and now for something completely different

so, here's a flash illustration test I took for a local company a couple months ago...I got an offer, but had prior obligations at the time and unfortunately had to decline...they gave me a loose storyboard sketch and a fully realized example of an existing background illustration. using those two resources, I had to produce a finished piece that matched the style, mood, and color palette...needless to say, not my go-to style, but I guess versatility is key...storyboard sketch on top, my interpretation below it.

weird kreatures: first post: the wendigo

so, this is the first of what I hope to be a series of mythical beasts and night creatures...the idea is to create my own images as much as possible, without referencing pre-conceived notions/other artistic here's number one:

wendigo - (in the folklore of the ojibwa and other indians) a cannibalistic giant, the transformation of a person who has eaten human flesh.

pizza breath

some more self-induced torture... have been trying to stay sharp by drawing complex facial expressions with semi-ambiguous emotions from, really difficult to capture subtle nuance rather than slap on the standard happy/sad/surprised eyebrows...not the most creative subject matter, I know, but solid exercise nonetheless. all comments welcome...

memorial tattoo

another design for shajn, this one a sketch of a memorial tattoo for a couple friends who passed away last year...some quick grayscale thrown in to give it some form.

bone deth

these are some sketches of potential t-shirt designs for my buddy shajn's clothing company bone deth. two of them were older designs that I tweaked and updated and one is all fresh...
