Morgan Freeman Sketch

Hey everyone,

This is a sketch I started last week and I took the time to finish it tonight. I was watching THE DARK KNIGHT this morning and it reminded me of this sketch I put aside. I have to say it is one of my all time favorite movies. I am very excited about the third Batman movie coming out the summer of 2012. Hope you like it. Later.

Alex Alvarez

Hey everyone,

Here's another piece for my homage project. This is Alex Alvarez. He's the Director, Instructor, President, CEO of The Gnomon School of VFX, The Gnomon Workshop, Gnomon Studios, Gnomon Gallery, Sketch Theatre, and CGChannel. I owe so much to the Gnomon Workshop. Their instructional DVD's have really helped me grow as an artist and have helped me push my art to a new level. If you haven't checked them out, make sure that you do. You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend joining the monthly challenges on the forums. You can compete and win loads of DVD's for free. It's awesome. Hope you like it.

HP Lovecraft

Hey everyone,

This is my entry to the October 2D image challenge on thegnomonworkshop.com forums. The them of the challenge is HP Lovecraft. He is a very popular gothic horror writer from New England. HOWARD PHILLIPS LOVECRAFT (20 August 1890–15 March 1937) is probably best known as a writer of weird fiction, but some believe his voluminous correspondence to be his greatest accomplishment. Hope you like it.

Chow 217 - The Underground Tribe

Hey everyone,

This is my entry to CHOW # 217. The Underground Tribe. Many generations ago, radiation and heat forced the people to live underground. Endless networks of tunnels connect the population of Underearth. Having been deprived of real sunlight has changed their appearance, and their looks have been influenced by the scarce resources found in the deep caverns and tunnels. Even though life is hard, the people of Underearth are a resourceful and optimistic tribe. Hope you like it.
