I did a sketch after work today of an Elk Ranger.
Going to try to do a little series of these guys, maybe one huge brawny one, and a mage one, something like that.
Anyway, here is the dude so far, going to try to paint these guys up sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Hello everyone, Here is a painting I did during our Friday plein air session. It was overcast which I have never painted before, which was a lot of fun. Took it into photoshop to see where I want to take it next traditionally. Hopefully I can make it come close to this lol. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I will have some fun character stuff up soon! Hopefully with process shots and video. Cheers

Hello Everyone! This Friday the dungeon team and I set out for some more plein air painting. This is how cool my work is, I got to go to the beach, relax with a bunch of friends while we paint. It's a lot of fun, and I feel my oils getting better I think. Anyway, I feel like I'm learning a lot about color and light from doing these paintings, and recommend going out and doing some painting from life even if you feel like you suck at it. Cause I do, and I'm still having fun! Cheers till next time. Cole

Hello! The dungeon team have been doing some lunch painting/sketching sessions every week. Here is a painting I started at lunch time and finished with digital. I have been learning a great deal from going out and painting from life, I highly recommend it if you can afford the equipment lol. Cause it can be quite expensive. Till next time!

Hello Everyone, This week I am working on a little side project to try to improve my 3d skills along with my 2d. Me and a friend are going to be doing a series of concepts and turnarounds into full 3d textured models over the next....probably forever lol. Yesterday we went to Barnes and Noble to get some ideas going. I am thinking of making a guy who controls ravens and is used as a spy for the empire he is a part of. Or maybe each crow does a different thing. Not sure yet. But basically we did some studies yesterday and soon will be doing some character illustrations. Here is what I was thinking for the look of the crows. I saw one kind of bird that was half grey and half blue, really beautiful, then just took the body of a crow to that same color scheme. So did some quick pen sketches of the general look of them, and a fast sketch of maybe what the guy would look like. Will do a couple different thumbs and roughs and see where it goes. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
