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."

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 :)

This is going to be my first year of voting for the American Presidential Election and I cannot be more definite about who I am going to vote for. Ron Paul for President.

For those who would like to hear more about what he stands for, you can check out these great videos on youtube.

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.

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!

This was originally just going to be a quick sketch of the Master Chief's helmet on a blank background. As you can see, I got a little carried away, and this is the result after a week of off and on work.

I hope you enjoy!

EDIT: Some people made the observation the helmet was originally too elongated, which I agreed with. I shortened it down, so it should be more proportional now.

Freshly deployed from a D77-TC Pelican Gunship, Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 prepares to back up the UNSC forces, who are currently engaged in a losing battle against a mighty Covenant invasion fleet.

When the ground commander called in for reinforcements, I bet he didn't think they'd send a Spartan.
