Thought it'd be nice to get posting regularly with a sketchbook on C.A.
Abit about myself
I work as a concept artist in the games industry, in a studio here in Brisbane, Australia. My original background is in animation/digital-compositing. I've been in the industry for roughly 6 years now- 3 years as a concept artist in the games industry though.
Anyway that'll do for now... here are some pics. Will try to post images regularly
First piece was done bout a month ago... topic was "spiderman..." (for the work blogs) Tried to come up with something unique and diff... more monster and freak instead of you're comic book stuff.
The last 2 pieces were entered into Character's of the week concepts;p Chow's 72 Apocalyptic Scavenger and Chow 73 Soul Collector.
Medium for x 3 post: Photoshop CS2.
Will post up some sketches next... just gotta get round to scanning them though
