Trying Hand in Character Design

This week started off well. First I downloaded and watched very useful tutorials by Jason Chan and Andrew Jones, second I made first attempt drawing people in sort of comical way since high school. So here's the example of my line work and character design as commissioned by 360style podcast community. (lettering and logo by Avid x3ro)

Edit: I felt I really had to learn human anatomy before making next figure drawings, so I purchased 9 great anatomy books, reviews are coming.

Custom Faceplate Skin Design for Halo 3 Clan

Last week I've been commissioned to created custom image for Halo clan 8-Bit Brigade. Artwork will be used for making Xbox 360 faceplate skins at and clan gear. Hi-rez image is jag free. The left side features Valhalla like terrain with crushed spaceship similar to Pelican, and the right side resembles Halo 3 Legendary Edition box art with clan logo as focal point. Mockup:

If you'd like custom art for your clan, send me a note. The only thing I can't do is use copyrighted ideas, it has to be twisted or totally original. Price for a skin size image (3700x1356) - $96

This is what the skin looks like applied to console:

Digitally Painted Landscape with Traditional Look

Today I digitally painted the landscape for my exclusive art distributor in Florida who wanted particular colors and looks. The reason I'm proud of this is because it looks like I made a pretty easy transition from traditional oil on canvas art to digital format after a few basic tutorials, and I'd like to say - I enjoyed it! (thanks to Corel Painter X and new RealBristle brushes)

Faceplate Art Recapitulation - Summer 2007

Since the release of my Xbox 360 painting tutorial video I was introduced to Microsoft, met new friends and was commissioned to paint at total of 10 new faceplates. The last 2 works are shown here. The pink Master Chief hugging the teddy bear doesn't mean I felt a little fruity at the time:) It was commissioned by a cool girl gamer 'bs angel' who were kind enough to write numerous reviews about my service, describing in steps the creation of her cute Halo 3 faceplate (above) and also her friends' Spartan sniper one (below) from Both faceplates were featured on HBO (, you can read her detailed articles with links:
