Girlie vs the Zombies by Colourbrand
Girlie vs the Zombies


Not the brightest of evil things but their nature and numbers are the stuff that terrifies almost everyone; the fact these things have no leader, no social structure, are relentless, possess a pack mentality, cannot be tamed, reasoned, or bargained with, and are void of humanity; the army of the Undead.

The Zombies look for human brains to feast on, human flesh to consume, and scouring this apocalyptic land with bloodlust, seeking fresh meat – living human victims in other words. 

A group seem to have found prey; a young pretty lass wearing a delightful flowery dress with modest shoes. She looks doomed.

However, she is anything but; she come ready with a pulse carbine with a clip on 20MM grenade launcher. She raises her weapons and smiles. 

Zombies, she thought, not the brightest of evil things…




This is a gift to a great friend (and tis Halloween!!) :iconseasiderock: who has been a powerful source of inspiration and support of my work here on DA.

I did this based on exchanged ideas and thoughts; :iconseasiderock: loves zombie plots, apocalyptic ideas, and humour among other factors. 

So I depicted the classic zombie apocalypse, but the centre of the piece I wanted someone who is courageous, daring, but not ridiculous, absurd, PC, or other such nonsense; also wanted to hone my people skills more.

The character is a girle and proud – and why not? We are who we are and should be that. 

:thumbsup: :iconseasiderock:

Interstellar Exploration by Colourbrand
Interstellar Exploration
"Earth Base, this is Kentares, we have just passed Saturn; people, you should see how splendid this place looks...its magnificent...we are now going for a five second burn of the main engine to sling us around...its going to be something; Kentares out."


This was inspired by the trailer and stills for Christopher Nolan's Sci-fi soon to be seen epic Interstellar.

Now the plot sounds routine, albeit sketchy, but its the typical story of man off to save humanity by finding a new home and hope.

In ways it sounds like The Outer Limits story Worlds Apart. I hope the film is a welcoming breath of space in exploration, the glory of the stars, and the notion humanity can go far and not descend into kaboom-fests that too many space films are becoming. I hope its his Memento and The Dark Knight and not become Mr Nolan's Lady in the Water or the sequels to The Matrix - or worse.

The ship is based on the one in Interstellar but of my own making. I hope to do at least two more pics of this craft and its possible adventures...

The planet was easy to do, the rings were a bit of a challenge but a minor one; I do hope I caught the glory of space with this one....

The hard part was the ship to make it look functional, and also to be seen.

Comments and feedbacks most welcome! :)

Commissioned: SI-83 Swallow Orthro by Colourbrand
Commissioned: SI-83 Swallow Orthro
This is a commission of the SI-83 Swallow Multipurpose Space Fighter and Attacker for :iconstronglikehong83: based on the previous commission of the same shipCommissioned: SI-83 Swallow by Colourbrand.

This was very difficult to do because it is not a 3D Render - so accuracy was important; I did it as best as but no doubt 3D makers can spot the flaws miles off - but my client loved it.

Love to hear your thoughts :D
Commissioned: UV-48 Frigate Concept by Colourbrand
Commissioned: UV-48 Frigate Concept
This is a commission for the fantastic and superb :iconthecentipede:

His brief was to depict a ship he had designed, like an illustration on a modelling kit box. That was easy - the ship looked like a speeder so I did her traversing at high velocity; kind of thing when they depict the Space Shuttle, the X-15, or Saturn V.

The picture took me a few days to do.

The ship bears a resemblance to the classic rocket ships designed by German scientist Wernher Von Braun, but this is no simple rocket plane; it is in fact a very sophisticated and ingenious spacecraft which houses some unusual but innovative technology.

For more details of this magnificent machine, please visit this -… - it is a stunning and well thought out read; then again, :iconthecentipede:'s works are so well engineered; his battletech stuff is superb too!

Please visit his page and show support for a fellow artist :)

Comments and feedback welcome.

Enjoy! :D
Star Seat by Colourbrand
Star Seat
This was inspired by a walk with a couple of friends at the beginning of Spring this year.

One of them saw a bench with a pair of bottles next to it - and I was inspired!

I had the image of the bench and bottles in my mind for ages and tried to use the concept in a number of ideas but all fell flat or looked stupid. I do not know where I got this from in the end but I felt apocalyptic - and thought that would be ideal.

I was going to do it as a scene on a ruined Earth but that was too familiar to Human Landmark, and A Sign of Hope.

So I tinkered with the idea of setting it in space, and the concept evolved; doomed planet, dust rings, debris - and it fell together.

Was going to write something, but it just felt meh, so I leave you the audience to decide what this is about :)

Comments, thoughts, and reactions most welcome!



Colourbrand's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

Just a person who is deep into fantasy and science fiction ideas, hoping to influence people in creativity and vice versa.

Oh and I love blowing up stuff (in art!!).

I do this for fun - because life should be.

However, if anyone wants any commissions done - Please let me know.

The going Rates are thus -

10+ For a Planet or simple space backdrop

15+ For a single ship in space, air, or clear backdrop

30+ For a complicated scene - i.e. mech battles, space battles, intense enviroments, something technical and unusual.

These may sound steep but decent people have paid for these services.

Thank you for your time :)

Normally I keep my journals dedicated to simple topics – always related to art on this site, and any feedbacks I request for. I keep my journal free of topics, issues, and anything media relative, mainly because I feel that it’s repeating what is being said, only with a smaller voice – think whisper in the wind and you have an idea of what I mean…


However, a recent series of events has now made me write this journal on the topic and I would love to hear from any of you thoughts on this matter.


At present in the UK – mainly England, there have been a lot of high profile investigations, allegations, and even convictions surrounding what is known as Historical Child Abuse.


This, (to those who do not reside in the UK) all started from revelations about the deceased individual, one Jimmy Savile; Mr Savile was a prominent charity raiser, figurehead for humanitarian causes, and a television/radio presenter. During the sixties and the seventies, he hosted world famous shows like Top of the Pops, and Jim’ll Fix it. He was famous for his eccentric behaviour and charity work, raising thousands for organisations like Great Ormond Street Hospital and Stoke Manderville. He even gained a knighthood for his sterling work in that field.


It later emerged after his death that Jimmy Saville was a notorious paedophile, and abuser of the infirm, sick, and especially of children, even necrophilia. However, the man got away with what has been classed as fifty plus decades of brutal atrocities to such victims.


As a result that this man “escaped” justice for what have described as a series of monstrous and savage barbaric crimes against children, the defenceless, and the infirm, the government launched Operation Yewtree to investigate any celebrities and personalities in that era, involved in such matters, and especially any associated with ‘Sir’ Jimmy.


One such person was caught, convicted and sentenced; the “artist”, charity fund raiser, and singer – Rolf Harris. Rolf was a friend of Jim’s and even went to the same places abuses occurred. Victims came forward to explain what he had done, evidence was mounted and despite threats from his team of lawyers, he was exposed and convicted despite being 80 plus in age.


So why am I telling you all this?


This is why.


Although dead, all evidence of Jim’s existence are being erased – this includes films, videos, and any memorabilia featuring or starring him. Even in an episode of “Only Fools and Horses” his name has been cut out of a scene.


As a result of his conviction, Rolf has suffered the same fate; Australia, his homeland has shunned his name, his art has disappeared and have become worthless, and his millions now turned into possible compensation for his victims.


Yet there are people who have done sinister things too but are still touted in our history – two examples; Osama Bin Laden, and Hitler. Look what they inspired to occur – the loss of numerous lives.


The dangerous thing is this – we are trying to erase these paeodo creeps from our history, our culture, and even out of our lives but I feel that this is setting a dangerous president – in the course of protecting the victims by no longer giving these villains air time, history is being altered.


SO the questions are these – should we erase/alter the pass to calm and ‘honour’ the victims? Or should we keep their names alive to make us remember to be vigilant and determined so such thing are caught in time, the wicked are punished, and that it never happens again?

Thanks for the watch! :)

I notice you're from the UK! What part? I've visited England and Scotland.


I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(


I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world. Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)


These updates are about your home!






Northern Ireland…






Isle of Man…


GOD bless
