Tucson Comic Con 2013 TARDIS Exclusive

One day in early November, 2013, a mysterious blue box appeared in the desert just outside of Tucson, Arizona. It had the look of an old-fashioned British police box, and out of it, stepped a man… or at least, I think he was a man. He talked in a very strange way, but seemed to guess that something was going on. Everyone else had scoffed when we said something was… odd about the cacti in the area, but he just smiled and said, “Allons-y!”

I’m very pleased to announce this! I was approached by the AZ TARDIS Southern Chapter to do a piece of artwork for a Tucson Comic Con 2013 exclusive. This is a limited edition 11″ x 17″ print, and only 51 copies, signed and hand-numbered by myself, will ever be sold. They are $20 each, and 50% of each sale goes directly to the charities the AZ TARDIS group works with, benefiting children’s diabetes research and lymphoma cancer research.

This print will be available both at the Red Nebula Studios table and at the AZ TARDIS table. We hope to see you there!

Mass Effect: Ghost on Omega

Mass Effect: Ghost on Omega

Industrial cityscape backgrounds are kinda scary. Kinda fun… but scary.

The character is Ghost, a turian belonging to DasTierLockjaw, and she’s hanging out somewhere in that gritty neon hell known as Omega. I have a bit of a soft spot for the place, I’ll admit, primarily because it’s where you pick up two of the coolest characters in ME2. 😀

This was meant to be a speedpainting, but wasn’t quite as speedy as I would’ve liked. About 8 hours in total.

Firefly: Kaylee and Serenity

I had more fun working on this than any one artist should be allowed in a lifetime. I got to draw Serenity (squee!) and Kaylee (squeee!), try out some new techniques, and learn just what an interesting challenge it is trying to portray an actual person using lineart. A couple of textures came from cgtextures.com (one of the top 20 websites on the Internet, in my opinion), and the excellent planet tutorial I made use of belongs to Dinyctis on deviantArt and can be found here.

Chewbacca Goes Up

Chewbacca Goes Up

This was one of my two entries for the badge art competition for Phoenix Comicon 2012. I went outside of a lot of comfort zones here, using a lot of vivid colors, stylization, and simplification to make what I feel is quite a successful design overall. I didn’t win the badge art competition, but growing as an artist is never a loss!

I did this one because two of the guests at the 2012 show were Peter Mayhew (who played Chewbacca in “Star Wars”), and Ed Asner (who voiced Carl in Pixar’s “Up”). By combining the two, I came up with this rather silly image. 🙂
