Nelly Process

Just finished this portrait of my friend. Here are a few step shots of how I got it done.
Top left is the sketch. Then on the second image I start to add flat shading. Next I start to punch lights and darks. Finally I add color on a color layer and add some texture for the background with some slight painterly strokes.

Stereotype Series

My goal was to depict different types of stereotypes in an over the top sort of way, to poke fun  at the fact that we place our selves in certain groups because of the way we dress or wear our hair. I learned a great deal about digital painting in the process and a few new techniques.

Hero Series

I had never really dove into fan art. I did not know until now how awesome it is to do work which you are completely inspired by. I think out of anything I have done, (artwise) this has been the most satisfying and best learning experience since college. I tackled a technique which I have never tried, I found a passion in creating characters that I love and re-imagining them. I will probably continue pulling from characters which inspire me in the future.

Soon to come and very excited about it, is my series of super heroes that I plan to do. First on the done list is Aquaman!!! I know: Not that exciting but, I thought Aquaman could use a makeover because and I always thought he looked too whimpy. So hopefully this one is a little more manly. Enjoy!

Computer Failure:(

Just when I was getting in the groove and whipping new and exciting Illos out, my computer decides to be a pain in my left cheek, and crash!!! It's been about a week and a half and I'm going insane!!! I have no idea if I'm going to lose everything!!!! I really hate technology sometimes....why can't it just work like its supposed to....

Busy, Busy

I really don't get too much time to do any of my own work, meaning work that I would like to to do for fun. And sometimes I even forget that I have this blog,.. lol. But here are some of my latest pieces, and they are pretty old now. I'm hoping to have some new, (for fun) stuff coming here soon. Confidentiality agreements and things of that nature won't allow me to show off what has been taking up my time:)

Hey, I know I haven't posted anything in a while but its because I have been busy.. Which is a good thing right...Here is some of the freelance projects I've had the pleasure of working on. Minus the flash animation jobs which I am not sure how to post. But anyway..this one above and the other anatomy looking illlustration are medical illustration for Dr.Gray, (funniest doctor ever)... Have done some pretty cool things and still working on some.

This one and the one that resembles this one are for shirt designs. I got the honor of working on some of these with Wes. We did a whole lot of these.

These two are a couple out of the four which I did for my friend in the UK David. Love doing these. They are illustrations for his story.

And We have white brights....its blue on my screen for some reason right now but maybe it will go back to normal are a total of like 16 of different ones just like these. Used for a booklet instructing people on how to use the teeth whitening kit. ...Very cool stuff...:) Smile!!!

These and other things have been keeping me busy lately and keeping change in my pocket. Freelance is cool but man I want a JOB!!!!!! lol...Anybody want to collab on some stuff I am down!!!!! Thanks you all
