This is something I've been picking away at since like October, and just now finally putting the finishing touches on it. This gun-blade belongs to a disgraced battlefield commander who refused to order the slaughter of innocent natives in an alternate timeline where people obviously had the awesome idea to combine swords and guns.
He then was hailed as a hero by the Natives population and engaged in guerrilla tactics to drive his former comrades from the area.

I'm a fan of this type of vehicle, so I thought I'd do a quick sketch of it. Based incredibly loosely on the below sketchbook scan from a half a year ago.
The original sketch...
After some Photoshop work.
Wasn't quite liking the look of the car, or the portrait composition.

In preparation for a job application, I decided to revisit Adobe After Effects and see what I could create to get back into the swing of things, get to know the program again. This is the result, a short little ad for a fictional fuel company. I took a couple days to plan out and time it using Flash and developed most of it in A.E., the character animation was done quickly in Flash. Enjoy!

Hey Folks! I figured I'd clean up an old sketch of mine I found to have a good vibe for the summer. Took the greater part of a day to finish this one. I will be posting it to my DeviantArt Apocol0id for prints! I made this one in vector format at a whopping 3500px x 2700 px so printing at 9x12 should look pretty stellar.
And get out there and hit the beach!

Hello folks, I've been pretty busy lately doing some freelance work through a local company called SpectraMedia. One potential client said I should re-do a sword I once did (Seabane) in the Darksiders II art style, as a sort of art test. This was the result! Enjoy!

So, occasionally I'll dream something very cinematic. I dreamt a city near my hometown was being invaded by robotic dragons, so we resurrected a World War II battleship and outfitted it with land-crawling technology (for whatever reason made sense...you know, in the dream). I spent a morning doodling out what I'd seen in the dream, before it became hazy and disappeared.

My brother-in-law is a Prepper, that is to say, he prepares. He collects such things as rations, medical supplies, emergency stuff. Mainly for survival during unforseen events, be it nature or war or what have you.
Anyway- for his birthday I thought I'd play on this idea, and give him a pic to put up in his den or office. This is the result. Enjoy!

More Fallout inspired goodness. I like the tongue in cheek humor of the game, and I thought I'd use that 'nuclear age humor' in a poster for women's makeup products. Tried to limit my color palette to just one red, one yellow, and a near-charcoal-black so the texture would show up better. Enjoy!

This is based on a song by Devin Townsend off his album 'Ziltoid the Omniscient'. In this song, Ziltoid awakens the Sixth Dimensional Planet Smasher, who ignores his pleas to destroy a planet 'for the fun of it'.
I was feeling the need to be more spontaneous and humorous to get the creative juices going again, so I decided this was the best thing to do to kickstart that.

A couple buddies and I are starting a sketch jam, this weeks topic was Total Recall (the only good one) in the style of Adventure Time. A fun style, and a fun movie.

Since I'm between jobs at the moment, I'm doing a series of characters and environment concepts for a personal project. It's an old-timey four-class shooter or adventure game, not sure at the moment. This is character one of four, The Poison Woman, or Anastasia B. Crowley.
A woman of her mid-sixties, Crowley traveled the world in search of exotic poisons to use in her trade, as she is somewhat of a black widow. Having married and murdered twenty husbands in the last decade, (don't give me that look, they all had it coming) she's taken a bit of a break. After receiving a mysterious invitation, she's set her sights on a mysterious mansion perched atop a gloomy hill. There, three other unique characters have gathered to figure out/fight for the secret of the mansion.
What is it? No one knows.
Save for one person.
His name is Colonel William J. Bonkers.
And this is his mansion.

I've been playing a lot of Skyrim. I'm usually a Sci-Fi Fanboy, but somehow I gave it a chance. It's fun to say the least. And awesome to say the most. I got a Scimitar in the game and thought I'd run with the idea of a very pirate-like sword.
It might be enchanted. I dunno.

At work we've started a monthly sketch jam (started like 3 months ago) and this month's topic was 'steampunk muppets'.
Sweetums is pretty much the most badass of all the muppets, so I figured he'd benefit from having a machine gun arm.
Which is also a muppet.

Just busy with work. Mostly. And Fallout.
To show I'm not dead- here's a lunch project of mine I've been concocting over a period of three or four lunch hours. Enjoy!
Update: This and other designs are now on http://conceptships.blogspot.com
Many thanks to them!
The SDI Alleycat was a low-speed, low-altitude multipurpose attack bomber manufactured by SOL Industries Inc. on the third moon of Jinn, a planet in the Beta Cluster. They were used for active combat during:
The Third Civil Uprising
The Wyvernian Conflicts
Aging Alleycat fighter-bombers are still used by Mekkan Resistance members in their fight against the Mekkan Regime.
Some recon versions have the weapon equipment replaced with electronic countermeasures as well as camera equipment.
Civilian versions are used as fireships, trainers, and border patrol.

Aquid are a flocking creature local to Wyvern, a low grav planet in Beta Cluster. They are a prized delicacy and are commonly collected in groups by Chinese and Japanese spacers. The organ that produces propellant is used as a soup additive and the propellant actuator flaps contain meat that 'can cure aging effects' (known superstition, unproven.)
Earth-Based animal rights group PETA (founded 1980) protests these harvests, as Aquid are known to possess great intelligence, and despite their aggressive appearance, a peaceful nature. As of 2323, there are fewer than 1,000,000 Aquid on Wyvern.
