Fighting for freedom

Another post of some work from this previous year. I was pleased with the final of this image.. This image was based on the idea of the American resistance fighting with generations of US armed forces by their side. Another Homefront piece of course.

Some things work, some things don't.

After some time of drawing things in and out of this piece.. I have about no idea where this piece is going or even where I want it to go. I hate it when a piece hits a wall.. and I can't seem to find the exit.

Personal update, the mermaid.

Once in awhile, I end up sitting down and sketching things that my wife just loves. She is a huge mermaid nut and has been bugging me about painting a mermaid for her for years... I've done tons of thumbnails and sketches of mermaids in the past years but nothing really seemed to sit right. I had trouble thinking of one that didn't look like a disney cartoon. I think Ariel is just too ingrained in all our brains. I would say this is about 35% complete. I'm mostly trying to figure out colors and composition right now. Trying some new colors.. some added detail. I want the environment to be something interesting, but am having alot of trouble thinking of anything. A mermaid just hangs out in the ocean right? I really didn't want just a sea of ocean behind her.. so if anyone has any ideas, post them to comments! All ideas would be awesome!

I have to shoot reference for the hands.. Anything past blurry quick sketch hands I am awful at ;)

Homefront Officers

Alot of images and work is coming out for Homefront recently, a project I was recently involved with for about 4 years. So in the next few months I will be able to update shit blog with alot of work that was done on it.

This first mock was done for North Korean officers.. made to be a little more substantial than the average foot soldier. They wanted a real attention to detail when it came to pack variations and the way they carried them. There also was a need for a base vest, that would carry over to all the soldiers, so we wouldn't bog the modelers down into making 20 different vests.
