'Hero City' panels

'Hero City' pitch samples, work-in-progress. So many side-project graphic novel pitches...

Tick-Tock Sleep Tight

Kid's room art, work-in-progress. Based off the crocodile (or alligator?) from Peter Pan.

December '14 Sketches

More sketchbook material.
 Reading Acts, a quick sketch break helps me absorb and process some of the info as I take notes in preparation for plotting out a roadmap for the upcoming series that will take Redemption Church through most of 2015. FYI, that's the apostle Paul, not Jesus.
 'Black Friday'.
 Meeting notes. Fellow Red 5 Studios game devs: Beaumont and Mallory. #firefall
 More #firefall meeting notes.
 'Western Dracula'?
 'The Adventures of Shalom and the Purple Pony'. Little piece based off the bedtime stories I've been making up for my 2 year-old daughter.
'King of the Forest'.

Inktober 2014

Finally uploading my #inktober sketches to this blog... I didn't have time this year to do one for every day, but I did have a lot of fun anyway.
 'Let the adventure begin!'
 'Over the hills and through the fields'
 'To GRANDM.O.T.H.E.R.'s house we go.'
 'My, what a deep voice you have.'
 'Choo-choo chicken'. 2 year-old daughter's request.
 'Spider boat.' 2 year-old daughter's request.
 'Palace Guard'.
 'Dinosaur Train'. We're watching a lot of this show at our house lately.
 'Lady of the Green Kirtle'. Character from 'The Silver Chair', part of the Narnia Chronicles by CS Lewis.
 'Swimming Skeleton'. 2 year-old daughter's request.
 'Escaper'. 2 year-old daughter's request. I think she meant 'escape artist'.
 'Robot Cleaner'. 2 year-old daughter's request.
'King of the Moon'.

Some 'Blood Guilt' Panels

A fun post-apocalyptic, alt-history story. Here are some WIP (work-in-progress) shots all sort of collaged together. An exciting story and a lot of neat locations to explore. Hope to be able to talk more about it soon!

So far, I've done all the art on this project in PS w/ my Wacom Intuos pad, which has both saved me a ton of time and given me some major headaches in drawing simple things... like circles. I think if this whole graphic novel/illustration career picks up I will need to switch to something like the Wacom Cintiq or one of the knock-off competitors, so I can actually draw what I see instead of having the tablet in my lap. It has served well for now and works great for speed-painting and loose rendering, but makes tight details and rendering things like straight lines difficult.

Lighthouse study

Trying some new brushes in photoshop. Happy w/ some of the watercolor textures. Feels like the cover to an old Hardy Boys novel.
