Good times at the Con!

Had a great time at SDCC2011! Met so many really cool people. Just getting the chance to say hello to a lot of artists and writers I really admire was a treat in itself. The creative people in the industry are some of the nicest and coolest people around!


Two of my friends got inspired to put together a sketchbook by next year...maybe I should get on the wagon and show off more of the stuff I've done that I haven't posted here and start collecting odds and ends for a sketchbook myself. Now...where did I put all that 'free time'..... (goes searching...)

SDCC 2011 Business Cards

Going to SDCC 2011 in a few days so I figured I'd better make up a new card to trade with people. One of my favorite things is seeing everyone's cool business card designs. So here's my new one with 2 color variants.

KUNG FU PANDA 2

KUNG FU PANDA 2: THE KABOOM OF DOOM!
(he's riding in "my" rickshaw ;)

The first feature film that I had the chance to work on will be in theaters starting Memorial day weekend 2011! (2 weeks from now!) So this is the only time I'll blurb about the little things I worked on that you might see in the film. Don't blink or you will miss them!

My job is to make gray models look real by painting them and doing techy stuff to them in my magic computer box. I surfaced a bunch of props mostly. You can see some of it in the trailer (Po's bandages, Master Shifu's scroll) Woks,lanterns,ropes,rickshaws,carts,baskets,buckets,backpacks, wagons, drums, instruments, trees, pots, vases, and other things that I can't say because they are part of the plot of the movie :) etc.

"Sooo many signs...." Yep did those too.

The coolest stuff I worked on were the Villains and Kung Fu Masters' weapons.
Swords, Throwing knives, axes, bow and arrows, knives, and the coolest characters' weapon, Master Thundering Rhino's Thundering Hammer. ;)

Digital Figure Painting


This is a figure painting I worked on for about 4 nights after work. I made a progression time-lapse to show how I worked on it, but photobucket isn't letting me post it for some reason...working on fixing that

Sad Girl Painted


Did a painting just so I could mess around with adjustment layers and masks in Photoshop. Also tried out a few new custom brushes that I made. Very cool tools once you get the hang of them.

Space Girl knows Kung Fu!



Wanted to do a character piece from start to finish tonight. Thought I'd save out versions and show my progress as well. This is an update on my wife's super hero she made up "SUNSHINE HAPPY BRIGHTNESS!!!""

TOPGUN VECTORS








A few images I've made from TOP GUN. I was trying out a new style and some vector tools to see what I could do. It turns out vector art is much more difficult and tedious then I like. I'll leave this style to those that enjoy it. Just wanted to give it a try.

Blend Brush- quick smeary paint test



Trying out the new blend brushes in CS5. Haven't done anything in awhile so I thought I'd do a 5min quick paint warm up using the only the blend brush to see what it does.
