2 months later

So, its been a while since I've updated. To be honest the reason is laziness. For a while my focus and study went downhill.

My drawings really disappointed me for a while too. Now I feel like I'm getting back on track, I feeling like a serious improvement is taking place. Also I'm getting more confident with my work, so i will be updating with a lot of school work, added on to a lot of personal work. Aw yee

Back to THAT'S ANIMATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

from sketches to Name Slate






Been doing a lot of sketching lately. A lot of the time in different styles to get out of my comfort zone. Earlier today i drew a character I made when i was younger, and the way i drew it blew my mind, considering it was so different from the way i usually draw. Later on in the night, I'm at Jack Astors with a couple of my buddies, thinking of some old characters I had from when i was little. Decided to draw one on the paper table cloth with crayons..In that same style I mentioned earlier ... I LOVED IT!! After that the concept just snowballed and now a couple of them are gonna be the stars of my Name Slate for my digital tools class. I think theres a lot of potential here.

comments are appreciated! :D

Good direction?


To me this painting is done, kinda don't know what else to do with it. It is only a test, and forced me to learn a lot.

Feedback is appreciated, please tell me if I'm going in the right direction with this piece.

Thank you

Leo colour testing




Been working on a simpler version of the character model so its easier to animate later. to I decided to try to do a cell shaded colour test. Although its still not finished, it was a good opportunity to log my progress. Feedback is definitely appreciated on this one.

Character refined


This is a more refined concept of my character,

Syntherian General - Ossian Renaldus,

One of twenty generals under Lord Aleron's command.

upcoming work

I've been trying to work on concepts for "Divine Rebirth" but I've also been working. Having a job at a moving company is very time consuming. Any-who, new stuff is in the works, from more refined versions of the main characters, to some speed/matte paintings of environments in their world.

You guys can expect a couple drawings tonight at the soonest.

Leo revamped


So I decided to change a couple things I didn't like about Leonardo Belmonte's costume and weapon. This will probably not be the final concept, but I liked what came out of it, enjoy.

Update - Divine Rebirth


More character concept sketches for my new comic "Divine Rebirth". A breif summary is included with this update.

A regular student named Leonardo Belmonte, is just about to graduate from high school. He is then faced with traumatically losing his closest friend (Evelyn Arkwright) and also his life to a mysterious figure while walking home from school one day. Leo is severely hurt and loses consciousness in the attack.

When he awakes, he finds himself taken into a world behind our seemingly ordinary one and is forced to learn how to live in it, with newly found abilities given to him by an ethereal lord, all while trying to find his beloved friend Eve.

Here are some of the characters in the comic

These are not final designs, but they are going in the right direction :) enjoy

White Phantom costume design revised



This was done one almost a month ago. I needed a more updated look on the White Phantom's costume so I looked at some reference pictures. Looking over ancient roman armor and old painting of St. Micheal I found what I was looking for then did some quick concept sketches. Here's the final product of that thought process, hope you enjoy.
