Ethereal


This is Etherea,l a jellyfish space mermaid. I did this piece for the Calgary Expo artbook. It was fun to do because I was experimenting with a new technique. Its a combination of acrylic stain, colored pencil, and oil.

Art of Character Design DVD Available now!





My new DVD Art of Character Design Volume 1 has officially launched. It debuted at San diego Comic Con in San Diego and sold over 100 copies!!! woohoo . The response has been strong. With almost 4 hours of demos it is packed with knowledge and techniques that everyone can benefit from. A series of 5 demos where some are 1.5 hours long. I discuss my approaches as you watch me draw and design talking about things that are important like character development, personality...etc. Here is a list of the demonstrations:

Character Design From Life
Graphic and Iconic Design Style
Shape and Form Design
Who vs What
Bringing Life and Personality to Your Character


The DVD is not up on my store site yet,BUT YOU CAN STILL GET IT by contacting me directly VIA EMAIL:

Whats even better is that you can get it from me for only $20.00!!!(versus $30.00 retail) I like to make my products affordable when I can. Domestic shipping will be an extra $5.00 and international will be $10-20(depending on country)
