Reese and Benson

     I painted this image for my sister in law for Christmas. My wife's family draws names every year and I drew her sister's. Her two children dressed up as Tinkerbell and Peter Pan for Halloween and I thought it would be fun to do a painting of them. Since we aren't going to be with them for Christmas she has already opened it. Enjoy!

The Wellspring, a Visual Development Process

     My book, “The Wellspring, a Visual Development Process” is a compilation of all of the work that went into the creation of each of the images in my previous post, plus a few others. In it you will find the story behind the project, many of my thoughts, impressions, and inspirations as the project went on, as well as descriptions of each step in the process.

Here is a sample of what is found within the book. If you wish to purchase a copy for yourself you can do so at the following link:

BFA Show: 3D Model of Azag Xul

     In the entertainment industry today there is an immense demand for artists that are skilled in 3-D applications such as Maya, 3-D Studio Max, or Zbrush. For that reason I have also included a 3-D model of my characters in my project.

 

     Since the video uploaded super small, here are a few images that are found in the video.



BFA Show: The Wellspring

     For the past 2 semesters I have been working tirelessly on a project called the Wellspring. For my project I wanted to emulate the type of work that would normally be seen in the conceptual phase of a video game or animation production. This body of work, including the process work found in the book I will discuss, is intended to showcase my imagination and my ability to come up with unique characters, props, environments, and creatures.
    I have always been inspired by the type of artwork found in the “art of” books that accompany movies and video games. Through this project I set out to create my own “art of” book of sorts. I wanted to be able to showcase all of the development that goes into each aspect of the project, all the sketches and thumbnails, as well as the finished pieces.

    My book, “The Wellspring, a Visual Development Process” is a compilation of all of the work that went into the creation of each of the images shown below, plus a few others. In it you will find the story behind the project, many of my thoughts, impressions, and inspirations as the project went on, as well as descriptions of each step in the process.

    I feel that I have only been able to scratch the surface of this world that I have created but, I hope that through the work presented, I can inspire and leave you wanting more. As you take the time to look through my project, I hope that you are able to enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed creating it.


If you wish to read a full description of each of these images and the process of how they came to be stay tuned for a post about the book, which will be for sale on blurb.com.

Collaborating is Fun.....

     I have a friend who is an amazing character designer and draftsman and I asked him to draw something for me so I could paint it. Above is my painting.

     Above is the original sketch done by the amazing Randy Bishop. Randy's blog can be found by clicking here.

June Cover

     Recently I was given the great privilege of painting the cover for the Friend magazine. The Friend is a children's magazine produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was a blast to work on. Enjoy!

I'm Back :)

     Hey guys. Sorry for the long absence. Contrary to popular belief, I am still around :) I had a blast working for Picture Plane Imaging again these past few months but, due to the nature of the job I haven't been able to post anything. However,  I am now back in school and will be able to post stuff regularly again.
     I finally found a little time to work on this piece again. Enjoy!

Sorceress

     I haven't had much time to do any personal stuff lately. I've been all kinds of busy with my non-postable stuffs. Anywho, here is a sketch that I started during a weekly drawing session that I have with some art buds. If I have time I will finish it. Enjoy!

Big Eyed Girl

     I've been pretty busy with doing freelance stuff (that I can't post)and  I haven't painted anything just for fun in a while. This started out as a sketch that I thought had some potential and I ended up taking it all the way to finish. It was fun! Enjoy

Steampunk Wizard poses



     These were extra, super rushed to get them in on time. They could use quite a bit of finessing but for the most part I'm happy with how they turned out. Enjoy!

Steampunk Wizard finished

     I've had a lot of fun with this character. I've also had a lot of frustration with this character, but mostly fun. Here is a render of my character in a basic pose. I am in the process of rendering out a couple of different versions of the character in different lighting/different poses. I'll post those soon. Enjoy!
