POST EXPLOSION

MAN. Almost a month since my last post, what a hack I am. I apologize for not posting any artwork, the past 2 months has been crazy with teaching, weddings and I finally wrapped up my 2 month stay at Technicolor Animation. I was originally slated for only 4 weeks but I ended up working on a couple fun projects for them which I will be able to talk about later. I met so many cool artists and people over there and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with them. SO if you see some new people on my friends list, that will be them!

Alright, here are a couple of pieces I am currently working on:

First up, this is the gladiator all colored up from my previous post. This took me a lot longer to finish because of time and also I was really pushing the quality of the armor. It was a tiring but fun process. I have 3 more characters from his world I hope to get to those soon!





Next up, for those who know Escape From New York with Kurt Russel, this is my homage to the infamous Snake Plissken. I am going to color him up this weekend. Probably try a more flat style for him, more towards animation.




Here are some pages from my sketchbook. I made it a point over one of this past weekends to get out of the house and go to the mall. I usually sit in food courts because everyone has to eat and you get all sorts of fun characters coming together in one place. A lot of fun until you get a little kid hovering over you with an ice cream bar ready to fall on your sketchbook.




Lastly, I sat in on my buddy's class in San Diego and did some life drawing. Towards the end of the session the model was getting covered up by students heads so I decided to draw them instead.



And I got a little carried away with these, the model as a zombie, and one of the final poses he really looked like a character from Conan defeating his sworn enemy.





Well, that's it for now. I am back with a vengeance and will be posting more regularly. Thanks for stopping by all and thank you for being patient with my updates!
