Van Helsing Project

Here are roughs sketches I did as demos for my Character Design Class....wish I had more time to do more but my time has been very limited lately.
I am having my students redesign/design characters for Van Helsing. The students are coming up with some really nice drawings so far. Looking forward in seeing these designs through to the end! Let me know what you think of the sketches? See you all later.

Pages from Nueva York Sketchbook

Here's two pages from my Nueva York sketchbook. Their pretty much are random designs of characters that I just put on paper. Maybe I'll develop some of the these doodles further in the future.
To work on these sketches I used straight blue pencils to lay in the shapes then went onto with inks and gray markers. Let me know what you think of these pieces. I'm working bit at a time on finishing up my other sketchbook, Merida. I'll check you guys out later!

BG Design for Animax

Here's a couple of Background designs to be used for a couple of flash based games that I did for Animax Entertainment back in August. They're where used as design guides for the Flash artist to use. I still haven't seen the games, but they should be online now.
The line work was done in pencils then I scanned them in and colored them in Photoshop, nothing fancy just nice and loose with both pieces.

Two pages from my Japon Sketchbook

Here's another two pages from my Japon Sketchbook. I really did have fun filling this book out with all sorts of doodles and ideas. I still need to work in the Nueva York and Merida sketchbooks. Hell, I have other books that need their pages filled....need to get to those as soon as I have sometime. Dang, I have so much to do so little time.
I have project with BooBooKitty that I'm working on. Still doing character development for that. There's a comic book project with my buddy Tony that I want to get off the ground as well. Then there's the latest Backspace project...boy I'm looking forward in putting that together with my long time bud, Geoff. Man, thinking about it and looking at my To Do List, I have quite a bit of stuff lined up. But some may happen while others not so much.
I will be teaching this coming term over at Gnomon. I still haven't figured out what will be the project theme that I'll be throwing at the kids. I do want to make it fun but they do have to work, though.
Hopefully, everyone is having fun so far in the 3rd day of the new year. Catch you all later.

Sketches from Japon

Here's a couple of pages that I uploaded from my Japon Sketchbook. I used a mech pencil and Micron pens for these round of sketches. Got some exciting news this morning on a project that I'll be working on this new on that will be coming soon. Well...thinking I really can't give that much details for the fact that I signed a NDA...but I can give you an idea later on what I'll be producing.

Catch you all later,

First Sketch of 2009

Hey all, hope the first day of the year has inspired you to kick ass for the next 364 days of the year!
The image that I post above is from the first page of my Merida sketchbook. It's done all in ink using Sakura's Pigma Micron Pens, sizes 005 and 02. Then I used my grey (cool) Tria markers, to add some texture and tone to the center drawing. Also can't forget the use of my white colored pencil for some high lights. If anyone have any questions about certain drawing process please feel free to ask.
