Fantastic amount of improvement since the summer! I really enjoy the flow/sense of movement, and body language in these last few character paintings. Also that Grayscale study is top notch, too.
Been busy working on comics this week but here's some stuff I've done on the side.
The first is a study still in progress from a stock photo. The next is a quick character painting of a friends rpg character for the game Exalted. And the last three are thumbnails of environments. Still working on teaching myself environment painting so I figure I'd start with just simple black and white thumbnails. Still a long way for me to go though.
kingcoyote - Thanks for the kind words. They mean alot
Stuff I've done on the side of getting coloring work done. only 4 more pages to go on the first volume of The Warlock vs. the Leprechaun and I just got started working on a Michelle Obama biography comic.
But anywho these are some hand studies, a few color studies of environments, a human study ( still having issues in the arm area), a conceptual piece done for a nividia contest (still wanna work more into it) and a enviromental painting (got some really great help on vent for it. but I still have a long way to go in learning to do good environments)
More to come soon
Really nice work on values

The Spaniard's Sketchbook... No holds barred
Coloring comics has been taking up most of my time blah. But I'm getting faster so soon I'll be outputting alot more work I think. So heres some current workings.
First are a couple of watercolor paintings I'm working on. No where near finished but figured why not post some WIP action.
Can't post whole pages of what I'm working on but the first sunset one is from a comic idea me and the inker have been thinking of doing. I think its cheesy to use lens flare but it seemed to work pretty well for the panel. The next 3 panels are from the Michelle Obama biography comic I currently have been working on. sadly not allowed to post full pages of this as well, but allowed to post a few panels. I really like how the old man came out. Then the western is a test page we've been working on. Dunno how I feel about it still.
And the last two are from two OC sessions with Jove lol. its very relaxing and fun to say the least.
More to come soon as I plan to join up in the Dominance War competition among other things
Jawesome stuff! Tis skillfull keep going.

Quick domination war brainstorm sketches, a quick study of a fountain, and a bunch of Alchemy doodles I did the other day.
Tek Wars pin up I did the color work on. Gonna print in a free comic book day issue which is action packed. a sketch for dominance war and a chow sketch.
progress on this weeks chow and more brainstorming on dominance war.
Hello Tea Drinker nice sketchbook you have here.
Cant wait to see more updates dominance war looks likes its gona be a fun project.
Your characters have improved lots in both creativity and production. Well done! I think you can still work on your values a little more - darker darks, bright highlights, and richer colours maybe? You're so close! The values are just a little bit too close together in a lot of cases. Lots of progress going on in here!
Continue to grow and learn! Gave you some stars to keep you from going hungry
Holy crap stars!!! Thanks IanE
Felt bad I haven't posted my work lately so heres a dump of things so far. most are brainstorming and concepts plus that chow from last week.
Hopefully I can get some more refined drawings and ideas by the end of week here ^_^ just have to drink more tea I think.
WOW AWESOME updates. LOVING THE STAFF and character comcepts
staff action. working on shaman designs and tree people designs tonight.
Wow you've made some awesome progress on this page alone!
Your photo studies are looking great and your sketches are awesome, as are the Al.chemly and digis! Really dig the watercolours as well, any chance of some more of them? Hell everythings great!
Really nice job on your CHOW piece too, the lightings so cool!
So sorry not to many crits apart from working of some more anatomy(which we could all do really!).
outfit variations on the shaman invoker.
also did some work on the trent invoker. Totally gonna do a bunch of variations on that as well. I'm thinking the female invoker with the shaman theme won't stand out as much as something more whimsical like a trent type creature person.
been slammed with alot of work lately. Just picked up another colorist gig with a sci-fi series called TekWars; so I've been working alot on that lately. Written by William Shatner so as a Trekkie I am stoked!
Plan is to get ahead in pages tonight so I can focus on Dominance War.
1. Section from a page in Tekwars I did the color work on. And yes the script was specific that the colony ship was rusted
2 - 3. Some silhouette action
4. A Character painting piece I'm working on for a good friend. Still a work in progress.
Now to the batmobile!
So some years later since my last post in short: I have worked many freelance contracts, traveled to Korea, and again returned back to the states to where I now work full time as a concept artist for a new studio called City State Entertainment. Worth every minute of the 14+ hour plane trip back to the east coast. I'm now working around alot of hardcore talent and industry vets which has seriously motivated me to get back into posting online. So here I am back in conceptart.org to reconnect and get back into constant updating and bettering myself further.
Not to mention I miss the action packed-ness of this place. hooray!!
Here are some recent things for now and I'll be posting more of my current things soon.
Any feedback as always both good and bad is welcome. Thanks for lookn.
