More Ice & Fire

Because Id rather not draw caricatures of TV actors in costume, I'm doing the dead heroes of Ice and Fire based on the descriptions in the books and a little imagination. (not to take away from those that do them based to the series, Id just rather not, and it has nothing to do with the fact that Im terrible with likenesses.........) 

Oberyn Martell and Eddard Stark

I sometimes joke to my cat about eating her, but she's tiny so I say that I have to stew her up to get anything worth while.  I have a feeling this guy wouldn't be joking about it.

Life Drawings

Well, its been an interesting few months, making the transition from Ottawa back to Toronto.  Things have been good but its been difficult to get back into the groove.  I'm back at Life Drawing these days and I think its been good for me.  Most of the drawings ive been doing have not been successful but here are a few of the better ones.  I can't promise that I'll be posing more often but I will try.  

Thanks for viewing!

Last week at Mercury

Hey folks, for the last year I've been working as a Junior FX animator in Ottawa for Mercury Filmworks. I've met some great people there and some amazingly talented artists, but all good things must come to an end and without change there is no growth. I've taken an offer to work with Guru Studios in Toronto as a lead FX animator. I'll miss the easy going life in Ottawa as well as the people I've come to know and love there but I'm so damn pumped to be heading back to Toronto to work with Guru and the talent that their studio holds.  Until next time, enjoy the artwork.

Step by step

Some work in progress steps. You can see how much the painting changes from the initial sketch but the basic structure of the image is still intact. I should have scanned in the thumbnail to show how true I stuck to it--maybe ill add it for the final so stay tuned.

Desert Rocks

 Ive been working my summer away lately and its definitely not cool. Freelance was bone dry in the winter and as soon as it gets nice out- BAM, swamped. Very little time to do personal work, very little time to enjoy the sun. Finally things are clearing up and I had a little time to paint this last night, I hope you all enjoy.

Work Sketchin'

I was on a roll for awhile doing personal art but life finally caught up to me.  I did the sketch at lunch then took an hour and a half after work to color em up.

"Boilstorm" for The Spoils CCG 

This one was tough because I had never painted ocean waves before this but my FX animation experience came in handy.  Not a huge fan of how the characters came out but I had to move on due to deadline restrictions.

More of 'The Spoils'

A couple more fairly quick illustrations for The Spoils card game.  Compositions aren't great but whatever, ill make up for it sooner or later.

The cards are 'Miraculous Regeneration' and 'Recycleable Golem'.  Ill let you figure out which is which.

True Detective

Ah man such an amazing show. Great acting, and a captivating story, I hope they can match it in season II, its gonna be difficult though.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

More Prelim stuff

A little more of this preliminary work - people are always asking to see this stuff so here it is.  Its important to develop a systematic approach to your work so you become more efficient - something Im still trying to figure out admittedly. This one was a little tricky because of all the detail in the room...instead of going to a line drawing, I did a quick color pass and did a draw-over to add a little more character to the room. It seemed to work pretty well. Thoughts are always welcome.

On The Hill - Final Illustration + Process GIF

 After all the color studies and and drawings for this little story, I've finally finished an illustration to go with it. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Thoughts welcome! More to come.

On another note, I've been asked by some folks to add a process gif of my illustrations, so for those of you interested, heres a little animation.
