Painting days

I am going to try doing at least one painting every couple of days and post it up during this break from school to keep me going. On another note, for the coming semester, I plan to design characters for a "King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table" done Dynasty Warriors style or at least for its engine for Senior Studio. So the paintings that I will be doing will revolve around medieval armors, weapons and themes with design twist to the traditional armors scene. Here is the first one which is a portrait of a helmet based on Danish Viking helmets with a bit of an "elf" design twist. I guess you could even call it a bit celt inspired.

Vehicle Quickie before bed

Just thought I would do a quick robot/vehicle design study before going to bed. I think it took about 1hr??? All I have to say is that I'm pretty rusty at doing vehicles. Enjoy

sub character process work

Meet Gepetto and Pinocchio. They're traveling companions that you meet along the way in the game that I'm doing IP development for in my senior studio course. These are just sketches to show what I've got cooking for the two characters at the moment and like with the other two post, I'll post up the final designs when they are completely finished.

Main character design process

This is the process that I used to achieve the main character's look of the game that I am doing IP development for in my senior studio class. This would be the first outfit he wears within the game and as you advance through the game and gain more experience, you will have the opportunities to achieve outfits that are more bad ass looking. The final design is still going through tweaks so when it's finished, I'll post him up.

prophet process

This is the process work that led to my last character illustration. He will be fully changed soon. I'm ok with his design at the moment but I'm not exactly 110% satisfied with his design quite yet so when I get his final design done, I'll post him up. He is also suppose to have a wheel chair but that will be following in later.

The Prophet

The man is neither evil nor good. He believes he is just in his thoughts. I give you THE PROPHET!!!!!!!

Another teaser and update

Just got back from Icon 6 this past week and all I have to say is that it was GLORIOUS!! Met a lot of really awesome and talented artist. I will be sure to post up more info on my experience at Icon 6 but I'm limited on battery power right now and can only manage a quick update. Here is a teaser for another piece I am currently working on at the moment. Enjoy and have a good one people.

quick sketch

So here is a quick character sketch I did a couple of nights ago. I just couldn't get to a scanner or else this sketch would have been up sooner. I started off just letting my mind and hand do what ever they wanted and then once the basic "invisible lines" started taking shape, I decided to take more control over what this sketch would turn out as. When I decided to take more control, I felt like I haven't done enough post-apocalyptic type characters and drawings and figured I should give it a go. So here is my take on a post-apocalyptic "ninja," in a sense. Hope you guys enjoy. Oh, I'm also working on a little matte painting that should be finish either tomorrow or the day after. Will post that one up as well when its finished.

So it's finals week and it's getting a bit hectic. I still have about 5 characters, 3 environments and a whole bunch of props that need to be finished and printed in a book format by this Wednesday night. I think I'll make it because if I stay positive about this then I'll have the energy to make it. Anyways, here is a WIP of one of my characters that I am working one. I'll share the story and the rest of the characters when i finish. Like always, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my rants and looking at my art. Have a good one folks.

So maybe the treehouse is finished?? I'm not to sure yet but I think I'll be making adjustments to it through out this week as well as working on it a bit more. Only thing is, I need to take a break from looking at it, that way I can look at it with new refreshed eyes after a day or two of not looking at it. Crits and comments are always welcomed. Also, sorry if this post has bad grammar, it's getting late and I didn't get much sleep so I'm not sure if my mind is working all that well right now. lol.... anyways, have a goo one people.

tree house update

So I thought I would give you guys a quick update on my Treehouse project for my environments and characters class at CCS. This is the color study for the project and any crits and comments are welcomed. Nothing new with me either besides feeling burnt-out from school. Hope you all have good one.

All I can say is sketches, sketches and more sketches for a "treehouse" project in class and a couple of weird ship/vehicle sketches just for the fun of it.
