DC Universe Online: Cyborg

Did this apocolyptic redesign of the DC character "Cyborg" for Blur's intro cinematic for DC Universe online a while back. He got all of a second of screen-time before getting taken out like a chump, but he was still fun to draw!

This is a piece I did for Blur as a show of interest for the forth-coming "Bone" feature film. We didn't end up animating the movie, but I still got to do this piece (Which in no way reflects the look of the movie. well, except that the bone characters will probably be in it, and I would be shocked if there were no rat-people either...).

Incidentally, Jeff Smith, the creator of "Bone", is an alumni of the Columbus College of Art and Design, where I went to school...

Took Carlo Arellano's Advanced Entertainment Design course at he Concept Design Academy last winter/spring. It was a great class and I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of experience level (although it IS an "advanced" course, so I guess not ANYONE exactly...). It did a lot to get me back into actually drawing stuff out a little more and focusing on design rather than a fancy painting. Anyway, here's some of my homework. We had a fun time redesigning stuff from "Avatar," which always seemed like a mixed bag to me in terms of design...i.e. those blue cat people are a little to close to being furries for my taste!

Old orc sketch

a quick sketch that I did YEARS AGO, back before Blur did the intro for the warhammer dawn of war PC game. I was really excited about the project, but turns out they didn't need any concept work from us... oh well.

Why Creationism is cool...

here's a rough sketch that I'll continue in later posts...generic as hell, I know, but I need to let my mind turn to jello sometimes and just play with brushes (painter 9's flat oil brush in this case)...

Now, I won't say that creationism is the most scientifically sound theory to explain the history of life on earth, but any belief system that involves dinosaurs and bikini cave ladies occupying the same slice of space and time deserves a second look...

more later!
