Illustrations and call outs for the recent Wild West themed Artstation Challenge. 3D was used to build up the environments and then I painted over the block out in photoshop.
5 Bells – A prohibition distillery hidden in an old mission church.
End of the Line – An old, broken, and flooded train yard. The natives attempt to keep the spirits confined to the area.

This was my entry for the Beneath the Waves Prop challenge over on Artstation. I tried to create props that would reflect a small group of scientists studying minerals and elements occurring on and near the hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the ocean.
Atlus Holo-Station. A multi-use table meant for meetings and meals, the Holo-Station has top of the line holographic technology to easily visualize any data.
Engineer Veligati’s Homemade Scanner. When Atlus’ top of the line tech can’t seem to figure out strange and potentially dangerous minerals escaping from the thermal vents, its time to go back to basics.
Atlus Deep Sea Diving Suit. The layering process is perfect for maintaining a normal body temp.
Atlus Hydro Thermal Electric Generator. Atlus has improved upon the common hydro thermal generator to allow the underwater science base to be completely powered by the thermal vents on the ocean floor.
Atlus Handi-Fin. Made specifically for Dr. Slontz, this diving apparatus allows handicapped divers to maneuver more easily in the water. By sensing the subject’s nervous system signals the subject can take control of the Handi-Fin’s swimmerets to get around.
Just finished up a CGMA creature design class with Bobby Rebholdz. I felt that I needed some work on creatures and this class really kicked my ass. Definitely felt like I came out the other end a lot better though.
The people of Root City zip around between major and the satellite markets on their personal ‘jetskiesque’ water crafts. No two vehicles are ever the same. It all depends on what kind of parts you can scrounge up.
I wanted to give Delling an interesting alternative weapon. His lantern is the source of all of his magical power. Went through a lot of iterations for Delling’s lantern weapon. Enjoy a few of them.
For anyone following my personal project, Life on Water, I’ve created a map of the world where all the story takes place. The shape of the world is borrowed heavily from Norse mythology creation stories.
First painting of 2016. It’s also my most complicated painting to date. I used 3D to help plan out the image after coming up with some basic building shapes.
Potential vehicles for the Life on Water series.
A DOTA 2 courier concept. The cloth is tied while basic, but once upgraded the ropes come off and the courier can fly.
I’m currently taking another class at CGMasterAcademy. This time I’m taking Environment Design for Entertainment with James Paick. Here’s some of the work that I’ve done over the first couple weeks. Expect more of these updates as the class continues.
