joy to the middle-earth

A little doodle i got printed out for my wife.  We've both been big LOTR fans since we met when we were 16... Waited in line all day for the first 3 movies, etc.  So it's been fun kinda reliving that nostalgia a bit with The Hobbit now.  With two little hobbits now, of course..

If you'll let me wax poetic for a sec....

   I wanted to do a quick and fun doodle for my dad for christmas.  It's his last year of eligibility to be voted into the Hall of Fame, and my 7 siblings have started quite the offensive to speak up and make a case for him, after 15 years of silence. some recent articles/interviews/petitions:   here, here, here, etc.

   I'm a bit of a black sheep in the family, as my professional sports knowledge is nil, and my athletic prowess is nonexistent.  Most people are surprised to hear that my artistic side was actually fostered and encouraged by my Dad, but that's just the way he's always been with me.

  I'm not smart enough to argue his career, his numbers, or to compare him to other players (I only know a few others), and I can only remember bits and pieces of his career.  But I remember perfectly sitting in our art room in Georgia, tracing the outlines of our feet onto planks of wood, whittling sticks and bars of soap on the back porch, admiring my dad's doodles that he would do of all our names, and carving our initials into trees as we tried to hunt bats with our BB guns.

   I don't know if he'll get in the Hall, but... it really doesn't matter to me.

Max's haircut

When Max is sad but something makes him laugh, he gets this goofy look on his face... like his mind doesn't know whether it should be happy or sad. it's pretty cute.

sorry, more WoW stuff for my posterity:

Pandaria-- Rogue challenge armor

 I've been really lazy about getting work from Mists of Pandaria up here... I've got a lot to show, so I'll try and have it trickle out as quickly as possible.  OR you could just pick up the MoP art book and/or play the game to see it ;)

This is the final model and texture (flat lighting):

The quick concept i did beforehand:

A couple color shifts for good measure:

And a direction we almost went with it:

...... I have no idea what this dude is... a grown-up post apocalyptic boy scout?  An escaped convict, living off the land?  A presidential candidate? The possibilities are endless.

tryptic faces of death

this is an example of what happens when I start painting with nothing in mind. They never turn out how I want, and I wake up crying in shame, filled with regret.

but they're relaxing and a good way to mess around with color and all that stuff, i guess.
