My second DFA painting. It's a WWII secret mission where one soldier took on the Nazi's secret weapons. Since no one heard of this battle it looks like the soldier must have done his job!

Here's a new design I did for my Nautilus. I'm making other views of it and might model it in 3D if I ever find time.

digital painting for my Drawing for Animators class. Excessive use of pixie dust is always awesome! ...never again.

Final character design for Ned Lands the space fighter pilot. His ship's name is the Harpoon and he's a hunter of sorts, so that's the connection to the original character. I'll proabably color this again in illustrator to get a different look.

An old man in the rain. Just practicing 5 minute quick drawing with my wacom.

Some rough thumbnails just to see various designs and get warmed up. The more finalized character on the bottom right is the one I think I am going to use.

Here are some rough pilot ideas or maybe infantry guys.I don't know yet.










Character Faces just for fun














early Ned, Nemo, Professor concept sketches

Got an itch to get started creating my pilot character that is replacing Ned the harpooner. Looking for an old school feel that I'll drop into a space fighter maybe.

Did some more work on a ship design. This might be the Battleship Abraham Lincoln instead of the Nautilus

[2010 Update] This project I did a few years ago finally was constructed. A few modifications were made to the final design, but it looks pretty simiar to the rendering I made up from some CAD schematics.





Did a little rendering for some Architects recently.
More of these to come in the future hopefully.
Just starting this blog so I thought I' throw some of my older stuff up just to fill the void. Most of this was done in 2006 while I started to learn how to use Painter. I haven't touched it since last summer. Computer Animation classes are keeping me busy. More to be posted later.

One of my earlier experiments in Painter. Pirates of the Caribbean was coming out around that time. :)



Turns out this was the doodle that led to my whole thesis 4 years after I did this...
