this is a test.
sorry, for breathing heavily into the mic, but using a headset.

Just testing out a new method of recording my work progress. I'll try again, but this time maybe a more stationary camera.
Tell me what you think.

new pen

for the past two years I've been having problems with my intuo 2 pen.... aside from the fact my tablet is over 8 years old and that wacom stopped supporting it. So I've been hesitant to take any steps to correct this. So for the past two years, I'd have weird inconsistent problems with my art, like it had a lump in the middle of a brush stroke or stop getting connection from the tablet. As always I found work arounds to extend the life of this tablet well beyond then it should have been.

And now again I continue that with a new Grip Pen. The good news is I can now work on photoshop, so you might be seeing some new art using the watercolor technique I had before. I'll be experimenting around for new ideas, I'm just happy it works now. Instead of using the eraser end like I did before

a new cover I did for Schlock Magazine
I know the forearm is off, and I knew it was an awkward pose to begin with. It's a pose I felt had power to it, and excited me to design a background around it.
Here are my early sketches, as you can see I had a concept for a background and a design of a woman. Multiple cavewomen? Yeah, I'll save that for later

I'd like to thank Sinistar1 for his inspiration and help on this piece
here's my work process. Originally it started as a rough sketch from seeing Sinistar1's original piece. I don't know much about Dejah, only from Frazetta art. So I went for a classic pin up style with a touch of Art Adams inspiration.
a higher res version and lots of higher res work process images to go through

Wicked Child

Alucard and Maria Renard along with familars and Richter Belmont and 3 coffins from Castlevania - Symphony of the Night. Made for Michele Lengendre upcoming Pixel Love art show.

If your asking why it's upside down, well basically in order to unlock the true ending you must kill the green orb controlling Richter Belmont, and then replay the game with the inverted castle. But also the parallels of characters of Castlevania 3 and Symphony of the night which later on you fight them as zombies.

A new castlevania 3 - Dracula's Curse piece, staring Trevor Belmont, Alucard, Sypha Belnades, and Grant Danasty made for Michele Legendre's upcoming Pixel Love art show. I'm so excited to participate in this and it gives me an excuse to be a video game nerd

now a brief behind the scenes of this development. Read more...Collapse )

Castlevania's Simon Belmont made for Michele Legendre Pixel Love show

Unlike before where I went step by step, I think there were way too many steps on this. I'll show a bit of the early work
