Mountain man

Character design for Sam Nielson's painting class. I wanted to do something less than a normal generic hero. Here is what I came up with. The first is a dressed a little too busy with a boring pose and the revision might be a little too plainly dressed. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!

First pass:

Famdamily + Me

Here is a new version of my family pic with myself added. This was per request of my mother because she hated not having all the kids together in one pic. Hope you you like it mommy. Enjoy.

This is a second version for all those of you who didnt like my first one...I still like it better :)


First attempt at Corel Painter

This assignment was done for Sam Nielson's Digital painting class. It was really tough to add in the colors there. It is one thing to understand value, but totally something else to incorporate color into it. I'm not entirely pleased with this one, but It is the final product that I put out. Honestly I know there is something wrong with it, but I just cant figure out how to make it look right. Anyway It was a lot of fun painting it and actually learning the things that I did. The line work was done by the fantastic Joe Olson. I painted this in Corel painter X. Enjoy.

Little green mans

I scribbled these two guys out in about an hour and a half. I am trying to stray from the floating heads and strictly human bodies. I find myself taking a lot more time on my line work lately, which is a very good thing in my eyes. I just wish I could trim down that time a little bit. I'm sure it will come with time if I keep practicing. I'll get these guys painted if I get the time now that school started :) Thanks for looking, and enjoy!
