For my final project in Visual Development we got to pick any short story from three authors, design the characters and create three to four illustrations based on story moments. I chose No Particular Night or Morning, by Ray Bradbury. The following is a selection of development work, character turnarounds and four moments that I felt told a cohesive and complete story. My character designs were inspired by local retro-future-rockabilly band, The Phenomenauts.

Speed paints from Attack the Block
The first big project for my visual development class, based on a news story of a kitten that escaped a pack of dogs by hiding under the hood of a car.
The second project was to create an environment based on the Alien movies, based on a photograph we took of structures on our college campus.
This was my first semester of modeling in Maya, where we modeled, textured and lit a Webley & Scott Flare Gun
A selection of grizzlies from a zoo day with bear designer extraordinaire, David Colman.
Turnarounds for Darkness and Dekay
A strikingly accurate portrayal of me during finals. Also for Greg Goodson's Oni Meme on Tumblr
A new character for a comic I'm developing. His name is Hiro, he likes hip hop, slaying vampires and anime.
A little fanart for possibly my new favorite show, Gravity Falls. The quote is from a TJ Miller (voice of Robbie) stand up gig I went to a few months ago.
Sketched by the wonderful Brittany Hayden, colored by me.
And of course an assortment of things from my sketchbooks
