Here's a value/color study I did recently. I was actually studying Chris Rahn's value/palette to be specific. This was really fun to do, and will most likely end up getting finished. Hope you dig it!

This is an OLD one that I revised recently. I thought the original had potential but it had some real weak spots. I'd still like to refine this some more but I probably won't for a while and I just wanted to post this already. Hope you dig it!

I don't really know what to call this one so I went with that cheesy title. I just finished this up and am ready to have my peers tear it apart! (hopefully) This was SO much fun, especially suggesting all the buildings in the background and the clouds. I also had a lot of fun with the palette. But I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Not much going on lately, just work. But I had a little time the other night after finishing a page and knocked this out. It's definitely a speedpaint. I'd like to finish it but it most likely won't happen so I figured I'd post it as is.

Took some time to do a warm up piece today. I've been wanted to paint something from my MMA Reference folder for ever. Any time I do a study, it's always of a static figure. So I wanted to do something in action. Hope ya dig.

I painted this one during whatever breaks and free time I've had over the last couple days. This was a lot of fun and LONG over due. I've been wanting to paint Clownface for EVER! I'm sure I'll revisit him again in the future. Hope ya dig it.

Here's a super quickie I did last night before going to sleep. I was laying down and this image popped in my head so I had to get it down quick before it was gone. This'll definitely be painted... as soon as I've got the time again.

So I actually painted it! And I'm really glad I did. This one started off very rocky, but eventually I hit a point where everything started falling into place and I was having a blast. "Infernus" came to mind when I was titling this piece, not realizing it's tie to Black Metal Gorgoroth's guitarist Infernus. But now I think the title's even more fitting. Hope ya digs!

So I had a couple free days over the weekend and decided to finish up a personal piece I started a little while ago. There are still a couple loose ends I wanna tighten up, but I've been lookin at this too long. I'll come back later with a fresh eye. Hope ya dig it.

Just saw this on Fantasy Flight Games' site yesterday. This card was a LOT of fun to do. Kinda quick and dirty, I had to get it done in a day. Every once in a while it actually works out. Even though there's a lot of really loose elements, I enjoy the image as a whole and I'm glad FFG did as well. Hope ya digs!

I just got my comp copies of this card today and figured I'd post it. I actually did this one almost a year and a half ago. I had to do this one really quickly because I had procrastinated for so long due to some other work I was doing at the time but I'm still happy with the overall image. There are a couple of loose ends I like to clean up, but for a quick turn around I guess it's not too bad.
They actually used it for their packaging. That's always fun :-P
Here's the packaging

I knocked this quickie out while my daughter was napping this morning. Extremely random, and WAY outside my comfort zone but a lot of fun. Truly a Digi-Doodle. More to come.
In hindsight, this pretty much looks like a robotic Xenomorph. Oh well...

Here's a new personal piece I did. This is kinda a before and after. I started this before going to bed one night and eventually took it to what I considered a finish. But after posting it a couple of other places and talking with some friends (especially Reau) I realized it needed more work. I hope you consider the new one to be an improvement. Either way I hope you enjoy the before and after.

Life has been incredibly busy lately with work, family and TAXES!!!! Booooooooo! Anyway, I'm waiting for my girlfriend to take care of some business so I can run a few errands. While I'm waiting I'm taking five minutes to do a quick update. I hope you dig some of it :-P
Here are the last batch of cards released for Alderac Entertainment Games' Legend of Five Rings. I'm in the process of revising the top two for my portfolio. I liked those pieces a lot but they just weren't finished enough. They still need a little more love.
Here's some of the recent stuff I did with Rob Liefeld. The Die Hard cover was a super quickie and it MAY be reworked a little before print, but I'm not sure if we still have time.

It's ironic that my last post was the birth of my daughter because that's where my free time has gone. And I gotta say it's amazing! She's growing so fast (I know everyone says that, but it is unbelievably true). I'll post some new pics of her soon if anyone's interested. As for posting art well... still waiting for a lot of it to be published before I can post, still working with Rob Liefeld on a lot of projects I'll post some links for those, and I unfortunately haven't had a millisecond for personal work which makes me really sad. It's something I have to MAKE time for in the near future before I forget that this isn't just a job :-P I hope there's still one person out there still checking in vain for a new post. It's Easter which means dinner with friends and family bit I promise within the next day or two I'll throw up a few illustrations I did recently. Hope everyone has a good holiday!
Here's a link to the latest project with Liefeld.
CBR - Armageddon Now: Jada
And some links on some articles about the first book.
CBR - Amageddon Now Unleashed!!!
And a preview of the first book with the not so awesome cover.
