After looking at the wonderful portfolio of Drew Struzan (The artist who did movie posters for Star Wars, Indianna Jones, Harry Potter etc.), there was one image on his website that really stuck out for me; its actually one of the first images that you see when you go to his site. Its an image of himself in this very intense moment... like the calm before the storm, we see the great artist in this pose where he's about to paint something. That pose is something quite monumental for a painter such as myself (I say that with the least amount of cocky-ness lol). Its a pose where your in that moment of excitement and hesitation... of technicality and expression... of structure and sheer spontaneity... all interwoven into one gesture of the body.
Could this be something of a self-portrait maybe? Yea you could say that. I do like the 18th-19th century painters, and I also miss and love my long hair and beard haha. Anyways, enjoy!

So after a week-long session of work, I finally get the opportunity to sit down and sketch out something. The Assassin's Creed project is still on my mind (as you can kinda tell), but what i'll probably do is post more sketches now post more sketches here and there of whatever comes to my mind. I still have some more Assassin's Creed ideas that I want to try and get on the electronic canvas, but right now sketches will be the bulk of my summer works. Oh and i'll still be taking photos here and there and posting them on my other website dealy. Anyways, enjoy!

So over the past few days, I was sketching out some ideas for this Assassin's Creed thing i'm doing with Mike, and being overwhelmed with all of it, I decided to turn to photography for a bit. I'm hoping to post some more picture on my photo site, but i'm still in the process of organizing some sessions, and taking care of other stuff as well. So until then, Assassin's Creed pictures lol. Anyways, enjoy!

Here is another character sketch for the Assassin's Creed Project i'm working on. Mike originally came up with the idea of the bowler's hat, but I wanted to also preserve this dark and mysterious quality in the character as well. Anyways, enjoy!
