FDR, arguable one of the best presidents of all time. Known for his program "The New Deal" and other such accomplishments, what is not not known is his many victories in battle against many different types of enemies. FDR possessed great power and technology as can be seen from his transforming wheel chair in which he slayed many foes.

In 1752 before Ben Franklin invented Pizza, Gameboy, the iPad2 or Mexican food he was contemplating how to conquer electricity. Being the genius he was he decided go get it at its source, this being Zeus. Strapping himself to a kite, and equipping some homemade lightning claws he ascended through the clouds and into the realm of the Gods to battle it out with Zeus. This is a painting capturing the exact moment the battle started.

“The Man Who Would Not Be King.” by Matthew Spalding, Ph.D. George Washington is one of the most recognized figures in U.S. history. But familiarity breeds contempt. More often than not, Washington is an old painting on the wall – solemn, impersonal and distant – or the subject of childhood stories and nursery rhymes. We all know that he chopped down a cherry tree and had wooden teeth. The actual Washington is much more compelling. We can all see the brilliant flourishes of Jefferson's pen, Madison's constitutional handiwork or the success of Hamilton's economic policies, and that can cause us to overlook or underestimate the magnitude of Washington's achievement. Yet he really was, as Washington's greatest biographer, James Flexner, put it, the "indispensable man" of the American founding. ...And the key ingredient in all of these things was moral character, something that Washington took very seriously and which gave to his decision-making a deeply prudential quality and to his authority an unmatched magnanimity. "His integrity was pure, his justice the most inflexible I have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to bias his decision," Jefferson later observed. "He was, indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a good, and a great man."

George Washington, Draft First Inaugural Address, April 1789: “The blessed Religion revealed in the word of God will remain an eternal and awful monument to prove that the best Institution may be abused by human depravity; and that they may even, in some instances be made subservient to the vilest purposes. Should, hereafter, those incited by the lust of power and prompted by the Supineness or venality of their Constituents, overleap the known barriers of this Constitution and violate the unalienable rights of humanity: it will only serve to shew, that no compact among men (however provident in its construction and sacred in its ratification) can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, that no mound of parchm[en]t can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.”

From George Washington's private prayer journal. "O most glorious God ... Direct my thoughts, words and work, wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the Lamb, and purge my heart by thy Holy Spirit.... Daily frame me more and more into the likeness of thy Son Jesus Christ.... Thou gavest thy Son to die for me, and hast given me assurance of salvation...."

"Cleanse my soul O Lord, I beseech thee, from whatever is offensive to thee, and hurtful to me, and give me what is convenient for me. Watch over me this night, and give me comfortable and sweet sleep to fit me for the service of the day following. Let my soul watch for the coming of the Lord Jesus; let my bed put me in mind of my grave, and my rising from there of my last resurrection; O heavenly Father, so frame this heart of mine, that I may ever delight to live according to thy will and command, in holiness and righteousness before thee all the days of my life."

"Almighty God…I yield Thee humble and hearty thanks that thou has preserved me from the danger of the night past, and brought me to the light of the day, and the comforts thereof, a day which is consecrated to Thine own service and for Thine own honor. Let my heart, therefore, Gracious God, be so affected with the glory and majesty of it, that I may not do mine own works, but wait on thee, and discharge those weighty duties thou requirest of me."

It's really exciting to know that Halo 4 is right around the corner. I have been following the series ever since Halo Combat Evolved came out for the xbox in 2001.

I haven't been reading the books to keep up with the halo universe. Heavily augmented and trained, chief was among one of the last few spartans alive.

Thanks to "spartan-217" for the info, The last spartan III's were on onyx with 5 spartan IIs + Fireteam black team(4) + alice,douglas,jerome + chief


In Halo 3, Cortana put chief to sleep in the end so I really can't wait for the continuation of Chief's legacy. I really hope the new trilogy will live up to the hype. Crosses fingers.

-------------------------

If you guys don't know what the background silhouette depicts, play the first Halo game ;)

More experiments with my custom brushes. Not happy with a lot of them to be honest. I need to tweak and delete a whole bunch. Some are just useless.

Decided to test out the majority of my brush set on this sketch.

Spartans are the shit. I need to make another ODST painting as well, they are bad ass.

Vehicles loosely based on the 1986 NASA NERVA 2 INterplanetary spacecraft design. This piece actually started out as a test of my new Mk II Mars close-up terrain, using Mars Orbital Laser Altimetry Data to deform a geodesic metaform 1/8th sphere. Then I put another (slightly larger) 1/8 sphere over it to create the atmosphere. Then inspiration struck, and this is the result. I all ready had modeled the NERVA 2 vehicle some time ago.

Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 8.5, with touch up in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking a look!

In the mid eighties, a system of cycling spaceships picking up and dropping off OTVs near Earth and Mars was proposed as an efficient system to supply a manned Mars presence. I've shown 3 such OTVs rising in elliptical orbit over Mars, from their initial aerocapture maneuver. 2 Astronauts conduct EVA from the nearer OTV with MMUs. I've tried updating the 80's design with materials for the habitats based on Boeing's ISS modules. This piece was modeled, lit and rendered in Lightwave 7.5c, on a Mac dual 1.2 Gig G4. Thanks to [link] for the Mars bump and color maps, based on MOLA data and Mars Observer images.

The Argosy Spacecraft separate At just under a million miles to Mars orbit insertion. At this point, a series of precisely timed maneuvers occur. The upper section of the 2 part biological and thermal isolation shroud separates, and Reaction Control thrusters fire to distance the ships from the shroud petals. This exposes the 12 unmanned probes that will be deployed into direct entry trajectories to Mars. Four of these will return samples to the orbiting ships, while others will carry specialized rovers and experiments which will be directed from the mission spacecraft once in orbit. These will be released over the next several days in order to put them on precise final paths to touchdown points on Mars. After the probes have been dispatched, the Probe Deck will be jettisoned, exposing each ship's manned lander.

Modeled in Lightwave 10, with touch up and effects in Photoshop.

I’m doing some concept work on this video game project.

Wanna help get it made?

The DeadCoats are Coming

In Halloween, 2011 Neo-Pangea hatched the idea to create the world’s first Flash First Person Shooter, and they called it - DeadCoats. Built as an experiment in under three weeks, it was unleashed to the world. The game instantly received rave reviews and legions of fans demanded more, and it’s not hard to see why.Who wouldn’t want to relive the great American Revolution as founding-father Ben Franklin with a lightning-powered musket, zapping the heads off of DeadCoat zombies?

Now the Neo Pangea crew is trying to take it to the next level,and they’d like your help.

Merry Christmas, and whatever else, everyone! :) This is a piece I've just finally competed for my father for Christmas. One of his and my favorite historical individuals, George Washington. I wanted to depict him in a truly epic way. I first had the idea of depicting him as he was as a colonel in the French/American Indian war, as that is where the most famous of instances with him being shot at and surviving happened. Well, then there was this time the British sharpshooter had him in his sights when he was a General in the American Revolution, but he just felt the need to drop his weapon... At any rate, as a colonel, he was ordered to deliver a message by horseback across the battlefield to his acting general. He did so, but not before surviving two horses shot out from under him and three bullet holes through his clothes -- two through his coat and one through his hat! Needless to say, that's quite the image of a man having his horse shot out from under him and his clothes riddled with bullets, yet still he doesn't waver, presses ever forward, and survives unscathed! I liked the uniform probably better from his colonel days, being an awesome red and blue. But, ultimately, I decided to meld that in with this showing him in his General regalia, leading his men in the Revolution, instead. So, it's a piece more depicting the seminal character and symbol of George Washington now than any one particular event.

My next thought was animating this to music, and I really got crazy ambitious with all of that. First, I've never animated a flash piece before and second, I've never composed a musical score before. I was very rusty on my reading of music, and have only ever played the trumpet over a decade ago in my Elementary through High School days (graduated in 97). However, I have mixed musical scores for films before, and I found that I could work midi through Garageband and also ProTools. I wish I would have started with ProTools, because having to switch back and forth due to Garageband not having adequate ways to share was painful. But, anyway, I was intending to use the Star Spangled Banner as inspiration. This is The George Washington March, as I've now labeled it. *One final master was mixed to give little more separation to the instruments by a friend that offered to do it really quickly, once he heard it. I eventually animated this piece, fighting it tooth and nail because of how large and slow it was, through After Effects, then had to search around crazily to try and get it properly converted to swf. After Effects, let's just say, while it can do it, I wouldn't recommend it for something this large. A 1GB to 5GB flash file also is completely useless. I wound up saving the portion I could get working to an MOV file, editing that in Final Cut Pro, and taking that MOV file and using a converter to make it into a workable swf file. The MOV, I think I will upload to YouTube later. *later is now :)

With all of that together, though, and after 2 1/2 months of composing, photoshoping, and animating (the animation itself didn't take but a night, or two), literally forgoing lots and lots of sleep, exercise, and working sometimes all night and all day (I felt like I was possessed), here I finally have my ode to Washington and a tribute to him for my dad -- the best dad I could ever ask for :)

I hope you enjoy it, too. PS: if you're not American, I hope the piece at least speaks to you also in some way :)

A Lone Spartan stands defiantly against all odds.

_________________

Not sure how much time I spent on this exactly, but completed it over the course of two-ish weeks.

Started out as a pencil line sketch of the Spartan, and the rest was completed in Photoshop CS5 via digital painting.

The piece is inspired by the song of the same name from the Halo 2 (Vol. 2) Soundtrack

Utilized this render for the Covenant CCS-class Battlecruiser in the foreground: [link]


Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy!

Inspired by the song of the same name from the Halo 4 Soundtrack by Neil Davidge.
______________________

The Master Chief gets a rude awakening as he is caught in the middle of a massive engagement between UNSC and Storm Covenant forces over the surface of Requiem.

______________________

This one took a good month or so to complete...Not sure exactly how many hours I put into it, but I wanted to get it done before Halo 4 was released, so I met my deadline.

It is a mixed media piece, utilizing traditional art, digital painting, and photo-manipulation. 90% of the image was completed by digital painting in Photoshop CS5.

Credits to Halopedia, where photos of the UNSC and Covenant vessels were taken from.
