PS2 Resident Concepts



More concept art for that old PS2 game that got shelved. Concepts of the background people that inhabit the game. The world was 40s inspired but I looked at anything vintage. JC Leyendecker was definitely an inspiration (even though it probably doesn't look like it).



These were concepts for the workers around the city. It gave me an opportunity to incorporate some military elements, spats, jodhpurs, and leather which are always fun to design.

Legolas vs Azog



My girlfriend's son, Tomi, wanted me to draw him a picture of Legolas. I was hoping to do something simple but the the more I put it off the more I got art directed. A picture of Legolas became Legolas in an action pose shooting arrows into an orc. I decided to put in Azog (who Legolas never fights) and have Legolas wearing Narsil (which isn't his sword). I drew Azog pretty loose since this was taking me forever thinking I would be done with it. Tomi loved it! But ... he had more notes :( "Could you tighten up Azog and add some arrows sticking out of him? Pleeeeesseee!" ... And here it is. Art: me, Art Direction: Tomi Lin.

Old PSM Lineart

Old illustrations for Playstation Magazine back in the late 90's.




Grey Fox from Metal Gear Solid and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7. I think this was for best "bad guys" in video games of that year. It's been touched up a little from the original since the internet was new back then and I didn't have much reference for Grey Fox. I don't even think he had a name back when the first MGS game came out. He was just referred to as the "Ninja".

Old Exalted RPG Stuff

Sometime in the early 2000's I did some illustrations for Whilte Wolf Publishing's RPG, Exalted: The Dragon-Blooded and Caste Book: Twilight.


Interior. Scene of Horakinis spying on some Dragon-Blooded dudes.


Illustration for the spell "Stoneskin"



Interior art. Horakinis taking a stand against ... Werewolves? ... Cat people? I can't remember. I modified some of  their sizes since they were off by quite a bit. I scaled and shrunk to make it look less bad.

Lineup of the characters I designed off of descriptions.

Batgirl and Robin



Originally this was a study for a piece I was going to do for a friend. Ultimately it didn't happen but I still kind of liked the rough so decided to clean it up and put some tones on it. These were based off of the Young Justice design done by Phil Buorassa and slaughtered by my own incapability of drawing any other way.

Girl Concepts

Old concept work I did back in the late 90s for an online clothing store that is no longer existing. The concept, if I remember correctly, was they wanted a mascot avatar that would interact with it's customers as they navigated through the website.

They wanted a cute hip girl and sadly I know absolutely nothing about hipster fashion.

Alien vs Predator


AVP. An old Aliens vs Predator drawing I did back in the late 90s.  I can't for the life of me remember the comic book series where the Aliens had the numbers painted on their heads. I think it had scientists on a floating space lab. The Alien 4 movie took elements from that book.




Old Predator study.

Old Elf Stuff

I've decided to shut down itchstudios.com since I never update it anyways. With sites like Blogger and DeviantArt, it makes posting art faster, easier, and all around less of a hassle for me. I'll be posting up some of the old stuff that I still kind of like just for posterity.




"Arms"



Elf Warrior




Elf Warrior "Undaunted"


Winged Girl

Black Widow




I'm not sure what my fascination with Black Widow is but in thinking of something to draw for the blog, this came out. There are perspective problems with the gun and magazines ... probably with the figure too while I'm at it. One of these days I will put some more thought into what I'm going to do before I draw it.

 *Edit: I changed her right foot. It was kind of reading as a stump so I went for a safer angle. And added her bracelet to make her more Black Widow-y.

Iron Man



I didn't have any real design idea when I started this. I was just having fun pushing shapes around. Well it started out fun then got frustrating when I realized it was all over the place. It's wildly inconsistent but it's done as far as I'm concerned.

Darkseid and Misc Superman/Batman Apocalypse Characters

The Green Lantern animated series is winding down. As I was clearing space off of my computer I found this Darkseid turn we did for Superman/Batman Apocalypse back from the DTVs. I did the initial design and Jeff Johnson did the actual turn.

When we were going through the approval process, we were instructed to make his head bigger. But director Lauren Montgomery decided to revert him back to the original "small head" version when she did her attitude sheets. That's why she is a badass in my book haha.

I've adjusted the model and proportions to the longer and less squat version and did a quick shadow treatment on it.

The second is a page of initial sketches for the Furies (Guilotina, Mad Harriet, Lashina, and Stompa). Based off of Michael Turner's designs from the comicbook.

The third is a page of other secondary characters (Granny Goodness, Treasure, Harbinger, and Artemis) again based off of Michael Turner's designs.




The last is Doomsday.
