Snow Skiff Concepts - silhouettes

Just some vehicle concepts design. Was thinking about a wind and solar powered snow/icemobile. I generally like the third one and would like to push that one a bit more.

Veteran Knight Thumbnail #2

I think I'm a bit closer to nailing down the composition and values for this piece. I think the background will contain several more figures, and the castle of course will be a more interesting design.

Veteran Knight #1

Four thumbnail drawings for a new personal illustration. I had the idea of a shell-shocked veteran knight who has seen one too many battles and is just... done. In the third one, maybe he's seen something that even he, a jaded, grizzled veteran, has found shocking. I loosely based the character on Ser Barristan Selmy from Game of Thrones, but I'll make it my own.

Logo Drafts for a 50's Diner

I'm working on a new logo design project. It's a 50's diner. Not much more to say about that, so... time to get my retro on.

Soil & Water Logo Treatments

Here are some logo treatments I did for a project a couple of years ago. Didn't think it was good enough to include in my design portfolio, but I thought I might share them somewhere.

Masquerade #1

One of three pieces I'm making for the upcoming Ames Poetry Revival Slam. 13" x 19"prints will go to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. I haven't decided which.

Diablo III Wizard - Finished!

Once Christmas was over and I got some downtime at work, I finally got some free time to really sit down and finish this painting. I went with the spider (Arachnid Horror) in the background, because I hate spiders. I added a large overall texture, painted in the detail and cracks in the wall and doorway, and finished it off by adding a gradient overlay layer of light blue to dark violet to give the composition some focus on the wizard's upper body. Then after some rubble and an airbrush glow I called it done.
