Savage Grenadier

I'm a big fan of the video game Gears of War. So just for practice I looked at already existing concept art for one of their characters to help work on my painting skills. Here are the different stages as I worked through my painting. It's still not quite finished, but I've already put in more time than I wanted to. The developer of Gears of War is Epic Games.

These are a few T-shirt ideas I worked on that never made the cut.


Here are a bunch of random things I've worked on just for fun or practice.

The Sweater Friends

This is some work I did a couple years ago for my friend's band The Sweater Friends.

Speed Paintings

For my Digital Painting class last semester we did a 1 hour speed painting every morning. Some turned out better than others.

The Hobbit

For my Digital Painting class we had to choose a story and then do 4 illustrations from it over the course of the semester. I chose one of the greatest books of all time. J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. You can see big changes in style between these 4 paintings as I'm still learning techniques. These are some of my favorite parts of the story.

Adrian Gatty

This is my portrait assignment for Digital Painting II. I stayed pretty close to my original sketch for the most part. I painted the whole thing in black and white and then gave it a sepia look at the end.

While hiking through the uncharted regions of the Northeast I came across this small fellow. He was systematically shuffling around on the ends of his legs, allowing himself to relocate from overcrowded areas but still kept himself high above the reach of small predators like crabs. I stopped to let him pass by as I could see his intense determination despite his surprisingly slow pace.

Quick speed painting for my Digital Painting class last semester.

So it's been exactly 2 years since my last post . . . that's pretty bad. I'm going to try and post stuff more often. I think I haven't been posting because I've been wanting to wait until I was better but Will Terry was saying there's no reason to not start now. Makes sense. So without further delay. . . Goldfish.

This is a quick digital painting I did for my Digital Painting class this last semester. I remember when I was growing up everyone said that goldfish only have a memory span of about 30 seconds. So these poor little guys won't be able to remember how they got up there.
