Game Informer Cover.

The guys at Bungie gave me an awesome oppertunity to work on Halo Reach's first magazine cover. I worked hand in hand with art director Aaron LeMay to create this final image that game informer used for their Feb. 2010 issue. What made this image more challening to execute was the fact that every detail needs to be rendered out for print. It was definitely interesting to see how far I can take the painting in the given time. I will try to give permissions to post some of the thumbnail and sketches to show the though process of creating the picture.

I hope all you Halo Fans like it :D

It's a Tricycle!

I've decided to work on subjects that I don't normally get to work on at work to balance out my continuing self education. Anyways here's a vehicle sketch I did while watching some wacky chinese talk shows. It was a fun exercise and I learned a couple things while working on it.

Michael Jackson's Neverland

This started out as a joke between me and my friends a while back. We talked about doing concepts of MJ as Peter Pan and Prince as his nemesis Captain Hook. I never really got around to doing it until recently. Too bad now MJ passed on, there's no chance for something awesome like this being realized.

Here are some work in progress shots ,MJ as Peter Pan, Prince as Captain Hook, and Danny DeVito as Smithy. I'll clean these up and keep the updates coming. Oh yea, if anyone knows any good web designers and programmers please throw them my way :)

More painting less photoscrapping.

It's been more than half a year since I moved to Seattle. The Seattle rain is definitely a change from the sunny Cali that I've been getting used to since I moved to the states. Work has been keeping me busy most of the time but I'll be posting regularly again from now on.
