I should do a new book cover for Not Before Bed 😀
