Of Men and Mountains




I recently stumbled onto this little sketch in my "projects" folder. Usually, this is the place where my ideas and doodles get saved, sit, and eventually die. But sometimes the contents of this directory still inspire me....even many months later. So, I decided to revive it.

I vaguely remember my initial motivation, but I believe it began with asking myself: "What game do I want to make? ...or, what game would I want to play?"

So, I decided to stage this scene is as if it was from the POV of a third-person, in-game camera. I imagine this encounter really only as a precursor to a larger fight. A gate keeper. Sequences of blocks and attacks would eventually drive the beast back far enough for the player to take a divergent path and continue on their quest.

Hopefully this is the beginning of many more revivals. I'm looking at you 2011!

autumn falls


With summer gone and temperatures dropping it feels like a perfect time to bring out the oils. I spent two recent Sunday afternoons on this. Done en plein air at Bull Creek, a nice little spot just down the hill from my apt.

I did this simple sketch a while ago as a warm-up. I have no intention of exploring it further, so I thought I would share. I am working on some more "refined" pieces that I will hopefully be able to post soon.

bayfront


Came across this photo while digging through some old project files. I like the retro graininess. The photo really isn't that old, but definitely pre-digital.

Sketchbook

Most of my sketchbook work these days is the product of me in coffee shop/book store with my trusty Staedtler brush pen. Airports are good too. People tend to sit relatively still on layovers.
