This is a piece I did for a side project that I'm working on. Basically he's a monster hunter of the James Bond sort (as apposed to the Van Helsing sort). It's really a fun project and I'll let you all know about it when I'm really ready to let it all out there. Until then you get this little teaser piece. Enjoy.

I know what some of you are probably thinking. Oh what a nice guy to draw something like this for his wife. But you would be wrong. On top of loving action movies and Godzilla and bad scifi/horror films, I am also totally in love with Jane Austen. It doesn't make much sense to me either but there's nothing really I can do about it. About 2-3 times a year I have the need to sit down and watch Pride and Prejudice. Not the recent one with Kiera Knightly (though I have no objections to it), but the 5 hour BBC one. I love it. I talk to the characters on scree. I get totally caught up in it. I realize that some of you may want to distance yourselves from me now, but it couldn't be helped. Now you know. Enjoy.

This took me a bit of time but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. There might be one or two minor things that I do to tweak this still, but by and large it's done and I'm moving on to something else. I came up with this piece while I was in college. I was often suprised by how somber and depressed most people seemed to me. We were doing art for Pete's sake. What's not to be happy about. So I wanted to paint this as kind of my view of the world around me at times, and also to remind myself of how I want to face the world. Hopefully this will help me stay cheerful and happy. Most of the people I know around me now are pretty upbeat. I think most of them get it. We make video games. It's fun. Enjoy.

All of the bugs in the Band of Bugs game needed to have weapons. They also needed to have extras because one of the things you can do is change weapons while you're playing. Normally I just prefer to do character design but in this case I enjoyed coming up with some fun little swords and spear type of stuff for the bugs to use. I think they turned out ok. enjoy.

Here's that piece I've been working on. I figured I would show a work in progress so you all could see it half done (that and I wanted something to put up here.) I'm probably shooting myself in the foot up to this point. I really enjoy coloring the faces and soon I'm going to be out of faces to color and all I'll be left with is hair and clothes to color and I won't enjoy that at all. Maybe I'll switch gears now and do some hair and stuff so that I have a few more faces to look forward to. I'll post this again in a few days to show you all some more progress. Enjoy.
