Tron: Meh-gacy!

It sure did look nice though!

In other news, I started a tumblr page. I know, I know - I can barely keep up with a blog, how am I going to keep this up? I figure I'll use that as more of a 'general' art blog... photos/links etc? The interwebs sure is a crazy place.

Taxiiii!

I love Melbourne weather. Its the middle of December, and today it was 17* and raining. Beautiful! Keep this up and we'll have 3 winters in a row...thats right, triple freakin' winter. Bring it on.

More 'Little Red & The Wolf' stuff.

'Little Red & The Wolf'

I'm not dead - its true! Its been a strange 6 months... being made redundant, my old work place shutting down - it probably wasn't the most inspirational time for me to paint anything..so, I didn't! I've since got a new job, which I'm loving, and I think its helped kick-start the ol' creativity again.

Here's a game idea i've had in my head for some time now - which really isn't all that original, more like a spin on the old fairy tale. Looking forward to exploring this more...

Change of pace

So my new NEW (7-month late) new years resolution is to focus less on rendering and more on storytelling and the idea behind the picture. Here we go!

Future Africa?

Another experiment starting from random shapes/colours

Quick enviros



These pics were composition experiments, and also about trying to make something from a very vague thumbnail. The original thumbnails are in the top right corner.

Update: Second patch of quick experiments. I felt like using a more saturated palette this time round...dunno if that works so well. Also, the perspective for #2 is really messed up, but meh!

Enviro WIP

So I've decided leaving my blog for 'finished pieces only' is kinda pointless, mostly cause I'm doing so much experimenting lately and the fact it'd take me waaayy too long to post finished work anyway.

So. Here is another work in progress. BUT. I am pretty happy with where this one is heading and am keen to finish it off. Hmmmmm

Sketches / Work in Progress

I've really changed focus the last couple of weeks with this concept business - I'm trying to experiment more with process and also focusing more heavily on characters, as well as trying to find my own 'style' again (something I've ignored for too long, I think). Here are some of my more recent attempts - a lot of unfinished work here.

Photo studies

These pics were studies that were painted from photos that I didn't take - please dont sue me!
Trying to get better with my rendering technique by doing these. More to come.

Life Drawing and Figure studies

WOAH!




No art this time, just words and a screengrab from facebook.

I found out today that I received a scholarship (50% off) in Conceptart.org's new Entertainment Design course, starting in June. Thats RIDICULOUS. I am freakin' excited!

Thanks Conceptart.org. Bring on June! Woooooo

Back into the sci fi



There've been a couple of game releases lately that have got me reinspired to try some sci fi enviro stuff. Its been a looong time. Hopefully a lot more to come.

Semi-old work in progress


Here's one I started a few months ago but never ended up finishing.
I was happy with the colour palette but not much else, so I doubt I ever will finish it.

The necessary evils.


Speedies & studies.

Scribble-town


I'm still really enjoying my reunion with traditional media.

Speedies


I was really trying to control the brushstrokes with these and stay loose. Good fun.

Over-rendering sucks!

Sketches

Pencil and paper, you have been missed!

Incredibly rusty at sketching cause I don't do it nearly as often as I should, but I'm really enjoying getting back into it. The first of many pages, hopefully.

EOW 134 - Spring arrives after endless Winter


My entry for the latest Enviro of the Week on conceptart.org

The composition for this pic was a huuuuuge pain - for the longest time I had no idea what I was doing wrong and it just didn't look right.

EOW 133 - Ancient Palace Ruins




Was feeling inspired during the first class of The Art Department tonight - figured I'd start painting at 10pm. Great idea, brain!

Team CHOW


Me and some friends from work decided to give the Team Chow a go. The brief was Taro cards, but the setting was left completely up to us. We settled on an idea very similar to the TV show 'Heroes' - every day people with special abilities.

Cheers to Roberto and Brandon for teaming up!

You can see our entries (together) here!
