Quick Character Design

Quick character design before bed. He's based on every coach I've ever had for every sport I've ever played.

Last Painting

One more painting...


Here's another painting. I gotta stop doing these different styles two at a time and then moving on..

Quick Painting Before Bed

Started sketching a little too late and got some lines that were working for me. Had to paint it up. I'm not ashamed that I had Black Eyed Peas on loop while I was doing this too. G'night.

Round Headed Boy 2

Wasn't entirely happy with this one so I made a few tweaks. Added some wear to the hat, gave him a neck and made his hands a bit smaller. I also gave him a better mouth expression and put the eyelid on his eye that I'd forgotten.

Round Headed Boy

Here's another painterly design I did. Not a monster this time. Well ... I suppose that depends on how you look at it.

Another Painterly Monster

Here's another one...

Painterly Monster

I've seen this painted style kicking around a lot more recently. I know it's in every 'Art of...' book that Pixar releases, so I thought I'd give it a go and see if I could do it. I'm really happy with the amount of character you get out of it. I'll be doing more of these for sure.

Smoking Zombie - Final

I added some more highlights and put a matte around the image. Might make a good poster, I dunno.

Here's an old piece of art I did a few years ago that I liked but it's kind of dated now so I fixed it up.

Old Art That Holds Up

I was looking through some old backup CD's and came across a few gems. These are all from around 2005.

Angry Birds

It's been a long time coming, but I finally got every star on every level of Angry Birds.

This is the cover for a comic book a friend of mine Cory Skaaren developed. We started doing the comic a couple years ago but then got away from it. I wanted to get this much of it done at least..

Quick Character Design

Here are a couple of characters I'm working on. Didn't get through them like I wanted to. This is the last of my holiday artwork. Back to doing freelance stuff that I can't show.

Ol' Illustrative Style

I got nostalgic for the style I used to illustrate in a few years ago so I whipped up this piece. I remembered why I don't do too many like this one any more. There's not a lot of actual artistic creativity that goes into it. It's more tricks of the trade to make it look good. That being said, this is the most marketable style I've had as far as illustration work goes.

And here's the original sketch:

I might do an opposite to this with a guy on the other side.
