Godric Gryffindor/Goddard Griffin D'Or by InfernalFinn
Godric Gryffindor/Goddard Griffin D'Or
I've enjoyed Harry Potter for a while, but one of the areas that has interested me the most has always been the founding and construction of Hogwarts as both school and castle and the idea of seeing the wizarding world during its magical heyday.

I know that J.K. Rowling is a fan of T.H. White's 'The Once and Future King', saying that Wart very much inspired Harry's humble origin as a boy destined for greatness.

With that in mind, I like the idea of the Medieval era of Harry Potter mingling with Arthurian legend. Contrary to what is actually written in the books and their supplementary text, I always imagined Merlin setting the four founders on their path to codifying the practice and education of magic in England. Apparently in Harry Potter 'canon' Merlin was a student at Hogwarts who was sorted into and studied under Salazar Slytherin(??)

So here is my take on Goderick Lleweryr (I am probably butchering that Welsh) who would later become known as Goddard le Griffin D'Or - and ultimately be remembered as Godric Gryffindor, from wild moor.
Captain America Poster 2 by InfernalFinn
Captain America Poster 2
Here is my second Captain America magazine cover. I much prefer the idea of Steve Rogers being thawed out in the 60s - as in the original run of the Avengers comic. Even that twenty year gap creates a huge disparity between the ‘greatest generation’ overcoming evil in Europe and America’s disenchantment with the conflict in Vietnam. As a soldier, what kind of symbol would Captain America represent in the 60s?
Ultraman by InfernalFinn
There isn’t enough tokusatsu love out there in the world. Sure, people have a recent interest in kaiju… but where would a kaiju be without a hero to fight them?
It's been years since I have written a 'journal entry' on Deviant Art...

The reason I am writing this is to cross promote my art Tumblr that I just started posting to. Tumblr as a service has a few flaws, but I like it - and habitually check it more than Deviant Art these days. is my art blog - where I hope to be posting regularly, both finishes, works in progress and some pieces that I have already posted here. is where I post a lot of my reference, art that I enjoy along with an assortment of other things I like to share such as movies, music and games.

I will continue to post art to my profile here, I just wanted to give Tumblr a shot.

I would be honored to feature some of your work in my freshly opened group. Its specialised on high detailed military illustrations and it will host only the finest deviations and will gather some of the most talented artists.

I sent the requests. You have to confirm them.

You are also warmly invited to join.

PS: you should do more historical art as you are as good at it as at fantasy.

Fantastic eye for detail! Your style is great, too. I really want to draw more renaissance/medieval-esque things for sure now.
