Beyond the Dead iOS

 Back in May I started working at GREE Canada. It's a new Canadian studio. And our first game is beyond the dead.  It's a zombie survival RPG. And some really amazing artist worked on it. Really inspiring stuff, these are some of the paintings I've done for it. I'll post more stuff as it gets release as were always adding new things to the game. I did mainly the backgrounds but I got to dabble in the character a bit.

 The daily speed paint group on Facebook. Simple rules, no photos, 30 min paintings. These are challenging and super fun. Some of these were over the allotted 30 min and some I never posted because they took well north of 40min.  And some were even taken down by the moderators of the group, rules are rules.  And as you can see some were more success then others. Also there is plenty that were attempted and never warranted to be saved because of how badly I failed. I've learned a lot about how I paint and what if any process I follow. In the future I'll try to post these on the month they were done because, this is a pig post.

it’s been a minute, well a couple at least… Between feedings, work, sleep, and changing diapers. I squeezed in 2 hours to do some sketching and painting. Oh man and it was a hard fought 2 hours. If I get more time I would like to take this one further. (probably won’t so I’ll just do another painting)
Also been doing a lot of photo mash so it was nice to just let the brushes do the painting

City, cars, tunnels, "in the future"

Needed to finish this one.  It's been in the hard drive for a while waiting for me to get back to it.  It's been there for a year I think.

Normal and Advanced II

More from Galaxy Saga card game. These were challenging making a guy wear a holigraphic mask. Fun to think up the armor and the weapons though.

Normal and Advanced

So this finishes the trilogy of work from free lancing in 2012. I got contacted by a very cool Japanese company to do some work for a Sci fi card game. I work on these on the weekend and there a real treat from rough to finish it's always a challenging but only in the best possible way.

Project Halo 4 ... Terminals

© 2012 The Sequence Group

 So freelancing it's crazy. I had the privilege to get to work on Halo 4 in my own small way. I never thought I would have a small part of something so big but this is how free lancing goes. You never know the opportunities that can come up.
The great folks over at Sequence contacted me to assist on the backgrounds for the in game terminal animations for Halo 4. Day in and day out painting and learning,  painting and learning. It was Awesome.  It was also one of the most challenging things I've ever done, there was so much work to do and we had to get smart on painting these efficiently.  These are a few of the background and shots I did. Big thanks to Andrew (AD) Graeme, Jace, and the producers Ian and Dan, 343 industries, and everyone else that worked on it, it was super fun.

Here is the Demo reel and big shout out to the animators and compositors they killed it too.
Congrats to 343 Halo 4 turned out great
