STAR WARS - Edge of the Empire

Ahh wow! been awhile since I updated. Lots have happened. First off I'm cranking away on some secret stuff at Epic games, I know, I do you define secret? well stuff I can't show and really talk about it :). Epic Games is one of the few places that can handle my twisted imagination, I feel right at home with them because they are just as twisted ;).

Secondly before I got to Epic I completed my first piece of art for "Lucasfilm" might not mean much to many of you but any working illustrator who was influenced my Star Wars as a kid finds this to be an honor. This is the cover art for fantasy flight games "Star Wars the Edge of the Empire " beginner board game.

So it's been a very busy few months and alot of work to be done, but can't complain.

In June of 2009 I was contacted by famed film costume designer Mayes Rubeo to work on Disney's John Carter film directed by Andrew Stanton. Though I didn't work on it for to long it was fun while it lasted. I was able to get permission from Disney to post some of my designs.

Marauders of Doom

They came seeking battle and flesh, creatures spawned from the rotted depths of an unspeakable world, created by a twisted imagination.....

Painting heroes and cute dragons is fun but doing stuff like this is bloody orgasmic! Bad guys rule!
about a 1hr 45 min painting.

Lubbock Comicbook expo sketches

This past weekend I had an artist table at the Lubbock comic book expo in Lubbock Texas. I had a great time and met some really nice people. It's been a while since I've exhibited and had a table at a con. I'd forgotten about all the enthusiasm and fandom associated with what I do. It was also very humbling to be among fellow artist who's work were fantastic. I will definitely be back.
I did a few commission sketches for some of the attendees, here they are.

Getting back to working on my compositions, it always helps when you have elongated weapons like
swords, spears and lances, they lead the eye.
