Is our cat.  He loves to pee on our things and scratch under the door but sometimes he can be pretty hip. Tomorrow (or I guess today) he gets neutered. good luck Tobias Human Knives Chau Murtcurf Metcalf (missing some but that's his full name) also please stop peeing on our stuff.

I'm super tired for some reason and am headed bed.  For that reason i'm posting these sketches i've had laying around for tonight's submission. sleep!

For the Fro

As part of a challenge from some friends at work, this is day one of what will be a post every day for the next week.  Definitely got started late on this one and i'm hesitant to even post it, but I gotsta! I thought i'd start off attempting something festive so I painted this Frankenstein's monster and tried to play around with CS5's mixer brush tool.

Blizzcon Round Two!

So last year I went to Blizzcon and it was, in a word, "dope".  When I describe it to Jo I always tell her it's kind of like a nerdy version of Disneyland - complete with orcs, guns and body oder.  So, this year my family bought me another ticket and I'm going with my brother Mike. I painted this up in anticipation - it's my version of a Terran Marine from Starcraft.

Dungeons and or...


This started as a lunch study when Garrett Hanna walked into my room and said, "hey wanna draw a dragon?" Then he punched me in the face and I haven't seen him since. This one's for you Garrett.

Conan O'Brien I love you.

Jo and I went and saw Conan O'Brien's new movie tonight, afterwards he came out and did some question and answer! It was a dream come true for sure, as Jo and I are huge fans. We got a picture with him and talked a little. picture to come soon!

Aside from that, I've been trying to paint when I have time after work. Not sure how much further i'll take this one but here it is for now.

Quick Draw Friday

I started my first week at Carbine Studios on Monday. It's an amazing place, sooo many talented artists and a lot of really cool work to do. Still learning the ropes and trying to figure out programs and everything, but things are going great.

Every Friday is Quick Draw Friday, where a subject is sent out and everyone has their lunch hour to come up with something. This was my first shot, the subject was Tim Burton, so I decided to paint Sweeney Todd.

California Love (Feat Dr. Dre)

I have officially arrived at my new home... kind of. We don't move in for a couple more weeks but I am currently living in a box filled apartment with Tyson Murphy aka. MURPH. California is a excellent place by the way, but I am missing my wife very much. Anyways! I'm trying to be productive so I made this here truck:

Missile Mouse

So Jake Parker, AKA Agent44, taught at BYU this last semester and I had the opportunity to take a couple classes from him. He told me he'd do a sketch exchange with me if I drew him Missile Mouse - so here it is. If you're looking into classes for next semester take from him! Awesome dude and hands down one of my favorite teachers. wurd!

A couple weeks ago I accepted an offer to be a 3D artist on the prop team at Carbine Studios and I have to say, I could not be more excited. This is a dream come true for me. Since I was young it's always been my dream to work on video games, more specifically MMOs. The people at carbine are incredibly talented and I feel extremely grateful to being a part of their team. Thanks everyone who's helped me along the way! I owe a lot of people for all the help and support - Avalanche, BYU, Polycount, family and especially my wife Jo, who can only be described as "the dopest".

See you soon California!

I've been trying to brush up on zbrush and improve my sculpting a bit. This was a quick study I did recently.

Thursday, March 24, 2011


My brother recently made me an awesome website (found here: ) and in exchange he asked me to draw him a robotic hamster for his personal use. I should really fix the mickey mouse ears.

Jack Failed Attempt No. 1

Gotta keep count! there will be more to follow. I started this out just to kinda paint something/warm up before I did other work and hoped I could have it double as my homework for Jack and the Beanstalk concept art. but alas.... I made this first one, and then when things started to go south I jumped ship and zombie'd him up good. also it was a keen opportunity to use my recently acquired chain brush, which sort of makes him look like Jacob Marley, but i'm pretty sure most paintings could do with a little more Jacob Marley.
