The Boredom Jordans

I played for a basketball league in the Philippines and I was obsessed with Jordans back then. I remember trying to design Nike shoes all the time. I decided to take a shot at them again. Been using my Tablet PC a lot. Something to doddle during the football games today. The Chiefs suck.

Ominous the Red Ninja

This ia a old Sketch I ran across and decided to finish it for practice. I love robots and ninjas. My friend is a producer who also calls himself "Ominous Red". So it started out as practice then ended up as a tribute. Fun piece.

Samurai Fett Fabrication

I was asked to illustrate alternative views of this design for fabrication purposes. Hope it turns out good. Fingers crossed!

Halodad Production Art

The final film plates were provided to me from the director. For the eggtree design I used Max and Mudbox to get to a 50% solution then painted on top of them using Photoshop. Each matte took about 6-10 hours each. The matte with the giant pointy rocks I ended up painting from scratch. That's why it still looks like concept art and not as real as it should be. I need to find a better solution. I wish I could have spent more time on them. But I have very little of it these days. Great learning experience though. Need more practice.

Thanks to Luke Stewart for giving me permission to post these.

Feudal Yoda

After looking at this one for a while I'm not sure if I like this design. I think I got caught up in texturing before I realized this design wasn't working. Any way here is my Yoda for this time period. I figured his advantage is he can see everything. He even has 4 arms to fight in back and the front. The Asian text is made up. On to the next one.

Halodad matte production

Haven't been on here for a while. Been crazy busy.

These are some concept mattes I did for Halodad. We are still in concept phase so the objective is to just lay down rough comps. The director gave me plates to sketch on. I put just enough detail to sell the idea. Luckily the shots are locked off so no camera tracking. These are really fun to do. I can't wait to see the final shots.

Tutorial on Unicron

I was honored when 3dtotal asked me to create a tutorial of my Unicron Piece. It's on the front page now. It will be up for a week. After that I think the link changes. Any way if you catch it this week the link will work. After that I don't know. I'll try to update this entry when it does. Regardless I'm really excited about this exposure. A lot of masters dwell here.

Tutorial (sorry guys you have to copy and paste the link below)

Halodad Concept art

Production art for Halodad. Model and rendering done by See Ooi Lim who is young and incredibly talented.
Check his site when you get a chance.

I took his render and painted it into a scene. Since his works was so good I really didn't have to do much. Great job See Ooi! More to come.

Ol' Painless_ Finished

Really enjoyed this one. There are few perspective issues I see but I'll let this one go. Moving on to other pieces.

Game model concept

This was a quick turn around for a game company in town. Can't talk about the company or the game since it's still in development. A little under an hour on this one. Just a concept of some old barns. The game is centered around the Midieval time period.

New techniques

This was a block sketch from a few months ago. I just finished watching some of Feng Zhu's video demos. I learn some thing new everytime I see his stuff. About a solid hour's work.

Ol' painless_3 little pigs

Ol' Painless has friends now. The morning before the siege. The 3 together remind me of the 3 little pigs. Almost done with this one. Just got to add a few soldiers and mess around with the debris.

Still not that efficient with my techniques yet. I take too long on my decisions when it comes to light and color. I'm going to try different variations on texturing as well. Gotta keep practicing.

The Ed Boon tweet

My buddy Joe Builds boxes as well. Ed Boon (creator of the Mortal Kombat series) tweeted his video breakdown. Check it out when you get a chance. Awesome work! Congrats Joe!

MK arcade box video:3 videos total

Keep em' coming Joe!

Arcade boxes for my nephews

Here are the final boxes I made for my nephews. Christmas was awesome this year. It was great to see how excited they were to receive them. I bundled MK vs DC with the Batman box and Street Fighter 4 with Spiderman. Unfortunately I only got one shot of one of my nephews holding up his. His name ironically is "Ryu". See the little guy holding up the box. He can only throw hadokens at the moment. He's still practicing he tells me. Super awesome!

I got a time lapsed video of some of the box production and artwork. It will be up soon.

Ol' Painless with friends

I was tinkering with this sketch while I was testing out my tablet. I did a little tweak and started to add some sort of story. Don't know what that is yet. Mostly just wanted to expand the shot. Something to doodle when I'm winding down before bed. Been crazy busy lately so hopefully I can fit this in and finish it.
