Fates Forever

Last year I joined a startup headed up by Jason Citron (founder of OpenFeint) to begin work on a new title for IOS. I had a very rewarding 4 year run with id software, but I had always been fascinated by the indie game industry and the potential with this new opportunity was something I couldn't pass up.

This image represents the first glimpse of the characters/world I've been designing and there will be much more to share as we near our launch later this year.

Please feel free to visit our game's site to see a current screenshot from the game and sign-up to receive word when we launch.

Our game's site can be found here:

In my process images you'll find the initial value study and the two images I was looking to extract from this single piece. It was an interesting puzzle to create one image that could function as three depending on what our marketing needs were (logo designed by Michael Heald).

Hope you enjoy and please stay tuned for more updates from 'Fates Forever'

night faerie

In the spirit of Halloween: here's a color sketch from tonight. I came across all sorts of beautiful work on the web today ... made me want to paint a nocturne. Thanks for all the inspiration, art peeps.

Morphic Tide

I created this MTG card art some months back that was just released. It was fun to contribute one of these special edition over-sized cards with the wide aspect ratio. More room to play with compositiona, eye flow and introduce more complexity than card art typically allows.

ImagineFX workshop

I had the pleasure of contributing a workshop to the latest edition of ImagineFX. The current issue description can be found here.

Here's the piece I created specifically for the workshop themed "Fantasy with a Twist" where I hybridized a mermaid and a medusa navigating through a field of naval mines.

Here's a preview of the workshop:

Creating the workshop was a truly rewarding experience. The art brief was open ended and their staff was attentive and helpful with any questions I had in developing my article.

I also included a recording of my sketch and color techniques on the DVD. Check it out, if you get a chance.
