I have many art traditions that I like to keep on top of every year. One of them being the annual Ghostbusters pic, the Christmas Story art and last but not least...my homage to the Nintendo Entertainment System (It really spans all of Nintendo's systems, but the 8-Bit is still king!). First it was Super Mario Bros, then The Legend of Zelda. This year I actually started two games, and decided to truck forward with one that has a little more "punch." I'd say this is about half done so far, with another handful of characters to join such as Doc, Dragon Chan, Mr.Sandman and Bear Hugger. It's nice to switch up styles once and a while so things stay fresh. When working in this style I really try to focus on the flow of lines. How they go into each other and overlap with color. I'm pushing the colors more this time as well, giving each character a larger palette than in the two previous NES pics. Let me know your thoughts! Aside from this, there are a few other cool things on the horizon. I'll keep you posted :)

In lieu of the new Indy movie due out in a few weeks, I've done up a few sketches. There are really so many scenes in the movies that make for great interpretation but I settled with these three. I'll do a fourth one after I see the movie and post that up too. Cheers!

It's been a while since the last post. Not too much to report though, keepin busy and enjoying the fact that the sunny weather has finally decided to make an appearance this year. Perhaps that image above can help keep ya cool in the heat? It's a detail of a larger pic, and will hopefully have that done within a few months. I'm hoping to start up another Nintendo piece, similar to the Zelda and Mario ones. I'll post some roughs of that soon.
Also, the Power Girl animation that I did for DC is up and on their myspace page. Swing by here:
