NEW TOPIC: DRAW FROM LIFE.

With all the hullabaloo of summer I thought we could keep things open and just draw something from life.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Monster!

Did this one in Photoshop on Livestream tonight (1.5hrs). Seems my computer can't handle HD streaming, so it's a smaller resolution if you want to watch. I'll probably compress it down and re-post it on Youtube later.

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Hey Game Art Buddies, I'm so excited to share this "Monster" of a project I am doing with you. I just launched a kickstarter to raise funds for a web series that I wrote and directed. It's the biggest game art undertaking I've ever done. Please check out the link and video and show a little support if you can.  I'd super appreciate it if you could help spread the word for me to anyone you know that is into Minecraft.

I'd love to know what you think, in the comments. =D

Don't ask me where I came up with this. I just started drawing Bigfoot and all of a sudden pictured him wishing he could wear those lovely shoes that he could never hope to fit into.
