Some Character Design work

I'd love to share the story behind all this work, but am just happy to be able to post it.

Rocksteady & Bebop

 Last week I did a quick sketch of Bebop, couldn't move on to the next thing without doing a similar treatment to his ole pal Rocksteady. Still just having fun with color.
 With the latest go at of TMNT in theaters right now, I was reminded of what a huge part of my childhood these guys were.
Thanks as always for swinging by! Cheers!

Adventures in Space!

Two different approaches to the same illustration. Really feel like I could push to recolor this one a few more times. I'm really having fun trying out new things. I'v been reading Fear Agent by Rick Remender lately. Awesome series, and definitely what inspired this dude.

The Saloon

Just having some fun with color and shape. I did a color study to play around with my options below.

So this is the second of the two cards I did for Cryptozoic's trading card series. I have to say, to have done these both was pretty cool. I remember as a kid collecting the Marvel Masterpiece series as well as a Wolverine series of trading cards. The Wolverine series was my favorite. I think I still have those cards somewhere. The series comprised of roughly 100 cards, 6 of which were special chrome or foil plated ones. They had this shiny surface element to them, I believe the one specifically I had from the Wolverine series had Omega Red on it. Well, the good folks over at Cryptozoic sent me a handful of cards, personal copies of my 2 cards to keep, and low and behold, one of each were given the fancy shiny reflective treatment! Total geek out moment! I'm not sure I'll be fortunate enough to do a base card again, but I'll forever be stoked to have that moment of seeing my art in a shiny trading card. Inner ten year old me is grinning like a fool. Huge thanks to George and the gang at Cryptozoic!

Katana & Starling

One of two trading cards I had the honor of designing for a recent series Cryptozoic released.

More Regular Show BGs

These layouts are from the same episode that I drew the car interiors for. Interesting thing about these, is that most are used really for reference and reproduction for the animators over seas. Well at least the BG below here, and the one down at the bottom. The above was a static shot I believe, as is the third one down.

 Hope me sharing these Regular Show BGs is interesting. I'm actually under a pretty gnarly work deadline right now, and don't have much free time to do more then share some older work for now.

 I'll drop the last 3 layouts for this episode tomorrow. And truth be told, will most likely just continue to roll out the remainder of what I have to share from my work on Regular Show while I'm at it.
Until next time!

May the 4th be with you!

Took a second pass at an older sketch I'v always wanted to paint. I'm much happier with it this time, but still feel like there's plenty of room for improvement.

Humbled by Car Interiors (More Regular Show BG's)

   I had a lengthy little thought all about humility and hard work I was going to write up for this post, but upon talking through my idea with my wife today, I stumbled upon a better message I think I might share later this week.
  The gist behind my thoughts on humility and hard work and why these car interiors related is simply boiled down to this: These two layouts were probably the hardest two for me to grasp since pitching in duties working with the wonderful folks over at CN. I could go on and on about the process from the boards I worked from to the numerous revisions I received before finally getting things nailed down correctly. I learned a lot. In fact it's safe to say I learned more getting things wrong as apposed to the BGs I received minor revisions on. It's easy to let failure grow into something worse in your head.
  The best thing to do is just swallow it, work hard, learn, and grow.
