First Mobile Post

I'm sort of out in the land of no internet when it comes to my computer right now, so this is all I can post. This is the first stage of my first professional oil painting. I'm pretty proud of how it's coming along, but you can see a lot of the mistakes I've made along the way. If they don't cover up nicely I can always do another relatively quickly. The next two are on the way and I should be updating them within the week.

Poke mans.

A quick update in the midst of more traditional work -- here's my submission for Reddit Gifts' Secret Santa 2014. The person I have seems to be really into Pokemon, but that's about all I could find on them. My giftee did mention in their comments that Turtwig was the first Pokemon they ever had so... Ta-daaa.

Side Jobs.

Over the past couple months I've been mostly working traditionally, trying to pick up oil painting. While it's been very rewarding I still suck far too hard at it to post any of my studies. However, I've had a few side projects that have been a ton of fun to work on.

Firstly, a poster for my friend Toby's fabulous once-every-month-or-two-depending-on-how-things-are show, "The Weekly Revue." If any of you are in New Orleans I highly recommend coming to hang out. Well worth your five bucks.

Secondly, I joined Reddit's Secret Santa this year and have been doing a little digital piece (ripping off a Frazetta composition) for my giftee. I'm still very much an amateur with digital painting, but I like how this has been turning out. Going to wrap it up over the next 24 hours. It'll stay sketchy, but will have a lot more color.

UPDATE: Almost done!

UPDATE: Final. It's sketchy and all, but I'm pretty happy with it. I hope my giftee is, too!

Dilly-dallying (to be followed by Dilly-dalliances).

A quick sketch of some sort of creature while waiting for paints to dry. Do you think people would be more or less afraid of aliens if we rendered them with genitalia?

Big timin'.

Enormous post here. Going to try to get a few months in one go. Below are sketchbook works, commissions, comic exercises, drawings from Korea, and on. Want it all in one so it doesn't clog the works too bad. Enjoy!

First off, some samples from the sketchbook. Started doing watercolors, working more with digital, and revisiting anatomy. here are some of the dailies.

Next, we'll kick off with some storyboards! These are for a nonsmoking campaign in Louisiana. It aired a bit ago and a lot of these made it. First gig that gets aired, and it's me selling out as a smoker... sounds about right.

Now, to comics. Here are some exercises from a course, starting with "fill in the middle" and finishing with an exercise in doing a script as four panels or one. You can tell I was watching a lot of True Detective at the time.

And lastly, some original comics (sort of)! The scripts are old Static Shock and Y: The Last Man offerings. The tight roughs for the second set of Y didn't quite get to where I wanted them, but I like them nonetheless.  I really like my redesign for Static. I pulled a lot from nineties rappers. The sets are the same script two different ways. Bonus: Can anybody spot Travis?

And that's about all she wrote for now. Thanks for taking a look. I'll be posting more soon.

B-b-b-beat Boards.

Hey all, here are some sort-of-beat boards done for friends shooting a film over the coming year. They needed images for a scene that was tech- and CGI-heavy, so I enlisted the assistance of the unimaginably fantastic Brandon Moore to work on them with me (read: teach me how to do them correctly to the best of his ability). 

It was an extremely good time and I hope more work like this comes along, especially from these folks. Much thanks to Jonas, Constance, Matt T. and the whole crew.

The scene is a bunch of guys on a raft in a nasty storm. The subject goes into the water to rescue his buddy as the camera drifts in and out of the water with him.  He bobs in and out, watching the raft flip, ending with bodies in the water.
