A speed painting and 3d

Ahh its been a while since I've updated. With work and another baby on the way I have my hands full. Things are going good, I wrapped up my work on John Carter of Mars and am fully immersed on a graphic novel/comic book with Radical comics. It's a lot of work but I like the challenge. I've also been working with Blizzard on some World of Warcraft tcg art, cant post those yet. I actually had fun painting scenes from that universe, quite a change up from my darker pieces.

Below is a speed painting I did to loosen up a bit. Also a head sculpt I did in Mudbox titled "Smiling Bastard ". The alien ships were created with a nifty little program called "easy toy" its a sketch based modeler and man its great for 3d challenged guys like me . Textures and rendering was done in Photo shop cs4.

The evolution of my art is ongoing, and I've been at it since I was old enough to hold a pencil. Professionally I've been working as an illustrator/concept artist and art director since 1989. I've worked on book covers , game box art, video game art , matte paintings and costume designs for Film and now finally I get to work on a graphic novel for a major comic book publisher. The circle is not complete though until I write, concept and illustrate my own graphic novel which has been ongoing for sometime now. When I am far enough along to show something I definitely will. I will also be looking at potential publishers as well as this will be the pure Targete, unfiltered , unchained and out to shock :). I will definitely give the fans what they have been asking me for a long time.

As soon as I am allowed to unveil art from the graphic novel project I surely will. I appreciate all the support and kind emails I receive about my artwork.
