Thought I'd try something different and create this almost entirely with the pen tool and layer styles in photoshop, part from a couple color overlays and filters for texture here and there.
I've never created a gif of my progress before and I have to say it was very interesting to see what little changes happened over the course of coloring it.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of driving down for the Baltimore Comic-Con. I met up with some old friends and we hit the ground running. Traversing the crowds of sweaty fans to meet some very talented artists including Adam Hughes and Mike Mignola. I even managed to uncover something very special, a page from a 1905 collection of Winsor McCay comic strips!
"Little Sammy Sneeze" - by Winsor McCay - 1905

Cheers to Adventure 9.5" W x 13" H
Hi everyone, I usually don't go in for abstract art but I found this image incredibly thought provoking and had to have it, plus my studio space is overflowing with art books but my walls are sadly vacant. So I wanted to share this fantastic print that I purchased from a good friend of mine, Emily Rickard. She's a phenomenal designer and all around sweet person so be sure to visit her society 6 page for iPhone cases and throw pillows and everything in-between and her Etsy page for originals and hand signed Giclee prints. Be sure to enter to win a free signed print here as well!

So my older brother talked me into doing a design your own Jaeger contest that IGN was having for the release of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. I know the contest is for a Jaeger (robot) design but I couldn't help making a Kaiju (monster) too. You can find the other entries here http://microsites.ign.com/pacificrim/
This particular Jaeger is known as Forge and it delivers one hot punch!

Finally Herd of Heroes is finished and out there for all your favorite mobile devices! If you didn't know Herd of Heroes is a mobile game that my brother and I have been working on for nearly eight months for Smith's Dairy. We're super excited to finally be sharing this with you and hope you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
You can find it in the iTunes store, Amazon store and Google play store.
Can be found with these links as well.
here are some in-game screenshots
Beyond this point I have posted some final artwork along with preliminary concepts of the game that may spoil some surprises.
fully unlocked level selection map
final heroes vectored in illustrator
first concept of the herd (face palm)
second pass on Hooved Justice
all animation was done in flash
some hero sprites
saw bot sprite sheet
25 pieces of flare
Dr. Fizz is the herds nemesis and the reason your journey begins.
You can clearly see his progression from his initial concept on the top to his final on the bottom.
Also if you don't play our game then your no longer my friend :p

16x20 oil on board
So I haven't touched my oil paints since college but when my uncle asked me to paint a portrait of a recently deceased colleague of his I couldn't say no. I have never thought of myself as a painter but I think this might of rekindled my interest in painting. Hopefully I'll be posting more traditional work in the future.
