Illustration Friday - Ahead

Hey guys, so I have been growing more confident with the work I've been putting out so I figured I'd actually put this one up on the IF site, hope you guys enjoy my take on it.

For some reason I automatically thought of this movie with the word Ahead, and thought how ironic if it was 8 bit... not much of a story I know but hey, retro movies and video games rock me hard.

Here it is.


Hope you enjoyed it.

Illustration Friday - Linked

Hey guys, last illustration for the day. Now I'm going to preface this by saying, my sense of humor is a little... immature. I've had this idea for months now and never really had the proper reason to actually follow through with it, well that was until Illustration Friday's "Linked". The idea is once again pretty straight forward, Slimer from the Ghostbusters likes to indulge himself in busting as well ;).


Hope you guys laughed a little on this one, I laughed the whole time I was drawing/colouring it. All of this one was done in illustrator.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Illustration Friday - Dip

Hey guys, second illustration for the day. I call this one "Hopeless Romantic" because no matter how vulgar and twisted I am, there is a romantic side to me somewhere, or so I think haha. Concept was a solid one, real heart dipped in chocolate fondue!


Hope you enjoyed this one as much as I did, all of it was done in Photoshop.

Illustration Friday - Rescue

Hey guys, three new illustrations for the day, actually really happy with the ones incoming. This one was for Illustration Friday's "Rescue". The idea for it was a demon doctor, and since one of the few things that truly freak me out is demon children, I decided to make it in that style.


Simple but effective, all done in Illustrator, hope you liked it.

Storyboards - Panda Puffs

So long overdue, but better late then never, here are my storyboards and thumbnails for Panda Puffs.

We'll start with the concept. The idea was that the Panda, whom is more of a human with business suit and tie, is arriving home from a long day at work, raining hard, everything is grey around him, and reminders of the recession of 2009 all around him. I wanted the idea to draw from graphic novels mostly, and when he arrived at home he would be greeted with a bowl of Panda Puffs, and after he eats it, the screen goes from greyscale to full colour, and it stops raining outside. "Panda Puffs has been there with you through it all".


Now for the storyboards;

Storyboard 1

Storyboard 2

Storyboard 3

I did a few more but these were the ones I was... sort of happy with. I had a hard time with this project, just couldn't get the form of the panda himself down. Loved the concept I came up with, disliked the execution.

Deadly Designs

So I've taken Leif's advice and have began to stop listening to what others want and start making art that I enjoy.

Deadly Designs started, nerd alert, from video games I've played for years. The nickname originally started in a game created Diablo 2, and I've stuck with it. Now when Leif said he wanted us to create our own persona, this automatically came to mind. I've always enjoyed either a) nerdy fan art and b) "violent" art. So when confronted with a project in Corel Draw to make a personal ad, I came up with this, and believe I will start to create art more in these directions.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Sonic the Hedgehog Laptop Skin

Hey guys, illustration incoming. 4:30 am, can't sleep and thought I would finally upload this thing. Although I was very happy with the characters and background itself, I had mistakenly thought the project was due the week after and had to throw filler text in. I wanted to throw in a winding road from one of the Sonic levels from back in the day, but had only hours to finish it up. I am happy with EVERYTHING, but the text.

Sonic Laptop Skin

Hope you liked it, maybe sometime soon I'll go back and put the road in.
