    MGH Sketchbook

    Hello all!

    Man, I haven't posted on here in years (I think). I used to do the Challenge of the Day thing when I was in school back in '05, and then did the character of the week for a while a few years again.

    Anyway, I'm back and starting a sketchbook thread for my stuff in all its random glory.

    First up: "The Strawman". This is some of the character work I did for a motion comic for The Hive. They put the project on hiatus late last summer and put me to work on "Alchemist Agenda" (which was a test movie for Amazon Studios).

    Anyway, below you will see some of the character concepts. Woot!

    Cheers!

    Environments!

    Hello again!

    @Hair Fish -- thank you! They were fun to do.

    I'm posting some Straw-Man environment designs here. I'm not sure what to say except that it's a bar in the middle of no where.

    Next week I will start to post the animation backgrounds. Woot!

    Superkids!

    Some work from “SUPERKIDS”, a program about nutrition put on by the California Science Center. This take was abandoned, but I still liked it.

    Cheers!

    ASHEA

    Hello again!

    So I've been putting off saving out jpegs from this project forever. We had 7 days from concept to finished product. The finished product being to animate 7 minutes. It was a hell of a task. I handled art direction and asset creation.

    Anyway, below are some of the backgrounds and the character designs.

    Cheers!

    MGH

    If you care to see the final video, I just uploaded it to my vimeo page here.

    Interesting collection of work you've got here. Maybe throw in some life studies for good measure? Just a thought.

    Keep at it, it's looking good!

    Lightbulb Avengers assemble!

    The original Avengers team! Seeing the movie inspire me to do a take on the original team. I considered doing the cover to Avengers #1, but stopped at the lineup.

    Cheers!

    Don't Eat Junkfood!

    Lineart, watercolor, and finish of a Dr. Goyle pinup. Dr. Goyle is a character created and owned by Mark Stegbauer (check him out here ). He has a Dr. Goyle mini-series currently coming out through Alpha Dog Publishing.

    Anyway, this was a blast to do. Let me know what you think!

    Cheers!

    Hello!

    It has been awhile since I posted anything! Far too long, methinks. Anyway, I just got back from Wizard World Ohio and I thought I'd post this Judge Dredd piece that I did (inks by Mark Stegbauer, pencils & marker by me), as well as some new-ish Father Jacobs stuff. The lineup features versions of the character by each of the Alpha Dog artists (Mark Stegbauer, Bat Hilliard, Will Caligan, & me).

    Take a look!

    Cheers!

    Thanks so much guys! You have made me feel very welcome and more like part of the community! Sometimes it feels like blind posting/commenting. Haha. So thank you!

    Hello again!

    I’m trying to be better about posting. It is easy as an artist to get holed up and forgetting that sharing is a crucial part. I teach stage design at a local university, and the other day I was in there and one of the theatre students was getting teased a bit about joining a fraternity. The student claimed he was doing it to broaden the reach of the university’s theatre department. The general response from the other students was one of “frat guys aren’t going to come to theatre” and general artistic elitism. It occurred to me that if the intention of socially-minded theatre was to reach out and participate in the community, then that theatre cannot just create art for itself. It must be as it intends: socially-minded. Also, it is a false-assumption that frat guys aren’t going to come to the theatre or enjoy art. So yeah, that got me thinking more and more about being an active member of artistic communities. So here I am posting again.

    First, I’d like to share a little something I’m working on. I’m redesigning the female X-Men as SuicideGirls/Punkrock girls. The first is 80’s Storm.


    Second, I recently finished my 50th sketchbook and I wanted to share some of the drawings from it.


    I hope you enjoy this post!
    Cheers!

    Matt

    Sketches from Volume 51

    Hello!

    I recently finished my 51st sketchbook and I wanted to share some of the sketches from it! Amongst them is a fun marker sketch of "St. Jerome in Penance" from Goya. I went out to the Norton Simon one day and got to draw in front of the masterpiece itself.

    Also, if you're interested, I'm taking a few commissions for the holiday season. You can find out more here: http://logicinkismgh.deviantart.com/...ions-337106048

    Cheers!
