Bioshock:Infinite - Fan Art

Had a shot at doing a bit of fan art conceptual stuff for the upcoming Bioshock: Infinite.

This is my take on a turn of the century "Splicer"

I'm in the process of playing through Bioshock 2 again. Man, i love the Bioshock games.

Great narrative, design and general creative vision.

I've now played through both games twice (which is a big call for me). Its inspired me to put together this piece of fan art...

character sketch cont'd

Trying to get a more interesting disticnt shape to the character...

character sketch


I bought Bolt on dvd today.

It's one of the few non Pixar CG films that i really love (and How to train your dragon of course).

The lighting and backgounds are magnificent and the characters are fantastic.

I noticed in the extra features that John Lasseter played a significant role in this film so I wonder if that was a major contributing factor to quality of this film.

Whatever the reason tho, I loved it. As a dog lover I really bought into the characters, and then there's "Rhino" who would have to go down as one of the true awsome cg characters in film.

Did a bit of sketching as i watched trying to nail the character of Bolt.

A coupla scribbly works in progress...

The sockmonster

Did this lil fellow for A wacom "Anime monster contest".

I swear this creature is real, but as to whether it would look

like this I can only speculate.

Consider it, an artist's impression. :)

Bic: Express Yourself entry

Did up this sketch for the Bic: Express Yourself competition, where you had to create a drawing from a predetermined squiggle. I actually made a point to use only Bic products for this (4 colour pen, Kids colour pencils, and a 4x4 Grip Permanent marker). It certainly created some different challenges to drawing solely onto the computer with the wacom tablet.

I must say though I am a big fan of sketching with ballpoint pen.

Cuddles and Blacky

Have got a bit of correspondence lately from some kids who have discovered that I did the designs for the Pawphans plush. Its always great to get letters, photos and illustrations from the kids who collect and play with the product. I reckon it has to be the primary motivating factor to what we do in the toy industry.

I always try to respond to their letters and draw them up a sketch with their own characters in.

Here's one I did just recently for a girl named Amy who sent me her sketches of her Pawphans "Cuddles" and Blacky".

Sketch in a cafe

Have not had any time of late for any personal drawings but did manage to squeeze out this scribble the other day while I was sitting down at a cafe for coffee.
