Project Night, Uncategorized

I will return next week, some concept sketches, and dragon.

Above is some concept sketch for a character I was going to put in Project Night but later went a different direction. And a random dragon sketch.

It’s been a hellish past 2 months with friends and family moving away, surgery on my nose so I could breathe, loss of a contract, and other things, however, I will be back to posting artwork starting tomorrow. The break has brought some clarity regarding my art. I’m still working on Project Night, and after working on it off and on for 5 months, the prototype is almost complete.

Things I will be doing:

Tomorrow I will be uploading videos on my progress on Project Night.

Simplifying the menus on this site. Adding my 2 demo reels.

I will be working on a new comic/animation project after I finish the prototype. I’m conflicted between 2 ideas and having trouble deciding which one to move forward with. I miss having a project like this. I had some success with Alex and Cruz, so I’m hoping to take what I learned from it and keep moving forward.

Soon will be starting another blog dragondean.wordpress.com that will have more than just art related postings and will talk about my other interests such as video games, programming, my photos, the songs I wrote, cool things that I found, and other misc stuff. Maugryph.com will still be where I post  my artwork for now. I plan to post only once or twice a week on DragonDean but with more lengthy writing.

A Chip Izard blog for my music is coming soon as well as a YouTube channel that you can listen to.

Next week I will be  making a very small game within 24 hours, just to see if I can.

Mountains Concept(D44)

landscape-mtn-study

Messing around in Artrage with some concept art. I do like the realistic brushstrokes I can make with the software, but I haven’t figured out how to handle detail and refinement well.

Abstract Ollice Version 2 (D42)

abstract-ollice-3

After getting some sleep, I look at the painting and decided to see if I could push it farther. The spheroid changed into a fluffy, multi eyed, serpentine monstrosity. The painting now has a clear back, middle, and foreground, thanks to adding broken ship parts in the foreground, and painting the rest of the body in the back. I might have lost some of the spontaneity of the first one but think it is a better picture overall. Might push it even farther..

Project Night: Ruins Concept art (D31)

ruins-concept2-phatend

Some concept art for the ruins area of project dark. I’m debating if I should give it a jungle like environment or not. In old jungle ruins you see those large vines that take over buildings. I would like to incorporate that into the level if possible but I don’t know if I have the main power to make them. I drew a bird/lizard like creature because my brain wasn’t up to drawing a person tonight. Honestly for the world, what needs to considered is the fauna and flora in the world. It needs to be just a little exotic but still grounded in our world

Pokepeople Sketches (D28-29-30)

oh my arkeus character concepts first

Remember that Pokemon parody that I was working on but will probably never get around to animating? here are some characters for it.

I’ve been really busy with both commissions and my new job that I haven’t really gotten the chance to work a lot on my own projects like I wanted to.  I’ve spend about 20 minutes on each character. 2 on the first day, 2 on the second, inking and coloring on the third.
