A Cold Future II

Here you can see a bit of my process. I started with a rough sketch, added in value, added color overlay, messed with contrast and levels, etc, finished details and highlights, the end.

Environment Sketches

These were incredibly fun. Prisma color markers and micron pen.

Emulation of Mignola and Caldwell

A vampire, after the style of Mike Mignola. Hellboy, created by Mignola, is my favorite comic book character ever.

A future... ninja guy... after the style of Ben Caldwell. Kinda. Turns out I have a pretty similar style to him, so it was hard to break away.

A Vampire

My good friend and fellow artist Jake Wyatt drew a vampire, and remarked to me that it reminded him of something I would draw. I've been meaning to try out a new style so I thought I'd do a spin off of his vampire with my own vampire.

By the way, any vampire that "twinkles" is no vampire in my eyes. The sunlight kills vampires, period.

Hungry Hungry.... Large Animals.

Animal Design

These are for my character design class. As you can see, I did a hermit crab, a frilled lizard, and a bat. This was probably my favorite assignment so far. Goodness I love Flash.

Indus Valley City From a Rooftop.

This is a city in Indus Valley for a project at work. The city is a bunch of ruins now, so I pretty much had creative liberty as to how to make it look. Middle Eastern Cities used to be the most advanced in the world, with indoor plumbing and everything.

Pumpkin Time

We carved pumpkins. It was great fun. Do enjoy.

This is the one Sharon carved (aka I carved) of Dwight K. Schrute. Not the best likeness, but I think it comes across ok. Its a pumpkin... hard medium, y'know?

This one is mine. You fanboys and fangirls may recognize this as the great Hellboy, the best comic book character to ever grace our planet. Go pick up the Art of Hellboy by Mike Mignola, you won't regret it.

The Zoo has Animals.

Went on a trip to the Zoo a bit ago, and I had a blast. I went with my good friend Tyson, and we dragged along our poor wives. The animals have a surprising amount of character, each of them with their own personality. We had a lot of fun drawing and talking to the educator by the elephants, but we had to keep pulling Tyson's kid out of the monkey pit. He's quick for being less than a year old. I kid, I kid, we only had to once.

Shape Characters

In my character design class we did an assignment where we would draw a random shape, then make a character out of them. These were the most successful of my attempts.

Silhouettes, which are oh so popular.

The top ones were so supposed to be based on the "Mad Max" movies, and the bottom ones are Soccer Moms.

He's Alive!!!

I was asked to do some a character design for a fellow student's senior film. Here is the final model, and some faces for personality.

In the Name of Comics

These are some color explorations for a potential comic book.

These are the pencils from one of six pages in a submission that my writer friend and I are trying to push. Publishers? Anyone?

Buddha and Shiva

Another drawing from work. This is part of a storyboard for a course. Why so complex you ask? I want to be able to print them in nonphoto blue and trace them for a specific look. I have a fun job where I get to draw aliens and religious icons all day.

The reference is an 80 foot tall statue in Bodhgaya, India. If you think the original Buddha was fat, do a Google search. He was described as being extremely emaciated (self inflicted as an ascetist) to extremely fit and having a body like unto Michael Phelps. The "fat Buddha" came about when Buddhism gained popularity in China. Some think he was a Buddhist monk, and others think that having great girth symbolized Wealth and Prosperity and was therefore applied to their main religious iconography.

This is a drawing of Shiva, a Hindu god. He has four arms, which is cool. I spent a bit less time on him than the Buddha, but I thought it was kinda fun so I'm throwing it up there.
