Similar Deviations
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!

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 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.

Also, thanks to `adonihs for the input.

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!

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:

1024x768
1280x1024
1440x900
1600x1200
1680x1050
1920x1200
2560x1600


Also, here are the ship sketches and renders for the main image coming soon:

Started as a cloud study that I was doing in my down time, but as I kept working on it I realized it could be a lot cooler, so I sci-fi'd it up!

Hope you guys like it! Also, I snuck one of my favorite ships into the painting, I'll let you guys figure out what it is. And thanks to `adonihs for his input on it!

P.S. Please click download to see the full resolution.

Update: I now have a blog for things regarding Hayling! Check it out here!

My new personal project: Hayling. I'm aiming for it to be a complex narrative and hope to tell it in a unique format, probably some sort of hybrid of a graphic novel/comic/art book, as well as straight up illustrations with clues and hints to the storyline and characters.

I don't want to reveal too much right away, because the progression is going to be fairly complex and involved with twists and reveals, but the general concept is this:

A group of complete strangers find themselves in a precarious position, trapped inside the walls of an enormous hi-tech facility, in some unknown, yet familiar, location. With strange marks on their bodies and no memory of how they got there, they work together and traverse the compound looking for an exit. But they soon begin to realize there's much more to their plight than they initially thought. Each passing moment presents not only more questions, but deadly challenges and startling discoveries of things that shouldn't even exist.

But as hours turn into days, the group becomes more desperate--their paranoia almost unmanageable. They struggle with the increasing feeling that whoever or whatever is orchestrating this rat maze has much bigger plans for them. As they continue forward, hanging onto their last shreds of hope, the unexplainable occurrences and bizarre happenings eventually lead them to one question that should give them all the answers they need. What is Hayling?

This is part one basically, of up to three parts. I understand the initial concept might sound a little cliched, but once you see some of the artwork I plan for it, you'll see that it's quite unique. Most of the really interesting and meaty stuff I can't reveal without destroying plot details, but that'll all come later!

I hope to get some conceptual pieces done for it soon to give you guys more of a visual cue for the story. And don't worry, it'll have plenty of sci-fi elements.

Anyway, I hope this whets your appetite somewhat. The project is still in the very early stages, but I'm writing up a storm for it and I'm really excited.

This is one of the lead bad guys on the Virus team, called Fracture. This one was a lot of fun to paint, I think I did it while re-watching Season 5 of Lost. The background is partially matte painted, hope you like it!

Having a really shitty day, and was going through some of the paintings that I've left halfway done. Here are a few, in various levels of finish, all cropped pretty tight. Some are super rough and in layout still. Maybe I'll get around to them soon, I have other ideas as well.

Anyway, today ended a chapter in my life, and now its time to focus on my art. Here's to the rest of the year and hopefully clearer skies.

To scraps soon.
