Variants

I somehow managed to paint Kim Kardashian as an urban punk completely by accident. 😐

(I swear, I didn’t use her as reference. I reckon it’s because her features are so generic that if you draw “generically attractive” with that skin tone it just kinda looks like her.)

Here are a few variants of her costume that I considered before settling on what you see above.

An interesting piece on how the arc was the unifying visual element in the Mass Effect series.

Did this one a while back, thought I’d share. Fairly quick, and what’s up with that tiny hand?

Courtesy of my lovely girlfriend. She’s a much better graphic designer than me (compare this to my last attempt, below).

Logo design is a surprisingly tricky art. Making something that is attractive and iconic but instantly readable. My instincts run to throwing a bunch of detail in there, cluttering it up. But I’ve learned the hard way, that looks pretty shit at smaller resolutions.

There’s a reason Nike uses that swoosh and Apple their, well, apple.

Doodle of a vampire chick. Needs more colour, it’s reading pretty dull at the moment. And better separation between fore- and background values. But ah well, this is how we learn.

Original Star Wars Concept Art

Star Wars concept art by Ralph McQuarrie

My word, these Star Wars concept pieces by Ralph McQuarrie are just so utterly fantastic.

Reminds me why I’m doing what I’m doing, what I’m sacrificing so much for. I just love these fantasy worlds so much, I couldn’t be satisfied with anything other than spending my life creating them. It is at the very heart of me.
