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.

Warframe - Rhino Custom
"Palatine" custom skin commissioned by DE for Warframe,  their free-to-play clone slaughterhouse simulator! This was actually the first skin I designed for them, using similar design elements to Aleph, which can be seen here:… . Other influences include The Forgotten One from Lords of Shadow, Berserk, and evidently I was subconsciously thinking about the Armoured Titan :/

True story: fans of this skin really wanted the 'Iron Skin' visual effect to be replaced so that it would become a translucent shield instead of overlaying the whole model in a metal texture.

Warframe - Ash Custom
"Koga" custom skin design commissioned by Digital Extreme for Warframe, the free-to-play space ninja mass murder simulator. A lot of folks like to colour this like a ninja turtle, so I got the theme mostly right, it seems ;)

Hey guys! A couple of years ago, in order to support myself, my writing and my art, I set up a Patreon, a monthly/per delivery crowdfunding system. If you like my sketches and scribblings and would like me to keep going, feel free to drop by and become a patron! Every dollar you donate will count towards stretch goals that will increase the quality of my work and the creation of goodies!

One thing you should know before going in: you'll be primarily supporting the writing of MEHR, a mass-effect / deus ex crossover fanfic (which you can read here:…).  That being said, 5$ patrons get to vote every month on an extra piece of work, such as a piece of concept art, or even a different piece of fanfiction!

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

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.

How much are your commissions, if you do any?
IgnusDei Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2017  Professional Digital Artist

Can you please create a skin for Excalibur on the same outstanding level of Rhino Palatine? Thank you very much
IgnusDei Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Not until DE decides to hire me again, which isn't likely.
