Arboretum color studies
Didn't get to bed till about 3:00 last night but I told myself I would force myself up in the morning before it gets to hot and go do a little painting outside. So here are some gouache color studies in the cool morning. Now I need a nap.

Strange long hot day.
Today in Seattle we broke some heat records. It got up to 105 in my part of town, granted most people around here don't have AC and I am one of them. It's 97 right now in my house and I have two fans kicked on high blowing warm air on me, AWESOME! On Top of that it's been a very trying crazy sort of day. One of those days that produces major changes in ones life. But amidst all the turmoil I did these concept sketches, which seems all to fitting to my life right now.

Gouache color studies
I did these gouache color studies after work today. Hopefully more will be on the way soon as I was thinking of tackling the arboretum on the way to work one morning this week.

3 more
Few more concepts from the same project as the post below.
I know some people that have a huge list of games they have worked on that never made it to the store shelf. It's always a bummer especially when it comes to the resume. A lot of games get cut by the publisher or the game studio is so mismanaged and in turn poorly executed project getting it canned. This was from such a project. In the beginning the game concept was clean and simple with plenty of room for game play depth. I only ended up working on it for the demo to pitch to publishers but once it got sign I soon found a new job and avoided, what seems like now it's inevitable fate.
Style wise it was going to be fun and funky. these are some textures and a little concept that were for the demo.
