Just wanted to post this image I did a while ago for a client, the project wasn't moving forward so I thought it would be nice to have an interior env space to show.

I started rolling on this painting yesterday afternoon. I was reading Obama's book the other day, Dreams from my Father, and he was describing a dream where he stumbled into a clearing in Africa, and the day shifted immediatley to night and this huge figure was standing among the trees. Funny how a paragraph can make such an image in your mind. Any how, I just started adding color about 20 min ago and thought I should post it and get some sleep.

Bell Prop Art

An art director at GDC told me that it's easier to start as a prop artist, as opposed to character. What do you guys think? I'm doubling my prop and storyboard with this one.

hey guys spend about 4 hours on this i need to work some more on it but this is what i have so far

something I cooked up after looking through androids work.

Andrew Jones

I used to be not so much into his work because I felt that they were just gimicky brush works. But after a long while and seeing him live, I'm just really in love with what he does now. Check it -

wk01, day 01: Terrible Yellow Eyes

I am embarking on a 10 week art project, committing at least eight hours a day for five days a week. Each week completing one portfolio piece and by the end I will have 10 brand new portfolio pieces. First day was today and this week's project is something for the blog Terrible Yellow Eyes; a blog tributed to Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are". Worth checking out, amazing artists there!

Posting some works from today. So far studies, tomorrow, rough in the drawing.

hey guys been working on this one here and is getting there i think i am planing of adding something in the middle so is not just an empty space at the end.

afew more things here and there i think it needs?


A night at the Museum.

I am going to try and go again before this exhibit leaves. It was awesome, I was tired from working all day, but once inside with a folding stool and a sketchpad, you couldn't ask for better subject matter. Also, you can learn alot as the museum docents come through guiding groups. In the bacckground I learned about the establishment of the Shogunate, combat tactics, armour and weapon producers, politics. Really a great time, $10 on a thursday night after 5 pm. (Thats 5 for the normal museum, 5 for the exhibit. Still worth it and cheaper than a movie~!

spend more time on it is getting there bit by bit

Be there or be square!

fat guy + wip

Here is my first pass. I started getting to the point I was inching parts of him around to get proportions fixed. Wish I could see that stuff in the beginning, its so hard to do it at the end. oh well, its loads of fun to paint something just for fun and portfolio! Let me know what you think.

Some New Sketches of characters over the past couple weeks. I just wanted a change from the environments and to develop my anatomy, especially getting perspective in the people for proper placement of feet and hands.
I aim to get at least one of these into paint before next week, I hope!

White Jumpsuit Color Experiments (Edited)

Edits to yesterdays post. What should I put in her hands? Does she appear to be walking or is that in my head. Hard to find good reference of someone mid-step.

Still experimenting with coloring. Learning how to use the brushes. Not really sure where this one is going, but she kind of turned into a ski bunny. Maybe she should be more of an astronaut.
