DAMIAN!!!!!!

Damian Wayne Robin. Project:Rooftop has Fan Art Fridays, as well as redesign contests. Fan Art Fridays are fun, cuz anything goes (as long as you stay on topic). The most recent one is in light of Robin's death, which happened in the past year in the Batman comics. I grew to like the kid, and this is how I saw him: growling and with a sword. Oh, he has no problem killing people by the way. Long story... LARGER VIEW I don't know what the eff is up with Blogger changes, but it kinda sucks. Images display is different. Anyhow, if you click the link above you can see the bigger view of the top drawing. Its a link to my Deviant Art Page while you're there.

Some Green Lanterns

So I entered these "designs" for the Project:Rooftop Green Lantern redesign contest. I didn't win, nor get an honorable mention (those bastards!!!). But its okay. I stand by my designs. I just wanted to do something fun, different and gay (at least for the caped one). These are my designs for Alan Scott Green Lantern from Earth 2 (nu52) and Hal Jordan, if he were designed... in the 90s? Anyhow, always fun and will enter more at P:R if I can help it. Oh and in case you're wondering.. Here are the winners as well as the runners up. I especially like Bal Gamis' design. Prolly cuz we both did Alan Scott, but he one-upped me... fucker.

The Wee Willie Winkie

Currently I am working on some pieces for the next Beasts & Beats Art Show. The theme this time is Nursery Rhymes. I've chosen Wee Willie Winkie. He's a Sandman type character that helps put restless kids to sleep. I envision him as a little scotsman sprite. Here i am trying to develop his look as well as those of the kids before I get started:

1 a day / 30 days : month 2

I made it to day 60 of consecutive speed paints. Would be nice if it was double that number, but just hitting the goal was what I was aiming for. I think it is now in my system. This batch I started out stylizing the paintings more. Pretty much after that, my goal was figuring out how to simplify stuff without noodling. After a while, I realized that I need more challenging subject matter and not just what I wanted to use as reference. My next goal is to do 30 days of imagination speed paints. That will be my next goal....

Speed Paint : One Month Difference

Visceral Games Test : DEAD SPACE World


This is some old artwork I found from earlier this past semester. I was recruited to do an art test for Visceral Games (EA), makers of Dead Space and some others. I was asked to create an environment piece in the style of the game. This was my pass. It was fun, sooo different from what I normally do. I didn't get the job...
