New Miscrits, and one for Monk’s Mountain!

Lot of stuff going on lately, time to take a break… ahhh, that was nice, back to work.

I hope you enjoy these new Miscrits for Volcano Island and Monk’s Mountain, I think that Zaptor is one of my favs of my own creation now, and I have 4-5 other Miscrits I’ve created for Monk’s Mountain that will soon be airing as well 🙂

Anyone that’s looked twice at my website has probably figured out I don’t update it very often.  I have so much going on with school and work and trying to have a LIFE that I just don’t have the time.  If I had my way, I’d actually revamp the entire thing and make it look much sleeker and more coherent, allowing the images themselves to stand out more.  But unfortunately I just don’t have that kind of time yet….HOWEVER, I do update my paintings and sketches from time to time, and I just recently totally reworked the layout of the sketches page, plus I added several new sketches never before shown.  I’ll definitely add more sketches and paintings in time, but as for the t-shirts, family art, and designs, those rarely get touched.  Actually, the Family Art page is the only other page I’ve updated since the creation of the site about 2-3 years ago.  I hope you like some of the new sketches, feel free to comment on my blog post if you want.

Jesus Suffering Painting

This was a painting for a client I created with Corel Painter 12, a fantastic program if you can get past the memory hogging and instability of it.  I’m not afraid to admit I felt a real connection when painting this.  To some it may sound kind of corny, but I felt as if Jesus were watching me for a moment, placing his hand on my shoulder, and saying “Nice work.” I don’t want to throw my religious ideals at any of you, so just enjoy the painting or don’t.  I just hope it stirs some emotion for those that are interested, as for the rest, it’s just an interesting painting style I did for a freelance client.

Miscrit Rejects!

Here are all of the Miscrit I’ve drawn up in the past 8 months that didn’t make it into the game for one reason or another.  Some of them may actually be revisited and end up in the game, but 95% of them will never see a more colorful existence than the sketchbook 🙁   I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed concepting them!

New Miscrits!!!

So these are the new Miscrits that I’m allowed to show.  Unfortunately I have twice as many as this, I just can’t show the rest of them yet.  Oh, you’ll get them eventually, but for the mean time check out these tough little Miscrits from Volcano Island.  Tune back in soon and I will next post sketches of the concepting that goes into creating a Miscrit.  I may even show some progress images of a Miscrit eventually if there’s enough interest?

Enjoy!

New Art from Miscrits, FINALLY! (Backgrounds)

So here it is, the moment of glory.  MISCRITS ARTWORK!!!  First we start out with backgrounds, here are all of the new fight backgrounds I’ve created in the past couple months.  Everything was painted in Adobe photoshop to fit the style of  Miscrits: Volcano Island, an awesome free Facebook game made by my employer, Broken Bulb Studios.  All the sketches are only posted here, so enjoy the newly released, never-before-seen awesomeness!

Tune in next time for actual MISCRITS!  …PLUS sketches/concepts that go behind the making of them.  Keep coming back and eventually I will release artwork for Miscrits that never made the cut and have only been seen by the super-human eyes of Broken Bulb Studios 😉

Crap, sorry I didn’t post

So a BUNCH of people came to my blog Dec. 13th, and I promised to have new art to show, but alas nothing was there.  It was just my luck that I got some sort of stomach virus on Dec 13th, and now I’m playing catch-up at work.  Not to mention, for those of you that are unaware, I’m also moving with my wife and puppy to a new Apartment THIS Saturday, so we’ve been doing a lot of packing in our free time.

Now… I know that though these are valid excuses, they are still excuses, you all logged on to find no new art and I apologize with exasperation.

I’M SO SORRY!

Ok, now that all my grovelling is out of the way, I assure you that I will be showing new artwork.  You may just have to give it a few days because of holidays, moving, and work, but I promise I’ll get them on here AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  I’ll try my darndest to get something by this Friday if I have time, at least a few pics for you to savor 😉

For all you artists and writers out there, especially when the two of you on occasion must work together, contracts are crucial to large projects.  In my experience it can be pretty difficult to find the information you need online without paying someone for it, and lawyers are just out of the question unless you are ready to drop $1000-2000 or more.  I’ve had clients who know lawyers who write up contracts, I’ve written up my own, searched around, and I’ve finally found some great information and combined two contracts with a few tweaks to make the ULTIMATE AIR TIGHT CONTRACT! (the originals were from a client and from blog.illustrationcastle.com)  This contract includes Royalties, Artist’s rights to a contract, the option to purchase a contract, NDA, protection for both parties, payment scheduling, advanced deposit, cancellation, survival, and much much more.  It’s about 7-8 pages long so it’s quite a read, but if you ever wanted an air tight contract that equally protects both sides and is fair, this is the contract for you!  Feel free to use it, modify it, or just learn from it!

 >>BEST Contract !

Where the hell have YOU been?

Well, I’m back from Jamaica, and it feels good to be home, but oh man do I miss that beautiful island. So yea, also, I did get married if you haven’t noticed 🙂 I never felt so much joy and stress in one time I swear. I wanted it to all be over so we could relax and enjoy my honeymoon (which I did) but now I come back and most of my friends and family are gone…and I don’t want it to be over lol I had a fantastic time and I miss all you all so much, especially everyone that couldn’t come. I had a blast.

Now you can all quit your pitiful weeping because I’m still here, I’m just extremely busy with so many things I haven’t been able to post.

…in the mean time there may be an image or two that pop up on here, but I will DEFINITELY HAVE ARTWORK by December 13th when the company I work for (Broken Bulb) releases it’s new Miscrits game.  There will be loads of artwork that I can finally show that has only been seen by a select lucky few! 😛
