I finished painting what was a loose colour sketch for the arc sketch club. I painted out the pencil outlines, defined the background a little, and added some more detail all around. I also added in some lighting effects to make the scene more interesting and fun to work on.

This is the second in my series of Amazons images. After tones of sketching I finally settled on a composition and started painting. It was a struggle to get the lighting to work and all the characters to fit together, but I think the final image turned out alright.

Here is my latest photoshop painting, featuring an epic battle between a sea monster and some amazon warriors. This one started as a small doodle and lead to several stages of more finished drawings and colour sketches. The final image is a bit more finished then my last few paintings, but I tried to keep the style fun and cartoony. I have a second version posted on my CG talk portfolio page with a tighter cropping of the central figures and reduced background:

Here is a new painting I have been working on, based on the comic character Red Sonja. It started out as a colour sketch but I kept adding more detail and polish, and even some texture overlays. It was fun painting the various light and water effects, and trying out some new things.

This is a quick painting I did over the past two days, based on the Samus character from Metroid. I had some trouble figuring out how to light the image, and I settled on a spotlight effect that is coming from off screen. I'm not sure if it makes sense, but it was fun to paint

Here are a bunch of new images, two of which are re-workings of older drawings for my portfolio. The three monsters and knight where done as character and colour designs, rather then as a finished painting (hence the lack of proper backgrounds). I inked them both on paper and did the rest in photoshop. The spy-girl image was painted in a couple days, using a simple two-style colour. It was fun to start and finish an image before I got sick of working on it.

This painting is re-designed version of drawings I made way back in 2006. I pitched an idea for a television series based on these kids that fly around on old style airplane flight packs, but I had no luck. I worked out the planes better in this version, and tried to render the characters in a fun and colorful style. If I have some time this summer I think I will to model one or both of these kids for a short film project.

These are new photoshop paintings featuring a sexy sci-fi girl in a shinny sci-fi suit. I exaggerated the highlights and blew out spots on the armor and body to suggest futuristic materials. The background is a mash up of abstract brushwork and color fades. I tried out numerous color schemes for this image, unable to settle on one I really liked, these are my two favorite versions.

This is my second stab at the same painting (something I do not do very often). My first attempt was painted over a loose pen sketch and did not turn out very well. This new version has a much more refined pencil sketch as its base, an expanded composition and improved character posing. I've only begun to paint the image, starting with a quick colour fill and then some rendering to plan out the volumes and shapes. The next stage will be to paint in the light and shadows, and then to figure out what to do with the background.

I am starting to put together a new portfolio and I realize I don't have many finished images to show. I also noticed some older drawings and paintings that I thought where good ideas but where not well executed. So I thought I might take a few of my favorites and re-work them to be more presentable. Hopefully I will get to painting them in the very near future.
