Private Creature Design Lessons (and you don't even have to leave your home)!

Hey everyone, Sorry it's been a while but I have been working on a portfolio style book for CTN with lots of new images and a few retouched oldies. It probably will be a softback with 20-30 pages (double sided of course)of images including sketchbook sketches as well as final color images. It will be out soon and I will share a few images that will be in the book as soon as I can. Please contact me if you are interest in buying one! Meanwhile I also wanted to announce that I am opening up time to teach via the internet, with live conversations and demos based completely around your specific needs as a future creature/character designer or and industry professional who just wants another opinion! Anyway contact me if you are interested in more details.

A True Monster

Hey all,
     It's been a while.  Lots going on, but I decided, while reading Guns of August, to change things up and do a painting of a real life monster, Kaiser Wilhelm II, the German Emperor of WWI.  Fun stuff, but now it's back to some not-so-real monsters :)

Movie Screenshot Studies

Hey everyone,
    I am practicing my color with some movie screenshot studies.   One is from Tudors and the other is from Spartacus.  I guess they aren't movies, but you know what I mean :P The lower image (from Sparatus) started as a demo for my class at Gnomon.
