Space Ship 38 Line Sketch

I know, it's not Inktober, but that doesn't mean I'm not doodling the rest of the year :)

Inc God Robot 2 Final Battle 1

Inc and Landis are unprepared for the wrath of the second guardian. This is a good example of an image designed for a book, where the middle of the image is left mostly blank so that the painting would work well on a 2 page spread.

Eden Habitat 2

Experiment 2 showing potential designs for "Eden Habitat", merging architecture and nature into a future utopia. This island has been built up into a futuristic castle of sorts, a giant ant hill with people and apartments on the outside, and an interior geofront for industrial purposes. Decided to go with a semi cloudy day, the sunlit with cloud shadows look is always difficult to do, hopefully I managed to make it feel natural.

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 the cloud styles of some of my favorite artists (I always felt my painterly clouds needed work), 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 and not overwork it. Procreate & Photoshop.

CGTrader Neil Blevins Interview

The website CGTrader was nice enough to do an interview with me a few weeks ago talking about art, industry trends, etc. Really impressed with how professional these guys were, for those who don't know, CGTrader is a market place for 3d models and other things 3d artists need. Had a fun time chatting with them. Read it here:

6 Week Class Finished at Sadie Valeri Atelier

Just finished teaching my 6 week class at the Sadie Valeri Atelier in San Francisco. Did a crash course in my workflow for digital concepting from original thumbnails to simple 3d, photomanip and final hand painting. Thanks so much to everyone who attended and all your hard work on the assignments. For those of you who were on the wait list, it's very likely I'll do the class again in the future, so watch this space for news if you're in the bay area and want to attend. And in the meantime, check out Sadie's school, lots of great traditional classes to explore:
