I started this painting almost a year ago, and I finally got around to finishing it up. It was within 2 hours of completion, but it was hard to go back to a painting I'd long since abandoned due to other work.
Anyway, it's sort of connected to one of my other paintings, a spiritual successor if you will. I also hope you catch my homage to one of my all time favorite films. Hope you like it!
Anyway, off to Comic Con!
Edit: Coming back to this, I realize I didn't credit a photo I relied heavily on for inspiration, so here's the link to the image. I initially started this as a study, and decided to turn it into something else, otherwise I would've changed around the structure a bit more, oh well!
Hey guys, thanks to your input the other day, I managed to do a visual FX test for the Hayling short/trailer I want to do. This isn't specifically related, it just just me trying a trick in After Effects so I can learn. Got most of the ideas from Video Copilot, which is great.
Anyway, this is basically a still frame that I animated to look like a flyby. I used Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Premiere for the effects and editing. You can see the original image here. This is my first attempt with anything remotely like this, and I'm pretty happy with the results, even though it's pretty basic.
I have some really cool ideas planned, hope you guys like it. Watch it in 720p if you can.
Another image for Molten Monkey International on their new S.K.O. toy line. This guy unfortunately doesn't quite have a name anymore due to some copyright issues, so I'm gonna call him Samuel L. Fishburne.... My client will probably swoop in and correct me with his actual new name, rofl.
Anyway, I worked on this image on and off for quite some time. I tried a whole new process and approach, and I'm pretty happy with it. The matting and background painting took forever, and by the time I was done with it, I hardly wanted to do the guy, haha. Anyway, hope you like it, more soon!
Also, check out *7377s page, he's the creator of the toy line, awesome guy and great friend.
This is the planetscape I made as the backdrop for the space battle image that I'll be uploading as soon as I get the all clear. The main image is for a cool little Asteroids-like multiplayer webgame that's in development called Rawkets.
It's a little rough around the edges here and there, being as I knew I'd be covering a good portion of it up with foreground and midground elements in the final, but it's probably not too noticeable unless you're staring at it full res like I do, rofl.
I just thought some people would like to see it without all the action, and maybe use it as a wallpaper. You can get them by clicking the download link, the sizes I've provided are:
This is one of a bunch of characters I was hired to illustrate for Molten Monkey Toys, who are developing a new action figure toy line that just debuted at the G.I. Joe convention in Providence, Rhode Island this weekend. The toys are being designed by some of the original G.I. Joe guys, which is pretty sweet.
Anyway, if you couldn't tell by the name, this is one of the bad guys, part of the Virus team. I had a lot of fun painting this dude, fleshing out details is always interesting. Hope you like it, more to come soon!
Also, you can check out a video of it here, some of the packaging/prototype stuff, as well as a cool animated video of some of these guys kicking ass. I did some of logos you see during the video too.
Been doing a lot of commission work lately, and I needed to do something quick and relaxing to help loosen me up again.
Probably took around 3 or 4 hours, minus some little tweaks when I was done. I wish I had done it higher res, but then I probably would've spent more time than I can spare on it.
I've always had a soft spot for good space art, but this is really only my second time trying my hand at it. I'm developing some decent techniques, but one of these days, I'm going to give it a solid go and really spend some time on one.
One of nine illustrations commissioned by Ignition Interactive for the Kick Ass comic/movie property which I worked on with `adonihs. I ended up having to do each of these in less than a day back in January, which was a real rush compared to what I normally do, but it was a lot of fun.
In this one, someone accidentally broke a jar of raspberry jam, and it got smeared all over the ground. Cops don't like vandals, but realized it was no big deal, and decided to have some fun and draw chalk people.... I think that's what's going on anyway.
I have a few more of these to submit still, and some newer paintings real soon!
Another visual effects test for the teaser trailer I plan to do for my personal project Hayling. The last one had just about nothing to do with the project, whereas this one kinda does. Don't ask how, cause I won't tell ya!
Anyway, like the last one that you can see here, this was done with all still images and some simple effects work. Just thought I'd share, hope you like it! Watch in in 720p if you can!
