Nigh of the Tentacles Movie Poster!

Here's a movie poster I did for an independent film called Night of the Tentacles. You can find the facebook page here!
This is my grindhouse version of the poster. I've always wanted to see if I could do something in this style because I do love good bad movies of that era.

This is the normal version of the poster. This was drawn digitally in Manga Studio EX 4 and then colored in Adobe Photoshop.

Here's my initial gray tone rough that I based the final image on. I do this to help me envision my light sources and composition of the piece.

You can check out the director of the movie's website, Dustin Mills, here.

Galerians T-Shirt Design Contest Entry

Here's my entry to a t-shirt design contest based on a PS1 video game called Galerians.
It was part of a internet video show called Super Replay, run by GameInformer, wherein they finish a game to completion while recording themselves talk about the game. This particular game was about 9 hours long. I enjoy watching their videos and I decided to enter their t-shirt design contest, which they have after beating the game. I haven't seen them announce a winner, so my fingers are crossed. You can check out this link to see the Super Replay: LINK

MOLD! Poster progression!

Here are more pictures showing the work in progress for Neil Meschino's movie MOLD!
I'm done with about 75% of the painting in these photos. 

All these photos were taken with a simple digital camera. So I can't wait to finish and show the final image taken with a more appropriate camera to show the true hues and values.

Zenescope Entertainment's Grimm Fairy Tales: Dream Eater Saga #08 Sinbad One-Shot

Here are the first dozen of the pencils I did for the comic book. Other talented people did the script and coloring of the finished book. I've never drawn any arabian-themed subjects before, so this book was fun to research for.
This comic was part 8 of Zenescope Entertainment's Dream Eater Saga, which was a company wide cross-over of their various universes and characters.  
Please go out to your local comic shop and pick up the issue!

MOLD! movie poster 02

Here's another installment of my painting process of the MOLD! movie poster for the film that my buddy created. Look to my post earlier in this month to see the initial production of this painting. 

This is the stage I start laying down all the shadows. I like to work from dark to light, so everything should look muddy and gray at this stage.

At this stage, I start to lay down the base colors of the various subjects across the painting.

I'm finally getting to the fun part of painting, where I do the rendering and modeling, building up the form of the subjects. In this case, I started on the three masked military dudes because they're the smallest subjects of the overall painting.

Overboard Rescue

Here's an illustration I was hired to produce. It's based on an old etching or engraving that I was given to emulate.

More "Chip:The 21st Century Superhero" images

Here's a recolored version of a prior drawing I posted. After learning more about computer coloring, I was able to add some extra effects and overall coolness to the drawing.

Here's the character Strong-Arms in all his villainous glory. I like the lighting effects I was able to use on this drawing.

Here's another of the Chip's villains named Virus. She has a history with Stanley and will be featured in future stories of the Chip.

This last image is a portrait of a young Stanley Ross and his family before he's destined to become the technological superhero of the 21st century. His uncle, Jeff, can be seen to the left.

MOLD! movie poster

A filmmaker friend of mine, Neil Meschino, has asked me to paint a poster for his awesome movie, MOLD!, a well done indie horror/comedy film. Here's my initial layout and preliminary work on the canvas. 
I lay down a layer of color just to get rid of the white of the gessoed canvas. Then I used carbon paper to transfer my linework, which I drew on the computer using Photoshop. I printed it all out on 15+ pages of 8.5"x11" and taped them together to make the full sized rough to transfer to my 24"x36" canvas. I then went over those lines with a ball point pen to finalize my layout for the painting. I only did this process because of the elaborate composition and likenesses needed of all the performers of the movie shown on the painting.  I'll be posting more of my painting process as I work through it.

This is my initial rough fully drawn in Adobe Photoshop. 

This is my first pass at laying down color for my underpainting.

Here's my second pass of underpainting to be used as a base color for my line work transfer.

Here's my printed layout of the drawing done in Photoshop. I taped all the pages together to make the full size of the canvas. Beneath this layout is a layer of carbon paper that will transfer my lines to the canvas as I retrace the lines of my rough.

The carbon paper didn't work as well as I hoped, so I went in with a ball point pen to fully realize my sketch on the canvas. This step is important because it's the compositional basis for the poster. I don't own a good camera to take pictures of the large size of the painting, so sorry for the flash ;)

I'll be posting more steps of my painting process until the piece is done. It has been awhile since I've painted so I'm excited to finish this!

Zenescope Entertainment's Grimm Fairy Tales #58

I was hired to do pencils for Zenescope Entertainment's Grimm Fairy Tales comic book series, which would be my first published work to be found at your local comic book store. Please go out and buy yourself a copy, please ;P 
The issue is Grimm Fairy Tales #58. I only did the pencils, it was written and colored by other very talented people. I've never read any of the other books of the series so it was a little tough to get into the universe and accurately depict the characters that many others have already defined. It was a great experience and I hope to have more published work to showcase. 

Below is page one.
Below is page two.
The x-es you see is where black is supposed to be. So imagine that the areas marked with an "x" is me "spotting blacks". I do that so I wouldn't need to spend time filling the area with pencil work. Other pages will have this, so please keep that in mind.

Below is page three.

Below is page four.

Below is page five.

Below is page fifteen. I decided to fill my blacks with a dark gray to show where I wanted to place blacks. 

Below is page sixteen.

Below is page seventeen.

Below is page eighteen.

Below is page nineteen.

Below is page twenty, one of my favorite pages of the issue. 

Below is page twenty-one.

Below is page twenty-two. 

If you enjoyed seeing these pages, please pick up an issue! I'll be doing some more work for  Zenescope, so I hope to posting up more work that I've done for them.
