Late, but Angela is done for now.

I need to work on my shadows . . . and do a crash coarse on metals in Photoshop. Still, I like what I managed to do with this project.

Angela - Gargoyles

Angela from Gargoyles. Here I am thinking older, in human years around 50ish, or around 100 o so in Gargoyle terms. Gargoyles age half the pace of humans due to them turning to stone in the day. In the series she was around 20ish.
Occupation - Gargoyle Special Forces (GSF) created to maintain peace between Gargoyles and Humans given a large increase in gargoyle numbers.

Angela - Gargoyles

Ill be drawing Angela for the new challenge, since I always loved the Gargoyle series. I will be going for an aged looked in a future scene.

Bad Company "work in progress"

Pretty rough, and I didn't get it all done the way I wanted, but I really did leave my comfort zone behind with this one. Some time soon I will get back to it, but overall I like the progress made. Onto the next challenge!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012


Kinda pushed this off until the last minute but this is what I was able to pull off in a few hours. The design is based on Disney's 1938 short Ferdinand the Bull. I took a shot at adding color but wasn't getting results I liked so I'll just leave it at this clay like material.

So this definitely a work in progress but time's a bitch so here it is.

B for Butcher final

Here's my butcher final. Kinda a big leap from my last post to this. Didn't really have time for color comps and stuff so I just went at it.

Friday, July 6, 2012


Heres some ideas for the letter B, Butcher

definitely procrastinating as well. I like both the middle and right one. Thoughts?


Hey guys, I decided to go with barge for my subject. I like the idea of a floating junk barge. I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do with composition. Definitely procrastinated on this one.

Arctic Tomb Final?

Hey guys, I did some more work on my piece but I'm still not satisfied with it. Time to move on to B.

A for Archer Final

Thanks for the feedback guys. I think It really made a difference. I pumped up the contrast in areas I wanted the eye to go and softened up edges and toned down contrast in the back. I think this helped give a better initial read. On to B!

Also I changed the format to the original blogger format... I prefer it. what do you guys think?

the Aquarium

Meh... should probably have chairs

Anvil - German with "Chuch Windows"

I am a little bummed I was unable to try this out with my Wacom. Despite that though, I am happy with what came out, just need to raise the bar with the upcoming letter B.

Acrylics + Water Color


So I decided to work on Mr. Bat Ears and somewhat pleased with what I came out with. As I worked on this guy I felt like I wanted to add what type of alien gear he would use or maybe his ship but this is as far as I could get at the moment so I'll call this finished for now. On to the next one!

Sunday, June 24, 2012

Here's what I have so far. I'm not sure if it's done. feedback welcome.

German Anvil

First layer of water color. Need better lighting.

A for Alien

I'm designing an alien! I'm leaning towards possibly a video game protagonist so I tried to create characters that I would like to play myself as well as getting certain designs out of my head to see how much I can push my character design skills. So far I'm liking the bottom row most so I might go with one of those guys.

Arctic Tomb Update

Hey guys, I did some refining and added some things. I had fun working on it so far. Let me know what you think.  
German Anvil with "Church Windows." Need to figure a pleasing setting, and item configuration, but it should be fun to paint the metal texture.

Arctic Tomb lay-in

So here's the first lay in for the arctic tomb. Let me know what you guys think!

Arctic Tomb

Hey guys, here are some thumbnails for the arctic tomb. I like the idea of a tomb being carved into the side of a mountain so I went with that. So far I like the shots that are pulled back more; 1,5 and 6. I'm still gathering reference and I'm going to take it into photoshop. Let me know what you think.

Anyway, Here are some thumbnails exploring silhouette and gesture for now. I think I like the third from the left the most.
