Knight Doodle V1

Noodling around in Photoshop for the first time in a while. I'd like to do a little more to this so there may be an update in the future if time permits.

Sorry for the hiatus. I've been nerding-out and building an Iron Man 2 "War Machine" costume. Now that Halloween past and the mad-rush to get the suit to a wearable level is out of the way I'll be posting some more art.
My wife got me an iPad and I'm learning some of the drawing/painting apps right now and they seem really fun so expect updates on that.

If anyone wants to know more about how I built the costume, I'm documenting the process over on the replica prop forum. --click the link!

LEGO Star Wars III - "CHARGE" TV Spot

This is a Lego Star Wars III commercial I got to work on.
Being that I am a HUGE Star Wars fan this has been one of my favorite projects.
Thanks to Chris and Chad from The Core LA for hiring me for the job and David Luong for recommending me. Also, thanks to LucasArts for posting this on youtube! 

BTW, looks better set to HD and full screen! 

For this project I did the matte painting, projection mapping and environment modeling.

Star Wars Charge Spot

Here are a few photos I took while working on the project

I'll updated this post with some making-of and some screen shots ASAP.
