Into the Vault

So as more of the work I'm taking on is under stricter NDAs, I'm heading to the vault today to find some stuff that hasn't been shown before.
So this piece started life as a project pitch image, done fairly hastily for the purpose. Then a few months ago during a lull in my work I pulled this out and worked up some of the elements I was never happy with and pulled together the background a bit better. So, give it a few more years and maybe I'll fix some more stuff and I'll finally have something.

 On an unrelated note, as professional work takes up more of my time, it gets harder to find time for personal work, so I have to make a conscious effort to make room in the schedule for it. So here's my list of priority works that I'd like to get to this year:

- more zombie related work
- a 40's pulp cover piece with dames and whatnot
- a follow up to the whale sub piece that follows the continuing zany adventures of the whale sub
- something giant robot related

That's all I got for now, but I'm open to suggestions if anyone's got any bright ideas.

New Year, New Stuff

So in the name of progress, I've finally gotten myself a new wacom tablet, finally retiring my trusty old 6x8 which I've had for about 8 years. In it's place, I've gotten a shiny new intuos 4 tablet in a large size:

It's pretty nice with a cool display and customizable stuff and even an assortment of nibs to give different feels across the surface of the tablet. It also can be flipped to accommodate south paws, which is much appreciated.

 Of course, getting a new wacom always takes a bit of time to get used to, so whenever I've gotten new ones at work, I usually open up a new doc and doodle away a bit to get the feel right. So that's what I did today and in the interest of ringing in the new year, I'm posting it here for your viewing pleasure:

Now, you may be asking yourself: " Is this a picture of Chewbacca puking on Charles Darwin?"

Let me assure you that is exactly what that is.
