The Black Knight

This is a design I did for Atari's remake of Warlords.  I showed some of the process below.  I wanted him to be shiny and Darth Vader-ish, but still somewhat robotic looking.  In retrospect, he looks a bit too much like the war machine dudes, but it was purely accidental.  I liked the hooded guys, but they didn't get picked.  Such is the process. My buddy Dave Peixoto did most of the concept art for the game, and it turned out looking pretty cool.

Oh and Logos.

Europa Trooper and Speeder

Here's a current WIP.  Suit and speeder designed for exploration of Europa.  Having discovered a small colony of sentient life on the ice moon orbiting Jupiter, technology was immediately developed to explore the moon.  It is known that Europa has a liquid ocean beneath the outer ice layer, heated by Jupiter's tidal gravity, and a tenuous oxygen atmosphere.  The pressurized suit has a powered intake which pulls oxygen to the reserve tanks to be consumed over time.  Suit also includes water extraction kit and ice gear.  

Weapons have been deemed necessary for the expedition as the behavior of the newly discovered colony was not yet known.  

When they came to us, this equipment became more important than we could have known.

Speed Paintin's

Couple of quick lunch sketches which I'm trying to do daily.  Gonna start doing some thumbs and character sheets soon as well.

Bit of a WIP.

Kael having killed Meka in anger, thus shattering his incubating armor.  It's a long story.  Need to simplify... Fix some stuff.

Hail to the Chief, he's the Chief and he needs hailing.

343 Industries recently announced a teaser for Halo 4: 

This was all done before I signed on, but I thought it was pretty neat.

Unrelated note:  Personal sketch dump coming soon.

Kung Fu Panda 2 DS Concepts

So at Griptonite Games I worked a bit on some concepts for the arenas in the game.  It's an rpg style game that takes place after the movie, and you're rounding up wolves and other baddies.  They were super fun, but they're pretty derivative. I didn't have a ton of time for them, so they are "first shots", and therefore mediocre.  Don't care, posting them anyway.

bit of news.

Today was my first day at 343 Industries, the company now handling the Halo intellectual property. There are some truly amazing artists there, including some of my personal heroes, and I am extremely lucky to have an opportunity like this.  It's an absolute dream come true for me to work on a project for this franchise. I can't really say much else, other than thanks to those who have helped me along the way.

tooting my horn.

Little article on Age of the Dragons:

Some interesting images in there.  I helped with the design of the dragon, costumes, and the Pequod, shown below.

More Vehicle Concepts

Couple variations of an idea.  I'm going to add some value to these at some point.

Vehicle WIP

Had an idea for a tank like vehicle . The idea would be that it would have wheels for speed, but in more rugged territory its legs are somewhat articulated to allow for some climbing and walking.  The tires are more wide and rounded to allow for rotation against the ground as the legs search for grips.  Might do a few more sketches then finish one.

Enviro WIP.

Trying a new approach to Environment design.  We'll see.

Age of the Dragons Concept Art

 This is some concept I did for a movie called Age of the Dragons. It's essentially Moby Dick, but steam-punkish medieval with dragons.  I posted a trailer a while back. It has Danny Glover and Vinny Jones, thought it's a fairly low budget film.  Since it has been released in Britain, I thought I'd post some of my art and sketches for the project.  I lost some of it in a computer crash, unfortunately, but here is what I have.


Ahab's daughter, I forget her name.



A little fan art.

Speedpaint: Meadow

Speed painting is a great way to improve... speed. And stuff. Just pretend I said something inspirational.

Topic: Meadow, 1 hr

Troll... or Gorilla-Dog?

Well, it's a troll. But it is inspired both by the noble gorilla and the loyal dog. That being said, he would probably eat you, given the chance.

I did some portraits of Grandpas for Christmas gifts. The first is my Grandpa, and the second is Sharon's.
