The Powerful Princess

Story idea I am developing. Love the dragon, and had some fun designing the princess.

Robot Arena Deathmatch

A slight departure from my usual style, but I wanted to participate in the character design challenge, and I wanted to do something simple. I have always been interested in the value and weight of linework, and for this piece, I wanted to straight up simple lines, using the pencil tool in Corel Painter. I had a basic concept, started doodling, and ended up with this behemoth. Hope you enjoy.

A boy and his space dinosaur

Nothing seems more likely than a boy to have a pet dinosaur. So why not set it in space?

Walking the dinosaur

Nothing like trying to dust off my dinosaur drawing skills. Needed an excuse to create a story, and there is nothing more interesting that how you would take care of your own dino-pet.

Storm Damage

This is the second piece of artwork I did for the SCBWI Narrative Art Award.  I do like the linework I created, and the layered lines of art. Hope you enjoy.

Before the Storm

This is one of three pieces I submitted for the SCBWI Narrative Art Award. I purposely left out the background to focus on the two characters, the bird and the girl. I am experimenting with a crosshatching technique for color which allows me to bring out textures that I don’t know if I could do with flat colors. I can also bring a variety of colors into the patterns to run the gamut of the color palette.

Space Chickens

Of course, there are many things to fear in space, and it just so happens that my protagonist has a problem with space chickens. I enjoyed coming up with the design and the “egg” emblem. I even tried to squeeze in a spaceship, but it was a bit too cramped. I think I could add more chickens if I wanted to. You can never have enough.
