Here are some idea sketches for my next project, THE POULTRYGHEIST. 

Here are some idea sketches for our main antagonist, the poultrygheist himself. 
... the one at the bottom kind of looks like the hamburglar. Just sayin'.

Leave your ideas as comments! I want to know what you want to see in a poultry-gheist... or even the other characters: a hero, a love-interest, a sidekick... etc. So comment away.
This was an assignment for a class; the artist I chose to imitate is Cory Loftis. He is a genius! Check him out here:  <>

For those of you who aren't yet familiar with Helio Gracie:

Helio is one of my heroes! He was always pretty small and he had health issues yet he became a world-renowned fighter. He has a cool story, check out his documentary on youtube:

Ryan Woodward's class is mainly showing me that I don't really know a thing about art. as Epictetus says, "A man cannot learn what he thinks he already knows" ...and boy do I have a lot to learn!

Anyway, here is an assignment from Ryan's class. We were told to make a retro-future necromancer. a.k.a. D&D meets The Jetsons.

The top row is silhouettes, the row just beneath it I chose what silhouette I liked best and designed it further by whiting things out, and then you see the final product!

....And yet another co-worker caricature. I showed it to my friend Dennis and he said it looks like he's pooping his pants and I totally agree... What a happy mistake... (: 

.... he's penny-golfing. And some of you reading this post know why.

Old Assignment!

Capn' Bill Wheedles, the Redesign. I used multiple approaches.

technical pen, photoshop color.

technical pen-lines colored, all coloring in photoshop.
 brush-tip pen, colored in photoshop. 

 pencil shading, colored in photoshop. 
... for your referencing convenience. This is the first pass.

Where Can I Turn for Peace?

I submitted this piece to BYU's Mayhew show today! What do you think would make it better? (when I get it back there are a few things I'd like to change already, any input is wonderful)
