1920's Character Design

These design were inspired and influenced by HBO's Boardwalk Empire, if you haven't seen it, you should.
 The corrupt politician, Rotation
 Last pose sucks because I had to have a walking pose... had no clue what to do.
 The Politicians henchman, Rotation
This guy carries out all of the politicians not so legal work, in a very rough and oafish fashion.

Viking Cartoon Design

Weight lift and toss

Ominous Exterior Painting

Recently was on a viking kick, read a few books, did some research, thus inspired this painting ... even though theres no viking in it, haha.
I was going for an ominous feeling in this scene, so i thought by making the layout gloomy and the trees look dead that the viewer would come up with their own story as to what happened to the viking.

Interior Study with Characters

 The drawing, after many thumbnails I decided to go with the upshot because it gives the clearest visual to the little story going on.
 My intention going in to this painting was to do something graphic, the top tonal is an attempt to create dramatic lighting while keeping it simple. The bottom tonal is more of a realistic attempt at rendering
Had a lot of fun doing these colour study's on the massive cintiq's at school. As much as i liked the top colour study I ended up sticking with my initial idea of a graphic style.
Painted with all the technical skill I could muster, still fell short of my projected expectation from the previous study's. Gouache with ink line art on top.
