Earth and the planet Shuromij are plagued by Psychic monsters from Otherworldly Dimensions. Thanks to the Occult order of Nishin Genma who played God for millennia, the galaxy must endure their wicked legacy of extra-sensory experiments!

But standing his ground against such blasphemies is a former disciple reborn as a Mutant Demigod through Baptism in the Black Fires of Hades itself. He is Ryuken Kage, the sole survivor of the ultimate weapon program, the Genma Visage!

His former masters sought to find the Cure. They created only a Disease. Now Ryuken will stop it Spreading!

25/11/2019:

As of late, although Linkedin can be seen as indifferent to what I do hence why other sites like Deviantart, Artstation and Instagram fill the bill, I've been giving mine a good shunt so that it appears a lot more up to date and vocal.

Unfortunately, the turbulent period for me is still present, and it has tempted me to start this post on a much more negative note. But I'm no Quitter!

Still, this will make some chaps snigger in the back row. I am contemplating something that proves that hell has not only frozen over, but it has also got a pack of Coca Colas in reserve.

I'm contemplating Patreon!

Many thanks and cheers to everyone who made London MCM a really swell convention this year. I made similar announcements on the FB but I just wanted to say that I now have a Twine page as well for the certain flair of commissioners to contact me through. My reach is getting stronger by the day, folks!

I've had a wee snag with firefox with this website, though Chrome and basic Internet Explorer seem to be running alright. Basically, there was a security certificate issue that my service provider alerted me, while I seem to have updated that for another 6 months, Firefox that I tried the site seems to give the alarm bell on website security, which blocks you (temporarily) from my site. It could be a setting on that particular computer at the time. Still, if anyone's having errors, give me a shout to let me know.

In any case, payment transactions won't be done through the website directly for the time being (there'll be PayPal and offsite stores for that), so there shouldn't be any risks here. Tom over and out.

I've extended my reach to
Artstation and Instagram lately.

So I've uploaded the key artworks I've done over the past 5 years onto this site, and I have to say I find this place pretty top notch. I'll be keeping my Deviantart up for time I think, but so far artstation blows it out the water and will probably become my dominant separate art page besides the home page.

What I like about this (as you can check out) is that you upload stuff as projects, meaning you can showcase the sketches, inks, concepts and general works of progress besides the main image. You CAN do this on facebook and deviantart of course, but only as separate images, so you feel like you risk cluttering your gallery or peeing in the wind \ playing second fiddle with lots of tiny updates. Keeping everything localised just feels so much more tidy.

On top of that from what I can see, there's lots of pro quality art on this site, so it feels great to place yourself in an environment where you can keep pushing and breaking the limits of your capabilities for a good cause.
I've added the buttons on my homepage's menu. Otherwise you can see my stuff in the links and catch some of the process of the artworks.

Instagram updates sre next, though won't be as detailed as I've done on Artstation.

Hello, chaps. There was a fair share of updates on the facebook blog that made mention of the stage by stage process on the ebook shtick, the cancellation of Scotland MCM 2019 due to family and work-related issues, and the booking of London MCM October 2019, probably the last con this year. In short, I'm cutting to the chase with the most recent lengthy update.

So there you have it. That's the offload of stuff I've been working on for some time. Could be better, could be worse. I'm at the point where Sean Connery says to Harrison Ford "Indiana...let it go..."
The website and gallery have been tailored accordingly and may receive some minor tweaks or additional content as the ball keeps rolling. Otherwise, here's hoping that you've enjoyed the ride so far, and somewhere between the heavy crunch I've enjoyed it too, hah! Here's hoping that the recent revelation about Book 0's token pretty boy Seker prompts a few sales and inquiries of interest for the series. After all, there's Book 0 PART 3 to look forward to!
On that subject, there's the further issue of the store. Basically, the EBOOK and print versions are ready, but I wish to have some further meditation on the outlets before I press the button, as leaving it in someone else's hands is certainly no decision to rush. Incidentally, I will not be doing LULU.com as a book printing outlet. Honestly, it was a ballpark name I've been throwing out there to tempt someone if not a distant descendant across time and space to burst into my room and shout "DO NOT DO IT!" But certain reviews nevertheless steered me away from Lulu as they basically bend you over and give you one from what I hear.
At the moment I have a good deal with my choice of printers. For the time being, Tuke Works Productions will be printing and posting all sales first hand, along with the bonus sketches I normally provide with each sale. I'll have to play it by ear when a proper publisher comes along, or it reaches a point where I'm fully engaged in posting thousands out per week, of course, if that day comes, that alone would provide a cosy full-time job. :P
There'll be more news to come here and there, but to anyone reading this (and thanks for your time) if you wish to shoot a few suggestions based on your experience, I will certainly be all ears.
In conclusion, I'll leave you with one last teaser: The names of potential projects in the future.
Genma Visage Book 4
Genma Visage Book 5?
Genma Visage Book 0 Part 3
Genma Visage Expanded Lore collection 1
Genma Visage Expanded Lore collection 2 (!)
Lust of the Marid 1
Possible Future titles of Lust of the Marid
Potential Art Book of a pending name (possibly something Poncy like "Uncharted Mind chasms of Akai Kiba" )

Ello chaps! Tommy Tuke has made it back to Blighty, though perhaps I'm overdue for the announcement. In truth, no sooner had I got back to the U.K that I did get loaded with a few commissions and a couple of other itches to scratch.

So yeah, my trip across the pond to Canada was indeed delightful. In short, between the R.O.M, rich countryside, the C.N. tower, aquarium, the Zoo, bears, in-laws, lots of travelling, cider, coffee, maple syrup, sunshine, Lovecraft audiobooks and my wonderful niece Cordelia, you can tell I had a great time. Apart from the subpar apartment that I was staying at and the scheming owner trying to rob us, I can't find fault in the trip at all. I was thoroughly refreshed and content, charging my mental batteries for the day I arrive back and get cracking back to my Art.

Onto the first and bad news: Sadly I will not be doing Scotland MCM this year due to Work and family-related reasons. Nothing severe but still demanding, and as other colleagues had other duties, there wasn't much point without a real party. So I'm pooling all my energy into London MCM instead, or perhaps any other major convention post-Halloween. To all my regular customers who make the journey on that convention, I'm still available for commissions if you need something fixed up. On that note yes, Commissions are available to anyone else. ;)

In any case, based on where I left it on my last blog and deviation, the future of Genma is looking bright. 3 to 5 books are in mind for the pipeline which Still a lot of work of course. The expanded Lore collection was my next one out hopefully this fall, with plans to write another collection of Lore stories, 2 of which will concern the Arch Demon Grail with other tales involving Zulie Zerpent and Shiki Logan from Tytronitek city. I've had further concepts for stories for Maud Lesgov which will serve as Bonus stories for the other comics. The next actual comic of Genma will be Book 4, knocking the saga in Los Rokuma on the head followed by Book 0 part 3.

All that said though, as I mentioned in my last journal, the priority besides the Lore collection for this year was, of course, Lust of the Marid. During my Canada adventures, I had plenty of time to ponder on what to write, and so far progress on the first story is coming along. Since I uploaded the concepts a while back, the core setting remains intact but significant changes have been made to a number of characters as well as the general theme. I don't know If I mentioned it before, but you can certainly forget this tale being a deliberate parody or comedy. For sure it'll embrace a Cartoony look with the spur of the moment shots of black, attention-to-detail humour, but it'll be plot-driven plot as opposed to the common trend where thin stories support cheap jokes. The plot itself will be a bit darker as well. Not too dark as I want room for optimism, but dark enough to tell a more interesting story, as frankly, it's been 8 years of throwing poo against the wall and seeing what sticks. :P Simply put, I love doing detailed art and you'll see what I mean in the coming time.

So yes, new arts have been made and are on their way, including spreading of the Lore art and a certain Kindle upload. Be sure to tell me what you think. x - TomT

Ello chaps, and It's about bloody time too.

After an immense single-handed workload, the website art and additional Lore stories are now up. Plus the comics are ready to go Gold and take their new path in the outlets of Amazon Kindle and other online outlets including (possibly) lulu and comixology. Naturally, it was always possible to order personal copies from my convention stock and that will still be viable if you want me to sign copies or have Ink doodles to go with it, but the online outlets will now take some weight off my hands. The final cuts of Book 0 parts 1 and 2 will now have their official release.

The 3 new Lore stories are available to read in the Lore section and after some pondering the vastly expanded, 4 times longer versions that I "accidentally" wrote will be available for purchase this fall in a collected volume which will including additional artwork to boot. As we speak I'm also sizing up the offchance that there will be 3 more beyond that in a further volume that covers further adventures for our Mutant Demigod hero.

Suffice to say I am very relieved to end one great project and excited to begin another as this year rolls on. I did plan that the Lust of the Marid side project would be the next main priority as I wanted a break from Genma. Otherwise, besides the focus on the promotion, Book 4 of the series along with the final part of the Book 0 Chaos series will be next on the cards.

I'd like to say many thanks to the recent and pursued interest from new and old fans alike. The new artwork that I've routinely promised (and so sorry for the pushbacks!) will make its rounds known this July in the buildup. Otherwise, you can see a good chunk of them in advance on the website itself.

I'll be doing some travelling for the next couple of weeks of which my sketchbook and fine and dandy paper will never be far away. Hoping to bring back some traditional art seeing how I'm practically full digital now. I shall see you chaps in July!

To anyone who's just looked me up after the last MCM Expo, I just wanted to say thank you for your time and your help in making this May's MCM the best in a while. It was great meeting you all, and it is my ambition to make my upload rate more fruitful over the next coming months. As I may have stated, I'm one of those "do it bulk" kind of guys as opposed to "teeny little notices about the weather" chaps.

This picture was originally done as insurance for a recent commission to assure the client that she was still in the loop amidst a busy schedule, which brings me onto the sad news I said I was going to mention as hinted in this picture. I wasn't going to make a massive Song and Dance Macabre about it persay but I felt it was necessary to get a few things off my chest.

While I haven't been left a broken man, I could want for better over the past 6 months, for I've had to say farewell to a few people I know. As some of you are maybe aware, our good buddy Andy Lee made the decision to take his own life last November. More details have arisen since then, and as you can expect with these tragedies, there seems to be quite a complex story to pick up on. While we're not blaming directly the doctor who treated Andy, Curt and I have expressed our anger on the therapy system as a whole who may have had its hand in his downfall, particularly if it started pumping him full of the kind of pills that make you go whacko if you take too much or too little. Curt can give you a better story than I can, but suffice to say it's added another wrinkle onto the face of my less than sunny opinion of modern psychiatric therapy. As I said in a previous Image, Andy, for a chap I never met face to face, was a most friendly fellow, and a very promising Artist who was making quite the progress in his career, so it's far from the kind of story I would have like to have seen cut short.

It didn't end there, unfortunately. About 4 weeks before Christmas, a close friend of my family, particularly my Mum and Dad who knew Steve since they were teens, was taken from this world due to complications in heart surgery. The guy may have had diabetes and a heart condition, but even still he was hardworking, kept himself active and did a lot of travelling. He didn't strike me like a worst case scenario for his physical condition, yet fate had other plans. We gave him a bright send off the week following Christmas into the new year. As I had known him and the family since I was a wee lad, another chapter in the book came to end as Steve made that journey to the other side, hopefully to the tune of much reggae, funk, jazz and soul that himself, Dad and friends enjoy for all time.

Then, my Gran expired last March. She had reached the age of 97 and a half, and in summary, she had simply been "fading away" in the last month of her life. She had been dealing with Dementia for the last 8 years, which again makes this a rather complicated and touchy story to discuss. All the same, Gran had led a long eventful life and was certainly quite the character that made her mark on our lives, and because she had been with us for so long, naturally it was hard to let go. Her funeral was on a bright sunny day and was as good as you can expect. It was overwhelming in the emotion category for sure, but we were in the company of our close friends to make us feel rather loved and merrier in the celebration of Gran's life.

There's light at the end of the tunnel, mind you. As of the past month, I've been made an Uncle. My Big Bro who is doing well overseas with his lovely Wife has brought my Niece into the world and what a bouncy ball of chubby-cheeked cuddles she's turned out to be! I'll be seeing them all in the next couple of weeks for a long deserved break, so I'm sure looking forward to that.

So that's about it, really. I'm not going to force feed you some complex circle of life analogy or how I feel. But I guess the "close to death" factor, the new generation to be a role model for and the fact that I've recently single-handedly accomplished a good few personal workloads means I can certainly, to honour their above memories, push forward and live life to the fullest.

I just wanted to say thanks again to all those who stood shoulder to shoulder with us during these hard times. It's infinitely much appreciated. Thanks again as well those sticking with me during my personal projects. May all your paths be ones of peace. x x

More updates coming, hopefully next week. Sandown park Toyfair and Scotland MCM should hopefully be the next conventions that I'll be attending.

18/02/2019:
I've had a bumpy few months as announced here and there on my Facebook and D.A. Christmas was otherwise lovely as always and MCM was Okay. I'm just dropping this quick message to let folks know I'm alive and well as evident in the renewal of my domain. Asides from the odd snippet I can't really reveal much of what I'm working on just yet, but suffice to say when the big update comes, the hard work will show. Will keep in touch! x x x -TomT
