Dice

commissions

An Angel Lite commission.

I’m not sure I’m feeling Dice here. I don’t really engage with the concept, but he’s just half of a pair, so maybe I’ll get it more when I do the next one…

Avengers of OZ

commissions

This started out as a costume design- an extension of Iron Man, but  I don’t think I’ll ever get to it. Still, the idea intrigues me and if I could get a few more together on it I think I’d like to explore it further.

Tub of Terror pitch

commissions So, my friend Angelique was throwing around an idea for a terrible movie, and the more I heard of it, the more I though this really should be done up as a Tub of Terror comic. Even though Violent Blue is over,  I still had the templates and threw this together as a kind of back-handed pitch.13062295_1166506843393737_1631142334182346014_n


Food poisoning

commissions

The actual definition
Food Poisoning: Illness caused by food contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, or toxins.

My friend Rhonda’s definition
Food Poisoning: BUT IT SMELLED OK!!!! OMG MY STOMACH!!!! MY PUKE TASTES LIKE RICE AND BEANS DEFILED BY SATAN!!!! WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME YOU LEFT IT OUT!?!?! SOMEBODY IS GETTING A VOODOO DOLL MADE FOR THIS!!!!!!

That just screams for illustration doesn’t it?

Edge

commissions

An Angel Lite commission.

The tough thing about Edge is that the Ninja has been done to death and it’s hard to make him a composite of the Mortal Kombat template and/or Shredder without tipping too far in either direction. The blades are still important though. I almost wonder if I didn’t put enough on- then I think of the way Shredder looked in the TMNT movie and realize less is more.

Knight ad

commissions

Back in the early days of doing A Knight No One Forgets for Angel Lite comics, I was pushing the deadline hard but still needed to get some art out to generate buzz. I ended up grabbing some of my favorite images and compositing this quick ad. It’s one of the few KnightWolf images I’ve ever done any color on.

Eagle Eye

commissions

I really dig this design, which has a lot of influence on it from the Sorceress in He-Man. Not sure which Angel Lite series she’ll be appearing in, but here she is. Eagle Eye a.k.a. Melissa Wright LaDonna’s cousin she can fly and has of an eagle

Christmas graphics

commissions

 As we head into Christmas I wanted to show off a little bit of work done for the company website . I always changed the blog button during Christmas time to the santa hat image, just a little bit of fun on the web page.

Back when I was with Holland Computers, I notced that the graphic designer always created holiday wallpapers for the used computers and I loved the idea, so I’ve done the same  for subsequent companies I’ve worked for. The business card is a scan which was translated into a 2d object, but the entire graphic is rendered in Bryce 5Christmas

I always like to see as running on the demo machine in the front and usually will create some basic stuff that also ends up on the company blog site. Here are a few of my favorites….

commissions

This is one of my favorite graphics. A soft portrait that gets the message across immediately, simply. This photo was actually shot on my workbench with my test equipment, arranged just so…. I added the text on the computer screen and played with the shading to give it that quiet moment look.
