The Magician

A 4 hour pose. The model was really great and Bob Kato set up a great lighting scenario: Warm orange light from the bottom right and cool blue light from the top right. This inversion of warm shadows and cool light made me really concentrate on simplifying the head. Starting with darker tones it's much easier to build up the light and control the edges all the surfaces.

In retrospect the lighting and process is analogous to drawing on black canson with two colored pencils, similar to some of the old trans renderings Art Center Trans students used to do in the 60s. It's still done today but I saw a lot of truly great understanding of this at Art Centers Car Classic show about a month back.

And the clouds part...

An environment painting I did a little while ago before school picked up. focusing on composition edges and feeling. Still a long way to go but I'll try and keep learning.

My Nightmares

These two guys have been floating around in my head for a while now and I finally got around to getting them out some time over the summer.

Psychonauts Tribute

For my Arch 2 final we were assigned to take an existing IP and design new levels based on the interiors in the game. I chose to do Psychonauts, one of my favorite games. I thought it would be cool to have Raz going through a new set of minds on a mission to save the Grand head of the Psychonauts, Zanotto. The minds are a crazed barber, an aerospace engineer and the narcissistic villain behind it all, each with its own set of challenges and enemies.

Imaginary Friends

Imaginary friends normally subsist on creativity and imagination, but with more and more kids turning to TV and games, the imaginary friends start to starve and well... they turn into monstrous versions of themselves and eat other imaginary friends, consuming their dream matter.

Siddhartha Paintings

An ongoing project. More to come soon.

Coraline Playhouse

This quick 2 week project was a set around design a playhouse for kids inspired by the movie Coraline. I carried in a lot of the creepy themes while still trying to make it look like a fun place to play in. I'll be coming back to this one because there a re a few changes I still need to make.

Alien Dog Park

Alien Dogs, I like them!

Resistance Project

The following is a class assignment from Architecture 2.

This project is a proposal to have a sequel to Resistance 3 in which the storyline branches off and follows three survivors leaving New York as Malikov and Capelli enter it. The assignment was to internalize the form language of an IP of our choice and design new areas for gameplay.
