Rock Bot 10,000

A robot wrought simply to rock. As proven by his fire hair, built in shades, and a deep love of cigarettes.
Drawn in ink, colored in Photoshop.

Ownage Jones Vs. The Snake Bohemoth

This is Ownage Jones. Rock legend by night, hunter of mythical beasts by night. Sleeps during the day.
Drawn in ink, colored in Photoshop.

Alien Landscape

A matte painting of an alien world.
Done entirely in Photoshop.

Sitting in the Park

Some dudes. Sitting in a park.
Done in ink and watercolor, additional coloring done in Photoshop.

Awesome Kicks

A silhouette exercise. Trying to see how much information can be conveyed with simple shapes. And that is totally me doing those awesome kicks.
Done in watercolor.

House of Usher

Inspired by the Fall of the House of Usher. Tried to make it look like it was from an old horror comic or something.
Done in ink, then colored in Photoshop.

The Adventures of Super Lincoln

So here's an image of ol' Honest Abe wrecking a car. It was totally justified, as it was being driven by the Enemies of America (tm). I'm sure you can look at this and find all sorts of political subtext, but the fact of the matter is, Abe Lincoln throwing a car into a rock makes me laugh. This is of course a recreation of the iconic first appearance of Superman.
Done in marker and ink. Sadly the scan messed with some of the colors.

Creature Creation

Character sheets for a creature design. It's a combination of a dog, a cat and a bull.

A sculpture of the creature. During the sculpting process a few changes were made to the anatomy in an attempt to make it look slightly more realistic. Most notably, the torso has been stretched, and to a lesser extent, the neck and head as well.
Most of the creature is made up of a wire frame wrapped in aluminum foil for density. Only a slight layer around the creature is made up of Super Sculpey.

3D model of the creature, done in 3D Studio Max.

Jacket Girl

A pencil drawing I did quite some time ago. The reference was from a magazine ad, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was for. If I had to guess I would say jackets. Or maybe skin cream.

Run Away

A storyboard I did using my friend as the model.
Done with markers and pencil.
If you look closely at the dark figure chasing him, you can see he is wearing a crown. I almost did a seventh panel which would show that he was being chased by The King. You know, the scary guy from the Burger King commercial.

Inside the Mountain

A painting done of a collage I created with magazine clippings.
I always thought it kind of looked like an album cover.
