painting of phone

painting done on lunch break, around 20-30 minutes. Had a professor in college named Pro Brown and he used to say to me bend the form with light!!!!!! I can't get that out of my head. I really need to go back and visit with those guys.

Emilys Design

This idea is for a design in the babies room. Also included is a painting study of a skull.

The other day my father said to me he thought my work was very dark. So I painted a Hitler.
This painting is actually full body but found myself just focusing on a small area to practice in. I think thats bad.
Seriously just trying to lay value down to bend form, and figure out how to break bad habbits and learn new techniques. Wow lot of work ahead.

So I have been hitting up a figure drawing class ever other Sunday with Aisleen. I am so happy we found this place. Figure drawing is very special to me because my roots are buried deep in it. Going to say it again, I am so glad to be back in it!!!!!!

At the end of this session an older gentleman proclaimed it to be the most challenging thing to do in all of the arts.

update and head sculpt

Been a while since I have posted some stuff. This is the indian from a few posts back. I have reworked both sculpts. I have also attached a head I have been working on at lunch breaks. I am starting to feel more comfortable in terms of carving out shape. Feel absolutely free to crit this stuff they are all

I love satr wars. This would have been my pod racer if I was in the movie. I owe a huge thanks to Aisleen for the help she gave to me at the end of the week. the hell do i paste a link in this thing?

When I was young GI JOE was everything. I put myself in the shoes of the guys who designed the movie vehicles. I used the mech from an old post and designed a Cobra transport, Gun Mech....LOL This thing needs a driver!!!!

update 2

So about to get into some new tools in z-brush and see how cleaned up and tight I can make this guy. I also started sketching something this beast can be pulling. (he needs a job!!) I see two beasts pulling like a horse and carriage type deal.

This is a very exciting time. I am starting to see cubes and spheres and things wedging and passing over one another.

City Sports Released

City Sports is our latest title to be released and I only have great things to say about this project. When you get to be part of something that everyone is excited about it is a lot of fun. I watched our team work together and accomplish some pretty big goals.
The biggest goal for the art team was building an art direction to blend characters, environments and Huds together. I do not consider this to be an easy task. In fact it's our toughest. I posted this particular painting because I think it was that one thing we could always go to when we needed an answer.
Some highlights- Chris and Carissa's cast of characters (very fun to end up as Paul)
Yin's single player environment (Yeah it worked!!)
Andrews hockey scene and pigeons (pulled together what I considered a failed design on my end, the hockey painting)
Jeffs animation in kickball (I always like when there is life)
and for me, well my biggest moment was catching Jeff using the pencil tool to paint a texture!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Animators (should have kept the seriously game is full of life)

Oh yeah and the programmers did ok on this one to..........LOL.......good job guys!!!!


Inspired by shadow complex I wanted to build a mech. Here is the 2d drawing. I fully intend to paint this and build it.

An update on the sculpt. I started posing him and reworking his anatomy to fit. I can feel him moving so that's a good thing. I have been studying one of my favorites, Richard Macdonald. GOOD structure and pushing life is the focus here.

For some stupid reason I have always felt if I have to go to reference for assistance than I'm not a good artist. Like I'm not intelligent or something. I don't know where I got that from but thanks to the guys at work I'm starting to break that train of thought. I'm invisioning Chris Farley right now slapping himself saying...your so stupid, stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, August 21, 2009


So I posted the crab painting on a art website and I recieved a really good crit. Basically said I need to be more clear. Being more clear means more inteligent. This is the first drawing/painting I have done since that crit.
On a side note the design is based off of a memory from my old job. There was a diesel mechanic there who could fix anyhting and he had cool equiptment to work with.

A couple good friends of mine at work designed a game that I really see a great amount of potential in. This was done for fun, on personnel time. My own interpretation of the main characters ship. On the bottom rt and lt are 2 massive thrusters, igniting like blowtorches. The cockpit is designed so the pilot can see out in all directions, making sure not to make contact with anything.

creature_concept_The Healer

I am starting to use photos to help myself create a texture quality to my work. I'm digging it. So anyhow here is an enemy u will encounter on your adventure outside the main city.

Wednesday, August 5, 2009


Babe this one's for you. An interpretation of the pregnancy so far......LOL, u better be laughing. I love u and that little lemon.
On a serious note this was really inspired by the great character work our concept artists are doing.. I'm just trying to keep up!!!!!

marker environment for Healer

This is a marker rendering taken a bit further than the last post. I had a hard time staying focused on where a light source was coming from.

Monday, July 27, 2009


some marker roughs for the Healer.

Friday, July 10, 2009


I came home tonight ready to practice something I am just starting to study. Light. Another thing I want to comment on is ever since I started studying to be an artist, the main goal was to see the best I possibly could. I don't think I ever really understood that until very very recently. Something is happening in the way I am seeing the page. I am kinda starting to see whats not there. I want to get to a point where that is all the time. Another way to say this is I'm not guessing as much.

healer first boss fight

Everyone at work loves boss fights. The healer is going to have insanely hard to go through levels and then at the end, reward the player with an insanely hard boss fight. I want this game to be hard to play. This drawing is a boss you will meet in the game.
I'm watching a gears concept tutorial and this drawing is clearly inspired by the gears universe. God I love this field.
Also included is a drawing with his weapon attached. This rock spins and if hits you at the right angle kills u, one shot.


Here is another z-brush sketch. Basically starting from the sphere primitive and modeling something from it. I have been having fun doing that as of late. I feel like I'm getting back in the sculpting game. I have had medusa in my head for a while now and thought it would be fun to do a design of her. Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!! Just wanted to add one more thing, we love u Dad and we had a great visit with you.

attachedn for life

The main villain in the Healer is Lord Tartan. I hate the name. Anyhow this is his body. He is fused to this contraption. He fuses into other things to get around depending on his needs. His left hand also can be fused into things. He is a man in pain for so many reasons and also a man of seething anger.

bad guy Healer

I have posted some ideaologies of my main charater for the Healer and now for the bad guy. This design has been on going for a long time. I'm confident this is what he feels like.

ice mountain painting

something at work we can't use. I liked it so I decided to post a piece of the painting.

board designs

Here are my first two baords I have posted on mind melter. I have a third board but I'm debating whether or not it's finished.


rough painting of a weapons plant, the weapon in which it creates, and the third image is of a mining transport. I'm in the process of painting it up to make it more clear. Think of the design as an eighteen wheeler with a flatbed attached to it. that part has been cut off some and I'm in the process of thinking it out.

messed up

its late but one more I'm doodling. Hands are screwed up because of z-spheres. I'll get it right one of these days.


On my lunch breaks as of late I have been sculpting this torso from my head. I'm pretty excited about him, I feel like my anatomy from memory is starting to come out. I lost my hard drive so the indian sculpt is gone. I'm starting to think it's a good thing. A fresh start.

mind melters
I am trying something new. I love doing designs and have always wondered if they would fit in anywhere. The idea of fitting them onto skateboards came to me so I am starting a little shop online to see if the skating community is interested. Check it out, spread the word cause Jess and I need money......there's a baby on the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009


Hey everyone, lots of crazy things happening lately. Anyhow I'm pretty excited about this painting. It didn't go anywhere at work so I'm posting it to share with u guys.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009


Today at work I brought in a favorite book of mine by the artist Stephan Martiniere. It inspired me to do this skeleton doodle. I am also posting a small update of yesterdays post.
