sci-fi city square

I needed to take one of the many sketchbook thumbnails to a finished color concept. Had some helpful feedback from my buds at work to improve this one and finally call it done. Not a terribly well planned space in terms of function, but it was fun working on the lighting and details. ;P

masked sorceress

a completely different approach to an earlier concept I started for a 'fortune teller' - had to simplify some things. sometimes simpler IS better.

CS5 about 5 hrs in two sittings spread over the weekend.

sci-fi new delhi market

trying to achieve the appearance of blending a present day culture with more futuristic technology to give a believable fictional universe. might be cool to try this sci-fi treatment on a more historic culture such as mayan, norse or tribal african.

soldier - 'spider' unit

here is a quick concept based on one of my sketchbook doodles. i'm trying to work on 'loosening up' with my brushwork - that delicate balance of detail vs suggestive forms is difficult for me (not sure why, LOL).

personal WIPs...

here's a screen grab of a couple of character designs I'm working on - just personal work. they're obviously in the WIP stage, but I'm having fun and enjoy where they're going. should be able to post these as finished concepts by next weekend - I hope.

cyborg werewolf redesign

Another concept artist at work threw down a challenge to take a character we had finished and do a redesign - trying to improve it or just taking a different approach. This was my result. A fun exercise and great challenge.

dark shaman

I started painting this one ages ago from a rough pen sketch I did and just wanted to 'finish' it a bit... not sure how I feel about it yet. I do like dark fantasy stuff - perhaps I'll try to do more of that.

alien ambassador

did this for a buddy at work - he wanted something to model for his personal portfolio and so I was only too happy to have an excuse to draw another creature / alien dude, lol.

worm of corruption

this freaky creature is a result of some little sketchbook doodles... i did a detailed drawing based off this and painted the thing up in photoshop - trying to pay more attention to lighting and mood. the blue tongue is inspired by some geckos that have blue tongues, and i thought it was gross... kinda unnatural. ;P
