Hey everyone. I havent been on for a while and wanted to start adding some daily sketches again now that my schedule is a little less hectic. Any thoughts and crits are welcome, most of these are only just quick concepts i did cause i felt like painting though. Until I actually get good, i consider most of these studies and practice pieces. I have also included some steps in case anyone wants to see.
Any crits and comments are most welcome and appreciated.

Boom, 5 stars for you man. AWesome stuff.
Can't wait to see more !
Great start indeed I really dig the 2nd image of the critter, the colors are great. The first one could use some more definition and work on the arms I think, especially the upper arm and joint seem a bit rushed.
AWSOME! 5 shiny ones from me. Dig the painterly feel your pieces have.
Hot stuff. Subscribed.
I totally agree with you Yoit. And thank you for the critique. Yeah, I basically was only doing the first one just cause I felt like painting something, and usually when i do that, design and sense go out the window lol. I'm just like..."yeah...light swords are cool...clunk clunk. Hey, how about some fucking aliens on the ground....that kind of works." I like it better when i have a story for a character and an actual feeling to go on, rather than when I just feel like moving paint around. Thanks again for the crit Yoitsi.
Instant 5 stars man!!!!!
all I gotta say here basically is...
...If those are what you consider practice pieces, I want to see your finished quality pieces. That'll be the day all ducks on earth die
Incredible start! adding on to those 5 starts

Great!!!! some of your work is.. is... impressive! I am amazed!
Thank you very much for the compliments everyone! I really appreciate all the kind words.
To answer some of your questions yeah, I did a couple things for Imagine FX Magazine. And currently I am working on magic cards for Wizards of the Coast. Which I cant show for like another 8 months till they are released...so im kind of bummed about that.
Right now im pretty much focusing on trying to get trained though. I am self taught and that can be incredibly frustrating some times. Its great I guess for developing your own style, but I really would like to attend a school with a group of artists where we can learn and grow together and pump out bad ass shit all day.
Anyhoot, thanks for the crits and I will have more up shortly.
Cripes man, I just visited your website and i'm shocked!
Amazing work bud, purely. I noticed you live in davie? Shit man thats right up my alley.

I love the small silouette studies, that is a great exercise! Superb Stuff!
lol, yeah man, i just moved actually. I live in orlando now. But I will be coming back down later in the week so a close friend of mine Karla Ortiz, can film herself kicking me in the nuts as hard as she can. I cant say anymore on the subject...but trust me, its for a good cause.
And thanks for the compliments on the silouttes. That was actually for an art director I met this weekend at Gearbox Studios. She told me thats the way she likes to work, have like a sheet of 30 sills and then pick the one she likes and the artist cranks on it. So after I flew back I did that exercise to see if thats what she was talking about. Hopefully she likes it.
Anyhoot, heres a sketch i started today. I might take this to an concept illustration, but I dont know. Any crits are most welcome and appreciated.
Orlando huh? I've too many long time no see buds up there. Nothing better then a kick in the nuts on film, make sure you put that on youtube or something hehe. As for this last one;
Go all the way man. I digg it way to much for you to just let it sit around collecting pixel dust! One thing i'd like to mention though, is to keep exploring the characters form. I think you can come up with something a little more dynamic, expressions rule. Btw, I had a question about your rendering technique if you don't mind. Do you usually start off with a gray scale before you slap on colours?
Great concepts. Something just freshened my day up
All around awesomeness
Even the little silhouettes above the second pic are badass
wow, really nice book, love the silhouttes.
very cool dude, keep postin'
