I always take progress shots of my work at regular intervals. In the case of 'Templar', which took a fair amount of time, this ended up with about 35 different shots. I thought I'd show about half of them here rather than have them sit about unseen.

Nik Ainley is a digital illustrator based in the UK. He has been producing personal and commissioned illustrations for a wide array of clients for over ten years.

Self-taught, he first found his love for digital art while studying physics at university. He quickly found his interest in producing graphics on computer outgrowing that of his studies. After completing his degree he moved full time into design and illustration and has been there every since.

Nik is constantly trying to expand his range of abilities and is happiest when learning new software or techniques. He works in both 2D and 3D software to produce his images and especially enjoys the results combining the two can achieve. was first launched in 2004 and has since attracted over five million visitors.

He is represented in the UK by the Central Illustration Agency and sells high quality art prints with ClickforArt.

Nik is tired of writing about himself in the third person now and is going to stop.

Hi, I have a somewhat important message, so please reply. I am doing a study on digital art for an art theory class I am taking. I would love featuring your works under a Photo Manipulation exhibit. Is that okay with you?
