The thumbnail page in the top image shows how I usually begin my concept pieces. I do this to get a feel for how the overall piece is going to look. I add a splash of color to them sometimes to get an idea of how the pallet for the piece might look as well.
Ever since I was little I was into a variety of different subjects such as meteorology, history, paleontology, entomology and the mystery behind dreams, and I would come up with drawings based on what I was interested in at the time. I still have an interest in these subjects as well as books on them and anatomy that I use as reference in my work. I started off my career as a freelance artist for Engyma Arts, and Brokendoll Studios before attaining a job as a concept/modeler at Barking Lizards. While I worked at Barking Lizards I learned the process of concepting out ideas and making them work in game as well as making models from other artist’s concepts. I learned how to work under lead artists as well as be a lead artist myself and I enjoyed the time I spent there and the friends I made. Now, I am freelancing and working on my portfolio and trying to improve myself as an artist. If you have any comments or critiques please feel free to make them.
