Kickstarter Update & Online Store!

Hello everyone! It’s been quite a busy and fun summer so far. Here are some of my July updates!

1. Kickstarter rewards fulfilled! 

It’s been over two months since the launch of The Collection Kickstarter campaign! I am excited to announce that the Kickstarter rewards have been shipped!

2. I opened an online store!

Yes, that means you can purchase The Collection book / PDF version or any of the art prints if you missed out on the Kickstarter! I also plan on selling other future work on here as well.

The Collection Kickstarter Project – June Update

Hello everyone!

I am excited to announce that The Collection comic books have just recently arrived! The art prints have arrived as well.

In the next month or two I will be signing and doing personal sketches in some of the books and will be fulfilling each reward. Again, thank you to everyone who have been a part of bringing this project to life.

As always, you can follow me on FacebookTwitter, or Tumblr for the most recent updates on this project. If you’ve missed the Kickstarter and would like to purchase a book, please follow me on social media and I will be posting updates as to when they will be available for purchase.

Have an awesome summer!

Periodic Table of Elements Illustrations

The final project for my Digital Imagery classes was to create a set of 6 illustrations inspired by some of the elements of the period table. I chose the elements Gold, Silver, Hafnium, Lead, Meitnerium, and Terbium. Three had to be character designs and the other three had to be environment-inspired designs. Some of these illustrations were inspired by chemical characteristics or make-up of the elements rather than their physical attributes.

Fight, fight, fight!

A short illustration project featuring two figures from history or culture and showing them fight one another. Each student was divided into groups of two and were given a pair of figures. I received the fight between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, and the character I focused on was Steve Jobs. Below is a character model sheet of Jobs and three illustrations showing the pair’s fight.

State of Mind Project

Project Scope: create three diverse characters reflecting aspects from three different states.

Time frame: 1 week

Deliverables:
— Three character turnarounds with four facial expressions
— Two 10″x8″ illustrations featuring all three characters interacting in an environment.

For this project, I decided to create a family of bears. I chose the states California, Montana, and Alabama to work with. The state mammal for California and Montana is a grizzly bear and for Alabama was a black bear.

The Collection – Duab character sketches

Hello all!

I will be posting a few preliminary sketches of the characters from The Collection comic on my blog in the next few weeks. I feel that understanding and seeing the process that goes behind an art form is often times more important than the finished product itself. For this story, I had to sketch out 100 drawings of my main characters (Duab and Muaj) to get a better understanding for what they will look like. Not only does drawing your character 100 or more times helps you figure out what your character will look like, it will also help you learn to draw your character more consistently (which is very important in comics).
