Someday dreams come true.

Wes - Pokemon Colosseum
Just finished playing Pokemon Colosseum. Good game! Figured I’d do a quick character piece for fun.

Super Mario 3 HD - World 2

To go along with my World 1 piece! I haven’t been working on this straight, but I decided it was time to finish er’ up. I have new projects to move on to, and I’ve been playing a lot of old games.

At some point I plan to continue this series and hopefully do at least the other 6 worlds. I have a lot of very fond memories of Mario 3, probably the first truly amazing game I ever played. Years ago, when I was 5, or 6 and was playing this game I don’t think I ever would have dreamed that I’d be making video games for a living. I like to think that this game really did have a big impact on my young life in terms of getting me interested in the medium that would become my passion.

Here we go!

A new Mario 3 environment painting is on it’s way for the next world (2). If you haven’t seen it, here’s my previous one: Mario World 1

A quick study based on one of Charles Hu Gnomon videos. Fun stuff! Gotta keep practicing!

These are rough, but hopefully someone finds them useful.

A sort of WoW-styled paladin. Character designs are fun and I don’t really paint enough women, so hopefully some more in the future (and hopefully they’ll begin to look good).

I was painting a Dungeons and Dragons character that I was going to play.. and then decided to change the race and class thus making this useless in that respect. Well, here it is!

Done for a little sketch group thing. To make a small.. planet that could potentially support life ( Kind of like King Kai’s planet in DBZ) and since I love DBZ I figured I’d just make Namek in that style since it’d be fun. Then I began to daydream of it as a video game and added the fake hud.

Some concepts I did tonight for a painting I plan to do. Demonic swamp creatures!

Alien Frost Giant  Sketch
A sort of companion piece to the environment painting I did the other day. This large creature has internal heat sacks that warm up it’s body. Over time they continue to grow out of the skin and eventually pop. A new one grows shortly after but causes the creature extreme pain.

Tucked below is a human explorer for scale!

Abandoned North -
An environment piece I started the other night. I was gonna do some ff7 reimagining of environments and started off interpreting the great glacier.. but it wasn’t working out. It eventually turned out to be an imagined piece based on nothing particular. As I was painting it the story kinda came as I went (not how I usually do things). It’s hard to see but there’s a father and son moving through the snow to what looks like a crashed escape pod.

An unfinished ORC painting that I was doing on my lunches at work the other week. I got bored with it so this is where it ends!

For fun tonight.. I decided to paint some creatures inspired by some fruits and veg. I couldn’t think of a cool name for the tomato, but the Radish is RADIKULUS and the Avacado is.. AVACABRO. I also have no idea why they’re saying what they’re saying. Perhaps they’re trying to.. cheat life! ohohoho

Some more concepts… The Proportions are off and it’s  a bit wonky, but the concept is there. Somewhere!
