Color tint and line

I drew these concept sketches in black line a few years ago when I was developing a project for a friend's newly formed game company. The project unfortunately never materialized. Recently I used some images for a lesson in tonally tinting hand drawn content with digital color during an online session.

Different kind of wizard

Hello there and I hope everything's great with you! It's nice to post some recent stuff. Going through a very busy period as of late but made some time to create mostly as a result of demos. One of my students came up with a suggestion that I draw a wizard pig character so I created this rotation during a session in character design.

Later on in subsequent sessions I took the idea a step further with straight ahead drawings in ball point pen to have fun with concept design and to keep my skills sharp. Drawing with a non-erasable medium is great practice.

View from my office studio

One of the things I'm most thankful for in life is a very simple pleasure that brightens my heart whenever I come into work. No matter what may be going on all I have do do is look straight ahead out the window I'm facing and enjoy this view...

What makes this special is what I'm looking out at on any given day. Here's a zoomed in shot with a description...

Every time I gaze upon this vista I'm humbly reminded as to how fortunate I am.
