Turn around fun

This is part of a fan based story my friends Jarel Kingsberry and Wendell Whittaker have been wanting to turn into a series of animated shorts. I was asked to kind of adapted Iron man's design into something of my own that was a little more heavy set, and this is what I ended up with.

Birthday fun

This is a birthday present to my friend and fellow artist, Brian Traynor. The orange wrestler is a personal character of his.

What I've been doodling lately~!

Here are just a couple things I've been filling up my sketchbook with. Some are pieces of stories I've been bouncing around in my head while others are just studies of the facial structure and posture. 

Above: This is a creature design that's meant to be a spirit animal/demon thing involved in a story I'm playing with.

Below left: This started out as just trying to take a break from school work to draw what I felt like drawing, but I ended up really liking the character so I'll probably put together a fun short story with this guy.
Studies for practice.

Artist forum sketches

So we're in the midst of an Artist forum with guests C.B. Cebulski from marvel and Scottie Young, and as usual I drew them as they talked or gave a demo. So here ya go! Also I realized I didn't post my sketches from the last artist forum with Ryan Stegman, Ramon Perez, and Nick Dragotta So I'll attach those here as well!

Western Anthology!

Hey guys! I have a western short that I did the art for coming out in an anthology that's soon to be released. I'll update you on the details as soon as I'm given the official information. Here are the first three pages to give you an idea of what it's about!

Figurine plans

So I've partnered up with my friend Travers Cooke in the establishment of a small toy company with themed sculptures and figurines as our focus. Maquettes and sculpture are my second love so I'm incredibly excited to get this rolling. We're currently planning a line of figures for a female elite military squad that is in a futuristic post-apocalyptic setting, and are getting together the first of the lot. This one is more focused on stealth. The next one I'm reeeeally excited for because it's going to be a explosive expert, but here is the concept for lady stealth thus far. There will probably be some edits through the sculpting process but yes. Hurrah!

Page preview!

Here's a sneak peak at a 22 page intro I've been working on. The story is written by Lisa Tolbert and is a military based fantasy story. It's been a slow process, trying to get this done on the side with a million other things going on like school and additional plans and stories, but it's finally coming together.
