Character concept for a personal project, really focusing on the armor details and designs. This started as a sketch in my sketchbook and developed into a demo for my Gnomon advanced character design class, and now its evolved into this.
Hi all,

Happy Holidays to everyone, It's been awhile, I've been so busy with family and work and the holidays. On the career front, me and the talented crew of BIG MACHINE won an Emmy award  for a TV show I worked on for NAT-GEO'S BIG CAT can check it here

Future Cats Emmy award

I haven't posted much, so today is the day.
In the past year I had the privilege to do some illustrations for H.G. Well's "War of the Worlds" I had a lot of freedom in the creations of these illustrations and truly enjoyed giving my own take on the visuals for the story. You can check a few out right here in my gallery.

What's this?:sherlock: revision 

A llama?:petllama: 

It is! It is!:excited: 

But why did I get one, you may ask yourself? :baffled: 

Well, I could be all mysterious and say "Muahahaha! You wish you knew, mortal!" The Seriously Evil Laugh 

But...truth be told, I just wanted to make you smile. Sheepish 

Did it work? Shy

Congratulations on doing the illustrations for HG Wells War of the Worlds. Looks like it would be a great edition of a great classic.

Hello, I was wondering if you're accepting character concept art commissions? If you are, what are your prices?

hello are you open for request?

I have some cool Request ideas.

an sexy woman or other normal woman/mann (other?)  slays an pack of werewolves or lizardman

she/he stand on the top of the dead monster mountain with an winning position or sit on some dead monster body.…

if you dont like to draw werewolves ?

Dinosaurman or lizardman would be awsome too.

lizardman concept here…

werewolf concept here…

If you dont like it im would be really happy to see this Werewolf in some cool position…

or in other color…

if you dont like werewolves , the lizardman from heavy metal 2000 would be awsome too ^^…

It would be so nice when you find time & interest on one of this Request .
Im not an good Artist but have some nice ideas ,it would be so fantastic when an wonderful Artist like you can do it.

Have an wonderful nice day
