Mothership At Sunset Rough
Quick painting inspired by all of the cities in the clouds from my childhood. Started out as a painting exercise, trying to emulate some of the rough cloud styles of some of my favorite artists, had so much fun that I kept adding elements until I ended up in a different spot than where I originally intended to go. Tried to keep this one rough and painterly. Procreate & Photoshop.
Half Moon Troop Transport Rough
Rough spaceship painting. Tried to keep it rougher than my usual rough, but it's always just too temping to add more and more details and tweaks. Inspired by a tree hopper insect, the spaceships of star wars, and a half moon.
Smash Giant 2
A giant robot I designed for a short film code named "Smash" my wife is working on. The simple 3d model was passed to her to begin previs / layout, then I painted this concept of the final modeling and texturing of the robot over top of the lowres 3d model. When the film reaches a point where it'll need a final model, I'll replicate the concept in full 3d. Inspired by the original transformers, many older animes such as Mazinger Z, Gundam, Patlabor, and of course the more modern Pacific Rim.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. Raised in Canada on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I began painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into the computer, making 3d graphics and painting in 2d digitally. Professionally, I've created art for animated features, live action, videogames, TV, ride films and album art for companies like Blur Studio, and Pixar, where I currently work as a Technical Director.
