All-Star Olympics

I did a series of illustrations for the 2016 Rio Olympics using a sports themed character from our webcomic: "Super Skooled"

Every Day for 16 day's I drew a new image with a different event.

 

 
 

  
  
 
 
  



And it's all come down to this.

Heroes vs. Villains... sort of.


So a fiend... uh, I mean friend of mine (Logan Schell) have come together to work on a new web comic. it's an idea we've been batting around for a few years and decided that if anything's ever going to happen, we need to stop talking and start doing.

Presenting:

SUPER SKOOLED



We'll be launching the website soon. For now check out SUPERSKOOLED on Facebook.

Building an Art Computer

When the time came to buy a new art computer, I decided to build it myself.
Here it is...


... sorta...
PARTS:
Motherboard: ASUS z97-e ATX LGA-1150
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series, CX600M
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.40 GHz
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD
& Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB
Case: Corsair Carbide Series Black 500R
(I have no idea what the 500R stands for)


My old computer being taken apart to salvage some parts.


Inside of the new machine

Did I mention the GTX-970 Graphics Card?
(*sniff* so beautiful...)

 
I learned a lot working on this machine...    

... like always have your computer guy with you while you do it.

about 2 months, $1300, and infinite frustrations later, here it is!

Look at the size compared to my old computer.


Works like a dream :)

I think I'll call it: "COMPY"

Kells Characters Re-imagined

I watched "The Secret of Kells" the other night and just had to draw these three.

Took some creative licence obviously, especially with Aisling. I thought about that long, flowing, almost supernatural hair of hers and thought: "What if her dress were an extension of her hair?"

It was fun to draw, I like it. What do you think?

Sea Chef

This was my entry for the July "Character Design Challenge". 

Every month they post a new theme and hundreds of artists submit their vision of a character to match that theme.
This months theme is: Master Chef.


It was shark week so I thought I'd do something appropriate.

Ahem...

"Down beneath the waves of Tokyo Bay lies the best kept secret in Japan:"Fin's Sushi Bar" where expert chef "Fin Wanizame", a Japanese Tiger Shark, filets up something tasty for a clientele used to breathing underwater.

Chef Fin crafts gourmet items of choice, using only the finest, meats, kelp, kale, and seaweed, straight from the source. His sushi, crab legs, calamari, and fish tacos are guaranteed to be local, fresh, and organic, attracting many Hipster mermaids to his place."

I thought it was clever.

This was my other idea
