Thundercats ho!

Between punching polarbears and fending off the yeti here in the southern regions of the norselands, I drew some stuff for WB’s new Thundercats show.

Here’s my concept art for the lizardman mecha that appears in the series. The show version ended up quite a bit chunkier though, as you can see.

I’ll try to post some more stuff as they pop up in the series.

UDON Mega Man Tribute

In February I submitted this entry for Udon Entertainment's MEGA MAN TRIBUTE book, and it made it in! Now that the book has premiered at Comic Con, I have permission to post the piece online.

The book features over 300 artists paying tribute to one of video-gaming's most cherished characters. I'm proud to have made the cut and am honored to be featured among so many fantastic artists. For my piece, I wanted to focus on a relatively unusual character (i.e. not just draw Mega Man or Zero). I decided to draw Tengu Man, one of my favorite Robot Masters doubly featured in "Mega Man 8" and "Rockman & Forte." The illustration depicts a mecha-styled Tengu Man design in his stage from Mega Man 8, accompanied by a Tencrow and a trio of Metall SVs.

UDON has uploaded a number of the entries to their Deviantart gallery: http://udoncrew.deviantart.com/gallery/

You can also find the piece on my own Deviantart gallery:
