Warframe - Ember Custom skin
The Phlegeton skin for Ember. Alas, she will most likely never see the light of day.

I'm sorry you guys :(

Hope you like my horrid wordsmithing!

Mag Custom Deluxe skin

Alternate skin design for Warframe, the free-to-play space ninja simulator by Digital Extremes.

It's very difficult to express magnetism in a character design, so I experimented with the skin's body being a collection of magnetically shaped fragments.

Street Samurai
Patreon funded cyberpunk artwork for a piece of fiction I'm writing.

Here lies, The Original Ember Deluxe Skin.
I've bought every of your designed deluxe skins as to your dedication!
It hurts me a lot to see you go away though. </3
Asturisk Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
I am really inspired by your original Ember Deluxe skin. had a real fall out with art, just so many turns in life but thanks for being inspiring. hope to make some skins for fun and will credit you on the inspiration if i stop being so stubborn haha. 
ProjectNetoku Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Are you the designer of the Ember deluxe skin by chance ?
Im a warframe gamer from the console part- I heared some stuff happened and you were fired- or left due to a disagreement, sorry if im digging into healing wounds

The new design personally is a bit ... let's just say despite what happens you're skin was one i was waiting to see <3 
( im not well informed im just trying to find out what's going on is all ;w; )

  If you made that skin- if it were ok with you, could anyone willing to from the tennogen community make that ember skin into a model for the future; if someone is as pationate about these designs as i am i mean X'3

anyways following and catching up on all your designs- I really love Trinity and Rhino's the most <3 <3
keep up the good work ok and sorry again if im mixing stuff up or bringing up stuff better not mentioned
IgnusDei Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
I did design that skin, and I would love to see it realized. Sadly, I doubt that any Tennogen could make a skin based on the original ember deluxe, since DE legally owns the rights to that image and they chose not to use it.

Wow you have amazing concept art here!
I'm interested in doing these kinds of character designs but most of them only get to stay in my sketchbook XD
Your skin designs for Warframe really inspire me!
Even though you don't work for DE anymore, the players will still remember you :)

Love your work man <3
Loganius Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2017
I just heard about what happened between you and DE. I'm sorry to hear about that, man. Your content is my absolute favorite. I'd take you as the design director over whoever's running that team any day of the week.

Out of curiosity, did you have ideas for other 'frames, such as Valkyr, Atlas, and Nekros?

Sorry if this is a topic that you're sick of hearing about?
IgnusDei Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
For Atlas I definitely would have played up with either the brawler or mythological themes and cranked them up to eleven, that's for sure, but I'm not sure what my approach for Valkyr or Nekros would have been.
DarkghostX Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2017
I have a question, will we see an illustration of your type 40 HF blade? Your description of it peaks my interest.

I love your work, you are a fantastic artist and an equally awesome writer. I salute you good sir.

Ahh I see, thank you enlightening me IgnusDei.
