A Bit of Everything

February 6th, 2011 · 3 Comments

It has been a while since I have posted on here and I wanted to give some sort of update.

I’ve been posting what I learn about drawing and painting at the Nomads Draw Blog
Here are a few of the pages from those posts.

The past ten years, I have spent surfing 3rd point Malibu and I can finally paint the pier with some kind of confidence.

Been using a Cintiq at work and trying to get better with my digital work and find a way to work that I can enjoy and not be frustrated by clicking around too much. These are a few color studies and whatnot.

Have also been working on perfecting my working method for rendering my figure drawings.

Other than that, been super busy with work and freelance stuff. Please check out the Nomads Draw blog, I will probably post there a little more regularly.

Hope everyone is well and Aloha to all my amigos out there!!

Dragonlance model scale

July 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

The movie release for this was really poorly done. These books were great when I was a kid and actually still are. I’m taking it upon myself to design the property the way I would like to see it. Just a fun side project to pass the late nights.

Idiocracy

March 22nd, 2010 · 5 Comments

Upon suggestion from a buddy I did this piece for my reel to bring things to a bit more polish than is possible working in games. It was a lot of fun especially after doing the 2D piece. The traditional stuff helps so much and applies to everything. The biggest advantage is that it makes you think carefully about every frame. Anywho, click on the image for the quicktime.

A few more finished pieces to come very shortly…but this is one of my favorites so far. There is a big Hawaiian guy that goes with this girl. The CTN Animation Expo is coming up this weekend so I am busy getting ready for that. Hopefully I can color up another piece beforehand.

This is a lifeguard station at Nicholas Canyon a.k.a. Zeroes. I had a great day surfing there and have wanted to paint a picture of that station for a while. I am working on another one from a different point of view and done on a more cloudy sort of day.

Until next time ladies and gentlemen!!

Sketchbook slam Part 1

October 7th, 2009 · 6 Comments

These were all done within the last month. I have a thick sketchbook that I stopped using a while back because it is a pain to scan the images. But I really hate to waste the paper so I figured I would finish it off. Got about 20 more pages or so til the end. I’ll post some stuff from the last month or two that is on my clipboard in Part 2.

Julie Fishing Painted

September 20th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Aloha!! So I haven’t tried a full on painting in acrylics like this ever. And tonight from a brief conversation found out I need to look into the uses of a badger brush as well as a spray bottle (other than getting in a water gun fight with my nieces). I shall find the secrets of these mysterious items for my next attempt.

On another note. Thank you to all who showed up to the Nomad Gallery’s first show. It was a great time and truly awesome to see you all there. And a super thank you to all the artists who showed, you guys are a huge inspiration. I hope to keep the thing going as long as you are willing to show.

Julie Fishing Pencil Render

September 2nd, 2009 · 11 Comments

Planning a traditional painting of this one so wanted to solve a bunch of value problems first. It is so relaxing to do these things, I think ten years ago the reason I couldn’t get these done is I was way too hyper. Drawing from life in the sketchbooks suited me then. My patience level and enjoyment of staying on one piece for a bit has gone up a bit I think. Anyways, look forward to the painting. Hope everyone is doing well!!
