Halo 5

"From the Wreckage"
One of my favorite games growing up was Halo: Combat Evolved. I loved playing with all my friends and family. We'd stay up all night during LAN parties playing Capture the Flag. Since Halo 5 released recently a bunch of amazing artists at 343 Industries (Sparth, Kory Hubbel, Justin Oaksford, Kyle Hefley and John Wallin Liberto to name a few) posted a ton of their production work from the game. It astounds me the amount of love and care that go into making a game of that caliber. I decided to do a rendition of the Master Chief himself in my down time. I've also taken the time to start an Art Station account, so check it out if you're on there: www.artstation.com/artist/thomaszenteno

Samurai Cats and Youtube Channel!

So I've been helping out some friends with tutorials every once in a while and thought everyone else might like to see them as well. I've started a youtube channel where I'll be sharing some of the knowledge I've gained in the last few years, as well as sharing stuff I'm still working on getting better at. Hope you guys find these demo's helpful!

Beasts of No Nation

Just watched Beasets of No Nation on Netflix and thought it was a great film. It reminds me that there is so much complexity in destabalized regions in the world.Had to get these drawings out as a result. Clearly influenced by the styles of Violaine Briat, Julien Rossire and Alexandre Diboine. Thanks for taking a look!

For more frequent updates than this old blog check out my Tumblr and Instagram.

Incredibles Colorscript Studies

I had a blast doing these studies from the opening scene of the Incredibles. I love Brad Bird as a director and went on a binge of Mission Impossible films after watching Mission Impossible 5. finished it off with the Incredibles because there are so many similarities in tone. What strikes me about all the shots in The Incredibles is how remarkably clear their shots are. All the frames are boiled down to their essence and Brad's 2D sensibilities really show through.  If you haven't seen some of the story moments they cut go watch this.
