These were done for Blackwyrm Publishing for a Hero Games supplement that became available at Gencon:

These were super-fun to draw, but the Tyrax alien designs were my favorites. I have a soft spot for alien design work, and while I wanted the critters to give the "feel" of Xenomorphs and Tyranids, I wanted them to look like neither. I think I pulled it off, but let me know what you guys think. :)
Cheers, Alex

Wow! You certainly pulled out all the stops on those pieces. I can really see the tyranid influence in the last couple of pictures but there was certainly enough to differentiate them from just tyranid knock offs. Fantastic work as always.

Gorgeous work. I love how the men and women look like men and women. Not over beefy bro's from Venice Beach or a girl who needed her spine adjusted and ribs removed. Good stuff senior!

Thanks guys! :)

Here's one of my latest pieces for Vigilance press. I know it will get chopped up by the way this site posts images so I'm including a link to the image as well:

Nice, very nice. Can you say who the last two characters are?

Thanks guys!

Dsumner: The two characters are Mr Block, one of the METAs characters, created by a participant contributor (they paid a fee to have their character published and professionally illustrated - all the METAs characters will be appearing in supplements published by Vigilance Press) and Warchild, a character written up, but with no stats or description. I was told to just have fun with him, and I DID! I imagined him as a basic "weaponmaster" style character - sort of Deadpool plus Nightwing.

Here's the art for Mr Block:

(I just realized I hadn't posted him).

Warchild (which I created for the META villains article), is a semi sympathetic villain who's ex-military turned rights activist who was framed during an incident that also gave him metahuman powers.

He's a Native American, which btw is why I love Alex's design on it. It's not all feathers and buckskin or thunderbirds...it's a solid awesome looking costume and look for a guy who's ethnicity is very important to him, but unlike many other comic characters it doesn't need to be super obvious and mono-themed.

He's not statted up, he's one of some examples of creating villains to fit themes and settings but who knows? Now that he looks awesome maybe we can convince James (VP's head) to work him into somewhere. :)

No fair ganging up on me, guys. :shock:

Alex, just checking to see if there's anything else you're working on that we should be on the lookout for?

Alex has been having some computer problems lately, which explains his absence here on the forums.

I hope he doesn't mind, but I thought I'd go ahead and show this off here. This is something he just turned in for us, the cover art for Six Gun, an upcoming Due Vigilance project for Vigilance Press.

He also contributed the cover art and some interior art for our just-released "Due Vigilance: Black Chapter" for Mutants and Masterminds. :)

That looks awesome. I'd love to see it in full color.

Denise Jones is working on the color, and you can keep up to date with all the latest Vigilance Press happenings by tuning in to our website: www.vigilancepress.com or by friending me on facebook or Google+ ! I'm not sure if dumping art colored by someone else in Alex's thread really feels "Right" to me, so I'll stick with sharing stuff here that's directly his work, and his work alone. I hope he doesn't mind. :)

Speaking of which, we just opened a new "Elements of Ruin" gallery on the Vigilance Press website, and we're featuring four new pieces from the upcoming project by Alex in that gallery. Here's one of them!

Enjoy! :)
