    New toy coming soon! I’m sculpting a Doom Bunny out of Chavant Clayette from The Engineer Guy for a plastic cast. I am looking into a Kickstarter to make the first edition. #engineerguy #bunny #toy #customtoy #sculpture #chavant

    This is a quick layout digital painting that I did for an animation that Colin is working on. A salmon is going to be leaping out of the water. KaSplOOsh! It was refreshing to get back to some landscape painting and it only took a couple hours. I’m getting the hang of digital painting.

    Below the layout are some characters sketches that I did for a kids’ book that I’m illustrating. Yay for digital painting!

    I just sculpted the head machete to help me figure out how to sculpt Odin’s face in Maya. My first character model is going well so far. #Odin #Maya #Viking #norse

    Adventures in Autodesk Maya! Here are the scenes that I created in Maya for Professor Maloney’s Digital Form, Space and Lighting class. It was hell to learn, but I came out alive and smarter than before. The swamp and tree house are supposed be be based off of a voodoo witch’s house in the bayou.

    Below the swamp images is my character design of Odin and his ravens. I’m modeling him now. That’s his turn-around sketch. I drew it with a Copic marker. Under that is the beginning of his torso sculpt in Maya. He’s going to look so awesome!

    "Split Personality" This my favorite blind-contour drawing so far. This drawing was executed without looking at my paper. It takes incredible focus. I think blind-contour is the most raw and honest form of drawing. No lies can go on my paper when I don’t even lift my marker or look at the drawing. This is how only I can draw. I love this drawing because it somehow communicates how I feel on some days. Inside of my mind is a rational human-being living beside many fragmented and deformed monsters and ghosts. I don’t think I’ve ever successfully shown feeling this before. I feel like I have done so here with just a few lines and four minutes.
