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.

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

Hartford Trip 2012

Here are some images from my two-week MFA summer session at the University of Hartford in Connecticut.
This is a portrait of a Trygon Prime, done using the steps taught by Chris Payne


 Here is Chaos Space Marine Lord done trying to emulate Chris Payne’s painting style, this was for a weeklong class taught by Gary Kelly and Chris Payne. Both of these were mixed traditional media.
 This is a title screen I did for a Sexy Space Ladies Game done for Nancy Stahl and Zina Saunders class on developing an app using computer software. It was done in painter and Photoshop.


Below are some sketches I did in my sketchbook over the two weeks. This was done in ballpoint pen
