'The Ranger' or 'Wild Warrior' as more commonly known by the peasant folk, is a solitary warrior willingly confined to the wilds. Lightly armoured and equipped with a Yari Spear, The Ranger patrols the borders of the Imperial Lands serving as its eyes and ears in times of war and peace. Ever dedicated to the protection of the people and to the Emperor, the Ranger cuts off all ties with family and friends and relinquishes all worldly possessions as a token of their undying commitment to the homeland. Rarely is a Ranger ever seen or recognized, as their humble appearance often misleads people to believe they're common Ashigaru (peasant foot soldiers) or wandering Ronin. But looks in this case are profoundly misleading as their skill in battle are unmatched by even the most expert Samurai swordsman, making them the most formidable warriors the Empire has to offer. #characterdesign#samurai#samurai_concept#warrior#bushido#fantasyart#fantasywarrior#katana#ronin#japan#ranger#watercolours#irishillustrator#irishillustration#bcfe_illustration#bcfeillustration#illustratorsireland

Some wonky watercolour bus doodles 🎨 ... I'm a sucker for detail so I set myself a challenge on my commute to college to see how few lines I could use and just let it be messy, particularly fond of how the fella in red jacket and glasses turned out 👓#bcfeillustration#illustration
Just realized I never posted this up here. Whoops? 😂
We had to design our own Eustace Tilley New Yorker cover as part of a project in college. This was the first ever completely-digital piece I've done for an assignment so I was a little nervous but I actually love how it turned out.
