My concept work for Giant Realms

I totally forgot all this stuff yesterday that I wanted to show all of you- The game that I spent the last half a year working on finally came out for the android and all the smarty phones, and it's kicking ass all over the place.  It's called Giant Realms ( What I mainly did was the particle effects, basically stuff like the volcano smoke and lava explosions, and when you tap on a coin, the coin burst that happens, but I was able to do the concept designs for one of the giants: THE DESERT GIANT.  Now that the game is out, I can finally show off the sketches I did when designing him.

This week is a light one, because I have a lot of pots on the stove but nothing is really bubbling yet.  However, to tide you all over for a week, I have my in-progress Popapocolypse page #5, and my sci-fi and fantasy illustration homework, which is also a WIP.

Popapocolypse Preview and ECCC commisions

ECCC got me all revved up to make some more comics: and my current one, Popapocolypse, is what I'm currently working on.  What we gots here is the first few pages of the comic, set to premier in the next edition of Figments, and then on the Popapocolypse website debuting this summer.  Popapocolypse is my ultimate creation, with elements from all my previous comics, and it's a love letter to my childhood, my country and it's culture, and our comic books.  I'll be reveling the story slowly to you as it's happening, because I don't want to give too much away, but It's something that I'm really proud of, and taking my time with (while I also work and go to school, and do my internship).  I aim for a page a week until summer, when I can ramp up the production a little bit.  Here's the first few pages in the stages of production that they're in currently.

What we have here is the floating continent of Australia, the only surviving government after WW3, or the Creation War as some like to call it.  Australia survived by raising part of it's continent above the clouds, where they've established a "big brother" type society.  It's been a hundred years.  The group you see here are rebels, raging against the machine, and led by the enigmatic leader known as No. 9.  Currently things look kind of bad, as they're about to walk the plank.
The judges, wearing gas masks to protect their fragile wussy lungs from the harsh open air have judged the rebels as being guilty, and exiled them from the floating country by forcing them to walk the plank.

A better look at the floating country of Australia
No. 9 and his rebels fall towards what's left of the earth, a hundred years after the creation bomb exploded, causing the popapocolypse (I can't wait to show you what that means, and what this world looks like) but first they must pass through the acid clouds that cover this dangerous world.  The next page is the revel of some of the world. 

Alright, I'm gonna go back to work on this, because I'm just too damn excited about it.

Oh, also, here's some commissions I did at the ECCC 

I'm not going to post the Gambit/Rouge one, because I hate it.

Emerald City Comic Con Wrap-up Part 1

My first time in Seattle: very awesome.  I don't want to brag about all my artwork and commissions just yet, so I'll just start this off with some sight seeing that I did.  I didn't see the space needle, the fish tossing, or the sci-fi museum.  More importantly, I didn't see Phoenix Jones!  Here's some cosplayers that I did see however, enjoy!

The Sentinel!  What you don't see here is a removed panel on the other side of his head, with a little wolverine toy busting out amongst random springs and bolts.

Can never go wrong with an old school Captain America

Mystery Science Theatre anyone? I wanted to sit next to this guy in a movie.

Boba Demon Samurai?

The only Xorn costume that I've ever seen.  The guy could use a lesson in poses though.

Usually I hate Hawkman, but this guy was rocking it.

The lady Juggernaut, which was just....weird.

The name's Doom, baby!

You should know who this is, and if you don't, climb out of that cave you're living in please.
HAHA. Joust. How silly.

Star Lord

The most awesome family that ever lived

Some transformer guy

Everyone loves them some Logan

And finally, the best of them all: Galactus!  He ever had a little silver surfer on a piece of clear plastic stuck to his should, so it'd look like he was flying around him.  FTW!
