Hi I’m Jamie!
A fantasy artist with over a decade of experience
I’m the artist behind The Noble Artist. I’ve been working as a professional fantasy artist since 2010. I love my job, every day is a new adventure into awesome worlds, with fantastical creatures and magical characters.
I’m fortunate enough to have worked on some amazing projects, from the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay games to League of Legends, Gloomhaven and Thunderstone Quest. I’ve also had the pleasure of working alongside some amazing fantasy authors including Ed Greenwood and Richard A Knaak.
I’m always excited about the next fantasy project. Whether it’s a book cover, board game, a tabletop RPG or worldbuilding artwork for your fantasy setting. If you’re interested in working with me, drop me a line to firstname.lastname@example.org or follow these links to a form to brief me about your project.
Scott Wisely – The Inquisitive GoblinUsing The Noble Artist for our website artwork was an absolute dream, we gave a basic idea and let him free to Express, the artwork that came back was far beyond what we could have expected.
I thought it might be a good idea to show you a little bit about what I do. As an digital artist I work in primarily in Adobe Photoshop, using it like a canvas and a paint-set. It’s not a million miles away from using traditional materials, painting strokes onto the canvas with a stylus rather than a paintbrush.
You can see from the video of the pirate, I start with a black and white sketch and begin to refine it before adding all the colour and polish.
An example of how fantasy art is made
Below I’ve placed the final piece side by side with a video that shows the various sketch stages a piece goes through before it’s finally complete.
A quick summary of the fantasy illustration process
- I receive the brief from the client, and discuss if needed
- I tend to start with a very loose composition sketch
- I show this to the client at this early stage to make sure any major changes are made before too much detail goes in
- I take the sketch to a more rendered black and white version
- Another round of feedback for minor tweaks
- I begin to colour the illustration and finish
- The client has a final round of feedback to check for any minor colour and detail tweaks
- Illustration complete!
If you need some more detail about what I do, or would like to discuss a brief, I’m always happy to help.
