Linkin' it up.

More of my Zelda obsession. Speed paint attempt. Roughly 30 minutes. Original pose from a doodle on my notepad at work. Not sure if I'll go back and continue on it, I like the simplicity of it. SKYWARD SWORD THIS MONTH!

BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL!

HE-MAN! Sometimes, at work, I don't do my work. And I do this instead. FRIDAY YOU ARE SO GOOD.

Small update!

So things are going swell at Gas Powered, and work steadily continues on Age of Empires Online. Here's a quick WIP for anybody that checks in from time to time! At work, I tend to sketch in pen on my notepad. I've gathered quite a collection and one of them happens to be this Link sketch. I decided to give it a quick splash of color.

NEW JOB GET.



OH HEY ALL. Posting to announce that I've been working at Gas Powered Games for a solid week now and it's been pretty damn rad. I've been working on Age of Empires Online as a concept artist. The team is pretty flippin' great and the offices are beyond rad. Be sure to check out the official site for updates and hopefully I'll be able to post some work when I'm allowed to! I can't say much, but what I can say is that the game looks awesome and it's a thrill to work on.

Tree.




A concept for a theoretical video game my friend Craig Camara came up with. Full scale version, and then given a pixel pass. Is that a term? It is now.

MOAR D&D DAMN YOU.





So our regularly scheduled game has hit a stupid roadblock. Our last session was cut short by ComCast being a giant bastard with their connection. We didn't get to finish our sweet encounter with some very powerful characters (Okay, they weren't powerful, but we keep sucking at rolling to hit). Here's our Invoker Alek, and a Goblin.

Aedran the Cleric

So my fellow D&D adventurer and best bud Neil just drew his character so I could reference it. I have to say, it was utterly impressive and humbling to see how well his original drawing came out (he normally couldn't draw himself out of a brown paper bag). I didn't alter his design at all, just cleaned up the linework a bit. This is Aedran, our half-elf cleric. Now i have to go and change the comic strip I'm almost done with.

Another piece of art based on a great photograph by Roxi Dlite photography of my friend Stella Semiautomatic.

D&D Comic


A teaser for a comic strip I'm working on for our group's D&D adventure. Since I spent so much time listening to the Penny-Arcade D&D podcast prior to starting up our sessions, I felt inclined to attempt to illustrate the comic in Mike Krahulik's distinct style. Success? Probably not, but it was fun to try and imitate his sweet sweet style. That's Aedran our cleric (Sorry Neil, I auto-piloted a warrior priest kind of dude until you draw your guy), Whinston our hunter, and Tyrren our paladin. Missing is our invoker Alek. He'll be in subsequent D&D adventure art.

DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS.

I roll 20s, he decapitates the undead. It's a working partnership that I find brings happiness to my life. His name is Tyrren Azureblade and he's my D&D character. On other updates, I've got a freelance thing going with a company in Florida. They said they'd let me put some stuff up on my blog/website, so we'll see how that goes! I'm all moved into Seattle, and still settling down. Looking forward to getting back to posting more updates again, some of which will be depictions of my D&D adventures.

Things.



So got a couple of things brewing. The first is this jump trooper. Wearing equipment enabling ship to ship boarding, or short atmospheric jumps. Working on the color version now.


The other thing, is an inside joke that has sparked itself to life. I will probably never explain this to any of you, so let the speculation begin!

Wolverine Redux

Looking through some of my older work, I get the urge every now and again to revisit something or change it a bit. With my Wolverine fan art piece, I wanted to try something where less was more. So, nothing incredibly new here, just a take on an old bit of work.

Paladins. Love 'em.

Because you (I) can never have enough Paladins.

Goblin Hero


A work in progress of what's coming out of refining the last silhouette exercises. Next up, armor design and continuing color.

Friday, March 04, 2011

Shapes



An exercise in silhouettes and shapes for Goblins. Hopefully some personality also came across in the silhouettes.

A Boy and a Beast

A boy and a beast. Companions? Competitors? Couriers? Cantaloupes? I ran out of 'C' words to describe what might be their relationship.

Lion-O

Finally wrapped up that Lion-O fanart piece. Boy, how I miss 30 minute animated commercials for action figures and accessories.

Elf Paladin

Elf Paladin portrait. Attempted speed paint. Wasn't too fast, but it wasn't too slow either. For some reason, when Blogger uploads images, the colors change drastically. If anybody knows how to fix this, puhleez PM or email me.

Creatures


A concept for a Rhont, a beast of burden. It's almost an elephant! Or a turtle. Or wait... what?

Thundercats, HOOOOOO!


Yeah, you remember. There's been a lot of talk about Thundercats remakes and I heard about the new Cartoon Network show, so I decided to fanart my own Lion-O as I'd like to see him remade. This is till a work in progress, but the little kid inside of me got really excited so I had to post a WIP.

Space Marine





















SPASE MAHREEN! Everyone needs to draw space soldiers at some point. So then I did. I started off with wanting to do a speed paint, and then that didn't happen. So, this is what I ended up with. With and without tactical HUD faceguard/visor.

More Earth Eternal!








More concepts for the ill-fated MMO Earth Eternal. These armor concepts are spread over the categories of light, medium and heavy armor.

It's Morphin' Time?


So I was going to practice some digital painting techniques and I was going to try my hand at your run o' the mill Space Marine armor but because I'm tired of space marines, I started making it something else. Everyone remember the Power Rangers? Because I sure as hell still do. Here's my favorite one ever, the Blue Ranger.

Cute Girls.


This is a portrait of a wonderfully talented Burlesque dancer/performance artist who goes by the super-pretty-damn-awesome-moniker Stella Semiautomatic. The original photograph which I used for reference was taken by Patrick Edwards. Ms. Semiautomatic is part of The Keyhole Sessions, a super talented group of hot people, being hot. And performing deliciously erotic modeling for life drawing and photography sessions! If you're in the Toronto area, and love drawing live models, this is a must.

Also, who wants to buy me a ticket to Toronto?

Book Wizard


This wizard carries a lot of books. For his spells. And appointments. Recipes too. And Router WEP password.

SF-33 Starfighter Pilot


When you pilot one of the world's most technologically advanced starfighters, you have to glow blue. Well, a part of your suit does anyway.

Painting

A work in progress for a small painting I'm working on. First of a series of tiny self portraits. TINY.

Book WIP

So my friend Cornelius Coons and I are working on a book. Here's a quick illustration sneak peak. The final book illustrations are going to be far more glorious and illustratish (this is a new word I made up, just roll with it, please) than this. Self published and all that jazz.

Video Game Making




My best friend Cornelius and I have always wanted to make an old school 16-bit game full of pixely goodness. We mostly dabble these days, but once we win the lottery... we're buying corvettes. But right after that, we're making a video game. Cornelius made the initial palette and shape choices for the pixel version.

VIKING.
