Prometheus and the Proto-xenomorph

There are many beautiful things in Prometheus but the protoxenomorph left me unsatisfied:

.So, I painted my own version
I dedicate this post to Ray Bradbury who taught me that we ARE the martians.

Spaceship Dedication


This past week saw the loss of both Ralph McQuarrie and Moebius. So Colin Geller and I decided to paint some spaceships as a dedication to them. I copied two things constantly in my drawings as a kid: Star Wars and Heavy Metal Magazine. The work of these two men did not only influence us but are often the main reason we are in this industry in the first place.

For some reason I cant stop drawing space suits. Maybe it's cause i wanted to work on Deadspace or the new Alien movie. There is a powered exo-frame attached to the suit for lifting heavy objects or high gravity environments.

Seminar Demo



I did a demo over at the Laguna college of art and design yesterday, representing the Concept Design Academy. I redesigned the spider from The Mist. The Mist was an amazing story from Stephen King's anthology Skeleton Crew.

I began with showing how I create a composition within the design. This is stuff I normally do subconsciously but I made it more apparent for the purposes of the demonstration. I paid attention to the relationships of proportion, creating a hierarchy of triangles so the elements either framed each other or emphasized where I wanted the viewer to look, rather than fighting each other for attention. the low slung composition gives the impression that it is capable of quick scuttling movement and the giant fang/claws frame the mandibles. I made the mandibles smaller and overlapping to give it a creepier look having the smaller mouth parts slide over each other while eating and to have more mass variance in the face.

I would like to thank the Laguna college of art and design staff, students, and visitors for welcoming me and showing me a good time.
