Thundercats is coming back!

Warner Brothers recently announced the exciting news that one of my childhood favorites, Thunder Cats, is being brought back next year. I remember this being one of the most influential cartoon to me as a kid. Funny thing is, I was blown away by how ambiguous the characters were when I saw a clip of Thunder Cats for the first time again since i was 3 or 4 on youtube. I coulda swore that they were bad ass to me back then!

As a practice run to making tutorial videos. I recorded the process of me redesigning Lion-O, the main character from the cartoon. Here's the image, I should be able to post the process video up once I get a chance to organize and edit it.

The original Lion-O (yay for speedos!):

Help me in a movement to better artists!

Hi Guys,

It's often hard to realize things while you're still a part of it, but I gotta say I wouldn't have gotten to where I am today without all the wonderful friends, instructors, and coworkers that helped me along the way. So, over the last couple years I have been constantly thinking about how I could give back to the community.

Recently, I started working on a big personal project trying to create some video tutorials for the community. it would be great if I could get some general census from all artists and designers. I made a simple 11 question survey that shouldn't take more than a couple minutes to go through.

It would help me figure out what people want to see the most and what is lacking the most in the market right now.

Please also pass this on to your friends and anyone you know that's involved in the design/art world. The more feedback I get the more accurate I would be able to pinpoint what everyone really wants to see. (here's a link to post around:



I got inspired to do this image on my way to work a while back when Lake Washington was covered with fog. Seattle really is one of the most beautiful cities to live in.

Halo Reach Interview

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my Halo artwork. The magazine cover I did was well received enough that GameInformer did an interview with me. The article covers some of the things I did at the studio, some of my work methods, and a brief walk through of how the cover was completed.

Also, the studio's been slowly revealing more about the game to the public, and that means more concept art for the fans as well. Here are two pieces of concept I did for one of the new multi-player maps in the game. Enjoy!

Also, don't forget to check out the Reach blog for regular updates and awesome artwork by our other concept artists!

one piece of concept from Halo Reach

I just noticed that this piece i did for Halo Reach a while back has been published on Game Reactor. There'll be more concept art goodies coming in the future as the studio reveals more info to everyone!

Game Informer Cover.

The guys at Bungie gave me an awesome oppertunity to work on Halo Reach's first magazine cover. I worked hand in hand with art director Aaron LeMay to create this final image that game informer used for their Feb. 2010 issue. What made this image more challening to execute was the fact that every detail needs to be rendered out for print. It was definitely interesting to see how far I can take the painting in the given time. I will try to give permissions to post some of the thumbnail and sketches to show the though process of creating the picture.

I hope all you Halo Fans like it :D
