Originally I was going to do this with black outlines, like the last few things I've done... But I decided rather suddenly that I wanted to try a monochromatic, line-less version. I think I'm pretty happy with it!

More Final Fantasy Fan Art

Man, I am on a roll! This occurred to me earlier today. It's a parody of the Portal 2 logo, just with a Final Fantasy angle. Instead of the blue figure, I tossed in the ever-present and totally adorable Cactuar. I realized that the two had very similar poses, so it just came together quickly!

Nothing super exciting, but I thought it would be fun.

Black Mage Painting


One of the things I have most trouble with and need the most improvement on is painting in Photoshop. I generally like the crisp albeit limited painting you can do in Flash, but sometimes I need a little more.

So keeping with the black mage theme, I tried my hand at painting an image in PS. I cheated a little but, by laying down the base color in Flash and then adding texture and tones in PS. I then toyed around with some of the filters, and I think it came out pretty ok. If anything, my biggest gripe is the eyes. I kept them very straight but looking at the finished piece, they seem very unnatural. Ah well, lesson learned! :)

Black Mage

Can you believe that in all my years of playing Final Fantasy, this is the first bit of fan art I have done for it??

Rich Guy Model Sheet

Here's a model sheet for one of the two characters in this little 17 second music video I am working on. I did it in Flash but this will most likely be done on paper. I was going for a very graphic, stylized look.

I Wanna Be A Bear

Hey! I love the song "I Wanna Be A Bear" by Descendents so I wanted to do an image based on it... Kind of.

Not sure if I like the paper texture, so I might change that.

Baaaad Times At Fable High Storyboards

Here are some storyboards I did a few months back. I was to take a fable, in this case, The Wolf And The Lamb, and board it anyway I wanted, as long as the moral and characters were true to the original. So, I took it and made it a contemporary high school comedy type of a deal. I am really happy with the end result. Maybe one day I'll animate it too!

I was just doodling and thinking of Joe Murray's Frog In A Suit cartoon, and this is what happened.

Unused Caricatures


So I had to caricature someone at work this week. I have a tough time with it, so I had a few of the talented folks I work with show me some pointers. Ultimately, I ended up going with something very similar to what one of the artists drew, so here i a handful of unused ones that I did. It was a challenge for sure, but it was nice to explore things I don't usually pursue!

Unused Designs

Hi there!

Today I bring you some unused designs that I sketched up for work.

I drew this bird up and ultimately I had to cut him. Luckily I can use him for another bit of animation. The final design is a bit different, and once I can show stuff from work, I'll post him.

And as a bonus, because Ian Merch pointed out that today is Draw A Dinosaur Day, here's an unused dinosaur design.

The final is not an Apatosaurus, but it still has that same stupid face. Though, I tweaked it a bit to make him look a little confused. :)

Why do we have to argue about something as trivial as fonts?

Tank Color Comp

Happy New Year!

One of my resolutions was to be much more active with this blog this year. I want to go back to doing at least one update a week. So here's the first update for 2011!

This is just a quick sketch / color comp for a drawing I was doing this afternoon. I've been recently playing Valkyria Chronicles (Which features a tank) and reading Dragon Ball (Whose creator, Akira Toriyama, sometimes draws personal sized planes, cars, tanks, etc.) so I was inspired to do something along those lines.

I will probably clean it up in Flash and do a different paint job, who knows. Enjoy!
