Gencon 2016 Play Testing


I’ve been slacking on keeping the blog updated, I’ve been getting ready for Gencon partially because of the new card game Xenofera, but mostly because I’ve been sharpening up my X-wing skills.
 
 Above is a rudimentary creature card, I’ll be posting more art after I get back from gencon

If you are attending Gencon 2016 or around the Indianapolis region this weekend feel free to stop by and join us for a play testing of Xenofera!

Xenofera is a dynamic 2-5-person card game where players compete to see who can collect the most exotic cosmic zoo. Players must recruit an expedition team; acquire the gear needed for a galactic safari, then set out for the wildest hunt in the galaxy.
Xenofera will be going live on Kick Starter at the end of September, more details will be coming soon…..

Warhammer 40k Art


I’ve been pretty bad over the last few years posting projects I’ve been working on, so I’m playing catch up right now. These are some pieces I did for Warhammer 40k Conquest from some of the Tyranid and Necron expansions.
Above Some Necron warriors reanimating after several decades of lying dormant.
Below more Necrons holding off an assault by Chaos Berserkers on a death world.

An Enginseer caught off guard while investigating an anomaly at a forge world.
A Venomthrope overpowers a Imperial Psyker in the ruins of an ancient temple

Below are some progress shots of my current project Xenofera, which is a enterprise I'm am working on with a game designer I met at a recent convention.  I'm currently trying to get the layout of all the cards squared away. Its kind of cool getting to figure out the layout and design for an entire set of cards, I just hope it comes out ok when they are printed, I’m kind of new to this.
This is the official seal for the Royal Society of Xenofera Huntsman, this is going on the card backs.
Next update I will post some of the finished card designs!

Xenofera/ Battletech





I meant to post these sooner, I got tied up on a rush job for the folks at Batttletech.  I’ve been working on a semi-self initiated project with a game maker I met at recent game convention. The name of the game is Xenofera, and it’s a 2-5 player competitive card game where the goal is to collect the most exotic space animals from all over the galaxy. Above is the cover art for the box.

This is the Jokers Jackal and its just one of the examples of one of the creatures you may encounter. I'm trying to make the art more fun and no so serious as I normally do. I’ll have many more examples of these in the future, as we get closer to the launch date so stay tuned for updates.
Below are some pieces I did for Battletech a while back

The Primarchs /Getting Back Into the Swing of Things



I thought I’d try this again since its almost been 3 years since my last post. What better way to kick this off than by showing the Primarchs I’ve been working on. For those of you not familiar with the Warhammer 40k (30k) universe the Primarchs are the sons of the Emperor of mankind and founders of original 18 Legiones Astartes.
 Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters
Mortarion, of the Death Guard 
 
Lorgar, of the Word Bearers
 
Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperors Children

These guys are all traitors and I hope to, in the near future, paint some of the good guys.
I’ll be posting some more updates by the end of the week showing some more updates and I want to show off some new art for a personal card game I’m working on that should be going live on KIckstarter, sometime later this year.

San Francisco/ Trapped In Denver/ Art update

-->
It’s been far too long since I updated anything on the Internet, so I am going to force myself to get back into posting stuff online starting with my blog.
Here a Trygon has sprung a subterranean surprise attack upon a patrol of Space wolves in the mountains surrounding their mountain fortress. The warriors of Fenris desperately battle against a formidable of which they will most likely not win.

I did this piece in gouache on a 20x30 piece of Illustration board. I’ve been using gouache in a more loosely applied manner than I did in the past. I think this is partially due to experimenting with weekly paintings where I attempt keep the paint fluid and move it all around the canvas. I also worked with a very limited pallet I think it was a total of six to seven colors, most all ranging in the cool spectrum.

Below is my sketchbook from The San Francisco trip that I went on for School with the University of Hartford MFA in Illustration Limited Residency program. At one point I was stranded in the Denver airport for four days due to a blizzard. This is my entire sketchbook Unabridged and uncensored.

Now, I’m going to Gen Con!

Annual Blog Update

It’s been a while since I updated the blog so I thought I’d share a few pieces I’ve been working on. These are some Demos I did in my Drawing 1 class this last semester. 

Below is a pen and ink demo for class


Here is an ink wash demo for our week of ink wash


This is from the robot drawing week

While in Ny York this past November, with my grad school class with the University of Hartford MFA in illustration, I managed to fill an entire sketchbook. Some of these are from IlluxconV the rest are sketches in class, and on the subway, there are also some drawings from a chiefs game I attended.

Da Red Ones Go Fasta

 In honor of Games Day I decided do a piece involving some Ork Boyz in a Trukk as they race headlong across the desert into the fray of combat. This was a pencil sketch I brought into Photoshop and rendered it tryin to utilize more textur.
 These are some sketches I did in an attempt to work on speed, above is a necron Triarch fightin a Dark Eldar wych, and a Daemonette of slaanesh riding her seeker steed and below is Trygon Ambushing a land raider.

 These are some timed ones I did to really get my timing down, these are both 45 min. The first is an Ork Warphead, and the other is Chaos Space Marine From the fallen chapter of the Thousand Sons.

Below is some of the promotional stuff/ art stuff I am taking to Chicago
