That big news I mentioned...

Just letting you guys know that I got a job (3 month contract to hire) at Zynga, doing 2D art for their Mafia Wars game :D. Because of that, I'm moving back to the bay area on Friday - woot!

Also, I was invited to join a speed painting blog called SpeedSpot which was a pretty damn cool surprise. Take a look - there are some really incredible artists posting there :)

A sketch...

Just testing out a 'new' brush I made from watching a tutorial vid on Dave Rapoza's blog. There isn't anything too special about it but it's pretty cool to sketch with - and I used some old brushes as well.

Hopefully I'll have some big news to post soon... :D

Edit: ... and another sketch - I really need to get back to UEC if I want to have any chance of finishing haha. For some reason I'm just way more interested in characters this week.

Unearthly Challenge

Hey art people - I just wanted to let you peeps know that Gameartisans.org has started their Unearthly Challenge, which is an environment challenge almost as big as the dominance war. I highly recommend joining if you are interested in 2D concept design or 3D modeling. http://www.unearthlychallenge.com/2009/en_index.php

If you join and apply yourself, I gaurantee you will better your artistic ability, learn important presentation skills, and get better at giving/recieving feedback. If you join up, let me know so I can follow your thread as well!

Here is a link to my thread as well as my first thumbnail page.
