Black Night redesign

Had a little time this weekend to work on my BK re-imagining. He's from the ancient past, and he's ditched his old suit of armor for modern powered body armor. Still wanna add color, refine the armor more, and redesign the ebony blade.

Black Knight

Another lunchtime sketch. Black Knight is returning to the Avengers this month after not making many appearances since the mid 90's. When I was a kid, I thought he was pretty cool. Nowadays, he looks kind of goofy. Not sure if this will end up being classic BK, or a redesign. He could be super cool! Go toe-to-toe with Blade in a swordfight or something. Maybe take on a leadership role in the team. He'd have that Captain America - A Man Out Of Time vibe thing going on.

Practice sketch!

Started off as a warm-up sketch. Took it home and rendered it more.

About 3 hours total.

Reaper of Souls

Did this commission for Blizzard last year of Malthael, Angel of Death. Played the expansion too. Best act in the game IMHO. Love me some Crusader!

New Olaf splash art for League of Legends!

Finished this bad boy earlier this year. Riot did some touch up to bring it closer to their style. I like how it turned out!

The Red Scourge of the Frozen North!

...or something like that.

What initially started off as a knight, eventually turned into sort of companion piece for the Conan art I did early last year. Next up? The Queen of the Black Coast, Belit!

Red Scourge appears in:

Secret Ponchos at PAX EAST!

This is it! Playable at PAX East this weekend! My friends have been working hard on this game for the last few years, and I'm very lucky and proud to have been able to contribute some art for it. Everything Yousuf says in the article is true. When we were housemates long ago, we used to devour games like Street Fighter, Tekken, Soul Calibur, Warcraft and Starcraft. That addiction to competitive skill-based play has stuck with all of us and we're hoping to have captured some of that magic in Ponchos.

If you're heading to PAX next week, be sure to drop by the booth and play the game. :)

MMA King

My Fantasy MMA league champion icon. I painted this when I won the last season with 5/8 correct picks. Nothing gets the point across more than an illustrated bird.

Grave Mercy

Last year I did a rough cover illustration for Robin Lafevers' book Grave Mercy. It didn't make the cover, but I had fun doing it. The book is pretty good too. It's about assassins raised in a sketchy convent. Lots of political intrigue and sneaking about. The covergirl here is Ismae. I hear the second book, Dark Triumph is coming out soon, starring another assassin named Sybella.

Infected by Art

Hi everyone! I entered another contest. This time I have multiple entries that I'm asking you all to vote for. Help a fella out @:
Here are the pieces I entered. They're all old. I'm surprised that of all the art I've made there are so few I still like and I couldn't help but make tweaks to most of them. Let me know if I made em better or worse if you have the time or inclination. Tell your friends to vote and Happy Holidays!

So cool to finally be in this book. :)

Stolen Art

You gotta love how companies just decide to steal art and not bother letting the artist know they just worked for free.

How about some love OVIP mobile (inc.) ?

Early D3 Barbarian models

Found these while transferring old data to my new comp. These are the first iterations of the male and female Barbs. The male went through several iterations before they settled on the current in-game appearance. The last pic is the first pass on the female Barb's default state before they changed her face. I made her a biiiiiit too buff also, so on the 2nd pass I toned that down a bit. These pics are from 2006.

Curse of the Everliving

A few months ago I got to do a bit of work for Games Workshop on a Warhammer Fantasy audiobook about Gotrek & Felix! I hope I get to do more. I could happily paint Space Marines and Chaos Knights all day. I think I still get too saturated though. Need to dial that back.
