Conté crayon on paper.

Gettin' Whimsy Wit it

I did this little illustration for an upcoming Vaudeville/Burlesque show:
It was a quick favor that I only spent a couple hours on, including handwriting the title and doing the layout.
I sourced a photo (NSFW) of one of the lovely performers in the show who also does modeling and turned her into a mermaid.

Hellgate Environment

This "concept art" blog has been pretty heavy on the life drawing for a while, so I figured I should post some actual concept art.

It's not any new, shiny, hotness, but it's something.  A piece I did for Hellgate back in 2008 that I never posted:

Lara Croft Concept Art

This is the final design of Lara Croft for Tomb Raider: Underworld. It's been a couple years since the game came out now and I realized I never posted it. There was lots more development for this character, but this is the final one we landed on. Maybe I'll post more of the development concepts I did later if anybody is interested.

Unreal Tech Demo

Here is something I worked on recently. Congrats to the super talented mofos I work with at Epic Games on pushing what's possible in realtime rendering using the Unreal Engine! This is a little glimpse of the future of the game industry, showing the level of ingame graphics developers will hopefully be able to accomplish on the next generation of consoles. Check it out here:

I designed the badguys and the hobo they are beating up, as well a bunch of the signage and some other random stuff.

...and here is a video in which IGN breaks down some of the new tech and features we implemented in the Unreal Engine if you are interested in that geeky stuff and want to know what's under the hood :)

Color keys

Well, I hit a year since my last post and I figure that's pretty unacceptable, so I dug up something old that I haven't posted before to keep the ol blog alive. Just a little color key series for Hellgate: Tokyo before Flagship Studios imploded. The idea here was to break up the monotonous, desaturated, dingy brown palette that dominated the original enviros with some more colorful areas and *gasp* some living plant life.

Just another quick "Colors" painting on my ds

I did this quick little painting on my Nintendo ds when I was waiting for the coals to heat up on the bbq. Decided to share it, despite it's lack of coolness. :P

Lately I've been strangely fascinated by the inner workings of vintage watches. I came across a few antique watch movements a while ago and have since collected several more. I find the craftsmanship that went into those things really inspiring, so I selected my favorites, tacked them to my art table and did this series of drawings from them. (graphite on paper)

More Underworld Concepts

Here's another Underworld painting and a sketch for the Kraken (also tenderly referred to as "The Underpus" by fans on the TR forums)
