With so many friends on tumblr, it seemed like a good idea. You can find my work there at airsheeps.tumblr.com. Odds are good there will be new things there that I don’t post immediately here.
That is all.
My submission for the Mega Man Boss Battle tribute show celebrating Mega Man’s 25th anniversary has been posted, so I thought it time to finally post it here. I chose Hornet Man from Mega Man 9.
What I liked about 9 was that all the Robot Masters had regular jobs from which they had been reappropriated, and I loved that this tough-looking guy was all about gardening. I latched on to the flowers and curious machismo of his design that seemed at odds, which led me to associate it with the visual cues of a matador. The watercolor look was a natural extension of that softening—I think it’s a pretty different take and I’m quite happy with how it came out.
We’ve really gotten into Super Smash Bros Brawl at the office, so much so that I wanted to make something with my two main characters. Enjoy!
A couple months ago some friends at work decided to participate in an online challenge: draw 30 monster girls, preferably one a day, and see what everyone comes up with. None of us made it all the way to the end, mostly out of time constraints, but some fun pieces came out of it all the same. Of the about a dozen I did, these are my personal favorites. Please note that there’s nudity in these, so sensitive eyes look away!
My friend Ashley asked me to submit a piece as a guest artist for an art book related to a project she was working on, that would be given away to kickstarter backers that supported it. I was more than happy to, and it’s a damn cool looking game, too!
A few months ago a project was put together of artists creating work to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter. While the show was honestly all over the board talent-wise since many of the contributors are enthusiasts but not necessarily professionals, there were some excellent pieces to be found. This was my contribution—Blair Dame from the EX series. I was quite taken with her back story of being old European money.
Still alive, and I’ve done some work! And now I finally feel like posting it, so this is the first of several impending posts.
While I was out I discovered David Petersen’s Mouse Guard and fell in love with both the world scenario and the art—I’ve personally not seen anything like it in comics (in my limited experience. I was so captivated by it, that I thought, why not indulge in giving it a go myself?
Give the books a gander, and if you’re one for tabletop role-playing games, maybe consider giving that a try too.
I have a website! It would seem I’ve apparently forgotten. Well, there hasn’t been much to update with as I’ve been quite busy doing work for others, and not so much for me. As of April I’ve moved from Los Angeles to San Francisco and have taken on a 2D Artist position for Zynga’s FrontierVille. It’s a fantastic job! But I can’t show or say much more than that. And since my personal life is now going rather swimmingly, I have little time for my own art… so I’m formally putting this site on indefinite hiatus.
There’s always something on my mind, so I think I’ll be paying Twitter the time of day again; but just as I can’t share much about my job here, nor will I there. Maybe every once in a while I’ll make some new artwork though (after all, I still want to make something with Eli & Amos!), so if I do you can find out about it there, and eventually it’ll get posted here. Anyways, happy trails to you!
As a kid, I loved the movie Tombstone; it was a love I’d adopted from one of my brothers. I’ve always been interested in Westerns since then, but have never really explored my affection for the setting. › Continue reading
