Revisited an old piece from my senior portfolio. I'm getting a better handle on a digital painting workflow for myself, at least for mostly character-based stuff. Things are feeling less...mushy.

I'd like to think that my skills have improved since I graduated college, and there were so many things about the original that bothered me over time. But looking back, while the technical execution was lacking in the original, the fundamentals of the value structure and colors were relatively sound. I'm sure over time I'll look at this and it'll bother me just like the original gouache version, but for now I'm mostly content.

A friend of mine said looking at this illustration made him want lemonade. I seem to get those kinds of comments more often than I expect; it's nice to know that my artwork can have that effect on people.

News! and MOAR figure drawing.

Exciting news! I have a shipped title. :) Lately I've been working with a small team of artists to make a mobile game called Zero the Hero, which is now available for download in the Apple App store. So far we only have an iPad version available, but an iPhone version is in the works. Please check it out!

I worked on a little bit of everything, ranging from backgrounds, character design, animation, level assets, and even some sound editing and social media management. 

Here's a bit of the art I did:

In other news, you may have noticed the url for this blog is back to the original blogspot address. That's because I have a brand new portfolio website!

And, because this is technically a sketchblog, have some drawings.

(Some of the most common search terms that bring people to this blog are "figure drawing" and "fun poses". I guess I do post a considerable amount of figure drawing stuff.)

Impromptu afternoon.

Trying something a little out of the norm for me.
