So, I painted this picture of myself. I haven't really painted anything for myself for a while, so I decided this break was a good time for me to do that. Plus, I've decided to do this at the end of every year to sort of track where my art is going. Enjoy!

For character design, we got to do this really fun exercise: finish a character by using form, shape, and line. I'm not usually inclined to animal characters, so I thought I would challenge myself to finish one. Enjoy!

Man, I love Breaking Bad. I felt the need to do a little fan art, so here it is! So stoked to find out what happens this last season.
Don't do drugs, kids. Drugs are so bad.

Hey guys, it's been awhile since I've posted here. But now that I just finished school (for now), I'll have more time to post here.
I've been playing through the Legend of Zelda games, and I felt the need to do some fanart. The Windwaker is one of my favorites, so I figured I's start there. I just love Toon Link! I've done two versions: one in full color, and another for a zine some people and I are doing.

This was done for one of my illustration classes. For this assignment, we had to pick a visual cliche from a list and incorporate it into an illustration. I chose cloud. My first thought is that clouds could look like brains (maybe?), so I did a bunch of thumbnails where a dude's brain was replaced with a cloud, kind of like an x-ray view. But then I thought that the clouds coming out his head would be more interesting, so I went with that, even though the cloud idea kind of turned more into smoke. Also, I keep looking at this and thinking 'Harry Potter'. Don't know if that's good or bad...
For this, I decided to do a basic painting in acrylic so I could get some cool textures. Then I added some details digitally.

Recently I've been working on the illustrations for a game called Mages. We're doing a Kickstarter campaign starting in April! If you want to keep an eye out for this, please feel free to check out a like the facebook page! There will be updates about the game along with some artwork in progress. It's going to be great!
This is a younger mage, a prodigy if you will. He's the youngest mage of the group, and he's got a lot of talent.

For this assignment, I decided to do an illustration based off of The Snow Queen. this is a scene near the end of the story where Gerda finds Kai in the Snow Queen's ice cave. The Snow Queen has told Kai that he can only escape and receive and pair of ice-skates is he can solve the puzzle and spell out the word 'eternity'. There's a whole lot more to the story, so if you want to know more about it, you can read the summary here.

Here's Hansel and Gretel! Figuring out the composition for this one was really tricky, but I think I got pretty close to what I was going for. I did a lot of research for the clothing/trees/house for this one, but I don't know how much it paid off, haha. I decided to have it take place in the late 1600's early 1700's in Germany, so I tried to research stuff from that time period.So there you have it!

I finally got around to taking pictures of some of my figure drawings from last year. It actually shocked me how much my figure drawings improved after taking this class with Robert Barrett. All of these are about 2-3 hour poses except the 4th and the 6th. Here's to constantly improving!

This semester, I'm working hard to make myself to finished illustrations that look finished and have backgrounds and all of that great stuff. So I've decided to illustrate fairytales/other stories where I can use my artistic style to recreate story moments in those stories. So here's my first fairytale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Here ya go!
