Legend Redesign

So school started again, and in one of my classes we are being asked to redesign a story of our choosing.  I am doing an "updated" redesign of Ridley Scott's Legend -- paying homage to the original designs while embellishing on them (or in some cases changing them).

I kinda feel like these aren't done yet, but they are as done as they are going to be for the time being:

Still polishing the final illustration, so stay tuned.

As a bonus, here's a couple digital landscape paintings I did for a class I am taking with Robh Ruppel.  Robh is a truly amazing teacher that I cannot speak highly enough of.  He has somehow broken down a subject matter that I have had unending difficulty with into bite-size chunks.

Trying to get as much as I can out of three values / no fancy brushes:

A color study of the same subject matter at different times of the day.  I was trying to get as accurate-to-life color as possible, while keeping the paintings relatively simple:

Thanks for looking!

End of Summer Update

Well, school started again this week, so I figured I should put up some of the stuff I've been sitting on for a while.

Another creature for Jerad's class -- a redesign on Pumpkinhead.  Getting the anatomy right on this guy was certainly a struggle.  I'm not used to doing horror-type creatures, so this was a nice change of pace (and fun!):

A closeup of the same piece:

I have more that I probably should show, but I want to polish a bit before I send it out into the world wide web.  Stay tuned!

*EDIT* So, I checked this out on my laptop, and it looks pretty dark (losing a lot of information).  It looks fine on my desktop, so please let me know if its dark on your monitor, and I'll throw a lightened version up.  Thanks!
