Happy 2020 everyone.
The first draft of my first novel (typed from my notebooks)
I’ll leave it for a couple of weeks before doing the mountainous first revision of character, plot and setting. It feels good doing the first draft but there is so much more rewriting and editing to do.
My inspiration has come from multiple sources but guiltly I have to admit that E.L James of Fifty Shades was the driving force in me creating my first novel. Has anyone seen ‘YOU’ the TV series? Oh my God! That was both unsettling and fascinating to watch, there was like this little war raging in my head about – Oh! What he’s doing is bad – and on the other side I was rooting for the killer/stalker to get the girl. I was conflicted but I have to admit its been the best TV series I’ve seen so far. It’s given me inspiration to build my serial killer character that’s been silently growing over many years of contemplation and reflection.
Happy 2020 everyone.
Ideas for Insect and Arachnid races in WarHammer 40K
Sketches for WarHammer 40K – Orks and Grots (goblins) I jotted down ideas for fleshing out a break-away Grot faction, The Bankers Guild – their only premise is to make money (market makers) and profit from legitimate financial dealings(The Galactic Charter) to more extreme and immoral methods, war for profit (sell weapons and armies to clients) sell extortionate medicines to suffering worlds and seize and annex property due to late and outstanding fees. To the most despicable and darker black markets using embezzlement, fraud, kidnapping and ransom, to raising a private army to collect outstanding debts (To ‘collect’ being an ambiguous term receiving payment using threats and warnings to armed force) The Collector approaches the subject, “I’m here to collect, thats my final warning.” He also charges an appearance fee.

WORK IN PROGRESS…computing…error…error…does not compute…says the Maybot.
The Honest Politician, staring the hero MP and right honourable Harry Charmer. Can you climb the greasy pole? From a lowly backbench MP to the the heights of government, possibly Prime Minister. A past student in Politics and government and watching the current circus on show – I was eager to stick the knife in and begin the scandal. My first attempt at a pixel art piece for the mobile game industry. A mobile game idea, that has been lingering around in my sketchbooks for a very, very long time.
A new RPG game battle design with the hero, blonde knight with lightning mace and steel gauntlet doing an attack animation.

The new Chameleon Swing Icon for the game with some ongoing 3D Cyclops sculpting
Two recent updates this weekend, creating the new Chameleon Swing icon for the game and reworking the cyclops statue still hanging around inside my computer. Still alot of refining and muscle definition to do but it’s taking shape.
Man-At-Arms, this piece is till ongoing, I managed to retopologize the Falcon Helmet, my own redesign inspired and influenced by infantry men-at-arms in 1400's (i.e Agincourt) and Roman legion armour. The body armour is still based on the original He-Man cartoon and recent comics. The suit was partly inspired by Boba Fett’s, Star Wars with gadgets but my design is AI voice activated (similar to Iron Man) which can protect the wearer from explosions, gunfire, chemical biological warfare, nuclear fallout and inhospitable terrain. In the backpack is the power source for the internal computer, the suit, and weapons like the mace fitted in the backpack. I plan to detail the face further with skin pores, eyelashes and facial hair. All the work was carried out in ZBrush and Blender.
Can you guess the likeness/portrait?
This is the recent update for the 3D Camil Chameleon model. I went back into the model to redo and adjust some items, improve textures and render again to give a more polished and striking look to the work. Go to the main page and view the movie and images from there.
Detailing and adding realism to the face sculpt of Man-At-Arms using James Franco as reference. It’s going well but some areas need attention like the ears, neck and fibre mesh for the hair, eyebrows and stubble.
Another Man-At-Arms update!!!
Man@Arms still sculpting away – The armour is taking ages refining and polishing. Hardsurface and ZBrush
Now. I, Skeletor, am Master of the Universe! Yes! Yes… I feel it, the power… fills me. Yes, I feel the universe within me! I am… I am a part of the cosmos! Its energy flows… flows through me. Of what consequence are you now? This planet, these people – They are nothing to me – the universe is power, pure, unstoppable power – and I am that force, I am that power!

Chameleon Swing – Welcome to our booth said the chameleon to the fly Crazy Chameleons with bulging green eyes and blasting out party blowers stun passer-by’s. Win sweets and prizes and the highest scorers of the day take away one-of-a-kind comic strip print.
Having GEEK success in Dreamland. Now its Insomnia 61 with four days of high energy Chameleon Swing fun at the NEC, Birmingham.
We had interest from across the board from indie developers, gamers, families, teens and our target audience kids, 6-13 years (possibly one’s that play Minecraft constantly and want a break) Kids pick up Chameleon Swing quick and fast! And once players “got it”, they wanted to master the tongue swinging mechanic (no easy feat!) and the better they got the more addicted they became until they died to the infamous spiky trees for the 50th time! Ahhhhh! I’m so irritated with this game but I’m determined to get the highest score – just one more go!
A Snack Game (And suitable for a quick toilet break!)
The simple tap and play functionality allows players unlimited go’s without hindering their game play.
Unique Game Features
Quick touch and play game with unlimited go’s
Tongue swinging mechanic with momentum and flow
Unique cartoon characters with a handrawn quality and backstory
There is always added polish needed to a game and Chameleon Swing is no exception. The list is long, but from the ample feedback we received at Insomnia 61 we can’t wait to delve back into the characters, the stories, and GameMaker to build the game assets.
If you havant download the game for the Android do so free at the link below – Provide your email and we will keep you informed of future Chameleon Swing updates, especially for the iphones(which will happen!). Thank you and enjoy the game.

Hi All! FireTwin will soon be showing our game Chameleon Swing at Insomnia61 in Birmingham, UK. If your there pop by say hello, play our game get a high score and win prizes!!! Before this I have uploaded some images of our new 3D Cam Chameleon sculpt – it was fun to do, but the rendering part was tedious and ongoing, but for now I am please with the current passes until I review it in a couple of days.
Hi All! Here is an outline of myself (how I’m feeling!) and undertaking Cory Huff’s art course, The Abundant Artist – lets see what happens (gulp!)
My name is Kier Eyles and I’m an artist based in the UK. I have the background and techniques in drawing, fine art, live art, filmmaking, 2D & 3D animation and game art, but now I need to promote, market and sell biro drawings effectively. I’m a bit of a hybrid artist with my attention currently focused on Chameleon Swing, a 2D mobile game drawn in biros and playable for the Android (www.firetwin.com + www.kiereyles.com ), and a 3D digital sculptor using Blender and ZBrush.
But the Work I find the most enjoyable, uneasy and more difficult to share with others is my fine art biro drawings – this is the work I would like to brand, promote and sell. Currently I have no sales at the moment because I have this question, who would buy it? It’s possibly too personal, weird and strange (or people call too stylised?) so finding my market and selling would be a huge plus!
I’ve started to create a new body of biro work, 8 pieces focused on the human form both mental and physical which I’m hoping to submit 3 for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in June, but also I want to sell, brand and promote the work
The two images above are part of an eight part series, LoveHate and PowerTrip – biro on A4 paper
And the background for these pieces can be seen in my behance portfolio – https://www.behance.net/gallery/2536011/Portfolio
It feels good to get this all out there!
