Mini Inca Warrior

This little piece of artwork was done as part of a private art jam. For those not familiar with art jams, think of music jam sessions, but instead of musicians playing instruments, we have artists creating art.

I’m hoping to participate in some of these jam sessions every couple of weeks, try out some different styles, and most of all get some creative juices going.

To kick-off my contribution to the last week's theme of South America, I present to you my mini Inca warrior!

Glitter Boy Banner!

Unfortunately, with the new design of Palladium Books' website they weren't able to make use of the animated Glitter Boy banner I created; which means, I get to play with it myself. YAY! So, for the next little while I'll be using it as my own title banner (above). Alas, Blogger is a little finiky when it comes to working with SWF files, so if you want to replay the banner from the beginning, simply hover the cursor over the banner and it'll play again. I figure that might be better and less distracting than having it continuously loop over and over.

What do you think of the banner, drop me a line in the comments below and let me know!  :)

Happy Belated New Year!!

Okay, so it’s May already... Happy New Year, all the same!

The past few months have been crazy hectic. I’ve gotten sick twice, ran a secret workshop, drew some interior art, worked on some animation, and started work on the cover for the Robotech® New Generation™ Sourcebook. Of course, all this while teaching my regular classes.
I did mention animation... although that will also have to wait until the next update. There’s a couple things I’m waiting on before I can show them to you. So, until then, here’s art for Rifter #54, the last chapter of the Hammer of the Forge, and likely my last contribution to the Rifter.

The picture was a collaboration piece between myself and another great artist, Nicholas Hendriks, who’s wonderful artwork can be found here: http://nicholashendriks.com/ .
We were both rushed a bit due to many different factors, but suffice it to say, I think it turned out alright. Nick designed the composition/layout, while I drew up the details, and Nick finished off with the tones. Despite not getting to put in as much time as we hoped, it was a lot of fun, and I hope I’ll get to do it again some time!

Anyway, here’s the pic below:
