Join the Herd!

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 

Spoiler Alert!
Beyond this point I have posted some final artwork along with preliminary concepts of the game that may spoil some surprises.

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

Dusting off the paints

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.
