Here is this years Christmas card I'll be mailing out as soon as it's ready for pick up from the printer. I had big plans for this one but had to rush it since the next two weeks will mean very little drawing time. But mostly it's because we need to mail these guys out in time for Christmas!

Here's my take on this weeks Mermaids. I decided to create a mermaid that may have had to endure the real hardships of living in the ocean. Not the typical Mermaid that just sunbathes on rocks with shell bikini tops while sailors hollar out.
Half way through completing this I came up with the idea of doing an Abegail Sapien instead....oh well next time if we do seacreatures or sea peoples.

So here's the inked version of my previous post. I did this in flash and have made a few adjustments along the way that differ from the original sketch. I decided to add some extra barnacles on his body suit/armor. I also meant to draw a tool of sorts like the drill or rivot gun that the Big Daddys'from the first game used as weapons. And sticking to the theme of heavy duty tools I decided to create a one-handed "Jaws of Life" for my Big Daddy. I hope this looks like it would work in the world of Rapture it's been a fun little projects so far. Next step doing the flat colours in flash and then the final step of rendering textures and lighting in photoshop!

Here's a sketch I've done just for fun. I guess I've been inspired lately by all the amazing concept art I've seen for Bioshock 1 and the recent cover art for the sequel. I also just finished the game for my 3rd time on hard. Anyway I've decided to do my own personal variant of a Big Daddy.
I'm planning on bringing this sketch into Flash and then do the rendering, shading and textures in Photoshop. Perhaps I'll find some time to do the line work this week but in the meantime enjoy the sketch!

Here's a couple of images I decided to do for this weeks topic of Spider-man. On a personal not I have to say Todd McFarlane's Spider-man comics got me drawing at a young age ...well him and Wile E Coyote. Anyhow, I couldn't decide what to draw for this weeks topic with all the fun villains and poses you could come up with. But I remembered how much I loved Todd McFarlane's comic covers from the 80's and one in particular had classic spidey on the cover then it was redone later as black suit Spidey. Anyway this is an homage to both spider-man and Todd McFarlane's inspirational work that helped lead me to the field I'm in today and the craft I love.

Here's an illustration for a book Josh Frost is putting together that will showcase many interpretations of Darth Vader in homage to his creator GL. You can read more about the book on the link below.
I had two other possibilities for a finished peice but I thought this reflected what I felt and visualized when I would think of Darth Vader. I may end up doing one of the others in time just because it was pretty bizarre and fun. When my wife saw the picture she couldn't see how I made the connection to Darth Vader and ...anyway I'll leave that as it is and hopefully you'll see the other picture in due time. In meantime enjoy!

Here's this years Valentine's day card..this rendition is a little different from the one Robyn will receive. This is an illustration of the greatest lover of all time...my pet fish. He has a harem and is now the proud father of over 20 offspring over the course of year. How does he do it you ask? It's all in his stripes and dance moves.
