    sketches,studies,roughs,and rejects

    This is artwork that had a purpose at the time, but never went anywhere: early concept sketches, rough designs that the client didn't choose, and finished designs from projects that weren't realized. And a few figure drawing studies thrown in just for fun.

    Some preliminary costume designs for the third issue of my underground comic book, Girlsquad X, which never got published. Most are pen and marker. A few got tweaked in Photoshop

    Two paintings from live models: watercolor on illustration board. The illustration board is very absorbent, and desaturates the watercolors terribly, but hey, the boards were free!

    Some vehicle studies for a near-future sci-fi game. They would be found in a mining colony type of environment. They're pretty boring, but they needed to be very functional looking.

    Wow, really impressive pieces here.
    How long have you been doing art, and how long before you started professionally?

    Thanks for the props.
    Professionally, I've been doing industrial design for about 20 years, which requires a lot of sketching and drawing. Don't worry: I won't bore anyone here by posting drawings of pepperoni displays and frozen pea packages. I've always done a lot of figure drawing, comic book drawing, and landscape painting on the side as well. So, I've been doing professional (applied) art and non-professional (fine) art concurrently for a bit over 20 years. I've still got a lot to learn.
