Got Ether?

7/18/2014

It's done! When life gets your MP down, grab a bottle of Ether (aka Potion in Japan) and liven things up!

See you guys at Bottleneck Gallery "8-bit and Beyond" video game show on Aug. 8!

Description
Figure pretty much done. Now some tweeking needs to be done with special affects, text, and maybe background.

7/14/2014

Trying a few things. Almost there. I had to elongate her shorts and shorten her hair to capture some of the AC Tifa character design.

Need to touch up on the bottle, maybe add a background and I say she's done.


7/13/2014

Getting there. Flushed out the hair, skirt, arms... ah hell, the entire thing. Another day is all I need.


7/12/2014

Flushing out the figure.


7/11/2014

Well, Tifa is shaping up. Blocked most the figure that I needed, tomorrow I'll further render Tifa and start thinking about the background.

I wouldn't promote this approach of design, as an illustrator you should have much of your thoughts and plan worked out in your thumbnail. I just needed to get started on this because quite frankly I wasn't sure how to work out this design.

I plan to give here an aura like how characters have their MPs replenish as well as a blue milk mustache. 

Anyways, here's the work in progress.

Sorry guys for the long delay. My part-time job has been taking a lot of my time, but final got around starting a new project for Bottleneck Gallery. August 8th will be their new show with video games as the theme.

I've decided to do Final Fantasy VII  with a parody of "Got Milk?" poster.

Got the thumbnail done and ready to start rendering.

Gears of War


6/15/14

Well, it's done! Let me say that if your name is Carmine or Kenny, I'd live a very fast n furious life.


6/15/14

What do you get doing Gears of War in South Park style? Gears Park. Kenny and Carmine... two unlucky souls.

This is an ongoing project. Some background and other tweeking and this project is done!

Booth Practice Run

6/13/14

Wanted to setup my booth to see how the arrangements should be. The table is a lot smaller what they'll have at the con, but a few things I've notice that came to mind.

- My portfolios should be open
- Where's my signup clip board for newletters?
- What does back sign look like when I'm manning it?

Sounds trivial, but it's all about how you market yourself.

Zero Suit Samus

6/12/2014

Final done. Added some textures, made Samus blue overall, and added some half-tones as a design element.


6/9/2014

Playing around with graphic/text elements.


6/8/2014
 Meh... still tweeking.


6/8/2014

Figure is pretty much done. Now all I have to is play with the composition and this project is done!


6/7/2014

Coming along. Should be done with the figure by tomorrow.





6/6/2014

Postponing the "Avengers" project to get more images ready for Philly Comic Con. I've always wanted to do an image with Piet Mondrian's style incorporated into it. His paintings influenced many fashion and design; particularly the 1960's.

Below is a quick composition.

Super Smash Avengers

5/18/2014

Woah! It's been awhile guys. Been very busy with my part-time job in prep for Wizard World Philly. Finally sat down and started a thumbnail of my next illustration; parody of Super Smash Bros and Avengers!

Here's what I'm thinking. Well, got less than a month before the convention so it's time to haul ass and do some artwork.
